UK K2v2 Convertible RGB Backlit Tactile Aluminium Mac Keyboard - UK-C3
The new version 2 of the K2 keyboard exceeds my expectation, it is much more comfortable than previous version. The slope of the keyboard and integrated stand makes it more ergonomically to use. The quality of the keycaps is good with its smooth and rugged texture. I love the brown switches so far and very happy with the sound and overall tactile motion. The best feature is probably the RGB light and compatibility with the MacBook. I'd highly recommend the K2 V2 to anyone new to mechanical!

The whole order process from start to finish was a breeze. When I ordered my K2 it was out of stock, not a problem I was willing to wait. Unlike other companies I have used in the past, TheKeyboardCompany kept me up to date, and ended up delivering earlier than first expected. The keyboard itself is everything I expected, and whilst being a little heavy is a joy to use and looks great too. My one and only concern is how non standard the keycaps are should I ever wish to replace them (always an issue with U.K. iso).
Highly recommend both the keyboard and company.
I ordered the K2 aluminum w brown switches (version 1) and it's been wonderful- totally lives up to the hype for me. I find the height suits me, which considering I have fairly small hands has been a real relief after hearing reviews online. The clicks and feedback feel satisfying and have kept me motivated during these long WFH stints. Of course, works seamlessly with mac and identical in size to my 2014 MBP layout. The build quality is premium and the aluminum gives a sturdy feel on the desk that isn't wieldy. So happy to have the UK ISO which Keychron so seldom have in stock, it's been great to find a UK retailer - Keyboard Co have been great.
Fantastic mechanical keyboard, glad I was able to get it with the UK layout. First time using this site and wont be the last, fast delivery and excellent range of products.

Buying a keyboard with UK layout in or from Spain? difficult. With a mechanical keyboard? very difficult. For Mac? almost impossible.
I needed the UK layout for programming, because the symbols are better placed than in the Spanish ISO layout. The USA layout is also good for programming, but there are physical differences between the keys and it is difficult to write Spanish blindly.
Thanks to The Keyboard Company I have been able to buy it, choosing from a wide variety of brands, models and prices. And without customs problems!!
I had a little problem with the local TNT carrier in Spain and they helped me to solve it quickly with the TNT headquarters.
IN SPANISH EN ESPAOL Comprar un teclado con layout UK en o desde Espaa?, difcil. Con teclado mecnico?, muy difcil. Para Mac? Casi imposible.
Necesitaba la versin de UK porque para programar los smbolos estn mejor colocados que en el ISO espaol. La versin USA tambin es til para programar, pero hay diferencias fsicas entre las teclas y es difcil escribir en espaol a ciegas.
Gracias a The Keyboard Company he podido comprarlo, escogiendo entre una gran variedad de marcas, modelos y precios. Y sin problemas de aduanas!!
Tuve un pequeo problema con el transportista y ellos me ayudaron a solventarlo rpidamente con la central de TNT.

Love this keyboard! Feels really solidly built & the gateron browns are buttery smooth with the ever so slight tactile bump. Makes a fantastic typing experience. There are TONNES of lightingRGB presets which are nice to have there to show off. Was concerned after using a v1 about the angle but the V2 has fixed that completely. I've not experienced any Bluetooth dropoutsmissed keystrokes which I heard were an issue on the v1 as well.
Can't fault keyboardco either. The whole experience has been fantastic & customer service is very friendly. Will definitely buy from here again!
Very nice keyboard. Big fan. Tons of RGB options, Windows and Mac support, cable and battery. 3 devices. Perfect. I got the aluminium one and it feels super premium.
Keychron K2 is the best keyboard Ive ever got. It has all the details that a compact keyboard should have. The click feeling is superb. I bought it to replace two new Logitech G keyboards which both are defect. I am happy and impressed so far. The only problem is its too good to use. I instead use it as a backup now. The keyboard company is very helpful on getting this product into the UK. The communication with them is very smooth as well.
Great Keyboard, agree with most of the reviews it is a bit high but I don't do huge amounts of typing so it still fits my needs. Also excellent service from Keyboardco, I ordered the keyboard from Malta and I received it within a week it was shipped and delivered super fast! Amazing!

