ROG Strix Scope TKL Review Rundown
The Strix Scope TKL cuts the standard 104-key layout down to a more manageable 84 keys. The keyboard doesn't have any shortcut keys, but it feels like it does. Two-thirds of the function row defaults to media controls and a "ghost" key, rather than F5 through F12. It's available in various Cherry MX switches, including Red, Blue, Speed Silver, and Red.
This rundown provides our analysis on 8 third-party reviews. The sentiment scores, summaries, and key takeaways that we select are based on these reviews and may differ from the original publication.

For $109, the ROG Strix Scope TKL Electro Punk provides a compelling hot pink and black design. Most of the keyboard is black, aside from the hot pink keys trailing around the left side and across the bottom of the deck. The keys are surprisingly clicky and not as noisy as other mechanical keyboards.

The Electro Punk model comes with Cherry MX Reds, but the standard model is also available with Brown MX switches.
Reviewers from Rtings have found the following[***]:
ASUS ROG Strix Scope TKL is an excellent mechanical gaming keyboard. It's a TenKeyLess keyboard without a numpad, and it's available in various Cherry MX switches. It has full RGB backlighting with individually-lit keys, as well as LEDs at the bottom of the keyboard to create an underglow effect. Unfortunately, its latency is a bit high for a wired keyboard and isn't ideal for competitive gamers.

The Asus ROG Strix Scope TKL Electro Punk is a tenkeyless keyboard with a plastic base, aluminum top plate with a brushed finish. It also features per-key RGB backlighting that's set to a “breathing” pink by default. The keyboard connects to your gaming PC via a braided USB-C to USB 2.0 cable that's detachable for safe transport.

Asus Strix Scope TKL Deluxe is a tenkeyless mechanical keyboard. Priced at £149.99, it's certainly at the upper-end of the gaming keyboard market. Features Cherry MX switches, anti-ghosting and full NKRO and Stealth modes.
