Not much more to say. Great typing experience, very good build quality.
as i have already written in a survey on layouts i want, i can only repeat myself: i love this mechanical k8 with iso de layout. and i use it every day in the office and also take it home on weekends for my gaming sessions.
but what i would love more is a iso de version of the k1, as i then could leave one in the office and have one dedicated at home ;) thx
I ordered the Keychron K8 to Germany with Red gateron switches but recieved the Brown switches. The support gave me a 15$ refund and shipped me the Red switches for free wich came in a week.
The support was very kind and the Keyboard works fine.
I have ordered the german layout and got it shipped to Croatia. Took about 14 days, everything is top notch. Nothing to complain here :) (Kann dat dinge nur weiterempfehlen. Odlična tipkovnica, nažalost nema hrvatski layout za nju, ali mi nije sporno pošto koristim njemački layout)
I'm working frequently with multiple Macs and a Windows machine. It works just great, nothing better seen, nothing better tested. A dream came true!
One keyboard for five devices, once configured on each device it works always as you would expect it!
