Dual-mode connection, support QMK/VIA open source key change-keychron K5 pro dual-mode mechanical keyboard is not too good!

Do you know the low-axis mechanical keyboard?

Compared with our common mechanical keyboards, low-axis mechanical keyboards are niche products, so many manufacturers do not like to launch such products. Another important thing is that the price of low-axis keyboards is not cheap, but there are still users who have a soft spot for low-axis keyboards. What I want to share today is a low-axis product--keychron K5 pro dual-mode mechanical keyboard. This keyboard is perfectly compatible with macOS and Windows dual systems. It supports customization, not only can replace the axis body by itself, but also supports QMK/VIA open source Remodeled, isn't it excellent. Next, let us take a look at this low-axis keyboard, I hope you will like it.

Next, let’s learn about the Keychron brand information. The Chinese name Kechuang Technology (Shenzhen) Co., Ltd., referred to as Kechuang Technology (Keychron), is a private enterprise focusing on production, design and sales of high-end peripheral products. It was established in In 2020, headquartered in Shenzhen, Guangdong Province, the consumers are Mac and windows system users and programmers, as well as e-sports and office workers.

【Appearance value】

The packaging of the keychron K5 pro dual-mode mechanical keyboard looks very textured. The overall use of laser fonts (different colors at different angles) outlines the panorama of the keyboard and the brand logo.

Family portrait of keychron K5 pro dual-mode mechanical keyboard: keychron K5 pro keyboard body, key puller and cap puller, data cable, manual and switch body introduction card, and 6 win buttons, yes, you did not dismantle it wrong, install it on the keyboard What is the mac layout keycaps.

Let’s first take a look at the appearance of the keychron K5 pro dual-mode mechanical keyboard. I have to say that the designer’s aesthetics are getting better and better now. The visual impact of gray with black and red keycap embellishment is very good. The 108-key layout can be said to be very comprehensive in use scenarios. Of course, if the 98-key design is launched, I think it will be even better.

The size of the keyboard is 420×120×23mm, and the weight is 720g±20g. The keyboard is not heavy, but it is still very heavy in the hand. The battery capacity of the keyboard is 1550 mAh, and the battery life is more than 35 hours after being fully charged, so don't worry about the battery life.

The keychron K5 pro dual-mode mechanical keyboard adopts the same Dell layout as the Mac keyboard, and the original keycap of the keyboard is the MAC chart keycap, and also independently sets the screen capture function button, which can capture the screen with one key, greatly improving office efficiency.

The keyboard uses Bluetooth 5.1 wireless connection and supports type C wired connection. The official information is that it supports both Mac and Win systems. If you are not used to Apple's original keyboard, this one is definitely suitable for you. After all, the original Apple keyboard feels hard to describe.

The two shortcut switches of the keyboard can switch between dual systems, and can also change the connection mode (Bluetooth and wired). In the middle is the Type-C interface, the function is charging and wired connection.

The design on the back is relatively simple, not much different from common keyboards. In the middle is the nameplate of the keyboard, on which some basic information of the keyboard is marked. It is designed with 6 non-slip foot pads and 2 sections of support feet, which are convenient for users to adjust daily.

The keyboard is ergonomically designed, and the height of the keyboard stand can also be adjusted. There are three heights of 6~9°. The biggest advantage of starting with this keyboard is that the palm rest is discarded. After all, everyone knows that mechanical keyboards do not match the palm rest. Really tired.

【Shaft body and keycap】

The keycaps are made of PBT material two-color injection molding process keycaps, LSA height, the color of each keycap is very uniform, and the touch is delicate. PBT material keycaps are more wear-resistant and durable than ABS. Everyone knows that ABS is easy to "grease", but PBT material has no such problem. If you are an editor or a serious game enthusiast, it is recommended to choose PBT material.

The keychron K5 pro dual-mode mechanical keyboard has a total of 3 types of Keychron switches. As shown in the figure, which switch to choose depends on your usage habits. In addition, the keyboard supports hot-swapping, and is compatible with three-legged and five-legged switches on the market. If you have a switch you like more, you can buy it and replace it yourself. However, there are not many short switches on the market. After all, this is also a niche. shaft.

Gateron short red switch 2.0, the stroke of the short red switch is about 3/4 of the normal red switch, and the thin and light design provides a reliable fingertip feel, and the switch body can provide excellent smoothness in every press.

Keychron’s newly designed steel plate satellite shaft can keep it at the same level as the shaft body, reducing the swing of large keys such as the space bar, left Shift, backspace key, and Enter key. This can only be felt after experiencing it. Excellent, really doesn't wobble left and right.

【Lighting effect】

At present, this keyboard provides two backlight versions, namely RGB version and white light version. As the name suggests, the former is better in terms of lighting effects.

RGB version: 22 kinds of lighting effect modes are gorgeous and bright

White light version: 14 lighting effect modes can be switched at will

The lighting of the keyboard can be switched directly through the button (lighting chart) in the upper right corner, the brightness can also be adjusted, and the color transition of the lighting is also very smooth.

[Playability; QMK/VIA unlimited possibilities]

Nowadays, the keyboard is developing towards real customization. In the past, it was mostly changing the shaft, changing the keycap, or even changing the shell, but this is only on the hardware, and K5 pro supports QMK/VIA open source modification, which means that customization has already stepped forward. At the software level, we can easily and simply program each function key combination on the keyboard, and can use any key (including the knob) to create macros on any operating system (macOS, Windows or Linux), currently available on the details page According to the operation prompts, users can change the key on the web page, allowing users to truly create their own keyboard.

【Contrast effect】

This is the charm of the short axis. Compared with the standard mechanical keyboard, the gap is obvious. In fact, the low-axis mechanical keyboard is similar to the membrane keyboard we used before, but it feels much better.

Of course, what I like the most is its price, which is very cost-effective at 1799 yuan.

The gaming screen is really comfortable with the keychron K5 pro dual-mode mechanical keyboard, but I found that the Bluetooth connection is still not as stable as the wired connection. Could it be a problem with my computer. Personally, I suggest adding a 2.4G connection, although the power consumption is still more stable than Bluetooth.
