ASUS has a new Moonlight white series for gamers that prefer less darker tones and towards the sleek white colours. here we have the ROG Strix Scope NX TKL Moonlight White.
ROG Strix Scope NX TKL Moonlight White is a tenkeyless keyboard for quick responsive gaming needs
It’s lightweight and cater to be carried around with the Xccurate Design to support mobile use.
Take note of the extra wide CTRL key which is really useful for FPS games.
Aura Sync LEDs are at located below to give that under-glow effect from the matte white keys. As usual we can customised any lightning effects with Aura software. But I would suggest keeping it white to follow the theme.
The Movement control keys have dual purpose and we can see the printed text on the front of it. Above the keys, we have the Print Screen, Screen Lock, and Pause .
The keyboard has a metal top plate that makes it feels durable and pretty solid. There’s only 84 keys to keep the keyboard tight and makes the frame slim enough but still good for gaming. It weights about 880g and the dimension is 356×136.2×39.7 mm.
We don’t need the numpad for most of the games theses days. The extra space saved on the right would be utilised better for mouse use depending on your style of grip.
Only thing I feel that was lacking is some wrist support as it’s pretty sharp at the edges.
ASUS ROG Mechanical keyboards are using the ROG NX switch type. This gives quick actuation and great feedback and tactile keystrokes.
The actuation point is 1.8mm for the red switch and brown switch is 2mm. There’s also a blue switch of 2.3mm actuation point. The feels of the keyboard and firmness does make an impact during gaming.
The keyboard spacing is slightly smaller than usual but after a few hours of gaming it feels natural and just needs time getting used to it. Maybe it could be better as it takes lesser time for my fingers to travel. The feedback is quick and bounciness has a nice feel.
ROG Armoury Crate software can be use to assigned a custom purpose to any key and also using the same software we can do macros with additional to mouse clicks.
There are so many varies RGB patterns and effects to choose from.
The ROG Strix Scope NX TKL Moonlight White is a tenkeyless mechanical gaming keyboard that uses ROG NX switches and solid frame in a small package. The white tones plus RGB led makes it a great looking keyboard with gaming purpose. It retails in Singapore for $259
