I'm back to using Cherry MX blue switch keyboard.

After using Brown switch for about 4 months.. I feel like Blue switch suits well for me. And Damn, I'm using CM Storm Quick fire rapid, it is so sturdy - I bought it like 6 years ago and it is still going!

@nirmal I had that keyboard and thought it was great, but I had one with weird switches (black?) and had to get rid of it

@stchris Yeah, When I was starting with mechanical keyboards, I reallly don't know which Cherry MX switches I should go for.

But the thing is, I know that I wanted a tactical feedback.. So, I went with blue switches first and then recently bought brown one. But I kinda like this blue switch.

I mean if I'm working alone.. Otherwise, I'll go for Brown.

@nirmal I’m really happy with the Apple Magic Keyboard right now. Feels great to type on and its quiet. I’m also evaluating an ergonomic keyboard from Perixx right now, because I’m getting old

@stchris Chiclet keyboards are great. I don't know when I was using Macbook Pro mid 2012, I was hitting 103 WPM on typeracer.

But with mechanical keyboards, I can go only upto 83 to 86 average. Weird though!

If you are looking for ergonomic mechanical ones, you could give this a shot.

@nirmal I love brown switches. Blue feels just a little too loose.

@cavaliertusky Got it.. Blue switches drives other people up the walls.. haha
