Keyboards made by Realforce are considered one of the best keyboard among keyboard fans. This is even before the mechanical keyboard craze after 2010.

This keyboard has Japanese layout. Note the very short space bar. This is actually superior design than normal USA layout, because, huge space key is a waste of space. See: Tiny Space Bar on Japanese Keyboards.
The traditional huge space bar came from mechanical type writers, and habit dictate since. See: Computer Keyboard Design Flaws.
Review of Realforce Keyboard
Realforce keyboard are very expensive, typically over $200. They use topre key switch, and high quality build, keycaps, key label. However, they are typically not programable.

In my opinion, it's not worth it. But, better than Happy Hacking Keyboard.
