Part of any gamer's bread and butter is the peripherals used when duking it out in an MMO. In our latest gamer hardware review, we take a look at the Roccat Isku FX Keyboard. See how it measures up before heading to the comments to add your thoughts.

The Isku FX comes complete with all the bells and whistles you’d expect of a modern “gaming” keyboard.  Lots of additional functionality and programmable hotkeys, backlighting that can be altered to suit your tastes, there’s thumb-keys that essentially act as “shift” keys and with the Roccat Easy-Shift[+] software this essentially adds a ton of macros to your keyboard that wouldn’t be possible without the easy-shift commands.  In fact, Roccat’s kind enough to actually package the thing with a few default commands for World of Warcraft and other games.  It’s not a mechanical keyboard, but the keys themselves are of solid design, there’s a great bit of space below the bottom row of keys and thumbster keys for your wrists to rest on making it a very ergonomic keyboard.

It looks clunky and doesn't do anything that my Logitech doesn't already do at a cheaper price.

Any keyboard that does not have mechanical keys  cannot be considered a serious option for gamers. 


Logitech and Razer are the massmarket McDonalds type keyboards that the blind and unknowing masses who do not have a clue on advanced keyboarding performance buy. They are, the Justin Biebers and Britney Spears of keyboards. 


Personally I'm a fan of the QPad MK-85 which i have with cherry-brown keys, the perfect combination of smoothness with a slight tactical feedback. But also decent are Deck, Ducky Shine, DAS Keyboards and Filco. 


But be warned. Try any of the above mentioned keyboards and you will never, ever be able to enjoy yourself with a regular keyboard again and you'll be like me smiling and softly shaking your head when someone tries to claim Logitech is the best keyboard, seeing in them the same lack of understanding the bigger world that teen girls have when they claim Justin Bieber is the best musician the world has ever seen. 


By the way for all you America lovers Logitech is a Swiss company. And they do make great mouses but their keyboards are junk. 


Finally, with all due respect to the reviewer, spending $99 on a keyboard that does not have mechanical keys is a horrible investment. The reviewer claims that he doesn't like the sound of mechanical keyboards but cherry brown MX keys don't make that much noise and even if a little noise is too much there are the Cherry -Red mechanical keys that don't make any sound at all. My previous keyboard was a Filco Majestouch 2 with cherry red MX-keys, for $30 more then this piece of crap keyboard you reviewed, you would have a keyboard that gives you an infinitely better tactile feedback on your keys while the wife can still sleep.

Not a mechanical keyboard. 

I use a razor nostromo for my gaming, so my requirement is to have a small footprint mechanical keyboard like cm storm quick fire pro. I love that setup.

I do have a 2nd PC that currently has a programmable Logitech keyboard so I am always on the lookout for a replacement.

This is not it, too expensive and not mechanical - lose lose scenario.

SteelSeries Merc Stealth here... love the arrow keys on the left and the extra keypad. It's bigger, but in this case... Bigger is Better ;)

Why the hell would anyone buy a non-mechanical keyboard? What a pointless review. If you don't like loud keyboard, then just get a mechanical keyboard with Cherry MX Black keys, they aren't very loud at all. All non-mechanical keyboards are an absolute waste of money.

If I didn't respond to you, chances are you're a idiot.

 I happen to have a mechanical keyboard, I just like the feedback from using it. Other than that I have absolutely no idea how my current keyboard is in any way superior to a non-mechanical keyboard? Can someone explain why this could possibly be the case? Can I click quicker, more accurately with a mechanical over a non? Is the amount of keystrokes processed so much higher with a mechanical that my Sc2 skills would become akin to a young koreans?


/shrug -  not sure,  I just like the feedback.

I absolutely despise my Logitech keyboard BUT I will vouch they have the best mice. After using my girlfriend's DAS Mechanical -- I fell in love (used to use an ABS M1 Mechanical until the W and D gave up.)

Another vote for the SteelSeries Merc Stealth. Once you get used to the left side keypad it is hard to go back. I can easily reach all my number keys with one hand. And the buttons are different hieghts, shapes and sizes making it easy to tell what key I'm hitting. And the dynamic remapping per game/macros/backlighting are done well.

Yes you can click faster and more accurately with a mechanical keyboard. The secret is in the tactile feedback you get, as a result you don't have to press the button all the way in, and you get a notification that you can go to the other key. For someone who types with 2 fingers that doesn't matter much but for a fast blind typer there is a real difference in keystrokes per minute with a mechanical keyboard. 

A good game oriented mechanical keyboard will also give some advantage, not huge but its there. A mechanical keyboard with cherry MX brown, red or black keys will give you just that much extra tactile feedback and speed that might mean the difffernce between your headshot and that of the other guy in an fps. That's why you will always see mechanical keyboards at game tournaments.

Will definately be purchasing this, have supported Roccat since I first heard about them much prefer to buy the quality Roccat products over paying for a brand name with Razer products.
