Product testers lauded the Keychron K8 Pro, approving it for gamers and programmers. Testers at Tom’s Hardware loved its metal construction and double-shot PBT keycaps. Reviewers at ZDNet adored its TenKeyLess (80% size) construction. It has adjustable incline with positions at 4°, 8°, and 10.5 °, but it lacks a wrist rest and has a high-profile design.
Check out the Keychron K7 review for a low-profile model. This device boasts RGB backlighting with individually lit keys. Connecting through either a wired USB cable or Bluetooth, this model pleased experts. It boasts three-device Bluetooth pairing and has a rechargeable battery with an advertised runtime of up to 300 hours.
The typing experience was great, but these particular switches are noisy. Testing revealed that all keys are macro-programmable, and a model with Gateron G Pro Blue mechanical switches required a 57 gf operating force and 2.3 mm pre-travel distance to operate during testing. This model has hot-swappable switches. It has a so-so 11.2 ms wired latency and 22.1 ms Bluetooth latency.
