It's my first mechanical keyboard and I enjoy it a lot.

Initial reactions from trying out my new Keychron K2-V2 computer keyboard from The Keyboard Company (modelRGB Backlit Tactile Aluminium):

Itll take a bit of getting used to, and its Gateron Brown switches are a little noisier than expected. Id envisaged the sound to be a tad more metallic than the distinctly plastic click-clack. However, thats OK.

Deskchair height is going to be fairly important when working for longer periods, because the keytops are up to 4cm taller than the keyboard on a MacBook.

Also the shortcuts seem to be different. My normal `command-` and `option-` key functions seem to have been swapped. But going into System Preferences, I can reverse that. No need to download Karabiner or anything. (I suppose I might, if I needed to do anything more exotic.) `control-` behaves itself, so thats fine. (UPDATE: I found that although the keyboard came with the Mac keyset installed, the switch on the left side of the keyboard was set to `WindowsAndroid`. So I have corrected that, and restored the `System Preferences Keyboard Modifier Keys` to their normal settings for the Keychron.)

The other lovely thing is that using `caps lock` to change the keyboard language layout (called Input Sources in System Preferences), which I think I remappped already for the standard keyboardit just works! I can toggle between UK English and whichever of my other language layouts I last used.

When I do want to type in upper case, the `caps lock` key backlights in red, nice and conspicuous.

I need to get used to having a `del` key again, rather than the clunky `fn-backspace` that Apple has forced me to use all these years, especially since the `fn` key is down below my right pinky rather than my left. And I now have `page up`, `page down`, `home`, and `end` keys. The first two are probably going to be the most useful.

Already, I find myself in touch typing mode again. I havent done this much for years with the MacBooks squidgy, low-profile buttons. They never provided enough tactile feedback for me to be sure of my finger placement. Nor is there sufficient travel in the Mac keys to avoid the occasional inadvertant multiple keypress. With the Keychron every press is individual.

And as I go further, Im finding the plasticky clack-clack of the keys surprisingly soothing. My partner will hate it, of course, so Ill need to keep the study door shut. Im glad I chose the Gateron Brown keyset rather than the louder Blues.

One other benefit from using the K2, or indeed any separate keyboard, is that my wrists dont brush the trackpad and trigger wild swoops of the cursor while Im typing. The number of times I have found myself inserting text in unexpected places!

This is not the first bluetooth keyboard I have tried. I also own a Logitch K380, which is slim, compact, portable, lightweight, and also connects to up to three devices. Its a nice piece of kit, but its big dawback lies in the somewhat cramped spacing of the keys. Theyre nicely shaped, and they dont leave me in the same doubt about where my fingers are as the MacBooks keyboard does. But I have large hands, so the full-size layout of the Keychron is a big deal. Its why I decided to take the plunge and upgrade.

So here we are, typing on one screen via Bluetooth while charging from a different computer on USB. Does this enter text into my code editor on machine 2?no. Nor does it when I flick the switch from `BT` to `Cable`. Maybe its an issue with settings. Im not going to go into it for now, because I need to get some work done soon.

But before I sign off, a few words about the fancier backlighting options. Im not a fan. What bugs me most is that its not clear what mode Im in until I type. If I inadvertently hit the backlighting key, going back to my preferred (boring) setting is a tedious, stop-start, hit-and-miss affair. In my opinion, the backlight key is in the wrong placesurely it is a less-used function. But its exactly where the more frequently used `del` key should be, right in the top right-hand corner.

The service from Keyboard Co? Very good. Kept me in touch, packaged well, and delivered on time. Id happily do business again.

Outstanding customer service and speed delivery!

The typing experience on keyboard is amazing. Comparing the low profile red switch keyboard I used by, the typing speed increase by 40 words per minutes. I would describe the feeling is between cherry brown and red with slightly tactile feedback and quieter than the brown. Personally, I am in favor of the PBT keycap, it might take some time to get use to default keycap. The is by far one of the best mechanical keyboard I have used! I will give it a five star if it is PBT keycap.

