About the types of mechanical key switches

linear

red

There are many light shafts with a quiet and smooth feel without a click feeling. Ideal for use in quiet environments

Tactile

brown

Tactile feedback is returned at the keyed location. You can feel whether it was input by touch.

Clickey

blue

Feedback is returned by touch and sound at the place where the key is input. Since you can tell whether or not the input was made by touch and sound, the blue axis is most likely to prevent erroneous input. If you like the sound of key input, the blue axis is recommended. Not suitable for quiet environments as it produces sound

Silent

Recommended for those who do not want to make a click sound, or use it in a quiet place with a quiet axis.
