Review: Happy Hacking Keyboard Pro 2

December 19, 2018 1 min read

This is a bit of a strange one: a keyboard review on a video game website. Who would have known? But in my time at Destructoid, I have spoken to just as many developers who are fans of the site as I have general readership. They even put us in their games sometimes. And as someone who not only writes a lot myself, but is also a web developer by trade, a good keyboard is essential in my daily workflow. And while I do like some of the more standard mechanical keyboards built for gaming, there is an absolute sea of options out there, some better for games, some better for code, with every ergonomic and mechanical switch variation out there just to make it even more blessedly confusing.

So of course, here is one more: notable by the fact that it has a long reputation among keyboard enthusiasts, not only because it has been around since the late nineties in one variation or another, but also because modders have been doing some insane things to these things over the years, paying a premium to import them from overseas.

Now the Happy Hacking Keyboard by Fujitsu has an official North American release, and I was able to get my hands on the Pro 2 model - the white one with no key labels. After over forty hours with it, I am pleased to share my overall thoughts about this coveted piece of hardware...because what a fat man living in Canada thinks about a keyboard matters so, so much obviously.