Excellent wireless mechanical keyboard. Service & delivery was too notch too.
100% satisfied! Arrived in less than 1 week to Portugal. Perfectly packed, will buy again :)
Great keyboard, this keyboard is a bit higher than usual but with a good palm rest it is perfect.
The keyboard is amazing, wanted the UK layout for this keyboard. Im using the Keychron K2 keyboard right now to type this review. There is no trouble when typing, perfect height for me, and the sound of switches are just great. I wish Keychron could have more UK Layout for the latest keyboard products as i prefer UK keys instead of USA keys. Definitely will get another keyboard from this website and would recommend to friends.
Keyboard is good overall but I have to use a wrist rest as it's significantly high and I had a very frustrating issue with a couple of keys inverted: the firmware was buggy. Now if the keyboard does not deserve five stars, the customer service I've received from KeyboardCo certainly does. I got notified as soon as the keyboard was available, delivery happened as expected, they followed up on the order and they helped me to solve the technical issue while Keychron were still looking at it. I know for sure where I'll be buying my next keyboard.
When I ordered the keyboard it was out of stock. The website said it would be back insotck by a certain date. A few days before the expected date I recived an email telling that the keyboard was now back instock and they will be dispatching it soon. I recieved the keyboard a day later than the expected date it was sue back in stock. I am really happy with it. It was so easy to set up an sync with my Mac. I am also happy because it came with clear instructions. I love the sound it makes as I type and it feels like I am actually typying. I don't like the flatness of apple keyboards and I prefer the raised board. Cutomer service is brillant.
As always the service was excellent - that along with the great selection of keyboards is why I keep coming back.
The keyboard itself is really very good. In no particular order these are my highlights:
* Supports the ability to connect to multiple devices - I can easily switch from my Mac to my iPad and back. * Great support for the mac and the media keys etc. * Really nice feel from the keys - this is my first set of Gateron Browns and I prefer them to the Cherry Browns on my Filco and Drevo keyboards since they feel lighter and quieter. * It has nice keyboard legs to raise the keyboard up, they are firm and hold well. * Overall it's a great looking keyboard.
The minor things that go against it are: * It lights up like a 70s disco - thankfully you can turn it off and I never really look at the keys while I'm using it anyway. * They keyboard is quite tall. The height of the case is pretty much the same as the height of the tops of the keycaps on my Drevo Excalibur, so it's a taller by roughly a set of keycaps. In practice I haven't found this an issue by that's probably down to my rough and ready typing style.
Overall this is a really nice keyboard and one of the best one that I own, it's certainly well worth recommending.

Great keyboard and top service. Thank you very much!
its a big boi. but its worth it. Got browns, on the VER 1. Be aware there is a newer version of this board out there, this is VER 1. feels great.
T. Fernandez 29/07/2020
Amazing keyboard for the Mac! The UK ISO layout works great with US International English (PC) input source, which was my #1 requirement for the purchase.
Great device and super service with good communications from the 'mail me when back in stock' right through to a polite courtesy mail asking whether I was happy with the purchase. I read most of the reviews and I must say they are all very accurate. There's no denying the product isn't excellent with great build quality but some may find the keys a little closer together at first and some may prefer a wrist rest depending on your style of typing. However, these are really down to the individual and don't detract from the quality of the product and service from Keyboard Co. I will certainly use them again.

