Features

[see Keyboard Key Switch Mechanisms]

PBT is a high quality plastic for keycaps. It doesn't create ugly shiny surface after long use.

[see Keycap Tech: ABS, PBT]

It also features dye-sublimated key labels. The means, the key labels are sinked into the keycap plastic. It is impossible to wear off.

Oh, and very expensive.

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.
