*Firmware and driver need to be set up on Windows 10.
TLDR: This keyboard is AMAZING. I bought two. I did a full review here. https://youtu.be/oCqi5apDcTE
The best keyboard i have ever typed on, perfect choise :)
Best keyboard ever!
I love this keyboard so much!!
This keyboard is solidly constructed and robust. It is more satisfying to use than many of the plastic (spongy) keyboards offered by the likes of Apple. If you are serious about typing and productivity then this is the keyboard for you.
I owned the F96 keyboard for over a year and here are my thoughts. The keyboard is very attractive to the eyes and the keys feel very nice when typing. However, there are issues with it. 1. The battery life is dismal-- had to charge it quite often. I don't bother with wireless anymore, so I connect it via wire. 2. The keyboard can malfunction at times-- when certain keys are pressed, it spits out random words or becomes hotkeys for Windows OS. There is no fix for it since there are no firmware update... you just have to hope that the keyboard will start functioning normally again. 3. The travel time for the keys are high, so it can bother some people. 4. The support from IQUNIX is non-existent. Reached out to them twice and they have not responded. Luckily the keyboard decided to function normally again, but don't depend on their support. The product has great build quality and looks amazing. However, with the issues that plague the keyboard and the lack of support from the company, I do not recommend it. I'm sure there are better keyboards out there.
This was my first mechanical keyboard purchase. I probably did too much research on it to get it to narrow down toa few choices. I am so glad I chose this one. It has to be the best looking keyboard on earth. I love how it feels to type and I it looks great on my desktop.
Works great for my needs! I love the response, sound, and indentation of the key caps. Probably my nerdiest purchase but one of my favorites.
Excellent Mechanical keyboard, the keys are super responsive which helps me improve my technique as a beginner. I always get great comments from people who see me using it.
Not at all what I was expecting when I ordered it, especially considering the price level. Genuinely felt that I had received a better quality item from a less expensive keyboard. It’s a decent keyboard, but I think the hype was a bit too much.
So this is sort of like my final review for this keyboard. I've had this keyboard for almost two years now and I think I know it pretty much trough and through. For reference I have a wired/wireless F96 series in the colour coral sea. I have a lot to say about this keyboard because honestly it just has so many ups and downs. Wired this keyboard is perfect for someone getting into mechanical keyboards. if you want a nice case and good start in terms of pcb or keycaps/switches this is a great start, especially because the navy sea colour goes with a variety of other keycaps. The only real issues I have with this keyboard is the bluetooth. I have done every fix I could possibly think of to fix the variety of issues that comes with this keyboards bluetooth. maybe I've just got a bad apple but from my experience the bluetooth is finicky at best, disconnecting constantly, random ghost keys, you name it I've experienced it at least once. The best most reliable fix I've come up with so far is the following. Plug in the keyboard on wireless mode before connecting wirelessly. I don't know why but this makes it 100 times easier to reconnect the keyboard. there are tons of bluetooth fixes online so I recommend doing those as well just for good measure if you're having difficulties with this keyboard. Do not leave the keyboard without using it wirelessly for too long. I don't know why, I assume it's something to do with the battery but if you don't use the Bluetooth for too long it can get more finicky and then after a while of using the Bluetooth consistently again it sort of just fixes itself. I also recommend going into your device manager and changing the 3 bluetooth support options to automatic, I dont really know why but this also helps. I do not recommend using wireless mode while playing games as it can randomly disconnect or try to connect to something else even if you have never used it for another device like me. I mostly only use wireless mode when programming so really its just kind of up in the air. if you really want a wireless keyboard I recommend getting the usb connect versions, they're just way more reliable and you're less likely to suffer from this like I am. Wired this is an amazing keyboard it's really just the bluetooth that makes this a bit of a waste of a purchase for me because I rarely use the bluetooth mode. I recommend getting a wired backlit version or one of the usb bluetooth keyboards if you really want bluetooth. This is just my experience with the product. reading this back it is unbelievably chaotic but I don't have the time to write this in a grammatically correct way. Also please keep in mind that IQUINX takes no responsibility in how well your bluetooth works and does not refund products for these types or really for any type of issue as far as I can tell, please correct me if I'm wrong cause I would love to know more although I'm not sure if I'd be eligible. but yeah keyboard has a great feel when its connect and honestly if the bluetooth worked well it would be an instant 10/10 in my books. I hope this review has been somewhat helpful.
Had it for almost a year now. Overall this keyboard is great. Love the build quality. The only downside I experienced is with bluetooth. When using bluetooth, keypresses are at times missed or sometime would go like thisssss. I reached out to support but they have not been helpful about it. The wired connection however works amazing.
It is good and I love it very much.
The dream companion for writing across devices. The CherryMX browns are a dream to hear.
as my first mechanical keyboard, it is really good and has enhanced my productivity a lot. I found out about this keyboard by Ali Abdaal and purchased one for myself after he gave a little review about it. I have the non-RGB, wired + wireless with cherry MX blue switches which are really clicky and loud but I enjoy the sound of the switches. This keyboard would've made 5 stars if I could connect it via Bluetooth on my 2011-mid iMac All-In-One computer but the keyboard isn't showing up when pairing. On Windows devices (my laptops) and phones, it is showing up so at least I can use it sometimes wirelessly but wasted a bit of money buying the wired and wireless version instead of buying the just wireless. Overall a really fun first mechanical keyboard that makes my typing experience for online school and homework much more pleasurable.
I am a mac user, this being said: 1. I am really disappointed on how low the support of this keyboard is for mac. Actually, I cannot understand how come a product company that makes keyboards, does not have a line for macs 2. The fact I do not know if caps lock key is pressed or not is frustrating and annoying 3. I miss a way to graduate how inclined I want the keyboard to lay on the table
This compact keyboard is a life-saver. My desk doubles as my office and my gaming station, so I have a lot of stuff in a relatively small space. The compact design of the keyboard that retains the numpad in a small form factor is definitely a plus. Reliability can be felt in its weight, and I do love how comfortable and precise it is. The sound is awesome, too - I went with Cherry Red switches - sometimes I type during work calls while taking notes, and I didn't want the keyboard to be too clicky. At night the RGB lighting turns this home office desk into my battle station and off I go. Perfect. I love it!
Love the build quality and features. Only downside is it creates a metallic echoing reverb sound if I type too aggressively due to the aluminum body.
Sometimes the key gets stuck which leads to thissssssssssssssssssssssssss.
I spent several weeks researching various high end mechanical keyboards until I ultimately decided to purchase the IQUNIX F96 Coral Sea Wireless Mechanical Keyboard. I opened it on Christmas day, and I am very happy with this amazing keyboard.
Amazing quality! I recommend for anyone looking for a great and good looking keyboard
The best keyboard i ever have.
I bought this keyboard as a present to myself for having completed some important data analysis for my PhD. I was a little worried about buying it because, due to the kind of data I analyse, I’m a Linux user and in the specifications it doesn’t say that the keyboard can run on Linux. But I bought it, and it worked perfectly. I can type much faster on it than I would with my normal keyboard and I am very happy with the quality of the key presses. I do work in multiple languages, though, and I would have liked to have the option to choose a different keyboard layout than the US key layout. But, on the whole, I am very satisfied with the quality of the keyboard.
A very good quality keyboard
It is a great keyboard, great key interaction, and the weight of the keyboard is perfect to stay anchored where I've placed it. VERY HAPPY!
I absolutely love the color and the sound of this keyboard. I would recommend it to anyone looking to get a new keyboard!
I LOVE MY NEW MECHANICAL KEYBOARD.
Love it! The color scheme is beautiful. The fit and finish is top notch. I ordered mine on November 17th and received it on December 14th. I recently began learning how to touch type and this baby is a joy to use.
Five start rating for this keyboard is not a hard choice to make. Solid built, good quality, excellent response when typing. I think the keyboard can come with a better quality keyboard cover, it can be customs made. This is an expensive keyboard and I believe the user want to protect it from any tear and wear. Also I think the packaging of this keyboard can be done better to reflect this is a premium product. A soft clean cloth may be a good bonus in the packaging. Very pleased with this keyboard so far and I am hoping to see more interesting products from IQUNIX soon.
Best Keyboard I have ever had bluetooth works flawlessly and the keyboard is excellent quality metal and sturdy af highly highly reccomend!
This is my first mechanical keyboard and I love it! The keyboard is so pretty and it is so satisfying typing on the keyboard. Definitely recommend for first-time buyers like myself.
I was sold a backlit keyboard with caps with non-backlit caps. They look terrible in low light as I can see the plastic tubing under the caps. Also, the Bluetooth takes too long to connect (2-3 seconds). This is not a 200$+ keyboard and I will discourage others from buying it.
Great keyboard. However, the key caps colours need to be addressed. Orange doesn't go well on blue. So you need bright light to see the blue key caps - the coral see version. Make the font colour on the blue key caps white
The keyboard has a wonderful touch and feel compared to the Apple keyboard. It is a great purchase!!!
How can I rate something that I’ve never received yet?? It’s been 1 month and I still have not received this!!! I contacted support and they keep sending me the same tracking number that I already have! I understand that it’s the shipping distributor but no way to refund or replace the unit that I have? Like cmon why I am I not getting more help on this??
This keyboard is so good!
Wow. A fantastic keyboard. I’m obsessed with using it. I look forward to hearing those audible clicks when typing. So very satisfying.
