I see the mechanical keyboard being touted as a must get component for any $500 plus build. I just don't get the hype.

Agreed...Other then getting a SSD. I didn't "get" the hype either until I purchased one. Once you type on one you will see what all the hype is about. The keystrokes are just so much more linear and precise. I now have a mechanical keyboard on every Pc I own because I can't stand using a membrane keyboard now.Mechanical keyboards are the best thing I've done to a PC.
Yeah but you completed a sentence without hitting the caps lock!I have recently started using a mech KB and honestly I'm one of those people that Supressor mentioned. The noise gets on my nerves.
Sorry to ask, but is a mechanical keyboard just a KBD with big "keys"?
I have on mine and it does quiet them down a bit, I notice my Cherry browns make most of their noise on the up stroke. Though I will reiterate I basically type by beating the keyboard. So I'm not a very good example!Put o-rings under the keycaps and use either MX Brown/Black/Red keys.
