Roccat Isku Gaming Keyboard

Keyboards, Peripherals

Roccat IskuIntroduction

We’ve done a lot of peripheral reviews here at XSR, with most recent keyboards being made up with mechanical switches. These were hailed as being the ideal for gamers, but not every manufacturer agrees.

Roccat have sent us their latest keyboard design, the ISKU. It’s a traditionally rubbed dome switch board with backlighting, macro buttons, some thumb keys and Roccat’s famed Easyshift technology. Priced up there with the best of them, does it stand up to some of the great mechanical boards we’ve reviewed recently?

Let’s find out.


  • Blue Key Illumination
  • 3 Unique Easy-Shift(+) Zones
  • 36 Easy-to-Reach Macro Keys
  • Macro Live! Recording
  • 8 Configurable Media & Hotkeys
  • Medium-Height Keys

Full features available here.

    Would you pick this one instead of Ozone Strike?
    I know one is mechanical and the other isn’t but also one has a hand full of functionalities and the other don’t.
    I’m between these 2 because are the only with PT layout.

      I’d pick the Steelseries 7g really, but between those two, probably the Strike. I just love mechanical.
