Keyboard: Cherry MX vs short course?

On all the Internets, here and there, once again, another developer begins to sing an ode to mechanical keyboards, they say "how beautiful they are and how I lived without them before, never going back to the old horror". I'm also of the opinion that the tool should be of high quality: it's like food that can be cooked with a knife, but easier, more comfortable and faster to do it the good knife from good steel sharpened to razor sharpness.


I'm interested in the opinion of the developers, who changed my keyboard to another on the basis of cherry mx key. But not replaced with cheap imitations of conventional long-stroke keys (here all clearly), and navigated from the keyboard with short stroke type of laptop for example, or Apple. I moved to epplovskoy purely because of the short stroke and that alone for me is very convenient, fingers do a much smaller path and typing speed increases. When I sit down at someone's computer with physical keyboard, I have a strong enough discomfort that is due to the long speed — a feeling that the fingers fall long and tedious in some hole, then there must to get. In General there is a feeling that part of the time I spend to press and release the button and my fingers no longer flutter over the keyboard making short and fast clicking, and get stuck in the keyboard.


So the question to "defectors" with a laptop and high-quality short-stroke keyboards, cherry mx'marketing: how do you transition? Does it become easier? Very annoying long travel? Sorry if that was replaced by a short stroke for long, but quality? In General I will be glad to General impression.

I'm not fastidious in the choice of keyboards, used laptop and normal.

I bought a Razer Blackwidow with MX Blue (clicking frenzy). I really like and the course is not very big, I'm always hammering on the keyboard, so and so the finger rests on the bottom.

And the rate was quite high, and have remained, regardless of the "speed keys"
Troubles about working tool — it's all very subjective, here everyone decides for himself he needs it or not, and sometimes it is generally a matter of personal physiology. I here a lot of writing code and emails — so any inconvenience quickly transformirovalsya in fatigue and tension. Since the difference my hands still feel, I would assume that if you continue to ignore discomfort, to the health of the hands it will not. - sasha_Borer commented on October 3rd 19 at 04:10
Well, I also write a lot of code and lengthy text, I mechanical keyboard is very much. Firstly the keyboard is very nice material, so pressing nice. She looks good, which is also a plus. And most importantly — a pleasure to push. I have no fatigue, so that the problems described there.

Are the symptoms of tunnel syndrome, but not sure that is from the keyboard, rather from the mouse. Hands I during operation regularly knead (well, just the fingers prominaetsya often, or the joints of the wrist or hand release/squeeze. It's not a system, just when you think — automatically turns).

I would advise at least to try it, take it back — always have time. Two weeks is enough time to realize you need it or not. - gladyce.Kun commented on October 3rd 19 at 04:13

It is important for you another's opinion or Your own feelings? Will buy and try. I went through 4 is not a cheap keyboard until I realized that I have now no doubt. Periodically in the store fit the "poke" in the exhibits to once again make sure of correctness of the choice. Logitech K750

The key travel is good, worse when hands are used to the normal keyboard (Microsoft Natural, huge curved ergonomic), and her reason was removed from production. I have the whole (or half) the Internet was searched.
