UK Keychron K2v2 Bluetooth RGB Backlit Tactile Mac/PC Keyboard - K2-B3-UK
Delivered on time and keyboard is great. My first mechanical keyboard and a great introductory one as well as being considered one of the best mechanical keyboards available at the moment - especially for the Mac and especially at the price.
I was also sold on being able to get the UK ISO layout to match my other Mac keyboards and not have to relearn the position of some of the keys.
Id recommend for sure
Fast efficient delivery by TheKeyboardCo, so no complaints there!
In terms of the keyboard itself, it's excellent! Having used Apple's Magic Keyboards for the last 10 or so years, I wanted to try a mechanical keyboard and the Keychron K2 gets good reviews all over the net.
And I can see why. It's a lovely keyboard and I doubt I'll be switching back to the Apple Keyboard.
The only thing to be aware of is that the RGB backlighting is pretty pointless. I bought the RGB version as opposed to the white backlight with a vague thought that perhaps I'd use the coloured backlighting to highlight function keys or whatever.
I knew from reading reviews online that you couldn't configure the RGB patterns, only use the ones built in, so it wasn't a key consideration in my purchase.
But in practice the backlighting seems pretty pointless to me as it's not visible in normal ambient light. Its very visible in low light conditions but then if you worked in those kind of conditions you'd soon strain your eyes. So for me at least, the RGB backlighting is pretty pointless.
I couldn't think of a better keyboard to enter de mechanical keyboard world, it is beautiful and really stands out on my desk, giving it a unique character. I would definitely recommend buying it along with the palm rest, as the keyboard sits normally higher than a regular one, and the palm rest does make a difference.
Also I placed my order with the Keyboard Co. and received in 48 hours with Royal Mail as they said, no issues whatsoever and pretty straight forward communication with them.
Great keyboard to type on, and having adjustable backlights ly useful as well as fun to play around with.

This keyboard is absolutely amazing if you were to be using it on an iMac, in my opinion I preferred to use the brown switches instead of the blue one as its more convenient and better to use rather than the blue as the blue makes too much noise as I'm typing and it can be an disturbance to someone that's why I went with the brown switch as its more subtle too. Furthermore, this company is amazing as they were very informative with regards to my order and they were keeping me up to date regularly about it and also the delivery was extremely fast which I was very happy and pleased about. I would also recommend this product and shop if you were to be purchasing other peripherals for your system. Would definitely shop purchase products from you guys again, I really appreciate it, THANK YOUUU⭐️
Great to find a Mac wireless keyboard with proper keys. Lovely keys and fits nicely on my desk. I like the size and layout but there are a few significant drawbacks: 1. Once the Mac has gone off line the keyboard no longer communicates with the computer. That means to type in the password I have to keep my original keyboard nearby to start up the Mac - very frustrating 2. To save battery life the keyboard needs to switch itself off and then takes a few keystrokes to start up - I have many opening sentences missing the first three characters 3. Shortish battery life before needing a charge
No problems at all, delivery was insanely quick and the keyboard is magnificent. Having a Mac keyboard which is small and wireless really makes my desk where I work look nice and clean so I can focus more on my work. No problems with the keyboard company, would definitely recommend!
My first mechanical keyboard, switched from an old Corsair which had way more keys than I needed. Wanted to downsize and this is perfect for me. Was a little worried it would be too small as I am a 3d modeller and use a lot of hotkeys but after a while I have found it doesn't affect my work in any means at all.
Brown keys feel really nice with a great sound, very satisfying. Great selection of keyboard backlit colours.
Would highly recommend to anyone. If you're on the fence about purchasing this, take the plunge and do it!
I had a specific need for a keyboard. It had to be compact but I still needed dedicated function keys thus elimating a 60% keyboard. As I am also switching use between my home computer and my work laptop. There aren't too many options available and a friend recommended Keychron to me. I'm happy with quality for the price. I would need to spend a significantly higher amount to get this specific type of keyboard at a higher quality. The bluetooth just works and I have not experienced any dropouts. I have a Corsair K65 wireless which has become a paperweight as I could never get it to connect. I like the fact that there is no software which makes it perfect for a work laptop with restricted administrative access. I would recommend purchasing a keyboard wrist rest as it quite high and can become uncomfortable. The RGB options are more than enough for me. The only slight negative is the spring noise but I've never used Gateron or brown switches before so that might be a trait of the switch. Definitely recommend buying this keyboard.
Great keyboard. Well built, the switches feel great both wireless and wired mode work with no issues. Ordering was easy and prompt delivery.
Recently just purchased this and all I can say that it is absolutely amazing to use, no problems at all whatsoever. In addition, they were really informative with the order tracking and it was shipped to me very quickly, cant thankyou enough. This keyboard is perfect in all as its just the right one, perfect to type with and not to noisy or annoying. Would definitely recommend this product, especially if youre using it on a MAC. Will definitely be purchasing from you guys again

