They say in the fashion industry that what is old becomes new again. Mechanical switch keyboards were some of the first introduced to the PC market and were popularised by IBM back in the 1980s. When clone systems became all the rage, many manufacturers switched to the more cost effective rubber dome manufacturing process which remains commonplace today. Whilst cheaper to produce, rubber dome keyboards left many longing for the longevity and 'feel' of the older mechanical keyboard types. However, aside from retro cool, there are a number of technical reasons as to why a mechanical keyboard is still desirable today.
Mechanical switches are some of the most durable switches you'll find on a keyboard and their feel does not change much as they are used. Thus, a key pressed 2000 times will feel vey similar to a key pressed 20,000 times! Another major advantage is key response. With mechanical switch keys, you don't have to press them down all the way, as they actuate somewhere in the middle of their travel, which is perfect for any power user whose fingers dart across the keyboard.
