About this deal

This being my first mechanical keyboard, I honestly didn’t know what to expect but man as soon as i heard the first sounds of the typing experience and the feel, I knew I’d made an amazing purchase. Thanks to the Keyboard Co for getting me the keyboard in literally 2 days and cheaper than anywhere else. I'm also usually suspicious if a sites reviews are consistently 5 star - but I genuinely recommend both this keyboard and keyboardco. It has Bluetooth connectivity, so you can pair it to a wide variety of devices, and you can keep your setup wire-free. The minimalistic design of the K2 V2 complements the MacBook and adds an elegant touch to my work setup (I don’t have a work setup, but it would be a great addition to yours).

But, even if you’re not one of them like me, then K2 V2 has you covered, with some subtle backlighting options. I'm a software developer, and have found that this keyboard is the perfect balance of being compact in size but still providing all the keys required for writing code efficiently (home end, arrow keys, delete). The K2 is available with white backlighting or RGB backlighting, and it's available with Gateron Red, Blue, or Brown switches. The hot swap option is only available in the US layout, which means changing the switches involves resoldering ~85 switches and voiding your warranty.It took me a couple of hours to get used to it, but now I don’t know how to use my MacBook’s keyboard again. Just like any other mechanical keyboard, the K2 V2 is beefy and quite hefty, giving a sense of durability.

Overall, it has better build quality, higher quality keycaps, and customization software, which the K2 (Version 2) lacks. The V2 has a 65% ultra-compact layout with QMK/VIA support, which can offer you endless possibilities of customization and meet your needs in different situations.At Keychron, we were motivated by the desire to create a mechanical keyboard that is versatile and affordable, we’ve penetrated these core concepts throughout our product line while providing settings to meet individual needs. UPDATE: I found that although the keyboard came with the Mac keyset installed, the switch on the left side of the keyboard was set to `WindowsAndroid`. It's a small, 75% compact keyboard that has a function row, Page Up/Down, Home, End, and arrow keys.
