*Firmware and driver need to be set up on Windows 10.
The keyboard is so nice and high quality! The switches and keycaps themselves feel great. Even without the bluetooth option, I’m able to connect it to my iPad through the usb-c port. I love it and have already recommended keyboards and keycaps from this company to friends!
Great keyboard. Feels very sturdy and well made!
After the Cherry Pink F96 KAT keyboard was back in stock, I ordered it immediately and I was pleasantly surprised with how fast it arrived! I love my new keyboard! The make is great, good quality, sturdy and feels awesome typing everyday! I would highly recommend it to everyone looking for a good quality, long lasting keyboard.
The keyboard is sturdy and the built quality is simply amazing. The only downside found was a bit of rattle hitting the spacebar, but so far soooo goood!
it really cool
Very solid build. Arrived quickly and well packaged. It has a nice feel when typing and good sound. The lighting would be better if it came through the caps, rather than backlit. Some of the lettering on keycaps could be better quality. The comma, for example, looks like a full-stop character. Overall a nice product.
Very nice keyboard. Everything works smoothly and as expected after the first few weeks of usage.
Overall it's a great product. But I think it would be better if they can add indicators on arrow keys (like F and J keys). It's hard to track arrow keys without move your eyes from your screen to your keyboards.
Beautiful Keyboard, space saver, and bluetooth latency is basically non-existent. I love the fact that I can quickly and easily change which computer my keyboard connects too. The RGB is beautiful, and with the White KAT Keys it really makes it look so elegant. It's such a pleasure to type and I would highly recommend, if you have the time and materials, to lube the cherry switches. I have MX Browns, and after adding the lubricant, it sounds and feels 10x better than it already was. I've seen people add foam to dampen the sound even further and that also sounds really nice as well. My only gripe I have with this keyboard is that the software to customize shortcuts, RGB variation, etc. was a little difficult to find, and it is not programable through apple iOS, you have to use a PC. Definitely not a deal breaker for me because you can still select a wide range of RGB patterns and colours with just the keyboard. I mainly use a Mac on my personal time and my work computer won't authorize the software, so I had to use my brother's PC. It may seem like a lot of money, and to be honest, it is a little pricey, but I think it definitely worth the investment if you can afford it. 10/10.
Upgraded from a Das keyboard with cherry brown which lasted me over 10 years old to the F96, Love the cherry red and how well built this keyboard is
I love it! I ended up desoldering the board and replacing the stock foam with sorbothane but man, after all of the love and modification, the keyboard is amazing. I love the KAT profile keycaps, the condensed 96% layout, and the design. Highly recommended!
Keyboard feels like it is well made the key caps are nice. Slight ringing noise I presume from the metallic plate when in use, typing is still very smooth though. LEDs and their sequences are lovely. I am however having major problems with bluetooth connectivity to Windows machines. No problem on MacOS but it seems to drop the connection from Windows machines frequently on restarts and requires unpairing and pairing to restore it. Overall fairly happy though.
The board feels great, the pink switches are soft and quite, the key caps feel sturdy and the font is clean. The only issues I have is that the switches in the numb pad area feel a little different maybe those were not lubed, if factory lubing is a thing in not sure
Love the slim design ☺️
It was delivered promptly. The box and stuff were super premium feeling. Addicted to the KAT keycap profile and it's smooth-matte-y finish, quite a nice deal that it's part of this board, `they're kinda rare otherwise(?) Keyboard's a hefty heavy boi, feels very solid and stable on the desk. Wish they came in more solid plain colours, or let us choose the keycap/frame colour combo.
Great first mechanical keyboard
I owned a fair amount of kbs b4 this: alt drop, tofu, womier k66, anne pro2, discipline v2. So I was not really expecting such a high quality from a sub $200 keyboard like this one, but I was completely wrong. First, the stabs and switches are fully lubed, this makes the typing sounds and feels like high-end / premium kbs. The stabs, although weird designed, but turned out impressively stable, way more stable than the one that I have on alt drop high profile. Also, I would say the original white keycaps is super comfortable to type on, while the joker set is way cooler!! The case is heavy enough, feel very premium and high end to me. This is a big surprise from iqunix! Good job team!
Typing feels great on this keyboard. I like the responsive and tactical feel of the brown switches. Overall, feels like a high quality keyboard build. I'm satisfied so far!
Best keyboard I’ve used
Awesome keyboard. Bought it for work but it also can be modified in the future. Lube and new key caps are on the way. Can’t wait to make it even greater!
Great Keyboard! It’s exactly what I wanted. Bluetooth works like it should, switches feel great, and the rgb is honestly pretty nice once you settle down into a light pattern that isn’t too aggressive.
Love it so much! It is very sleek and classic.
