This Keyboard Has A Built In 12 Inch Touch Screen! – Maximum Productivity!
Now, when they reached out to me and showed me a glimpse of the product right away. I was like send this over to me. I really want to try it out, because this is genuinely one of the most interesting keyboard designs, ive seen in a while, so much so that i thought it was worth doing a power review on it. So, as always, today were going to take a deep dive to see who this keyboard might be for what it offers and ultimately answers the question of whether or not it might be the one for you, as always, if you guys enjoy the content hit the like Button and sub to my channel lets get started starting off with a real, quick unboxing. The first thing youre going to find is the fact that this box is pretty large, so you have a gold print of the actual device, so you can see its pretty nice there and then at the bottom. It says: multi function touch keyboard. Now, once you remove the paper envelope, then past that the real box is there proceed to open this box, which opens in a very glorious fashion, and you have some protective packaging remove that, and here it is the crown jewel the k2 keyboard. This thing seriously looks really nice and were going to go ahead and remove that screen protector peel and here it is that seamless glass surface finish, but more on this keyboard in a quick minute past that you have two individual sets of cables.
The first one is a usbc to usbc cable, which is the best way to connect one side on the keyboard, the other on the desktop. But for those of you who may not have a usb, you know cable to spare or port to spare. That is, you can always go with the second set of cables included, which is a hdmi to usb c, cable, so good. To have that option now past that youre also going to notice. You do have this really nice plush wrist pad. This is to put beneath the keyboard as a nice rest good stuff past that you also have this high quality soft cloth case to actually put the entire keyboard inside of its a protective case. Should you want to travel around with it and past that youll notice? You also have a key switcher tool. Yes, this is a hot swappable keyboard ill talk more about that in a quick minute as well, and finally, the instruction manual quick start guide, warranty information booklet as far as design goes. The k2 very much looks like a 75 keyboard. You have high profile keys, although you dont have the function set of keys over here now. The actual keyboard build is mostly hard, tpu or plastic. If you will making our way to the rear side, youll notice, thats, where you have a plus minus option, selector and also another button which actually brings up the main menu within the keyboard now past, that you have a usbc port to connect as the source of Display and power and two usb, a ports which are optional for third party exceptions, its nice of them to include that now, at the bottom side of the keyboard, again a hard tpu or plastic finish.
However, you do have these two height razors, with a single tier adjustable setting. This is, if you want to give a more height to your keyboard, lets talk about the elephant in the room that massive 12.6 inch display. Now it has a revolution of 1920x1550p, meaning its pretty high def and its really crisp, but what i love about this display is the fact that you could technically fit an entire operating system and use this as a sole display. Of course, i wouldnt recommend that, rather using the touch functionality, you have in this display its a better extension display or extension tool. For example, if youre doing video editing – and you want to swap the color grading tool using your fingers, bring it over to the secondary display and play around there or if youre, reading a article or writing up a word document, you can use this as the secondary Research display, which shows context from all the websites researching from theres many ways to use it and its worth noting. This is fully compatible with mac, os windows and even android, so lots of functionality with this display its definitely a very handy tool. As far as the actual keyboard itself goes, the keycaps have plenty of surface area and ample amount of key travel and great feedback, as youd expect, with a mechanical keyboard, whether youre doing general productivity task or even gaming, youll find its a very pleasurable machine or device To use now with that said, this does come equipped with gataron blue switches, meaning its going to be both tactile and relatively loud.
If you, like blue switches, youre gon na love it. Unfortunately, at the time of this video, you cannot pre configure this with brown or red switches, so blue is kind of what you get by default. So have a quick, listen for yourself for you, color maniacs out there in case you have not noticed. Yes, this keyboard is fully backlit and it comes with all the rgb hipster lighting. You could possibly desire you can swap through the multiple modes as well as color settings and youll find more on that in the instruction manual. Now its also worth noting that this keyboard, like i mentioned earlier, is fully hot swappable, meaning you can remove the keycaps and modify them, but also remove the gateron blue switches and swap them with other compatible switches, its nice to have that option. Now two major factors of consideration with this keyboard first and foremost, keep in mind. This is a wired keyboard, meaning you have no wireless connectivity options. Of course, this makes total sense, given the fact that this keyboard has an entire display to power up, so itd be impossible to have it running on a battery without you having super short battery life. The second factor to keep in mind is while the display in itself is very nice in terms of its quality. It is susceptible to large amounts of glare because it has a super reflective screen and i do find the brightness falls slightly short when you are using it in really bright rooms or in daylight settings.
So keep that in mind as well. At 420 dollars, this mushy cow k2 keyboard is definitely in the premium market. However, that 12.6 in display has plenty to offer its got a nice resolution, so everything looks nice and clear on it. Additionally, its got a 10 point touch system, so you know its great when you want to use your fingers to actually adjust various settings or play around or scroll and its great for productivity, gaming and content creation type of activities. Also, i love the fact that you do have getter on blue switches on here, meaning this keyboard is exceptionally amazing to type on its great again for gaming or general productivity and overall. I also appreciate the fact that this is a modern keyboard with a usbc type connection which really allows for a whole world of opportunities and, like i said its compatible with windows, mac, os and even android. So lots of compatibility lots of things happening over here now. If you are someone looking for a dedicated second monitor, you may be better off getting a second monitor, but if youre looking for an extension to your display, that also adds touch functionality again.
