I'd like to get a mechanical keyboard. I'm in the early stages of research and figured I'd see if anyone here has experience with them.

Have any of y'all used one before? Any buying advice?

Arty and Gimp have one. Arty could probably play with a keyboard made of candle wax and beat everyone though so his opinion may be skewed.

I heard they are good for fast responses. But are they worth the cost? , probably not unless you play video games for money. Good old USB keyboard does the trick fine. Older PS/2 can be good two, but are obsolete due to old connectors.

Rather put my money in a better rig then a fancy keyboard.

I use a mechanical keyboard, Arty uses a $10 Logitech basic thing.  He does OK with it.  :)

The Corsair I have feels very durable but I don't notice any performance improvements.  I do like the illuminated keys. One disadvantage is it's loud to type on.

Corsair is the manufacturer I'm primarily considering. I know some switches are louder than others. I'm looking to get one with browns, which don't have the click that blues and some others do. Know what you have, Gimp?

After working the last year or so on some generic logitech keyboard I have to say the mechanical I have at home is so much nicer.  The feel and sensitivity is great and the noise is not much different because you don't have to hit the keys very hard.  I say go for it if you haven't.

I ended up getting the Corsair K70 with browns. Wanted the RGB, but didn't want to pony up the premium for it. Ultimately, I didn't need more pretty lights to love this thing. I could type on it forever.