This keyboard is excellent to type with and very easy to set up. The interoperability with the mac is what made me purchase and I dont regret it at all. The service from the keyboard company was just as high of a standard!
Great product. I am typing my review using the keyboard.
Really good service from The Keyboard co. The 'board itself is really lovely, I'm absolutely in love with the Gateron Brown switches, and I've come from clicky Cherry MX Blues. One thing I've noticed is one of the switch-stems actually squeaks when it rubs against the housing, but other than that it's fine!
This is a really really good board, and I'm glad I managed to find the UK layout version.
Excellent keyboard. Needed a keyboard as my Mc Book Pro keyboard is a total pain, yet the laptop is fine. This is an excellent solution. Keyboard Co have it spot on, easy ordering, good shipping and worked straight out the box, proper old fashioned plug and play functionality.. Great job, thanks

This was my first mechanical keyboard purchase - I went for the brown switches after doing a bit of research as a good starting point. Im delighted with this - it really reminds me of an old BBC keyboard and its really enjoyable to type with. The build and keys are v high quality, and the backlight is excellent. Im really delighted with this purchase and Im hoping itll see me through for a few years. Id definitely buy keychron again.
This a superb keyboard. I went with the brown keys which are in the mid range of clickiness. The keys are very responsive and typing is switch and tactile. Takes me back to the old days when I used to own a BBC Micro. Really nice touch with the LED light up keys. There a lot of patterns to lighting to select from and you can also switch between wired vs BT connectivity. The keyboard is super compact and fits perfectly on a small desk. I also like the ability to tilt the keyboard at different angles. Highly recommend this product.
My first mechanical keyboard with brown switches. This is an excellent keyboard, there are other brands out there but this is bang for your buck! UK ISO is difficult to find and they sell quick. Grab yours now while you can.
Delivery and customer service is first class. Higly recommend the product and Keyboardco.
been using it for a few weeks now and so far so good. Taken a while to get used to the compact size having moved form a full size Windows layout keyboard. Just a bit of muscle memory training to do. Love the RGB options.
Keyboard Co. were great. Really quick and plenty of updates of on order status. Would recommend
A very nice keyboard feels very nice to type on and i have reached a personal best in typing speed with it(brown switches) Only down side is its a little high so u will need a palm rest.
Fantastic entry keyboard to the world of mechanical keyboards. Very comfortable and satisfying to type on. The way it can quickly switch Bluetooth connection between computers is magical!
My second mechanical keyboard for an iMac, and the best one yet. Far superior to the one I had been using (made by a different company). This works perfectly with Mac OS, is easy to install and use. It's an ideal size, compact and smart. Does what it supposed to do without a hitch. Very impressed.
My first mechanical keyboard, absolutely phernominal, would recomend!
Superb build quality, that's apparent right out of the box. The RGB options for the keyboard are stunning and add a little flair!
It's really tall, as is mentioned in other reviews, so a decent wrist rest is definitely recommended. Maybe this is the perfect keyboard for someone using a standing desk? Anyway, typing feels really nice with brown switches and not fatiguing (coming from using a horrible 2017 MacBook Pro keyboard, eugh!).
The key layout is good, I'd maybe have left out the page up page down keys next to the return key but I'll get on with it :)
I'm still getting used to the board, but based on its many other merits, it definitely deserves 5 stars at this price point. A solid purchase!
This is my second K2 keyboard. One for home and one for work. Excellent keyboard and excellent price! Very fast delivery from The Keyboard Company and unbeatable customer service.

