I can't visualize this for the life of me at the moment) the actuation point.
For a gaming keyboard, are Reds or Blacks typically better? Heavier weight would eliminate accidental presses while lighter weight allows quicker responses, if only just. Thinking out my next purchase...s.
my issue is with greens/blues, for double tapping, you press down the first time which clicks, but there is some free-play space where you can trip the switch again without having to reset the click part.
so basically for how I type, 1 click can be either a single or doulbe/tripple tap depending on what I do. it bothered me so much that I switched to reds. ( mainly at work though, because if i press R once, it does one thing, and if i press it twice it does another, so if I try to press R twice and i only hear one click, its causes some confusion for me.
as far as gaming goes, its personal preference. I don't think the spring weight really makes any difference as far as key press speed goes. But for me, I prefer reds/blacks in FPS, but in games like starcraft where my hand goes all across they keyboard I like blues because I like to hear the click of me pressing the key where reds/blacks do not have any idication if a switch was pressed unless you bottom out.
