the answer will decide which one i should buy.
I like a nice stiff switch for both gaming, & typing. So I would say so.

I bottom out much less with the MX-Clears and I've only had them for a small period of time.

one more question..
black switches doesn't fail very good for typing aite?
i just want balance.
i know deck is awesome and have 1 year warranty..
+ back light + maybe one of the best quality keyboard...they made.
so black not really good typing right? just good for gaming right?
There is no way I was going to wait any longer. All it takes is one lightning strike.

Anyway: only generally speaking, the Cherry MX Blacks are better for gaming than typing, and the Cherry MX Blues are better for typing than gaming. The Cherry MX Browns are a good middle ground. But even so, it's possible for somebody to have a strong preference for the Cherry MX Blacks when it comes to just typing.

The Cherry MX Clears in the "tactile" Deck boards are probably going to require a similar amount of force to press that your ABS M1 has. Except, it will be a superior typing and gaming experience. After all, the force required to press the Cherry MX Clears is said to be 55g which is only 5g less than the actuation force of the ABS M1's switches (and also 5g less than the Cherry MX Blacks). In other words, the Cherry MX Clears are like the Cherry MX Browns, but stiffer.

How much more would you like the ABS M1 if the switches required noticeably less force to press them?

How much more would you like the ABS M1 if the switches required noticeably less force to press them?
probably $45

If it is possible for any potential Mech. KB owners to purchase a Mech. KB from their local Fry's or Microcenter, do it. Most B&M stores have good return policies, so if you don't like it, return it. Making choices by watching YouTube really does no justice to how a particular switch type of Mech. KBs truly feel. Watching YouTube to decide which type you like best is like telling someone to watch porn to get a feeling for how intercourse feels.

Are you a student? They offer student discounts if you can provide proof (usually a student ID). It's about 24% off, so you can buy the Das Pro Silent for about $102, which even includes shipping. That's the only reason why I am buying from Das.

OT:
I just came back from the best live show I've been too ( been going to various shows since HS, which has been around 10 years or so now ). Rage Against the Machine put on a show to protest SB1070 of Arizona. I think they raised about 300k for grassroots campaigns fighting SB1070. The energy of the band and crowd was unreal. Anyways, here's my souvenir from the show:

It's completely up to you. It's almost like asking others what condiments to put on your food: it's a personal decision.

Is that what they mean by tactile ergonomic...the fact that it's tactile, yet "lighter"?
