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).

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


Today we will be taking Mad Catz new gaming keyboard, the S.T.R.I.K.E. 7 through its paces. The S.T.R.I.K.E. 7, like previous products from Mad Catz, such as the R.A.T. mice is a heavily customisable product that incorporates a touch screen display...

The S.T.R.I.K.E. 7 is a highly customisable keyboard offering outstand build quality and touch screen technology. While the price is at the high end of the market for keyboards the product delivers quality and performance to match.

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

MadCatz STRIKE 7


The Mad Catz S.T.R.I.K.E. 7 is a modular gaming keyboard like no other. Find out in our full review how it stacks up to other keyboards.

The modular design gives you complete customization control

This keyboard lacks mechanical switches

A solid feature set and powerful customization options really help the Mad Catz STRIKE 7 stand out.

So what do you get beyond the keyboard itself? A whole lot actually, first of you get an amazing touch screen with numerous apps! If that isn’t enough you get over 20 macro keys, adjustable palm rests, full RGB coloured backlighting, two high speed USB...

... waste of time and money, going back to logitech...

It's a keyboard, and it types

Whew where to start ; 1 - Does not work outside of windows, so u cant even go to BIOS ; 2 - Maybe its because i use Vista, but I shouldn't care this is supposed to work with vista. Problem is that the software that controls the keyboard, will not allow...

Never buying Madcatz again


It has already had the same problem twice. The first one i got started randomly rebooting. Had to pay about 30 bucks shipping to get it replaced. What company these days doesnt pay for shipping when you get a defective product right out of the box....

LCD screen, precise keysstrokes, tough construction material

If its not working out of the box Madcatz doesnt offer shipping to get it replaced. The program that comes with it is very basic and barely functions. Some of the apps for example the controlling the media player stop working randomly and you have to...

Behind the Curve


Versatility, form, function, customizable, appearance, style, etc... Wow, I am impressed with what was done with just a keyboard

Lets get with the times Mad Catz.... Windows 7 is over lets work on getting all the kinks out of working with Windows 8 and higher

This kitty doesn't play with Windows 8 at all


I am keeping the keyboard hoping that at some point Mad Catz will fix the software. In the meantime it is just a nicely lit, good response gaming keyboard....but without the functionality of the POD it is no better than a $20 keyboard.

Awesome looking keyboard that offers every little thing you could hope for

Keyboard is awesome in every way except one.... Will not load any of the software in Windows 8 Platform. All of the macros and settings are created on your computer and then migrated to the Pod, but since Windows 8 won't load the software you are...

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...
