Mad Catz S.T.R.I.K.E. 7 Gaming Keyboard for PC

When a fraction of a second is all that divides victory from defeat, you must be in absolute harmony with your gaming setup. Every command and key location must be committed to muscle memory as there's no time to look away from the screen. Enter the S.T.R.I.K.E. 7 from Mad Catz, the perfect keyboard with which to construct your ideal gaming environment. Whether your game of choice is an R.P.G., F.P.S., M.M.O., R.T.S., M.O.B.A. or any other genre, you can now customize your keyboard's physical arrangement to meet your needs.

Boasting a robust, full metal chassis which is much stronger than most gaming keyboards, the modular design gives you the freedom to interlock only the components which matter most to you and your gaming style. Replete with a specially engineered membrane which mimics the tactile feel generated by the mechanical keys often preferred by gamers--without the resultant excessive noise--the S.T.R.I.K.E. 7 Gaming Keyboard provides a distinct competitive edge.

Fully Modular for Unrivaled Customization

Borrowing modifiable technology from the world's most adjustable mouse — the award-winning R.A.T. — the S.T.R.I.K.E. 7 Gaming Keyboard's unique design provides unprecedented customization options to enhance overall comfort. Armed with total control of your keyboard's fit, size, color, sound, and programming, you can finally play your favorite games exactly as intended: How you like to play them!

Fully Modular for Unparalleled Customization

Borrowing modifiable technology from the world's most adjustable mouse--the award-winning R.A.T.--the S.T.R.I.K.E. 7 Gaming Keyboard's unique design provides unprecedented customization options to enhance overall comfort.

5 Separate Hardware Modules

Mad Catz S.T.R.I.K.E. 7 Gaming Keyboard for PC - Programmable V.E.N.O.M. TFT-LCD Touchscreen Mad Catz S.T.R.I.K.E. 7 Gaming Keyboard for PC - Optimized Main Keyboard Mad Catz S.T.R.I.K.E. 7 Gaming Keyboard for PC - Function Strip and Modular NumPad

1. Control Module with V.E.N.O.M. TFT-LCD Display

Easily navigate the keyboard's many functions with the Control Module's intuitive V.E.N.O.M. touchscreen. Program advanced macros, adjust backlighting, and take in-game control of external functions--balance game and chat volumes, launch apps and websites, even initiate and control TeamSpeak--all with a few simple finger taps.

2. Main Keyboard – Optimized for Responsiveness

Thanks to a much smaller footprint than run-of-the-mill keyboards, the main keyboard gives your mouse plenty of extra space for large, sweeping movements. Replacement, interchangeable WASD and cursor keys adapt to your gaming style by giving you the choice of standard, contoured or rubber-edged versions. Full RGB backlighting--with 16 million color variants--matches the keyboard to your gaming rig and the keys' laser-etched, lacquered light guides are ideal for gaming in dim environments.

3. Function Strip with Programmable Action Buttons

Adding four programmable macro buttons to the mix, the removable Function Strip brings the total to 24. Including the V.E.N.O.M. touchscreen, the S.T.R.I.K.E. 7 Gaming Keyboard incorporates 24 programmable macro buttons over three modes to create 72 user-definable commands.

4. Modular NumPad

Just like the Control Module, the NumPad is capable of loose or fix-mounted positioning. The custom connection scheme makes it all possible, and the included set of longer wires bolsters your arrangement options.

5. 3-Part Active Palm Rest and Two Wrist Rests

A height-adjustable, active palm-rest houses both a thumb wheel and an action button for even more controls at your fingertips. Both wrist rests utilize a rugged 5-pin connector to attach to the main keyboard module and NumPad, effectively enhancing your comfort during stints of extended gaming.


Mad Catz S.T.R.I.K.E. 7 Gaming Keyboard - Uncomplicated Macro Programming

Uncomplicated Macro Programming

An intuitive graphical interface vastly simplifies the formerly tedious task of macro programming. Assign single or multiple keystrokes, complete with custom timings, to macro keys or interface icons and then easily fine-tune your settings. This ability is essential for fast-paced games which require clear but complex multi-key actions.

Each of the keyboard's three different modes can store your programmed macros; you need only switch to a different mode mid-game to triple your available commands. Once programmed, custom profiles can be published to share with your community and saved for later recall, allowing for a seamless transition to another gaming PC.


Mad Catz S.T.R.I.K.E. 7 Gaming Keyboard - Integrated TeamSpeak Functionality

Integrated TeamSpeak Functionality with Visual Identifier

The team at Mad Catz collaborated with TeamSpeak's development team to integrate their state-of-the-art chat technology into the S.T.R.I.K.E. 7 Gaming Keyboard. Once you have the TeamSpeak application running on the keyboard's V.E.N.O.M. touchscreen, select specific game rooms to check who is online and who is actively talking. You can even control the chat volume from within the game you are playing, removing the need to pause and switch programs.

1 out of 5 eggs****Terrible******

Pros: um looks cool.

Cons: doesnt work, waste of money, made very cheap.

Other Thoughts: Bought 2 at the same time 1 just stopped working after a month, powers on powers off randomly wont type. Then second I attempted to plug it in after moving my pc desk and the prong on the plug just fell off in my hand. There are many many keyboards out there that are much better options, logitech Gseries, Razer keyboards, a cheap 5.99 keyboard, all are much better options then this one. If you have problems with the keyboard expect to pay to send it in for warranty work. As they do not cover shipping it to them and then you will be without a keyboard for a couple weeks which isnt an issue bcuz instead of going through this hassle just buy 2 other brand keyboards and still save on the price of this waste of space.

1 out of 5 eggsGreat idea terrible support

Pros: The keyboard has some unique features and the customization is nice.

