    Playing around with my new keyboard, thought this might make for a fun thread. A benchmark of a different kind:

    https://monkeytype.com/

    Post your WPM and accuracy (screenshot if you like) on the default 30s test. Let us know your keyboard setup too.

    To start us off:

    117 / 93 - old daskeyboard Model S professional
    110 / 93 - new daskeyboard 4 professional

    Got to get my accuracy up..

    edit: 119 / 97 on new keyboard trying lighter keypresses, trying for more accuracy by going a little slower:

    Oh boy. Harder than it sounds.

    102 / 92 on a cheapo iKBC F104 with cherry browns.
    122 / 96 on a "repeated" test.

    I seee...

    Logitech G915 Lightspeed Tactile for me. I reckon I could go a little faster, but not by much. I may have shared this with a few friends so will be interesting to see what comes back.

    Seems we're pretty consistent around here.... typed on not my best typing keyboard (HH60 with POM plate and 60 gram linears) and it's cold in my office. I reckon I could do 140 with a bit of a warm up on my keyboard with tactiles....

    I thought I could type, I have nothing on you lot!
    This was my second go, first time around I started it then started typing a few seconds later, got 84wpm with 96% accuracy, this turn I got 98wpm 99% accuracy.
    I need to practice...
    upload_2022-7-3_19-39-18.png
    I even deleted a correct letter and typed it again (that was the first x there)

    I'm using a Mistel Barocco 770 split board.

    Do the rest of you also feel like you're faster when you're just typing something e.g. chat or a post or documentation straight from your head vs reading and repeating something like in the typing tests?

    EDIT:
    I've just realised that the > button is next test, vs the refresh which gives you the same words again.
    So here's a non repeated entry, which was maybe my 5th go.
    At least I'm consistent with a reasonable speed.

    I definitely think the reading part slows me down a bit, as opposed to typing during an interview for example where I am typing what I am hearing/saying. Plus the fact it's random words without context rather than an actual sentence means skimreading doesn't work fully.

    Agreed Agg.
    Not that I'm actually typing what people say that often, definitely can't keep up with that, but I wonder if we'd get higher scores if the test was not random words.

    I'm still in awe of you lot hitting 120wpm, it feels unattainable from here even though I know it's just practice.

    Keydous NJ80 with Zealious V1 Reduxes on a steel plate

    In between typing methods at the moment, noticed a month or two ago that I don't use my ring or pinky finger on my right hand side at all so have been trying to fix that. Previously was hitting 140~ and now working my way back up from 60-70.

    Definitely faster if it is going straight from my head, with the monkeytype tests I manage to read a word or two ahead so can kind of keep up pace depending on the word jumble. I lose around 20-30wpm on the quote setting with the added capitalisation and punctuation.

    Couldn't be bothered with a screenshot...
    WPM - 72
    ACC - 97%

    Just started using SA keycaps so still getting used to it. Usually type around the 90wpm speed.

    First go and I'm happy with that, my keyboard and desk aren't setup for long sessions typing on a regular basis, some members here might say that's a good thing ;):lol:

    Was a little confused by the failure-blanking method which cost me a moment in there, not too unhappy really.

    On my Mac laptop keyboard. Edit: Tried a Ducky mechanical keyboard, much the same result.

    That was fun. Akko 3098B I just bought recently, Jelly White (linear).

    Guess this puts me pretty firmly in the OCAU average club!

    First crack, Keychron C2 with Gateron Brown switches and an an AliExpress XDA profile keycap.

    XDA keycaps are interesting profile compared to the usual. I find myself just clipping the edge of adjacent keys a bit more, although concentrating on reading slowed me down a bit as others have said so accuracy was ok I guess.

    Would be interesting to see how people go across different keyboards.

    It does make me wonder what I'd get if I wasn't still a 3-finger typist. :) Index on my left, index and middle on my right, and right thumb for space.

    Might need to ask my mum at some point why she taught me touch typing on a Panasonic typewriter when I was 6. As a parent of two now and casting my mind back to the 90s, it doesn't seem like a logical thing to have taught your kids.

    Not to brag but I feel there's easily 6-8wpm I could find if I practice abit and willing to make a mistake or two. But still nothing compared to those competition typists.
