It is very much like playing a game.

EDIT: 4th attempt 75 wpm with 0 errors.

I did once have a job as a secretary/word processor. But I must say I'm impressed with the folks who got better than 100wpm! Are you using the Dvorak keyboard?

This is my average typing speed:



The keyboard layout I use is called the SweCode layout, it's based off of the Swedish QWERTY layout but more oriented towards computer programmers. You can check it out here: http://kristofferjansson.com/swecode/

Keyboard enthusiast rant coming up! Continue reading if you wish to see how I got this typing speed.

I took this test using the IBM Model M keyboard, which uses mechanical Buckling Spring switches. Your first impression may be that this keyboard is an old pile of crap, though the switches they come with are amazing for typing. Most of the keyboards I own use mechanical switches, and if you want to improve your typing speed I would highly recommend getting a mechanical keyboard.

There are many different switches to choose from. Buckling Spring switches provide tactile feedback which is good for typists. The tactile feedback usually acts as a 'notification' to not bottom out on your keystrokes while providing an audible 'click'. The Buckling Spring switches in specific require 75 grams of force to actuate, so these switches aren't really fit for a light-handed typist.

If you are more of a gamer than a typist I would recommend getting a keyboard with linear switches, which have no tactile feedback. The common complaint with these switches is that you don't know when to not bottom out, though there are many modifications you can get such as O-Rings to stop that. O-Rings also dampen the sound as well, as mechanical keyboards are quite noisy!

Many programmers like the Cherry MX Blue switches, which are lighter than buckling springs and provide tactile feedback. They require 55-60 grams of force to actuate, just note that these switches are quite loud and aren't recommended for office use. If you want something a bit heavier I would recommend Cherry MX Green switches, which are a bit rare but heavier than Cherry MX Blues, and they require 80 grams of force to actuate (note that Buckling Springs require 75 grams of force to actuate). Programmers aside, many gamers tend to prefer the Cherry MX Red and/or Cherry MX Black switches, which are both linear. The only difference between Cherry MX Red and Cherry MX Black switches is that Cherry MX Red switches require 45 grams of force to actuate while Cherry MX Black switches require 60 grams of force to actuate.

Here are a few demonstrations to show the difference between tactile and linear switches.

Cherry MX Blues (Tactile):


Cherry MX Reds (Linear):


The tactile feedback isn't perfectly demonstrated in the first image, but hopefully you get the basic idea.

If you want to hear the sounds of certain mechanical keyboards & switches, I would highly recommend going here: http://www.mrinterface.com/

And if you still haven't made up your mind of what switches to get I would recommend getting a switch tester, you can buy one of those here: http://www.cmstore-usa.com/mechanical-key-switch-demo-board/

Hopefully you learned something from my long-ass explanation. Wink

And lastly, just learn touch-typing people. Regardless of if you have a mechanical keyboard or not, your typing speed won't magically go up unless you learn the art of proper typing. That's what will really make you a fast typist.

This site is cool:
http://typeracer.com

I am at about 80wpm.


I just bought a Realforce 87U EK tenkeyless with all 45g keys, just waiting for it to come. I expect to do better on a non-curved layout. I thought this Microsoft Curve Comfort 3000 was more ergonomic, but it's been years and I still miss keys from the curve. The problem is if I lift my hands, the curve messes with my ability to accurately put a finger back down on the right key. The new board is tenkeyless, which means less asymmetrical reaching. I'm almost as excited about that as I am the Japanese Topre switches it has, which have tons of hype among the keyboard aficionados (nerds :p). Topre is a mechanical/rubber dome hybrid, basically a rubber dome with a spring under it. It's designed for a smooth force curve and has a soft bottoming out due to the rubber dome. Here's a chart comparing the Cherry MX, which are said to feel "scratchy" in comparison:



Some pics of the Realforce, which is no-frills and solidly built (switches are plate mounted), with high quality PBT key caps (not all PBT caps are equal!):





The black keys might annoy me. If so I might get some red caps (the other colors are worse) from taobao, just for the A-Z, 1-0, and arrows.

It's funny that you post that, actually. I was recently thinking about ordering a keyboard with Topre switches. Possibly a HHKB II Pro (If I can get the money!)

Hopefully one day I can afford to obtain the 'good feeling of oneness with cup rubber.'

I could never use an HHKB. No dedicated arrow keys, must be out of your gourd! Tongue I needs my nice US ANSI layout.

I am dying waiting for the Realforce. It was shipped 3 days ago from LA, will be a while to get to Croatia. I'll probably have to pay 50% customs taxes, making it even more ridiculously expensive (~$500 USD). But, cloud of boobs! Cheesy
