Mechanical keyboard switches are much different than those found on keyboards of cheaper quality and price. These keyboards built with mechanical switches are longer lasting and functioning. Thus this type of keyboard gets lots of positive feedback from buyers. The individuals who have purchased these types of keyboards are very satisfied with its performance but still, experiences vary from person to person. A particular person might be very satisfied with this keyboard and can suggest another to buy the same, but that person should surely test once with the mechanical switches whether it is comfortable for him or not.
The customizations in keyboards
The keyboards of several brands are having color-coded switches which are very confusing for some. Some companies are now manufacturing their own customized switches, for example, the Logitech and the Razer keyboard.
Some special facts about the two switches
Both the switches Green and Blue function in the same way. The Blue switch when clicked instantly gets activated with just a soft stroke. Thus a user using this switch gets immediate feedback. In case of the Green switch, the functioning is similar but the key requires more force to get activated. People who have lots of typing work can go with this type of keyboard but a small difference is that this switch creates loud sounds when used. It is thus recommended to avoid this keyboard while working in a common workplace with other people or when the wall of separation in the workplace is thin.
There are some gaming keyboards which have switches that can be interchanged but this facility is not available in all types of keyboards. In present days keyboards are coming with some extra features like some of them are containing pass-through for USB which makes it easier for users to attach a peripheral device with a USB port to the keyboard and not having to hook them to the computer. Some keyboard has extra buttons, especially for gamers.
