That's highly subjective. Try each out and the best one is the one you like the most

Go to a store where they have mechanical keyboards on display and try the feel of the switches for yourself. 

I was 100% sure that I will like MX Browns based on what I read until I tried them.


I like the MX Blue quite a bit more.

Cherry MX Reds are more quiet than Cherry MX Browns, but don't provide tactile feedback. 


My advice: Go to a local store, and try out different key switches. What I like may not be the same as what you like.

Always try out the kind of switches you are interested in, if possible. Good places to try out switches are at Micro Center, Best Buy, or other local computer stores that stock "gaming" items. The keyboard make and model should not affect the feel of the switches much, if at all; so you could go and buy any keyboard with the same switches and expect near identical feel/sound.

I really thought I would like the tacticle feedback until I tried it in the store and it felt too alien and almost hard work.


Reds are a good balance for your first mechanical keyboard. I would recommend anyone starts on reds and goes from their to different things. Unless they know what they want of course.


Love the reds now, best keys I have used!


I have a Corsair K70 Mk2 and love it!

This is a subjective matter, but if you want the most silent switch go for a silenced switch. Many people prefer light linears for gaming a good one would be cherry silent reds, gateron also makes pretty good silenced switches, and are smoother than cherrys but they have a bit more wobble and can sound louder on off centre keystrokes. Good silenced tactile switches you might want to look into would be Zeal pc zilents and Gateron Aliaz switches,

Browns are quieter but give a good click, that's what I'd get at least

wuuut, browns are not quieter than reds, and they're basically just a broken red switch and have minute tactile feed back.
