If any of you are in the market for a serious mechanical keyboard -- The Japanese company Filco arguably makes the best mechanical keyboards in the world. Their main competition is a Taiwanese company called "Ducky", but the Japs always make better shit imo. If you are curious how some of the different color switches on mechanical keyboards work here is a quick run down.

"Blues- have quite a light feel to them, takes 50g of force to actuate, gives a nice and crisp *click* once you past the actuation point, and also has a nice tactile bump along with it. Some people complain about blues since you cant "float" on them, meaning you can't just move your finger slightly up and down near the actuation point to spam the button. The release point however isn't too far above the actuation point, so it shouldn't be a problem.

Browns- Everything that a blue has except for a slightly lighter actuation force of 45g and is missing that nice and crisp *click* sound. Most people will point you toward these, although i would point you to the Blues instead. With the browns, you are able to float on it, although it shouldn't make too much of a difference.

Blacks- Linear force switches mean that they don't have a bump or any tactile response, and require more force to actuate them (70g to actuate). Most people say that these are hard to get used to if you don't have already forceful fingers and might cause fatigue, although after a few days those users who don't RMA them say that these are one of the best switches.

Red- Like browns, but without the bump. If you've tried and used a MX Brown keyboard like I have, you probably wanted to not have the bump in there at all since it makes the key feel a bit weird and i guess "sandy" in a way, because you would expect something to have such a low actuation force to be ultra smooth. Reds take away the bump and instead become something like Blacks but with 45G needed to actuate the key, and are usually considered as one of the rarest Cherry switches next to clears ( these are sooo hard to find nowdays)."

Well then think how good you would be with a decent keyboard.
