I guess it depends about brand, but better build quality and maintenance are pretty good reasons.

The same point as mechanical with almost any switch?

Yep question needs clarification. If you are thinking a Cherry Red switch feels just like any old rubber dome board, you'd be wrong.

yea they don't feel like rubber dome keys, they are nice and smooth, and they are all consistent, and will generally keep the same feel throughout the life of the keyboard, unlike rubber dome keyboards.

they will start feeling really squishy after a while, but if you bottom out a lot when you type get some o-rings or those foam pads that also limit the travel to just beyond the actuation point in the key stroke

i haven't used browns or blues yet, i used black keyswitches on the cash registers back when i worked at target, almost all cash registers/POS devices with keys use black keyswitches

i got used to the linear feel typing on those things so i knew i'd be happy with red switches

You sound like my coworkers

I'm guessing that he means: why bother with a mechanical keyboard at all, if you're gonna get one with MX Red switches. As in, Reds are soft and boring and not clicky so wtf is the point.

I have Browns at work and Reds at home, I love Reds. I had Blues and didn't like them due the noise. Sure, Reds don't need a lot of force but I find them very responsive.

Cherry Red are still a lot smoother than rubber domes.
