"Keychron’s new mechanical keyboard, the Q1, has achieved something very impressive. It’s taken the kinds of features and level of quality normally reserved for expensive, assembly-required custom keyboards sold in limited runs, and made it available in a single, beginner-friendly package."
"But I think what’s most impressive is how close the Q1 gets as standard. It’s an amazing keyboard for someone who just wants to buy something fully assembled and without a lengthy waiting period.“
"With the Q1, Keychron unmistakably spent heaps of time and energy thinking about what keyboard enthusiasts value, and what aspirant ones may come to should they fall further down the rabbit hole. Then it built the Q1."
"Despite what Apple’s limited range of input peripherals might suggest, there’s no such thing as a one-size-fits-all keyboard. But with the Q1, Keychron’s made an outstanding keyboard that’s one-size-fits-most.“
"Last but not least, the Q1 can be configured either using QMK or VIA, the latter of which is basically a point-and-click software that lets you rebind and reassign keys in seconds, an important feature for those who want to get the most out of their keyboard."
"All things considered, the Keychron Q1 for its price and features feels like it actually punches well above its weight and if you’re new and don’t know how to navigate this endless stream of “preferences” in this hobby, then the Q1 could be a great place to start."
"I admit, I’m exactly the type of user inclined to fall in love with the Keychron Q1. As someone who spends hours every day typing at his computer, I value a nice keyboard. I’ve progressed from gaming keyboards to custom keyboards."
"So, in a nutshell, the Keychron Q1 is an all-aluminum, hot-swappable mechanical keyboard with a bouncy, super flexible typing experience, that can also be programmed to your heart’s content."
Keychron's Q1 Can Help Beginners Get Started With Customized Mechanical Keyboards - by Tyler Hayes @Newsweek
" The Q1 takes customization and personalization much farther than any Keychron keyboard did before it. It's designed to allow a personal typing experience with the ability to change the switch type, keycaps, stabilizer, add a personal badge and plate."
"The most exciting part about the Q1 is that it makes it easy for newcomers to join in on the mechanical keyboard fun. Just be prepared to put in some time because as neat as the different keycaps look, changing them all out will take some patience."
