Well built and a delight to use

Compared with my old (and much cheaper) generic mechanical keyboard, the Q3 is an absolute delight to type on - it feels silky and at the same time solid. And the fact that it weight an absolute ton (!) helps it stay resolutely in place on my desk while I work, instead of gradually moving around. The layout was also easy to configure to my preference, including a better backlight scheme (plain, static white!). Works well with both Windows and Linux.

Heavy duty - shame about delivery process

Negative first : The delivery service/company is terrible. Slow, confusing and really disappointed to see China is where it comes from. WAY over priced that is for sure. While I was specifically looking for a cable keyboard, I can certainly see how many people would like it to also have wireless option as well. Perhaps a little dongle in the USB-c port?
Software seems a bit buggy, annoyingly I seem to only be able to access it via a webpage?

Positives: The keyboard is nice. Not even had it for 24 hours yet but it is a joy to type on. Love the colours/lights. The keyboard is really heavy, and this provides a "solid feel" to it. I would have preferred an ever so slight increase in size to increase the platform you press on the keys just a tiny bit.

Feedback:
I would suggest making this in any other country apart from China. Japan is known for high quality manufacturing (look at their cars, computer gear and cameras!). Change your delivery company because this A17 or what ever they were called, are terrible. It is 2023 not 1923.

Top quality keyboard - SW lacks - missing wireless support - delivery is atrocious.

Let’s get it out of the way. The delivery is horrible. It took more than two weeks to deliver. Yes, it comes from China (something that is not clearly stated), but you are paying more than £30 for it. That amount of money should definitely do better and ensure delivery in a few days. The tracking system is poor and the support online is even poorer. They answered providing me the link (i already had) and said to keep on waiting. That sort of delivery should be free.
Back to the keyboard, it is superb and worth the heavy tag price. I love the feeling, the sound, and the keycaps. It is super sturdy and heavy, like a brick block, so be ready to do some heavy lift weighting. If you think that you will move your keyboard all around maybe look for a lighter option. I ordered additional keycaps, but the ones included by standard feel much nicer and I did not change them just yet. The light colors are so nice. On the downside, there are not many lighting options to choose from. The software is very good to configure the keyboard, but it does not offer flexibility for the light effects and colors. If you compare the Logitech software for the G-915 (My other beloved keyboard), that is a great piece of SW providing lots of flexibility with infinite color and light effect configurations. The presentation is top-class. The box, the included tools, cables, everything is premium quality aligned with the price you are paying and the expectations.
Something missing is Bluetooth support. A keyboard this top quality should have the BT option included by default. Yeah, that requires battery and implies connectivity issues but that is something I miss comparing it with my Logitech G915. It also has a secure low-delay wireless link by USB dongle.
In summary, it is a lovely (pricey as well) keyboard. Maybe not for everybody but absolutely if you are up for a sturdy robust elegant top quality mechanical customizable keyboard, you might love this one. SW is limited and wireless support is missing. Be aware you will suffer pain during the delivery. I guess that is something the company should improve ASAP as it is easily done and a very common complaint in all reviews.

Double-Gasket Design

The Double Gasket Design is a new innovative structure in the industry. In addition to the gaskets on the plates, we added silicone pads between the top and bottom cases to significantly reduce the sound resonance between the metals and reduce the noise of the impacted metals. This design allows the keyboard to maintain the flexibility of the gasket structure and improves the overall typing sound.

Get the Q3 keymap working on VIA

 To get started, please follow the steps: download the appropriate keymap JSON file below, open VIA, turn on "Show Design tab" on "Settings" tab, and drag the JSON file into the “Design” tab on VIA to get the Q3 keymap working on VIA

Hot-swappable.

The hot-swappable sockets are mounted on the PCB, so you can install or change the switches without soldering. The PCB supports both 3 pin and 5 pin MX mechanical switches.

South-facing RGB LED Lights.

The south-facing RGB is designed to better illuminate the keyboard backlight from the typist’s angle with the premium non-shine-through PBT keycaps installed. The south-facing RGB is also free from interference when the user installs Cherry-profile alternative keycaps on their keyboard.

Pre-lubed Gateron G Pro Switch

By optimizing the switch mold, the G Pro switch wobbles less than a standard mechanical switch and feels smoother on each hit. Plus, the factory pre-lubed process on all the G Pro switches (excluding the clicky ones) will no doubt ensure the best smoothness at your fingertips when typing.

Gateron G Pro Switch features
All new screw in PCB stabilizers

All New Screw-In PCB Stabilizers

The screw-in design increases stability and makes it easier for changes and upgrades. Precise craftsmanship makes the stabilizers more stable and less shaky. The big keys’ (space bar, shift, enter, delete) typing experience is now more stable and smooth. The Keychron Q3 also supports third-party screw-in PCB stabilizers.
