Ordered one with Browns on Amazon and got it in last night. I'll play with it some and report back later in the weekend. Have a paper to write so I'll get some good use out of it. It's my first mech so don't know how relevant it'll be to some people. Chance I may send it back and get one with blues.
Edit: Didn't actually end up having to write the paper like I thought so I'll just go off what I have so far. I'm not used to having friction when I'm typing, so that's one thing that I've had to get over so far. I will say that the feeling of browns is nice though and the sound of typing is quite satisfying. No click like blues, but the clack of the keyboard is nice. I feel like I'm definitely going to have to get a wrist rest for this. It's not super comfortable typing when the keys are elevated as much as they are and your wrists are just on the desk. Something to consider as an add on in the future Nixeus. I'd love to see some backlighting down the road but I'm fine without it. This is a nice cheap way to get into mech keyboards and eventually, once I upgrade, I'll probably end up bringing it to work and using it as an office keyboard. I'm looking forward to modding it some. I'll probably get some custom keycaps and might spray paint the aluminum plate. It seems solidly built and not cheap feeling. Another thing to consider might be to add a function lock. It would be nice to use the multi media keys without having to hold down the function key every time. Something along the lines of how the Microsoft Surface Type Cover is. Overall, I'm happy with it and for $50 plus shipping ($8.75 for US), I think it's a solid deal.
