It won't ping. We eliminated the ping.
Awwwww … Not even a teensy little bit of ping? :°(
I am neutral on tactile feel as I am new to mechanical keyboards and don't know what to make of the various switches. What do you mean by light? How much force to bottom out compared to the MX brown switches?
MX brown is … strange. It's a weird wannabe-linear affair. It's definitely not
linear, but it's a fence-sitter between linear and tactile.
The only keyboard I've used that gets the the tactility balance right is Topre variable: it's the perfect medium weight, smooth travel, smooth tactile point, and soft landing for anyone who bottoms out the switches. The down sides include very few keycap options, ridiculous price tag, and dominess – I've gone back to MX browns out of preference for a "clear" feel instead of the inevitable mushiness of even the world's best domes. However, my fingers and hands in general are lately feeling really hammered and jarred-to-death from Cherry, so maybe I need to revert to Topre for a while. I'm concerned that Cherry MX is what's giving me pain in my hands, as it co-incided with switching to mechanical keyboards two years ago. I'm not sure I'm suited to anything but domes :/
Cherry MX blue is slightly (but not usefully) stiffer than brown, and more tactile, but it's noisy, and that's a deal breaker for many, and the click sound is a bit pathetic. MX clears, apparently now out of production, seem to be the same as complicated black ALPS (Dell AT10* series), in that they're no more tactile, just stiffer, but black ALPS don't have that clean feeling of Cherry MX and clicky ALPS; instead, they feel mushy like domes, and they're barely any more tactile than MX brown. I don't think clears are that bad, but I haven't tried them yet.
My hope is that Matias tactile ALPS have the sharp, clear feeling of clicky ALPS, something that no-one has managed to achieve thus far in a tactile, non-clicky switch. Ideally I'd suggest 55 g for that force curve, but it's 60 g so I'll have to wait to see whether the force is excessive.
Ultimately I'm hoping for a switch with the smooth tactile curve of domes/buckling spring without the mush of domes or the excessive stiffness of BS, but that could be many years away. ALPS is the most brutal switch on the planet, after all
