I liked the clicking of the blues actually I just don't think my son would be as appreciative when it's nap time haha!
I tried them out at a store, and they felt more like a crunch than a click, to me. I'm also a fairly heavy handed typist, so the switches were way too light for me.

IMO there isn't much of a bump with Brown's. When typing slow you notice it but not that much when regular typing

This is actually how I felt about blues. Their click is surprisingly soft, and it doesn't really feel like anything, unless I type softly. On the other end of the spectrum, I've heard some people saying that they thought MX green switches were painful to type on. I don't really think you can get a good idea of how much you will enjoy a keyboard from reading opinions on the internet.

Thanks for all the replies guys! I may just go with the blues because I was a fan. I was just a little leery using it for gaming since some people aren't a fan of blues for gaming! I think I'd probably be a fan of clears; I'd probably like browns to if they have a big enough "bump". But since I can't find anywhere to try I may just do blues... Who knows lol. Thanks again for the help all!

I've never had a problem using blues for gaming, but when you have to tap keys rapidly, it can be really annoying at first. It's nice to be able to hold the keys just slightly above the actuation point so easily, though.

Yah I don't like them personally for gaming. Especially the stabilised keys.

I really like my blues for gaming. The crisp feel of the keys is great for me in SC2.

On another note, changed my QFR a bit: Stripped the rubber coating off and painted in Chrome (looks like polished aluminum), added some white dysub, cherry profile pbt caps and put my matching GH cap on. Cable is done in mdpc-x aquamarine.

Hey guys, just picked up my first Mech ( CM quickfire rapid w/ blues )
Custom keycaps and mods on the way.


Question about 10-keyless mech keyboards, to me, they all look very very similar, is this just a case of one main manufactuer and the brands just slap their logo's on them and put them in a box? or is there a difference in quality between some of the higher priced brands vs the lower priced ones?

Well, Filco, Das and CM all have tenkeyless boards that look the same because they all use Costar as their OEM. Duckie tenkeyless boards also look extremely similar to these, but I'm not sure what their OEM is.
