Best cherry switch keyboard I have ever used,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)

This keyboard has the best feel for typing of any Cherry switch keyboard I have ever used (and I've used a lot of them). I chose the Cherry blue model instead of the Cherry brown one because I like the audible click; for me at least it helps accuracy and just makes typing more fun. The difference between a quality mechanical keyboard and the standard keyboards that most people use is night and day; they are well worth the cost.
The key (pun intended) to using these Cherry switches to their max potential is to not bottom out on the keystrokes. You only have to push the key in halfway for it to activate, so pushing it in all the way to bottom-out slows you down, causes more finger stress, and is a lot louder. If you've been typing on Cherry switches for a while ad still find that you are bottoming out on keystrokes, you really owe it to yourself to do the "o-ring mod" to your keys. The o-ring mod will make typing much quieter, reduce the travel distance after key actuation, and eliminate the hard thunk felt by your fingers. For a visual example of the mod, go to youtube and search for 'mechanical keyboard o-ring mod'.
The simplest (not cheapest) source of the o-rings is wasdkeyboards.com (on their menu go to 'products' - 'keyboard accessories' - then click the option for the o-rings). They sell o-rings with two different hardness and thickness values. My preference is the 50s, but some people like the 40s.
