People said this switch is mushy. I tried this switch at the Best Buy and I agree with that opion; it is not my style and is too mushy. I'm using MX clear switch for the office as it is quiet and seeking a MX blue keyboard for a home office.

Yup, bought this keyboard and returned it because it feels mushy. I went back to using mx browns

Thanks for clarifying. I've been using a cheapo velocifire TKL01 with outemu browns and have been wanting something with blues for maximum click. These are clearly not the droids I'm looking for.

They aren't nearly as clicky as other switches but they aren't really "Mushy" in my opinion. I'm typing on a G613 right now and they are quieter than a clicky keyboard while still having good actuation and I prefer them to other switches generally. You should really head to a store and try out some Romers and see if you like them. They seem to be love or hate.

I have the G Pro [logitechg.com]and it has Romer G switches and I love them. They're not *too* loud but still have a good tactile feedback to them. I know it's just fortnite but a lot of pro players [prosettings.net] use logitech's romer g switches so it must mean it's well-received.

The best deal I've ever seen for it was this one with the mouse for $90 but it was now two years ago almost. Sorry :/

i'd go to bestbuy and try these first. romer-g is only worth it if you want RGB
without a lot of light bleed. to get them on a unlit board seems pretty pointless.
after trying all their boards, i ended up getting a G610 when it went on sale
which has everything i wanted; no bleed, white dimmable led, easy to remove
and clean brown switch keys, rugged weighted key bed... it's lovely.

I got the g410 when it was on clearance at Staples (but it's since been broken because I was carrying it around in my backpack with my laptop, unfortunately)

I LOVED the Romer G switches. I own a cherry blue keyboard for work and a cherry brown keyboard for home, and a spare outemu (sp?) blue cheapie. Out of all of those, I like the browns the best, but the Romer G's.... they felt great, kinda like Browns but just a tad softer. Maybe like Browns with o-rings?

If this were rgb I'd be buying 2 of them.

Edit: I know that's wishful thinking. But if it was RGB for like 30 bucks more, I'd do it.
