If you are not WOWZOMG impressed, browns may not be your holy grail. I tried all the MX switches and topre via HHKB, before eventually, and close to a thousand dollars later deciding a Realforce 86U would be best for me. I used to switch keyboards depending on what I was doing at the time on my pc, but I got sick of haivng multipule keyboards on my desk and literally switching back and forth depending on what game/applications I was using at the time. Every keyboard has its pros/cons, but the 86U has earned the spot as daily driver at home... For now...
yep, it really works either way. What it comes down to is that you will most likely become overcome with curiosity and eventually, you will try more switches. It is inevitable, and you are foolish to resist.
Whether you buy them and sell them or not is up to you, but at some point you will want to try to find the best switch for you, i know i want to, i want the best typing experience for myself that i can find since i spend lots of time at my computer.
Also, it is nice to see one of the biggest haters of mech keyboards come over to the light, no mater what you buy, i guarantee you will like it so long as it is a good quality board, at least like it more than rubber domes. Later when you have tried more switches (and you will, trust me) you might find that you like something else more and can sell your old board for little loss, or you may keep 2 boards around because you like the different switches for different things, like blues for typing and browns or blacks for gaming. I, myself am settling with blues and browns since i do not think i will like linear switches at all, and someday i will try out a Realforce if someone lets me borrow theirs for a it or if i can save enough money for one. Wont be anytime soon though i am sure
