The proper technique to using an MX blue keyboard involves not bottoming out the keys. If you are constantly bottoming out the keys, you'd be better off putting O-rings on the keyboard or with an MX red board.

I was never the best at typing on an MX blue keyboard; I always felt like the keys has almost no lead up to the bump, unlike buckling spring switches.

Shipping these keyboards is horrific when you live in Canada.

Freebie. Salvaged from a trash can outside of a chemical lab at my school. There were two, but I couldn't fit them both in my backpack, and was afraid of the cameras seeing me walk out with computer stuff. I went back the next day and it was gone ;_;

i couldn't stand the mx red keyboard and reguardless of whatefer technique im suppose to be using the mx blue feels the best(i used my friends MX Reds keyboard at a lan party).My MX blue keyboard, it feels just like my scissorswtich which is what I wanted the most. my problem with typing is the sheer amount of force i put into the movements into my hands. I loke the click and tactile response because of the way it triggers automatic movement response(same reason fighting sticks for pro video game fighters have click tactile response).
the amount of pressure i put on keys is excessive compared to most people, and no matter what technique, the blues feel the best to my interpretation.

this might weird people out but look at the backs of my hands and see how massively over developed they are. I don't think i could stop bottoming out keys if i tried. You cant see it in the photos because the blood is drained because of the angle in holding my hands but the veins are absolutely massive. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I don't know if I fully understand the hype around "which model m to get" or whatever. It seems like they're all fairly solid keyboards. Try the wiki for more info on the particular models, and formulate your opinion thusly.

The only things I'd pay attention to are connectors, switch type, and keycaps. Mine uses the large DIN-5, and many use either USB or PS/2, but some use RJ-45 which might be difficult to use on modern computers.
Some were made with domes, and some didn't have removable keycaps. Some came with a trackball, some have LEDs, and some have weird layouts.

Lots of little things, but again I've never heard of a poorly made Model M.

Doesn't weird me out. They look like generic, albeit long and kind of boney, hands.

The actuators in your hands don't jut out and aren't ultra obvious and defined and over developed like mine are.(that's what i was trying to show with those pictures) also the veins in my hands are absolutely massive. You can see how overdeveloped my hands are really well in my Super M17X modding video.

That's part of the affect of trying top cope with dyspraxia, and ofc gaming on a PC since i was a small child.

Oh, I'm not trying to detract from the seriousness of your condition at all, and I agree that the tendons and such do not stick out as prominently as yours. However, the difference between your hands and mine is that yours are relatively thin, whereas mine are comparitively thick. Basically, I have a lot more meat on my hands than you. I would hazard a guess that both of our hands are over developed, but in different areas. To break it down in laymans terms, you have hands similar to those of a piano player, whereas I have hands similar to that of a construction worker.

Yeah apparantly IBM ran a manufacturing plant in Guadalajara before relocating the plants to America and Scotland if im not mistaken
