New Mechanical Keyboard

Post by luktur » Wed Aug 07, 2019 5:14 pm

Hello Everyone!

Today I bought new keyboard! It's mechanical keyboard... I never had any mechanical keyboard in my life. I tried to type on - feel very comfy, but I'm typing little bit slower now. I usually type between 80-90, with mechanical keyboard 72-80 but I'm still making many mistakes. So how long does it usually take to get used to mechanical keyboard?

Thank You!

Hello luktur,

It can range from a few hours to several weeks. It depends on the keyboard you had before, the switches you have chosen, your adaptability and the time you spend on it.

It would take some time to get used to the keyboard.

I actually find alternating between a couple of different boards with different switch types helps my speed. I dunno why, maybe it's so your muscle memory and brain kind of resets moving from one to another. I think you just have to get used to anything you use.

For me, it seemed to take a lot of time for my Corsair K63 keyboard. I have had a lot of fun with it ever since although it is a bit too light on my fingers.

Yes, i am Bitbatgaming, but i am more mature and have taken a different username.

My goal is to hit 130 wpm average typing advanced words but thats probably not going to happen.
