I've found that, for me anyway, i can do anything on any switch. I gamed in tactile, and typed with blacks.
There's a load more information here. It's difficult to go wrong with any switch though, but i started with blues and loved them. Now i'm onto blacks and i love those too.

Thanks for the quick response,
Think it will have to be red or blacks then I think , Im going to have a read through that guide you showed me anyways.

Thanks thumb.gif

Thanks

Well reds are out since they are not included in the prizes tongue.gif at least that's what Chip said.

I won one too btw redface.gif I went with brown since they seem to be the most popular "in the middle" switch and I already have a Filco with blues.

Ahh soo you did, have you got yours yet? And Im waiting to hear back from Chipp as my discount code isn't working! and in the PM he sent me he said "Any DK1008 keyboard which is in stock will allow you to purchase it with the coupon code "**********" - this will give you a discount equal to the cost of the keyboard and free shipping."

I just fingured any of the DK1008's would be included, Think Im going to go for the blacks anyhow. But you saying Browns are like in the middle has stumped me again haha

I think my keyboard shuffle is finally done. Selling my new Leo with clears. Couldn't get into the clears. Brown choc mini should be here today. And I just ordered a black leopold with red switches (on sale for $89). And some white keycaps from Qtan. I think this will be my daily driver. I'll post pics when they are all here.

Tried reds at frys yesterday and liked them. Hopefully I still feel that way when it shows up.

You're never really done with the shuffle, you just take breaks.

Na, haven't received mine yet, only got the code last night and it wasn't working for a few hours, it eventually worked late last night and it's still pending :l When I was having issues with the code though Chip mentioned that the red switch wasn't an option :(

Ahh yeah same here keep trying the code every now and then but still no luck and just checked there I think its because its $30 more for reds! Im still stuck between Blacks and Browns though! They both seem to be pretty good for my needs! just no way of testing either of them out

Changed my mind at the last moment - won one of the OCN "DK 1008", but found out I got the option of what switch I would prefer. So instead of browns, I went for blues. Hopefully I don't regret it. I am also eventually going to get blank caps for most of the keys so I can get better at typing. I suck right now at only 50-60 words per minute...I know, I know. Reason I went for the blue is because I have read that they are the preferred switch for typing. Though I do game, I am not competitive, so I don't feel I would necessarily notice an disadvantages with the blues. And I've read others have no problem gaming on the blues, so I figured they might be OK. Also, from some videos I have seen, they really aren't THAT much louder than, say, the MX browns.

I'm with ya Aaron. I chose MX Blues as my choice for the DK 1008 I won in the giveaway, and I am hoping I do not regret it.
I really wanted the satisfying sound the Blues give and I am thinking I can adapt to gaming on a board with blue switches.
Can't wait to receive mine, so I may then replace my Arctosa that I have been using for 2.5 years.

MX Blues feel pretty nice to me. Out of the main MX switches Clears/Blacks are tied for #1 (I can't decide) and MX Blues are second.
