That was just my opinion. I could be wrong, but I've used all the switch types (from red to clears and a few alps in between). I am pretty sure that blues/browns/clears include the tactile bump to make sure you don't bottom out, and I assumed that you should type the same way with linear switches.

So...not a rule book that I know of...but just my opinion from my experience with mech boards (although I don't like reds much, so maybe I should try bottoming them out?) smile.gif

I don't think it matters either way. I just notice so many people around here stating their opinion as fact.

I was stating my opinion rather than looking up a 'fact' because I was pretty sure of the answer. I looked it up and the Mechanical Keyboard Guide on this site said what I said...
So Why do YOU want a Mechanical Keyboard?
For most people it's all about the feel. With the keyboard you're typing on right now you've got to press the key all the way down to the bottom to get it to register. This wastes a lot of energy and causes fatigue, as most of your effort is spent pushing against a solid piece of plastic. Mechanical keyswitches are designed so that they register before you bottom out, so you only need to apply as much force as is necessary to actuate it, not wasting any. And with as many different types of switches as there are you can pick and choose which one you're the most comfortable with, as each one has a different feel to it. And most people who try one can never go back to using rubber domes, as they realize just how "mushy" they really feel.

That is the intro to the guide. I felt like I have enough experience with Mech boards to have an opinion...but my opinion was supported elsewhere.

I was not questioning your experience with mechanical keyboards.Nor was I trying to state mine. I just feel that a person is free to type whichever way they want. And there is no right or wrong way.

there probably is a "proper" way of typing, just like there's "proper" ways to play the piano (the bends of the finger, the pressure, the wrist action, etc)
but yeah its more about personal preference. Although imo i'd say the not bottoming out is the proper way of typing as it uses the least amount of force and allows for quicker typing speeds

HArd to say I can semi not bottom out my browns but my speed isn't any quicker.

I have been told people can type without bottoming out on reds. I can't personally. It makes me type slower because I have to think about using less force. But I'm sure it could be done with some effort.

I'd say I don't completing bottom out on my browns because I make sure to use only slight pressure when typing, but I'm sure that there are moments I completely bottom out.

In gaming, there is nearly no way for me not to bottom out I'd say, unless I'm double taping a key. That's when I wish I had a linear switch.

ironically i don't bottom out when im typing on my typewriter (IBM/Lexmark), but i tend to bottom out when im typing with MX Blues.

on my Filco reds its 50/50, my left hand doesn't bottom out but my right hand does.

The typewriter has longer key travel - 6mm in the case of Selectric.
