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

  63. Kevin Lee says:

    Overall feeling of typing on each switch

  64. keki says:

    The entire experience. The sound, feel, weight, and look of a high quality keyboard combine to make for a very unique experience.

  141. Ian Anderson says:

    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.
