[QUOTE=Kerry56;2767271]Not my experience at all. And besides, there are a dozen different types of mechanical keyboards, with different pressure for activation and feel. The Cherry Brown and Red switches seem to work well for me, though I have enjoyed the older Alps keyboards too.
Liggy is pretty fast at this! Probably gets a lot more practice than me. :)[/QUOTE]
Liggy is pretty fast - I am at your level, scoring 52 in the test. Then again, I do not need to be fast, only accurate.
Like you, I enjoy a mechanical keyboard and have tested red, brown and blue versions of the Cherry switches. What I found was the following:
[B]Red[/B] - Equal force all the way down for the press actually gets my typing slow down a little.
[B]Brown[/B] - Here I gain up to ten words extra pr minute because of feedback to my fingers that the key was pressed. the physical feedback also reveals if I managed to click two adjacent keys at the same time and so it is my favorite.
[B]Blue[/B] - While at least equally quick as the brown (I have ‘heavy fingers’), the clicking noise is too much for it to be used in a day to day situation. For gaming though, this would be my choice.
