Cherry MX Greens, because damn, I sure do love to wake up my neighbours with every keystroke.

I'm using Cherry MX Clears at home and Cherry MX Reds with O-rings in the office so I don't alienate my whole workplace.

My primary keyboard is a Das Keyboard 4C with blank keycaps (though not the
"ultimate" version), a white rabbit esc key, and the lovely Greetech Brown
switches (comparible to Cherry MX Browns) and 4mm o-rings. I also have a few
backup keyboards with Cherry MX Clears. They feel great!

>4mm o-rings

Is that the diameter of the o-ring? 4mm is the stroke length of most switches. How do you type on them?

It's a very narrow travel depth with a tangible feel. Basically once I reach that point that the roll-over feeling happens the key has travelled the whole way and it clicks. It's really nice. As for how the o-ring measurement works I can't say. It's rolled up on the stem a bit so it's not like it lowers the movement by a full 4mm. Hard to describe.

I use MX Cherry Blues on a XyperX Alloy keyboard.

Oooh, that's a nice keyboard. Very satisfying clacky clack!

It is. Need to take it apart and clean the membranes as some keys are double/triple typing, which is rather annoying, to say the least.

mx browns, just because they were on my first mk and I got used to them
