After getting my Keychron K7, it got me interested in the world of Keyboard modding. So happen that my brother also got interested and he bought for himself and me the Keychron Q1 (USD$169 / S$229) together with the Keychron Keyboard Wooden Palm Rest (USD$25 / S$34).
I chose the Fully Assembled Carbon Black Base with Gateron Phantom Blue switches. Fully assembled because it is just US$20 difference, and I don’t have any existing switches that I can use.
I think Keychron K7‘s battery life is bad. Using it for about 8 hours a day, it could not even last through a 5-day work week on a single charge.
I disabled the auto-sleep mode because, for some reason, when the keyboard wakes up from sleep, it refuses to connect back to my MacBook Pro via Bluetooth.
It has been a while since I bought a keyboard, and recently, I have seen all the hype about Keychron keyboards.
So when Keychron started a Kickstarter project for the Keychron K7 65% Wireless Mechanical Keyboard, I backed it immediately.
