    This appeared as an add on my FB today. Thought I'd share as I found it quite amusing

    Chris speaks the truth, only a matter on time until you realise it.

    My bedroom is next door to my study. I think if I had one of those keyboards Donna would disown me!

    Doesn't have to click ;)
    Just get one with different switches, my current main keyboard has reds, no click, just the sound of the keys moving and the thud if I bottom out :p

    What is the point of a mechanical keyboard if it doesn't click? That removes the entire selling point for me :fuckthatshit:

    i honestly don't get the mechanical keyboard thing. It's like the complete opposite of what i look for in a keyboard. I want something soft, with easy keypresses so I can type quickly and without having to push as far and with as much force - exactly like my microsoft sidewinder X5.

    Well some mechanical switches are like that (I think the ALPS are hairline pushes!)

    Besides, I bottom out on every key press :pokerface:

    Though sounds like you need a laptop keyboard to type on [​IMG]

    I have an X4 and the most important thing is that it doesn't ghost, it also has a lovely backlight which I wouldn't be without.

    Also have an X4, my room is so dark because of it stupid shame. Wouldn't get anything done without the red backlight. Plus it looks awesome. Plus plus, the macros are great for Skyrim :awwyeah:

    Macros? Autohotkey Problem solved.:trollface:

    I guess you could say I used it to cheat on BFBC2 - mapped a mouse button to toggle crouch (ie, press mouse button once, it keeps sending the crouch key to the PC) until pressed again. Also mapped spot to trigger. So I'd spot and shoot in one button press :eek:ops:

    I found that pressing Q at the same time was generally less hassle.

    You cheat.

    I gave up when I realised it WAS probably cheating. And I read that Punkbuster could detect Autohotkey and class it as cheating.

    People want different things from mechanical keyboards.

    I'm currently using a board with red switches, which is incredibly light to type on, blues (which click) are heavier.

    Regardless, if you don't get it, then carry on as you are, let people who love them love them :)

    Edit:
    Charles has just pointed out another advantage of mechanicals, far longer life.

    Fairplay to this wave it cost me £40, is ergonomically comfortable and I have played over 1000 hours ont it, aloong with about 50,000 words of word processing (I bought it back in my typist days). Its had heavy use over the 5 year.

    George - what brand of keyboard is that then? I assume that not all mechanicalz have blue and red colour coordination... that would be too coordinated of the market :p

    Yeah, the switches are standard - the difference is how the keyboards look (one of the cheapest mechanicals, the Razr Blackwidow) uses Cherry Blue switchs, the same as the Filco Majestictouch 2 keyboard. It's just that the Filco is awesome and the Razr feels cheap and horrible.

    So essentially you're paying for the mechanical "packaging" for the keys.

    To make matters more fun, I'm using a Cherry Brown switch based keyboard ;)

    Oh, and the keys on mechanicals are completely customisable as George has shown (I'm just waiting for the company to update it's website so I can get a UK layout set made for me!)
