I personally donâ€™t really care for any of the mx switches. Basically it comes down to personal preference. i just wanted to caution the op especially since they want to spend ~$50. it is kind of ridiculous to guarantee they will like something as subjective as mech key switch type especially when it would cost more than twice their budget.
he could always sell it for a min loss
and imo, browns are a safe way to start if you have a need for typing and gaming. Just gaming i would say blacks, just typing i would say blues. Not everyone games on the polls that are taken and those people usually prefer blues, especially since Topre switches are so expensive most people just buy the blues and never try out the Topres. Although almost everyone i know who tried the Topres for a week to let themselves get used to them loves them more or equally well compared to their next favorite switch.
Although there is a LARGE amount of personal preference, these are the majority guidelines depending on what you will be using the keyboard for. That is why i think that browns are a good place to start, they are a good mix between gaming and typing.
PS: rubber domes are tactile, you press them down and there is a small release of pressure just before you bottom out, then the pressure is back when you bottom out of course and the key registers. I am typing on them right now and it is pretty obvious, but sloppy and squishy. No good compared to a mech keyboard, not even close.
