HHKB Pro 1 VS Pro 2
HHKB Pro 1 VS Pro 2
So is there any difference between HHKB Pro 1 and Pro 2. The only difference there really is the USB hubs being added to the pro 2. But that doesn't make the Pro 1 useless or bad in any way since there is a saying that Topre ages like fine wine. The domes in a Topre get stiffer as the time goes on and the HHKB pro 1 has been released in 24-04-2003. That means that some HHKB Pro 1's are more than 16 Years old.
Effect of domes getting stiffer
When the domes get stiffer that will result in a heavier weight and more tactile feeling that most people prefer. It gets closer to a 55G Topre keyboard with more tactility based on my HHKB Pro 1 that has been produced in 2003-05.
Both options are a good choice. It all depends on what you want. As a user that has used the Pro 1 and Pro 2, I would recommend the HHKB Pro 2 since it is readily available and easy to get on second hand markets but if you can find a Pro 1 for a good price I would go for it. Under here you can read the cons and the goods to help you with your decision.
