I bought this recently, and I really like the clicky keys. Good price.

I've never actually understood what their differences were. Is it worth the upgrade?

Blue is loudest. Red and Brown are quieter.

In for one. I've never had a mechanical keyboard. Hopefully it's as nice to type on as everyone says.

Thanks OP!

Good deal, typing on it now. Have used mine for over a year - no fading on any of the lettering.

Only downsides are (1) I sometimes wish it had a number pad and (2) the whole office knows if I'm working (well, typing) or just surfing the net when it's real quiet.

Completely regret buying one with blue switches. Don't understand how anyone finds it satisfying to type on a loud keyboard.

I don't agree with you, these loud keyboards helps me to relax!

A few things to know before I explain. There are two types of feedback: tactile and audible. If you can feel it, it's tactile. If you can hear it, it's audible. Actuation force tells you how much weight you need to use to press the key down. 1 US nickel is 5g of actuation force. That being said, all the below examples are descriptions of the Cherry MX line of switches:

Red switches = Linear switch. No tactile or audible feedback. Lightest key (45g to actuation).
Black switches = Linear switch. No tactile or audible feedback. Heaviest switch (60g to actuation).
Brown switches = Tactile switch. Mild bump when actuating. No audible feedback. Mid-weight switch (50-55g to actuation).
Blue switches = Tactile switch. Mild bump and audible click when actuating. Mid-weight switch (50-55g to actuation).

These four are the most common. There are other colors (Clear, White, Green), but work similarly in function to the four above (heavier switch, more pronounced bump, etc.). There are also rebrands of existing keys (Kailh, Outemu, TTS, Gateron, etc) which work all the same, just with different colors. For example, Razer uses it's own switches so the Razer Green switch is similar to a Cherry MX Blue.

To each their own. Personally, I find myself only using light linear switches (Reds), but it's fun to click click click away on a Blue switch. Then I realize how loud and annoying it can be and go back to my o-ringed reds.

excellent summary. just to add my two cents to this: if you're looking to buy a serious gaming keyboard, spend a little extra for quality builds. the keycaps on my logitech g710+ broke quickly, which started my search for better boards. settled on a cooler master masterkeys pro, but there are other good brands to consider (ikbc, hhkb, filco, ducky, leopold, vortex, etc)

I have the ten keyless version at work and it has been pretty solid. I had to find a way to compete with the nose of my bosses buckling spring model m. The keyboard snobs don't approve but I'm happy with it.
