Fantastic keyboard and excellent customer service. I went with the browns and it has been flawless so far - really enjoy the tactile and muted keystrokes. Only downside would be that its not full metal with a rotary switch - I know the Q series exists but they arent wireless!

Ironically I left this review a little bit longer than I intended to, but my opinion of has not changed in the slightest since the day I first used it.

I swapped from a Logitech G512, which was just too large for my new desk setup with it's massive numpad that I hardly used. I decided I wanted something of a similar quality, but smaller and less reliant on software.

You'd be surprised how hard it is to find a tenkeyless UK-ISO keyboard that is pre-assembled, software free, of a decent build quality, and not about to mug you for every £££ you have.

I had been recommended Keychron in the past, so I look it up and they do not ship to the UK directly - but luckily their partner KeyboardCo does! It was out of stock, but once it came back in, I ordered it as fast as the website would let me.

It arrived with no issues, and I loved the build quality of it - was just as good as, if not better than my G512!

Now, I'm not personally a fan of the colour Keychron chose for their caps - Grey and orange on black irks me, so I changed them out for Steelseries Prism caps, which I think look pretty damn good.

If Keychron is listens to these review, please make a model of these that comes with black caps (or even better black pudding caps) because it genuinely looks fantastic with them!

TDLR - If you want a quality pre-assembled tenkeyless for a decent price, this (or the pro version if you want QMKVIA) are the ones to go for

Very nice keyboard, pairs up easily with laptops. The hot-swappable option means it's easy to set the correct keys to match Windows Mac layouts. The weight of the aluminium body makes it stable on the desk. I didn't see the need to use a wrist rest, when not using the built-in legs.

Delivered in 3 working days as promised. Good service. Thanks

The keyboard is pretty good for office use. Also, a pretty good entry level mechanical keyboard with bluetooth function. I would say the down sides for this keyboard would be the switches could be better (the gateron brown has a lot of wobble) and not the whole case of the keyboard is metal.

I switched to this board from a Razer Huntsman TE and I could not be happier. The Gateron Brown switches are much better for typing and the board itself is very sturdy and very high quality, keycaps could be slightly better however. But with hot-swappable switches I feel like I won't buy another keyboard in a long time.

Just bought my second one of these to use in work, to match one I bought for home about a year ago. I much prefer the feeling of this to the Filco I previously had - the action is smoother and I get much less fatigue in my fingers.

The one I just bought also has an improvement over the model from a year ago which has fixed a minor weak point: the lettering on the keycaps has been made slightly bolder. It is now much easier to read the keys, especially when the backlight is off, but it also looks better with the backlighting on.

have had this keyboard for just over a year now with the hot swap gateron browns and its still doing great. highly recommend

Nice mechanical keyboard. Smooth ordering and quick delivery.
Keyboard loses bluetooth connection occasionally and has to be repaired.

Super responsive customer service, quick delivery.
The K8 is just perfect for me also didn't resist and bought another K3 :).
Comparing K8 with K3 on K3 back light is brighter however the feelings are much better on K8.
If you buy K8 i suggest wrist rest to be considered as well as the profile is quite high...
Nothing than that .

Very satisfied, with KB.

A very good mechanical keyboard with RGB backlighting. That has both Windows and Mac keycaps. You can use it on up to 3 Bluetooth devices that you can switch between with a click of a button or use it wired via a USB C cable.
My only issue is that the stock keycaps paint etc wears very quickly, as least if you remove them with the puller tool. However, they of course are replaceable.

Love this thing, looking forward to doing a few well know mods to make it even better, I think it might get a set of Ducky pudding keycaps on it before long too.

The service from KeyboardCo was top notch, nothing more to add apart from thanks!

I am lazy writing reviews, but what I can tell you, great keyboard, it has great quality, it looks awesome, and it feel premium, no complaints buy it.
Ordered it at night, got it in the morning, great service.
