Fnatic Streak RGB review: A gaming keyboard that punches well above its price

Spread the love

The esports company finally made an esports-worthy peripheral. We took a look last year at the Fnatic Clutch G1 gaming mouse, and I was not impressed. When Fnatic got in touch to send us its second-gen Streak keyboard, I wasn’t expecting much.

And yet the Fnatic Streak is, as of this moment, probably the best bang-for-your-buck RGB keyboard on the market. Quite a turnaround.

Competition quality

For an esports company, Fnatic sure is good about reining in its designs. I know that’s because these are technically made by Func, the Swedish company Fnatic acquired. It’s remarkable how minimalist and distinctly not “Gamer” the Streak looks.

Aside from the RGB lighting, the Streak looks like a keyboard you could bring into the office unapologetically. The corners are all rounded off, the branding is fairly tasteful, and the chassis itself is made from a dark-gray aluminum. For a keyboard with few defining traits, the Streak still somehow manages to look unique, and surprisingly high-end. I think the Mionix Wei still takes the prize for “Gaming Keyboard That Most Looks Like A Boutique Keyboard,” but the Streak isn’t far behind.
