Customer ReviewsWrite a review
Its the 3 keyborad that I buy. Are fantastic, a pity that don't have the spanish layout. But by the rest......... fantastic.
MKs turned into a quarantine obsession for me. The keychron has definitely been a good starting point to get into them since it's easy to modify (putting foam into the case, lubing the switches, changing keycaps etc.) and it's good to get a feel for MKs, especially at that price. The typing experience is amazing and the functionality (wired & BT mode, windows & macOS) is definitely a plus. The German ISO layout is another positive and convinced me to do the purchase. Overall I am very satisfied with the K2.
This is an amazing keyboard! I cant find anything bad with it.
The features this board provides at this price point are hard to beat. Especially if you need the wireless functionality.
I do not regret the purchase of this board at all.
Still this board is not perfect. What I'd love to see improved are:
Keycaps: The stock ABS keycaps feel horrible to me. I replaced them after one day because I couldn't stand the feel. I'd gladly pay for PBT with proper legends.
Onboard Remapping: A way to remap keys and/or create layers without relying on software on the host PC, like custom firmwares like QMK enables you to do, would make the value go through the roof!
Sound: While typing on the keyboard the case sounds pretty hollow. On disassembly you can confirm this for yourself (and fill the voids with foam to fix this 😉)
I was watching out for the German ISO keyboard K2 for a while. Unfortunately it took around a month untill they stocked it up.
One week ago I finally received the mail telling me that there is an option available.
From there on it alle went perfectly fine. You can easily reach out for them via Instagram for personal contact.
The social media guys told me that it might take them 4to 6 weeks to deliver the keyboard to Germany. bad news for me. The great thing: It only took one instead of for weeks. I've been using the keyboard for a few hours now and I am a great fan alread. Love it.
Nevertheless I can already tell that even with the second Version of the K2 you'd definitely need something to put your wrist on. For long hours of typing I am afraid it might become a bit exhausting.
All in all I got what I wanted and they hold what they promise- 5/5 stars. :) keep grinding guys (Y)
