From what I've read Colemak seems superior to Dvorak. The switch from Qwerty to Colemak is supposed to be easier too.

Well right now I max out at about 60wpm, but that is typing as fast as I can with errors. Without lots of errors it is more like 50. It seems to me even if I did practice/train more it would be difficult to get significantly faster just because qwerty requires so much finger movement.

I might give colemak a try.

Just out of curiosity, which do you use?

I use qwerty, but I average around 110WPM with spikes up to 170WPM. So yes it's very possible to get faster. It's actually more about training your brain than reaching the limit of how fast you can move your fingers.

The biggest thing that helps is for you to try planning your typing several keys ahead of where you actually are. Like if you're typing the word "phase", you should start moving your right pointer finger to the letter 'h' even before you've hit 'p'. And the same with the letter 'e'.

Just got my i-one Scorpius M10. It's really nice so far. After I used the DAS Professional, I knew I had to pick up a mechanical keyboard. This was the cheapest one I could find with Cherry Blues and it's awesome. My sister loves it too haha.

ETA on "Otaku" Filco browns is late spring. I remember a few people wanting these. As you may know they're a special item that Filco does not normally make.

I like this one better than my Das. doesn't have the transposition problem, the LED use a reflector and it cost less than half.

Yeah, I'm really glad I bought it. Everyone who used it so far has praised it. I like the texture of the keys better than the Das, and I think the keys are slightly stiffer as well. It was totally worth every penny.

Steelseries 7g here. I saw one and only one negative review on the thing. Someone said the keys fall off after a few months. Anyone know if there is truth to this rumor?
