lol wow sorry guys
I started this thread last night and I fell asleep so I couldn't respond to your posts :S
I think you want normal Cherry Clears. They're higher activation force tactile, non-clicky switches with a slightly more pronounced tactile bump than Browns. Ergo Clears are Clear stems matched with the low-force springs from Blues / Browns, they probably aren't what you're looking for.
As an aside, I played SC2 on a Cherry G80-8000 with Clear switches for a long time and they felt great. On the other hand, my friend who's a Master top 10 only plays on Browns.
hmm so how do ergo clears and clears feel compared to eachother?? im not quite sure what different stems/springs feel like...
I'm currently rank 3 masters with 1700 points ... and I got there using the scissor switch keyboard on my laptop lol... I got tired of the laptop keyboard not responding quick enough and that's why I was looking for a mechanical keyboard...
Brown does make clicking / spamming effortless but it just doesn't feel satisfying for me...
Does it need to be non clicky?
it doesn't matter
Well, OP seems to have a problem with low activation force, not low tactility. If I could, I would go for high activation force + high tactility, ie a Cherry Green board.
hmm... i'm not quite sure what the difference is between the activation force and tactility...
I just want the keys to respond to my touch when I press on them unlike brown..
I really like the feel when I bottom out the browns but I usually have really light touch and when I press the buttons lightly, I just don't feel any response... and that really bugs me.. I mean I like it because the keys are recognized without jamming on the key but it also feels unsatisfying
for gaming brown is the way to go, or blues if u want click.. for cherry switches. Topre isn't bad either, for starcraft buckling is tooooo heavy. can't go quick on it. its doable but its a drag. There is no reason you would want it heavier in my opinion if you want fast apm.
Well, the keys are recognized properly without effort but I don't feel the response from the keyboard when I'm moving across the keyboard and rapidly pressing different keys very fast... and that throws me off and I don't really have fun typing on it.. lol
SO... so far the candidates are..
-Cherry Blue (I've used cherry blue before but I want to try it again to compare with brown)
-Cherry Ergo Clear?
...the problem is I'm currently a student and I really don't have the money to actually buy the keyboards to try all the different switches out...
What will be the best way to try out all these switches?
and what keyboards have switches such as clear , ergo clear, white alps? that I can find in US?
