My Favorite Keyboard

I got this about 2 months ago and I love it. I bought the C2 about the same time, and while that is also great, the K1SE is definitely my favorite. It is so much nicer typing on a mechanical keyboard, but I still really like the low-profile. Especially for a low-profile keyboard, I like having the adjustment feet, so to me this is even better than the (more expensive) K1 non-SE. Another reason I chose this is that I wanted to change the layout, and the uniform-profile keycaps allowed me to do that. It was easy and it looks and feels great. I'm not a huge fan of light-up keyboards, but the one reason I can justify is to see in dimly lit situations. For that, I really appreciate the shine-through keys. Although I usually use it in wired mode (to avoid it going to sleep when I am just reading/mousing for work), when I do use BT, the battery lasts a long time (several weeks). I would add the negative aspects of it, but honestly, for me I can't think of any.

Great keyboard for a Mac user

Bought a brown Optical one last week. It has white backlight only and I don't need the light most time, so battery life is good enough for me. Now it's one week after the first full charge, and by fn+B checking, battery is still at least 70%. Bluetooth connection or reconnection is faster than my K780 Logitech keyboard. I really enjoy the typing with the low-profile brown switch, which is tactile and also smoother than my Corsair cherry red full-profile one for Windows. Plus, I don't understand why Apple removes the key for launchpad from their 2nd gen Magic keyboard, the layout and all media keys of K1SE are so brilliant to me, being more MacOS friendly. Takes a bit time to get that "microphone" key on the top right to work, though I don't use Siri much. Will be great if this can be set to mute in Zoom call. Overall, I'm completely happy with this keyboard and after long time using I might have more to share here.

Great productivity keyboard

I returned to mechanical keyboard after taking a break, the K1SE is a great "welcome back" product. It made an excellent first impression with solid build quality and flexible connectivity. I initially chose the brown optic switches, but found them to be a little light after getting used to membrane keys on laptops, I ordered early bump Mint switches and couldn't have been happier. I use the keyboard mainly for coding and occasional gaming, it does the job fantastically. On a side note, the after-sale customer service was excellent at Keychrone Australia: I had a very minor issue and they went above and beyond to get it sorted out quickly. A+ for standing behind their products.

Great look and feel

Just got the Keychron K1 SE with RGB and the brown Gateron switches on Prime Day sale, and I really love it. The large keys are stabilized well and the chassis feels quite solid. I usually use blue switches, but I bought this keyboard for use at the office, where my gleeful violent typing would have driven my colleagues mad were my keyboard loud. The brown switches are a decent middle ground, although the tactility is pretty subtle to me. The chassis feels solid and I like the aluminum top cover. Packaging is excellent. Animated RGB patterns are gaudy for my taste, but there are some more dignified patterns to choose from. This is replacing an Apple Magic Keyboard at work, which I like, but which has too little travel for my tastes and does not easily support multiple pairings. Apple also doesn't have a TKL option.

Keyboard is perfect 5*, support and supply chain is terrible 1*

The keyboard itself is exactly what i wanted, nice look and feel with TKL layout and wireless mode. I am totally satisfied with it.

BUT the support was horrible: I ordered it on 2022.01.10., got it on 01.20. and it had a defect, so a replacement needed. I made a long-long time consuming conversation (circa 25 email exchange), and I got lots of promises from month to month for a new PCB, then for a new keyboard. Finally on 05.20. I got the replacement keyboard. Since then it works totally fine. But for 4 months I had no keyboard which I was paid for...

What's the difference between the K1 SE and the K1:

 #1. K1 SE is engineered with reinforced aluminum top case plus plastic bottom case while K1 is constructed with full aluminum body structure.
#2. Added low profile Gateron mechanical hot-swappable version switch.
 #3. Armed with two level adjustable rubber feet to provide ergonomic support.
#4. Five USD less in price than the K1.
