Fabulous

This is my Second K2, although the previous one was not the Hot swap one.
With taxes and duties in India, this costs just shy of $125, however It is very worth it as it is THE ONLY KEYBOARD with a 75% layout, that has -

>double shot keycaps [good quality ABS, although would've loved a PBT option]
>wiress [connects upto 3 devices]
>Lubed stems which are exceedingly good and has no rattle, sounds thocky as well.
> Backlit [Which is extremely useful for me]
> Hot swapable

I love everything about it, except the font on the black switches, which look awful and hope Keychron can do something about it in the future.

Furthermore, I would also like to suggest some other additions -
1. Please make it available with more switches like Everglide Aqua, Gateron INK, Tealios, NK Sherbet, Zealios v2 and Possibly Kailh Box Jade/Navy/Royal Blue and so on.
2. A backlit option for the keycaps would be great, especially with some different fonts, what match with the fonts of the white ABS keycaps.
3. Like the QMK, options for different or custom keycaps would also be great.

I hope the team is reading this message. I love your work, hope that you keep improving. Cheers.

Can not input special uniocde characters using ASCII codes.

I understand it is a 75% layout keyboard. But I can not imagine NUMPAD functionality will be totally removed.
There are somethings which I can only write using NUMPAD. The examples are writing ASCII special characters.
e.g. writing ü = ALT + 252 (only in NUMPAD)

I was expecting I would be able to enable the numpad by pressing FN key combinations. Like it is in some laptops.

I usually login to servers that are based in Europe using service accounts. The default locale for those system accounts is set for ISO layout board.
It becomes very hard even to type back slash.

In a normal keyboard I just type ALT+92 (in the numpad) and I get my backslash characters.

At the very least please make this keyboard user programmable.

It Needs Its Own Dongle for Wireless Connection!

The Good
* Keys feels nice and solid.
* Compact keyboard with 2 level height adjustment for better wrist support.
* Can switch between devices easily (FN+1 ... 3) -given if it connects-

The Bad
Before diving into it, the PC is 1.5m away and I'm using USB Bluetooth dongle as my Desktop PC doesn't have built-in bluetooth. I use dual-boot; Linux for work, Windows for gaming. These issues exist on both Windows and Linux.

* When connected via bluetooth, I experienced "lag" a lot.
* Sometimes keys lock on bluetooth mode. For example you want to write "nice" and it ends up with; "niiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiice" which is extremely annoying.
* It disconnects very often without an apparent reason.
* reconnecting is sometimes annoying as it takes long time to re-connect. Sometimes flat out it doesn't connect at all.
* If you have a dual-boot, you have to remember to connect via cable so you can use your keyboard to switch to another OS at the boot.
* No official software.

It really needs its own connector. I have Logitech headphones, Xbox controller etc. and all have their own "connector dongle" and never had a problem with any of them.
