Final Thoughts & Conclusion
The STRAFE RGB MK.2 is everything a high-end keyboard should be. Aesthetically, it looks amazing with its brushed aluminum top, vivid configurable RGB LED’s, stylish volume wheel and textured spacebar/wrist rest. Thanks to the 100% anti-ghosting full key rollover it didn’t miss a beat while both gaming and writing this review. While gaming, I really enjoyed the Cherry MX Silent switches as they couldn’t be heard when communicating with my team mates and were very responsive when pressed. I also thought the included FPS/MOBA key caps a nice bonus and they felt quite nice once I got used to contours on them. When configurating the lighting effects with the downloaded iCUE software, I found that the software was easy to use and it had a nice variety of pre-configured lighting effects with Rainbow Wave being my personal favorite. My only negative about the keyboard would be the exclusion of the profile, brightness and windows lock key from the RGB effects but this is a minor issue as they can be at least configured to be single color. This is probably one of the best mechanical keyboards I have ever used and would have no problem recommending it to anyone looking for a high performing keyboard packed full of amazing features.
