They're a delight to type on and once you get one you might never want to go back to a membrane keyboard. The only downside is some types are pretty loud - you'll see that there are red, brown, blue and more switch types. Check out this article for more info:

I'm pretty sure you're right. I've got one, it's good. I do miss the numpad though. I think they're clones/knockoffs of the blues.

Can someone explain to me why a mechanical keyboard is better than the wireless regular keyboard I have ?

I actually prefer gateron browns, so that they are knockoff might not be a bad thing. If this keyboard had browns i'd buy it in a heartbeat.

<p>&nbsp;</p><blockquote>boklos<p>Can someone explain to me why a mechanical keyboard is better than the wireless regular keyboard I have ?</p></blockquote><p>&nbsp;</p><p>boklos, it actually uses metal contacts and springs rather than conducting pads with membranes as springs. this makes them able to last for much longer, if you check an old keyboard with membranes it is probably bad. The way the keys &quot;feel&quot; is also much better, and they come in different styles. The blue keys (what these are) are loud though, so don't get this one if you are in a quiet environment.</p>

Here's an article with diagrams and explanations: https://sitesdoneright.com/blog/2...r-keyboard

TL;DR: regular keyboards have squishy rubber keys. mechanical keyboards are easier and more pleasing to type on
