Keychron's Mac Layout
Keychron is one of the few mechanical keyboards that features macOS media keys (F1 to F12) in a Mac layout with the same as conventional Mac systems.
It made a huge difference to the sound of the keyboard. I replaced the plate on a Q1 and on a Q2. Both sound great after the replacement, with a deeper sound.
Replacing the plate was super easy.
This keyboard is the best thing I've ever typed on. Granted I haven't explored many keyboards over this price point but compared to pretty much all "gaming" branded keyboards I've owned this trumps them no questions asked. I was glad to see the back case was filled with thick foam compared to YouTube reviews (probably updated version) and even a daughter board for the USB-C port (again not seen in YouTube reviews). I replaced the foam in the back with a piece of kilmat car sound dampening foam, and covered the back of the PCB with masking tape. These mods only took half an hour or so but the difference is incredible! Feels creamy to type on and the sound has that distinctive 'thock' everyone aims for. I think one improvement would be to offer a pre-built ISO version as I have to adapt to an ANSI layout (not a big deal but would be nice to use UK layout). Overall a quality keyboard that feels so solid and weighty you could knock someone out with it; the typing experience is a dream and the colour of this mint green one looks incredible adding a little bit of 'pop' to my desk.
I'm absolutely in love. The feel, the sound... Perfection in my opinion. I'm really happy with my purchase!
Excellent keyboard, an improvement over Q1 sound and feel wise, and as easily customizable. Even for people who do not care about customizing the keyboard, the way it comes pre-assembled is a great keyboard for everybody. But as always with some small customizations it is even better. The Keychron store provides a very good and fast service. I also bought the FR4 plate for it which makes it sound and feel even better than with the steel plate that comes with.
The only issue I have is that to get it to be recognized by the Via software you need to unplug it, start the Via application, load the q2 map file into Via and then plug it in again. That is a regression in relation to my Q1 which is recognized immediately upon starting the application. It is very inconvenient but I can live with it until Keychron fixes the issue since as I said this is a great keyboard otherwise.
