the force required to actuate the keys is a bit much for gaming and can be fatiguing for gaming, especially anything competitive, they take a long time to register repetitive keystrokes on a single key. typing is as perfect as it gets, the fatigue that you get from gaming with this keyboard does not happen at all when just typing, if anything this switch makes it easier to type for long periods wi

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