I'd admit at this point of time that i'm apparently the resident keyboard geek and i have a bias towards getting this question reopened, and this is a blatant attempt to get it some attention, and comments arn't large enough for my reasons.
The reason the question was closed was it was 'localised'. I looked for a mechanical keyboard for quite a while, did a lot of research, and ended up with my second choice keyboard (and that research is why i can take two looks at a keyboard and tell what it is).
Its certainly not a niche shopping question but its a question on the characteristics of a particular type of niche hardware, though one that could readily be used day to day. It covers practical potential issues that someone who got a mechanical keyboard may face (as per the FAQ), and covers a general class of hardware, as opposed to a specific type - so it shouldn't be considered localised - see this meta post.
There was obvious homework done - the user had looked into switch types, at least superficially, and had some basic idea of what he was looking at, and what he had at the point of time - i didn't for quite a bit of my computing life.
While there are specialised forums for that sort of thing, even regular power users may decide their keyboard is crap, and consider alternatives - which may be useful.
As such, i feel that closing the question was in error, so if anyone reads this, and agrees, to reopen this question.
