It was easy because of all the reading I did about each switch type. So then when I watched the videos, I could kinda see the differences. Plus, actually being able to hear the keyboards in action was a tremendous help.

Some videos I saw even went into very fine detail showing a single switch being pressed slowly both with and without the key cap.

It certainly left me with a much better idea of what I would like the most as opposed to just relying on what I read.

So just watch as many videos as you can, and you should begin to understand where I'm coming from.

I can second this. I watched so many Cherry MX Blue keyboard videos before I even got my first mechanical keyboard. I was pretty damn close to what I expected it to feel like and how it felt. The only feature I didn't catch from watching videos was the jolt you get from pressing the key and having it bottom out.

What jolt? Are you referring to the tactile feedback and how once you go past it, it kinda gives way?

The sudden stop from bottoming out compared to the softness of a rubber dome.

Also, damn TwoCables. You'd have to post 36 times, every single day, for 2 years to reach your post count.

Well done

Oh. I guess I nearly forgot how solid it is because I don't bottom out anymore. But yeah, I guess it's more solid feeling than rubber domes, but I personally wouldn't call it a "jolt".

Edit: Meh, I don't watch my post count or anything.

I find it hard to believe how people don't bottom out. I can get a few keys in without bottoming out, but it's extremely difficult for me.

Probably because I don't use home-row, home-row makes it easier to lightly press the keys in my opinion. I press my keys fairly hard.

I type with 3 fingers on my left hand, and my index finger on my right. (Professional skills.) I can only get like 50wpm max when I use home-row, it's bad.

The easiest way to avoid bottoming out is to keep your keyboard at roughly elbow/belly button height, and type with your wrists up in the air. It's also easiest to just remember that it's "Touch" typing, not "hit" typing.

In other words, all keyboards like these need are light touches as opposed to the way rubber domes almost have to be hit. I mean, I remember when I switched from rubber dome to my first (and only) mechanical keyboard, I was bottoming out for every keystroke. My typing was very loud. I was basically hitting every key as opposed to just pressing them.

But I worked at it and today the only time I bottom out is when I'm typing angrily or something - similarly to how yelling feels better than talking softly when you're angry.

Thanks for using my thread to answer your question lol...

I ordered Filco Tenkeyless Cherry Blue from Army Group, $160 with the given exchange rate. I was a little worried because I used a translator for one of the e-mails saying it was canceled, but navigating again through their site, I see it is being ready for delivery lol. So hope it comes sometime within two weeks It will be my daily at home and the 104 I got here will be going to work.

imo that's your issue, i've largely suspected that "WASD"er's are used to bottoming out and haven't learned touch typing. So improper or no technique along with constantly have a "home cluster" as WASD all the time leads many WASD'er's (we can basically call you guys gamers) to say "what? home row is f and j? wth... and i just thought those little nubs were keyboard defects".
I read about and even seen videos of pseudo touch typing... but not really while using WASD, it's weird to say the least. (this is coming from a touch typer who uses alternate shifts for the opposite hand)
