Func's KB-460 Mechanical Keyboard Hits Shelves

Func has released its new keyboard, the KB-460. This is a mechanical gaming keyboard that is built around the core principle of simplicity and functionality.

It features Cherry MX Red switches, which have a travel distance of 4 mm, with actuation at 2 mm along the way. They are also linear and need an actuation force of 45 grams. Beyond this, the keyboard features red backlighting, along with a large integrated aluminum backplate. It also comes with a wrist rest.

Other features include Func mode, which disables the windows key, driverless operation, built-in 128 KB of memory for storing profiles, as well as integrated media controls and a two-port USB hub.

The keyboard's MSRP is set at $119.95, though as a launch promotion, Func has temporarily priced it at $99.95.

    Looks pretty nice. What kind of layout is that? The larger enter button which I've seen on older layouts but all those different keys and ill-placed to what I'm use to seeing.

    Evan20x, Not sure why they used it but a quick look at fUnc's website and I found out that the image is the Nordic layout with standard US, UK, French, German and Russian also available.

    I love MX Red. I simply love it. But I'd rather have keyboard functionality and extra buttons and whatnot and live without MX Red.

    I would pay a lot of money for an MX Red keyboard with customizable buttons or at least extra buttons... If any

    Evan20x: It's Swedish layout (finish may look the same too), the other keys are poorly placed because we've got three additional characters to put in there (ÅÄÖ.) (As for nordic layout the norweigans would use Ø instead of Ö and Æ instead of Ä, the danish would do the same but change place of the two for some reason.)

    I think the brand was bought up by some other company, that company may be Swedish. For some reason they replied to my mail in Swedish at least.
