no difference in GAMING, only TYPING

yes a mechanical may "FEEL" different or fantastic, but it won't make your schlong bigger
and it certainly doesn't make you god of gaming

if you want to buy into the hype than by all means spend your money how you wish
but if your trying to find the right spot to improve on your games , a better mouse or better comp/ internet connection would be better,

keyboard is one of the last things i would ever upgrade if trying to improve gaming experience
The keyboard will improve your gaming experience, as it is much nicer to play with. It just won't magically make you better, and keyboard performance is not a critical component in most games.

(I.E. finger sliding across keys to get multiple key presses and faster and easier button press downs on keys.)
I'm actually curious what kind of mechanical keyboards you've tried, since I found it to be exactly the opposite. I'm using a keyboard with Cherry MX browns, and I find the keys quite a bit easier to press than any of the rubber dome keyboards I've used before, which makes things like sliding into another key or lots of quick repeated keystrokes easier.

I went from a Idezon Merc Z with the gaming pad on the side to a Das Keyboard Model S with cherry browns

it took me about a day to get used to the layout of the Das seeing as when I play Black Ops and BC2 and really any other game I used the game pad.

I will never go back to the merc z

mech keyboards are the way to go IMO

Mechanical keyboards are personal preference.

For typists, a mechanical keyboard is a must. Depends on your budget you may get a brandnew modern keyboards or a old second hand 198x-199x one.

For normal gaming, a Logitech (15US$, with hotkeys) or normal membrane (5US$) is usually sufficient.

For hardcore gaming, Razer or Steelseries with MX black switches would be good.

For curiousity or collectors, any keyboards would be worth a look anyway.
