    @SortOfTested the right one on the second row from the top :D (1 indexed)

    Bought those off AliExpress and stuck them on a cheap af keyboard with linear black switches. Currently my favorite is colors scheme and keyboard

    It's lasted about 10 years now, 4 under continuous use. I moved away from larger keyboards.

    Heh, you with all your mechanical keys don't know what you're missing. Behold my amazing Microsoft wired keyboard 500. (Only my example is much dirtier and with a couple of keys split in half.)

    Vortex gang!

    Currently using a Race 3, ISO, MX Brown, don't have pictures right now. I prefer having an F row and dedicated nav keys even if I also have them on a layer.

    An SKB2 95% is my next project (waiting for the GB to start very soon so I can join), PBT Hive should be coming in late July or early August, still undecided on switches.

    What tactile or linear switches would you guys recommend me? My only basis of comparison is Cherry MX Brown (the only other thing I've tried is Cherry MX Blue, kinda liked the feel, but clicky switches are not my thing). What I'd like for a tactile switch is maybe 10-20% heavier spring, smoother and less wobbly operation, a little sharper tactile bump. As for linears, I don't really know what to expect. Silence is a plus for both options, but not a 100% necessity. I'm willing to lube and sticker/film the switches.

    @kamen The Aliaz switches don't really have a sharper bump than the browns, but they're really silent and available in different weights. When you look for crisper tactility anything else that's not brown should be better though. Gateron yellows are really nice linears and slightly heavier than red/brown switches but not silenced. The best combination of those properties are probably found on ZealPC switches, but those cost quite a bit more.

    I used to have a Corsair K70 RGB with Cherry MX Reds (which were not as comfortable to type on as I'd hoped). I recently replaced it with a Leopold FC660C with Topre Silent switches. Significantly more expensive than Cherry switches but wow it was totally worth it.
