Total gaming domination. It’s easy with the right tools. Combining the world’s smartest gaming engineering with jaw-dropping design, the ROCCAT Isku Illuminated Gaming Keyboard hands you the power to own any game the easy way -- and be legend.

For the first time in gaming history your keyboard and mouse can team up to become an unstoppable fighting force – giving you the revolutionary power to command faster, easier and more effectively than ever before. That’s because ROCCAT’s exclusive ROCCAT Talk protocol allows the Isku Illuminated Gaming Keyboard and the ROCCAT Kone[+] high-performance gaming mouse to talk to each other – giving you a powerful set bonus that lets you execute mouse macros quickly and easily right from your keyboard. This groundbreaking technology works like a dream together with the exclusive Easy-Shift[+] technology. Simply use the Easy-Shift[+] key on your Isku to activate macros for both your keyboard and mouse -- an ingenious short-cut that lets you concentrate more on your game and less on controls. Your Kone[+] will even signal you with a light flash every time it’s chatting with the Isku – so you’ll know when the two are working together.

ROCCAT Talk also lets you take advantage of the exclusive Easy-Aim technology like never before. When your game demands precise marksmanship in sniper mode, simply press and hold a single keyboard key and Easy-Aim will instantly optimize the DPI setting on your Kone[+]. This two-handed custom marksmanship is the simplest and most convenient way ever to achieve pinpoint sniping accuracy. And it also frees up a Kone[+] button for another macro of your choice. Imagine the world’s best gaming mouse and the new king of gaming keyboards operating in perfect harmony – and doing your bidding on the battlefield. That’s what we call legendary gaming.

  • newegg BE THE MASTER OF DARKNESS Backlit with ROCCAT Extreme Ice Blue Lighting in 6 adjustable brightness levels, the Isku makes it easy to always hit the right key -- even in low lighting. The Isku’s optimized illumination also means it’s perfect for avoiding eye strain during those long gaming sessions. Plus, you can program the Isku to automatically switch its lights off if you haven’t hit a key for a length of time of your choosing – great for when you want to take a break from your game.
  • newegg HUNT YOUR PREY INSTEAD OF HUNTING FOR KEYS The Isku is the only keyboard in the world to feature the groundbreaking Easy-Shift[+] technology, which offers you the wonder of 36 easily-customizable and macros strategically positioned in 3 spots in the easy-to-find WASD zone. This means you can fire off orders without ever having to re-adjust your hand position – so you won’t have to take your eyes off the screen to look for keys. Simple and ingenious. And because the Easy-Shift[+] key works just like the standard shift key, activating your macros is as simple as typing an uppercase letter.
  • newegg THREE UNIQUE EASY-SHIFT[+] ZONES The Easy-Shift[+] zone gives you an impressive 28 macros keys – including 8 dedicated keys that can be doubly programmed (M1-M5 five keys are on the left side, T1-T3 three keys are located under the spacebar). Plus, the ability to instantly switch between 5 profiles lets you enjoy up to a whopping 180 macros – enough customization to meet even the most demanding warrior’s needs.
  • newegg RECORD MACROS MID-ACTION New enhanced Macro Live! technology makes in-game macro recording a joy. Simply hit the dedicated Macro Live! Recording button and let the handy new Sound Feedback tool talk you through the quick and easy recording process, step by step. You can program up to an amazing 500 actions for each of the 180 macros – giving you the freedom to lay down any orders you can dream up. If recording macros using a menu-based system is more your style then ROCCAT’s world-famous Macro Manager software is just what you want. The award-winning Macro Manager lets you record and fine-tune your macros with incredible precision -- and with intuitive ease thanks to a gorgeous and simple-to-use interface. The new Loop Function even lets you repeat your settings up to an incredible 255 times. And the internationally-adored program even comes with presets for top games and office apps -- so you can enjoy your favorites with no wait.
  • newegg CONTROL YOUR MEDIA THE EASY WAY The Isku features a row of 8 fully-configurable media keys, optimally positioned at the top of the keyboard -- for quick and easy access to 25 handy functions of your choice. It also features 12 programmable F keys, giving you a full range of customization options.
  • newegg BE IMPRESSED WITH EVERY PRESS The Isku boasts medium height keys with fully-optimized key architecture, giving you a perfect striking surface and ideal keystroke response -- for finger action that feels right every time. The 1000Hz polling rate also ensures ultra-fast keyboard response with no lag, so your commands are carried out instantaneously. And advanced anti-ghosting technology means multiple keys can be depressed simultaneously -- making sure you can take full advantage of every complex command at your disposal.

