Well, great. I was having a hard enough time trying to choose between Reds and Browns, now I need to worry about Silvers, too. There is such a thing as too much choice, keyboard manufacturers.

One of my co-workers brought one of these to work...

I hate the thing, they should name it the world's most annoying keyboard...
They're not that much louder than an aggressive typist on a membrane keyboard, why the hate? Unless they brought in an MX blue keyboard, which is about the same as a model m, they're not that loud. If you don't like the volume of keyboards, you would have hated the old days in offices where everyone had buckling springs or typewriters.

If you're debating Brown vs. Red, these Speed switches don't need to be part of the equation. Speeds are Reds with shorter travel, basically. Many people are already on the fence about Reds for typing...Speeds will be worse.

Lots of folks like Browns as a compromise, because they're dandy for gaming but have a little tactility that many people prefer. If you're at a keyboard all day for work and don't plan to buy a second one specifically for gaming, I'd personally go Brown.

I second brown as well ( though readily recognize it's completely personal preference ). I don't like the noise of blues ( I don't want to risk waking the family when gaming at night ), nor the different heights between activation and reset. I like the slight tactile bump of the browns. If I wanted linear, non-tactile switches, I think I'd prefer blacks over reds ( 65g vs 45g force ).

"Also note that although the K70 ($129.99) and K70 RGB ($169.99) come in at the same price as their K70 and K70 RGB counterparts"

Something's wrong here.

No, the price for Grey VS Red/Blue/Brown are the same, whereas on the K65 the greys are less expensive

Typewriters are definitely much larger than mechanical keyboards. Even a Cherry MX Blue has less noise compared to a typewriter. Try working in a room full of people with typewriters. But back then that was how it was in some large offices, and I think they got by that pretty well.
