If you are serious about gaming you need the Mad Catz S.T.R.I.K.E. 5. As a gamer this keyboard gives you the performance, flexibility and control you need. Layout, macros and colours can all be easily change but, although the modular design allows infinite customisation, it doesn't compromise on speed. This keyboard is seriously fast.

The Need For Speed

The Mad Catz S.T.R.I.K.E. 5 is responsive and quick, the specially engineered membrane easily supporting even the most frenzied gaming action. The keys are fast and designed to ease muscle fatigue. Optimised for around 60g of actuation force the keys will quickly reset making long gaming sessions easy to handle.
A delight to use the keyboard is tactile and well designed – adding an extra dimension to your gaming.

EYE EYE

The EYE OLED is a graphical display control module that allows the user to easily manage the built in functions of the S.T.R.I.K.E. 5. The EYE lets you program macros, adjust the fantastic backlighting, control media and even launch apps and websites. There are plenty of timing options including countdown timers and a stopwatch and the all the keyboards functions can be easily navigated through the EYE.

Build It Your Way

With 21 programmable macro buttons the Mad Catz S.T.R.I.K.E. 5 can be customised to your own needs and its modular design enables you to control the size and fit of the keyboard as well as the colours, sounds and programming.
The keyboard consists of seven modules including the main keyboard, EYE control module, macro key and number pad modules and three palm and wrists rests. All of which can be joined together with the provided cables or connector screws.

Macros

As mentioned above the Mad Catz S.T.R.I.K.E. 5 gaming keyboard has 21 programmable macro buttons which can be used over three different nodes. This gives a total of 63 user-definable commands.
The easy to use graphical interface makes programming your macros easy whether you are using single or complex multi-key actions.

Great Design And User Experience

16 million colour RGB backlighting represents an awesome gaming experience and can be completely customised to match your gaming environment. The palm and wrist rests take comfort to a whole new level and can be fitted to both the main keyboard and the NumPad.

"If you are serious about gaming you need the Mad Catz S.T.R.I.K.E. 5"

Just.... NO

I quite like Mad Catz (I use a RAT 7 mouse), but to sell a gaming keyboard without mechanical switches is madness. To PAY for one is just plain ridiculous.

There are a dozen mechanical keyboards in this price range which will be built to last and be far more comfortable to use.

Bit cheaper at pcupgrade.co.uk - £89.99 Inc VAT

You could get a Qpad MK-80 or a CM Storm Trigger for this money. Both built like tanks. Both still have the key features of some Makro keys and adjustable backlighting. They also use mechanical switches and don't look like an aborted Robocop.

You can even pick up something like THIS from Logitech

also got a RAT7 for my second rig, great great mouse, but my God you'd have to be born stupid to spend this much on a membrane board

wonder if anyone ever actually paid £150 for it ? oO


have a CM Storm Quickfire myself, and can confirm they are built like proverbial tanks
