    I’ve only ever experienced mechanical keyboards that belong to others, as I’ve never been able to afford one of my own, but I love the tactile response from them, as well as the awesome sound and ease of key change.

    Mechanical keyboards are great! They are durable and comfortable to type on. Also, on a mechanical keyboard you type over 9,000 times faster.

  • Kyle

    Rigidity and in the case of my MX Blues, the sound. Oh lord the sound is so good.

  • Spencer Walton

    Build quality and tactile feedback, for sure

    Best aspect of a good mechanical keyboard is the way it feels. The tactile feedback and the gorgeous sound makes it great fun to type on.

  • psikeiro

    The feedback, the smoothness, the clickiness, the subtle off-black/white/red/brown/pink/purple color.

  • My blues at work have really relieved wrist pain. I think it’s the longer key actuation.

  • Cassie

    Agree with apb2390 the sound of the keys, the feeling of them moving under my fingers, etc

    The click

  • criminology

    I like the sound and feeling of using a mechanical keyboard. I also like that it’s a relatively niche (but growing) industry, so the manufacturers and vendors are focused on quality and customer service. Case in point: running contests like this!

  • Fluxr

    The unmatched tactile response and indescribable superiority to rubber dome, of which I have not personally yet owned, but have messed with at work constantly.

  • Ian Anderson

    Besides overall build quality, which could be had with a membrane keyboard, it is the general pleasant feeling that I get whenever I go back to typing on one from a membrane or scissor switch keyboard. It is really hard to describe, but it is some combination of increased comfort, the tactile feedback, and the more natural typing movements my hands make that all come together to make the experience of typing on a well made mechanical keyboard unlike anything else, and truly the best way to interact with a computer.

  • Chris