This is the second K2 I've bought from Keyboard Co, and the features it offers are pretty unique, having an ISO layout, Mac & Windows layout options (extra keycaps and toggle switch on the side), and it's USB-C and Bluetooth as well!

The only slight downside for me is the choice of switches; the only tactile option is the Gateron Browns, which aren't very tactile at all IMO. The hot swap option is only available in the US layout, which means changing the switches involves resoldering ~85 switches and voiding your warranty. The Aluminium version is also more of an aluminium frame around the edges of the keyboard, rather than a full alu base. Not surprising given the price, and the frame does add some weight to the thing, but the base is still hollow plastic.

Obviously none of that is Keyboard Co's fault, and their service has always been impeccable. Fast dispatch, quick delivery, responsive and helpful customer service. Wouldn't buy a keyboard from anywhere else!

Love the swift service Keyboardco provided, and the product is excellent, fulfilling all my requirements and needs for a keyboard.

All the reviews are true: the keyboard is solid quality, minimal, perfect; the service is terrific.
  Anonymous  17/05/2021
Excellent quality keyboard and great customer service.

The slightly larger format than a 60% keyboard with all the additional function keys, media keys and a full separate set of arrow keys make this extremely easy to use vs other 60% keyboards I've used in the past. The aluminium frame makes the keyboard feel very weighty and sturdy.

Gateron Brown switches are great with a relatively mild and smooth actuation bump compared to cherry browns. However, the only problem I have is that space, enter and backspace keys have a fair bit of keycap wobble. The stabilisers on these keys very clearly have too much lubricant within the mechanism which makes them feel quite mushy.

They keycaps are of great quality and the typing experience is excellent. Would highly recommend both the Keychron K2V2 and the KeyboardCo.

Really love this keyboard. Nice form factor and also includes additional keys that most standard 60% keyboards remove.

Package included all the keys I needed to convert it from a mac layout to a pc one as well as a good quality key puller. Its also nice to find a good quality UK layout instead of a US one that most mech-keyboard companies make, though it makes it a pain to find proper uk key caps.

Biggest issues I can find with it is the annoying rgb back light controls to set up and that it forgets what I had it set at when I power it down. Though I just turn it off tbh so it isnt really an issue for me.

Ive been looking for a mechanical keyboard for a while now, but found it hard to understand a lot of the associated jargon. I ended up buying from this site because of how clearly explained it is.

Shipping was very fast, and I have no doubt that any questions would have been answered just as speedily.

The keyboard itself is excellent, could not have been easier to set up and the light effects are so pretty. The aluminium frame means its still light without compromising quality, I have no doubts about being able to carry this in a bag (with a protective case, of course).

So I have been tempted to join the world of mechanical keyboards for some time, probably mainly down to the amount of content on YouTube. Having watched a few reviews I took the plunge and went for the Keychron K2 as I wanted the Function keys for when I work in AutoCAD, otherwise I probably would have gone for the K6.

I am very happy with the look and build of the keyboard. It's taking a bit of getting use to but that is because I have mainly been using laptop and low profile keyboards for the last few years. I may consider adding the wrist rest once I finalise my desk setup.

I elected to go for the aluminium frame and Gatron brown switches. I had no experience of mechanical switches but as I am quite a heavy typer I thought the extra actuation force would be the best to go with.

Pairing the keyboard with my laptop, iPad and Pixel was a breeze. I really like the fact I can have it linked to 3 different devices and can easily switch between them.

The service for Keyboard Company was great. Very quick processing, despatch and delivery of my order, you can't ask for much more.

I held off buying this for so long and shouldn't have! The quality of this product is only surpassed by the customer service at Keyboard Co.

Everything about the K2 oozes class, from the packaging to the user experience. You do get what you pay for

The best keyboard I've ever used. I wish I had bought this sooner.

Keyboardco's customer service is brilliant
