As always, please feel free to let me know if this was helpful or if I missed anything!

nice site! what'd you build it with? to me, this new hhkb is great. i have the hhkb bt and the bt functionality is just subpar compared to this. the effortless device switching and small feature improvements are definitely what give the board the refined experience that you'd expect for the $300 price tag.

Thank you! It is hosted on Squarespace, as Signature mentioned above.

I was actually about to pull the trigger on an HHKB BT right before I went for the Hybrid. The main thing that stopped me was the lack of a wired mode if I needed it. That said, the HHKB BT and Pro 2 both do seem to be pretty good deals secondhand at the moment!
