Gmmk Pro Vs Keychron Q1

Article about gmmk pro vs keychron q1

The Q1 Pro is the latest in Keychron's line of customizable mechanical keyboards. It offers premium features, including open-source firmware and hot-swappable switches, at an affordable price. Keychron has also implemented the Q series' gasket mount design, which gives a softer and more springy typing experience.

Its compact 75% layout, with a full arrow and function row, is also well-liked by reviewers. Combined with Gateron Phantom Brown switches and the included high-profile PBT keycaps, the Q1 Pro's typing feel is almost heavenly.

There are two reasons you might not want to buy the Q1 Pro: If you demand 2.4GHz gaming-grade wireless, which isn't currently available in Bluetooth form (and would probably require a dedicated USB dongle); or if you just want to wait until Keychron brings a similar Bluetooth implementation to one of its other, many different keyboard layouts. Otherwise, this is a great choice for anyone looking to get into the customized mechanical keyboard world at an accessible price point. The barebones version of the Q1 Pro starts at $179, and fully assembled with switches and caps is around $200.
