Super trooper keyboard! compact and beatuiful
Love the typing experience on this keyboard. The unit came well packaged and in time and overall experience has been really great so far with this keyboard
Eventually went for the avocado (led) with brown cherry keys and they are absolutely a joy to type on. Initially I was a bit hesitant about the height of the keys (was used to a magic keyboard), but that isn't a problem at all. The angle at which they stand are just right. Haven't received any complaints during conf calls either, so they aren't THAT loud (which was something I was somewhat reluctant on). All in all, this keyboard is an absolute joy to type on. Also, the customer support (before and during purchase) is very good as well. Very happy with my purchase!
I love this keyboard, it is absolutely amazing. The typing fee, comfort and satisfaction you get per key shot is super. Thank you for making such a great product, look forward to more!
Fantastic Keyboard. Not cheap - but you get what you pay for. Moved over from dome switched (Logitech K400 plus - which is good for sofa surfing) but after using my F96 it's hard to go back. Slight downside in the short term (in this scenario) is learning keyboard shortcuts to do things that I would normally just click on but long term I feel my productivity will increase not having to reach for a mouse/track-pad all the time. (See Ali Abdaal's - "How I Type REALLY Fast" Youtube Video using a iQunix F96 - this video was instrumental in my choice of the F96 Coral Wireless RGB) I personally turn off the RGB as it is not something that I am overly bothered about (but 10% extra for it, I thought why not!) though some of the effects are engaging. Though I would rather have battery life as I mainly use it in wireless mode (Ali in his review quotes 3 month+ with RGB OFF and ~4 days with RGB ON) Initially I had problems with the Bluetooth connection randomly dropping at least every 20 minutes, I even bought a $20 dollar Realtek BT 5.0 dongle hoping this would fix it - it didn't. But I could of saved my money as the problem was Windows 10 putting USB peripherals to sleep. I fixed this for me with 'power options' advanced settings - set <usb settings> -> <USB selective suspend setting> -DISABLED I have had no more issues with the connection in the past 5 days since implementing this solution. Keyboard wakes up instantly and is ready to go after one key press if left idle. Being able to switch which device I am typing on with a quick [FN]+ 1,2 or 3 is fantastic. I now seamlessly switch between phone and PC or 2nd PC - more useful than I imagined. My only gripe is the documentation is a bit sparse if you want to use the added program ability features like setting macro's & remapping keys - though tech support has been very responsive in addressing this for me. If you don't want this 'extra' functionality then the documentation is fine, pairing with devices changing RGB settings etc is all well covered and works seamlessly. [FN]+r resets the keyboard back to factor settings though you won't need it. Shipping to the UK took 8 days & the supplied tracking data was helpful and accurate. All in all I am very pleased with it. I am enthused about practicing my typing again (I touch type Dvorak but a lowly 50-60wpm if I want 99%+ accuracy) my sights are set on 90-100wpm an achievable goal imo with the responsiveness of this keyboard. Sorry this review was so long but I think this premium keyboard and the excellent iQunix deserve it.
Simple design but can make amazing feel.

Nice bad smooth typing experience
I wrote a more detailed review for the Blueberry keyboard I also ordered, but in general I love the keyboard. The look, feel, and form factor are all perfect and exactly what I was hoping for.
Great product, it was a gift and the person who got it was very happy with it.

I have bought iQunix F96 Coral Sea Keyboard. Right from the process of ordering to delivery everything went smooth. The keyboard looks and feels great. Thank you iQunix for this keyboard. Looking forward to purchase more keyboards from you.
I really love the keyboard look and feel with Cherry red switches. Only issue is Bluetooth connectivity. Disconnects every now and then in Windows 10 creating a lag. No issue if wired.
I am a full-time remote worker, and I was getting sick of muting myself all the time on calls. The Cherry MX blue switches on my last keyboard were just too loud for conferences. I like how this keyboard is substantially heavy, has a small form factor but still contains a number pad. The Cherry MX Pink switches were exactly what I needed to quietly type away without annoying everyone. Thanks!
I had ordered F96 coral sea keyboard with cherry mx silent red switch. The keyboard arrived within a week of ordering; it is well-built, has elegant look and typing experience is very satisfying. Highly recommended for anyone looking for a mechanical keyboard...
