What is mechanical keyboards and how does it differ from ordinary PC keyboards?

By  Linky Johnson 2019-05-30 1030 0

Mechanical keyboards have a cool look, so they are especially popular with tech homes and game enthusiasts, but mechanical keyboards are more expensive than regular keyboards. So, what is the difference between a more expensive mechanical keyboard and a normal keyboard?

What is the Mechanical Keyboard?

Mechanical keyboard is a type of keyboard. Each key on a mechanical keyboard contains a complete switch underneath. Each switch is composed of a housing, a spring, and a stem. Switches come in three variants: linear with consistent resistance, tactile with a non-audible bump and clicky, a tactile with an audible click. Depending on the resistance of the spring, the key requires different amounts of pressure to actuate. The shape of the stem varies the actuation distance and travel distance of the switch. The amount of sound produced by actuation can also be changed. Mechanical keyboards allow for the removal and replacement of keycaps.

What is the difference between a mechanical keyboard and a normal keyboard?

1. The mechanical keyboard is more responsive. Because the mechanical keyboard has a short trigger keystroke, when you play the game, you have not pressed the button to your skill and put it out, so the mechanical keyboard is more sensitive than the normal keyboard. So when you use the mechanical keyboard to play the game, you can move to the other side to see a wave of operation~

2. The mechanical keyboard can be used for a long time. The service life of the mechanical keyboard can be longer than that of the ordinary keyboard for a long time. It can be said to be particularly durable. Therefore, the mechanical keyboard is more expensive than the ordinary keyboard.

3. The feel of the mechanical keyboard is good! When you use the mechanical keyboard once and then use the ordinary keyboard, you will feel a little uncomfortable. This is the difference between the mechanical keyboard and the ordinary keyboard.

4. The keys of the mechanical keyboard are not fighting. Whenever you need to press a button continuously, there is no conflict between the mechanical keyboards, we can use all the keys together with the mechanical keyboard!

Saying the benefits of a mechanical keyboard is not to prove that the mechanical keyboard has no harm. The downside of the mechanical keyboard is that the button sound is too loud, especially affecting the rest of the people around you!
