Ive had the K90 for about 2 months now. And its a really great KB for playing BF3 and even typing.

Ive been using it now for typing documentation and i have to say, the feeling, pressing down on every single keys is quite enjoyable. I didnt understand what all the fuss is about mechanical KB until i owned one.

There is a noticeable difference.

I thought I had mentioned this previously, but I also do a little bit of Lets' Play-ing, so the loudness of the keys is a consideration as well...

I really like the Steelseries mechanical keyboards and the Mionix Zibal 60. Basically anything with Cherry blacks.

Is there any real difference between tactile and non-tactile switches? e.g. Cherry Browns vs Cherry Reds

Actually, I had meant in the performance of the switches, but I probably should have clarified...

I think I want to go with a keyboard with cherry brown... Is the rosewill RK-9000BR a good keyboard? It has very favorable reviews...

I had the rosewill with red switches. Had the same tactile, loudness that the K90 has (since they have the same switches).

Im sure the brown will serve you good. If thats a problem, you could always buy some o-rings to dampen the noise.
