All-around customizable keyboard
To build a fully customizable keyboard, we designed every component to be easily assembled so you can customize and adjust any or every parts the way you want.
Note: The screw heads are molded into the case, so they have a very strong grip and won’t fall out.
Designed to enhance your creative workflow, its aluminum rotary encoder allows you to customize your favorite keys and macros on the knob through the VIA software with ease.
You can easily customize the V1's knob to your desired key or macro commands like zooming in/out, adjusting screen brightness, brush size, volume, selecting video clips or photos, or backlight hue.
An Epic Core Inside The Keyboard
A powerful ultra-low-power ARM architecture MCU equipped with 128K Flash will provide more flexibility for developers. The polling rate is 1000 Hz right out of the box, which makes the latency hardly noticeable even in competitive games.
OSA Profile Double-shot PBT Keycaps
These double-shot PBT keycaps have 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 V1 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.
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.
Pre-lubed Keychron K Pro Switch
By optimizing the switch mold, the K Pro switch wobbles less than a standard mechanical switch and feels smoother on each hit. Plus, the factory pre-lubed process on all the K Pro switches (exclude the clicky ones), no doubt this will ensure the best smoothness at your fingertips when typing.
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 V1 also supports third-party screw-in PCB stabilizers.

Got the keyboard few days ago, I am surprised for how good it is for the price. Don't even need to mod anything, stabs are pretty good, no metal sound/resonance, brown switches are pretty good, highly recommend!
I've been digging deep into the custom keyboards' world before buying me one, and then I decided to buy this keyboard. It's absolutely perfect for whoever wants to start with custom keyboards because it feels so good and it's FULLY CUSTOMIZABLE. The switches are hot-swappable but you can choose from 3 different types (I picked the browns, 10/10 would choose them again, supercreamy) , the default keycaps are good quality and pretty decent color and it's compatible with QMK and VIA softwares to re-map the keybinds (which is something very important and you should look for it in every keyboard). The RGB is nice, you can choose from a lot of color schemes and select the LED's brightness. They also give you a kit with the keyboard, very useful and the USB-C cable seems pretty durable, they give you also an USB-A to type C adapter if you don't have any USB-C port on your PC. Also, the shipping has been way too fast considering it was shipped from China (I'm in Italy).
The only flaw is the lack of a wireless option, but for this price you can close an eye for it.
Very satisfied, 100% would rebuy it again and again.
I love this keyboard because it's very beginner friendly for those who are starting with custom keyboards, or just aren't interested in deconstructing or building their own. I got brown switches and they are very creamy, I love the way they sound and everyone comments on them. The design is also very attractive. I've been using it for almost half a year now and I'm very satisfied with it. I just wish it also had a wireless option too, but hey, you get what you get for the budget
Very nice keyboard. I won't regret buying it. Only think I would say to buyers watch out for switches, I've got mine with red ones and it's not my type because it has no click when pressed and that is pretty bad for typing. I will recommend this size, it is small enough for every set-up but still has everything you need like easy to use F tabs that are good when doing something for school or research and when gaming to easier press alt+f4.
I've been using generic gaming keyboards with Outemu Reds for years and this is the upgrade I was looking for; great feel & sound, rare layout, unique look, detachable cord and fully customizable with hot-swappable switches+QMK support. It's my first time using tactile switches and Keychron's K Pro Browns feel awesome even though the bump isn't very noticable, but if I wanna try something else the option is there. The world's your oyster with this keyboard and it offers unbeatable value at 84$, highly suggested for anyone who wants to try something more premium and dip their toes into custom keyboards
