So I'm interested in burning a little B-day money I got a few weeks ago but haven't been able to decide which investment to put it into. I think I'm going to invest in a Mechanical Keyboard. I've got it narrowed down to a choice of two and was hoping for some feedback. A I'm a simplistic traditionalist by nature. I like less bells and whistles and flashy stuff (well except case LEDS) and prefer raw performance. Main use is gaming but that tends to come and go for me so I want a good balance. I'm coming from standard Dell keyboards at work which I highly dislike for the loose feeling of the scissor keys. At home I currently have the Saitek Eclipse original : http://www.amazon.com/Saitek-PZ30AU-Eclipse-Keyboard/dp/B0007TJ7TE While a good keyboard , I'm looking to upgrade after a 5 years of use. In MX Brown Switch : http://www.amazon.com/Filco-Majestouch-2-Tenkeyless-FKBN87M-EFB2/dp/B004ZJPSGI I've heard alot of great things on Filco builds, but also hear they have some pingy keys... I chose the Ninja version primarily so that the keys don't rub off over time. I still tend to look at the keys frequently when typing so having them there on the side is still a plus. In MX Blue switch : http://www.amazon.com/Das-Keyboard-DASK3ULTMS1-Ultimate-Wired/dp/tech-data/B003F7WXTG Das also has some good reviews and comments. I would prefer a tenkeyless version as I almost never use it at home. Again I still look at my hands frequently when typing so I am hoping this might help force me to learn to look less. So I have a two fold question : Does anyone have experience with both of these keyboards that can give a direct comparison ? How do you feel about the tactile feel of the Blue vs Brown switches ? The clicking I can do with or without. I love the clackity clacking , but the fiance' will likely kick my ass if she hears it all night when trying to sleep/read or whatever she does while I'm oblivious and blowing **** up. But how do they "feel" ?
