The Asus ROG Strix Scope RX is one of the latest opto-mechanical keyboards. It uses lasers to deliver increased speed – and the Scope uses Asus' debut optical switch. The keyboard costs £125 in the UK and $129 in the US. The relatively low price does mean the Asus is missing numerous common features.
