Fnatic STREAK Mechanical Gaming Keyboard
It is easy to tell from the left side of the keyboard, which product we are looking at, as it is painted there in white letters! As to the frame, it is a two-part design where the aluminum top plate is shaped to match the lower plastic section for a smooth transition. To the right of STREAK, we can see a curve in the plastic, which rounds over the edges where it is handled most.
The left two-thirds of the keyboard is all in order, and the font on the cylindrical-shaped keys is easy to read. We love the play of the blue against the black, and we also see double duty of the F-keys, and to the left is a tiny Function Lock button between the Escape and F1 keys.
Moving in for a closer look, we swing up to the F-keys. The first set of four allows the user to press and hold the Function button, and if one of these four is pressed while holding it, you can cycle through the first four programmable keys.
Two more programmable keys are found on the F5 and F6 keys for a total of six, which can be customized to do just about anything. F7 can be held, and using the arrow keys, cycle through LED modes. F8 is used for intensity of the RGB LEDs and offers o, 25, 50, 100% brightness, will double click on 100%, and the next click is back to off.
F9 offers a Windows 10 feature of a Timeline version of desktop activities. F10 starts the multimedia keys, with the back one track button. F11 is used for pause and play of a track, and F12 will advance one track.
The right third of the keyboard offers all of the commands, even a silhouette of a person, which is used to cycle through the four profiles. The lock indicator LEDs are between the command keys and the arrows leaving the number pad on the right, with an additional set of arrows. However, if you look above, you will find a microphone mute button, Competition mode / on-the-fly Macro record button, the standard volume mute button, and a metal wheel to raise and lower the PC volume.
