We all know that a TKL keyboard is the narrower version of a full-size, but you don't appreciate how small the MiniTKL is until you see the box next to its compatriots. It's nice to see NZXT sticking with their clean aesthetic for the packaging.

Inside the box we have a custom NZXT purple keycap puller, key switch puller (!) and the USB Type-A to Type-C cable that gives the keyboards life.

The MiniTKL in all its compact glory. As touch-typers with many years behind the keyboard the dense nature of it brings us out in hives, but we know how popular the smaller form factor is for those of you with limited space, or who merely like everything within easy reach.

The TKL and Full-Size designs come with wrist rests - absent from the MiniTKL - and although they have three different hues we naturally have the whitest model possible here. You know what the boss is like for his white stuff.

On the left hand edge of all three you have a textured volume wheel, and three buttons to toggle audio mute, WinLock and the keyboard lighting. It's like a stealth mode button for those gaming sessions where we ignore the "well lit room" advice and get down to some marathon smiting of our enemies. Lovely.

The keen eyed amongst you will be able to spot the incredibly subtle NZXT branding just to the right of the lock indicator lights. It also gives us a chance to show how crisp the keycap font is.

This is what separates the NZXT Function from the majority of keyboards available. Hot swappable key switches. Not only have NZXT provided you with a method of using the exact weight of mechanical switches to suit your preference, but the design is such that it only takes a moment to change them and you can use any (!) of the main manufacturers of switches in your keyboard. Just want Cherry MX ones on your WASD keys? Easy. It's so user-friendly to do even if you're a technophone you will have zero issues in tailoring it to you preference.

This is honestly brilliant and I'm definitely keen on looking more into the mini keyboard. I already have a Cherry MX keyboard. Could swap them out and compare them to the Gatreon switchesQuote

They look dreadful. The whole NZXT aesthetic is dreadful. I don't give houseroom to things I simply can't stand to look at - no matter how "brilliant" the idea.Quote
