Compared with other mechanical keyboards, it requires less force and uses less finger travel, which reduces finger fatigue and provides an unmatched typing comfortability.

The K1 keyboard works with macOS, iOS, Windows, and Android.

With just a slide of a button on the side panel, you can switch between the various operating systems as easy as pie, and connects up to 3 devices via Bluetooth.

I absolutely love this keyboard!!

This is my first mechanical keyboard and I love how it feels to type on it and how it sounds! I was worried it would be too noisy and clicky but its perfect!

Amazing keyboard! Completely changed my work and gaming experience.

I purchased the K1 V5 with the Gateron Brown keys. This keyboard is an absolute dream to use. It has some of the most satisfying keystrokes, making it a pleasure for both work and gaming. It's aesthetically pleasing and has keys that are very well lit, with adjustable brightness. It comes with a key puller in case you want to swap out keys, such as the Option/Command for WinKey/Alt depending on your preferences.

I haven't tried the Bluetooth functionality yet. For those of you who aren't crazy about wireless keyboards, rest assured that you can indeed use this keyboard in wired mode, with an improved polling rate.

Also, I love that this keyboard remembers my backlight mode. There are like a billion modes you can cycle through (various patterns and sequences, all the way to just steady always on). With some other keyboard brands, when you use a USB switcher/KVM to switch between computers, they keyboards can forget your setting and make you have to toggle through the options before you settle back on the backlight setting you had. Not with this keyboard. I can switch between my work/personal computer all day long, and the keyboard will always remember what I had it set on last.

If you're on the fence about this keyboard, don't be. Just buy it. Now. You won't regret it.

Great keyboard

Hi,
I have K1 low-profile keyboard for more than a year and I am more than satisfied! The are two things that may be improved Supplied software for easy setting (currently is possible only with key shortcuts) and adjustable feet.

Important!
for those of you that have connection issues that cause freezing or similar issues, you can disable the sleep mode on the keyboard (https://keychronsupport.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/360044087054-How-to-disable-Auto-Sleep-Mode-).
It's not the best solution but is some kind of solution that fixes the problem.
