For a beginner in the hobby, I 100% recommend this keyboard. It’s the perfect introduction to custom keyboards and silky smooth switches.

Great keyboard, bluetooth would have been nice though

80% TKL is the best size in my opinion, this is one heavy keyboard that I wouldn’t bring around, but is a great for a fixed work station. I love the knob. I purchased Keychron Yellow Pro switches as all the other ones I was interested in were sold out. Great volume even in an office setting.

Would only suggest that they make this wireless in the future.

Keychron Q3 - the best keyboard I have ever used

Honestly if you are considering buying this keyboard, just do it. I have used a variety of mainstream gaming/workplace "high end" keyboards from all of the consumer brands. The difference is night and day - I will never go back. Shipping time to Canada was extremely quick compared to what I expected.

For reference, I spend half my day typing up emails, code etc. This is absolutely the best purchase I have made to improve my daily quality of life.

I picked out a Q3 with the clicky Gateron G Pro Blues, and honestly I love the sound and feeling... but I needed something a bit stealthier as a parent who likes to type once the kids are asleep. My order also included the Kailh Midnight silent Pro switches and OMG it was stupid simple to switch them all out.

Now I can type without fear of waking everyone up, and the keycaps are just the absolutely best feeling in the world.

I think I'm spoiled by the keycap profile now, will be hard to use anything else!!!

Keychron Q3 w/ Knob (Shell White / G Pro Brown)

The Keychron Q3 Shell White with Knob is a great keyboard that offers more freedom than my previous one with Razer Synapse 2, thanks to its QMK/VIA support. When I replaced the keycaps I had to add a small piece of tape on each end of the stabilizers to fix the spacebar, as the ends of each stabilizer didn't go all the way in and the spacebar would pop out when pushed hard on 1 end (not a big problem and even without tape would've worked fine). Overall, it's a solid and attractive keyboard. The build quality and sound are really good, and it has a great weight to it. The only downside is that some keys (mainly larger keys) feel a bit mushy due to what I assume is over-lubing, especially the shift keys. Also shipping was 15-20% of the cost, rip.

Please note that the knob color may be slightly different with the case (the blue and grey only) as these parts are manufactured separately.

Refined Metal Art

The entire piece metal body is crafted with 6063 aluminum that is processed through CNC machined, polished, anodized, sandblasted, and undergoes 24 more manufacturing stages to make a solid metal art on the desk that is the Q3.

All-Around Customizable Keyboard

To build a fully customizable keyboard, we designed every component easily assembled. Therefore, you can customize and adjust each component you want.

Keychron Q3 80% TKL Custom Mechanical Keyboard

Double-Gasket Design

The Double Gasket Design is a new innovative structure in the industry. In addition to the gaskets on the plates, we added silicone pads between the top and bottom cases to significantly reduce the sound resonance between the metals and reduce the noise of the impacted metals. This design allows the keyboard to maintain the flexibility of the gasket structure and improves the overall typing sound.

Programmable Knob

Designed to enhance your creative workflow, the premium rotary encoder allows you to easily customize your favorite keys and macros on the knob through the VIA software.

Keychron Q3 80% TKL Custom Mechanical Keyboard

You can easily customize the Q3's knob to your desired key or macro commands such as: zooming in/out, adjusting screen brightness, brush size, volume, selecting video clips or photos, or backlight hue.

Setting the macros for "zoom in/out"

Using the knob as "zoom in/out"

OSA Profile Double-shot PBT Keycaps

For the new double-shot PBT keycaps, we built a new profile. It has a similar height to the OEM profile and has an SA-like shape. We named it the OSA (OEM spherical angled) keycap. The PBT keycaps will provide excellent oil resistance, enhance the type feel, and prevent the legends from fading out.

Switch layouts between macOS & Windows

Built with the Mac users' experience in mind while still retaining compatibility for Windows devices, the Keychron Q3 comes with a system toggle and an additional set of customized keycaps for both Windows and macOS systems. You can now save two different layouts on the keyboard, one for each system.

Program Q3 with QMK & VIA

With full QMK and VIA support, you can easily program and remap each key on the keyboard. The open-source firmware means endless possibilities for keyboard layouts, shortcuts, backlight effects, even the knob, and more. A brand new ultra-low-power Arm structure MCU which is powerful, and armed with 128K Flash will provide more flexibility for developers.

Keychron Q3 80% Custom Mechanical Keyboard QMK VIA

VIA is a keyboard keymap programming software. Using VIA, you can define every key and even write MACROS for the key combinations you want on your Q1. VIA supports macOS, Windows & Linux. 

Hot-swappable.

The hot-swappable sockets are mounted on the PCB, so you can install or change the switches without soldering. The PCB supports both 3 pin and 5 pin MX mechanical switches.

South-facing RGB LED Lights.

The south-facing RGB LED is designed to better illuminate the keyboard backlight from the typist's angle with the premium non-shine-through PBT keycaps installed. The south-facing RGB is also free from interference when the users install OEM or Cherry-profile alternative keycaps on the keyboard.

Note: The Q3's top case has sharper corners to make it much more compatible with third-party keycaps.

Pre-lubed Gateron G Pro Switch

The Optimized molded switch with more precise positioning and less wobble will undoubtedly improve the feel at your fingertips. With the fully assembled Q3 version fitted with factory pre-lubricated Gateron G Pro switches, a smoother travel experience is guaranteed for you.
