Keychron K1 Version 3 Mechanical Keyboard Unboxing and Review

The Keychron K1 is a low profile wireless or wired keyboard giving you all the keys and function you need while keeping it compact. It is the thinnest mechanical keyboard you can buy.

The K1 is designed for productivity as a typist’s dream; an ultra-thin body (18mm) and switches for a great tactile feel. Compared with other mechanical keyboards, it requires less force and uses less finger travel, which reduces finger fatigue and provides an unmatched typing comfortability.

Many Mac keyboards are not mechanical. The Keychron K1 is one of the few that features MacOS function keys (F1 to F12) in a Mac layout. It can also be easily switched to a Windows keyboard layout. Keychron features a keyboard shortcut for Siri on Mac layout, and Cortana on Windows, and a screenshot button. Instead of playing finger twister by having to hold down “cmd + shift + 4” on Macs or “Windows/alt + Print Screen” for Windows to screenshot, just press the dedicated screenshot button. K1 offers a bright and bling RGB keyboard with 4 adjustable levels plus more than 18 different color effects. You can alter the color and the brightness correspond to your mood or setting.

Pricing for the Keychron K1 starts at $74 for the 87 key single LED model. Add $10 if you want the full RGB light show. A 104 key RBG K1 is also available for $94. The video below reviews the 87 key RGB unit.
