I don't really judge something until I have had sever dozen hours using it. It can often take me a week or so to get truly acclimated.
This isn't my first red switch board, my comment about judging it was more to do with the overall product. For instance one of the first things I'm noticing is that there's something wrong with the balance of my particular unit, either it is warped or the rubber feet aren't the same size because the board rocks the tiniest bit and I need to wedge a piece of paper underneath one of the feet to stabilize it.
As far as switch preference, well its all down to personal opinion. We have so many different switch types because there is no one perfect be-all-end-all switch. I'm an avid gamer and just so happen to greatly prefer linear switches.
I still need more time gaming on reds (never got around to making my G80-3494 my primary board because I've been waiting on the geekhack cap cap group buy to happen
) but the time I have used reds I can tell you I do prefer them for typing over blacks. I just don't know if they're going to have enough resistance to make me as happy while gaming as blacks are just about perfect for hovering around the actuation point for ultra fast key strokes without bottoming out.
