Just to clarify to others...the clicky noise that he is talking about, isn't a clicky switch...its him bottoming out the keys on the metal plate below (which can be quite loud if you hammer on the keys).

Actually, given the strength of the spring in the MX Clears, even if you don't bottom them out the keycaps tend to rattle a bit on the rebounce. It's kind of a clicky noise I guess.

I understand the whole Mechanical Keyboard thing, but from a "durability" standpoint?! Come on, what do you all do to your keyboards that you need to spend $170 on one so it will last? I've had the same Logitech $50 keyboard for the last 5 years, and not a problem. lol

Clicky is defined strictly in terms of the mechanism being designed to make noise in and around the point of actuation. Any bottoming out clack or rattle doesn't really count. That said, there are many 'non-clicky' keyboards that are quite loud when typed on, even when not bottoming out.

Im not flaming but please explain to me the point of having one of these????
Ive got a $25 dell keyboard now for 3 years and everything is fine.
Are these hand made from some material made in Chernobyl that glows blue? Does it allow you to push buttons faster?
Does it make a really cool clicking noise when pushing the buttons?

Don't get me wrong, if I want to, Ill spend the cash, but sometimes I need a good reason for it.

Thanks for the feedback.

Edit: Didn't read the comment on top of mine before posting....Seems we have the same feeling for these. Still, give me a reason.

I cant remember which post i read on here, but a lot of people are getting Mech keyboards because
-some believe that it is a better response time than the alternative
-non-mech keyboards are not US products and may be made by shady means.

Dammit i wish i had the link for that post...i know i saw it somewhere....

The way I look at it is as follows:

Why buy fine china when plastic utensils do their job just fine?
Why buy a nice car when even an old bomb will get you to and from where you need to go?
Why buy anything nice where there is probably a cheaper product to serve the exact same task?

It may not be seen as a big deal to someone else, but to those who care about something like a keyboard, it can make all the difference in the world. This is my view of it, anyways. Mechs are manufactured and marketed as "luxury", like anything expensive. And because it makes our e-peen that much bigger.

I should say that I'm by NO means a keyboard enthusiast, but this is my view nonetheless.

This is the only reason we buy anything right. Personally I would not pay that much cash for a KB but I paid some cash for my MIONIX Naos 5000 which could be wrong for some people as well.

If you find yourself driving a car for many hours each day and are looking to buy a new one, would you buy the cheapest Chinese car you could find?
