I got a corsair mechanical keyboard as a gift, and I'm really loving it.

Since I didn't spend anything on it, I cant really feel remorse or anything like that.

Typing at first was difficulty because of the crazy sensitivity, but ive learned to love it.

Got a laptop with chiclet keys that I've learned to despise since I got the keyboard, so there's that.

They can be memes.

I'm fine with my 10 bux Microsoft 600 keyboard these days.

Mechanical keyboards >cost a lot more >can have issues like key ping (when you press certain keys you hear a loud metallic PING)

They feel better to type on but at the end of the day a keyboard is a keyboard as long as it doesn't feel like absolute shit to type on. I do find that I can type better on a mechanical keyboard though. I think it's the lack of "wobble" on the keys compared to typical membrane keyboards.

But I mean if you spend hours every day on a computer spending like 100 bux on something you use constantly to make your day that little bit more enjoyable is a good investment desu.

Back-lighting is the real meme. Can we ban back-lights on keyboards already? The only reason I can think anyone would actually want that shit is if they can't touch type and want to be able to look at their keyboard constantly to find keys in a dark room.
