Mad Catz Unveils S.T.R.I.K.E. Modular Gaming Keyboard

As any PC builder can attest to, modular products are great. But what about Just a few weeks ago, Razer unveiled its Ouroboros gaming mouse complete with modular ergonomic components to match multiple grip styles for both hands. As some of you noticed, the Ouroboros was somewhat similar in design to the Mad Catz R.A.T.

Now, the maker of the R.A.T. is bringing another modular peripheral to the fray, the S.T.R.I.K.E. 7. Drawing inspiration from its mouse counterpart, the keyboard features a durable metal body with mechanical keys and five modular components including: a V.E.N.O.M. TFT-LC touchscreen with TeamSpeak integration, four programmable buttons on a function strip, number keypad and a complex combination of wrist and palm rests.

As great as all of these customizable features may be, they come at quite a hefty cost. Touting a $300 price tag, the S.T.R.I.K.E. 7 may be one of the most expensive mechanical keyboards on the market. But if you've got the cash to spare and you're an addict to customization, you can purchase the keyboard directly from the Mad Catz Gameshark store

    Its true that its ugly, but I'm so happy that more and more companies are jumping on the mechanical keyboard wagon. I wish rubber domes were never invented

    mad catz -thinks back to ps2 peripheral days- ew...

    though it looks a bit too extreme, I can see how convenient it can be. the rests being movable and modable is a big plus for me. and if the mechanical keys feel as good and responsive as they should, then its also a plus. unfortunately, all my experience with mad catz is from 6-7 years ago when I threw a mad catz ps2 controller out the window...

    Actually this doesn't have mechanical keys. If Tom's would get people who could read right they would have noticed this " Replete with a specially engineered membrane which mimics the tactile feel generated by the mechanical keys" on the product's official site.

    300$ for a keyboard is "I have so much money that i'm going to buy an extremely expensive keyboard because i can" kind of purchase.

Take example the R.A.T mices, they are heavy, made of slippery material and generally you cant make them fit your hand no matter how you adjust it.
