Found on the original Model M mechanical keyboards, buckling spring switches are loud, tactile, and require a high amount of force.

I can't use anything else after being spoiled by the Model M

Feels wrong when gaming, but is pretty great for universal use and has basically perfect typing feel. Only beaten by beamsprings.

The tactile and audible feedback make these a great typing experience. Not well-suited for gaming though. The switches are distracting for gaming in my opinion.
