Func is no longer just a company that makes some stellar mouse pads, as it's released a mouse (the MS-3) and now a mechanical keyboard. The keyboard is called the KB-460, and it uses Cherry MX Red mechanical switches with individual key illumination. There's also full N-key rollover on the KB-460, so you won't have to worry about any commands getting missed during a frenetic gaming session. Customization is a key part of this keyboard, as Func not only allows you to adjust the backlighting level, but you can also re-assign the keys to whatever suits you best. Want certain keys remapped or disabled altogether? You can do that! There are five profiles to store your settings, with the 128KB of onboard memory keeping everything there regardless of where you take the KB-460.
The keyboard features a Func Mode (hold the Fn key and hit F12), which activates any re-assigned keys and disables the Windows button. Everything can be configured with the Setting Software, however if everything is already to your liking, you can just plug in the KB-460 and get right to typing/gaming. Func wants users to feel at ease with the KB-460, and to also customize it to their needs (hence the re-assigning function). There are a multitude of key layouts available for the KB-460; so US, UK, Nordic, French, German, and Russian users can have the exact keyboard they need. The vast majority of the pictures below are with the Nordic layout, however you can check out all six on the keyboard's website.
Each Func KB-460 has a 1.8 meter braided cable and two USB 2.0 passthrough ports, plus a palm rest. Retail price on the KB-460 is $99.95 at launch ($119.95 afterwards), with availability starting today.
