Plate-mounted & Screw-in Stabilizers

M1 V3 barebone kit now features pre-installed plate-mounted TPU double-shot stabilizers, a change from the original M1 QMK, aimed at streamlining the assembly process and offering convenience for keyboard beginners. Additionally, it includes extra PCB Mount/Screw-in stabilizers to accommodate the varied preferences of users.

Fully Upgraded Knob

This adjustment is based on user experience and feedback. M1 V3 Series features a new encoder and a levitating structure to avoid scratches against the case, as reported in the previous version. 


By removing the side accent, the consistent support from MonsGeek fans allows us to balance costs further and focus on delivering an enthusiast-level keyboard at a reasonable price.

South-facing PCB

The south-facing PCB of M1 v3 avoids causing interference with Cherry profile keycaps, offering more compatibility and flexibility.



Customizable RGB

M1 V3 offers approximately 20 preset backlight modes, which allow users to adjust the brightness and flowing speed levels. Moreover, it supports a wide range of RGB effects, with over 16.8 million colors available. Users can also install a JSON file to access even more lighting effects and configurations.

N-Key Rollover

The N-Key Rollover technology allows all keys to work simultaneously and ensures every keystroke is recorded and prevents ghosting.


Polycarbonate Plate

M1 V3 QMK keyboard diy kit utilizes a PC plate to offer flexibility surpassing that of metal, while also reducing low-frequency resonance.



MonsGeek M1 V3 supports VIA for cross-platform (Linux/Mac/Windows) advanced keyboard configuration.

This feature is exclusively for international version of M1 V3.
