Keychron K2 V2 Review: is Better than The Old Version

Keychron K2 V2 Review

The Keychron K2 version 2 addresses complaints from previous models with Bluetooth 5.1 capability and several angle options. Combining the key features of the Keychron K2 with new features to improve comfort and versatility, the keyboard is the 75% perfect keyboard choice. Let's see why the Keychron K2 V2 is better than the older model.

Wireless / Wired Connection

One of the most sought-after features of the Keychron K2 V2 is Bluetooth 5.1 connectivity. The keyboard can be connected to up to three devices, making it perfect for people who like to switch devices frequently. The Keychron K2 V2 can be connected via Bluetooth to Android, Windows, Mac, and iOS. The wired to wireless switch button is located on the side of the keyboard.

Windows / Mac Compatible

There is a slider on the side of the keyboard that allows you to switch between Mac and Windows functionality. Add Mac function keys can easily be added to any keyboard used on a Mac laptop or desktop. While switches have grown with more technology, I like how Keychron includes keys and sliders for quickly switching between Mac and Windows.

Keycaps

The keys depend on the standard OEM profile. This means that the keys are angled and of different heights to easily place your hands and fingers. The Keychron K2 V2 uses ABS plastic keycaps, but there are options to get the model with PBT keycaps. The PBT version has different colors, such as green/brown and dark gray, unlike the two gray keys on my keyboards.

I generally like PBT keys, but the Keychron K2 V2's ABS keys are soft. I've never seen it shine through inaccessibility (one of my main complaints with the ABS keys). The keys of the K2 V2 are double injected, and the caption subtitle also has a shiny effect. It's a little thing that I appreciate more and more companies just copy captions. The legend is easily visible when the light is turned back on. It helps a lot because the keys are a bit different.

Quality

The Keychron K2 V2 works very well. There is also an aluminum frame variant of the K2 V2 if you need more support. These models have many options for design, lighting, and keys (depending on the price), so you can choose which one you want to see.

The cables included with the Keychron K2 V2 were angled at the end to fit the side. The port is located in a small rest area on the left side of the keyboard. A major complaint regarding the Keychron K2 is the case. The device is unique and only has one angle kickstand, which is quite chic for my wrist. The K2 V2 features a case design and an adjustable kickstand to achieve different specs.

Switches

Version 2 of Keychron K2 is not hot-swappable, so it doesn't matter which replacement it is supplied with. It will look great on a hot-swap device like the Keychron K6, but the update is coming soon. Fortunately, there are plenty of options for switches, so you should find one that fits your needs. The available Gateron switches are red, blue, and brown. See below for a brief description of the features of each exchange.

  • Blue: Very loud and clickable Gateron blues. They can be fun to use but frustrating for others in the room.
  • Red: This transition is smooth, linear, quiet, and perfect for playing a game. 
  • Brown: Gateron brown is a tactile switch, so it has a medium tone. It can be an excellent choice for any device or game.

Conclusion

The Keychron K2 V2 addresses most design criticism, making the keyboard now the keyboard's main competitor at 75%. Expect future models to be able to use custom cables with hot-swap and USB port replacement. These changes show that Keychron cares about the needs of its customers.
This can be an excellent option for gamers or anyone looking for a more extensive selection of full-size keyboards. Customization options allow you to customize the keyboard to your specific needs. The Keychron K2 V2 is a reliable, high-quality, and versatile keyboard that is sleek and comfortable to type.
