Customer ReviewsWrite a review
I'm really pleased to have come across this keyboard. I am currently using it to type this message out and it feels great. I especially like it because it is one of very few keyboards that ships with MacOs keycaps. This makes it feel more personal rather than using a windows keyboard and remembering which keys you mapped to which MacOs functions. My only disappointment with it was the packaging it came in. Unlike other keyboard companies, Keychron has opted to send the keyboard in a bubble wrapped wrap rather than a box. This left the actual box that the keyboard was in to be very dented and scratched up. The keyboard's condition is just fine, but the box not so much.
Keychron K4 Wireless Mechanical Keyboard
I was looking for a high quality, wireless, mechanical keyboard when I found KeyChron. It was hard to find a mechanical keyboard that seemed high quality and offered bluetooth connection since most of the demand for mechanical keyboards comes from gamers who want the ultra low latency of a wired connection. My requirements for a keyboard were as follows: Mechanical keys with linear actuation, wireless with a preference for Bluetooth, and a 10-key number pad since I use it so frequently (I used a Razer Black Widow that made me want a mechanical keybaord, but also made me realize I needed the 10-key). Some of my wants but not deal breakers were: Some form of back-light, compact size for a cleaner looking desk, and programmable function keys to run code and macros (didn't get the last one, but I can add it with software). With these requirements and wants, I ultimately ended up with a decision between the Logitech G613 or the Keychron K4. There were other option out there, but these two seemed to be the highest quality units available and both had a reasonable price (although the G613 is quite a bit more expensive). I originally was leaning towards the G613. I use a Logitech MX Master 2 mouse that I've had for years and absolutely love so I have some level of brand loyalty to Logitech. It also looks way better that the K4 in pictures. The all black design looks super sleek. When I bought the MX Master, I thought I was going to regret spending $100 on a mouse, but it quickly became one of the best computer accessories I've ever purchases and was worth every penny. Knowing that, I was very willing to pay at least another $150 for a great keyboard.
Originally I thought that the biggest drawback of the K4 was how it looks in the pictures. I almost bought the G613 for no other reason than I didn't want to spend $100 on an ugly keyboard with a bunch of putrid brown key caps that look like they came off a keyboard from the 1980's. My mind was changed very slowly when I saw a few other reviews with pictures of the keyboard that looked a little better. Ultimately, the sleek design, compact size, and very reasonable price won me over, and I figured that even if I had to buy all new key caps, I'd be money ahead buying the K4 and my desk would retain its minimalist vibe. I took the leap and purchased directly from the Keychron's website. I am very glad that I did. Shipping was fast even though it shipped from China. You might be better off buy from Amazon if you're a prime member since it will save you the $20 shipping fee.
When ordering, I did not notice that the aluminum model had mostly gray keys, where as only the plastic model had mostly the bronze keys. Also, I am happy to report that the keys are definitely more of a bronze than they appear in the product photos. The color is very similar to the bronze trim on my MX Master mouse. It is a really decent look and has already started growing on me. Also, the bright orange accents for the escape and light keys really pop. This keyboard looks way better in person than it does in the pictures. I highly recommend it.
The performance of this keyboard is also phenomenal. Key strokes are consistent across the entire keyboard. I selected brown switches as a middle of the road option between the quiet option and the clicky options. I like the long actuation throws on the keys, since it allows me to customize it myself with the o-rings of my choice. The stock throw is to long for my preference, but I really like having the option to customize them myself, something that wouldn't be possible if they shorter out of the box.
I have seen a lot of talk about the auto-sleep function. It does take a little while for the keyboard to wake-up and reconnect. Yes, this is a little annoying, since it misses a few key strokes, but the fine folks at Keychron have given us the ability to turn it off, which I did within the first day. I hope they include a higher level of customization on the next firmware update. I want the auto sleep capability for longer batter life, but I'd like it to be longer than the 10 minutes that it defaults to. 20-30 minutes would be the optimal for me. This wasn't a big issue for me, hence it is still getting five stars, but I do think it is a point for future improvement.
Overall, this is a great keyboard and I highly recommend it. It is made to satisfy a customer just like me, a non-gamer that wants all the function and feel of a mechanical keyboard without a cord to clutter up my desk. The quality is very high. The build is sturdy (maybe beefy is a better word, I've had laptops that were thinner and weighed less). I expect it to last a very long time and so far, I am really impresses. This is a great keyboard and very reasonably priced. I think it is a great deal at just under $100!
I waited 40 days for this... upon receiving it I was really impressed by the look, feel and build in general. However, I need the Bluetooth to work, and it doesn't half the time. As I type this it keeps intermittently cutting out. Other days it works fine for a few hours, then doesn't. It's sad because the product feels so great. I have no idea why they used such an old Bluetooth standard on a product from 2020... Buy it if you'll use it wired, but be wary of the Bluetooth connection if that's what you're after. As for my PC, it has built in Bluetooth on a new X570 board, so my PC is not the problem.
