If you haven't mastered the ability to identify the difference between mechanical keyboard switches then you should check out Scott's primer on the four main flavours of Cherry.  Then you can cheek out a review of Corsair's Vengeance K60 and K90 keyboards at The Tech Report which both utilize the Cherry MX Red variety and are considered a great choice for gamers.  The big difference between the two models is the array of programmable macro keys which exist on the left hand side of the K90 as well as the rubber dampers which are added.  The Tech Report were not impressed with the dampers, they felt it muddied the keystroke and made it feel more like a membrane type keyboard.  Check them both out in the full review.

I'm still addicted to my IBM Enhanced PS/2 Keyboard from like 1987.

And switching from it isn't going to happen soon,
you'll have to pry my buckling spring keyboards from my cold lifeless hands.

Thank the P.T.B. for Unicomp's continued production of the IBM/Lexmark Buckling Spring keyboards.

The one keyboard, that I've used almost exclusively on my main machine since 1987, is getting really really nasty looking, it's got burns, and other various scars, the key-caps are permanently yellowed from years and years of use, but it works.

It works Well.

I have a new Unicomp, but it's just not the same, it's not MY keyboard.

LOL
