I like Cherry MX reds, for gaming and typing (I type about 10-15WPM faster with reds versus a good membrane keyboard.
Greens and Clears are just as old as Blues.

Blacks all the way for me, after trying all of them. Currently on a Storm Trigger.

I've had blacks, reds, browns, greens, and blues, on various different keycap types. Reds, Blacks, and Blues have been on Filco boards. Browns on a Choc Mini, and Greens on a Ducky. Keycaps used on the boards varied, as I wasn't necessarily using the stock keycaps.

My preferences have settled on:

Keycap type - PBT

Switch type:

Red - All around/gaming
Green - Typing/work

My actual keyboards:

Filco Majestouch-2 Tenkeyless Red with KBC PBT etched keycaps.
Ducky DK9008G2 with Laser engraved PBT keycaps.

I'm pretty happy and have no urge to try any others. I've always been curious about Topres, but not enough to actually spend the money on one.
