Right after the successful launch of the Glorious GMMK Pro, the Keychron Q1 is probably the next most anticipated custom mechanical keyboard of the year. The Q1 is cheaper and comes with extra customisation options when compared with the GMMK Pro. It is unavoidable if the community want to compare them as they share a lot of the characteristics.
In short, the Keychron Q1 has a lot to offer:
- Much hyped 75%/76% key layout
- Full aluminium chassis
- Highly customisable options
- QMK supported
In other words, if you’re looking to join the compact keyboard bandwagon, the Keychron Q1 is actually a very good keyboard to get as your endgame keyboard. Given if you have all your requirements tabled down so you can get your hands onto the best switches, stabilisers, keycaps and put them together.
