When a fraction of a second is all that divides victory from defeat, you must be in absolute harmony with your gaming environment. Every command and key location must be committed to muscle memory as there's no time to look away from the screen. Introducing the S.T.R.I.K.E. 5 from Mad Catz, the perfect keyboard with which to construct your ideal gaming setup. Whether your game of choice is an RPG, FPS, MMO, RTS, MOBA or any other genre, you can now customize your keyboard's physical arrangement to meet your needs
Borrowing modifiable technology from the world's most adjustable mouse - - the award-winning R.A.T. - - the S.T.R.I.K.E. 5 Gaming Keyboard's unique design provides unprecedented customization options to enhance overall comfort. Armed with total control of your keyboard's fit, size, color, sound, and programming, you can finally play your favorite games exactly as intended: How you like to play them!
1. Control Module with E.Y.E. OLED Display
Easily navigate the keyboard's many functions with the Control Module's intuitive E.Y.E. panel. Program advanced macros, adjust backlighting, monitor respawn timers, control your media, and even take in-game control of external functions - - balance game and microphone volumes, launch apps and websites - - all with a few simple finger taps.
2. Main Keyboard
The key bed utilizes a specially engineered membrane which mimics the tactile feel generated by the mechanical keys often preferred by gamers - - without the resultant excessive noise. The speedy, double-tap friendly keys respond to an optimized 60g of actuation force and reset at the perfect level, all of which helps reduce muscle fatigue during marathon gaming sessions.
Thanks to a much smaller footprint than run-of-the-mill keyboards, the main keyboard gives your mouse plenty of extra space for large, sweeping movements. Full RGB backlighting - - with 16 million color variants - - matches the keyboard to your gaming rig and the keys' laser-etched, lacquered light guides are ideal for gaming in dim environments.
3. Function Strip
Adding four programmable macro buttons to the mix, the removable Function Strip brings the total to 21. Including the E.Y.E. panel, the S.T.R.I.K.E. 5 Gaming Keyboard incorporates 21 programmable macro buttons over three modes to create 63 user-definable commands.
Just like the Control Module, the NumPad is capable of loose or fix-mounted positioning. The custom connection scheme makes it all possible, and the included set of longer wires bolsters your arrangement options.
5. 3-Part Active Palm Rest and Two Wrist Rests
A height-adjustable, active palm-rest houses both a thumb wheel and an action button for even more controls at your fingertips. Both wrist rests utilize a rugged 5-pin connector to attach to the main keyboard module and NumPad, effectively enhancing your comfort during stints of extended gaming.
An intuitive graphical interface vastly simplifies the formerly tedious task of macro programming. Assign single or multiple keystrokes, complete with custom timings, to macro keys and then easily fine-tune your settings. This ability is essential for fast-paced games which require clear but complex multi-key actions.
Each of the keyboard's three different modes can store your programmed macros, tripling mid-game access to available commands. Once programmed, custom profiles can be published to share with your community and saved for later recall, allowing for a seamless transition to another gaming PC.
