    Most modern keyboards use rubber-dome keys that lack the responsiveness and tactility of mechanical keyboards. Mechanical keyboards are louder and heavier, but they are also more durable than rubber-dome keyboards. In addition, they give you better control since you physically depress a switch with each keystroke rather than pressing each key all the way down on a rubber-dome keyboard. Many gamers prefer mechanical keyboards for their responsiveness and the satisfying feeling of the louder keys. Some mechanical keyboards may be backlit with LEDs, allowing you to program the colors for an easy visual aid and an overall flashy look.
