Amazon has the Corsair K95 with Cherry MX Brown switches at 109.99 with free shipping and free 1 day shipping for prime members. This is a return to previous prime day pricing, likely due to the new K95 XT arriving on the market. Brown switches for those who enjoy the tactile bump, but need to be able to hear sounds other than typing.

K95 Brown user, looooong time (the old RGB from years ago with 18 GKeys model) user.

If you've never used mechanical, MX Speed feels fine. Noticeably better than membrane keys.

If you've used MX or the like keycaps before, MX Speed feels soft. Honestly, after typing on one for a few minutes, it wasn't super noticeable anymore though.

I specifically checked out the new K95 MX Speed because my current K95 RGB needs replacing. The MX Brown was almost $200 where as the MX Speed was on sale at or below $100 over Christmas.

If you can get the MX Brown for cheaper, that'd be my choice. Overall, I'd rather just go reds next time. The slight hitch in brown typing versus red can get old after a while. It's not bad, but eh. Live and learn I guess.

All this being said, make sure you get a warranty. I've had key ghosting, and no full key failure from my K95s. Also not a huge fan of losing the G keys. I went with the K95 over the K70 for the extended G keys. Now they're all removed down to 6. As someone that has tons of things set to those g keys, it's not a fun loss.

Anywho, hope that answers some questions. Normal Keyboards < MX Speed < MX Brown

I would not consider this keyboard quiet. Certainly very nice and built like a tank. Unfortunately, it is USB 2.0 Pass Through on the keyboard. I've had some issues with the volume scroll button sticking where the volume will keep trying to max out- though it was rare and I haven't experienced it for awhile now. I bought the gunmetal version for $129 during cyber monday. So I'd say this is a solid deal for all the same features.

Is there a real benefit to https://www.bestbuy.com/site/cors...Id=5713210 ?

I know OP is "Cherry MX Brown" and my link is "Cherry MX Speed" but is there a real difference that can be appreciated by the average user? Also, if both are $199.99 MSRP, any thoughts on why only the brown switch version is reduced?

I read it's mainly personal preference. Last time the reds were on sale. I've seen people say the browns go on sale less frequently but can't confirm

Excellent price for the cherry brown. I waited for a while and got it for $129.99 on sale, so this is definitely slick. I had the speed cherry at first and it's annoying because sometimes I barely touch the key and it'll input those keys. It's really sensitive

I prefer MX Brown. More clicky than red, but less clicky than blue. It's nice middle of the road.

Best way to find out is go to your local bestbuy and try few of them out see how you like the feel.

key switch type is largely personal preference but to answer your question yes, there is a real difference between the brown and silver switches. im typing this on my k70 mk2 se with silver switches. the main difference between the silver and brown is that silvers are a linear switch while browns are a tactile switch. linear switches are a smooth press all the way down. linear switches youll feel a slight "bump" when you press the key down indicating a key press. silvers are similar to reds in that they are linear switches with the key difference being silvers actuation distance being 1.5mm as opposed to the reds 2.0mm. to put it simply, a silver switch "activates" a key press sooner than a red (or brown) because it requires less travel distance. hence the "mx speed" label. compared to my older k70 with reds, that 0.5mm difference is perceptible to me. generally linear switches are preferred for gaming while tactile switches are preferred for typists/general keyboard use. but again, personal preference.

Been using the LogitecG710+ for a few years, and it has 24 G programmable keys, with great backlit keys all across, with option to highlight just game keys. (I dont even game, AT ALL). It has the multimedia keys with volume rocker, a great feature I use all the time, and the keys feel OK. It might be a bit "noisy", but I kind of like hearing me typing super fast....But I can see how a quiet KB might be something to look for, as the noise gets old quick.

I have this keyboard and I hate it.

I've been using it for a few months and I occasionally crash vehicles because I'm not aware I'm actuating the a or d key while using wasd

Even at this price I'd recommend looking else where

Cherry MX Brown shouldn't do that. They actuate after you get the tactile click. Red MX's are more prone to that behavior you're mentioning.

With that, the MX Speeds are in my opinion the next step.
