deterdettol's views on Cherry MX Brown switches. - deterdettol

This quote was added by deterdettol
Many users of mechanical keyboards hate Brown key switches. Its critics blast its scratchy, weak tactile bumps. For me, however, I wanted a switch that isn't as noisy as Blues, but found Reds too light and prone to accidental presses. I found that Browns with the slight tactile bump provided slightly more resistance and feedback which I still find useful, and the slightness of the bump is not an issue for me during typing because I tend to bottom out anyway. All in all they suit my needs well.

The problem with MX Browns isn't that their garbage tactile bump, but that you could get a myriad of aftermarket switches. Gateron, Zeal, Kailh, etc. They all make switch offerings with significantly smoother actuation and a more substantial tactile bump. All in all, brown switches suck because of what's on the market, and at times for cheaper.