Cons: the LCD screen is wasted without any added aps that were promised. After purchasing the keyboard I was using it on my laptop and the keyboard would suffer random reboots. After trying it out on my home pc I was having the same issues. I sent several emails to support and received nothing in return. The keyboard is unreliable in any gaming situation due to the loss of control when the board is rebooting. I would not recommend this keyboard to anyone unless they want an expensive paper weight.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks good for me

Pros: I know that everyone hates that it does not have mechanical keys but personally I hate how loud the mechanical keys are and this keyboard gives you the safe feel as mechanical keys but without the mechanical part and noise. I like that I can pin any program that I want to the touch screen. I wrote a batch program for my computer that will shutdown the computer in 40 mins or so.

Cons: The keyboard often forgets your macro settings for the dam thing! I only use macro keys while playing mmos and this is not an mmo keyboard at all.

Other Thoughts: For the comfort that the keyboard give you I would but another one but for the price of the other functionality its not worth it.

1 out of 5 eggsNice Keyboard, Bad Power Supply, No tech support

Pros: Got keyboard, put it together, hooked it up, everything worked but could not update the bios.(yeah it has one). Nice alum. back keep it all in place nice braided cables. Display is bright and responsive to the touch.

Cons: Came home one day about a week later, no lights on keyboard and USB bus on back does not work. Called them, got a person who said ship it to us and we will repair/replace it. He didn't want to trouble shoot, when I asked his assistance to troubleshoot he told me to install it on a different computer. I know electrical and PC so I tested the Power supply and 0 Volt. Went down to Radio shack got a new power supply and everything works again including updating the bios. They had me open a case online and the website acknowledged it. Nothing since.

Other Thoughts: Hardware monitoring screen would be nice, a variety of screens other than the few you have. You can make any picture into and icon for our macro's.

4 out of 5 eggsFun keyboard!

Pros: How cool is having a screen for your keyboard? Very cool. This is a quality built piece of kit, the metal frame keeps the keyboard from twisting or warping(not that you should be using force) The hardware goes together easily and has good form/function throughout. My reason for purchasing this keyboard was not actually just the screen but the size. I have a rather small desk that is full of monitors so I can't use some of the goliath keyboards out there. I installed the screen on the main keyboard and replaced my belkin game pad with the numpad/arrow key section. I installed the macro buttons on that as well. I now have a short keyboard for most use and just plug in the numpad side when I play certain games.

Cons: This may have been a one off but my cap lock key occasionally sticks, I can honestly say no food or drink has touched this keyboard within the two weeks I have used it but as I don't use this key often it doesn't bother me.

Other Thoughts: I would buy again because this fits my needs and looks great doing it!

1 out of 5 eggsworst keyboard i have ever owned

Pros: no pros

Cons: worst keyboard ever 1 month after purchase i removed the number pad part to put it on the other side of the keyboard but when i tried to plug it back in it broke the whole keyboard and the keyboard wont work until i unplug every thing and then plug it back in without the number pad. also the touch screen is useless and moving the cables at all disconnects the keyboard.

Other Thoughts: no where near worth the money, its a $300 keyboard and i wouldnt even pay for it if it was $50 DO NOT BUY

1 out of 5 eggsMad Catz S.T.R.I.K.E. 7

Pros: I do not own this keyboard because I read all the reviews posted on it. Thank you every one for your post they really help me to decided not to get this keyboard.

Cons: The main reason I am not getting this keyboard, is all the problems I have read the keyboard has and maybe somewhat the current price that it is.

Other Thoughts: I play games with a lot of people from online gaming and land parties. And when they hear or see what I am using, they for some reason have to go out and buy the same thing I have. After ready all the post on the striker 7. I decided to buy the Logitech G19 and I must say I love it. Soon after I got the G19 just about all my land party buddies went out I bought the G19 and even a few of my online friends.
So I guess what I am getting at is if I got this keyboard and it did or does not work properly. My friends would lose trust in my opinion on Computer parts and accessories, making me look like a idiot and I don't want that to happen.

5 out of 5 eggsPure awesomeness

Pros: Everything man
Full backlighting
Most comfortable keyboard I have ever used
Awesome touch screen makes you feel like some sort of starship captain
All around good hardware.
You can piece the keyboard basically anyway you want it
If you have a sweet rig, this will polish the finishing touches to it.

Cons: Non functionality wise

You pay for the looks. Plain and simple.

Other Thoughts: It doesn't make food....

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing!!

Pros: Fully customizable to any liking (ex. can use as a macro gaming pad if i want among many things), functions great as a desktop keyboard or i can even plug&play it on other computers as long as i have the additional power socket available. Since the main bulk of the keyboard is in the software stored on/in the monitor your settings go where you go. also on MadCatz website they have some pre-build profiles for macro's on some games and using google you can find many many more making life good (I usually dont want to manually program practically 500 macros commands for 1 game =P )

Cons: Now yes its not worth its near $300 pricetag, however, you must keep in mind that this is a keyboard ment for show, appeal; with the addition of gaming enhancements.(just as an example) think of it as buying a high end Audi instead of a high end and way less pricy Honda. Both similar specs, comfort, everything, etc.) Its the "NAMEBRAND" you pay a chunk more for but if you are one of the people whos willing to do that then by all means, this is a great keyboard!

Other Thoughts: I LOVE this keyboard and combined with my R.A.T. 7 Gaming mouse (also by MadCatz) its just.. perfect harmony. feel free to skype me at shayes888 and i can show and/or describe to you the full layout from how its delivered to the endless possibilities. :) I was hesitant about buying it originally but I figure if I can help someone who is "on the fence" of buyng it, id be more than happy to help! I'd give it a 94/100 score all said and done
