I just need to know, when the switch actuated. Otherwise I bottom out so hard, my fingers ache. If I try not to I often miss keypresses. Linear switches are the best for gaming, but tactility is necessary for typing.
But don't get me wrong: I really don't like browns, but they're the better choice if I have to decide between linear switches and Browns for ergonomic typing.
interesting. for me it's the otherway way around.
i tend to bottom out more on the browns, in order to be sure i've hit the activation bump. whereas with reds, since they're so light, i hit it just right and know it's been activated. there if i bottom out, i know i've used too much force. but with browns, it's like two layers: the bump and then the bottom out. the bump then get's more in the way since i'm not sure if the resistence is from the bottom out or the bump. sure there's a difference in the two, but for me, linear feels more consistent.
different strokes for different folks. i wish there was a tactile switch that requires less force as with the reds. maybe i just perfer typing lighter and so the issue is less about tactility, since the brown requires considerably more force.
btw, can someone interpret the meaning of these diagrams? what do the two lines mean? pressure point is the tactile bump?
