Top experts adored the Keychron K1, endorsing it for mobile use and gaming. Reviewers at Business Insider praised this device’s build quality, although it has ABS keycaps. If you need PBT keycaps, see our Keychron K8 Pro review. Analysts at Mac World loved its TenKeyLess (80% size) design. Testers were delighted with this RGB backlighting with per-key illumination.
However, this device has a fixed 2.5 ° incline and doesn’t come with a wrist rest. Check out the Kensington Pro Fit Ergo Wireless Keyboard review if you desire a more ergonomic curved model. It supports both Bluetooth and wired connectivity, pairing with up to three devices. Its rechargeable battery has a manufacturer-quoted runtime of about 38 hours.
A unit with Gateron Low Profile Red switches needed a 40 gf operating force and 1.4 mm pre-travel distance to operate. Typing was pleasant and quiet during testing. Its 13.6 ms wired latency and 43.4 ms Bluetooth latency disappointed testers. See our Keychron C1 review for a model with a much lower wired latency.
