  1. The world of mechanical keyboards is HUGE!
  2.  
  3. I frequent /r/mechanicalKeyboards, which is full of helpful info and is very friendly.
  4. There is also GeekHack.org,keebtalk.com,deskthority.net, among others.
  5.  
  6. I'm generally a fan of TenKeyless boards, with a seperate numpad I can move out of the way when gaming.
  7. --------------------------------------------------
  8. First Decision is what Switch.
  9.  
  10. There are a few high quality brands:
  11. 1. Cherry - Most common quality switch
  12. 2. Kailh  - Making very high quality switches for the last few years.  Speed switches and Box switches are great.  Razor and others are meh.
  13. 3. Topre  - Very nice switches, not great for gaming.
  14.  
  15. Avoid: Greetech, Matias,
  16. Meh:   Gateron, Outemu
  17. --------------------------------------------------
  18. Switch Style:
  19.  
  20. Clicky (Feel and hear a Click)
  21.   + Cherry - MX Blue (50g), MX Green(80g), MX White(85g)
  22.   + Kailh  - Box White, Box Navy, Box Pale Blue
  23.   + Kailh  - Speed Gold, Speed Bronze
  24.  
  25. Tactile (Feel the click with less sound)
  26.   + Cherry - MX Brown, (45g)  MX Clear (65g), MX Light Grey (80g)
  27.   + Kailh  - Box Brown, Box Royal, Box Burnt Orange
  28.   + Kailh  = Speed Copper
  29.  
  30. Linear  (No Click, Way less sound.  Key goes straight down with no feedback)
  31.   + Cherry - MX Red (45g), MX Black (60g), MX Dark Grey (80g), MX Silent (Red)
  32.   + Kailh  - Box Red, Box Black, Box Dark Yellow
  33.   + Kailh  - Speed Silver
  34. --------------------------------------------------
