Roccat Isku FX Keyboard Review
Introduction and Technical Specifications

Roccat products usually leave their research and development department in good shape. The Kone mouse has gone through a few iterations, but none of them greatly change the original design. The Isku keyboard we first looked at back in Christmas 2011, and in keeping with the Roccat ethos of evolution rather than revolution, the Isku FX is very much a refinement of the original product.
What we have here is a keyboard that straddles the line between a basic laptop style keyboard, and the many fully customisable mechanical models that have appeared in recent times.
With fully customisable lighting, media keys, macro keys and a good software base, does the Isku FX provide enough new features to keep it high on the shortlist of the keyboards?
One thing the Isku FX isn't is petite. 50cm wide and 24cm deep certainly places it at the large end of the spectrum. With multiple profiles and a host of programmable keys there should be enough customisation options to satisfy even the most demanding user.
