Cherry MX Brown Keyboard for my iMac - Page 2

post #11 of 13
Black switches don't make the click, and don't have a tactile bump. They are called linear switches. Some people say they are bad for typing and good for gaming. I think they are great for typing, but I prefer browns right now for gaming.

Personally i find the black keyboards inferior to any 5$ rubber dome keyboard for general use, but they are surely good for gaming, at least for the games that requires repeatedly key presses.

BTW all is matter of personal preferences, here.

In my opinion, for anyone who has not tried any of the switches, then brown is always a safe bet.

Me personally have always like the Blues even before I got the keyboard simply because I like the clickity clackin.