Its overpriced and even though I haven't opened it and its been 2 weeks, they don't let me return it. This company is a scam don't buy from them. 1 week is too short for us to contact customer service and return the product.
I love the sturdy metal frame. It really feels like premium quality. The aesthetic and design are remarkable. And of course, words can't express how much I love typing on this keyboard!
the ttc gold pink so underrated, the keyboard has low profile good, and there is very solid factories lube, it types very fast and feels very nice. the keyboard is not hot-swapable though.
I got my keyboard about two weeks ago, and it really overcame all my expectations. I love the touch of color that my iQunix keyboard adds to my office, and it feels amazing to type in it.
I am unable to get the keyboard to respond even though paired. It has responded in the past. Cannot even type my password to get everything going. Any suggestions?
The perfect keyboard at a good price!!!
This is a very beautiful keyboard but the only thing I don’t like is that it stops responding randomly despite being paired and connected to Bluetooth. I then have to use my other keyboard to type but once i go back to the F96, it starts working again
worth the purchase!
I've had this keyboard for a while now - ordered with the clicky Blue switches. The build quality is second to none, and most importantly for me, I can type for 10+ hours a day with zero pain in my hands. I have bad carpal tunnel pains and this is the only keyboard I have used that is angled such that, without any wrist rests, it's a painless experience. I've since somewhat lost my taste for the clicky Blues and have ordered another with Pinks. Highly recommended.
商品はデザイン、大きさ、タイピングの心地よさ、どれも★５です。 発送は香港からで、予定より少し遅れましたが追跡サービスもあり安心できました。 キーボードにしては高額の商品ですが満足しています。
Candy color love it
Very excellent keyboard. But I have some problem when connect via BT. However, I appreciate 5 star.
Very cool keyboard, the best I ever had so far !
Works amazingly well, very responsive. Makes typing enjoyable :)
Love the keyboard. Perfect and feel premium. No regrets at all. I bought it with pink mx which is good for me because I want it to be silent.
This keyboard is as beautiful and high-quality in person as it looks online, the colors are super bright and the keys feel sturdy. At first, the keyboard made some metallic echoing noises when I typed and the keys felt a bit stiff, but after a couple of days the keys started to move a lot more smoothly and quietly. Typing on this keyboard is super comfortable, satisfying, and stylish!
Absolutely love this keyboard. It’s not very quite when tying late night but I love the sound and cherry brown switch is amazing. Switch from one device to another device is very easy as well. Only minor issue is that the battery life is a little shorter than I expected (two weeks max for a full-time programmer or technical writers). Overall, I will give 4.8/5 for this product.
The best mechanical keyboard I have ever used. The backlights are amazing and I like that it has multiple colours and colour patterns you can choose from. I am using it for my home office and it connects seamlessly with my laptop via Bluetooth. You only need to connect once and it stays connected even if you restart your system. The keyboarded can also be connected via a cable to your system. It comes with a thunderbolt - USB charging cable which can be used to connect it to any system and charge it all at the same time. Its build quality is phenomenal, the keyboard is surely durable. It is heavy (around .8 - 1KGs) and doesn’t move when I type which is great. Also, it has two bumps on both top right and top left corners underneath the keyboard which elevates it a bit, probably around 15 - 20 degrees, which is a perfectly ergonomic setting in my opinion as it is super comfortable when I am typing. Looks beautiful. Feels amazing. Compact yet has all the keys you need for tasks ranging from drafting emails to some arduous data entry. Great product. I recommend it to everyone.
Keyboard is fantastic, however, keyboard cover came smashed up. Packaging seemed fine so cover was packed damaged. Maybe a good product but no care or consideration as to what is shipped.
Very good. Typing feels like enjoying the life.
Absolutely love it! Looks amazing and my typing speed has improved a lot. Very solid and long lasting keyboard. Already considering to buy one also for my sister.

Typing experience was bad because of the space bar
I ran over mine with a truck. ( . . . don't ask.) I really didn't think it was going be ok, but I opened the mangled box, and it looked fine. Not even a scratch or smudge on the key board. Works fine. Not a single faulty key. The USB plug took one for the team, but all else was fine. No lie. Pretty great!
The battery only lasts a few days if the lights are on full power other than that it is a nice keyboard that connects to my Mac mini M1 without a USB dongle. Very pleased with it so far.
The keyboard is absolutely beautiful. It's really just a pleasure to look at and to type on.
Decided to treat myself and i couldn’t be happier
The number pad layout is throwing me off a lot of times.
My son stole it for first week We both love the response, look and weight.
Amazing keyboard, silent red switches are great!
Keyboard price was on on the cheaper scale, the delivery was a bit slower than what I wanted. But regardless I'm very happy with my new keyboard, the product build oozes quality.
