The most well known mechanical keyboard switch has the recognizable "click" the moment the activation point is hit. Blues are viewed as the best typing switch due to the tactile bump that allows quick movement from key to key, very similar to a classic typewriter.

Transferring over from the land of the rubber domes, I wanted a good introduction to mechanical keyboards to try and learn how to stop bottoming out the keys.
Selecting both an audible and tactile keyboard seemed like the best option, and has turned out better than expected. Definitely a good first buy!
Downsides: Shipping took almost a week after the keyboard was ordered.

I'm coming from an old Microsoft media keyboard 15+ years in use, and finally made the upgrade. I absolutely love this keyboard with the green switches, it is an absolute delight to type on. The only improvements that could be made to this keyboard is if it had some sort of optional wristguard, and if it came with some of the o-rings to test volume levels.

This keyboard feels great. I got the MX Green switches, which still seem a little stiff, but I am getting used to them and absolutely love the way typing feels; clicky and solid.
I only have two tiny complaints:
1) The keyboard is not 100% balanced: the first time I put it on my desk, the bottom left corner was barely touching it. After a couple of minutes, it sat fine, but you can still tell that most of the weight lies on the bottom right corner. I believe it will sit in over time and become perfectly balanced. This is not a problem, as all corners touch the desk and the body does sit solid, but I love this keyboard and would have liked it to be perfect from minute 0.
2) Shipping is not extremely fast -- my order was shipped 3 days after I placed it.
Overall, very satisfied!

Awesome keyboard. Quite a large amount of feedback , both tactile and audible. Quieter than a blue and not quite as sharp. Definitely not squishy.
Rockin' clicky keyboard!

This keyboard is fantastic. It's a full-sized keyboard so it suits my hands nicely, and the keys are absolutely perfect. It's all the best parts of the old IBM clicky keyboards without feeling like you're on an actual mechanical typewriter.
The keyboard is heavy so it does not slide around, and feels very well-made. My friends think I'm wierd for being excited at getting a new keyboard, but I can't shut up about it!
