Great keyboard for the price

Although it is very pingy out of the box, with a few quick customisations it will sound amazing. Shipping isn’t that quick tho, with slow and outdated updates.

Love it! Amazing board! Great Price!

The Keychron Q1 is my first hotswap keyboard, and I absolutely love it! In my case, I chose to swap my switches for Aqua King linears instead, and it is a match made in heaven! Buy one of these boards if you are just getting into mechs, you won't regret it!

Exactly what I expected

And that's an excellent thing. This keyboard checks so many boxes it's ridiculous. I will say one really important thing tho: it has terrible "ping sounding" issues due to it's build configuration but they can be easily solved with a few decently placed masking tape bits. Otherwise this is such a great value both in terms of features and quality. Great job Keychron, wireless 2.4GHz version when?

Switch layouts between
macOS & Windows.

Built with the Mac users’ experience in mind while still retaining compatibility for Windows devices, Keychron Q1 comes with a system toggle and an additional set of customized keycaps for both Windows and macOS systems.

Gasket-mounted design makes typing more flexible.

The gasket design provides the board with a nice, flexible typing feel and a satisfying typing sound. The Q1’s maximum flex is up to 2.5mm, which makes the board one of the most flexible out there.

Program Q1 with
QMK & VIA.

With full QMK and VIA support, you can program and remap each key on the keyboard with ease. The open-source firmware means endless possibilities for keyboard layouts, shortcuts, backlight effects, and more.

VIA is a keyboard keymap programming software. Using VIA, you can define every key and even write MACROS for the key combinations you want on your Q1. VIA supports macOS, Windows & Linux.

Hot-swappable.

The hot-swappable sockets are mounted on the PCB, so you can install or change the switches without soldering. The PCB supports both 3 pin and 5 pin MX mechanical switches.

South-facing RGB LED Lights.

The south-facing RGB SMD LED lights are easy to be seen because they are facing toward the typer. It’s also good for the PBT, Cherry profile, and non-shine-through keycaps which are popular for customized keycaps.

Gateron Phantom switches.

Keychron teamed up with Gateron to create the exclusive Phantom switches. They deliver near-perfect consistency and smoothness with each keypress. Phantom switches are pre-lubed from the factory, offer less wobbliness, while increasing the switch's stability.

Note: The phantom switches have phantom light effects that allow the RGB backlight to have the switches' own case color. The red will make the backlights have more of a red lava fire effect, the blue will allow the backlights to have a more of a mysterious blizzard-like effect , and the brown will make the backlights have a light coffee color effect.

Keychron Q1 75% Custom Mechanical Keyboard stabilizers

All new Gateron screw-in PCB stabilizers.

The screw-in design increases stability and makes it easy for changes and upgrades. More precise craftsmanship makes the silver-plated stabilizers more stable and less wobbly. The big keys’ (space bar, shift, enter, delete) typing experience is more stable and smooth. 

Keychron Q1 also supports third-party stabilizers including Cherry or Durock.

Cable management is easy with the premium coiled aviator cable.

Whether your computer's interface is on the left, right, or front of the desk, the premium coiled aviator cable can be laid out in any manner.  We have also designed the coiled aviator cables in different colors to match the different color cases.

ANSI & ISO layouts.

ISO layout is widely used in Europe while the ANSI layout is widely used by the rest of the world.

Note: If you live in Europe, we recommend you to purchase the "Barebone ISO” version with the corresponding ISO PBT keycaps together. The "Barebone ISO” is suitable for all ISO keyboard countries like the UK, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Iceland, etc.
