Not bad

Nice keyboard, lightweight and convenient for travel, especially with the carrying case. Downside is lack of first-party software to modify the keyboard layout.

Superb product

Been using this as my daily keyboard for almost a month now, and very satisfied with it's performance and looks. I share a table with my other hobby - model kits and the fact that I can move the keyboard when I need the space is so easy.

Keychron K12

My current favorite keyboard and one I use currently to typing, regular office work, and gaming (MMORPG). Clicky as expected with Gateron blue switches but the only thing keeping from that 5th star is needing more color options (while it gives them on the website, the fact that the other options are perpetually out of stock without any future expected date to resolve that, virtually makes the options very limited on this otherwise excellent keyboard).

By comparison, I've owned 2 other Keychrons but this one is the most compact at 60% and I have even put together a GMMK, which I love and uses Cherry MX blue switches. The Keychron has an extremely similar feel, but just a tiny bit more clicky. This might be preferential, and so you'll have to decide how clicky you like. The keyboard is wonderful for Mac OS, and of course compatible with Windows, so no difficulty there. I wish i could take this keyboard with to work every day (I type a LOT of reports), or even when i travel across the country. I wish I had gotten this one first ... if I could only own two keyboards it would be the Keychron K12, and my low profile 60% GMMK with Cherry MX blue switches (really because I build it myself - and I like the low profile). Packaging is well done, so much that you'd want to keep it around.

Almost perfect

Love the form factor — it’s a great mix between space savings while still giving full functionality. The brown Gateron switches are ok but they’re fairly linear in feeling. Was hoping for a bit more tactility. Would be nice to have Bananas or Mints as an option at checkout. Oh well, that’s what the hotswap is for. Using the FN key to activate the arrows doesn’t bother me as much as I thought it would and I got used to it after about a week! The quality of the keycaps leaves something to be desired. My backspace has a knick in it and I wish that we could choose a different keycap color on checkout. Also wish we could change the speed of the lights, like we can with the K4 and K3; sad that’s not an option on the K12. I also wish the case was a bit shorter at the front but it’s not as bad as the original K4. Overall, it’s a nice 60% board, glad to have purchased it!
