Top Customer Reviews
The cost performance and the quality are very nice.
I definitely recommend this product for those who are looking for the best compact keyboard.
I am also a Linux user, so even after using it for only a short time, I know this is the perfect keyboard for editing in Vi (a text editor). The two USB ports on it are a real convenience to use other devices. My ONLY gripe with it, is that the USB ports are NOT USB 2.0 compliant, so they will not work with powered devices such as an external CD-ROM drive, or hard drive.
Other than that, the keyboard is really easy to use, and a great investment. I look forward to many years using this keyboard.
NOTE about seller USER SIDE:
I screwed up my first seller feedback, and Amazon won't let you edit seller feedback, so I will leave it here.
I give USER SIDE a 5 out of 5 rating for their fast shipping. Package was estimated to arrive in October, but came about two weeks early. I had an issue with the USB ports, but it turned out to be my own dumb error. Called USER SIDE customer support and they informed me that the dip switches in the keyboard are set to have the USB downstream ports on by default. I messed that up. Service rep was very friendly, and very helpful. I would definitely buy from USER SIDE again when I need another Happy Hacking Keyboard Lite 2. I hope they never stop selling them.
I edit spreadsheets from time to time and use the F2 key, the Home, End and Insert keys. So far using the function key combination for these keys has been great. You do not have to reach as far as you would a more standard keyboard like the M, which I think once I'm used to it will make me faster and more accurate. As other reviewers have pointed out the lower right-hand arrow keys are disappointing on the HHKl2. They are at an angle compared to the rest of the keys and are depressed too far. There are some function key arrow keys however, which may serve better.
All in all I am happy with this purchase.
Great keyboard strongly recommended.
The feel of the keys is among the best of any kbd I've ever used, even those mechanical beasts from the mid to late '70s, AND the control key is in the "proper" place. Furthermore, it reduces use of my laptop kbd - replacing a laptop kbd is more expensive and far more difficult than replacing an HHKB, and the HHKB is significantly cooler (read, "room temp") on my lap. The size and layout (for me) are excellent, as good as it gets.
On the downside, the usb ports could use some update (as noted by another reviewer). Another small problem with the usb ports is that they are narrow, thus preventing insertion of wide thumb drives - a older SanDisk Cruzer Micro is slightly too wide to permit insertion to the point that it will properly make contact. Furthermore, since the kbd attaches via usb, it does not work until usb drivers are loaded and the device mounted; admittedly not a problem for most users. The arrow/cursor keys are a bit smaller and sit lower, but it seems unlikely this would seriously degrade their use. Finally, if you use apps that make use of function keys, esp those above F12, or you use the number pad extensively, it may not be for you (although a usb number pad could be easily added).
As for enhancements (maybe someone at pfuSystems is reading this?), wireless/blue tooth and usb 2 or 3 would be great.
For the hardcore hacker who needs special kbd behavior, they're hackable - search for "Alternative Controller for HHKB". Of course, keys are mappable on both linux and windoze.
I only wish everything I bought worked as well and as reliably as the HHKB.
