Customer ReviewsWrite a review
first things first i love my C2 keyboard it does everything i want it to and its perfect for all the typing i have to do for my uni work the keys caps feel wonderful and the overall build is very sturdy and for being so cheep i think it could easily go up against some higher end keyboards and come out on top
when i first set up this keyboard people who wouldn't normally be interested in my computer setup stopped by to say how good it looked YES THAT'S RIGHT THIS KEYBOARD ACTUALLY GETS GIRLS TO TALK TO ME
but i have a few things that i would love to see
first of all i would love to see a british standard layout as an option as i am still getting used to some keys being in different places
and i would love to see more switch options such as cherry MX
but these things would only add to an outstanding product and i truly think that given time keytron could make a perfect keyboard straight from the box keep up the good work
Wanted a simple full numpad enabled keyboard and the Keychron C2 has delivered a very good typing experience after about 20 days of use.
The keyboard worked great with both Mac and my Windows 10 machines via the switch in the left front of the keyboard. Love that you get a USB C connection and the cable is easy to replace. The white key lighting has several patterns and unlike some competing models you can just press a button instead of having to install software. You can also go with the RGB option. The black with light and darker grey keycaps are good looking and the red switches are great to type on too. The height of the keyboard is very good and you get not just one but two adjustments for the legs on the bottom. My only complaint was that there is a tiny bit more key wobble than some keyboards but at this price but it's a very small complaint.
This is a great keyboard for those on a budget and while it is is my first Keychron, it will not be the last.
This is the best keyboard I’ve used. The only thing I don’t like is how sensitive the keys are but I think that will be fixed once I change the keys. I use this one for work since it’s wired and I wouldn’t want to go back to the Mac keyboard. Love that it’s full sized as well.
I was looking for a fullsize keyboard for work for a long time and finally found one ! As I own the K4 from earlier and have really good experience with it, I wanted another one for work until I found the C2 as it checked all my boxes (no bluetooth, fullsize, easier layout for coworkers to use, backlit, removable usb-c and hot-swappable just incase I want to try other switches)
After using this keyboard for over two weeks now I can safely say it's lovely for work, I had no issues with it, it's well lit and has a slightly lower height than my K4, which helps with typing (with a wrist rest). I have nothing else to add other than this is a fantastic keyboard! My only regret that I didn't get the RGB version as it was out of stock, but I can see myself quickly snatching the RGB version as soon as it's in stock for home to maybe replace my K4!
TLDR; Wonderful product, you won't regret it, the best and one of the rare fullsize mechanical keyboards out there with hotswap options and a removable usb-c cable
I have truly nothing to complain about this keyboard, it's brilliant! It has a num pad which I need for work, it has RGB if you truly need it (I chose white backlight) and the best part, you can change the switches if you want to with hotswap. Also the entire thing feels sturdy and has a lovely, crisp font on it.
I'm super happy I snagged it, going to make office work a little less of a headache :D
