My max single finger speed is 110 and I'm using black switches guess I'm just weak and useless \:D/

sucks to live in finland where the only choices for switches are blue and black. Unless you want to order from another country for over 100€ ":D"

my index is about 130-140 1/4 and middle finger can go up to 155 1/4
But since i can't really start a stream with my middle finger i'm stuck singling with my index (Unless it's a pure 280-300 1/2 map then i can go full out with my middle finger)
And mech boards are the best for single tap.

Singling is for weaklings, just alternate between every note like a boss :D Thinking about buying a Black Widow myself since it's the OTHER mech keyboard that you can buy in Finland just so I'd have them both.

But I need some info from players who use blue switches and any info on if it's better than using black switches, at least it should be lighter but it's not linear ;_;

I purchased a blackwidow just for osu!, I don't regret it in the slightest.
As it is a mechanical keyboard, the keys may be pushed down without the need of much force, not to mention it lasts alot longer than other keyboards.

I bought a BlackWidow some weeks ago and I think I should have bought a Filco Majestouch (Cherry black), it just doesn't feel fast enough :/
Oh and am I the only one who is constantly cleaning the damn fingerprints?!

EDIT: BTW I'm always changing the keyboard position in the desk to get a bigger BPM.

Changing the keyboard position how? Like farther back or closer to you o-o? I always adjust my keyboard xD I sort of get like obsessed over little things :3 I'm a perfectionist lol. It bugs me.
***Also is the cherry black the switch for that Filco? (I'm very new to these so I dont know anything) but is cherry black (if thats a switch) good for osu!?***

Razer blackwidow uses their own switches. Orange is for silent and Green is for the original one. I have in in the green switch one so ye. Are tablets good? i dun has 1

I also bought the Black Widdow a few months ago and I'm very satisfied with it. It helped me to improve my Stream spead and accuracy and apart from that its very good for typing and other games(good Software for macros, etc). My only concern would be that the Keycap prints wear out a bit after some time.

Here is a very nice Guide for mechanical keybords including details on all the switch types. However its very long :roll:
My TL;DR Version here:

required actuation force
black = 60 grams
white = 55 grams
blue = 50 grams
brown = 45 grams
reds = 45 grams

I think for Osu! you should get the lightest switches you can find. I've tried blacks and blues and the latter felt way better.
To put it simple: lighter--->faster--->win.

I'd really love to try reds but on the other hand I don't feel like paying 150+50 € shipment to import a 30€-Keyboard from China which was actually produced in Germany, 50 km away from my place to be precisely oO.

Note that there are other differences between the switch types apart from that, but I don't think that matters much for Osu! and is more important for typing and other games. Just check the link for that.
Aren't browns 55 grams?
