On the original post, the brown switches are labeled as tactile ergonomic. It's on the graph.

Where? I loaded the first page and performed a Ctrl+F search for "ergonomic", and I only found one match on the entire page and it wasn't talking about switch types.

Help?


Edit: I found it. I really don't know why it says "ergonomic". I guess I just think that it's unimportant. That's just what Cherry says about this switch type.

Oh, well anyways, I've watched this video over and over, and I can't get over how awesome it sounds.

YouTube- Das Keyboard Ultimate Review
This video also amplifies the clicky goodness.

Trying really hard to find the Das Silent model, but it's nowhere to be found, except for, again, that video from that misinformed person .

Yeah, and he doesn't even press any keys. But meh, most boards with the Cherry MX switches sound similar enough anyway.

I am the same way with the Cherry MX Blues though: every time I would focus my attention on videos of Cherry MX Brown keyboards and then suddenly switch to Cherry MX Blue keyboard videos, my heart fluttered or something (like hearing the my favorite type of female voice or something). I thought I was becoming a fruitcake or something, but damn: I just love that click! I also love the way it feels to type.

So that's pretty much when I knew I was going to get a keyboard with the Cherry MX Blues. So at that point, I kept doing more research just to make sure I knew I was making the right choice. After a while, I found that I just couldn't take my mind off my desire to have the Cherry MX Blues and I also found myself falling in love with the Majestouch and the rest is history.

So you said that most keyboards should sound the same if they have the same switches...meaning that if I watched a video for the Majestouch Tactile Touch keyboard, and listened to the sound it makes, it should be similar or the same to that of the Das Keyboard Silent model.

Now of course, there are certain times when they don't sound the same and I have observed this with the Scorpio vs. the Das Keyboard non-Silent model. Many people have said the sound of the Das Keyboard non-Silent model is higher-pitched vs. that of the Scorpio.

Sometimes it's noticeably different, but yet still similar.

Like, I noticed from watching all of those videos that the Das Model S (not the Silent) has a slightly higher-pitched click to the switches than the Majestouch Tactile Click. However, they still have a similar sound to each other.

Indeed. They're almost like quality musical instruments.

Hmmm...well IDK. I'll still have to do some research but I am still leaning towards buying the non-Silent model over the Silent model. I am unfortunately a selfish person so I have no compassion towards those who will have to suffer from the typing noise, so noise is of no problem. I do love to type and I type a lot, more than I do gaming. It's probably split between 60% typing, 40% gaming. And even if it proves to be a hindrance for gaming, everything takes some getting used to. Perhaps, in time, I will learn to game proficiently with Blue switches if I won't already game proficiently upon receiving it.

Ha, being selfish is a good thing for picking out a mechanical keyboard. That way you get the one that suits you best.

But yeah, it sounds to me like a good keyboard with the Cherry MX Blues or Buckling Springs or Cherry MX Browns would be the best choice. But it sounds like your heart is set on the Das Model S! And y'know something, even though I love my Majestouch, I often wonder what it would be like to have that Model S Professional especially now that it has the two Windows keys! I mean, I didn't like it before because it had the Fn key where the left WinKey goes, and that was the primary reason I avoided the Das Model S.

Maybe someday I'll buy one if I can afford it!
