Excellent Qualtiy

I'm very pleased with my Keychron Q6. The solid metal case is very high quality and the whole experience is very pleasing. The Gateron Pro Reds that came with the board are surprisingly good! I ordered some silent switches and ended up liking these reds better. They are relatively quiet. My only complaint is the spacebar sounds awful. Every other key sounds great. But the spacebar has a hollow sound unlike the rest of the keyboard. I would love to see keychron address the spacebar issue like insulating the spacebar from the factory or a special spacebar mold that deals with the sound better.

Amazing

I owned keyboards from different companies before this one, but as soon as you build/buy q6 it’s just over. I know that I’m sticking to this one for a really long time.

Ships from overseas

I spent a fair bit of time shopping around to find a Canadian distributor of mechanical keyboards who would have stock on this side of the Pacific, and I thought I had found that here. It was only when I got the shipping confirmation that I realized "Keychron Canada" is a Web site operated directly by the Chinese manufacturer and they have no Canadian presence other than the Web site. The product ships from Guangzhou. I feel this was not properly disclosed to me. The fine print of the Web site does mention international shipping, but does not make clear from where; I feel that it borders on misleading. If I had known the product was being dropshipped from overseas, then first of all I wouldn't have bought it, and second, I would have expected a price consistent with Chinese dropshipping. I was inclined to pay the premium retail prices of this site only because I thought that I was paying a middleman to have stock and service based in Canada.

Moments after placing the order I got a text message from my credit card company warning me about the questionable-looking foreign transaction and asking me to confirm it.

"Priority Mail" shipping turned out to mean shipping by UBI, a sketchy-looking specialist courier who are described as Australia-based but have their Web site almost entirely in the Chinese language; after doing the import formalities they forwarded to Canada Post for the final delivery. Tracking through Canada Post worked only after the package arrived in Canada.

As for the actual keyboard: the most notable thing about it is its EXTREME ABSURD WEIGHT. It weighs 2.45kg but if you think you know how much that is, you're wrong. It is VERY MUCH HEAVIER than you imagine. Although it looks heavily built, it is heavier than it looks. After a few weeks of using it I am still surprised every day by how shockingly heavy this keyboard is. I cannot comfortably pick it up with one hand. In the default configuration of the supplied rubber feet I could not move it around on the desk - it might as well have been bolted in place - and I didn't realize until getting it how often I actually want to do that. I have modified the feet with masking tape to reduce friction and can now just barely slide it around. The weight is not necessarily good or bad; it's probably better than an unusually light keyboard, but it is also quite surprising.

The keyboard is a significant upgrade from what I was using before, which was a no-name keyboard I bought from a dollar store for $3.25. The Gateron Red switches have a good feel. I was pleased to have a 100% layout.

There are many small annoyances with this keyboard. It lacks LEDs for Caps Lock, Num Lock, and Scroll Lock. The place where they would be expected is filled by four extra keys with strange symbols on them - which I was able to remap in my desktop environment to do useful things, but I would rather have the standard LEDs. Caps Lock state is indicated (at least in default configuration) by turning on the backlight around that key, but it's barely visible in a lit room and not a good substitute, and nothing like that seems to happen for Num Lock and Scroll Lock.

After a couple weeks of use the right shift key became flaky, often missing keystrokes; a disaster in typing text, where I'd be typing along fine and then realize that for a sentence or two all the capital letters were missing. Apparently fixed by swapping the keyswitches around, but not confidence-inspiring.

The "software" for configuring the keyboard first of all is a third-party product (Keychron just gives you a link to it) and second is not really software. It is a Web site, and it only works in Chromium-based browsers. The "source code" for this software on Github is source code for an Electron wrapper that just opens your Chromium-based browser and points it at the Web site. I don't have a Chromium-based browser and I cannot use this at all. Fortunately, the default configuration was good enough for my purposes; but this is not what I expect for a hardware product that after customization and shipping cost over $300.

This keyboard is taller (keys higher off the desktop surface) than I am used to, and it is not possible to adjust its nearly-flat angle. It doesn't have the flip-out legs I usually expect on keyboards, and I guess it can't, because they would break off from the OVERWHELMING WEIGHT of the keyboard.

The preinstalled keycap sets were mostly out of stock, and all featured garish contrasting ESC and Enter keys. Just to get non-eye-catching ESC and Enter keys I had to buy a full set of replacement caps. Interestingly, a whole preconfigured keyboard plus a complete replacement-cap set was still cheaper than a "bare bones" keyboard and the parts needed to make it usable. The 219-key replacement set includes some strange duplication (such as two exactly identical "G" keys, and more identical PgUp and PgDn keys than any layout could use) and I wish th...

Keychron Q6 QMK Custom Mechanical Keyboard

Keychron Q6 full size Custom Mechanical Keyboard

A Refined Piece Of Metal Art

The entire metal body is crafted with 6063 aluminum that is processed through CNC machined, polished, anodized, sandblasted, and undergoes 24 more manufacturing stages to make this solid metal piece of art that is the Q6. 

Keychron Q6 full size Custom Mechanical Keyboard

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 Q6 full size 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. 

Keychron Q6 full size Custom Mechanical Keyboard

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 Q6 full size Custom Mechanical Keyboard

You can easily customize the Q6'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.

An Epic Core Inside The Keyboard

A brand new ultra-low-power MCU Arm structure that is powerful and armed with 128K Flash to provide more flexibility for developers. The polling rate is up to 1000 Hz out of the box, which makes latency non-existent for the competitive game.

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 Q6 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 Q6 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. 

Program Q6 full size with QMK & VIA

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 Q6's top case has sharper corners to make it much more compatible with third-party keycaps.

Barebone ANSI Layout Keychron Q6 full size Custom Mechanical Keyboard

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 Q6 version fitted with factory pre-lubricated Gateron G Pro switches, a smoother travel experience is guaranteed for you.

Gateron G Pro Switch Features
All New Screw-In PCB Stabilizers

All New Screw-In PCB Stabilizers

The screw-in design increases stability and makes it easier for changes and upgrades. Precise craftsmanship makes the stabilizers more stable and less shaky. The big keys' (space bar, shift, enter, delete) typing experience is now more stable and smooth. The Keychron Q6 also supports third-party stabilizers, including Cherry or Durock.

ANSI & ISO layouts.

ISO layout is widely used in Europe while the ANSI layout is widely used by the rest of the world.

Note: If you are a European, we recommend you to purchase the "Barebone ISO” version with the corresponding ISO keycaps. The "Barebone ISO” is suitable for all ISO keyboard countries like the UK, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Iceland, etc.
