I can... usually get six keys but it's kind of finicky about which keys I'm holding when I press other ones and whether I press them at the same time or with a slight delay. I voted 5 in the poll because there are quite a few six-key combinations that don't work. When I press all eight at once, none of them are registered until I let go of some.

Razer BlackWidow, basic model, a few years old.

The very lowest I can do is 2 at times. Which sucks when trying to play maps that require 3 notes.

I can hit 7 fine.

I DID have to move my config over a bit though to accommodate 7. Originally I tried SDF space JKL but L caused ghosting, so I moved it to HJK and things have been fine since.

6 here. Would be 8 if I had a PS/2 connection port on my laptop.

I can range from 2 to like 11 depending on the keys and what keyboard I'm using. With default controls I can press any combo of 3 keys but certain 4-key combos don't work.

So, I really have no idea what to put down on the poll. I do have a working 8K set-up, though.

Normally 7, but I can go up to 8 with a different key config.
Same with me. In fact, some jams result in zero keys held down (but that's not an option in the poll). Which means that it doesn't matter if there is a limit for rankabliltiy, if there's any chording in an 8K map using the far right key, it's likely problematic with my current setup. If I could define different keysets for different Kmods I'd be able to do 8 easily. Or if I could move the columns around with skinning so the far right one was in the middle (basically, if I could use the 5th/center key definition instead of the 9th key on the wings)... that would give me options for an 8th key that would work.

8+ when I using the laptop keyboard, but it's crappy for mania-kind games.

6 for my USB keyboard. yeah, that's why it's 6 I suppose.

Tested with http://www.microsoft.com/appliedsciences/content/projects/KeyboardGhostingDemo.aspx

Sony VAIO VGN-CR11GH laptop keyboard - 8 (with adjusted settings: LeftShift, S, D, F, Space, J, K, and L. Because if other keys are used, it may cause ghosting)

I might test with more keyboards later.

Both my desktop and macbook keyboards only support 6 keys at a time, but I'm planning to get a mechanical keyboard sometime.

Mechanical keyboard dont necessary will mean you can press more than 6 buttons. Please make sure before you buy it, maybe testing or ask some others with the same keyboard if they can press 8 buttons. Because those keyboards are pretty pricey and it would be sad if you buy it and then still cant press how many keys you want.

My KB can press 8+ http://puu.sh/24ZYd

Can do all 8.

If I continue to test (outside osu!) I can hold any 21 keys + modifiers.
