I think that's a good question because I just recently changed a setting in my Registry for MouseHoverTime. I used to keep it at 0ms, but I grew tired of the instant opening of Jump Lists in the Start Menu (where the frequently-opened programs populate) and also any Jump Lists of items that are Pinned to the Start Menu. So, I experimented by increasing it to 20ms. That was better. It had a slight delay and was just enough so that I could slide my mouse cursor right over an item in the Start Menu that has a Jump List and it wouldn't open the list. However, I still wanted a longer delay, so I increased it a little more.
My point though is that, I noticed a delay at 20ms. When I type though, I have a much shorter delay than what I felt when I touched the item in the Start Menu that has a Jump List. My guess would be 5 or 10ms. Now, someone might be like, "that's because you have a good mechanical keyboard connected via PS/2". No, that's not it. How do I know? Because my previous keyboard was a cheap generic-like membrane keyboard and I never said anything when I upgraded like, "Wow, and there's a shorter delay too". So, how bad does a keyboard have to be to have a 20ms delay? lol
Anyway, setting all this aside, I would still want this keyboard for its build quality and its beauty.
