Has anyone used mechanical keyboards with the Cherry MX style keys?
They are going to be by far the most common. And of those cherry keys, 4 are common. Others like the clears and greens aren't as common.
Blue - Tactile, clicky/loud. Best for typing, but not if you type during the night a lot or in an office where you annoy others.
Browns - Tactile, non-clicky. Out of these 4, best mix of gaming and typing. Feels great, not too loud.
Reds - Linear/non-tactile, non-clicky, really sensitive. Best for gaming, but ahh, I wouldn't personally ever go near them unless I was a professional gamer or something.
Blacks - Same as reds, but require a lot more force. Meh, these have their fans, but not an awful lot.
I have browns, love them. Of course they are almost as loud as blues if you bottom out your keys, but otherwise, pretty quiet and o-rings can solve noise problems.
