Customer ReviewsWrite a review
I got the blue switch version, and they are great to type on as the are tactile, clicky but not obnoxiously loud like MX blues. The keyboard feels very sold too, and the white backlighting is very bright. Bluetooth mode worked well on both Windows and Linux. I wish that the keyboard came with height adjustable feet, and the caps lock lit up green when activated.
Keyboard is fantastic. Red switches are quiet, but with very poor haptic feedback. Next time i try blue switches.
Pros: fatastic build quality
what about try to sell keycap sets with local characters?
backlight is not steady - button & right Enter on 104-keys version are... ehm...
sometimes BT issues
RGB backlight modes. They are look amazing, but thats all. No chance to customize, no practicability (i want app where i can set my own backlight for games [like red WASD, all other white], for work (like chars in white, special chars in orange, numbers in red, F's in green), for multimedia)
Status LEDs (Num, Caps, Mac, Win) - they are absolutely useless, because LED isn't bright.
I really, really love this keyboard! It's quiet (I got the blue switches), the lights are great, there are so many modes you can flip through, and it looks and feels lovely on my desk. The only improvement I can see is adding risers so you can have it at an angle. I ended up getting tiny laptop wedges that work for the keyboard too, so it's at an angle when I type. Otherwise, it's perfect!
Excellent presentation. Materials are fantastic. Functions perfectly. Couple drawbacks though:
I don't feel key actuation. Maybe it's just the type of switch, and I should have gone with blue, but overall don't feel too much actuation or travel. (But that's why it's slim right?)
There's no back feet, so the keyboard only has it's built angle on it. I would have loved to see some extra feet or adjustability included.
They key caps themselves feel slippery. There's no curvature to the keys, so they're just flat. Again, this is probably just the case with this slim design, but I was expecting a little bit of a curve on the keys.
The lighting is amazing with the RGB. Personally the best I've seen.
I love the build quality. It's built amazing, and I really have no concern about how long it may last.
I love the included swappable keys and switches to switch between windows and Mac. I use Remote Desktop on my Mac and am constantly switching between Mac and Windows.
Overall - I should have gone with the blue switches personally. I would have appreciated that feedback. But alas here we are. I like the keyboard, wish it had a little more ergonomics, but I have no regrets purchasing the keyboard. If you're looking for a low profile keyboard, this one will do the job.
For my audio production, I was looking something similar to the iKBC F87 TKL/RGB keyboard that I use for my regular typing and programming work. However for obvious reasons I needed more quiet switches than the Cherry MX blues that my iKBC has, which have the best clicky feel you can find but are fairly noisy.
Besides the silent operation I also needed a low profile unit to tuck it under my touchscreen when I'm at the DAW, and wireless functionality to move it around and be able to control the audio recording applications remotely when I'm using my instruments. The K1 meets all those requirements nicely. It is built as a rock and is very dependable --no problems so far. The Gateron red switches are smooth and hush, and they appear to be well built. This is the first time I use anything else than Cherries since I started using mech keyboards back in the 90s.
My only minor gripes are that, in contrast to the F87, there are no visual indicators when the Caps Lock and Scroll Lock keys are activated (the latter is useful when using FL Studio), and that the keycaps are not PBT so they are missing "that" texture. Nonetheless I can certainly live without those.
