Fuck it, I recently got over being a rage-aholic and shit, so upgrading from the cheapo scissor-switch mushboards seemed like a worthwhile step, but broke in school and shit.

Then I saw this fucking thing. Clickier than I hoped, but I knew it was an audible click (apparently closest to mx green?) switch so I'm pretty damn happy. Love how heavy it is too.

$40~50 for actual switches (not membrane+faked switches) seems crazy, and goddamn if it doesn't feel a lot nicer than it cost.

Email says I ordered "clicky action" so I'm assuming that means blue because the others are rarer according to your infographic.

You're probably right. Amazon's receipt says I ordered from the "The Keyboard Company", here's hoping their returns policy is decent.

if you just ordered it then it probably hasn't shipped yet and you can just cancel it

Nah ordered it late last night. Already had the dispatch notice when I woke

Been using laptops pretty much exclusively for the last 10 years or so, so when I was ordering my new build from amazon last night I threw that keyboard in because it looked nice.

Who knows, I might even like it and not need to use the returns policy.

like you said you probably got blues, and if all you've been using is laptops this keyboard should feel orgasmic
however blues are very loud and that might annoy you

yeah i don't think any mech is going to feel "bad" vs a laptop keyboard

whether you made the exact ideal keyboard purchase doesn't matter at all and i think you should stop thinking about it and close this thread and never come back. the important thing is that what you've bought is something that is an improvement on something that you will use basically every day.
