Keychron Q5 Keyboard

Stacks Image 310
I’m writing this review on a Keychron Q5, 96% Mechanical keyboard. I have been a fan of mechanical keyboards for decades now. I used to use a Mathias keyboard because I liked the tactile feel, key travel, and the “clicky” sound it made while typing on it. You can get all that with Keychron’s keyboards and you can almost endlessly customize them. Several models even allow you to swap out the switches so you can modify them until they feel just how you want them.
 
The first thing you will notice about this keyboard is that it is heavy. Weighing in at over three pounds, it is cut from a block of aluminum. Its premium feel is solid. The keycaps themselves look and feel high-end. Mine has the brown key switches so it is not as loud as the blue or red switches that I have in my other Keychron keyboards.
 
Another selling point is the customization options available with the freely available Via software. Out of the box, I was not able to find a steady, white backlight. So I downloaded and opened the Via software. The application did not recognize my keyboard right away and so I needed to take the extra step of downloading the appropriate JSON file. Once I did, the software recognized the keyboard and presented me with a plethora of customization options. I was easily able to find and customize the backlight settings.
 
So far, my only complaint would be the placement of the delete key. I could move it and edit the keyboard configuration easily enough. I can’t think of a better location for it now. Aside from the delete key, it’s hard to find fault with this keyboard. Those of us who have been around a while may become a bit nostalgic while using this keyboard. The keys remind me of the Honeywell and Dec systems I used to program on in the 1980s.
 
If you’re in the market for a premium keyboard, I recommend checking out Keychron’s entire Q line. The Q5 sells for $185 and is available to order direct from Keychron's website

Briefly...

7-2-2022 - Paid our part of the house. Now off to go hiking with Adriane’s old Volleyball team

6-30-2022 - Found a house. Finally. I will post some photos when we are done with painting and renovating. There went our savings.

6-17-2022 - Spent last night in the ER of Erkelenz Krankenhaus with severe stomach cramps. Test, blood work, and now some medication and more tests scheduled. Recommendation, make the most of the time I have left.

6-11-2022 - Finally some nice weather. I hope it holds for a few days to let me make up some miles.

6-8-2022 - I am missing out on riding right now due to a combination of being sick and totally crappy weather. For the past week, it has been cold (for me) and rainy. Even so, if I had not been sick I think I would have made it out at least a couple of times. 🥲

5-30-2022 - I realized I had wasted three decades of my life and love on a woman whose heart is cold as a stone and to whom I am worthless.
