I like the intro, I'll copy you, Alex, if you don't mind.
As a small kid there were all kinds of devices that I loved playing with. As soon as I figured out how to use a screwdriver, I had to open anything that had screws on it. Unfortunately, there wasn't a mechanical keyboard around.
Not until I found Massdrop, some 20 years down the line. After so much typing on a "plain" keyboard, I discovered a group of people interested in mechanical keyboards and I joined one of the drops for a Cooler Master switch tester. That was my first experience with any mechanical keyboard.
My first experience with a functioning mech keyboard was two days ago. After a lot of planning and budgeting (I'm building my first pc as well), I am the proud owner of a Cooler Master Masterkeys Pros S. Brown switches. I'm still getting used to typing on it and trying really, really hard not to bottom out (and not to open it up with a screwdriver, not yet). I'll get there eventually. And I know I'll get a pok3r and a Realforce in the not too distant future. Gotta try them all.
