Keychron Keyboards Article Review- K3,K6,K8
"The Keychron K3 Ultra-slim is a mechanical keyboard with all of the benefits of a small footprint and low-profile design, while retaining the satisfying typing action of much larger gadgets."
"It comes in either white or RBG backlights, with a choice of Gateron Mechanical or Keychron’s own Optical switches, in a range of options depending on whether you like softer, clickier or more resistive typing action."
"And if switch variety is your thing, the Keychron K3 spoils you for choice. The company will offer three Gateron low-profile mechanical switches (red, blue and brown), as well as six home-grown Keychron optical switches (white, red, black, brown, blue and orange). "
"There's a lot to like with the Keychron K3, especially if you want something slim that won't take up much space when you travel."
The Keychron K8 is the mechanical keyboard for Mac that (almost) has it all - by Alex Blake @digitaltrends

"That bump is great for writers, programmers, and anyone else who spends hours every day typing, as it gives feedback to help you avoid thumping your fingers on the keys too hard and making them “bottom out.”
"The K8 is configured in a “ten-key-free” layout (I have the U.K. version), which means the numpad of a full-sized keyboard has been lopped off (most laptops are ten-keyless)."

"The Keychron K6 aims to give you the best of both worlds. It’s a 60% keyboard, but with the dedicated arrow keys and some navigation keys added back in, so it’s a 65% form factor, built on an aluminum frame."
"When it’s being used in wired mode, the K6 delivers full NKRO, while when used wirelessly, you’re still looking at 6KRO – which with the programmable keyboard, should be enough to ensure you don’t get your spells caught in your key-smash."
"If you’re looking for a highly customisable low-profile mechanical keyboard that’s both light and durable, the Keyron K3 is a great option."
"What’s most interesting is that the K3 offers a hot-swappable optical switch system, allowing you to quickly swap from one switch to another, offering a level of customisation unmatched by practically any other keyboard available right now. "

It’s also the world’s first hot-swappable, low-profile, optical-switch keyboard, so you can hot-swap every switch to customize your typing experience without soldering, just pop the switch in and it’s done. With a mechanical or optical switch version, the two versions of the K3 make it suitable for home, office, light gaming or anything else you’re looking for in a keyboard that helps you get the job done.