I absolutely love this keyboard! It's built with quality and feels amazing when I use it. It's aesthetically pleasing and functions well. Keep coming out with awesome designs. I look forward to buying another one. Shipment was fast. Very responsive customer service.
It's a well build keyboard with a lot of attention to detail. The only issue I had was that it came with Windows keys and I'm a mac user. Would have been great if separate mac keys were provided for the price. It's the most expensive mechanical keyboard in the market.
great keyboard doesnt take too much in deliver
Great Product & Service
Keyboard is great, but for some reason there are 2 "V" keys and no "N" key (key caps are wrong). Contacted support within 24 hours after receiving keyboard, they promised to send "N" key, no news so far (no key cap, no tacking number). Patiently waiting
Excellent keyboard. Better than expected and arrived before the estimated arrival. Incredibly I feel that I can write faster with this keyboard, the colors are nice, and although I write in Spanish, I learned fast the shortcuts. The sound is perfect. Highly recommended.
It feels great!!! Comes with a beautiful package and all the little things you need. Even with the corona situation i received it very fast!! Ordered it on 16th okt and received it on the 27th okt. Living in EU (Belgium)
I tried a Keychron first, but this one hits it out of the park. One of the most satisfying experiences in typing ever. The best mechanical keyboard every made! Thanks iQuinix!!
Great keyboard!! A little pricey tho
The switches feel great, the function commands feel intuitive, and the keyboard itself looks great.
My first QWERTY and also mechanical keyboard! Wasn't hard to learn the new layout (made some keys even more accessible since I'm a programmer). The keyboard itself feels great. I didn't expect that much travel distance on mechanical switches though, but no big deal. The keyboard also works great on Linux (I'm using Manjaro).
Really good keyboard but hard to find a wrist rest for it.
It is a great keyboard. Definitely worth the price!
Great feel to the keyboard but having loads of wireless connectivity issues with it where signal keeps dropping. So have had to use wired mode which is not ideal when you specifically paid for wireless keyboard.
I’m new to mechanical keyboards, but I decided to jump in with both feet. Holy cow am I impressed! I’ve never truly noticed keyboards unless they created a problem for me, but I actually NOTICE how satisfying these keys are to type on. The colors of the keyboard itself are amazing and the different light patterns are so freakin cool. It’s hard for me to compare my experience to other mechanical keyboards, but as someone that’s new to them in general, this might be one of my best impulse buys ever.
It's been great having my F96. Really love the feel, the look and it just always works perfect. The weight is great as well, cannot imagine a better keyboard.
Excellent quality, enjoy typing, the best keyboard I have ever used. Fast shipping excellent packaging.
Great mechanical keyboard. Upgraded to this from an Aukey keyboard and it is a huge improvement. Keys have a great tactile bump when pressed and don't make too much noise.
I love my keyboard
This keyboard is everything I could have asked for!
It's beautiful and nice.
The keyboard is as described in short prefect. One word of caution if you are from EU try to avoid DHL you will have a very unpleasant experience with them. Highly recommend the keyboard!!!
I could not be more pleased with this wonderful keyboard. The customer service was superb and the delivery was considerably faster than I was anticipating. The action on the keyboard (Cherry Brown) is smooth, and the sound is not at all distracting. I have nothing but good things to say. Great job, IQUNIX ! Dale - San Diego, CA
The setup and presentation is slightly darker than the photos but most of the qualities from the photo stayed the same. I ordered cherry red switch, but I noticed it is easier to mistype keys a lot easier. It isn't a big deal breaker for me, but it is something to keep in mind next time when you are purchasing a mechanical keyboard. Overall, I think the keyboard is really nice and other than the switch mismatch, it is a pretty good mechanical keyboard.
Really well made and nice keyboard to use. No complaints
Easy install in windows and great keyboard.
I love the product, the F96 Coral Sea Wireless keyboard. Reviews about this keyboard made so enthusiastic i could not resist the purchase. And it did not fail on me up unitl now. However the purchase was not without an unpleasant surprise unfortunatly. My Customs identified the packages and I was required to pay an other €60. When I did the purchage it was said that shipping was free of costs, so i tought that taxes were included. My advise to iQunix is to be more transparent about tax costs so future customers will not be surprised by this fact.
even better than expected!