This keyboard is near perfect. It packs some incredible features for such a price. I've been looking for 65% ISO layouts (as I use a native european layout) for quite some time, but almost all 65% keyboards are ANSI for some reason. So I was pretty happy when finally found the K2. Even though it was already sold on the official site, their support helped me find a reseller who still had a few units left.
Size I was a bit worried about the height at first, but it's actually not an issue. The overall 65% size is also perfect. Price Way below average market price, what not to love? Switch Cherry MX Brown, which is what I was looking for. Great click feedback. Keycaps I bought this keyboard as the base for a custom keycap set I've had already ordered at the time, so I haven't used the original keycaps much. They are nothing to write home about. They get the job done, but they're too thin and smooth on the surface for my taste. Possibly the weakest component for me. Extras Bluetooth and Battery: great to have, I can detach, and use my keyboard with my TV as well; Switch to toggle between MacPC mode: also great as I use both OS'; Detachable USB-C cable: yes!; Backlight: it's a great feature, but not that important for me as my custom keycaps don't support it.
I use AHK to custom bind some extra glyphs and keys I've lost when I swapped to 65%.
All in all, I LOVE this keyboard, it covers everything I need perfectly. Goes perfectly well with the keycap set I've been using:
Fantastic keyboard. Very responsive and is great to type on. I bought this with the brown keys which I am very happy with (I did a lot of research beforehand!). This is my first mechanical keyboard so although I have nothing to compare it with I think I have struck gold first time especially as it is set up for Macs out of the box. Very happy customer!!
I have used the Keychron K2 for about a week now. No complaints and I'm happy with it. I am a first time mechanical keyboard user so have little reference though. I have the gateron brown switches and they seem to be the right balance between feedback and noise for me. Switching the keyboard between 3 different devices (Windows laptop, iMac, iPhone) all works very smoothly. After a week it is still on the same charge (and should still last for a few more weeks I believe). I was worried about the height but it actually doesn't seem to bother me much as I don't lean my hands on the desk while typing). What does bother me a bit is the cursor/home/end/del/pageup/down area, but that's just because my muscle memory hasn't figured it out yet I think (but if they had more spacious version of this keyboard around I would go for that). I was glad to find this keyboard at KeyboardCo and not to have to get it from Keychron directly, price was right, ordering was simple and delivery quick. I will visit you guys first for future keyboard needs!
I had outstanding support and help in choosing and leading upto this keyboard becoming available. As a Mac user in the UK, options seemed to be quite limited, so given the relatively low cost of this keyboard, i decided to take a punt, and buy one.
The board isn't perfect, so let's get that on the table right away. The keycaps in particular feel rather thin and light (and cheap) ... but when the entire board costs less than a set of high end keycaps, this is perhaps not a huge surprise. They're not 'terrible' or 'horrible', but they don't feel great.
The features of this board however are very impressive. I got the RGB version, and there are enough 'patterns' to keep you amused (if that's your kind of thing). I've personally found a low 'glow' of a solid colour to be my preference, and adjusting brightness, colour etc is all simple.
The board is also 100% compatible with the Mac. Each key works as you'd expect it to, so much so that my MacBook doesn't seem to even recognise it as a different keyboard (it doesn't appear as one in the list like my other mechs do). So flawless use for Mac if you're looking for that.
I got the Gateron Brown switches, and they are fine. I'm no switch expert, but they're not a disappointment over Cherry keys that i'm more familiar with.
The board is (for me) way too high. I know its been a consistent commentcriticism of the K2 since its ANSI launch, and i absolutely need to use a wrist rest to make it comfortable. Hovering (if that's your thing) i guess is fine, but i couldn't do that for a sustained typing session ... so factor that into your buying decision, because even in its inclined setting, you can't use the board easily without a wrist rest ... perhaps unless you have fingers like spiders legs and wear an XXXXL glove size :)
So would i recommend the K2 ... in a word, yes. If you are a Mac user especially if you're a UK Mac user. If you are a real 'Mech Head', you're not going to find this comparable to anything like a custom board .. but you're also not being asked to pay that price for one. So at the price ... i think its a great buy, and comes with best in class customer service from Keyboardco !!
This is my first mechanical keyboard and I am very happy with it. I have been eyeing this model for a long time now and I am so glad I finally bought it. I am also super glad to actually have bought the ISO layout; I almost bought the ANSI one!
I am loving the compact layout and the feel of typing on a mechanical keyboard is hard to beat. I was never a fan of RGB lighting but the options are great and having a light glow is a great stealth option.
Great keyboard and great service from the Keyboard Co!

Good first keyboard for anyone just getting into mechanicals. The height often comes up in reviews, and many advise using a palm rest. But the height will not be an issue for anyone using proper typing technique (that is, with wrists straight, hands hovering), and failing that, a rest isn't going to help much. If you can't be bothered to hold your hands correctly, then stick with the Apple magic keyboard or something similarly low-profile, such as Keychron's K1 (which, sadly, is currently not carried by Keyboard Co).
Its a brilliant keyboard and the brown switches are a lot quieter than my other mechanical keyboards.
The light show it puts on is great.
A great keyboard and great value
My first mechanical keyboard. Very happy with my decision overall - very few keyboards fit my requirement of 65%TKL, ISO, RGB, wirelessbluetooth, and PC+Mac compatible. Brown keys are perfect for me. The Keychron K2 does sit very high and I'd advise a wrist rest to complement it - I went for the Glorious Stealth TKL wrist rest and it works well. Keyboardco were fantastic and I will be using their services again. Thanks a lot. H.A.
Bought the Keychron K2 two weeks ago and i have to say that it's a super cool and solid keyboard of high quality. The lighting effects are awesome and make typing in the dark become an unreal experience! Got the brown Gateron switches, which just feel nice also after hours of typing.
Only little drawback is the keyboard's height, but this can be easily overcome by getting a wrist rest.
All in all an awesome keyboard!
