I have the Keychron K8. It's a good board for intro to modding, but in terms of the board, the stabs are trash no matter which ones you buy, The build quality is not as good as other boards which is why I'm switching pretty soon.

Brown Switches Don’t Make It

Call it 3.5 stars. Originally I purchased the aluminum/RGB K2, but found three shortcomings with it. Pros and cons of the K2: + compact but still with full-size “laptop-like” keyboard. Right-most column with Lighting/PgUp/PgDwn/Home/End/Right arrow rather resembles an HP Spectre. + The aluminum beze...

Uncomfortably Thick

Aesthetically pleasing, but not the right fit for me. Ultimately, I had two issue with the keyboard: 1. Too thick for me to type comfortably on. 2. Inconsistency in key feel and travel. Recommendations for point # 1: - I have seen review videos that take this keyboard apart, and there seems to be a ...

Hi, i'm looking for a new keyboard and the Keychron K8 was the one to catch eye, because of the potential of bluetooth(not sure how much I’m going to use that) and the hot swappable switches.

I wanted to like this keyboard, the bluetooth connectivity issues ruined it for me

I bought the K8 for the sole purpose of going wireless with my mechanical keyboard and it struggled so much over bluetooth with my 2018 MacBook pro that was sitting right next to. The connection would be inconsistent and sometimes delay keypresses or have many repeating keysssssss. The keyboard itse...
