Hi marshskitow. Welcome to Geekhack.

There are sometimes keyboard meetups, which are posted here: Meetups

What sort of switches have you tried? Which do you like?

That's good to hear. There hasn't been one in Wisconsin since I joined this forum.

KPrepublic has a 130 switch tester at a reasonable price. Not sure what shipping would look like to Europe.

It has most of the commercial switches, though many are basically duplicates because there are through hole LED and SMD RGB variants, etc. It also doesn't really have any of the fancy boutique switches, unless you count Everglides, which actually all felt pretty nice to me. I particularly like Kailh's box clickies myself.

I will probably buy a tester then i will be able to determine. But the thing is there is many kind going out all the time so, i can't try them all anyway.
I just wanna make sure my girlfriend can sleep when i'm typing thats all ahah   :D
