Red or black for gaming? Probably will type once in a while for school work.

All depends on how hard you press the keys, both are linear but Reds are much lighter than Blacks.

I find the red way too light for my taste, so I think blacks are a lot better option. Browns are pretty good too IMO.

For predominantly gaming though you won't see any benefit of Browns over linear switches as you will be bottoming out the keys anyway.

Will go for blacks then
Ill get this one: Ozone strike gaming keyboard.
It will be my first mech keyboard ever. Its like 110$ here in portugal, so its cheap for what it offers

Not true. You can use the tactile bump to actuate rather than having to thunk the key all the way down. I think browns have just enough feedback for me to be able to do this. However, it is easier with blues.

I don't know why people say this so much, I certainly don't bottom out the keys in most games I play, and the tactility still feels nice (imo), even if you are bottoming out every key stroke.

The tactility is also nice because it allows you to hover over the actuation point and know exactly where it is. It probably doesn't do anything beneficial to my gameplay, but it feels nice (which is half the point of mechanicals imo tongue.gif)

Well I'd say the large majority of people would just press the key all the way down, but if you two don't then that's cool.

Here's an example of what we can get when we start collecting more data (I used sample data in this example):
Looks good, does the graph auto-update when new submissions are made, or do you have to manually adjust it? Either way, thread lookin' balllin' tongue.gif

Not sure, have to wait for people to start submitting data. tongue.gif
