Great value, 0 compromises

A great companion for starting out and to most about 90% endgame.

For the price and the build quality, you can't go wrong.
There is allot of barebones units out there that you have to piece together and spend allot of time on it.
This you just buy it, keycaps (thick PBT DSA or equilvalent recommended), strip the case, take out the thick foam and thin foam, put in some 1.5mm or thinner insulating mat, tape the mounting hole area, tape the board 3 layers, buy some decent switches (you already spent $200 on the unit).
Not much effort needed to get it to sound good.

Plates can change the sound a little bit, but mod accordingly to the switch used.

Keyboard heaven!

A little late coming the mechanical keyboard party and I now know what I've been missing out on all along!! The Q1 is a well designed and aesthetically pleasing looking keyboard. I got the mint green version with gateron phantom brown switches and the typing experience is like no other I've had before. I am studying for a Masters and needed something robust for my home office and so far the Q1 is delivering in spades. Highly recommended! :)

Beautiful, solid, easy to mod

Quality keyboard that sounded great out of the box. Easy to mod/customise to one's liking. Already trialling different switches, caps and damping materials. Via made a breeze to assign specific actions to keys. Just waiting for the Q5 to build a work centric keyboard. Well done Keychron

Switch layouts between
macOS & Windows.

Built with the Mac users’ experience in mind while still retaining compatibility for Windows devices, Keychron Q1 comes with a system toggle and an additional set of customized keycaps for both Windows and macOS systems. You will be able to save two different layouts in the keyboard, one for each system. 

Gasket-mounted design makes typing more flexible.

The gasket design provides the board with a nice, flexible typing feel and a satisfying typing sound. The Q1’s maximum flex is up to 2.5mm, which makes the board one of the most flexible out there.

Program Q1 with
QMK & VIA.

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

Keychron Q1 75% Custom Mechanical Keyboard QMK VIA

VIA is a keyboard keymap programming software. Using VIA, you can define every key and even write MACROS for the key combinations you want on your Q1. VIA supports macOS, Windows & Linux. 

Hot-swappable.

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 SMD LED lights are easy to be seen because they are facing toward the typer. It’s also good for the PBT, Cherry profile, and non-shine-through keycaps which are popular for customized keycaps.

Gateron Phantom switches.

Keychron teamed up with Gateron to create the exclusive Phantom switches. They deliver near-perfect consistency and smoothness with each keypress. Phantom switches are pre-lubed from the factory, offer less wobbliness, while increasing the switch's stability.

Note: The phantom switches have phantom light effects that allow the RGB backlight to have the switches' own case color. The red will make the backlights have more of a red lava fire effect, the blue will allow the backlights to have a more of a mysterious blizzard-like effect , and the brown will make the backlights have a light coffee color effect.

Keychron Q1 75% Custom Mechanical Keyboard stabilizers

All new Gateron screw-in PCB stablizers.

The screw-in design increases stability and makes it easy for changes and upgrades. More precise craftsmanship makes the silver-plated stabilizers more stable and less wobbly. The big keys’ (space bar, shift, enter, delete) typing experience is more stable and smooth. 

Keychron Q1 also support third-party stabilizers including Cherry or Durock.

Cable management is easy with the premium coiled cable.

Whether your computer's interface is on the left, right, or front of the desk, the premium coiled cable can be laid out in any manner.  We have also designed the coiled cables in different colors to match the different color cases.

ANSI & ISO layouts.

ISO layout is widely used in the Europe while the ANSI layout is widely used by the rest of the world.

Note: If you live in the Europe, we recommend you to purchase the "Barebone ISO” version with the corresponding ISO PBT keycaps together. The "Barebone ISO” is suitable for all ISO keyboard countries like the UK, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Iceland etc.

The deep review from Dave 2D

Note:  Dave's review units are the pre-production version, the retail version will come with an extra foam case, so the retail versions will have a total of two cases  foam installed inside the keyboard.
