NZXT is venturing again into the gaming peripherals space with the all-new Lift gaming mouse, Function modular mechanical keyboard, and a mouse pad. This isn't the company's first foray into input devices, but it has focused more on PC chassis, fans, RGB lighting, and the like in recent years.

The Lift is an ambidextrous mouse that has clearly been paying attention to recent design trends. It's got a low-drag paracord cable and lightweight design, complete with a flawless 16,000DPI PixArt 3389 optical sensor. This is the same sensor found in most top mice today, so you really can't go wrong with it. 

At 67g, the Lift isn't going to make headlines for its weight, but it's more than competitive with other mice like the Razer Viper. Measuring 126.8mm long, this is a relatively large mouse that looks like it should be a versatile fit for most grip styles.

Unlike most other lightweight mice, the Lift also eschews the honeycomb shell for a slightly more seamless look and comfortable grip. It is available in both white and black and looks like it should be the perfect aesthetic match for your NZXT case. 

In typical NZXT fashion, the mouse comes with RGB lighting along its base. You can control this using the NZXT CAM software, in addition to setting custom CAM profiles for different tasks.

The Function mechanical keyboard has a similar focus on design. It features sleek, angular edges, and the white aluminum top plate gives it a clean and minimalist vibe. It is outfitted with linear RGB switches by default, but the sockets are hot-swappable so you can pop your own choice of switch in.

It also has a standard bottom row, to make finding a compatible set of custom keycaps easier. The cable is a detachable USB-C cord as well, for when you want to use your own coiled cables.

The keyboard is available in three variants – the full-sized Function, the Function Tenkeyless, and a 75% Function MiniTKL. The Function and Function Tenkeyless models also come with their own wrist rests.

Finally, the new NZXT mouse pad is also available in three sizes – a 410mm, 720mm, and extra-large 900mm version. It has a stain-resistant coating to keep it clean and has been designed for a smooth, low-friction glide.
