Mechanical keyboards are gradually becoming mainstream in the gaming world and with more and more companies jumping on the peripherals wagon, it’s of no surprise that the amount of features and build quality is on the up, whilst the price is decreasing, as more and more brands are competing against each other. With the recent announcement of RBG Cherry MX switches, 2014 is expected to be an exciting year for mechanical keyboards. That said, does a good keyboard really require lots of features? We’ve seen the likes of Ducky, who have several crazy lighting modes, Corsair with many additional macro buttons or Tesoro with their gamer styled keyboards, but are these really a necessity? Today I am taking a look at a Func’s latest product, the KB-460, a mechanical keyboard that doesn’t focus so much on features and looks, but instead performance and comfort.
Func, create simple yet decent performing peripherals. We’ve had the chance to review the Func MS-3 in the past, which walked away clutching an award, so if that is anything to go by, I have high hopes that the KB-460 will fair well in an already crowded market. The keyboard abides by Func’s design trends and has a few features packed into a simple looking design and hopefully it’ll be a great performer. Before I take a look at the keyboard, let’s just check out what Func had crammed into the KB-460:
