Mechanical Keyboard FAQs Frequently asked questions about mechanical keyboards.
What makes Mechanical Keyboards better?
Most common keyboards use cheap rubber dome switches as opposed to Mechanical Keyboards which use high quality mechanical switches. Mechanical switches can vary quite a bit, but most contain individual springs and are consistently higher in quality than rubber dome switches. The keyboard framing, key rollover*, printing / etching, key plastic, PCB board, LED lighting (sharpness and brightness), and a slew of other features are also generally far superior in Mechanical Keyboards.
The key thing to remember is that Mechanical Keyboards just feel better and will make you a more efficient gamer / typist.
