It is just rather pointless, just like KDR in games and such.

It's more of things you're familiar with lets you type faster. Typing tests like TypeRacer, TyprX, or whatever you use test your reading too along with typing.

I think if you play piano, MX Black will become more useable. Hmm, seems like a good excuse to pick up piano lessons again, because I want to use my keyboard at home with higher efficiency!

 

I can type "Nyaa" or "Nyan" or "Nya" at 100 WPM.

Is there a point to WPM? I can get around 60 WPM, but how often do I type that fast? Pretty much never, even under pressure to turn in an essay 30 minutes before it's due.

I do play piano. My piano just happens to have a ridiculously low actuation force which I don't like too much but obviously, too high isn't good either. Playing on my piano feels as light as MX Brown, give or take a few grams.

 

My record is 138 WPM with my MX Blue Filco, previous record being 125 WPM with a scissor switch/compact rubber dome keyboard. Both of these were done with TyprX.

It makes me more productive. It's really how fast I think that begins to limit how much work I can get done sometimes.

I utter fails at those reading/typing tests. I just can't copy stuff or simply don't want to copy stuff.

 

I can easily write an essay on something that I am interested in at higher speed than those copying things. Or just pretend I am a cat.

Knowing your WPM makes you more productive? I probably type around 50 WPM on average. I just did a test and got 79 while really trying to strain myself.

 

I'm using a regular scissor-switch keyboard via MacBook Pro by the way. None of your guys' fancy mechanical keyboards...

I know what my limits are, so I have a good idea of what's going to be my bottleneck depending on what I do.

 

I personally like scissor switch keyboards with nice feedback. The shallow travel is nice IMO and bottoming out (basically force upon you because it's a compact rubber dome) gives good feedback. This is why I don't bring anything like a Happy Hacking Keyboard around with me or any other more portable mechanical keyboard of my choice (although people have differing views on Topre whether it's really mechanical or not).

The thing is, if you type faster you can level up your Head-Fi post count faster?

I achieved my record 113wpm on my MBP rather than on my mechanical keyboard. biggrin.gif

 

I was doing it for schiits and giggles during class before it started. And using the same website app(this is important). I beat my previous record.

 

I generally type at about 65 wpm as I am on Head-Fi and anywhere else really.

Unless you spam 1 key and then click the submit button over and over again. Or whatever the minimum character limit is.

Apparently my lazy speed varies a lot, falling between 60 and 90 WPM.

post #75222 of 110847

How do you know how much WPM you are typing on Head-Fi or somewhere else? I sincerely hope no one is sad enough to time a Head-Fi post or Steam IM.

I just did a retest, I'm around 65 on HF

No, I just did my general type on HF and then brought the general typing speed to a app and typed it there and got 64 wpm.

 

For when I really want to get thoughts across, I will sometimes push it up to 85wpm. Rarely do I go ninja 100+ online though.

Going over 100+ wpm on the internet happens too often for me, too often.

To be perfectly honest here, the amount of typing required and the delay of replies, there isn't a real need for a fast typing speed here. At least true on this thread, unless you are typing with 1 finger per hand.
