Discussion on: Hey programmers, which keyboards do you suggest under $200.

You should go to a store where you can try different switches, as that is the main (but not only) difference between mechanical keyboards. The most common switch brand is Cherry. I prefer their MX Brown switches. They got a tactical actuation point but no added click. In my experience mechanical keyboards sounds a lot without voluntarily adding more.

I got my browns on a rather cheap off-brand board. I selected it for the very compact tenkeyless layout.
