Just received my Skyloong GK87 and have it attached to my Macbook pro. It keeps disconnecting after 15-20min away from the computer. I need to re-plug in order to use the keyboard. At this rate, this keyboard is not usable. Is there a setting I'm not aware of?

Why put your logo on the keyboard, that ruins the esthetic

Not sure if this has been discussed, but the model they’re selling is not wireless. If you want wireless, you should buy the GK87S. I got mine from YMDK on AliExpress.

A decent alternative would be either the Everglide SK87 or SK108. Both come in white; are wireless and have only an easily removable sticker on the bottom as a brand dentifier.

Well this is awkward, even this cheap keyboard has 5-pin Hot Swappable pcb

Zafer94It's honestly baffling why 5 pin isn’t just standard in pcb design. I get technical redundancy in plate mount scenarios, but for hot swap applications it is a must to ensure alignment, stability, and non-destructive compatibility with expensive switches. I assume the potential for slight variables in tolerance to cause interference is why it’s so rare, but I really can’t see it being *that* much of an actual issue versus the benefits.

At this price, it's a nice entry point into mech boards, especially with per-key RGB backlight. But it has north facing switches, which means some keycaps (mostly cherry profile) will not bottom out properly. I also don't know how much customization the software allows, but it has a windows and mac version which is nice to see. A good alternative is the XD87 which is south facing, has a hot-swap and solderable version, runs QMK and is compatible with VIA https://caniusevia.com/. And I'm pretty sure the case is exactly the same, without the big logo on the front. It's a bit more expensive though.
LouwiiI get why they went North-facing; on the whole, more customers will probably care about backlit letters on pudding / shine-through caps than being able to mount Cherry profile. That being said there are some options for the rest of us; there are spacing washers you can put on the stems that resolve the interference issue. There are also a few new switches that have re-shaped housings to avoid it altogether; Kailh's Silent Box Browns, for example.

You sold it better than I did! I totally love it though, it's so easy and so fast to change your keyboard config with it.

NBSHFTRFor $70, this seems like a fine starting point. You could also check out the Womier K87 for another entry point 5-pin hotswap with a good feature set.
