So a dude at work is selling a mechanical keyboard he bought and doesn't like. It's a Filco Ninja with Cherry MX Brown switches.
It's called a Ninja because it has blank keytops and the printing is on the front.
I don't like this particular keyboard because it has no numpad, but I do very much like typing on it. Going back to my regular Dell workstation keyboard feels like typing on a flimsy sponge.
I've seen these online before, at places like http://www.overclock.net/t/491752/mechanical-keyboard-guide but never got the balls up to spend the money on one.
I'm now considering ordering a full size one of these. I'm unsure whether to stick with the Brown switches, or switch to Blacks or Reds, or if it even makes much of a difference.
Do any of you use mechanical keyboards? Which ones? Am I being an elitist keyboard wanker?

My old '89 mechanical keyboard's D key is a little too sensitive, sometimes it does the keypress twice even though I only hit it once. Is this fixable?
If it's a Model M you are referring to, then I would say just pop the key off and see how the spring looks. If it's messed up, I would just swap the spring with a near-unused key like Scroll lock or something.
