What keyboard should I choose ?

So I want to know what to chose between tt esports poseidon z (kailh brown) or quickfire tk (cherry mx brown) ?

The reason why I am asking is that the quickfire tk uses cherry so better but not full size and its for 85US$ on newegg,

the poseidon z on the other hand uses kail brown, but its full size AND its 72US$ on newegg.

So should go with the 72$ kailh or 85$ cherry ?????

I heard from people who tried and said kailh feel similar to cherry so its not a big deal choosing kailh, but what do you think ?

 

**I don't really mind the short keyboard I just think a full size one is worth more for the money.**

I swear by cherry, and the quickfire tk is alright.  But I've also heard that the poseidon z is good as well.  If you're looking for a sub-$100 mechanical keyboard, I suggest you check out the Logitech G710+

so the kailh is "good enough" but the problem is that its it worth taking the kailh one for its price (and added 10 keys) or should I just ass 13$ and get a better genuine cherry mx one

I haven't felt either myself so I can't say, just trying to provide some other source.  In my opinion, there are some things that you will never really experience until you physically get your hands (or whatever) on the real thing.  Keyboards, speakers, and displays being a few examples.

thats why I am posting here to see from those who did compare cherry to kailh and to get an idea for the right step, but mostly I want to see if kailh actuation force differs much from cherry or not. because I might say f*k it and go with kailh, or I might say better to stick to good ol' cherry.
anyway thank you for replying.

sure thing.  I just wanted to show that they're not considered totally equivalent, and if I were you, I'd want to try it myself anyways; even if you get a lot of replies from people who use them doesn't necessarily mean you'll like them :)
