After lurking around here for a few weeks it looks like I will get to officially join this club once I find time to take some pictures and upload them.
My CM Storm Trigger w/Green switches that I ordered finally (I say finally because I am spoiled with Amazon Prime) arrived today and it is my first mechanical keyboard. I have to say that I am in love with it but it is a little more difficult to hit some keys with my pinky fingers than what I expected (shift and backspace specifically). After a bit of use I'm sure that my fingers will get stronger and it wont be much of a problem. Other then that I like the level of resistance that the keys offer and everything feels very responsive.
I don't have a lot to go on for a comparison of switches but I did order the sample pack of Red, Black, Blue, and Brown switches from WASD keyboards but typing on the switches is much different than pressing a single switch. Also, if anyone was wondering I did take apart the Black and Blue switches to test a "Ghetto Green" and the real greens on my keyboard have more resistance than the "Ghetto Green" I created.
I was a little skeptical about the rubberized feel of the wrist rest but now that I am using it I really like it. The back lit keys also look nice but the "s" key is significantly dimmer than the rest of the keys on the board. Does anyone have any idea what may be causing this and if I might be able to fix it myself? If not I'm sure I will just deal with it because it is only a single LED and I don't want to have to go through the whole process of sending it in to get it fixed. I also think that the "click" from the "s" key is quieter than the rest of the keyboard but maybe the LED being dimmer is just making me think everything about the letter "s" is defective.
Overall I am extremely happy but hopefully it won't lead me down the road of purchasing multiple keyboards for different switch types because these things are expensive. The other downside is that I don't know if where I work would allow me to bring in my own keyboard but if they I would then definitely buy another mechanical in a heartbeat.
Edit: Added pics. I don't know how clear the second picture displays that the "s" is dimmer to everyone else but it does to me.Edited by StLux - 1/23/13 at 6:42pm
