A marriage between mass appeal features (RGB and LED display) and modder basics (hot swappable switches) the Rog Strix Flare II Animate does a good job of satisfying both crowds.

Review ROG Strix Flare II Animate moving lights! Custom can remove the switch! Gaming Keyboard of the Year 2022

Review Gaming Keyboard with ROG NX

In gaming it is obviously very good, the switches are very good and perfect for this area. Normally I prefer smaller keyboards because I need a lot of space on my workstation but I really liked its design and ergonomics. Spectacular switches, the animated animation is very nice and makes a nice impression on the keyboard. For writing spectacular. The price is not exaggerated for all the functions it offers.

These keys with a response time of 0.125 MS can be one of the sought-after features in competitive arenas. The sense of quality in our user experience was also at a high level. The responsiveness of the keyboard was really good, thanks to the wrist support, it minimizes the pressure on your wrist in long-term use.

The surprise is the ROG Delta S Core, probably the best microphone I've experienced with Asus. I'm also excited about the ROG Strix Flare II Animate keyboard, I'll definitely be back to that one.

因此,ROG Strix Flare II Animate的軸體應該算是「自由軸」才對,那麼解決了軸體問題,滾輪式與撥動式的多媒體控制介面,直觀且容易使用,也不存在占用鍵位的問題,AniMe Matrix LED顯示器的加入更是神來一筆,更加活潑的視覺效果,在RGB燈效中殺出重圍,讓ROG Strix Flare II Animate有了那麼一點高科技反烏托邦產物的感覺,打字舒適度問題?剛剛說了「自由軸」讓這個問題不存在了,什麼,你說手腕靠部的舒適度問題,ROG Strix Flare II Animate有腕托,所以解決了,想快速連結手機硬碟,機體前端也有USB 2.0埠,所以ROG Strix Flare II Animate當作本年度的開春之作根本是當之無愧。
