MadCatz announces the “S.T.R.I.K.E.7 PC Gaming Keyboard”
The S.T.R.I.K.E.7 has been designed to offer gamers unprecedented control over their gaming environment. through the detachable modular design, unique V.E.N.O.M. touch sensitive color LCD touchscreen and host of programmable features.
The fully modular design allows gamers to detach sections of the S.T.R.I.K.E.7 keyboard and arrange as they see fit, even allowing the gamer to only use the sections of the keyboard vital to their game of choice.
Designed for the professional or competitive gamer, the S.T.R.I.K.E.7 is ideal for LAN tournaments, allowing gamers to only transport the sections of the keyboard they require. Should the gamer only wish to take the main keyboard section, then they will still have access to the all important ‘cursor key functionality’, thanks to the Fn key, which when held, allows the ‘WASD’ keys (The keys most natural to hand to the majority of gamers) to function as the cursor keys.
Other important keys not found on the main section of the keyboard such as ‘Page Up/Down’ are also available through the use of the Fn key, where they can be accessed via the function keys of the main keyboard.
Should gamers have a dedicated computer desk featuring a separate keyboard tray situated underneath the desk, using the S.T.R.I.K.E.7 without the Number pad section attached could prove extremely useful.
On such a desk, there is often just enough room to fit a gaming mouse next to a keyboard but often the gamer is left with an extremely limited space with which to maneuver the mouse. With the S.T.R.I.K.E.7 configured without the Number pad module attached, gamers dramatically increase the available real estate with which to maneuver their mouse. When playing in such a configuration, the Number pad module can still be attached via the cables included but repositioned on the top layer of the desk, in front of the gamers monitor.
