Membrane vs Mechanical Keyboard
Unlike the standard membrane keyboards with rubber domes that need to be pressed all the way down for the button to be registered, mechanical keyboards have specific switches which allow for quicker actuation, among other things.
However, some mechanical keyboards require lesser actuation force for the key to being pressed which can make gaming more responsive but also cause you to frequently misspell when typing quickly.

There are many different mechanical keyboard switches and manufacturers, so we’ll break down the most popular ones.
