The Cherry MX Green is both a tactile and a clicky switch. You can both feel the tactile bump and hear the "click" that occurs when the activation point is hit. Due to the actuation force needed (80 cN), the switch feels similar to a buckling spring (which takes about 90 cN force to actuate). When pressing on the key (the slower you press, the more you can feel it) the user can easily notice the switch pushing against your fingers. Users who are used to lighter switches may have trouble at first getting used to the feel of Green switches, as they are a stiff switch.
