    I got the hot swappable version. Everything is fantastic, works like a charm on mac and windows. Got brown switch. Awesome typing experience. One complain I have is the visibility of black keys printing. Its very difficulty yo read the black key labels. White keys are super crisp to read but I have turn the RGB on to read the black keys. It consumes a lot of battery. I have to order some replacement keys as black keys are almost not usable for me.

  2. Abhishek Shukla (verified owner)

    I got the hot swappable version. I very happy. Typing experience is like a breeze. Simply Awesome
    Next I am looking for set of K2 V2 key caps non swappable. I like the that color scheme more than white and black.

  3. Hari Om (verified owner)

    Used it for couple of days, till now it’s an amazing keyboard. Seamless connection with Windows and Linux. Haven’t tested the mac mode but should work. And the battery, well the time will tell.
    There are complaints online regarding the legends on the black keys, but looks like they were exaggerated, the legends on the black keys are a bit less clear than on the white keys but they are perfectly readable and look nice without or without the backlight. It’s not a deal breaker, at least for me. Tho I believe keychron can ship it with spare white replacement of these black keys? An all white keyboard will look nice too.
    Overall a great keyboard to buy.

    Super fast delivery and a fantastic quality hot-swap keyboard.Super happy as its my 1st step into the mechanical keyboard world.

  5. sayantan (verified owner)

    Awesome keyboard. specially a RGB mech keyboard for mac is something we dont see often, using it for couple of days now. keys are clicky and smooth to type, will surely love working using this keyboard, thanks keychron. 🙂

  6. Phani (verified owner)

    Simply Awesome. If we get additional wireless dongle along with USB & Bluetooth. Need to improve the logistics and courier service as well to tune the end user delivery experience.

  7. Phani (verified owner)

    Amazing Keyboard.Recently ordered my second unit as I was so impressed with the keyboard performance.Keep going Keychron . I would recommend you to concentrate on accessories pricing,which is a major concern for me being a pro buyer.

  8. (verified owner)

    I’ve recently purchased the Keychron K2 V2 Hot-Swappable keyboard. My keyboard has Red switches so it’s comparatively quieter and smoother.
    I like the board but the colourway isn’t something I’m fond of. I would have preferred a matt black colourway option as well. Even the Keychron grey looks nicer than this.
    Other than that, the keyboard feels amazing.

  9. rajpanchal243 (verified owner)

    Amazing board! Switching between two laptops is seamless and the response time is awesome. Love the gateron red keys and rgb light. The only improvement needed is if we get an additional wireless dongle along with USB & Bluetooth, it would have been a cherry on the top.

  10. David Thomson (verified owner)

    I didn’t receive the keyboard plastic cover for dust protection. Mainly I purchased this keyboard for that only.

  11. Ram Krishan (verified owner)

    Writing this review on the very first day I received the product, so it’s not a long term review, but more like a first impression. The first think to keep in mind is that you’re getting the same keyboard in US for around 6.6k so most of the reviews are based around that price, but we all know the heavy taxation in India already so nothing new.

    This is my first keyboard with brown switches, the last one was blue ones from amazon for 2.5k, so that was a cheap clicky keyboard and very noisy. I’m loving the new buttery smooth typing experience, but when people say that brown switches are clicky then they’re lying ( but you don’t need the click imo, at least I don’t since I need to do a lot of typing during the meetings with a mic on). The RGB settings are good.

    Works great on Linux and many action keys too were working out of the box. Overall 5/5. Love it.

    One last disclaimer: when I brought it, I was unable to find a single wireless ~75% layout in India from any reputed brand, so my options were limited and it may not be the best valueForMoney product to buy when you’re buying it.

    Keychron K2 V2 – Hot-Swappable !!! A master piece in itself I must say. Marvelous. 5 Stars
    The form factor, the build quality, the feel, the materials used are totally superb and high quality.
    I went with the Red switches but I think Brown switches will give you more precise typing experience as red switches are linear and very very smooth.
    Its very sturdy and the RGB light effects are superb you wont get bored changing the light effects.
    You can type whole day on this keyboard and your fingers wont get tired at all.
    But a palm rest is needed as the keyboard has little more height due to mechanical build.
    Best mechanical keyboard in this price range in India.
    Connectivity and awake from sleep is super fast, you can connect upto 3 devices at a time
    Default MacOS layout was a plus for me, you can toggle to Windows mode if you are using it and also has keys that you can replace to suit the Windows layout
    Must must buy if you wann try and get an entry into mechanical keyboadr world.
    This will last you for years considering its build quality and hot-swappable feature
    No seconds thought if you have the budget go for it you wont regret the decision

    Luckily got K2 (Hot-Swappable) Version 2 brown Switch. Delivery was quick and on time. Keyboard has been fantastic so for in use. Thanks Keychron for making available this . Looking forward with other Accessories and version to be available here soon

  14. Aditya Shrotri (verified owner)

    I’ve had this keyboard for about 2 weeks now and I must say it is not at all a disappointment. I did not find any Imperfections in the product I bought the red switches and I regret it as I would’ve preferred browns for better typing experiences but they are hot-swappable and that is very good but still, these are one of the best reds I’ve had the opportunity to experience. Overall I think nothing ill of this product at this price point its a damn good purchase and personally, I wouldn’t go for the metal frame the plastic one is just fine! Great Product.

  15. APOORV CHAUDHARY (verified owner)

    Nice features, and super build quality.
    – One suggestion, wakeup from sleep when using with Bluetooth is slow and keyboard always misses a couple of initial keypresses when it wakes up. Firmware is not open source otherwise i would have tried patching the issue. Cay Keychron try implementing a keystroke buffer and buffer the keystrokes while bluthooth connection resumes and then send these initial keystrokes to PC.

