Keychron's Mac Layout
Keychron is one of the few mechanical keyboards that features macOS media keys (F1 to F12) in a Mac layout with the same as conventional Mac systems.
I decided to buy the Keychron K2 with red swithes and white backlight.
After several days of use, I can say that I am very happy with the purchase: I think the keyboard has a good quality of materials and assembly, it is comfortable, the feel of keycaps and red swithes are very good and pleasant. The key configuration option and the different animations of the LEDs, are a plus.
Finally, if you are a spanish speaker, you will be able to write special letters like ñ, á, é, í, ó, ú (or à, è, ò...) automatically by connecting the keybord to the computer, with no need to further configurations.
Satisfied for the overall build quality , typing experience is excellent too
This keyboard exceeded my expectations. Feels so solid and well built. There are microscopic defects but overall it's such a good keyboard. This is my first post modern mechanical keyboard. Keychron customer service been good responses, and despite some additions to my order, they got it all right, and fast! The package arrived without problems that some people have described, it was wrapped in big heavy bubble wrap. Can't be happier! The original keycaps are superb as it but I did order extra keycaps, review soon on that. Brown switches are enjoyable to use as expected and are the original versions, not the updated cap versions. Thoroughly recommend this brand, it's really nice.
I purchased the K3 with Blue Mech switches. Arrived two day earlier than expected (very nice). This is the best keyboard I have used that is designed for the Mac. Switched from a more expensive brand to the smaller and more space efficient keyboard. Oh yeah; buy the case when you get the keyboard.
I've had my K4 for a while now and I still really love it as a keyboard. A few months after I bought it, the 'A' key cap cracked along the surface. I emailed Keychron about it, and they were very responsive and I got two replacement A keys at no charge and quite quickly. Looks great. Works great. Very convenient. If you're thinking about buying one, you won't regret it. (I recommend brown switches.)
This keyboard is amazing. It is such high quality and I love how bright the rgb is
Excellent for my MacBook
I am using K2 V2 (Hot-swap) as I write review for this board, and I really love the black and white color combination. The legends are kinda blurry on some keys, but I still enjoy using it regardless!
For me, the typing feel and sound on Gateron brown switch is so amazing that I feel like I don’t need to do any modding TBH!
I would 100% buy another Keychron board in the future!
One of the best keyboards I have ever tested. I can only recommend it. The price / performance ratio is great!
I bought a K2 with Gateron Red switches and I can say that this is the best keyboard I ever had so far. It's beautiful and sturdy and with o-ring I feel great typing every day. One question: is there a way to stuck the backlight effect? I am not so fond of rainbow effects or other light except the regular white light but since I use a lot the DEL key, which is next to the light button, everytime I accidentally change the backlight effect.
I got the red switches and love the rapid response with still a very pleasant and muted clacky sound.
If I were to improve anything it would be another half step on the risers from flat to just a bit too high for me.
Would also be keen to have the keys switchable in the standard gray coloured version without having to get the black/white contrasty one.
Im a happy typer though :)
After reading the product description, this keyboard sounded like everything I was looking for for my workstation (I do technical support and lots of writing). I particularly love how the keycaps are wide and flat, but still slightly concave. An unexpected issue with previous mechanical keyboards I own, is that the tops of the keycaps are too small and narrow, which causes my fingers to slip. So having these larger and flatter keycaps has been a really nice change.
I also appreciate that a more subtle, darker Escape key is included in the package. While I enjoy the default Escape key, which is orange, the backlight does light up the entire top half of the key, which I find to be distracting — my only minor complaint about the design. Other pluses include the option for USB-C for charging and a wired connection, and a space bar that's ever so slightly softer than the other keys, which is a nice touch. One caveat: I haven't tested the keyboard in Bluetooth mode yet, so I can't attest to battery life or the stability of the wireless connection. But almost all other mechanical keyboards are wired anyway, so while it's a nice-to-have, it isn't a must-have feature I was on the lookout for.
I have a K6 and I really like that one. Good layout, great build quality, good components, good switches. But I didn't like the missing dedicated delete key, the placement of the "back lighting" key, missing F-keys. It was just little things that kept it from being perfect.
The K3 took what I loved about the K6 and improved everything I didn't.
The layout is great and feels really natural. I don't feel like any keys are cumbersome even for coding. I really like the addition of the F-keys without adding any horizontal width.
The total height of the board is amazingly thin and I love it. The horizontal width is really nice - allows me to keep gamepads and other equipment on the desk more easily.
Hot-swap. Do I need to pull switches that often? No, but this is a really nice feature in case something catastrophic happens, like with me and my K6 and a cup of coffee. I spilled into the case. So I unplugged it and quickly disassembled the board, ensuring liquid never made it to the chips. Several switches were "coffee-logged". Thanks to hot-swappable switches, I was able to pull and replace all the affected keys, dry off all the parts, reassemble, plug in and get on with my day.
Finally, the best part, the switches! I bought this with the optical orange hot-swap switches and they immediately became my favorites switches. The travel, the resistance, the sound the tactile feedback are perfect. The travel is shorter, but I find that I really like it. The travel feels more "precise" to me and makes me less likely to bang on the keys. The resistance, the springs are a little tougher but I like that they prevent me from bottoming out quite so bad. The sound is a sharp but quiet click--enough to hear easily, but not announce your typing to the whole office. The tactile feedback is perfect. It feels very sharp and helps prevent bottoming out. I'm sure the blues share many of these qualities, and I'm sure I'd like those as well.
It's so thin and light and impressive. Packed with features. I can't believe the price they're able to sell it for.
Keychron K2 Wireless Mechanical Keyboard (Version 2)
I purchased this keyboard for loved one that has longer nails. she was very apprehensive about using a mechanical keyboard. it's been about 2 months now and she LOVES it. she no longer has to type with the tips of her nails. she especially loves the RBG back lighting.
thank you Keychron.
i'll be purchasing one for myself soon as i get the "available" e mail.
