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.

This is my first mechanical keyboard and is being used for office/productivity/programming. The quality seems superb, with a very solid build. The Gateron brown switches offer nice feedback and while they are definitely not silent, they are not *too* clicky. In terms of ergonomics, the keyboard is high at the front edge, but I've so far managed without a wrist-rest. The backlighting is not very visible in daylight, but has been nice at dusk or later - and it adds a bit of colour to the home office! Bluetooth worked fine with iPad and laptop, although I'm currently using it wired. Overall, this has satisfied my curiosity about a mechanical keyboard without spending another 50% on some other brands!

I was looking for a mechanical keyboard that has ISO layout and Mac support. So, the options were very limited. I came across K8 on youtube reviews and ordered it through Keyboardco (As Keychron does not ship to Turkey). Shopping experience was very good with Keyboardco. I received the keyboard in about 2 weeks and works perfectly.

Being an Apple Magic Keyboard for 7+ years, it is a little hard to get used to a thick keyboard like K8 but I think I can overcome this issue pretty quickly. Original keycaps look and feel fantastic. Backlight brightness is more than enough. There are no issues with bluetooth connectivity. It was so easy to pair with my mac and there is no delay at all.

The keyboard is a great purchase and love it. Of course, looking at different keycaps :) Thanks for a great service

The Keychron K8 is a solid option for a mechanical keyboard in a proper UK ISO layout, as it seems there isn't many these days. I went with the Gateron Brown switches and have since replaced the keycaps and added foam to the keyboard for a more suppressed sound as it can sound a bit tingy because of the empty space when stock. The keyboard has all the key buttons and has a great feel when typing. Coming from a Razer mechanical board, this feels great!

The service from KeyboardCo was outstanding as well, and they made a last minute change to the order very quickly. Would highly recommend.

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.

I upgraded to this keyboard from a Logitech G413, as I wanted to have a fully wireless setup with a TKL keyboard.

The keyboard itself offers really great value for money and is a nice starting point from where you can build an upgrade (foam mod, lube the switches, change the keycaps if wanted) as it's easy to take apart and work on it.

I'm using it on the PC and iPad and works great both on Bluetooth or in wired mode.
Initially, I was a bit concerned about the lag that the keyboard would have when used in Bluetooth mode, but so far haven't had any issues with it.

The only downside would be the lighting, as it's not bright enough, however, it's not a deal-breaker and I'm happy with how it looks stock.

The keys themselves feel a bit soft, but it's to be expected with Gateron Browns. I've ordered new springs, switch films and some lube, so I'm going to mod it as I please.

Overall I would definitely recommend it and I'll give a thumbs up to KeyboardCo as well for processing the order in a timely manner.

Absolutely love it! For the price, this is probably the best Mac keyboard you'll find. Easy to set up and use. KeyboardCo were very helpful in making the purchase.

First mech keyboard purchase and I am really happy with it. I spend a lot of time at the computer for work and up until now have been using a Logitech rubber dome, also UK ISO which I can't do without. Moving to the Gateron Brown switches has made typing seem smooth and effortless. The Keychron itself is clearly very well made and solid, and so far the bluetooth has been faultless. I'm not a huge fan of RGB in general, so have that turned off.

I have had to purchase a wrist rest due to the height of the keyboard, but that's the only remotely negative point I have about this keyboard.

KeyboardCo have been great as well, would highly recommend for fast delivery and good service!
  Anonymous  29/01/2021
Fantastic keyboard, cannot fault it. Its quite high so I find it needs to sit behind a wrist rest, but in terms of design, quality, size, functionality and looks, it is the best Ive ever used. It also weighs a lot, which is reassuring and a refreshing change from cheapo plastic keyboards. Not used Keyboard Co before but will be returning due to exceptionally good purchasing experience!
