ASUS ROG Strix Scope RX Keyboard Review

Finding the right gaming keyboard is a little more challenging than most people expect, especially with so many great options out there.

At the same, when you get your hands on any product that’s a part of the ASUS Republic of Gamers product lineup you know you’re getting something quality, something well-engineered, and something that’s going to help you dominate the online gaming landscape.

We can tell you that the ASUS ASUS ROG Strix Scope RX keyboard is hands down one of the best gaming keyboards money can buy.

Overall Design and Functionality

The first thing that you’ll notice about the ASUS ASUS ROG Strix Scope RX keyboard is that it is a world-class mechanical gaming keyboard through and through.

The mechanical switches have a gorgeous look to them, are a little bit “higher” sitting on the face of the keyboard itself, and a whole unit has a clean, modern, and sleek kind of look about it that a lot of other premium level gaming keyboards don’t.

Key Switches

The key switches themselves are fantastic, with hybrid ASUS Optical Switch technology built right in.

This technology combines traditional mechanical keyboard switch solutions with innovative and proprietary infrared laser light solutions pioneered by ASUS themselves – all of which produces a keyboard that feels great on your fingers but also has next to no lag time whatsoever.


That infrared laser-like technology combined with the reliability and consistent feel of mechanical switches takes things to the next level.

Your fingers are going to fly across the ASUS ASUS ROG Strix Scope RX keyboard like they can’t with more traditional and productivity-focused keyboards, bouncing off of the mechanical switches and finding the next key to hammer with no difficulty at all.

Overall responsiveness is just next level.

Dust and Water Resistant

This keyboard is designed to resist dust and water, with built in IP56 water and dust resistance materials throughout.

All of this is going to help keep your keyboard alive a lot longer than the other gaming keyboards out there that do not have this kind of protection. You won’t have to worry about dust, debris, or and accidental spill destroying your favourite new gaming keyboard, that’s for sure.

Designed with FPS Gamers in Mind

The thing that we really feel separates the ASUS ASUS ROG Strix Scope RX keyboard from the rest of the pack – including the other Strix Scope keyboards from ASUS – is that this one has obviously been designed with FPS gamers in mind.

Both the Stealth and Control keys on this keyboard are a little bit larger than they are more traditional keyboards, helping FPS gamers a bit more while guaranteeing that they don’t have to take their eyes off of the screen for a second to find these critical keys in high-pressure moments.

All in all, it’s not hard to see why so many gamers swear by the ASUS ASUS ROG Strix Scope RX keyboard when they set up their dream gaming rig.