Excellent keyboard comes with a delicate packaging that include everything you need. Cherry Red and the elegant look fits perfectly my workflow.

Love the look and feel (+heft) of the Iqunix F96 coral
Wow, what a fantastic keyboard. Easily the highest quality keyboard I've ever used which is reflected in the price. The build quality is astounding, and the all aluminum construction is quite heavy making it unlikely to move on your desk. The color scheme is gorgeous and obviously inspired by the GMK Bento keycaps. My only criticism is that the orange keycaps are not dyed completely evenly; the edges, especially along the spacebar, are just noticeably lighter in color. Otherwise this would be a 5/5.
One of the best keyboards I’ve ever used!!
It’s a fantastically built board. It feels durable, stable, and hefty with the metal frame. They keys feel great and the switches are all perfect and problem free so far. I am really happy with my f96 coral and would highly recommend it
Love at first sight, and didn't regret it. Excellent build quality and typing experience.
I have been looking for a wireless mechanical of this particular layout for years. Love the build, love the quality. This keyboard's metallic frame and build have been an upgrade from my Filco Convertible 2. Would totally consider upgrading to rgb version if battery life can be further improved and having backlit/textured keycaps as an option.
Hello! I’ll tell you what I liked and what I didn’t like about this keyboard. Would I buy one again knowing what I know? If i could check the easiness of use of the Logitech MX keyboard, i would compare that to this one and decide. But this one may win. What I liked: Mostly all the reasons why one would by this. Mechanical feeling, great. Mechanical sound, great. Not super loud which its a plus when you sharing office. Heavy duty. Feel sturdy. Colors: beautiful. Gotten lots of complements of it. RGB works really well too. Typing experience is great as well. No Bluetooth lag (IMO) easy to charge and connect. What I did not like: I was really looking forward for the switch between ipad and PC and it works. Just not 100% of the time. For example, works the first 3 switches, but then looses connection, which is very annoying. I had this problem for about a week of receiving it, and now I dont test it, I just use it when I need to and how I would use it (so not switching back and forth) and it works well. I had to disconnected all my Bluetooth devices from both ipad and pc and connect keyboard first and then try their switching. After this I’ve been able to switch with ease, it’s just not great that a 250$ product doesn’t have this down. I believe the MX keyboard would so that would be why I want to try that. But this one is so much prettier. It’s pricey, but building one your own is pricey. Is it worth it? For me it is because the keyboard brings me joy and I get to use it for shoots. So only buy it if you really like design and want things to look nice.
Awesome keyboard, very good build quality and excellent delivery service. Can’t expect better purchase experience.
Keyboard types smoothly. Definitely worth every dollar. Quality is exceptional!
The keyboard quality is amazing, I didn't expect it to look and feel this nice. Love the backlight options! My only issue with it is that it is a bit tall. Definitely going to need to buy a wrist rest
Absolutely the best keyboard I've ever used. Wonderful for writing, for editing, and for gaming. My boyfriend is extremely jealous of me for it now
Keyboard is great - really like the backlighting - never could get the enclosed bluetooth dongle to work - always says wrong code sent - gave up - keeping it - just using it as a wired keyboard.
The keyboard is very well built. You can feel the quality in the case and the weight of the keyboard. I didn't like the font of the original key caps so I bought another set. The shipping process was not long, it took about 2 weeks to get here which was really fast. I wish I had gotten the cheaper version without the wireless because I didn't really have a reason to use to. Overall the build quality is great, the software is easy to use, and the shipping was very fast. If I were to get another I would get the midnight black version.
Pros: 1. Product is solid. Well built. Loving it Cons: 1. No firmware for MacOS yet, so I can't program the RGB light even though I have the features. 2. Shipping took so long!
I'm very satisfied with using the keyboard and the overall quality of the build! Customer service is also quick and brilliant in addressing my concerns.
Amazing keyboard! Gorgeous to look at, lovely to type on, and easy to use in bluetooth or wired mode. Would definitely recommend!
