    Do keyboards with the same keybed/action differ at all in playability?

    Hi, I'm currently trying to find a new keyboard with a good action in the range of around 900€ (+- 200€) and I can honestly say that this is more confusing than my studies. Now for my question: do keyboards have a different feel even if they have the same keybed/action (whatever you call it)...