5 out of 5 eggsEasy to use

Pros: Extremely comfortable to use, key illumination is great. The software was really easy to use as well.

Cons: The "Roccat Talk" feature is only usable if you own both the keyboard AND a Roccat mouse. I would love to use that feature with my Cyborg R.A.T. 5. Also note that the device software was not included in the package, you have to download it from Roccat's website and for some reason, all the driver info on the site was in some Northern European language, even after I switched it to English at the top.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Board

Pros: Good key feel - very responsive - slight tactile and audio feedback - reasonably quiet - slightly concave keys - adjustable backlighting - programmable macro keys - thumb macro keys - works as advertised - software is very functional (but you need to download it)

Cons: No USB or audio ports - large footprint

Other Thoughts: I was bummed that New Egg shipped this only in its display box - but it came through fine. Whew! I wanted a Razor keyboard to match my mouse - but the reviews were bad. Processing an RMA on a Cooler Master board - so I went with Roccat, and now I'm satisfied.

3 out of 5 eggsrollover

Pros: Bunch of features for gaming, extra mod keys. Software has worked OK for me on win8. Keys feel good with even pressure. Construction seems solid compared to other keyboards.

Cons: Use the board for MMOs and it has a rollover issue shift+WASD (any combo of 2) then 4 key causes the 4 to not be recognized, sort of a big deal when you have bindings to an action bar. Tested in word to confirm. It could just be the one I got as it passes the double shift spelling test.

Other Thoughts: Just for the money I expected to not have rollover issues. No other problems otherwise. Three eggs is mainly for the rollover.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

Pros: Looks spectacular
Medium height keys
Bright backlit keys
Large palm rest
Plenty of macros/live recording macros

Cons: Glossy finish around keys may attract fingerprints, but most of keyboard is matte plastic so I dont find myself cleaning it all to often.

Other Thoughts: Overall excellent keyboard, i went with the isku because it was one of the only good-looking, backlit, gaming keyboards I could find for under 85$. I noticed they just discontinued this keyboard and released the Roccat isku FX version which for 25$ more, it only provides a timer and color-changing backlight.

2 out of 5 eggsMaterials are nice keyboard is returned

Pros: The quality and the thumb buttons are what attracted me to try this out. That as well as back-lighting.

Cons: The keys feel more or less like a laptop. I have a hard time in the dark realizing where I am at while gaming. Then I end up pressing the wrong spell or macro. This blends down into the back-light keys color diffusion. At the angle of one person sitting in front of a desk the keys are illegible during the night. I know the keyboard, however I feel like I get a headache if I try to look at it during low light situations.

Other Thoughts: I returned this. I game on a G15 as well as a laptop. I feel I have more control with the laptop keys over this board. I think Roccat is making great stuff, just going to take a few more tries to churn out a superb product. I do own a headset from them I love.

5 out of 5 eggsIt does What It's Supposed To

Pros: The box this keyboard comes in is a work of art, its glossy beautiful and eye catching. It was packaged well, the keyboard itself is matte black with certain parts glossy black. The blue LED lights are plenty bright, their is 5 different levels of brightness including off. The keys are fluid and quiet. Like many have said the LED needs to be viewed a certain way to fill in the whole character but its really not bothersome, especially if you know where the characters are.

I almost didn't buy this because people were not satisfied with it on here and then I realized people on here are way to hyper critical. Its a keyboard it lights up its clean and functional but it and then get on with your lives.

Cons: NONE
