In for the extra stocks... I know I don't need it with mx brown and mx blue keyboards at home already, but still, it's too tempting!

I've said this to other people about Topre switches, but the comparison to MX Browns or Blues isn't all that great. Some people might say they're like a Cherry MX Brown but that's still not a good comparison to how they feel. Unlike a Brown, which has it's tactility towards the middle of the key press (and all Cherry MX switches in general), Topre switches have that tactility near the top of the press, and once you press past this tactile point the switch will activate and the rest of the key press will be smooth until it bottoms out. It isn't "just like an MX Brown or Blue", which is another reason why some people are hesitant to try Topre because no one wants to spend $230+ on a keyboard only to find out they don't like the switch and can't return it.

Yeah, my co-worker have a Topre keyboard he's using at work, I've been tapping on his keys to test it out, it's definitely way different than mxbrown and mxblues. But not just the switches themselves though, the keys caps are good quality too, made with key sublimation tech. This guy should last at least 10 years+ for sure even on heavy use.

I spend way too many late nights just reading about stuff, in this case keyboards. :v I also have a HHKB so I know what Topre's are like already.
