I’m buying my first mech keyboard, so I ordered a Cherry MX switch tester to see which switches I’d like. I thought Clears and Blues would be my favorite. I ended up not liking the Clears (I’d like to have a much sharper tactility). The Blue seems good except for one thing. When the key is going back up it seems like it’s going to stick, as if the spring is almost not strong enough to push it back up over the bump. It never actually sticks, but If I rest my finger on the key even very lightly after pressing it it won’t reset.
I’ve done some Googling, but I’ve only found reports of this happening on Kailh BOX Jades, not MX Blues. I also have a Kailh BOX switch tester, and I don’t get a similar feeling on the Jade, it feels like it has a stronger spring than the MX Blue.
Is this normal behaviour for MX Blue switches or did I get a dud switch in my tester?
I wonder if I should I just be looking for keyboards with MX Greens instead. I like the feel of the MX Green but I’m worried typing on them might be fatiguing on my fingers, and they’re also not as easy to find in stock boards as MX Blues.
