What's the difference between mechanical keyboards and normal keyboards?

For most people, keyboards and mice are about the feel and performance. The main difference between a regular and a mechanical keyboard is that mechanical keyboards have a faster reaction time. Mechanical keyboards have mechanical switches, and regular keyboards have a mat under each key. The individual keyboard switches on a mechanical keyboard are powered by springs. They are:

  • More responsive
  • Extra durable
  • Super versatile
  • Sensitive to touch

That makes them a top investment for both gaming and regular use.
