Getting a keyboard next (Either Corsair Strafe or CM Storm QuickFire series). Was wondering what you guys prefer and which keyboard you guys have.

I have blue, black, red, browns and clears. I primarily use blacks for typing, gaming and osu training and switch to reds when I play for FC. I recommend buying a blue or black switch keyboard then modify 2 switches to browns if you went with blues, or reds if you went with black.

Click gets in the way, and higher reset point due to switch design. Means your return travel is longer than your press travel, in comparison to Browns



Also surprised that no one here quoted deskthority or geekhack for keyboard recommendations.

Blue switches are designed for precision, not speed. This is why it's usually designed for typing, but can be extra useful for games that require lots of buttons to click (MOBAs, MMOs, Starcraft) to reduce chance of misclicking, rather than games that require lots of clicking on a few buttons (like osu!) where red switches excel.

Blue switches (and by extension, Green switches) are designed for typing, not gaming. The slider design will make it more difficult to be consistent in any game that requires rapid multiple hits (or even reliable double-taps).

Yeah, they don't matter for this thread because it's specifically about cherry and not switches in general.
