With the difficulty in finding the greens and clears and at a resonable price at the time of my purchase, i just went with browns over reds. I know browns are quite unpopular with enthusiasts but i like them. Quiet but i may have liked a bit more tactility. On hindsight, if i knew i was going to tokyo before i wanted to buy my filco, i might have just purchased it from japan. SGD60 less that what i can find it locally for. the realforce was SGD180 and the topres were half the local prices.

I have owned many different keyboards and I am currently using a Keycool Hero 104 with RGB Blue Kailh. They feel no different to me.

No such thing as Kailh Green, unless you mean Razer Green.

I'd look at getting a different RGB board like the Keycool Hero.

Greens are a heavier Blue, but Kailh doesn't produce a copy of Cherry MX Green.

wait i'm confused, since when did razer start making their own switches?
*sarcasm*

The reason why most people knock kahil switches is because they are used on cheaper boards, which quite frankly suck.

Put them in a custom and you'd love them just as much as a cherry switch.

( ironically, gateron switches, also a chinese cherry knock off, are loved by the KB community )

From my sampler, greens and clears are heavier versions of blues and clears... But clears have more tactile feedback than browns. You add the same spring back to a light switch and it'll get stuck without lubing. Clears seem to have a pretty strong pushback after you've actuated and you're releasing the key. Greens have a slightly lower pitched sound than blues.

When they're not corroded though! Little scared about that one scare story... :(

Yep, hated Kailhs in those Thermaltake Poseidons I had, but love them in a higher quality board.

So what I'm getting from the last few posts is the kailh switches are on par with the cherry and cheaper to boot. especially when put on good quality board. I've read good things about the keycool as well

@ Blaise170: Yes, Razer Greens. I also have a Thermaltake Poseidon Z with Kailh Blues, I prefer Razer Greens though.
