Pro Soft tactile feedback
Pro Not clicky
While clicky switches (Blue, Green) provide audible feedback, they can be loud and distracting to others. Brown switches don't have any click, but still make a bit of sound because of the slight tactile bump.
Pro Soft pressure point
A lighter pressure point means that you don't need to hit the keys as hard for it to register. For Brown switches, you can lightly tap the key and it will register, while other switches require more force.
