The TK has some pretty washy reviews, it not anywhere near the quality of the QF rapid or XT, and there are a few complaints about how the right num pad works.

Not really. I like the simplicity and I feel like engraving would ruin the simplicity. If I were to add some touch like that, I'd probably try to emboss the suede on the inside of the case.

He does have a point, though. Browns feel pretty squishy, although MX grey is the squishiest I have tried.

It's still very much a subjective comment. Browns feel scratchy to me, not squishy. And dark greys don't feel squishy to me either. They're just heavy linear switches. Or were you talking about tactile greys?

Honestly, I don't think any standard cherry switch feels anything like a rubber dome. Some may get squishy feeling if they're PCB mounted, but that's not the switch causing the feeling.

Hey, I am looking for a keyboard someone posted (I think it was on Overclock, I have been racking my brain and browser history looking for it). It was a white keyboard with blue (baby blue keycaps). The keycaps were a bit lower profile with the use saying they were "circular". I think it was either here or Reddit /r mechanicalkeyboards subreddit. Anyone happen to see this keyboard?

I was talking about tactile greys. The bump feels like nothing compared to the spring force.

I guess the PCB mount on my MX brown board probably doesn't help it feel more tactile.

MX Greys are tactile, MX Dark Greys are linear

Clicky
Light - Blue
Heavy - Green

Tactile
Light - Brown
Heavy - Grey

Linear
Light - Red
Heavy - Dark Grey.

I know they are, but some people don't know that there are two different MX grey switches. So when people talk about MX greys, they may be talking about greys or dark greys. That's why I made the distinction between dark greys and tactile greys.

Edit: I should rephrase that to I have learned that not everyone is referring to the same switch when they talk about MX Greys, so I try to be more specific and talk about tactile greys and linear greys.

I just had a brain fart, for some reason reading your post I thought you were saying the wrong grey switch was linear. tongue.gif

My apologies!
