I just received my 105 Key Legend Backlit Keyboard (Tactile Keys) - Frost (White). Looks beautiful. I'm a bit taken aback that there isn't that familiar mechanical clicking sound/sensation when typing. Did I order the correct KB for that? Other than that this KB is a beauty. I LOVE the Frost White.

The "mechanical" click is a feature of the Cherry MX blue switches. Frost keyboards use the clear switches which are a tactile w/o the click sound. This was done because at the time many users did not like how much noise the switches made, therefore using the blue switches would have made the problem worse. At this time we have no plans to release a Deck product with the Cherry blue switches.

Thank you for your prompt reply. That's disappointing to hear.
