Got a new keyboard today after using a Logitech mechanical with blue switches for a while. My wife was tired of hearing my clicky keyboard noise when she was taking phone calls

GMMK Pro with linear switches and GMK Cyberdeck keycaps Depending on how I get used to these switches I may upgrade to a tactile switch down the line. One of the benefits of hot-swap

Looks good.  I've never tried the blue before.

I really like my G915 Lightspeed.

I was out looking around and noticed that Walmart had the Razer Blackwidow on clearance for $60 in case anyone was interested in a cheap mechanical keyboard.

Blues are loud. They're like the old IBM Model M where there's a loud click with every key press.

Linears are pretty quiet considering, and this keyboard has several layers of foam which helps reduce the ping noise even more.

The Shine 7 is one of the keyboards I was considering but they have long lead times. mechanicalkeyboards.com said they are expecting summertime for a brown (tactile) re-stock.

I got a GMMK 2 with the Fox Switches that I love except for the size.  I was hoping the nearly full-size would suffice but I really need a full size for muscle memory.  I have been waiting on them to release their full size with the fox switches or have another presale of them by themselves so I could build one but no dice yet.

I am planning on buying a separate numpad at some point but not the GMMK version. I don't need a slider or another knob. I am looking at Keychron for that. Machined aluminum with a simple design.

I have only used 2 in 23 years. The one went bad maybe 10 years ago when the spacebar got lazy, didn't sound right anymore, still worked though. I might send it off to clickykeboards.com to get refurbed, just haven't.  I have a couple more in storage.

That's one of the reasons I wanted a hot swap PCB. There is an incredible amount of switch options available now.

I used to use a Logitech G910 mechanical keyboard, but wanted something a bit smaller. Plus, the mechanical wasn't a huge thing for me. I like, just not really my thing. So now I use a Logitech MX Keys paired with a Logitech MX Master 3S mouse. Both are wireless and have a good battery life. Plus, both have 3 channels you can switch between and pair them to different devices. The mouse I only use on my computer, but the keyboard is paired to my computer and my phone. So if I need to type a long text, I can hit the switch and start typing.

I will say that I've been using Logitech products (keyboard, mouse, headphones, webcam) for years and have never any issues with any of them.

Logitech makes good stuff. We have several Logitech mice floating around.

The keyboard my new one is replacing was perfectly fine outside of just being loud. I'm a full time student so I type a lot and my wife is a home health nurse so she's often sitting on the other side of the room charting or calling doctor's offices and patients. She'd have to leave the room to talk to people when I was typing

I also kind of got into the allure of semi-custom or custom mechanical keyboards. This is actually the 3rd one I've owned. I use a Filco full size for a long time.

Is there any real difference with mechanical keyboards or do you guys just like it because you are bros?

Liking it because it is cool is a fine answer, but my nerd friends have been all about mechanical keyboards for a long time now, and it's gotten to the point where I just can't ask them.

I really don't see the benefit. Are you guys coding or typing a fuck ton? Or is it just.... what is it? Why do so many guys love these?

I do type a lot. As I mentioned above I'm a full time student so a lot of papers to write and just general computer use with some gaming.

There is no comparison for typing feedback with a mechanical switch. Cheap keyboards like dome or membrane keyboards are often low profile type keycaps which is hard to maintain a good typing speed because its easier to get lost where your fingers are. I touch type so I'm not looking at the keyboard. I have to be able to tell where my fingers are. Mechanical keyboards are angled in such a way and each row is actually a different profile keycap so they're designed to be easier to tell where your fingers are on the keyboard without looking down.

The keycap profile is called Cherry which has been around for decades. Going back to typewriters and word processors people have almost always typed on keyboards that have feedback. Membrane keyboards were a cheap option to throw a keyboard in with a computer. Mechanical switches are VERY reliable and often have rated lifespans of something like 50 million keystrokes. Membrane keyboards are relatively fragile and wear out much faster. My MBP had the horrible butterfly switches which were horrible for reliability and feel.

Last forever when gaming. I pound the same 5 or 6 keys year in and year out without a problem. Rubber dome keys would break in short order.

On top of that, it does what I tell it every time which is a competitive advantage over rubber dome. Same consistent key press that always actuates.

Now if you want to ask if there's anything better about a 200 dollar one and my 70 dollar one, not really. Mine uses some of the best keys available.

You might actually utilize the keys a million times and you just want longevity.

I think I kinda get it. Blend between cool, longevity and production if you're in a high word typing environment. (I'm going to add dynamically because gun forum)

Basically i need this because it is cool if I don't need this, but if I do need this then I definitely need this, and I'm just out of the loop.

Rubber dome keyboards sound exactly like what they are. Under the keys is a rubber mat that has domes molded into it that provides feedback. That rubber will wear out inconsistently especially for gamers that hit a small number of keys constantly. Eventually, the rubber breaks down and cracks.

Like I said they were designed around throwing in a cheap keyboard for bundle deals but also became popular for the sheer cheap price.

I've found the click ratings on keyboards, and mice in particular, to be greatly exaggerated in real world applications.
They outperform cheap ones in most cases, sure. I do mostly production type stuff, light gaming, and shitposting, and I go through a mouse or two a year. There's no way I'm reaching the click lifespan.

I'm pretty hard on them, I really think my grip on the mice and how hard I press the keys kills them fast. Like in a movie where some inadequate character gets his punch caught by the badass, and crushes his hand, dropping him to his knees kind of pressure.

Really the keyboard ratings should be, "can withstand 1,000 smashes from a toddler's milk cup", or "30 'You Died' keyboard smash tantrums", or "Can still operate after dumping an entire coffee or Mountain Dew on it", or "Can withstand if you haven't slept in 36 hours and the pressure on your keys would poke a hole in leather."

Kind of like an LED flashlight that the emitter is rated for 50,000 hours, but the light gets hot like the surface of the sun when it's on high, and only last a couple hundred hours.

If you type a lot, the differences are obvious.  Most users don't type a lot all at once anymore.  But mechanicals feel smoother, lighter, and have physically satisfying feedback when used, vs. the cheap mushy membrane garbage.
