Amazing feel and design

It is everything I expected it to be, and more! A great investment for a long time, I look forward to customising it, but even as it is, it feels and sounds amazing. Functionality wise, it's perfect.

No product is flawless but...

It's already been two weeks. Wow. I'm still getting used to the size difference between this and my previous board, a Logitech G910 Orion fullsize. I suspect it'll take a litle while longer yet as I was using the other one for a number of years. The actual typing experience, however, has been fantastic. The sound and feel of the switches is very satisfying for me. When I find a rhythm it is a great feeling.

The weight, while markedly heavier than the G910, is a non issue because it means it won't be sliding anywhere under gaming duress, and the smaller size makes it more manageable for me, even with the increased weight. I'm still getting used to the volume knob being on the left instead of the right, and I occasionally find myself absent-mindedly moving my right hand to where I'm used to it being, but that'll fix itself with time.

Pretty much the only criticism I have so far is the lack of per-key addressable lighting through VIA. This is about the only feature I'm missing compared to the Logitech which had both per-key addressable lighting and per-application lighting profiles. In defense of the Q3 Pro, this was not a feature I made significant use of outside of Skyrim and League of Legends (Dota 2 had a built-in profile that came with the keyboard's software suite). This was, however, a nice-to-have and not a deal-breaker.

All-in-all, I am quite impressed with the experience thus far, and am glad I went with this over one of the Azio "Retro" boards, which being flatter and low profile, would've likely been easier for me to type on (I spent near a decade on an older Apple magic keyboard across which my hands would just fly), would have also been a complete nightmare to clean, if one were to look closely at the construction of the keycaps.

To conclude, the hardware is probably a 4.5/5, while the software experience is closer to a 3.5, but overall I have absolutely no major complaints about this product thus far.

Double-Gasket Design

The Double Gasket Design is a new innovative structure in the industry. In addition to the gaskets on the plates, we added silicone pads between the top and bottom cases to significantly reduce the sound resonance between the metals and reduce the noise of the impacted metals.

PC plate of the Keychron Q3 Pro

Experience the next level of key sounds and comfort with our gasket mount design together with a flexible PC (Polycarbonate) plate. This design combination allows the keyboard to maintain the flexibility of the gasket structure and improves the overall typing sound.

An Epic Core Inside The Keyboard

A powerful ultra-low-power ARM Cortex-M4 32-bit STM32L432 chip (MCU) equipped with 128K Flash will provide more flexibility for developers. The polling rate is 1000 Hz right out of the box on type-c wired mode (90 Hz on wireless mode), which makes the latency hardly noticeable even in competitive games.

KSA Double-Shot PBT Keycaps

To further fine-tune your typing experience, we designed our unique Keychron spherical-angle (KSA profile) double-shot keycap set with premium non-backlight shine through PBT material, that is oil-resistant and durable for long-term use.

Suitable for All Devices

Built with the Mac users’ experience in mind while still retaining compatibility for Windows devices, the Q3 Pro comes with a system toggle and an additional set of customized keycaps for both Windows and macOS systems. You can now save two different layouts on the keyboard, one for each system.

Custom Macro Keys

The Q3 Pro Special Edition has four macro keys on the left side. They can be custom and assigned to different actions via the VIA software, simplifying your input and reducing your workload.

Programmable Knob

Designed to enhance your creative workflow, the aluminum rotary encoder allows you easily customize the knob to your desired key or macro commands like zooming in/out, adjusting screen brightness, brush size, volume, selecting video clips or photos, or backlight hue.

Using the knob as "zoom in/out"

Program The Q3 Pro with QMK & VIA.

Endless possibilities for a fluid workflow thanks to its ability to remap any key, and create macro commands, shortcuts, or key combinations through the QMK/VIA.

Check out the video above demonstrating how to remap the Home key to an Eject key with the VIA software to create a shortcut to put your Mac to sleep (Command-Option-Eject).

Get the Q3 Pro keymap working on VIA

Since the VIA code for the Q3 Pro is still awaiting approval from Github, it is not yet automatically recognized. Please download the appropriate keymap JSON file below, open VIA, turn on "Show Design tab" on "Settings" tab, and drag the JSON file into the “Design” tab on VIA to get the Q3 Pro keymap working on VIA.

Hot-swappable feature of the Keychron Q3 Pro QMK/VIA 80% layout wireless custom mechanical keyboard

Hot-Swappable

Every detail matters for a personalized typing experience, that’s why we give you the power. You can hot-swap every switch on the Q3 Pro with almost all of the 3pin and 5pin MX style mechanical switches on the market (including Cherry, Gateron, Kailh, Panda, etc.) without soldering required. You can customize your own typing experience in seconds.

*The four macro keys (M1~M4) on the Q3 Pro SE are not hot-swappable.

South-Facing RGB

Comes with 22 types of RGB backlight settings. You can further fine-tune the RGB hue, saturation, brightness, effect speed, and different modes, or even remap these keys with QMK/VIA.

Keychron K Pro Mechanical Switch

By optimizing the switch mold, the Q3 Pro switch wobbles less than the standard mechanical switch and feels smoother on each hit. Plus, the factory pre-lubed K Pro switches will ensure the best fingertip smoothness. Not to mention the banana switch provides an early tactile bump at the top with a uniquely smooth experience like those Panda switches on the market.

PCB Stabilizers

No detail is too insignificant when it comes to your fingertip feel. We’ve integrated the PCB-mounted screw-in stabilizers for a smoother typing experience with less wobbliness on the big keys such as the space bar, shift, enter, and delete keys. You can even customize your favorite stabilizers on your own.
