Only knocking the review down one as the switches themselves were pretty good! And the price for 87 of them was nice. Nice tactility and smoothness. Now Keychron states these only work in a K12 (just scroll up). However, I can say with 100% certainty (as I’m typing with them for this) they can be installed into the K4. SPECIFICALLY the Version 1 with Optical switches (Bottom of board would note as “J2”). I bought these as a test as I wanted replacement switches for my K4 but Keychron said LK made those, and they stopped production. Communication with them noted that these switches WILL NOT fit my board. Well, they’ve been installed with ease, and work perfectly fine. No miss-strokes/types and no issues have popped up since switching them. The page should be updated for those with older boards like the K4 V1 optical, but I doubt it. Thanks, though! These work for me =]
Wanted a new keyboard for work with tactile switches but hate browns and prefer heavier springs. I wanted to try a 60 percent layout and figured I would jump on the k12 with Mints since it was on sale. I have loved every second of using them. They feel very similar to Zealios which I also love but have not been able to find for a good price. If you like Zealios but they are too expensive or you cannot find them, these are a great alternative. If they weren't optical I would buy them for future builds. 10/10
Bought these from the website thinking they would work with my new K2. Turns out the keyboard I bought from Amazon didn't have hot swappable switches and when I bought another keyboard that was hot swappable these switches weren't the right type. Expensive mistakes, wish it was a bit clearer on the site what switches work with each keyboard.
I ordered mine with the hotswap blue optical keychron switches and a set of banana switches. Love the blues but coworkers are starting to complain about the noise (they also have mechanical keyboards but tactile or linear switches), I'll be changing the blues out for the banana this weekend to see if I like them as much.
