Why you need to buy a mechanical keyboard
Mechanical keyboards are more durable and responsive than traditional keyboards. They can come with a variety of switches for different purposes. For example, Cherry MX blue is the best switch for gaming because it provides quick response to key presses. With a mechanical keyboard, you can also program custom keys to your liking!
What is a mechanical keyboard?
Mechanical keyboards are the most common type of keyboard because they use mechanical switches. A mechanical switch has a physical connection between two parts. When you press a key, the switch makes contact with two pieces: one piece is connected to the circuit board, and the other piece is connected to one of the metal contacts that allow electricity to pass through. After touching two parts, a spring will push them back together again, completing the circuit and sending an electrical signal to whatever it is connected to.
What are the most popular types of mechanical keyboards and their key switches?
Mechanical keyboards are the most popular type of keyboard. They have a switch that is under each key that is activated by the movement of your finger. The switches fall into three categories: mechanical, rubber dome, and membrane. Mechanical keyboards are the most durable of these three types and often cost more than other types of keyboard.
How does a mechanical keyboard work?
A mechanical keyboard is a type of keyboard that uses physical buttons and switches to send electronic signals to the computer instead of using electronics inside the computer. This allows for a silent typing experience since there is no key clicking sound. In order for a mechanical keyboard to work, there has to be a combination of switches on both sides of the keyboard. The switches are like individual keys that are pressed individually and sent to the mother board as information.
