Great keyboard and fantastic service from The Keyboard Company!

I was looking around for my first mechanical keyboard. My needs are at minimum:
(1) 65% for its dedicated arrow key
(2) Wireless (needs to swap between at least two different devices)
(3) Hot-swappable (since I'm planning for a switch upgrade later)
(4) Adjustable kickstand
(5) Cost less than 100
(6) Can be delivered within a day

I have been looking around for a while and found at least four different options: RK61, Keychron K2v2, Keychron K6, and the AKKO 8086. However, only the Keychrons fit all my checklist. To be fair, the reviews of them are not all praise, but I think that the positive outweighs all the negative (bad ABS keycaps, thicker profile).

I chose the white backlight version with Gateron Brown switch.
+ Quite compact.
+ The Bluetooth is quite good (at least for typing and regular gaming sessions, distance from receiver between 1m to about 2-3m).
+ The battery is large.
+ Extra Mac and Windows keycaps are good (even though I am only using the keyboard for Windows and Linux).
+ Gateron hot-swap with 5 feet.
+ It feels solid but not too heavy.

- The plastic feels smooth, but the edges are a bit sharp, both in the keycaps and the body (frame, kickstand). Not really sharp as in hurting your fingers, but it's not really dullsmooth. It's sharp-ish. It won't hurt you even in a long typing session.
- The ABS keycaps (especially the black keys) are.... bad-ish. I will certainly change it later.
- It's quite tall because of the thick plate. A wrist rest is a must. (Or, get an XDADSA keycaps later)
- Because of Keychron north-facing LED, you can't use Cherry profile keycaps with it.
- The physical toggles for changing WindowsMac and BTWired mode feel a bit flimsy.

In the end, I still think that if you really need something specific like me, it is still a good purchase. You might want to invest more with the RGB and aluminium frames for an extra 20, but I think that the cheapest one is already good enough.

NB:
Thank you Keyboardco for dispatching my order on time! I ordered it on Friday afternoon using the RM 24 tracking service. To be honest, I am a bit worried because it is a Bank Holiday on Monday, but my order arrived the next day (Saturday afternoon).

Excellent keyboard. I'm surprised I haven't come across this keyboard before as I buy an awful lot of tech. The main selling point for me was its ability to be used in both Windows and MacOS by flicking a switch on the side. The switch is accompanied by another switch for utilising either Bluetooth or cable connection. Complete with backlighting gives me everything I could need from a keyboard. The keys are a little loud for my liking, but it's not a deal breaker. It would have been nice to have some kind of battery icon to alert me of remaining charge while in Bluetooth mode, unless I'm missing something. Again, not a deal breaker for me. Battery life does seem to be good, though I haven't fully tested this out yet. All in all, I'm extremely pleased with my purchase. Finally, just a quick word on the keyboard.co staff. What a pleasure it's been to deal with such a dedicated and helpful company. This is how companies should deal with customers. Very professional experience. Thank you keyboard.co.

Fantastic Keychron Keyboard k2v2, Came well packaged and super quick delivery. Before purchasing spoke to a friendly guy about the keyboard who was very helpful, after placing the order rang up again as thought I might have ordered the wrong keyboard. It is refreshing to get great customer service quickly on the end of a phone call when you just want to ask a quick question. Other people have reviewed the keyboard in depth, it is excellent and has completely replaced my space grey mac keyboard which was almost double the price. I think one of the reviews here mentions that the keyboard is the same grey for all the keys (not sure if that is a previous version) but the uk layout k2v2 features the orange keys, dark grey keys and light grey keys exactly as pictured. Think as one of those people who have just sleepwalked into using amazon for everything, it is nice that I have found this company. Will definitely be buying all of my keyboards from here in the future. To summarise great phone service, quick delivery, nice follow up emails from helen with invoice and to check if everything was okay. great service. great company

K2v2 with gateron brown keys and I love it. I I am a CAD user and have a CadMouse Pro and SapceMouse Pro either side of the keyboard. This keyboard being tenkeyless is a perfect compact size allowing my arms to be 90 degrees to my shoulders. Love the caps lock light and print screen button that I have set to snip & sketch very useful. Great service from the Keyboard Company.

Great product, very happy with service

After researching various keyboards and settling on the Keychron K2, I chose the Keyboard Company as my supplier. The keyboard speaks for itself, of course it is a matter of preference, but for me, it catered for all of my needs; namely the UK ISO keyboard layout, Gateron Brown switch mechanical keys, white backlight, and MacWindows compatibility. This 5 star review is for the Keyboard Company... The order process was simple, the customer service was faultless, and delivery was fast and tracked. I will, without question, recommend the Keyboard Company to anyone who is considering buying a new keyboard; and I will look no further if I ever need to purchase one for myself in the future.

First time trying out Gateron brown switch and it is surprisingly nice! The keycaps are not very friendly to those with long nails though and the spacebar is a bit wobbly!
  Matthew  25/03/2021
Very quick delivery, very happy with the quality of the keyboard!

Instructions in the box are good, LED effects are quite nice. I was able to swap the keys out for the British (PC) mac keyboard language to match my windows machine, so I can swap between the devices. It seems to connect with bluetooth quite quickly too.

Only thing to note, is that if your machine sleeps less and just spends it's time with the screens turned off, it will likely keep the LED's lit alongside the USB power for a bit. But that's true of my old logitech keyboard also.

Very happy with my purchase.

I couldnt be happier with my new keyboard. It delivers everything promised in terms of build quality, function, looks, and its such a pleasure to use. Ive been using computer keyboards since the first PCs in the very early 1980s, and the K2 V2 has a wonderful nostalgic look, feel and sound. Dealing with the Keyboard Co was a real pleasure. Highly recommended!

The K2v2 is a great keyboard that's a pleasure to type on with the Gateron Brown switches. These switches offer satisfying tactile feedback and aren't too noisy.

I'm a software developer, and have found that this keyboard is the perfect balance of being compact in size but still providing all the keys required for writing code efficiently (home end, arrow keys, delete). It took me only an hour or two to get comfortable typing with the majority of the keys on the K2v2, however after a week I'm just about getting accurate when hitting the home end keys to the right of the return & up arrow keys and the delete key (above the backspace key). I'd say once your muscle memory becomes familiar with the key positions that it's a dream to type on and doesn't feel at all cramped despite the compact footprint.

The keyboard comes with spare keycaps for Windows Mac, plus grey versions of the accent keys (esc and the backlight key, of which there are also included red accent versions). Also included is a USB C to A cable for charging (or non-Bluetooth usage).

I'm using it via Bluetooth with my Surface Pro (Windows), it was seamless to connect and I've had no issues with connectivity since.

I love the monochrome aesthetic having switched out the accent key caps for the grey ones. There are some very funky backlight patterns including ones triggered on keypress and more passive ones such as a gentle wave effect. There's also the option to adjust the brightness or turn off the backlight completely.

There are only two small issues that I can find with this keyboard. First, when plugging in to my Surface Pro to charge, the laptop complains that the keyboard is trying to pull too much power, and disables the USB port. This is a minor inconvenience and I've opted for charging in a USB plug socket instead. Second, for other Bluetooth devices I own, the battery level can be seen in the Bluetooth & other devices Windows settings screen. This is not the case with this keyboard, however the small battery indicator light does flash when the battery level is getting low.

Overall, this is a lovely and compact keyboard, and those minor niggles don't budge it from five stars. Thank you to The Keyboard Company!
