[Official] Mechanical Keyboard Club - Because saving money is boring. - Page 991

post #9901 of 36812

I just can't do light switches. 

 

I work with my hands too much; so my fingers are naturally used to apply lots of pressure to the task at hand. So touch typing and not bottoming out is much easier on 55cN Topre, MX-Clears, MX-Greens, & MX-Blacks.

EDIT: Just realized this is the Club thread instead of the Guide thread. derpsorry

Looking to get rid of my old PS/2 Dell keyboard I've used for about 10 years now, haha. I've never used a mechanical keyboard before and I've literally only ever used this keyboard or my laptop (which I hate). I've done my research, and even though I do play games, I don't play THAT much anymore (haven't even turned a game on in the past week), I really do not need a switch thats meant for gaming. I'm about 75% typing, 25% gaming.

Since I've only ever used this keyboard, I am a very "hard" typer. What I'm saying is I put a lot of power into typing, and I have shake all my fingers for a second whenever I typed something. I can type extremely fast as well, but typing hard and fast is not good for the hands. I had to shake them just before this sentence actually. So I need a switch thats mainly for typing and also will stand a bit of pressure in the beginning until I learn to type not so hard. I was thinking Browns since they are a middle ground. I've wanted a mechanical keyboard for awhile but when I saw the CMStore has a $40 off code it really sparked my interest in one, specifically that keyboard since I can get one for about $50 w/ shipping. Any help for what switch I should go for?

I'd suggest Browns, however if you are a very heavy typist then you could probably even get away with Blacks.

As for which CM board, it depends whether or not you want TKL.

I can live without the numpad. I use the one on my keyboard at times, but I can definitely live without it. And it should save money as well!

Not as much as you'd think.

In that case there's the Quickfire Rapid or the Quickfire TK, I'm sure some other people who have more experience with either of them (of which there are many) can advise you better as to which to go for. thumb.gif

Depends what country you are in, computer shops might have a Blackwidow or one of the CM boards in to try.

Failing that if you go to here you can buy one each of the individual switches and a keycap and that will give you an idea of the differences between the switches.

Store that display them like Fry's Electronics, Microcenter.

K90, CM Storm, & SteelSeries are reds. Razer BlackWidows are Blues. A few of the keyboards in retail stores.

Logitech G710+ at Best Buy I hear which are Browns with O-rings. Which by the way is a great keyboard I just got it today. I've been typing only for a little while they feel great. It's my first mechanical keyboard. It' sturdy and I cannot bend or flex the corners even with a lot of pressure. The lighting & volume roller work perfectly.

I'm glad I did go with the Browns, my wife said if it was any louder either the keyboard would have to go or move the computer in another room. If not I'd have to go. tongue.gif
