Hey guise, I heard that the Blackwidow Ultimate blue switches are clickier than your average MX Blue switch. Is that true?

What do you guys think is the best keyboard out there for the money right now that uses these keys?
Browns are fine, I'm currently using Filco Majestouch 2 TKL with browns at home. I would highly recommend it. Either that or the Leopold FC700R. Everything else seems kind of meh. (except the novalty keyboards like the Poker/Race/Pure or HHKB)

The switches all from the same company, so the only difference in sound comes from the rest of the keyboard, like the key caps, the base plate. It's possible that the blackwidow is made out of plastic that creates a louder or higher pitch sound.

They are the opposite imo.

looked at the blackwidow before i got my filco, and they felt way less click/more smooth, well not as harsh of a click.
they have one at the best buy by my house and ive used it a coulpe times, then when i got my filco i was like MOAR CLICK? AWESOME!

Just bought a CM Storm Trigger from MicroCenter a few days ago. I originally went there to check out the Quickfire Pro but didn't realize MC had quite a selection of mechanical keyboards (compared to other B&M stores) and spent a half hour deciding on which one to get... despite my initial intent of just browsing.

The Trigger won out due to the Brown switches, full red LED backlighting and USB hub. The red backlighting is easier on the eyes compared to that of the blue LEDs on my BlackWidow Ultimate and it complements my CM Storm Spawn very nicely. The keys feel great for both typing and gaming but take some getting used to as I've used blues for a while. The only annoyance I have with the board is the lack of power adapter for the USB ports forcing me to find my own.

With two mechanical keyboards on hand I can finally throw out the heavily worn Sidewinder X6. The only rubber dome I would consider at this point would be the Sidewinder X4.


Adding to the previous discussion, the plastic key caps on the Blackwidow are thicker than average so the sound is a bit duller and feels a tiny bit softer. Still a good MX-Blue keyboard if you can find one under $130 (not really worth it at that price).

Lots of tasty goodies this past week.

-Uniform 55g Realforce
-KPT board with blue sliders and cryillic subtext (feels like a mix between monterey blues and xm greens)
-Gas mask keycaps (red and green)

Got it for work! Das Keyboard with MX Browns. I've only used it for a few minutes but I already love this thing. I feel my typing speed is significantly faster.

And it's SOO sexy!

I swear, I'll never go back to a regular keyboard again!
