Favorite Cherry MX Switch


Recommended Posts

Browns, hands down my favorite one, both my K70 and my CM Quickfire are amazing.

+1

I've used Blues and Reds for over 6 months each and I'm on Browns now (2 months into it), and I love them by far. I miss the Blue click, but it's close enough.

I like browns. Blue's have that audible click. Reds are too soft for productivity work IMO. 

 

Would like to try white's or blacks one day.

The shop I bought my parts from had one of those switch testers. If you're not going to visit any shops maybe ask your friends if you can try out their mech keyboards, if they have any. You can also order a tester.

The hell's aN MX White?

Here's a link to Deskthority with regards to Whites:

http://deskthority.net/wiki/Cherry_MX_White

 

It can have a subtle click but is inconsistent, on a keyboard with Whites, you may have some keys that have a regular click, while others may be more subtle. The Whites on my DS3 Yellow Ed has a more consistent subtle click, however, the Whites on my just acquired KBParadise V60 Mini Cherry White sound quite loud, sounds about the same as the Greens on my other KBParadise V60 Mini.

 

Below is a shot of the Whites on my Yellow Ed, note the little nub just to the right of the stem, Clears with white stem do not have this.

BTW, I had voted Clear as my fave Cherry MX switch......but the irony is that while I have multiple Blues, Browns, Whites, Greens.....I have only one board with Clears.

Waiting for my first MX green board to come in, but since I love a heavier, clickier switch, I'm just going to assume that it's my favourite.

I hate browns (at least on the g710+ with rubber pads), there was almost no tactile feed back, I consider browns as feeling the same as membrane keyboards. On the other hand, blues are magical, they are perfect in every was but sound, and I don't mind the sound at all.

Even Brown w/o orings feel mushy to me, I used to like Browns but not anymore. IF I were to be looking for a keyboard with tactile feedback but no clickity-click, I'd rather get a Clear. Awesome stiffness, and a more pronounced 'bump' than Browns, way more satisfying to use. If there's no Clear and it were down to Browns or Blacks, I'd take the latter, I prefer stiffer switch types and can deal with lack of tactile feedback.

I have never owned a mechanical keyboard, honestly. But from what I've used (Cherry MX Reds/Blues/Blacks), I prefer the Reds. Still using a rubber dome currently.

 

Thanks!

 

Comment with your favorite keyboard too, I'm sure you have one.

Cherry MX Blue on the Corsair K70 RGB

Cherry MX Brown on the Logitech G710+

Cherry MX Black on the Steelseries 6Gv2

 

And I can't wait to feel the Romer-G switches on the Logitech G910 Orion Spark.
