If JD on staff catches this thread, he'll shout, "Blue, blue, blue!" - he's a major fan. I'm not, because I don't like the noise that's created with them. On some keyboards, even browns can be overly loud and get some family members upset. If none of that matters to you, and you do in fact enjoy the sound that blues make, I think you'd very much enjoy them.

I think if you're a headphone user, blues would be a non-issue if you are gaming or doing anything, really. But if you only use speakers, the noise might get to you after a while. Only you really can know whether they will likely become a problem or not.

And yes, dampeners like that can help a fair bit, but don't expect the keys to suddenly become totally silent. Still, it'd be a notable improvement for sure.