Love it so far! Total ship time from order to arrival was about 1,5 weeks so very pleased about that. The shipping info on the tracking website is just slightly delayed so the keyboard showed up earlier than I thought. The packaging was very sturdy, well packed and felt very premium. Was very pleased to see quite a lot accessories included in the box. I bought the brown switches and they feel very nice. There is a bit of key wobble though but to be honest it doesn't bother me and I barely notice it. The spacebar has slight springy '' ring" to it but it's alright. Nothing I can't fix. RGB options are PLENTY. A lot of functions, and the manual made it easy to get a feel for the necessary keys to change the RGB modes and colours etc. Manual was both in English and Chinese. So far an amazing purchase, even though it's a bit on the high price.
Love love love this keyboard!! I have limited space on my keyboard tray and this gives me more room for my mouse. I love the fact that it’s wireless so I don’t have to worry about plugging it in.

Overall, the keyboard and KAT caps are awesome! Wish that the arrow keys have some differentiation, e.g. dimples or different key texture, so they are easier to find (since the keys are all cramped together). Also, media function keys should be marked for easy access (perhaps on the front of the caps), instead of referring to the manual and trying to remember.
I love this keyboard! I have a Vortex mech keyboard which I also adore but this layout ticks all the boxes. Number pad and arrow keys are a dream when using Keyboard Maestro. The blue switches are a clicky good time too. Buy it.
I'm fairly new to the mechanical world, but this is my second keyboard after the Anne Pro 2. The build is super solid and the KAT key caps are nice and smooth and only downside is they only come in white. I'm really happy with the feel and sound. **I had to pay customs (Canada) of $23 which was annoying. Despite iQunix efforts, DHL dinged me with a "$0.47 duty" which required a $15 handing fee. Anyway...**
Love this a lot! Extremely pretty and user friendly!
I love this keyboard. Silent, yet gives you the feel of a premium mechanical keyboard. The build quality is amazing. The battery life is ridiculously amazing. The Bluetooth works out of the box to all my devices.
Purchasing Experience: The delivery to Pakistan was not through a courier and in this pandemic I couldn't trust my country's postal system. Their customer service was very helpful. I sent this to the US and from there I asked someone to send me via DHL. Keyboard: This is my first mechanical keyboard, so I don't know how the switches and keys are supposed to feel like. But right away it felt so much better than anything I have ever used. The difference is unmistakable even after using this non-stop for 4 hours. It has perfect fit and finish. I love the sound of this keyboard as well. They don't have Mac Software so I customised some settings on Windows. I have yet to explore its full programming potential. Suggestion: Please make KAT keycaps with translucent legends and some video tutorials showing clever software customisations.
The keyboard is really great. Solid, and keys were all even and aligned no noticeable flaws. Came pre-lubbed. I like it so much I bought a bag just to bring it from office to home. Because the layout of the keyboard is unique. I don’t want my brain to have to adjust between layouts after coming home from work. I’d rather get used to this one forever. Only 2 things I think can be improved. I wish there was a hotswap version for this since the rgb version doesn’t have cherry pinks available. And if there was a full layout version I would prefer it better. Since I’m a professional 3D artist, I need to use all the keys for hotkeys. I know the SLIM is exactly what I described but I don’t like it’s design. Other than that if you like the clean design of the keyboard itself, buy it. You get what you see it’s exactly what it says it is.
Worth every cent!
Very happy with my purchase overall. Just a really solid all-around keyboard. In terms of build quality, typing experience, ease-of-use, everything is just really pleasant. Bluetooth functions well and included in the box is a small USB receiver so it's compatible with PCs with no Bluetooth onboard. Personally, I really enjoy the weighty and solid spacebar. It's using Costar stabilizers so I haven't tried to open it up yet, but all the larger-than-standard keys feel well lubed and solid to use. I've got the KAT profile keycaps, so they feel a bit more sturdy with slightly thicker construction than the standard Cherry profile ones. Not much in terms of cons. Shipping took about two weeks for me to Canada so it wasn't too bad. It would be nice if there are options for non-Cherry switches, but I understand from a sales perspective. It's obviously quite pricey for a pre-built mechanical keyboard, but based on my personal experience with this hobby, the F96 is just about as good as it gets before moving onto the really expensive, custom built models.
Wonderful packaging. The keyboard is hefty. I chose the MX pink as this will be my main office driver. MX Pink does have a shorter travel and feels slightly like a membrane switch. Shipping to Australia took about 3 weeks.
Keyboard meets long awaited expectations! Shipping to the Netherland took a bit longer than expected, roughly 35 days.
I waited about two weeks for the keyboard to arrive, and it was more than worth it. The build is high quality and solid. The aesthetics are clean and satisfying. The typing experience is quite pleasurable. Coming from the standard Mac keyboard, I will say there is an adjustment period. But that is quickly fading. I would highly recommend this keyboard.
Bought this for a present for my loved one, couldn't get it in time, but ofc it`s COVID`s fault. Special shout out to Gamanchan for helping with delivery, was really nervous about that part. Keyboard itself is great, would like to buy one for me next, but need some grey+yellow /dark blue+yellow coloring (and maaaaaybe some Cyrillic layout).
