So the main difference is that mechanical keyboards have a spring for every button?

Thing with mechanical keyboards is they are super loud, it's like the 1990s again. If they could make a quiet mechanical keyboard I would be interested, I prefer to not have everyone hear me clacking away when I type. Haha.
They do make quiet ones, but being able to hear exactly when it clicks is one of the larger benefits of them - or maybe they've accomplished that still with the quieter ones. The clicking sound isn't like the ancient beige serial keyboards with the goofy elasto-cord with the very dull but loud sound, but is generally quick and precise, a bit more like a typewriter (but without the loud belt sound.... or maybe that was just mine... Cheesy).

I think the only reason people like these keyboards are for nostalgia purposes. They do sound nice and whenever I use one it does seem to feel more reassuring for some reason, but I think it's just a physiological thing more than anything else.

Well... I would keep using a common one, except that I really want a keyboard that doesn't have ghosting, that would help me a lot.
Using a mechinical one makes too much noise.

I found one of these chunky old style keyboards in my attic the over day. I plugged it in and was surprised to find it still works. The sound they make does feel more reassuring and I seem to be able to type better with them too. They look very retro though, even the modern ones.

They just have a better response rate, even better than ultrapolling USB membrane keyboard.

I have one too, made by CM Storm. Completely different from what I was used to in rubber domes.

What kind of switches would be the best for typing? Really liked the look of the Ducky DK9008P Premier keyboard.  Smiley

If you don't mind switches being loud, pick a Cherry Blue. Otherwise choose a Cherry Brown which are a bit quieter than the blue ones. Browns are also better suited to gaming than Blue Cherrys.

Ducky makes quality keyboards so going with them isn't a bad idea.

Wouldn't really mind the extra noise, but is there also a difference in how hard you have to push down on the key? Brown sounds like a nice middleground perhaps?

Yes, blue switches require a bit more force 50g and peak 60g, while brown switches require 45g and 55g peak force.
Cherry Brown is indeed best overall switch.

Here is a great guide http://www.overclock.net/t/491752/official-mechanical-keyboard-guide

thx for the guide.  Smiley

Wheeew.. That is the "SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY" kind of keyboard. How can they make this kind of stuff? Did they use a 3d printer for this?

When I had my full computer in working-order my DASKeyboard was great. Posted above.

I've bought a mechanical keyboard, but I wouldn't replace it with anything other than a mechanical keyboard.

To OP, nice kb, but still only non-RGB.

Same, after owning a mechanical keyboard for the last couple years I don't see myself every going to back to membrane keys.

Can never go back.

I don't like the double-sound blue keys make per key press. On the other hand, brown keys make a lower pitched singular sound per key press with less force. Mechanical keyboards are awesome! But, they can get loud, unless you've trained yourself to touch-type by not pressing all the way down using the least force possible which you can learn to do with mechanical keyboards!  Wink