  16. Kaushal S (verified owner)

    I’ve had the aluminium hot-swappable version with blue switches. As someone who enjoys the tactile typing experience that the blues provide, this has been very fulfilling. The keyboard is solid, well built, and has absolutely no flex. The 2 stage legs have good angles and I’ve been using the keyboard without a palm rest without any issues. The RGB lighting is an awesome aesthetic feature to have. The lettering on the black keys are slightly harder to read at some angles, but touch typing and using the backlighting solve any issues.
    Cleaning the keyboard is a breeze with the included keycap and switch pullers included. Battery life has been great, and it charges up quite fast. Works when connected to a powerbank as well.
    As a mac user, the options for non-apple keyboards that are mac-compatible are very limited. This Keychron K2 is an awesome product, and complements the great Apple build quality well.
    Hoping other keyboards from Keychron are released soon.

  17. Karthik Sekar (verified owner)

    I purchased the hot swappable version with red switches (which are butter smooth and quiet), the RGB is great, the stabilizers are well lubed. Switching between devices has never been this easy.

  18. Mukund Bajaj (verified owner)

    The Keychron K2-V2 is an absolute delight. Very good typing experience and the build quality looks supreme as well. I ordered the Hot-Swappable K2-V2 (RGB). The experience is definitely an upgrade compared to the membrane keyboards and I can totally experience this while typing this review from the keyboard itself!

  19. rushikeshkoli3 (verified owner)

    Received the keyboard today. Best one. But did not receive the plastic top for cover.

  20. Suman Satpathy (verified owner)

    Initial impression;
    1) Full marks on the stabilizers, especially when compared to other mechanical keyboards available in the market. Minimal rattle. Really appreciate for this.
    2) I have opted for Gateron red switches. It is smooth and produces kind of poppy sound.
    3) The board feels hollow, so some key press does not sound too good.
    4) The function keys are not illuminated in dark, only their secondary functions are illuminated.

  21. Surya Parkash (verified owner)

    This is my first mechanical keyboard and I’m absolutely loving it. Build quality is so freaking amazing. I really wish more models of keychron comes to India.

  22. Mrinal Dubey (verified owner)

    Love the experience, would definitely recommend to anyone who wants a mechanical keyboard.

  23. Sarthak Vyavahare (verified owner)

    Got the hot swappable one, mine was with brown switches because i like the tactile feedback. Overall experience is good, i m able type faster than my previous keyboard. RGB takes the keyboard onto another level.

  24. Pradipto (verified owner)

    Great Keyboard, feels so much better than typing on the cheap mechanical keyboards.
    Just few points though:
    1. The dust cover was missing in the box. Which is shown in all the unboxing videos on YouTube.
    2. Also the box had no info about the hot-swap version. It was all about k2v2 normal edition.

  25. sohamgandhi (verified owner)

    Quite happy with the purchase. The typing experience is amazing. I was not sure if the white-black color scheme would be appealing, but having used it for a month, I prefer this. I got the red switches which sound relatively quieter. I wanted to try K6 for it’s compact size but got this one as I needed the delete and the function keys. Note however, it is heavy and therefore may not be as convenient to carry as the K6.

  26. iamgauravpal (verified owner)

    This is my 2nd mechanical keyboard and it is amazing compared to the last one.
    Great build quality and battery life is also superb. You can check my full review of Keychron K2-V2 (Hot-Swappable) version here –

  27. Subash Sahu (verified owner)

    This is the best keyboard for the price and the customer service for India is probably the best.
    I placed my order for the k2 v2 hot swappable and i received it with in 4 days (note i live in a small town) and when i opened the box i didn’t received the transparent dust protection cover then i contacted the customer service and they literally said we will send you,
    Even big companies like HyperX and Logitech doesn’t even come close i have experienced all.
    If i can i would have given a 10 star review for the keyboard and for the service.

  28. csaraf (verified owner)

    This is my first step in to the world of Mechanical Keyboards and this is one of the best mechanical keyboard that is available in India at this price to start with. I am enjoying the feel and experience I am getting while using this keyboard. I am a windows user. I am using this keyboard in my day to day programming being a software developer. This keyboard has certainly increased my productivity as I am enjoying typing on this keyboard. The battery backup is excellent. I have charged only once since I bought. Writing this review with my Keychron K2 V2 (Hot Swappable) RED Switch.
    Kudos to Keychron for bringing Mechanical keyboard experience to India.

  29. (verified owner)

    Thoroughly impressed with quality of keyboard. Also great support from Keychron India team. Using it for a month and now I loving it so far.
    Planning to buy a K8 for office too once I see some discount offer.

  30. Sandeep Singh (verified owner)

    Really liked the keyboard ; the feel of it just feels awesome and it gives you that premium vibe. I got the hot swappable version of the keyboard in motive for maximizing the product usability (in case any key stops working you can easily replace the switch rather than getting a whole new keyboard) and it feels a good keyboard to be using in long runs. Looking forward to long working/gaming sessions with this one.

  31. tabish (verified owner)

    Excellent keyboard with solid finish and quality. While I use it with macOS and Windows, found a bit annoying toggling between. There must be OS auto detection and accordingly keys should settle down to required layout, instead of switching through the selector switch. Secondly, right shift key is shorter then regular Apple Keyboard, for those switching from Apple KB, it’s tricky. I will choose K8 Pro next time, and would recommend to go for 80%, the K8 Pro, would be easy to handle if you switching to such a keyboard for the very first time, and willing to give up shine through key-caps. Black & White theme looks great, but will try changing black with Gray someday. Keychron should consider supplying PBT key-caps in this model. Rest everything is amazing with this KB…
