It's all subjective, but brown switches are typically marketed towards a good mix between gaming and productivity (office work/ browsing).

Coming from a MX brown keyboard I can say that I liked it for gaming, but found typing on it for more than a few pages in a word processor app was not as pleasant as I'd hoped but since I do most of my type-heavy tasks on my laptop, it is a non-issue.

Again, everyone is different and prefer different keystroke pressures and actions. If you live in the US and there is a micro-center near you, you can test out a bunch of MX key switches at the store.

Also, if you really want to you can get a keyswitch test like this which has 9 different MX switches that you can mess around with to get the feel for each type of switch action and pressure.

First thing we need to know is how much you are willing to pay.

That being said, recommended switches are MX Brown or Romer G tactile.

did you read the posts from the people that replied already?

there are no good and bad switches except for some oddball ones like the Mitsumi Miniature or Cherry MYs which you're not going to find in a modern keyboard unless you're going out of your way to get them. it's personal preference. find out what switch you like and buy a keyboard with those switches.

Also, if you really want to you can get a keyswitch test like this which has 9 different MX switches that you can mess around with to get the feel for each type of switch action and pressure.

I'd take a look at analog keyboards like the Wooting Two.

I've used a couple Corsair keyboards, and was not impressed. Build quality and particularly the lack of switch consistency was really bad.

Everything Corsair peddles screams overpriced mediocrity and style over substance IMHO. Maybe one of their keyboards is good and I'm unaware of it, but in general I can't think of a Cherry keyboard brand I'd want to own less. :eek:
