Mad Catz S.T.R.I.K.E 7 Keyboard Reviewed



When you think of a keyboard, you probably think of a pretty standard hunk of plastic with roughly 108 keys. Now if we’re talking about a gaming keyboard, there might be a few extra buttons and some lights to change things up. However, I bet that you wouldn’t have dreamed up anything close to the S.T.R.I.K.E 7 keyboard from Mad Catz that’s pictured above.

This monstrosity is unlike any other keyboard that I’ve ever seen. It actually breaks apart into seven different pieces (hence the number 7 in the name), to allow for maximum customization. You can move the number pad to the left side, or separate it from the rest of the keyboard entirely. There are three different wrist rest pads that can be moved to different areas.

Of course, the thing you’ll notice most is that there is a 3.5-inch LCD screen sitting at the head of the unit. This allows you to perform a variety of functions, including controlling things like volume and media on your PC. You’ll also be able to view menus for a TeamSpeak server, and use up to 36 different macros on this touchscreeen. So what is the price for this crazy keyboard? $300. This makes it one of the most expensive gaming keyboards on the market. If you’re wondering whether or not it’s worth the price, check out the full review over at GamerFront.