Great keyboard love the fact that i can switch between multiple computers and the functionality of it having both windows and mac settings with just a flick of a switch. I went for the K2 Aluminium with red switches as i wanted to upgrade from a membrane keyboard for both gaming and work, the keyboard was delivered quickly and the staff at the keyboard company were a great help.
I ordered the K2 after looking for a mechanical keyboard that was mac compatible. Delivery was very quick and the service from the customer service team was excellent when responding to my queries.
I've been using the keyboard for work every day since and the experience has been very positive so far. I had a slight issue with the bluetooth connection dropping on the first day but a reset and turning off the automated time-out feature seemed to do the trick. I am loving the feel of the brown switches (tactile) and I have mine set to the white backlight (despite purchasing the RGB variant) which looks very clean on my setup.
I would highly recommend opting for the aluminium variant as the build quality is very good. The keyboard is raised quite high off the desk but personally I haven't found this to be an issue (I'm not using a wrist rest).
As a UK customer I was delighted to find this available from a trusted UK retailer, as the manufacturer website was sold out and delivery times were expected to be at least a few weeks with the virus restrictions in place.
Overall 5* service. Highly recommended.
Very happy with the experience. Received an email when the keyboard was available again (a couple of days before the ETA on the website, so I would reccomend signign up). Promptly delivered, very well packaged yet no wasteful packaging.
The keyboard is fantastic, I am super happy with it.
It has been almost a week since I received the K2 UK Brown, I've been loving it so far.
Even though I spent quite some time tracking the availability of the product, it was available for purchase as promised, even a few days earlier. The order and delivery process was smooth.
The keyboard itself is a bit high as you might read in some web comments, but I do not find it a hassle as I hover my fingers while typing. The keycaps feel a bit on the light side, but still the typing experience is great. I can't speak for gaming, but for programming and everyday typing, it's working really well.
Even though it has only been a week with a new keyboard, I don't have any wrist pains or such which is an important sign for me that it fits ergonomically to my posture.
The coaster and the nail file that came in the box were really nice touches!
I'd easily recommend this to any colleague.
Keyboard is solid! Real weight to it. I've already began battering it with some games and it's just ready to go all the time. I chose brown switches with RGB and the aluminium frame. The criticism that it's very high is true, so get a wrist wrest; I find I don't actually need it for gaming as it feels a little weird, but for typing once you get used to it, you definitely see...or rather feel the benefit. The aluminium frame ringing criticism doesn't seem to hold true in this official model and maybe was inherent to reviewer models. The writing for the Bluetooth Cable mode is really tiny, but I think instead they needed to use a different colour and then it wouldn't matter so much. Right angle cable coming out the side isn't as bad as people make out to be. One thing to note is that it's sometimes in sleep mode when you first connect it which can be confusing, so try pressing the CTRL key after changing it to wired mode once you've booted up your machine, then press the backlight changer key at the top to see if it's online. Changing keys to suit a UK layout windows machine was easy also and took a matter of minutes. Haven't tried wireless mode yet as well as using it with different machines, but haven't needed to yet. All in all, a solid mechanical keyboard finally with the layout I've always wanted (except for the delete key and have a function key instead of a mouse menu button) and the RGB backlighting is absolutely gorgeousbeautiful. Can't really fault it, so highly recommended. KeyboardCo came through as well as they were the only UK distributor to have the brown switches + UK layout + RGB + aluminium frame. Packing was great and delivery wasn't too long at all.
Excellent service with speedy dispatch.
Keyboard is great, everything came well packed without any defects. The Gateron Brown switches feel excellent with a nice tactile bump, and the keycaps look and feel wonderful.
Everyone from start to finish was polite and courteous. The stock updates were accurate and any questions raised were addressed within a day. One of the feet is a bit loose but thats more than likely from manufacturing or transit from abroad. Then there is also one keycap missing from the optional pc keys but this has already been raised and keychron will correct this in the coming weeks. Definitely going to get another board in the future.
Delivery was very quick and the stock updates were accurate. They keyboard itself is satisfying to use and feels high quality in relation to price. The keys are slightly smaller than Im used to but my fingers are adapting.
Customer service was brilliant. The emails to keep me updated on the delivery were a nice touch, plus a follow up email to ensure everything was okay with my order.
Keyboard is very nice to use. Have used multiple mechanical keyboards before, this one is the most solid one so far. Very nice feel to it and satisfying to type on. I got the brown switches, which provide a tactile and quiet feel.
The height of the keyboard could be considered quiet high compared to other keyboards. Be sure you have either a wrist rest, or ample desk space to rest your elbows. Underside legs provide great stability and typing angle to make this easier on your wrists.
If you are someone in the UK who commonly uses the right shift, it's slightly shorter, where the up arrow has taken it's place. This is something I will get used to, but has been a learning experience for my first few days of using this keyboard.
The reason I have not given 5 stars is due to the keyboard having some connectivity issues every now and then when switching between my two computers and changing between the wiredbluetooth modes. This can be sorted simply by turning bluetooth off and on again on my PC, but it's a pain to do this without a connected keyboard. My Logitech wireless mouse has never had an issue with switching PCs, I would expect the same from this keyboard. That said, this issue is trivial as once it's connected, it works great.
Next time I need to buy a keyboard, this site will be top of my list.
Service was solid, with multiple emails letting me know when they were expecting stock in.
Keyboards exactly what i was expecting. Keys feel good, some of the lighting affects are nice ( but there are some shockers and having to cycle through all them if you hit the button by mistake drags ).
Only warning for someone who hasn't used Keychron's keyboards before is the smaller keys. You'll likely be fine hitting letter keys, but if you're anything like me you'll need to embrace a lot of mis clicks going for anything around enter or backspace.
