Awesome board, just wish it the RGB was north facing.

I have been waiting for a high quality 100% board, and then one finally arrived. Long time GMMK user, this board sounds and feels WAY better. My only issue, is the south facing RGB doesn't work well with shine through keycaps, and I love my RGB. That is the one thing keeping it from being absolutely perfect for me. But, it is a great board! If you need a 100%, this is the one.

This keyboard is incredible

I got sucked down the rabbit hole of custom keyboards via Youtube, and I stumbled across Keychron thanks to a friend who ordered a K10 and seems to love it. I cannot stress how incredible the Q6 is, It has surpassed every expectation of what I imagined a keyboard could be, and to think it all just came like this prebuilt is even more impressive. The build quality is just immaculate and this thing is built like a tank. It just feels like a premium experience the second you get it out of the box. If you are at all on the fence about getting one of these, get off the fence and just purchase it already. I could not be happier.

premium look and feel, very heavy; pretty colors; missing switch and key removal

Replacing Logitech mechanical keyboard, Keychron Q6 ANSI knob. This beast is VERY heavy.
Typing is pleasant experience, quieter than Romer-G switches used in Logitech G413. Key-cap tops aren't visible without external light - RGB lightning is only for visual effect, not for making your key-caps visible at night. Difference is big as G413 had translucent key-caps with visible symbols (clearly visible without external light).

My fully assembled ANSI Q6 knob version didn't ship with key- nor switch removal tools or screwdriver. No problem, but if you write in your leaflets it contains those items, it SHOULD contain it.

This thing is EPIC

What a monster of a board! Super simple to get into and mod to get the sound you like, I ditched the sound absorbing layer in favor of doing a tape mod, and replaced the stock plate with the FR4. With the SP Magical Girl switches and Drop MT3 Cyber caps, it sounds and feels AMAZING.

It was about time I treated myself to a better keyboard for work and I'm glad I waited until this was available. If you need a full size, you cannot go wrong here!

wow

I love this keyboard. It is so amazingly heavy. I don't really know what else there is to say about this thing. There was really only a single thing that threw me off with this keyboard: it doesn't have any feet to raise it up at an angle. It isn't really an issue, but it was strange. I don't know that I've ever had a keyboard that doesn't have them. Typing on it while it is flat is just fine, but I prefer to have it raised up.

I have a K10 that feels great with the feet fully raised. In order to get the Q6 to feel right, I went searching for some rubber feet to add. I measured the difference between the K10 and the Q6 to be around 10-12 mm. I went and ordered some 10mm feet for it. They put it almost dead on. You could easily get 11 or 12mm feet (if you can find them) to get it exact, but the 10mm feet were great. I don't know if Amazon links are allowed here, so I'll just put in the name of the feet: Black Tall Square Adhesive Rubber Bumper Pads - Made in USA – Rubber Feet for Speakers, Electronics, Furniture, Appliances, Audio Equipment - 20 Pieces. They are just shy of 10mm (9.7mm), but they are pretty good. I might try to find something a tad bit higher just to see, though.

A Refined Piece of Metal Art

The entire metal body is crafted with 6063 aluminum that is processed through CNC machined, polished, anodized, sandblasted, and undergoes 24 more manufacturing stages to make this solid metal piece of art that is the Q6. 

Keychron Q6 Full Size Custom Mechanical Keyboard

All-around customizable keyboard

To build a fully customizable keyboard, we designed every component easily assembled. Therefore, you can customize and adjust each component you want.

Keychron Q6 Full Size Custom Mechanical Keyboard

Double Gasket Design

The Double Gasket Design is a new innovative structure in the industry. In addition to the gaskets on the plates, we added silicone pads between the top and bottom cases to significantly reduce the sound resonance between the metals and reduce the noise of the impacted metals. This design allows the keyboard to maintain the flexibility of the gasket structure and improves the overall typing sound.

An Epic Core Inside The Keyboard

A brand new ultra-low-power MCU Arm structure that is powerful and armed with 128K Flash to provide more flexibility for developers. The polling rate is up to 1000 Hz out of the box, which makes latency non-existent for the competitive game.

OSA Profile Double-shot PBT Keycaps

For the new double-shot PBT keycaps, we built a new profile. It has a similar height to the OEM profile and has an SA-like shape. We named it the OSA (OEM spherical angled) keycap. The PBT keycaps will provide excellent oil resistance, enhance the type feel, and prevent the legends from fading out.

Switch layouts between macOS & Windows

Built with the Mac users’ experience in mind while still retaining compatibility for Windows devices, the Keychron Q6 comes with a system toggle and an additional set of customized keycaps for both Windows and macOS systems. You can now save two different layouts on the keyboard, one for each system.

Programmable Knob

Designed to enhance your creative workflow, the premium rotary encoder allows you to easily customize your favorite keys and macros on the knob through the VIA software.

You can easily customize the Q6's knob to your desired key or macro commands such as: zooming in/out, adjusting screen brightness, brush size, volume, selecting video clips or photos, or backlight hue.

Using the knob as "zoom in/out"

Program Q6 with QMK & VIA

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

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 LED is designed to better illuminate the keyboard backlight from the typist’s angle with the premium non-shine-through PBT keycaps installed. The south-facing RGB is also free from interference when the users install OEM or Cherry-profile alternative keycaps on the keyboard.

Note: The Q6's top case has sharper corners to make it much more compatible with third-party keycaps.

Pre-lubed Gateron G Pro Switch

The optimized molded switch with more precise positioning and less wobble will undoubtedly improve the feel at your fingertips. With the fully assembled Q6 version fitted with factory pre-lubricated Gateron G Pro switches, a smoother travel experience is guaranteed for you.

Gateron G Pro Switch Features
All New Screw In PCB Stabilizers

All New Screw-in PCB Stabilizers

The screw-in design increases stability and makes it easier for changes and upgrades. Precise craftsmanship makes the stabilizers more stable and less shaky. The big keys’ (space bar, shift, enter, delete) typing experience is now more stable and smooth. The Keychron Q6 also supports third-party stabilizers, including Cherry or Durock.

Looking for ISO Layout?

The Q6 ISO collection comes with fully assembled keyboards with 🇬🇧UK, 🇩🇪German, 🇩🇰🇫🇮🇮🇸🇳🇴🇸🇪Nordic, 🇨🇭Swiss, 🇫🇷French, and 🇪🇸 Spanish layout, and the “Barebone ISO" option is suitable for all ISO countries (e.g.: 🇮🇹Italy, 🇵🇹Portuguese, 🇭🇺Hungary, etc.) to build their keyboard with keycaps in their preferred languages and switches.
