Cherry MX Low Profile Red
- 9 points
- 1 month ago
from completed build mATX build
There are three features on this keyboard that I love but when combined are an issue. 1) I love chiclet style keycaps 2) linear switches are comfortable and smooth 3) low profile switches are fast and exhibit almost no key wobble (much less than standard cherry stems)
However, these three together make for a really difficult typing experience. The low profile switches actuate VERY quickly, and there is no tactile bump to resist the key press before actuating and the chiclet caps are very wide and easy to hit by accident. The result is typo city, just nudging the side of a key lightly with register it. After typing on this keyboard I realized that a low profile chiclet design needs stronger springs and a tactile bump to prevent accident hits.
Cooler master is releasing the SK8** series soon which are supposed to be tactile. I will probably get that to replace this. Because I really like the onboard RGB controls, the look and comfort of the wide key caps
Also, the plastic turns shiny after a while.
