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.

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 V3 also supports third-party screw-in PCB stabilizers.

Exceptional for the price!

I had seen builds on Youtube with this keyboard, demonstrating how solid it was as a customisable base at a great price. I got the fully assembled, no knob, with K Pro Brown, and I am VERY impressed. The sound dampening and isolation is very good, with typing sounds not having any unwanted reverberations, creating a clean sound profile for very little money. The build is heavy and feels strong, and will do very well for the office where I intend to keep this build for the forseeable future.

The K Pro Brown switches are a bit of a disappointment for me though. That they are factory lubed means no spring ping, but the tactility of the switches was very very subtle, making them actually feel closer to linears than the tactiles I am used to. Thankfully, the board is hot-swappable, so after an hour's work, I have the board equipped with the K-Pro Silent Tactiles, which have much more pronounced tactile bump and significantly reduced sound for the office.

I have to commend the use of VIA software, as the instant customizability is unparalleled, and a huge benefit over any 1st party software I've experienced. The RGB effects are many and varied, and there is the ability to customize the saturation, hue and brightness of a solid colour so that you can match any other theme.

At this price, you get a silicone pad and plate foam, which is 90% of the way to premium keyboards, and the results are excellent. Big fan of this board, and can't recommend it enough. I could see the V series being used in a multitude of builds if friends or family want an introductory mechanical keyboard. The value over a similarly priced Logitech or Corsair is incomparable.

Great keyboard

I was buying this keyboard to mod it. Already bought and lubed some switches. Then it got delivered. I typed on it. I was kinda amazed, really good sound coming from the factory lubed switches. I didn't expect it to be so good. So I tried my own switches that I bought and lubed and it sounded worse. I'm totally amazed by this and switched back to stock switches keyboard and might buy another for work. Really great keyboard! 5/5!

Great keyboard at a great price

Loving this keyboard so far. Seems to be built really well, especially considering the price. Very customizable and has great features built in. Love the knob version! Overall I'd give it a 10/10

Switching from membrane, this keyboard rocks

I hate gaming keyboards, they look like rainbow-shining toys for kids and they sound terrible. Not this beauty, the design is 10x better and it feels amazing when typing. I have red switches, carbon black and without knob, because it was the only one in stock. Typing in the first days was rough, I made a lot of mistakes easily, because I wasn't used to the red switches. After few weeks, I got used to it and typing is flawless. Only downside is that it doesn't have shine-through keycaps, but I don't care really. Works on linux too without any issues! Overall 10/10, would buy again

The v-series are great entry level keyboards

The v-series are great keyboards, and the TKL layout is super useful and a great choice if just stepping down from full size. Highly recommend!
