Customer ReviewsWrite a review
I have been using Keychron K1 for a month now and I have no complaint whatsoever.
The battery last for about a week (because I never turn off the keyboard except auto sleep, and the lightning is always on).
Keyboard tactileness and everything is as expected.
This is my first mechanical keyboard and I really love it!
I bought this keyboard about a month ago, and I can honestly say it's the best keyboard I've ever owned. I bought it because my previous keyboard had blue switches, and was way too clicky for my liking. I got the RGB with browns and it's still got that same keypress feeling, but without the annoying clicky sound. The feel of the keys is great, the travel is little and light (so less finger fatigue) and the wireless function is seamless and lightning fast. I cannot recommend this keyboard enough, it's just perfect.
One of the best keyboards I ever used! I use it in wired mode with Mac Mini, the only trouble the BT gives me is when it takes time to connect to the computer when the keyboard wakes up from the power saving mode, so I decided to use the wired mode. Aside from that, everything is fine - and I also want to try K8.
Love how easy it is to switch between products
I have got 2 full-sized (104-key) K1 Version 4.
I am a programmer by profession and type a lot for my work, but maybe not as much as a writer.
I first got one with RED switches.
K1 is thin compared to other mechanical keyboards.
But since I was using 'Apple's Magic Keyboard with Trackpad' before, it took some time to adapt to the thickness of the K1.
For reference, the thickest (rear) edge of the Apple keyboard is same as the thinnest (front) edge of K1.
It takes about 1-2 weeks to get adjusted to it.
Then after a few weeks, I got a similar K1 again, but with BLUE switches this time.
I tried the Razor's BlackWidow Green switch keyboard and immediately liked the key-press feel and feedback.
Due to its incompatibility with Mac and lack of US layout in Norway, I ordered the second one.
I found the BLUE switches a bit hard initially.
It takes a few days, maximum up to a week, for the switches to lose their initial hardness.
I'm really happy with both of my keyboards.
I will be keeping clicky BLUE for home use and linear RED for the office.
My wishlist for Keychron:
1. Armrest for K1, which is of the same size as Apple keyboard, since they form a continuous scope with kept flushed to each other.
2. Wired version of keyboard with less thickness and lower cost by eliminating battery.
3. 104-keys keyboard with hot-swappable switches.
4. Vertically aligned normal and shift characters instead horizontally aligned.
5. USB-C to USB-C cable (or an adapter) since target users are Mac users with USB-C on their Macbooks.
