Mechanical Keyboard & Type of Switches...

I have blues in my keyboard. Honestly it's great for typing, but they're rather loud and not very good for gaming. Stay away from blues if you plan on mostly gaming.

Deck keyboards are definitely the most well build ones around, so if you're looking for a long lasting sturdy keyboard I would check them out.

It is mostly personal preference. You should just go for the thing that feels best for you. Browns are kind of in between. So they are a safe be in the sense that it is unlikely that you will hate them.

Using a Ducky Shine 3 with Cherry MX Browns and love it. You'll have to find out which switch you prefer.

Comes with blue/black/brown/red keys, although idk if you guys in US ever really heard of roccat
(basically razer looks with german quality).
Absolutley perfect for me, I think steelseries is around the same quality but their keyboards lack extra macro keys.
Or you can take a look at logitech.

Personally I like the cherry MX browns.


I like browns the best too. Not too loud but has a tactile click.

Get blues. Get o rings. Lessens the impact of the bottoming out sound and makes it closer to browns + it's not as scratchy.
