The Asus ROG Strix Scope II 96 Wireless keyboard features a construction that consists of a plastic chassis and a metal top plate and weighs give or take a notch more than 1kg with minimal deck flex, indicating a focus on sturdiness and practicality.


The keyboard is wireless and compatible with a 2.4 GHz USB adapter and Bluetooth. Of course, you can also use it wired through USB. So should your battery be depleted, you can always use the keyboard. It provides dedicated icons on the keycaps for Windows Game Bar recording controls, a multi-purpose button, and a roller for media and lighting adjustments. It also has a USB-C port for wired connectivity and charging, with a switch to select the connection type. The receiver is integrated into the keyboard, catering to portability. Included are a wrist rest, keyboard, keycap puller and replacabe  space key. Oh and of course a w.4 Ghz USB controller.


The magnetic wrist rest accompanies the keyboard for ergonomic support. Media controls, like a designated key and wheel, are integrated for user convenience. The settings can be customized via software. In terms of packaging, the keyboard is housed in a ROG-branded fabric bag. The wrist rest is contained in a plastic bag, though Asus does not specify any particular environmental considerations for the materials used.

The keyboard employs a 96% layout. This design merges the navigation cluster with the function row. It also brings the number pad and arrow keys nearer to the primary alphanumeric section. This layout has been noticed by those interested in keyboards over the years.



The design of the Strix Scope II 96 Wireless adheres to the typical ROG appearance, with noticeable keycap typography. The keycaps are crafted from textured PBT material, akin to the material used in the Azoth keyboard. PBT is valued for its longevity and its ability to withstand wear associated with extended use, making it an alternative to the frequently employed ABS plastic in many keyboards.
