    If you have money and you love RGB: Razer
    silent and fast response time- Yellow switch,
    super fast response time and moderate noisy- Purple switch
    tactile and moderately noisy- Orange switch,
    tactile and noisy- Green switch
    (I prefer blackwidow yellow switch but the shops near my place (one utama shopping centre) super limited stock and pricey ( I am waiting for sale there)

    Limited Budget: Cooler Master
    silent and fast response time- Red switch
    tactile and moderately noisy- Brown switch
    tactile and noisy- Blue switch
    (After Ryzen 7 3700 is released I probably start building my desktop and probably pick coolermaster ck550 as it has a good value to performance)

    Poor: Red Dragon etc
    silent and fast response time- Red switch
    tactile and moderately noisy- Brown switch
    tactile and noisy- Blue switch
    (I tried my friend's Red Dragon tournament keyboard and it is quite satisfying, just no numpad so I don't like it as I use numpad frequently for school calculations and coding)

    PS: I recommend mechanical over membrane keyboard as it has better response time and keypress durability compared to mechanical. Hope it helps!

    You forgot the Razer Purple Switches (Opto-Mechanical) which, in my opinion, is the best one when I tried it out. However, the only product that features it at the moment is the Razer Huntsman lineup.

    I would really love to see more products that feature Razer Opto-Mechanical Switches, or in particular an updated Razer Orbweaver or new Razer Keypad.
