Great Board, Great Price

I bought the Barebone Knob | Carbon Black and this board is awesome. Paired with some Gateron Milky Yellow Pro switches and a nice, yet affordable, PBT keycap set this keyboard sounds so nice and it feels so much more luxurious than my previous keyboards (this was the first custom). The plastic feels substantial and the knob really precious and sturdy. You also have 3 different heights you can choose from which is pretty convenient.

No board is perfect even if it earns a more than deserved 5-stars like this one.
- My first criticism is the spacebar stabilizer being a bit scratchy although I'm sure you can fix that with a bit of lube.
- This isn't much of a complaint regarding Keychron but more towards Via. I'm a bit disappointed with the fact that you can't choose individual colors for each key using VIA.
- It took more than expected for the keyboard to arrive. I might blame YunExpress a little bit more but still.
- Finally, the switch to switch (sorry for the confusion) between Windows and Mac, which is located next to the USB-C, feels pretty cheap and raddles quite a bit. This is probably my biggest complaint regarding the product itself. That being said the fact that this is the biggest problem yet I don't even see or touch that switch very often just speaks to how much I like this board, I can't recommend it enough.

Awesome build quality

I got the keychron Q3 with red switches and I love this keyboard.

The build quality is really good. The case is heavy so it doesn't shift. Also, the keys are super responsive which is nice overall but especially if you don't have a lot of strength in your hands. The keycaps are easily removed with they included keycap puller. The same goes for the switches. I don't think you can easily break the switches bit if you do: They can be easily replaced. Another thing that amazes me is the quality of the included USB-C cable. It has a premium finish and feels sturdy. You don't typically see this with keyboards. It's a nice touch.

I haven't yet tried to customize the key mappings but the VIA tool (that you can launch from your browser looks really easy to use for customizing the key mappings). If you're using complicated key combinations in vim or vscode I can recommend taking a look at the VIA tool.

The one downside I think is that the keyboard has 4 layers for different key mappings, but you can only use 2 at a time because it can switch between a mac and a windows layout. Maybe you can use all 4 through QMK, but I haven't tried that yet. I would love to be able to do that.

All in all, a really well made keyboard with a ton of options for customization.

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, and 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 V2 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.

Program V2 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, 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.

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, backspace) typing experience is now more stable and smooth. The Keychron V2 also supports third-party screw-in PCB stabilizers.
