    I use mechanical keyboards occasionally like when I use my roommates computer, but I've gotten so used to the membrane keyboards on my laptop and ipad case that I really don't know.

    go for mech keyboard, no point going for Membrane keyboard. you going for membrane keyboard you can just grab from the off the almost anywhere from the store in any cheap keyboard. there is not much in difference.

    The clicking sound makes it all worth it.
  6. Up till recently I've only used membrane ones, but I've a few quid burning a hole in my pocket, ready to spend on a mechanical (Razer) keyboard, just deciding which one now
  7. I grew up playing on a membrane keyboard, decent brands offered me an okay experience. Now, I'm saving up to buy my first mechanical keyboard; probably a blackwidow x chroma. I've heard the mechanical switches offer better response times but I won't know til I use one for myself.

    Personally, the death stalker was great for its low price but I don't think it was worth it. I would have been better off waiting until I got a mechanical. Mechanical personally seems better for gaming. membrane is a preferred typing keyboard on my end. I'd keep it that way.
  9. It depend on your budget and preference. For the great sensation use mechanical. But for low budget, use membrane. But some membrane have expensive value also, because of the gimmicks, like LED, etc. But membrane is still membrane, it cannot compared directly to mechanical
  10. Mechanical for the feel and the fact I have always used them going back to beginning of personal computers. Cannot handle membrane keyboards which do not have the same feedback.

    I feel that I more of a hybrid user, I have a preference over mechanical keyboard when I gaming as I feel that there is more control to it. And when Im writing report I uses the membrane because I am more comfortable typing with it and I feel much faster with it

    I'd say mechanical with any other developer, but Razer's membrane keyboard feel so smooth, it's hard not to choose them. I have the Anansi and the feel of the buttons is beautiful. I have no doubt that I have pushed the button all the way. They pop up faster than my lightning fingers can type, and they aren't really loud.
  13. I think Razer Switch (green) is more comfortable than cherry blue.
    The best thing is this key actuate lighter than mx, then u will type faster and more accurate.

    Both are fine, mechanical is better, but thanks to work i at least have to work with both anyway.

    mechanical. I've had membranes and i just can't stand them. they're ok in an office if i have to type quietly but if I'm at home its mechanical all the way. the response time is wonderful and you just can't beat that 'tak tak tak'

    Damn, only 33 people who prefer to use membrane. (even partially) I mean, yeah mechanical is superior but hell, I still like membrane every now and then. Figured it would balance out at least a little more.

    Membrane just feels too squishy for me after I started using mechanical keyboards