I just received my keyboard, this is my first mechanical keyboard. Here is my review of shopping experience and the product. Shopping and communication: Very simple and the owner responded very fast to my questions through chat. Very pleasant. (5/5) Shipping: This is a nightmare and Covid definitely exacerbated the issue. Shipping was from China to New York City. The keyboard was shipped next day after placing the order (April22) and arrived my place on May26. There were no update from the shipping company until the last week. (0/5 but not the fault of Iqunix I guess) Packaging: Outer packaging came quite damaged, inner box was okay, the box containing the cable and the usb dongle was completely squashed inside the box but not damaged. The manual was not included so I had to google from other reviewers on how to pair. (3/5) Keyboard: The keyboard is heavy and sturdy. I don't have any complains about the keys, I don't think it wobbles but I don't have anything else to compare to. I do wonder if the white keys will turn yellow on the long run. A few notes on cosmetic blemishes. Num 5 key has a small light smudge on it cannot get rid of; the left CTRL key has a small chip on the edge; all bottom row key to the right of the space bar have visible mold mark on the side facing you; the left corner of the upper frame piece has several white scratch marks. All of these are more pronounced when looking at certain angles and don't really show up on camera. (4/5) Software: Mine is not LED so I only install the software to install the driver. Windows cannot find the right driver for the USB dongle, It has error Code 10 and I still cannot resolve it. That being said, the keyboard initially paired and had stability issues (blinking green light every few seconds). But it seems to resolved itself out after a while (I don't know what happened). The connection is fine...for now. I don't know how to check battery level, is it possible? The reading from windows doesn't look accurate as it is still 100% after I use it for a few hours. (3/5) Typing experience: It feels great! I still have to get used to the layout of the keyboard as I have a hard time finding the arrow keys. I am used to a low-profile keyboard, so the higher profile of the keyboard strains my wrist a bit, might need to use a wrist rest. But I think these will just take a little time to get used to. (5/5) Personal recommendation: The color scheme of this keyboard is almost identical as the Apple's magic keyboard. I personally would like a darker gun metal frame or even black as an option. But the overall experience with the keyboard is great so far if the bluetooth stays stable!! :)
It feels great to type on and the design looks good.
We are a family of concert pianists and musicians. We are very picky about anything that touches our finger tips. F96 is Real quality. It feels substantial right out of the box. The KAT profile with Cherry red is my new love, so now this keyboard is my new full time driver. The only thing I wish for is more keycap options. For example, I want the arrow keys to stand out more in my peripheral vision. Like a different color. But Especially for sharing F96 with my 65-year-old mom, who really needs to see the Mac keys layout. She loves typing on it too! Overall, my concert pianist fingers love
Awesome keyboard!!! So clean and so solidly built! Shipped the same day - within hours and got to the states in under a week! AMAZING!
This is a really great keyboard. Customer service was also fantastic. Thanks so much!
This is the second Keyboard I’ve purchased from Iqunix and I’m even more impressed the second time around. Build quality, functionality, presentation, and customer service have been outstanding. If you’re on the fence about purchasing any of the keyboards on offer I can guarantee you’ll love it.
It is working fine! Bluetooth is ok. The keycaps are of good quality. No complaint except the part where I saw in Taehatypes that his unit had dampener and mine does not :( Since I have small hands, I think I will order the cherry profile caps instead. If you do not plan on tinkering, it will be a one and done investment keyboard! But if you don’t, maybe it will be easier to get keyboard that has hotswappable PCB instead. The strength of this keyboard is no question the build quality! So heavy and nicely finished.
Straight up the best keyboard I ever owned. Keycaps combined with brown cherry switches feels great. Special thanks for a custom build - black F96 aluminum base + white KAT keycaps looks hella good.
I love this keyboard, the customer service has been fantastic and I appreciate them making a custom keyboard out of the black version of the F96 and the KAT one. Right from the get go it feels premium when you open the box and the keyboard itself is the most solid thing on my desk. The modifiers sound amazing, they are all consistent and have barely any wobble to them. Being from the UK, I'm trying to get used to the ANSI layout since I'm very much used to the larger enter button on every other keyboard I use at home and university. But it is worth it. The only complains I have is that the cherry brown keycaps feel a little scratchy, but I'm not sure if that's to do with the fact that I've only ever used cherry reds and the tactile bump is something I am still getting used to. There is also a small amount of resonance from the middle keys. It's noticeable and would be nice if they felt as nice as the modifiers. The wireless performance has been great with both my Mac and windows PC, although I use it wired for my PC. The RGB is extremely smooth and vibrant with a decent amount of customisation available on the board or through the hard to find software. Other than those complaints, I can tell that this is not going anywhere from my desk and I absolutely recommend this keyboard if you're like me and really need a number pad and an elegant keyboard in one. Coming from a corsair K95 to this, its night and day. I hope this layout spreads around like 60% has been doing.
