Introducing the Keychron Q5 Mechanical Keyboard - Elevate Your Typing Experience in Vibrant Blue!

Meet the Keychron Q5, the keyboard that strikes the perfect balance between compact design and functionality. With its sleek 96% layout, it retains all the essential functions and number keys you need. Crafted with a robust all-metal CNC machined body, featuring a double-gasket design, and equipped with QMK/VIA support, the Q5 is the ideal choice for those seeking an almost full-size keyboard.

Barebones Edition: Please note that the Q5 is available in the barebones edition, which means it does not come with switches or keycaps. It's a canvas for your creativity!

Premium Aluminum Body: The Q5 boasts a 6063 aluminum CNC machined body that undergoes meticulous polishing, anodizing, and sandblasting, resulting in a keyboard that radiates sturdiness, weightiness, and premium build quality.

Double-Gasket Design: Immerse yourself in a delightful typing experience with the Q5's unique gasket design. It provides a flexible, responsive typing feel complemented by a satisfying sound. Silicone pads thoughtfully placed between the top and bottom cases effectively reduce sound resonance, making your typing sessions quieter and more enjoyable.

Programmable Knob: Boost your productivity and creativity with the premium rotary encoder. It allows you to customize your favorite keys and macros effortlessly using the innovative VIA software. Configure the Q5's knob to perform a variety of tasks, such as zooming in/out, adjusting screen brightness, modifying brush size, opacity, volume control, selecting video clips or photos, or changing backlight hues - the possibilities are endless.

Hot-Swappable PCB: Say goodbye to the hassle of disassembly and soldering! The Q5's hot-swappable PCB enables you to switch out switches effortlessly. Experiment with your favorite switches or explore new ones without risking damage to your keyboard. This PCB accommodates both 3-pin and 5-pin MX mechanical switches.

Gateron Screw-In PCB Stabilizers: Experience unmatched stability with the screw-in design, ensuring that the silver-plated stabilizers are rock-solid and free from wobbling. The big keys, including the space bar, shift, enter, and delete keys, offer a stable and smooth typing experience with significantly reduced rattling. The Q5 also supports third-party stabilizers, including Cherry or Durock.

South Facing RGB: Illuminate your workspace with the Q5's unique South Facing RGB lighting. LEDs positioned at the bottom of the switches create a dazzling effect, making your keyboard appear brighter and more vibrant. This feature perfectly complements PBT, Cherry profile, and non-shine-through keycaps, catering to customization enthusiasts.

Sound Absorbing Foam: Say goodbye to noisy typing! The Q5 incorporates sound-absorbing foam that reduces vibrations and drastically enhances the sound signature, allowing you to type peacefully.

Mac OS and Windows Support: Crafted with Mac users in mind while ensuring compatibility with Windows devices, the Q5 lets you save two distinct layouts on the keyboard, one for each system. It's the best of both worlds!

QMK and VIA Support: Unleash your creativity with full QMK and VIA support. Customize and remap each key on your keyboard with ease using the open-source firmware. Create unique layouts, shortcuts, and captivating backlight effects that reflect your personality.

Cases Available in Three Colors: The Keychron Q5 Barebone case comes in three captivating colors: Black, Grey, and Blue. Choose the one that complements your style and workspace.

Dimensions: Despite its compact design, the Q5 delivers a spacious typing experience, measuring 145mm in width and 390.4mm in length.
