Default Your favorite switches?

What Switches do you prefer and why?

I want to get a keyboard. I have always used blues and everybody is saying brown. It is for my gaming computer

Meka G Unit

Cherry MX Black

Much better than the membrane keyboards I had before.
Have not tried the others much.

My main priority is how they feel for gaming, and red have been the best. I'm not a huge fan of blues for gaming due to the tactile click, and then blacks are just too stiff I find. If I was to get one for purely typing I'd probably go with blue or brown though.

It's a personal thing.

I have played piano and guitar all my life so I beat up my keyboard.... blues for me, and I really want to try blacks.

P.S. The click is pretty damn important when i'm running CG miner at 18 or 19 intensity, making the system much less responsive, and I want to make sure that my commands have been registered. Gaming =/= coding

Browns for me. Blues are too loud. I'd give reds a go for gaming, though.

Brown for work (due to noise for my neighbours) and gaming (almost same trigger/release point)
Blue for work at home

I have a keyboard at work with White switches too, but haven't had a chance to give that a try. It has a stupid international layout so I've been avoiding it.

Having tried but not lived with them I'd go brown or red depending on your preference. (Brown for me) Not tried the clear/white.
