Review of Func KB-460 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard

 

Conclusion


The Func KB-460 is just an excellent keyboard overall, you can seamlessly go from typing a term paper to playing your favorite game.

Yes the KB-60 is listed as a gaming keyboard, but I think everyone will be able to appreciate it and the features it has.

The physical construction is very solid, it’s a fairly heavy keyboard honestly, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing.

The USB cable is braided and very long and I very much like the orange and black colors. It’s a little thing yes, but the coloring helps make life a bit easier and I’m all for that.

Func does include a wrist rest for those that like them, but it’s optional so you don’t have to use it if you don’t want to.

The included software is optional but I highly recommend installing it as it’s very much worth it for the functionality it adds. Sure you can program macros for gaming and change the functions of the keys, but I really like the ability to disable certain keys, that alone is worth installing the software for.

The KB-460 is made for gaming but it doesn’t have any dedicated macro keys and that might bother some gamers. I like gaming and I try and do a lot of it but I’m not a hardcore gamer, I really don’t use macros in gaming so it’s not an issue for me.

The keys have a soft-touch finish to them, they really almost feel like rubber, but not as tacky as rubber would be, this does make them comfortable to type on.

Yes they are Cherry Red MX switches and you have to like these to enjoy using the KB-460. Some people like MX Red, some people like blue, some people prefer brown, it’s all personal preference. For me the MX Red switches are great for all around use, I find them comfortable for typing and well as gaming.

As far as the price, I really couldn’t find this many places in the United States for sale yet. I only found it online at NCIX.com where it was priced at $129.99 which seems to be about the right price for a decent mechanical keyboard these days.  I would have to say yes it’s worth the price but people might not want to pay that much for a keyboard. I would, but then again I’ve been using mechanical keyboard for years and once you use one you can’t really go back to the membrane style ever again. Mechanical keyboards are more costly, that’s just how it is, like anything you’re paying for quality.

All in all I like the KB-460, I may have finally found a replacement for the mechanical keyboard I’ve been using for the past seven years, and that’s saying a lot truly.
