Introduction

Func is a company that is likely not well known by many computer enthusiasts, except for perhaps some of the diehards in the crowd. In truth, Func has been around for quite awhile, but has recently relaunched their entire product lineup, redone from the ground up, so in that sense, we’re seeing entirely new things from Func. And today we’re looking at the flagship mechanical keyboard from Func, the KB-460.

Mechanical boards have become all the rage of late, and it’s easy to see why. After you’ve used one, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without, shunning the membrane boards for the sexy individual switch designs. There’s something refreshingly satisfying about a keyboard that provides real feedback, rather than sitting there like a piece of wasted plastic. And if you’re a great touch typist, then a mechanical board is like the Autobahn for fingers.

A fully backlit mechanical keyboard that sports a sleek minimalist design and caters to discerning consumers who want something unique, the Func KB-460 is not to be confused with a “basic” mechanical board. Are you looking for plenty of standalone macro keys? Pffft, try fully integrated ones here. Is 6-Key Rollover not good enough for you, maybe you want 20KRO? Try FULL NKRO on the KB-460.

That certainly got our attention, so we had to test drive the KB-460 firsthand. While it may not look like anything particularly groundbreaking at first glance, there are some special things here. Let’s delve a bit deeper and see if the KB-460 can stand out in a widening field of mechanical keyboards.
