Good keyboard, but not what I expected

Package arrived a bit damaged, but that was DHLs fault and the contents were all fine, so not an issue.
The keyboard looks very sturdy and elegant. The Bluetooth switching between multiple devices works like a charm, a feature I do not want to miss any more.
Now for the typing...
I must say I have mixed feelings. For one I find the keys a bit wobbly. Possibly that's just what it is with mechanical keyboards, but I don't like it.
For a slim keyboard I find the keys have waaaaay too much travel. About half the travel would be perfect for me. Again I might be biased here, I have been typing a lot with the apple magic keyboards (not mechanical, maybe not a fair comparison) and tend to say that I make less typos on those. Afterwards I've seen that the optical switch version has 2mm less travel, I regret a bit that I did not go for that one.
I took the brown switches and find them still extremely loud (isn't that the point of brown switches? Clicky feeling but silent ?). Unfortunately the mechanical (LSA Black Keycaps) version does not offer mint or banana switches.

Summary: A high quality keyboard, but not quite what I expected as a typing experience. If I'd buy again I'd chose the optical version with mint switches as I am very used to the Apple Magic Keyboard.

K5SE - Mechanical Red

This keyboard is totally worth all of it's money and even more. If you think about buying it - don't think! Super easy to setup and use with multiple devices via bluetooth and via cable as well. Buttons feel awesome to my fingers, clicks are the most beautiful sound, like a melody to my ears. RGB lights have a lot of setups, which are easy to switch and setup with a several buttons, the brightness of lights is also adjustable.

Fully charged keyboard stayed alive for three days (from 25 to 30 hours of usage, follows what is said in the description) before hit started indicating that it needs to be charged. Ordered on Black Friday, took one day to process an order and send it and eight working days to deliver to Poland.

I want to thank the Keychron company for this awesome product. Will recommend it to everyone!

K5 SE - Mechanical Red (+ separate brown switch set)

Definitely exceeded my expectations, just incredible keyboard plus bluetooth support without any usb dongle is just super convenient. I used previously mac keyboard - the difference is night and day. Typing precision is extraordinary, low profile looks and feels gorgeous. Well done Keychron.
I absolutely recommend to anyone who is typing regularly.

K5 SE - Optical Brown - Awesome!!!

I am so happy and satisfied with the purchase!
I'm coming from a membrane keyboard and this one is just great. I never imagined that writing would be such a great pleasure from day one. The keys sink in so easily and the switches are so smooth. I'm using the brown optical switches, but I also ordered red ones. Just in case.
I LOVE THIS KEYBOARD!!!!
Shipping to Bulgaria was fast and all duties were included in the shipping fee. It takes 10 calendar days from the time of dispatch.
I also ordered lubricant for the switches and stabilizers.
I make some mistakes while typing, but that's normal and I think I'll get used to it very easily.
I haven't tried the bluetooth connection yet, but there is no problem with the cable.

Thank you, Keychron! You're awesome!!!

K5 SE - optical banana

After using Logitech I wanted to try something different. Tactile response is much better, than Logitech brown. Its also much quieter. every key is rock solid, no wobble at all. Im genuinely impresed! 100% recomending. Event shipping into Czech Republic was fast, and all customs was included in shipping fee.
Good job Keychron! Keep it going.

What's the difference between the K5 SE and the K5:

 #1. K5 SE is engineered with reinforced aluminum top case plus plastic bottom case while K5 is constructed with full aluminum body structure.
#2. Added low profile Gateron mechanical hot-swappable version switch.
 #3. Armed with two level adjustable rubber feet to provide ergonomic support.
#4. Five USD less in price than the K5.
