Note: The screw heads are molded into the case, so they have a very strong grip and won’t fall out.

An Epic Core Inside The Keyboard

A powerful ultra-low-power ARM architecture MCU equipped with 128K Flash will provide more flexibility for developers. The polling rate is 1000 Hz out of the box, which makes latency non-existent for the competitive game.

Switch Layouts Between macOS & Windows

Built with the Mac users’ experience in mind while still retaining compatibility for Windows devices, the Keychron V6 comes with a system toggle and an additional set of customized keycaps for both Windows and macOS systems. You can now save two different layouts on the keyboard, one for each system.

Program V6 with QMK & VIA

With full QMK and VIA support, you can easily program and remap each key on the keyboard. The open-source firmware means endless possibilities for keyboard layouts, shortcuts, backlight effects, and more.

Programmable Knob

Designed to enhance your creative workflow, the aluminum rotary encoder allows you to easily customize your favorite keys and macros on the knob through the VIA software.

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 LED 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 users install OEM or Cherry-profile alternative keycaps on the keyboard.

Pre-lubed Keychron K Pro Switch

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

Keychron K 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, backspace) typing experience is now more stable and smooth. The Keychron V6 also supports third-party screw-in PCB stabilizers.

Very Nice keyboard

Took a while to deliver from China, but it is luxury typing. Would recommend.

Great first custom mechanical keyboard with some very minor flaws.

First of all, wowsers. My first real step into the mechanical world and it's such a nice, smooth experience. Shunning the overpriced big-name brands for lesser-known custom jobs which can do just as much, if slightly differently. But the leap in quality is huge.
Once set up and the keys swapped(comes set up for Mac), I've been relearning how to type and it's been a joy. I was using an Apex M800 from Steelseries, which was a lower-profile board, so my fingers are getting a workout with high much higher they need to lift to move around. Maybe I need a wrist rest...

Anyway, my biggest flaw with the keyboard so far is the VIA interface. But only because it's very basic regarding the RGB lighting options. I'd love to have a solid colour backlight, then have each key flash another colour as I hit it. I can do one or the other, but not both. I'd also LOVE some kind of time out/idle function which could dim/cycle the colours. The Steelseries and my wife's Corsair can do these things, easily. But I guess that's a downside to not having expensive to develop dedicated software. So one can understand.
Saying this, the RGB lighting does look great. Bright, responsive and almost twinkly. With ~20 pre-set options which can have their hue, saturation, brightness and speed altered, I'm sure there's something in there for you. This is why I dropped a single star off my rating, because the lighting options aren't quite in-depth enough for me.

I'm on a journey now to see if I can get OpenRGB to recognise the board and allow me to fiddle, but thus far I'm either lacking in knowledge or it's just not gonna work and I've not figured that out yet.

TL;DR Great board. Sounds and feels amazing. Looks great too. VIA web interface is nice and simple but could do with a bit more in-depth RGB options, but I think that is out of Keychron's hands.

Brilliant tactile, sturdy and a cool mechanical keyboard.

Enjoy using this everyday.
Good quality for money spent.
Expect at least 10 working days or more to get your hands on it! (hence 4 stars)
You will enjoy using it on a daily basis....

Great Starter!

I purchased this keyboard as it was one of the only ones I could find with the full uk-iso layout with a volume knob.

The build is mostly good with a nice heavy feel to it. I had envisioned that I would swap the switches out when it arrived and I am glad that I had planned for this. The switches were not to my liking but this is always personal preference (they did feel a bit sloppy). The key caps are great quality and have a really nice feel to them. I did plan on buying different key caps but these feel too good to change.

Although the keyboard is fairly low profile, I found that after typing for a while my wrists did start to ache but this has been mitigated by a 3D printed wrist rest.
