This has been discontinued and replaced with the K1 SE (TKL) and K5 (Full Size).
The Keychron K1 is an ultra-slim, aluminum wireless mechanical keyboard with self-contained switches for easier typing in that Magic Keyboard style with the clicky feel - all in one clean, minimalist design.
The 18mm ultra-slim body contributes to the sleek design of K1, which meets your desktop aesthetics perfectly. The K1 keyboard works with macOS, iOS, Windows, and Android.
Compared with other mechanical keyboards, it requires less force and uses less finger travel, which reduces finger fatigue and provides an unmatched typing comfortability.

Not a great first keyboard.
If you’re looking at this keyboard because you type well with laptop chiclet style keys, don’t. They gap in between switches are quite big and other differences make it harder than laptop keyboard to type on. However, this is still a 4 star because it does what it does. Would have liked to see hotswap PCB though, maybe as a V5
Loved the ease of international purchase
Good, reliable product. Just what I expected.
Keychron K1 keyboard Linear RGB version
Like the compactness (TenKeyless) and the varied RGB backlighting. Also prefer its low profile vs many that are high profile. So this keyboard does not require a palm rest. But need to switch on backlight because the font on the keycaps are not bold enough to see clearly w/o light especially for old eyes. There is no Ctrl-Break key. If you need this, you will have to use a software to trap another key combination like Ctrl-F12 to send Ctrl-Break. Battery will last about 5 days before needing to charge based on using the keyboard 7 hours a day. Most of the time I use wired. Overall satisfied.
Great Low profile keyboard
This is my first mechanical keyboard is it turns out to be exactly how it supposed to be, packaging was perfect with ever intact inside the box. It’s not as tactile as I’m expecting it to be but can’t complain because i chose k1 over k2. It’s a must if you’re into apple ecosystem, works perfectly with my mac and ipad.
