This is my first mechanical keyboard so everything about it is very new to me. I have nothing to compare it to, other than my laptop's keyboard, which is very different. The transition to a mechanical keyboard took getting used to, especially since this is much more raised and clicky. It give me wrist fatigue during long hours of typing, which I'm considering a wrist rest for that. The keycaps look and feel nice and typing has become a bit more satisfying, so my first impression of a mechanical keyboard has been great.
I also don't have a desk pad so it gets quite loud. I don't mind the sound, since it's different for me and a little satisfying. I might end up getting sick of it though. Just make sure the people around you, (in person or in call,) don't hate you for it, unless you're alone.
