Any thoughts on the HHKB BT? How is it holding up? What is realistic battery life? Any issues?

I've been using one as a daily while at work for just about 2 months now. I haven't had any issues. I was the 2nd owner of my board and replaced the batteries after one month of use.

It's all good. No proper issues apart from having to restarting it every week because it just stops working so whatever. Battery is super good, a couple months probably.

I already own a black Pro 2 and a Type-S :D

Wouldn't be bad having one of each variant though. I also need a Pro (1).

Pretty much.  They do turn up from time to time, sometimes quite yellowed, although restoration is possible.
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But that’s incorrect. It’s in HHKB’s slogan, but when America’s cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

Does anyone know anything about how the "multi-pairing" feature works?

From the Google translated PFU page (http://www.pfu.fujitsu.com/hhkeyboard/bt/feature.html), it sounds like it can hold 4 devices in memory.

I'm hoping it's something similar to the BT on the Filco MJ2 Convertible, but I don't think the HHKB BT would have a full blown switcher like the Filco.

My BT is still winding it's way through the postal system, has anyone tried pairing theirs to more than one device at once?

Torn between an HHKB Pro 2 and the BT.  Sounds like a few people have had issues here.  If I were to buy it, I'd purchase it through a proxy (ZenMarket), so warranty/returns might be tricky.  Anyone else been using this as a daily driver without issues, or has anyone dealt with repairs through PFU?  Cheers.

I've had mine for a long time now (July maybe?) and have had zero issues with it.

That being said, if its just sitting at a desk or you really don't plan on moving around with it a lot; get a Pro 2. Not worth the increased cost.

I've purchased an HHKB from them, along with a few other things, and had a good experience with them. I've read here on GH other people have some frustrating experiences with them, due to slow shipping, delayed communication, etc.

I've heard that it's cheaper to get it through a Japanese shopping service like this:

https://zenmarket.jp/default.aspx

I tried to buy something through zenmarket once, however my credit card apparently didn't think it was a good idea and declined the purchase.

I've had no issues with my HHKB BT.

It plays nice with Apple devices (Mac and iOS), and works with a Lenovo X1 Carbon as well.

I totally want the BT version. I want it so much but I can't live without Hasu's controller mod for programmability. HHKB + programming is an utter delight. Is it worth the sacrifice for wireless glory?

Can't you have both? Or does having one preclude the other?

Well hasu has his own Bluetooth controller which has been out for some time now but it is a replacement controller for the regular hhkb.

Their is currently no hasu replacement controller for the new hhkb Bluetooth model.

Has anyone had experience with a stock HHKB with BT Hasu vs. the HHKB BT?

I am really tempted to buy one as I'm a bit underwhelmed by the Hasu BT controller (repeated key presses, crappy battery life, and coil whine when in USB pass through mode). I have also seen that the HHKB uses an updated slider design, does that change the feeling of the keyboard at all?
I'm planning to pick one up in Japan, it's currently 29,000JPY vs 19,400JPY (Amazon.co.jp), but considering the price of a Hasu BT ($90), then I'm really looking at around $255 (HHKB BT) vs. $260 (HHKB Pro2 with Hasu).
I'm thinking of going for the HHKB BT, but I think I'm going to miss the programmability for sure :/
Would really appreciate any pointers of anyone who has had experience of the two!

I have a problem with my HHKB BT board. Sometimes it freeze for few second and when it reconnect, it would repeats the last key I put in for endless time. Has anyone experienced anything like this?

I also have a normal HHKB and it works very well, but this wireless, expensive HHKB BT really annoys me. I connect it via WiFI and bluetooth unit on my Z170N-WIFI mainboard. Wondering if changing bluetooth dongle will fix it?

I had this problem with mine as well, to a point that keys repeat every few minutes until i turn off the board. Turn on the board again and the problem still persists. What I tried that worked was to delete/reset all the pairings (I was using it with macOS Sierra and Windows 10), and re-paired it with just one device. I haven't had the problem ever since. I'm now thinking that this was an issue with the multi-device part of its software/firmware.

It's been a week nowwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww         sssssssssince

Kidding aside, it's been 1 week now since the last time this happened.

Odd... I have been having this same issue since I got it two weeks ago. Will not play nice with my work laptop, the sad part is I just got off the phone with IT to remove the device from the list so my PC could find it again to try re-pairing. And same issue again. is it just FN+z to delete the pairings? Or is it FN+Z+Del?  This is frustrating!

I'm contemplating the purchase of this keyboard but I have one question.

Would this keyboard work in the BIOS/UEFI? Or more pertinently in GRUB? Would it be necessary a USB dongle? If so, which one?
I ask this because I'll be dual-booting Linux and Windows and this is important.

Thanks.

No matter the circumstances it won't. It's just a regular bt4 keyboard that needs bluetooth pairing. As far as i know only intel compute stick supports bluetooth keyboards in bios.

I ended with Hasu and sold the HHKB BT abomination. The battery compartment is ugly and there's no USB mode at all, the USB is power only.

If you expected a keyboard for use with a USB cable, then surely it was the wrong purchase.

For a single keyboard, I would probably not choose a USB one. But as I have two other HHKBs, I would still like a bluetooth one.

I have this same issue, but it was also happening on my old AnnePro so I'm starting to blame the dongle/BT drivers/windows. So far have tried replacing the dongle but the issue has not looked to get any better.
