Mechanical keyboard is making a come back. Many people are now switching from their regular membrane keyboard to mechanical ones. This trend have been going on for a while, but for the last two years it has skyrocket. There are now many mechanical keyboard review sites compared to couple of years ago signaling the increase interest for it.
This is definitely good news, especially for those of you who are still a novice in this niche. With this upward swing there will be much more information available about the subject. You can now read and find different reviews about mechanical keyboards which will be useful when you decide to buy one.
With more people jumping on the wagon, there will be more manufacturers. And more manufacturers mean more competition. This can only be a good thing for you as consumers because you will get products which have increase quality with a lower price. As you may know, mechanical keyboards are more expensive than their rubber membrane counterpart. You can get a decent membrane keyboard for $40 while a good mechanical keyboard will cost you at least $80. But with this upward trend, and increasing competition, the price will start to go down.
I believe that this is a trend that will continue to rise. The main reason is because people are starting to notice the overwhelming quality of mechanical keyboard compared to regular keyboard. From the build quality, positive typing experience and the fact that mechanical switch keyboard will last longer, it is a no brainer which type of keyboard to choose for your next purchase.
