I dont care about mechanical keybords because i dont like the long key travel distance

Can i have some recommendations for a slim KB?

I had a cherry easyhub, it was well built with a metal base but the square keys without the diagonal edges are a hell to type with and tooke me months to get used to (it died from a spilled drink)
Got a (spillproof) fujitsu 910 but this shit barely lastey beyond the 1 year warranty, with keys getting (physically) stuck, creaking and being louder than even a mechanical KB.
Currently considering a Rapoo KB, they look sexy and the build quality is solid but the arrow keys freak me out a little

This really doesn't make the keys feel any more shallow, it just helps with cushioning the impact of your fingers against the metal backplate.

>From what I understand there isn't any bump when using red, but then does it still feel really different from a rubber dome keyboard?
Yes. Rubber domes are more tactile than most Cherry MX switches because the latter are ultimately linear by design.

>Isn't the whole point of a mechanical keyboard to have that feedback?
Not necessarily. For me, mechanical switches are simply a means to a more consistent and pleasant typing experience. Whether you like feedback or not is entirely up to preference, though personally I can't stand linear switches.

Of course, it doesn't have to be mechanical to achieve such experience (see Topre).
