Anyway, tactile feedback means that there is a little bit of resistance near the beginning of the keystroke as you push down, and then once you go down past that little bit of resistance, it suddenly stops resisting. It's kinda like a "bump" during the downward part of the keystroke. So when performing a normal keystroke, it adds some precision to the feeling. It's not that it increases the precision, but it just makes it feel nicer - especially for typing.
But tactile response isn't the same between different switch types. For example, the tactile feedback of the IBM Model M occurs close to the bottom of the keystroke while the tactile feedback of the Cherry MX Browns or Blues occurs at an earlier point in the downward part of the keystroke (so, it's higher up in the keystroke). Then there are also varying feels as well.
As near as I can tell, all rubber dome keyboards are trying to mimic tactile switches. But of course, there's nothing like a true tactile mechanical switch!
From what I've seen in this thread, it would be a DAMN good choice if you are already 100% sure you would like the Buckling Springs!
The main reason to get the Customizer is just to kinda pay homage to the IBM Model M.
I Don't Know if that will narrow the number of keyboards but my father gave that keyboard with my first PC,but he had it for about 15-17 year,also i manege to destroy the keyboard,and from what I understand the Model M is durable,i find it hard to believe that i destroy that keyboard,i was just 6 y/o.
and once again thank you.
