Huh? What is major difference and what is your opinion on them?

Greens are pretty uncommon, so I don't imagine many here have experience with them.

Either, though most will probably say ducky because of the shines.

My understanding is that greens are just like blue but you need more force.

I've never used em but I might like it. Sometimes I think blues are perfect and sometimes I think they're a bit light on the force needed to hit it.

Hmm. This is a tough decision for me. Especially since it is around $100-$130 for a keyboard.

so get something like this?

As far as I know, there's never been a keyboard with all Greens until Cooler Master released one last year or so. Green switches may be used on the space bar of keyboards that otherwise use Blues. Can't say I've ever pressed a Green switch but from what I've read, it's a stiffer Blue.

If you haven't used a mechanical keyboard before try out the different type of switches in a store. I think they also sell sample kits.

Honestly I don't know why anyone would want greens. Blacks are too much force for most people at 60g actuation force. And a 20g difference might not seem huge but it is considering how much you're pressing the keys.

Green is basically the same as blue but requires more force.

I think I'll play it safe and go with blue.
Is keyboard I linked good? I'm in Canada so only place to get ducky/filco is online and can't try it in store.
