Lets see... Model M switches, Cherry ML, MX-Black, Brown, Red, Blue, various rubber dome
The Model M
I've tried because I... well... hasn't everybody?
-> Fresher ones are like super stiff and you can really feel that spring. Kinda neat really, nostalgic and what not, but I would never use one as my daily driver...Cherry ML, Cherry G84-5200... first mech keyboard
-> Loved these switches, but the keys were tiny as heck, they have the same kinda feeling as the browns, but lower profile and less travelCherry MX-Black, SS6Gv2
-> Its at work for a reason, I love pounding away at this thing, and since its for work I don't give a crap that the worst keycaps ever made shine after day 3 of usage. The feel is stiffer than the browns, and linear, but its all good. I like pounding away at code with the stiffer switches.Cherry MX-Brown, DK9008G2ProOCN
-> Love them. Dunno why, it just feels right I guess...Cherry MX-Red, somebody else's DK9008G2ProOCN
-> Feels kinda like the blacks, but I keep expecting more pressure so I typed like a Neanderthal the first time I used redsCherry MX-Blue, roommate's Razer
-> Never did like the excessive clicky sound they make, especially when depressed WAY harder then they have any business being pressed at, looking at YOU roommate.. :@Rubber dome, ALL THE KEYBOARDS.
-> Can. Never. Go. Back. Although I'm okay with certain scissor mechanisms over what is still essentially a rubber dome circuit matrix...Edited by truekishin - 9/28/12 at 12:43am