Rattling housing. Poor quality. Customer care dosn`t care at all. Disappointing experience to be honest.
Love the size, feel and look of the keyboard. I would not recommend getting RGB version. If you have the RGB lights on you can see right through the white key caps (this is my first time with white key caps so maybe they all do that?). Another issue I had with the keyboard occurs when I'm typing. I would hear this "ting" noise every time I press down on the keyboard (I believe this may be do to the aluminum fuselage). I bought 2 F96 boards and only the Coral Sea one had this issue. Contacting support was a hit or miss. Sometimes I would have to follow up to see if they received my previous email even when they replied to my first one. Overall, I love the 96% layout and the colour/design of the board but I don't think I would be recommending it any time soon.
I ordered the Pink switch as I was hoping for a mechanical keyboard with not too much noise since I'm planning to use my keyboard in the office. However, it's very silent (maybe good for some people), and doesn't feel that I'm typing on a mechanical keyboard. I was hoping for a little more noise/clicks while typing. One thing I didn't like is that you don't have any video that compares the sound of different switches. So, the buyer cannot different between different typing experiences. I sent an email to the support and received a scale about the noise level of different switches. But when you have these many options, you should have a video that clearly tells the difference (in this case, different click sound levels).
A very compact, good quality keyboard!
Amazing keyboard. Just buy it. Cherry Browns feel beautiful.
I love my new keyboard. Is truly a great keyboard to work with. I searched a lot before making the investment, and it was worth it.
Absolutely BEST keyboard I've ever owned. The metal casing is a very nice touch that makes it feel heavy and well made. Will be buying more of different colors
I like the smaller size with all keys. And pink switch is really the best fit for me. Amazing keyboard!
Hi, please do not count my rate, I wanted to rate you as N/A as I have not been able to receive the keyboard yet. I understand that once the product is in the custody of the courier, then you lose control of the package; however, if I can give you any feedback, It would be that you need to choose a better courier, my parcel is lost and I have been asking the courier for an answer and they have not been able to provide me with an ETA - the same situation has happened with the same courier for a different product that I bought with a different company, so it is not a unique situation. Lastly, I've touched base with your Customer Service team regarding this issue, but they have told me that the parcel is with the courier, which I understand as it isn't much you can say about it since it is out of your control. I will wait a bit more; otherwise, if the courier does not deliver the keyboard I will be asking for a refund soon, but just to put things in perspective, you are asking for feedback on your product assuming that I've already received it and use it while in reality the parcel is lost and I am still waiting. Thanks
High quality build with everything immaculately placed. Love the clickety-clack of the keys. Took a day or two to get used to but now off and running. Love it!
How do you turn off the dongle light
Very heavy, doesn't move at all when typing. Look beautiful, keycap is best I have used from Out of Box so far.
It's just the best keyboard; I love the sound and feel of it
The Cherry Silver keys are like butter to type on and the keyboard is nice and weighty! I let two of my friends play around with the keyboard and they both said they were definitely considering grabbing one as well. Awesome purchase, would buy again if and when I need more keyboards!
Fantastic keyboard, the switches provide a very responsive feel when typing with the bonus of looking totes pogger.
This keyboard really adds joy to my workdays. I really like typing on it and it frees up space on my desk. My mouse hand is more in front of me because of it and it reduces shoulder pain. I find it absolutely beautiful and everyone who sees it want one. It is a bit pricey but when you open the box and look at the craftmanship, you can tell this is a top quality product.
love the keyboard, it is nice to type on and the colour is like candy to the eyes . Also great service , as the board was shipped faulty, and they sent a new one out immediately. very good service :)
This keyboard is super cute and sturdy. It's material is heavy and feels really high end! Recommend as a starting keyboard!
I am so happy I got this. The build quality is great. The pink switches are awesome tactile but quite.
The texture and weight of everything is really well done, and the cherry switches really work well
With the Cherry MX Pink switches, I have never felt something so smooth and quiet in my life. Completely worth every penny spent and more. The colour options are amazing and I truly feel this is an amazing pre-built set.
I bought this keyboard because I hoped it would improve my typing speed as well as please my ears. The sound of the brown switches with these caps is beautiful. It’s a pleasure to work with and though I’m still getting used to it, I couldn’t go back to a low profile keyboard.
Happy to have a high quality keyboard. Important to take the time to get used to any new tech product.
Phenomenal keyboard, from the feel of clicking and the looks
Incredibly sturdy and heavy duty KB. It will last me through 4-5 computer upgrades. I wish the cheat sheet for configuring the KB with MAC keys was taylored. The sheet is for PC but my PC keys are replaced so hard to remember the combination. Also wish they could provide a widget so I could reprogram Function keys on the fly.
