Default Keyboards: Mechanical, or regular?

So, I have seen many reviews about keyboards, but not too many on mechanical keyboards. Just put in your opinion about what you think. I might buy one, but I want to be persuaded to be sure that they are good.

It pretty much depends on your preferences and what you are using it for. I think mechanicals are pretty nice to have for a causal typing keyboard, but for FFR I cant stand them. If you are looking for a keyboard for playing FFR just get a cheaper "normal" keyboard. There are plenty of cheaper keyboards out there that are equally or better than mechanicals. Mechanicals really dont make a difference in playing, and if you are someone who really prefers slim keys to play on then a mechanical is not the best way to go. If you are a bulky keyboard user then you might as well fork out the cash because it will be a keyboard you are comfortable using plus you will have yourself a nice keyboard for casual use. It all depends on what you are using it for. Like I said before if you are looking for a keyboard to use for FFR just get a cheaper keyboard. There are plenty of really good ones out there, no need to spend a shitton of money on an a mechanical just to play FFR. They arent that amazing lol

Just get regular keyboards. Try looking at these two.

Well I've tried Kensington Slimtype, it's not the most responsive cause when I tried I got BS misses cause my tap is so swift the stroke dosen't register, but Illuminatd is excellent and won't give any BS misses, but I did however switch from the Illuminated to a Mechanical keyboard with blue switches, then to exact same keyboard model with brown switches and that is what I'm using now.

tl;dr From personal experience best non mech kb so far I've tried is the Illuminated, if you're going for a mechanical one and plan on beastin rhytm games I'd go for a kb with cherry mx brown or red.
