Imho, silenced Topre/Nopre switches.

You get the tactility and feel, with non of the sound. :)

I agree with drakche. Silenced Topre can't be beat for overall sound and feel.

However, my next choice would be MX silent red. And then Gateron red after that.

Buckling spring!!!1!!11

However, great video :)

At home I tend to use an HHKB (non-silenced) resting on a folded sheet of drawer liner which is quiet enough for most purposes.
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But thatís incorrect. Itís in HHKBís slogan, but when Americaís cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada
