Doesn't work with my work computer

The keyboard feels solid, but I could not use it with my computer for work.

Promising product, poor service.

This is my second Keychron keyboard, and it is quite nice. However, the Bluetooth function was not working when it arrived. Despite several rounds of troubleshooting with Keychron, they determined that the PCB needs to be replaced. When I asked to return the keyboard for a refund, I was told that I would need to mail it to China with tracking at my expense, which would cost more than half the price of the keyboard. I have requested the PCB now, which will take weeks to arrive, and I will have to do the labor of swapping it out myself. Next time, I would not purchase directly from Keychron and instead use Amazon, as their customer service is much better. The product itself is good, but their service is very poor if anything goes wrong.

a fast flat mechanical keyboard

A reasonable compromise for those who want a fast, lightweight, low profile wireless keyboard, while still enjoying some of the customization options, back-light effects and charm of a mechanical.

I had mine shipped with the optical brown switch set, which is very good, but I found that swapping out the switches for the optical banana switches provided more satisfying tactile feedback for typing.

I find the K5 to be quite a bit noisier than the Q series keyboards, but that's a matter of personal taste. It is quite pleasing to type on and gets WPM scores comparable to a fast rubber-membrane type keyboard.

Overall the build quality is excellent, as one would expect from Keychron, but the lightweight aluminum housing did arrive a little warped (possibly damaged during shipping) causing it to be a little wobbly on a flat surface. Easily remedied with a couple of inexpensive stick-on vinyl bumpers/feet, which also dampen the noise level. Furthermore, the keyboard does not have extendable feet for angle adjustment, like the K10 does. It is just fully flat. Again, easily addressed with stick on vinyl bumpers for feet.

Also important to note that the K-series does not allow for the full customization options available on the Q series using the VIA software; so there is no setting up macros or reassigning keys with the K5, although some basic config tweaking is built in.

So in summary, if you want just a super fast, flat, low profile wireless typing machine, the Logitech MX Keys might be a better option for a similar price point. If you want the full mechanical keyboard experience, then pay a little extra and go for the excellent and rock solid Q6 model with the knob instead. But if you want a little of both worlds, the K5 might just be right for you.

The K5 has included keycaps for both Windows and Mac operating systems.

A Full Size Ultra-slim Wireless Mechanical Keyboard

Comes with low profile mechanical switches and hot-swappable optical switches for a superior typing experience on the full-sized, minimalistic K5 mechanical keyboard.

FEATURES

ULTRA-SLIM

Measuring at 18mm thin, the K5's thin aluminum body has a slight incline at the base to provide maximum ergonomic support. Compared to other mechanical keyboards, it requires less force, less travel distance to reduce finger fatigue, and provides more typing comfortability.

COMPATIBLE WITH ALL DEVICES

With just a slide of a button on the side panel, you can multitask without missing a beat by connecting the K5 with up to 3 devices via Bluetooth 5.1 and switch between your laptop, tablet and phone seamlessly. You can also connect the K5 to your computer with a type-c cable.

K5 Layout

Compatible for both macOS and Windows. Keychron is one of only a few in the market that comes with a Mac multimedia keys layout for Mac enthusiasts (Check high-res keycap layout and size).

Full Size

Comes with a 104 key full size layout included number pad that offers convenient access to all the essential keys* for Mac and Windows included the dedicated Screenshot Key, Siri (Cortana) Key.
*Num Lock works with Windows OS only.

Mechanical Or Optical?

Available in Gateron mechanical and Keychron optical low profile switch to elevate the typing experience with a more slimmer and subtle look, the K5 provides an excellent typing performance, whether you prefer linear (Red), clicky (Blue), or something in between (Brown, Banana, Mint).

Low-Profile Mechanical

Durable and ultra-slim low profile Gateron Mechanical switch with a 50 million keystroke lifespan to provide an unrivaled tactile responsiveness. K5 was designed to boost your productivity yet meets your desktop aesthetics perfectly. Classic clicky tactile or quicker response, for office or personal gaming, the Gateron low profile is the way to choose.

Low-Profile Optical

With the MX-styled stem housing and 0.2 ms ultra-low latency, these light actuated switches are crafted for typists or gamers who want to type at lightning speed with a 70 million lifespan much greater than industry standards.

The Banana and Mint switches comes with an early tactile bump of every downstroke like those Panda switches, that’s the main difference between the Banana/Mint and the Brown switch. More add-on switches.

*Low Profile Keychron Optical version keyboards is NOT compatible with any Low Profile Gateron mechanical switch, vice versa.

HOT-SWAPPABLE

You can easily hot-swap every low profile Optical switch in a few seconds to customize your typing experience on the K5 without soldering.

*Hot-swappable feature is available for low profile Keychron Optical switch version only.
*Low Profile Keychron Optical and Low Profile Gateron mechanical version keyboards are NOT compatible with any normal profile mx style mechanical switch.
