For sale is a new HHKB (Happy Hacking Keyboard) Professional 2 matte black, blank, perfect condition USB keyboard. It is suitable for use with Windows, Mac OS and Linux.

If you're reading this advert then I expect you will already know a lot about this very special keyboard.

I received this keyboard as a gift at Christmas. It was purchased just before Christmas in Japan. As you probably already know, this keyboard is only manufactured in Japan and is very hard to get hold of. I used it for a few brief programming periods since then to see how I got on with it. I found that I was quickly able to adjust to using the keyboard despite it having no letters, numbers or symbols printed on the keys, but then I am a developer/programmer and don't need to look at the keyboard to type anyway. The keyboard is for sale so that I can free up some cash for another device I'm interested in. 

PFU Systems (division of Fujitsu) obviously spent a lot of time perfecting this keyboard and its key layout - everything on it just feels correctly positioned and the weighting of the keys is just perfect. I remember hearing someone say that typing on this keyboard was like "typing on wet clay bars" as it's so smooth. The switches under the keys produce a very nice soothing sound when pressed and there are many Youtube videos where you can hear this keyboard in action. The board can be raised using the small fold out legs on the bottom of it. There is a sticker on the bottom of the board which explains how you can arrange the pins to modify the functions of certain keys (for setting a Windows key for example). There are also a couple of USB ports on the back of the board so that it can be used as a USB hub.

The keyboard comes with everything that is supplied when you buy it in Japan - USB cord (decent length), box, instruction manual, plastic wrapping, bubble wrap and the keyboard itself.

The postage costs are set fairly high (£10) as I want to make sure this item is protected well and sent via recorded/insured/special delivery.

Whether you're interested in this keyboard for its rarity, switch feel, style or sound, you won't be disappointed. As far as I'm concerned this is the best keyboard in the world. Happy bidding!
