What can I do with the Roccat Isku?
Play your way - whether you want to keep your spells and shortcuts at your fingertips, chill playing some videos or play a fast-paced adventure and team the keyboard with a Roccat mouse - this keyboard has all the buttons you could need. You get an optimum keystroke response with 123 medium-height keys and a 1ms response rate with a reliable wired connection, which means you can act as soon as you’ve pressed the button. Anti-ghosting means you’ll never miss a keystroke again. The keyboard has three programmable key zones in the optimum positions to reach and an extra-large wrist rest with movement-improving surface texture. All this, plus the bold design, means this is a great gaming keyboard for hours of playing.

What other features does the Isku have?
Always hit the key you intended to with the ice blue backlighting keeping the keyboard clear. Set the illumination level to one of six brightness levels to keep it comfortable and visible in any ambient light. With eight media keys, you can control your media at a tap. Configure the keys to have quick access to more than 25 functions. Isku also has three buttons under the spacebar, so you’ll have no more idle thumbs as you fully get into the action.

Can I customise any of the keys?
Customise your keyboard so that it complements your gaming style perfectly with three programmable thumbster keys, five programmable macros and 20 other programmable keys. Quickly switch between a primary setting and secondary function with the Easy-shift[+] button, which instantly doubles your available functions. Use live recording to save your macros to your keyboard with one touch of a button, then store up to 180+ macros in five game profiles. Know exactly what profile you’re in at any given moment with the five indicator lights.

What is this keyboard compatible with?
The Isku is compatible with Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8 and 10. The keyboard is compatible with the Roccat driver so you can store and switch between five profiles and over 180+ macros. Roccat talk 2.0 allows you to combine forces with your Roccat mouse allowing the Easy-Shift[+] to change your programmable functions on your keyboard and mouse at the same time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great design and feel if like me you don't want to splash out big money on overpriced brands like razor, this keyboard is perfect for you. the lights are bright and easy to see even in a fully lit room and the built-in wrist rest makes using this keyboard a very comfortable experience.

Hi, What colours are the backlighting?

Asked by: Tomrex4
Taken directly from Roccats website; Thanks to its off-white UV-coated keys and its extreme ice blue backlighting in 6 adjustable brightness levels, the Isku makes it easy to always hit the right key, even in low lighting. The Isku’s optimized illumination also means it’s perfect for avoiding eye strain during those long gaming sessions.

Is this a mechanical keyboard, and if so what switches does it use?

Asked by: JoshThorpe
This is a high quality keyboard but it is not full mechanical, a reviewer from said "What did (pleasantly) surprise me was the feel and responsiveness of the Isku’s keys. The Isku may be the closest in feel to a mechanical keyboard that I’ve encountered in a non-mechanical keyboard, even though it’s using common rubber dome ‘switches’ beneath its keys. The Isku keys are firm, crisp, and feel almost as good as a mechanical keyboard with Cherry MX Brown or Cherry MX Red switches"
