    - Available @ 30g, 45g and 55g variation

    Buckling Springs:
    - Tactile and clicky
    - 65g to actuate

    Glossary:

    Clicky refers a "click" sound is produced when the switch is actuated.

    Tactile refers to a "bump" that is felt when the switch is actuated.

    Nkey Rollover (NKRO) is the ability of the keyboard to recognize as many keys as you can press at once.
    Most keyboards are 6-KRO or 2-KRO(99% of keyboards).

    104 / Full-sized is the standard-sized keyboard.

    87 / Tenkeyless / 80% is a keyboard without the Numpad.

    Personal Opinions:

    Blues:
    Blue have a just the right amount of weight to type on and it give off a clicky sound which make you want to scream "OMGWTFBBQ THIS IS AWESOME, LET ME TYPE FOREVER".
    Note that clickiness might irritate others who are around you.
    Recommended for general use and RTS-players.
    Gaming | - - - - | | Typing

    Brown:
    Brown are light and comfortable to type on. With the tactile bump. I can easily find the actuation point and "hover" near the actuation point.
    Note that Brown are too light for some as they unknowingly press some keys just by resting their finger on the keyboard.
    Recommended for people with a light touch or computer-related injuries.
    Gaming | - - | - - | Typing

    Black:
    Black have a heavy feel and presents a resistance. Due to the heaviness, they are great for gaming as it is harder to bottom out and very quiet to type on.
    Note that if you have the habit to bottom out keys, Black will feel heavy and tired your fingers quickly.
    Recommend to people who game alot and type only short messenges
    Gaming | | - - - - | Typing

    Clear
    Clear have have very pronounced bump which helps you to rarely bottom out, hence making it the quietest switch. It's a very nice typing switch as typing-errors are greatly reduced.
    Recommend to people who need silent keyboard with a strong tactile feedback.
    Gaming | - - - | - | Typing

    Red:
    Red are extremely light and presents no resistance to type on. Due to it's lightness, expect many typos and accidental pressing of keys at the start.
    Recommend to people who are good at touch-typing.
    Gaming | | | | | | | Typing

    Buckling Spring:
    Buckling Spring still give the best typing sensation despite the age of this technology.
    It feels even better that Blue Cherry but the "noise" is not acceptable to most.
    If you born when typewriters were still around, you will definitely enjoy Buckling Spring.

    Topre:
    These are the perfect version of rubber domes and last much longer than conventional rubber domes.
    After using other mechanical keyboard, any other keyboard with rubber domes feel mushy(includ. the Topre)
    These are exotic switches which comes with a exotic price tag.

    These are MY PERSONAL OPINIONS. Reader's discretion is advised.
    Everyone have different opinions.

    Could Include IBM Model M, Topre, Deck legend and others.

    Currently own a Filco Brown, gg to meet my Model M soon and a Unicomp should be on the way if SmallWalruses 2nd MO goes well.

    Don't worry, I'm still updating it... It's eating alot of time...

    I will place Model M under Unicomp.
    Will updater Topre soon.

    I'm reluctant to add Deck due to the unavailability in Singapore and unless a Deck user turns up...

    Model M's should be given a place of their own due to their illustrious history! It will also help identify who has these legendary keyboards as compared to mixing it with Unicomp kbs. I believe most people would not consider an original IBM Model M to be a Unicomp or vice-versa.

    There are deck users in VR just that they are rare. I saw a few decks up for sale in the past.

    A mechanical kb glossary would be good too, esp for noobs. Great job so far

    Darned. Look at those muscle fingers…

    PS: My Unicomp has spoilt me, when I type on my MBP nowadays I keep pounding on all the keys like nobody's business

    Anyway to take the opportunity of pimping a bit for our Ducky MO

    Undarken your missing some other things for the Ducky 9008 MO.

    1. full set of key caps (laser etched and printed)
    2. WASD white keys with black lettering
    3. plastic key puller


    Notable features:

    1. Full NKRO
    2. Replacable cable wire which is mini usb.
    3. Laser etched keys
    4. Metal back plate (sturdy)
    5. Has the standard 104 keys + 4 additional media keys
    6. Using the Function key, you can disable the windows key so you don't accidentally press it while in a game
    7. Ducky uses their own controller, so no worry that they would have the same problem other Costar keyboards have in regards to the controller.

    HHKB and Topre Realforce Keyboard available @ Tec Drome Sim Lim Square or CH Computer @ Funan and ComputerShop.

    The last shop should give you the pricing.
