Between Leopold FC660C and the Happy Hacking Keyboard, I think the Leopold is the better keyboard, simply because it has arrow keys and more modifier keys.

What's the difference between FC660C and FC660M?

They looks similar but are two completely different keyboards.

Key layouts are overall the same.
