A good keyboard for its price and statistics

So, the Keychron K12 is an excellent mechanical keyboard, especially for its price. It's important to know that the aluminum does not extend under the keyboard; It is simply a frame, which is important to note. I have been using the keyboard for a while now, and I have noticed a few things: Firstly, some keys double click, albeit rarely. This is almost undoubtedly due to my being used to a lower profile and heavier keyboard, so do not take this into account when you are buying it if you are a heavy typist. It's a good keyboard for gaming, but there is a little latency with the bluetooth, on both iOS and windows. I suspect however that it will disappear with newer devices, I am on an older iPhone and slightly older PC, neither of which have the latest bluetooth connectors. Aside from those downsides, I think that it should also come with a light carrying case, since its main design is portability and wireless connectivity; this means that it is a keyboard meant for the go. For the price tag, it should be pretty easy to fit a cheaper but nice looking simple case, maybe a fold around case, but if they want even a heavier zip-up case would be excellent.

All in all, amazing keyboard for the price, watch out for lighter typing, and maybe ship it with a case, even if its a lighter/cheaper one.

Also, Keychron, you should make a hard, zip-up case for the K12 specifically; even if it's sold seperately, it's 100% something that I would buy. Maybe add a water resistant feature on it for rainier days, like a rubber lip on the zipper.
