Leading product testers were delighted with the Keychron K3, recommending it for gaming, office, and mobile use. Analysts at Forbes loved its compact design. But if you prefer a bigger (96% size) keyboard, see our Keychron K4 review. Testers at Tom’s Hardware praised the wired/wireless Bluetooth design, which pairs with up to three devices at the same time. It uses a rechargeable battery that should last for about 34 hours on a single charge, per the manufacturer. Unfortunately, the keyboard doesn’t support incline adjustment, featuring a 4° incline. It also lacks a wrist rest.
Check out our Keychron K3 (Version 2) review for a model with adjustable incline positions. The K3 boasts RGB backlighting with individually lit keys. On a variant with Gateron Low Profile Brown tactile switches, experts needed a 51 gf operating force and 1.7 mm pre-travel distance to operate the keyboard. The typing quality was great and the keyboard performed quietly during experiments. However, it has a high 14.6 ms wired latency and 22.1 ms Bluetooth latency.
