I hope the MX clone switches are not carp.(Rolls dice)
I have the compact version of this keyboard for almost a year. I got the brown switches since I didn’t think I wanted the extra noise. Looking back, I should have gone Blue. No matter which you get, I would recommend getting o-rings for it unless you don’t mind extreme noise. Someone who isn’t used to mechanical switches will “tend” to hammer down the keys and the “clack” of the switch/key bottoming out is crazy loud and annoying. O-Rings made a huge improvement until I began to adjust and not hammer down the keys.
If I need to buy another mechanical keyboard, I without a doubt will look at Nixeus again.
