another thing, is that i can feel the friction of the switch as it slides down the shaft, which i didn't get with my last keyboard. i think that friction is also the main cause of the sound from the keyboard, other than bottoming and topping out. not sure if i like that or not, but again, it doesn't really bother me.

one thing i really like, is the linear-ness of it (compared to rubber domes). rather than just collapse and bottom out straight (rubber domes), they slide down as soon as i put enough pressure on them. it's nice and smooth until i hit the tactile part.

i don't feel like i had much difficulty adapting to mechanical switches. i've heard people say it can take some getting used to, but i feel like i've been comfortable using it straight out of the box.


i'm sure my opinion will change over the coming days as i get used to the new board.

Most likely WASD Keyboards, but there's many other places too smile.gif

WASD does not sell keycaps with translucent lettering, those keycaps come with the Shine.

You sound like you would like reds if you like the linear feel before the bump.
