Blue switches have a little tactile bump you can feel while typing as well as making a loud clicky noise. Brown switches have just the bump. Look up Cherry MX Switches on youtube to see/hear the difference.

I prefer Reds at home because they take the least force to push down (some people think it's way too little) and don't have a noticeable bump. Browns for the office because the tactile feedback is nice.

I don't think these will make you type any better (I'm generally over 100 WPM, so I feel justified in commenting), but it just feels better. Same with reds for gaming better. I just like the feel. It's kind of like a luxury car vs a Kia. They'll both get you to the supermarket in the same amount of time, but one just feels nicer.

Are these as loud as cherry blue switches? Wish it had volume adjustment, but I guess programmable keys can do the same function,

Why is it that you can never seem to find full 104 key brown switch keyboards at these low prices? It's always either blue switch or the gimped 87-key

Can anyone help. What's a blue and a brown switch?

Would this be decent. Have an old Logitech g15 at home that I've had for years. I don't game or anything just appreciate a good keyboard. Would this be a good option to replace the Dell keyboard at work?

I own this keyboard and am not a gamer. I like it better than my Logitechs BUT it is probably way too loud for work.. Keys make a loud sound with every stroke.

I've heard of Microsoft adding keyboard and mouse capabilities to the Xbox one. What do you think the chances of getting this to work work one soon?
