Mad Catz S.T.R.I.K.E. 7 Gaming Keyboard

 

If the Das Keyboard is the Cadillac of keyboards (and it is), the MadCatz S.T.R.I.K.E. 7 is the Batmobile of keyboards. I've never seen so complicated or full-featured a gaming keyboard before, and at $299.99 (list) it better be. This has everything...

Super-customizable. Tons of features. Touch screen is handy

Extremely expensive. Doesn't use mechanical keyswitches. Complicated to hook up

The MadCatz S.T.R.I.K.E. 7 is an impressive, feature-filled gaming keyboard, but it's extremely expensive and doesn't use mechanical switches (though its membrane switches are very responsive).

GOLD AWARD!

Great KB, Drivers are not...

 

Besides the work around with the drivers and the board not liking to boot on a x58 platform it's a great keyboard. I was looking at the G19 for some time but I like the over all look and the customization on this guy a lot more. Sure it's a bit high on...

Very nice keyboard, I love the look and it's very comfortable on my wrists. I have a RAT 9 mouse and I figured what the hell why not get something that matches a little bit. I love the customization with the keyboard as well as the lcd screen. Recently...

Really the biggest problem I have with the board is getting it set up. I tried for some time to just load the driver for the board. I only could get to the splash screen that said connect the usb and then nothing, the next button would not work. I was...

Works good for me

 

For the comfort that the keyboard give you I would but another one but for the price of the other functionality its not worth it.

I know that everyone hates that it does not have mechanical keys but personally I hate how loud the mechanical keys are and this keyboard gives you the safe feel as mechanical keys but without the mechanical part and noise. I like that I can pin any...

The keyboard often forgets your macro settings for the dam thing! I only use macro keys while playing mmos and this is not an mmo keyboard at all

Nice Keyboard, Bad Power Supply, No tech support

 

Hardware monitoring screen would be nice, a variety of screens other than the few you have. You can make any picture into and icon for our macro's.

Got keyboard, put it together, hooked it up, everything worked but could not update the bios.(yeah it has one). Nice alum. back keep it all in place nice braided cables. Display is bright and responsive to the touch

Came home one day about a week later, no lights on keyboard and USB bus on back does not work. Called them, got a person who said ship it to us and we will repair/replace it. He didn't want to trouble shoot, when I asked his assistance to troubleshoot...
