At least these guys don't waste your time and tell it like it is:

So what do you guys think of this beast?  High tactile feel but no clicky?  Tell you what it sounds like my dream board!

Oh wow...I know it isn't small footprint like you mooks like to see...but that is one attractive keyboard.  I don't know if I would use the Jay Leno chin base on it.

If you want MX linear switches, then you have a lot of options.

Cherry black?

I have a cherry black keyboard, the SMK-88.  Call it "non-clicky" and my response is "just barely".

Clicky and loud are not the same thing.

I thought the 6G was pretty cool looking, but man, this 7G is a bee-yoo-tiful object, and I'm drooling over it. Don't think black Cherry MX switches (same as in the Deck gaming boards) would be my thing, though.

It seems they are telling half truths on both fronts, while the keys are not "clicky", they are definitely loud, and while Cherry black MX switches have better tactile feel than most keyboards out there, I don't think it is what anyone here would call "high" tactile feel.

Damn marketing terms, they never speak truths, they just shroud lies with candy coatings.

They should call the black Cherry MX switches half-tactile non-clicky but still loud but what's the point switches.

This keyboard is the polar opposite of the Model M, which is a non-mechanical clicky keyboard  :D
