If you want analog input, sure.

I actually game with my keyboard, but it's not my primary use. So I'd would not loose something from classic Cherry MX switches in normal typing to get analog input. And yes, I love to type with silver Cherrys...

Edit: I ordered a Lioncast LK20 with MX Brown now and then I will get some custom keycaps by Max Keyboards.

  • Location: Germany
  • Any keyboards you currently have in mind: Ducky Blade Air (not released yet), Ducky One TKL PBT MX-Brown, Logitech G810 Romer-Tactile, Logitech G513 Romer Tactile
  • Price: up to 200 €
  • Backlighting (yes (colour?)/ no ): yes, RGB
  • Size (60%, TKL, full size etc): TKL or full, not too wide
  • Use (games/ programming/ typing etc): Games and normal typing (mostly forums and chats like Discord)
  • Media keys (yes/ no): Would love to have volume control
  • Layout (US/ ANSI, etc): QWERTZ (German)
  • Switch type (if not known complete the questions below): MX-Brown or similar

At the moment I have a Havit KB395L with MX Blue (which is the same as the Sharkoon Purewriter). However I mistype quite a lot with it and I think it's either the switch type or the close distance between the keys that are causing this. Or a combination of both. Before I had a Razer Ornata Chroma, which I loved altough it's not a mecha. But I really liked typing on it. The only annoying thing was that I had to reset the small metal bits that do the clicky part on this so called half mechanical keyboard. Before that I had a Cherry MX Board 3.0 with MX Black and a QPAD MK80 with MX Brown.
I liked the MX Brown, but I also liked the flat keys of the three keyboards I had thereafter.
So I don't really know what I want know. Best would be something that feels similar to the Ornata but fully mechanical and with flat keys. I also kinda want to go TKL, which makes it even harder. Ducky Blade Air seems to be perfect with flat MX Browns, but it isn't out yet as has no release date.
Does anyone have an idea what could be perfect for me? Maybe the Ducky One TKL PBT, even though it has high keys? Or a Logitech model with the tactile switches?

If anyone is looking for a dirt cheap mechanical keyboard for typing: I got the Dierya Keyboard with fake Brown switches. It is actually not a bad keyboard at all. It has no customizability or significant features, but it does the job and it is reasonably close to the MX browns. For the pricepoint it is well worth it.

Intel core i7 8700k @ 4.8ghz; G.Skill RipJawzV 32gb 3200mhz DDR4; Samsung Evo Pro M.2 256gb; Western Digital Blue 500gb; Samsung Evo 500gb; Thermaltake Floe AIO Riing 360
GPU: Sapphire Radeon Vega 64 x2; Thermaltake View 71; Keyboard: HyperX Alloy Elite RGB; Mouse: Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum; PSU: Corsair AX1200

Any keyboards you currently have in mind: Been looking at Ducky's but nothing in particular. Open to anything
Price: Less than $150
Backlighting: Doesn't matter. Backlighting is fine, no backlighting is fine
Size: Full size or TKL
Use: Gaming primarily
Media keys: No
Layout: US
Switch type: MX Blue

Looking for a minimalistic design (no extra rows with macro keys or anything of the sort) and also would like it to have really good grip on the back so it doesn't slide around at all on the desk.

Outemu switches feel pretty good but their failure rate is pretty high - or I guess more quality control? If they work out of the box they're great, but the keyboard I moved to my second rig had to be returned 3x before I got one with all fully functional keys.
