Thanks, good job on a tough type of review. I'd like to read more about the types of switches, since the durability of a mechanical keyboard is a strong selling point. I could see it being important to know a bit about switches before buying.

Are there mechanical keyboard switches that are short throw and as quiet as domes? I guess this would be the type I'd be most interested in.

Speaking of longevity, that's part of what makes reviewing keyboards so difficult: there's such a variance in durability, esp. for hardcore gaming. Once you find a keyboard you like, how long it will last is high up on the list. By the time the concensus is "that's a great product," it's usually off the market. This makes knowing about switches even more important.
