Looks like it as it notes "Clicky" at the switch type.

Thanks! Will read up on it a bit.. (also should have mentioned I would like to get something with RGB as well, and volume controls would be ideal)

Where did you buy your Unicomp Classic? Did it order it from their website?
nope. It used to be on Amazon.com a couple of years ago (paid $10 shipping + applicable HST) Amazon.com import fees.
RFD is not just about saving money, it's about the thrill of the hunt and getting the stuff I want without paying full price like Joe Shmoe did.
This applies to everyday items as well as high end items that I don't really need.

I guarantee you if you are in the meeting with someone no matter how quiet you try to type they will still hear it crystal clear. At night, I promise your wife/partner will get angry at you and tell you to throw it away the next day.

If you are looking for a quiet switch then I would suggest either brown or red, but red can take some time to get used to its linear feedback.

If you are new to mech keys and want a quiet keyboard, you should skip all the blue switch no matter how cheap they are. Don't end up buying them because of the sale and then later become frustrated and return it.
I have blue switches and when speaking online its barely noticeable if you use noise cancellation.

So you're telling me you need another good quality noise cancellation headphone just to accommodate your new $40 mech keyboard ? How about other people around you? Do they also need to wear noise cancellation headphones when you are typing? LOL.

It uses an opto-mechanical Razer switch that is Razer specific, but is a bit clicky. Nothing quite as loud as a Cherry MX Blue or blue clone, but still more clicky than a brown or red switch.

Clearly! Everyone should be running some Bose QC15 or comparable active noise cancelling headset/earbuds! Obviously it's the fault of the people listening to the keyboard and not the person(s) using it. :P

I've lubed my stabs, foamed my case, and filmed my switches.

All I hear while typing now is a satisfying muffled 'thock'

Your son is not a second class citizen. Please get him at least a new k68 which is $100. The best news is I have ordered but amazon back ordered. Nothing you can do?

Still rocking my CM storm Quickfire rapid TKL from 2012. It was made by costar, same OEM as Filco and it's a beast. Only $50 back then, though it came with ABS keycaps that have worn smooth by now.
Mine from 2011 I think not sure looks good. Only thing is the ps2 adapter broken when I switched computer. So lost the nkro.....

I think it's a custom razer design. I've got one and the key strokes feel very light. If you're one of those people who likes to finger hammer the keyboard it lets you do it with a satisfying slam when the key bottoms out. The clicks are pretty loud. I use it for work and (subjectively) I think its increased my typing accuracy.

He's 19 and just spent over 2k of his money on parts and monitor. We will consider the k68 for the extra $50 vs Redragon. Thank you. Cheers!

so is this louder than the red switch keyboard but quieter than the blue switch? And it can be as loud as the blue switch if you slam the key. Is my understanding correct?

No I meant that most headsets and even software such as discord use noise cancelling software to cancel out background noise from your mic so that OTHERS won't hear your keyboard.

In the end I went ahead and bought a Ducky One2 https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B07BDN ... UTF8&psc=1

Probably more than i wanted to spend on a keyboard, hopefully I should be able to end up close to even when I sell the Logitech Craft I have
You won't be disappointed with that keyboard.
I have my Ducky Shine for I lost count how many years and it still looks and works like it's brand new. The double shot keycaps feel very nice to type on and doesn't collect finger oils that make the keycaps shiny.
These things are built like tanks!