This keyboard is great! Amazing response and just enough noise to be satisfying but not too loud (I went with the brown Switches). It definitely help me clear up some extra space on my desk and looks beautiful doing it!
Love the keyboard, best keyboard I've ever used! It's great fun to use especially with the Cherry Blue clicks!
Great product, customer service even better.
Keyboard looks and feels great. It’s also very solidly built and feels comfortable to type. Switching between Bluetooth devices fails to work at intermittent times. When this occurs, you can choose to re-pair or wait a couple of minutes and the issue appears to clear. I have tested this switching between windows 10, iOS (iPad Pro) and MAC OS. The issue is guaranteed to occur a couple of times a day during a typical 8 hr work day. If I don’t switch between devices I have no issues with Bluetooth pairing. RGB colours work really well and battery life is pretty good. I only use RGB at night as it’s not really visible In daylight or in a brightly lit room. In the two week’s I’ve been using the keyboard with a combination of RGB light on and off, battery is on 60%. The MX blue switches feel and sounds great and this is a great mechanical keyboards, even with the Bluetooth switching issue. Only other improvement I can recommend is to increase the size of the 0 on the numpad. I cannot use my thumb to hit the zero like I would on a standard keyboard.
Great keyboard. Nice RGB lighting features. Very heavy and sturdy. High quality keycaps that have a nice sound when typing. Cherry MX Blue switches give a nice clicky sound just like they should. Thank you!
Ok guys so here is my review of the IQUnix F96 Coral Sea. Let's start by saying that it does take a long time in order to get your hands on this board. After ordering, it took about a month to finally get it. This is not IQUnix's fault ofcourse. When it comes to keyboards, I have been using low profile ones all my life. But the last couple of months I started to read more and more about mechanical keyboards. I read some reviews about this board and nearly all of them spoke very highly about it. After using this keyboard for a couple of days I can only agree. This is a great board. The package is high quality, the build quality of the board itself is great. The typing experience on this thing has been in 1 word : AMAZING. I have been using this board on both Windows and Mac with bluetooth and switching between these 2 gave no problems. To conclude.. I highly recommend this keyboard.
Absolutely love it, weighty feel and quality construction... battery seems to have great life and paired with my very old Mac wirelessly very easily. Also works with iPhone and android TV! Everything about it is great, feel, sound and colours. Only suggestion would be including Mac alternative keycaps as an option for Mac users.
It does take a month for the company from China to ship to the States. Other than that, there is nothing I can really complain. The keyboard is heavy, the Blue cherry switch are clicky as expected. Overall, I really like the keyboard.
Very nice Keyboard! Its a high quality production with good looking designs. Sadly the packaging isnt really made for shipping, so the weight of the keyboard dented USB plug. Since its a USB->USB-C cable its not that big of a deal. Overall a really good piece of craftsmanship! PS: A qwertz/EU keycap set would be great ;)
The shipping and logistics experience was long and painful (1 month to get the keyboard), but the thing just rocks. Amazing board.
Shipped pretty face and the feel and typeability is amazing. Love the size and functionality.
Great keyboard with functionality.
Absolutely in love with this keyboard!! The brown switches feel amazing and the 96% layout is the perfect one for me. Everything on this keyboard feels high quality and well thought out. Just a pleasure to use. Besides that their costumer service is one of the best I've ever experienced.
TLDR; The quality and feel of the keyboard along with all of the functionality is superb. So far the keyboard has been great. I’ve heard about some Bluetooth issues with the k96 but I haven’t had any problems using the dongle or direct Bluetooth connections. The weight and finish is on par with my expectations with the only exception being a few keycaps not being fully painted/dyed on the sides. The colors are very accurate to the renders which was a huge concern of mine before purchasing. Everything is a nice satin/matte finish and has a good texture to it. To sum it up, I highly recommend these keyboards, period. If you’re looking for a custom feeling mechanical board that isn’t TKL like every other board ever, this is one for you.
Solid Built, functional looks great. I wish the sound wasn't so hollow and tinny sounding. Might need to be lubed. But good price and a good starter Mech board.
Some issues with tracking information but I got it eventually and it's a great product. Very happy with my new kb!!
