NZXT Function Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review

NZXT has had a lot of success in recent years, with their continued legacy of award-winning cases being further expanded by some of the best power supplies and AIO coolers on the market. However, they’ve also released some other big hitters, such as their motherboards, speakers, headsets, keyboards and mice, which are all proving popular for those wanting that clean aesthetic that the NZXT ecosystem provides. The original Function keyboard was great when it launched two years ago (review), but clearly, NZXT thinks they can do better, as today they’re releasing the Function 2!

NZXT Function 2

The Function 2 comes packed to the brim with high-end features too, such as their latest optical-mechanical pre-lubricated switches, doubleshot PBT keycaps, built-in noise dampening materials, an aluminium top plate and wickedly fast response times thanks to its 8000Hz polling rate support. While there’s nothing really innovative or new here, it’s certainly ticking all the right boxes for a high-end keyboard, and that’s certainly nothing wrong with that!


All Fast Everything

  • NZXT Swift Optical Switches have a linear, lightweight feel with a 0.2 ms response time, a 100-million key press guarantee, and 1 mm or 1.5 mm adjustable actuation.
  • 8,000 Hz polling rate transmits input signals 8x faster than most gaming keyboards, ensuring lightning-fast responsiveness.

Feels As Good As It Plays

  • Pre-lubricated switches and plate-mounted stabilizers guarantee smooth, quiet keystrokes.
  • Double-shot PBT keycaps feature two layers of plastic to preserve legends and prevent fading over time.
  • Dual-layer of sound-dampening foam enhances acoustics by absorbing unwanted pinging noises.
  • Tape-enhanced PCB (aka tape mod) reduces hollowness for an elevated sound profile.

Switch It Up

  • Hot-swappable switches allow easy switch replacement without soldering using the included keycap and switch puller tools.

Includes two extra switch types with different actuation forces (4 x 35 g, 4 x 45 g) for out-of-the-box experimentation that can be tailored to any play style. The current actuation force is 40g.

As a child still in my 30's (but not for long), I spend my day combining my love of music and movies with a life-long passion for gaming, from arcade classics and retro consoles to the latest high-end PC and console games. So it's no wonder I write about tech and test the latest hardware while I enjoy my hobbies!
