ASUS ROG Announces Strix Scope RX Keyboard

ASUS today introduced a new iteration of their Strix Scope keyboard, the Strix Scope RX. The new keyboard is now offering ASUS-developed ROG RX Red Optical Mechanical Switches - ASUS is promising consistent wobble-free keystrokes, superfast 1-millisecond response, and up to a 100-million-keystroke lifespan. ASUS says these are the first switches in the world to feature a hollow-square stem design with embedded RGB LEDs to provide all-round per-key lighting, offering near-zero debounce delay.

ASUS calls attention to the twice-as-wide CTRL key, ensuring easy, infallible access during gaming sessions, and also mentions the Stealth Key (marked by, as they say, "iconic cloaked figure") which allows for immediate hiding of all open apps and sound muting for instant privacy (an interesting feature, wonder what its perfect use case would be...). A Quick Toggle switch allows to change the top keyboard row between Media or Function (Fn) key input. The keyboard also offers a single USB 2.0 passthrough, and features dust and spill resistance. The keyboard's top plate is built out of brushed aluminium. The ASUS ROG Strix Scope RX will be available from Q1 2021 in Benelux with an MSRP of €139.

Seriously, can't stand the stupid gamer font. I saw Logitech G810, G910 years ago and fell in love with the clean font. After I bought my keyboard, I've been looking for a professional looking font keycap set that is also shine-through but haven't found any. Either shine-through sets are gamer-y font or professional font sets aren't shine-through. My options are also limited to AliExpress.

Speaking of G810, didn't Logitech do the exact same square, rgb led on the middle custom switches few years back?

What's with you and puddings? Yes 30 sth USD for the set and $230+ for shipping.
Otoh Chinese generic ones don't have the professional font I'm looking for. Q isn't connected for example. Or they fuck up the modifier keycap fonts. I know I'm being nitpicky but since I bought a chinese (or rather indonesian) board, I'll have to live with the consequence.

Because thats the way the world works these days. And also, it's hard to convey joking/sarcasm without an obligatory /sarcasm after.

With this particular keyboard in the post, the CTRL key would be the main annoyance since its obviously not the standard size. :( So if one would get the HyperX pudding set for this, it wouldn't work out completely for them.

Only thing I like about this board is the large font, even with as tacky as said font is.

Maybe I should've added an emoji. I don't think I was being sarcastic. Just cheeky.

Hey, realistically nobody's really gonna change the keycaps for this keyboard. If anybody ever actually buys this board.
