Strix Scope II 96 Wireless comes with hot-swappable coated ROG NX Snow & Storm mechanical switches and a unique design with silicone cushioning foam that has built-in cushioning pads for the switches, providing a great typing experience.

As such, it earned the AXetraordinary as well as the Advanced Design award.

This is one of the best wireless gaming mechanical keyboards that I've tried with a numpad.

So Asus just made their BEST Wireless gaming keyboard, but is it really that good? They sent me one to test. Here are the results.

I've found the perfect keyboard for me!

Anyway, I'm really excited about it, I think it looks super sleek.

While we were at Computex 2023, we managed to drop by Asus' booth for the Asus ROG Strix Scope II 96 Wireless keyboard; yes, it's a mouthful. Nonetheless, we tried out the keyboard briefly at the trade show, and we're quite impressed with the overall refinement of the Strix Scope II.

My setup is all ASUS ROG and includes a build enclosed in the ROG Hyperion GR701 case, the ROG Strix Scope II 96 Wireless keyboard, the fantastic ROG Moonstone Ace L glass mat, the lightweight ROG Harpe Ace Aim Lab Edition mouse, the ROG Falchion ace mini keyboard and the Rog Gladius III mouse.

This keyboard is created for gamers who value their efficiency and accuracy in gaming sessions, as well as for professionals who require the highest level of performance and comfort while working on a PC.

The keyboard is very cool. First of all, I liked the typing - thanks to the two sound-absorbing layers and the candles themselves - they are lubricated, the stabilizers are lubricated. Everything here is done as it should be - well done, ASUS!

We can unreservedly recommend the ASUS ROG Strix Scope II 96 Wireless to anyone looking for a premium all-in-one keyboard for a variety of purposes, but not willing to overpay for it

ROG Strix Scope II 96 Wireless

What actually excels the most in our opinion is the comfort of long-term work and the quiet mechanical switches with a great feel. That's why we recommend her!

So to sum it up - this is the so-called 96% format, squeezed into 80% of keyboards, so it's only a little wider than the TKL model, and at the same time it has a full numeric part. It brings probably the best gaming switches on the market, factory lubricated with a complete sound dampening system.

Recently, I had the opportunity to test two keyboards that started that price segment of around 100 euros, the Redragon and Fantech models, this keyboard seems miles away in terms of quality.

    ROG NX Snow mechanical switches utilize composite POM material for the stem with PC top housing and POM bottom housing to provide ultra smooth keystrokes, and the walled stem design enhances stability and prevents dust intrusion. Special tuning is also done, coupled with factory pre-lubing, to give the ROG NX Snow keystroke a very solid and clean sound, with “thocky” acoustics.
