Features

ROCCAT Isku FX

ROCCAT Talk Combine Devices - For Unstoppable Power
ROCCAT Talk lets your compatible ROCCAT gaming devices join forces - for amazing Set Bonus advantages that let you play faster, win more and enjoy a more intense game.

The ROCCAT Isku FX Multicolor Gaming Keyboard, the Kone XTD and the Kone Pure are the world's first devices to be connected with the ROCCAT Talk protocol - and they work great together.

For example, ROCCAT Talk lets you take advantage of our exclusive Easy-Shift+ technology like never before. Now you can use the Easy-Shift+ key on your Isku FX to activate macros for both the keyboard and mouse - a one-stop short-cut that makes giving orders quicker and easier.

ROCCAT Talk also lets you use our exclusive Easy-Aim technology to perfection when playing with the Isku FX and the Kone XTD or Kone Pure. When you need precise marksmanship in sniper mode, just press and hold a single Isku FX key and Easy-Aim will instantly optimize the DPI setting on your Kone XTD or Kone Pure. This unprecedented two-handed team marksmanship is the most convenient way ever to be the deadliest sniper in the game.

ROCCAT Talk FX Lets the Action Flow Straight to Your ROCCAT Device
The powerful ROCCAT Talk protocol can also forge unprecedented software and hardware alliances thanks to a bold new feature called ROCCAT Talk FX, which translates on-screen game action into exciting sensory effects on your gaming hardware - for a new level of intensity-packed play.

ROCCAT Talk FX offers a wide range of amazing feature possibilities for compatible software and for enabled devices like the ROCCAT Isku FX, the Kone XTD, and the Kone Pure gaming mice. For example, with the ROCCAT Talk FX Event Lighting feature, the lighting system on your device will activate in a certain color every time a corresponding in-game event occurs. Imagine getting hit with a fireball in your favorite RPG and having your Isku FX explode in glowing red bursts that dramatically mirror the on-screen attack! Or imagine getting shot with a poison-tipped arrow and having your mouse pulse in bursts of toxic green light that echo the nasty poison pumping through your veins! ROCCAT Talk FX makes that kind of thrilling sensory gaming excitement a reality.

ROCCAT Talk FX also makes possible additional ambient lighting effects that can greatly enhance the mood and intensity of your gameplay. Imagine running through a jungle in your favorite first-person shooter and having your gaming device emanate a dark green glow that brings that jungle feel right down to your desktop - or swimming while your mouse glows in a shimmering ocean blue. And there's much more. ROCCAT Talk FX's sensory messages can also be used to get important in-game notifications in a revolutionary new way. Imagine having your gaming hardware - not just the software - alert you when your home base is under attack, or when production of an important building is finished. A groundbreaking way to better gaming.

ROCCAT Isku FX


Hunt Your Prey Instead of Hunting for Keys
The Isku FX is the only keyboard in the world to feature our groundbreaking Easy-Shift+ technology, which offers you the wonder of 36 easily-customizable macros strategically positioned in three 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.

The Easy-Shift+ zone gives you an impressive 28 macros keys - including 8 dedicated keys that can be doubly programmed. 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.

Get Your Thumbs into the Fight
Are all your digits in? Now you can give your thumbs something useful to do instead of just hovering over the spacebar. Our ROCCAT scientists put three individually-programmable Thumbster macro keys right below the Isku FX's spacebar - each easily activated with a quick thumb strike. Perfect for casting a lightning-quick healing spell in the middle of a tough fight. Brilliant for a rapid weapon change. Think of your thumbs as two new eager allies. Thumbs up to that.

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. And you won't have to leave your game to do it.

Record Macros at Your Leisure
If recording macros using a menu-based system is more your style then our 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.

Jump into the Fray Right Away
Save your favorite settings - button configurations, lighting level, DPI preference, etc. - in five handy profile slots and activate each instantaneously with the simple press of a button - so you can game your way with speed and ease. You'll always know which profile you've chosen thanks to five bright LED profile indicators. And with the clever Sound Feedback tool, the world-famous ROCCAT Voice will even tell you which profile you've selected. You can even set a profile for Windows which the Isku FX will automatically switch back to when you've finished gaming.

Be the Master of Darkness
Thanks to its off-white UV-coated keys and your choice of backlighting in 16.8 million colors and 6 adjustable brightness levels, the Isku FX makes it easy to always hit the right key - even in low lighting. The Isku FX's optimized illumination also means it's perfect for avoiding eye strain during those long gaming sessions. Plus, you can program the Isku FX 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. And did we mention Isku FX's keyboard illumination simply looks awesome?

Pamper Your Wrists
The Isku FX's Integrated Extra-Large Granular Wrist Rest acts like a sofa for your hands, providing perfect stability and comfort - so you can avoid wrist fatigue even when gaming into the wee hours. Its advanced granular surface also enables fast, yet controlled, lateral movement - for optimized play even during the most hectic battles.

Stay Locked and Loaded
Flip the Isku FX over (don't worry, it won't bite) and you'll find five rubberized Non-Slip Gaming Boots and two rubberized Lock-Fast Gaming Feet. This means the Isku FX stays put - even during the most intense play session. The retractable gaming feet also position the Isku at the ideal gaming angle of 5.90 degrees - ensuring the quickest key activation and best typing comfort possible.

Be Impressed with Every Press
The Isku FX 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.

Cure Cable Chaos
Your headset and mouse cables can now easily be tidied away using the handy cable channels under the Isku FX. And no cable mess means less to get in the way of you enjoying your game.

5 out of 5 eggsSurprisingly good

Pros: I wanted to replace my ancient G15 when I built my new gaming rig, but I didn't have much budget left over for doo-dads. I went to Best Buy but they didn't seem to have the selection of keyboards they used to, and I didn't want a boring one. So I took the plunge and got this even though I was skeptical about the brand and the almost too good to be true price.

I was pleasantly surprised. Overall, it looks pretty sharp for the price. The driver is very full-featured with a ton of customization options, but you have to D/L from their site, no CD comes with. You can create profiles to make it behave differently for different programs. The ability to make the keys light up in any color and brightness you want is pretty cool. The keys feel good to the touch and have good feedback.

Physically the keyboard is very low profile and pretty light, but sits solidly on my desk, I don't have to chase it around. The hand rest on the bottom is very solid and nothing jiggles or rattles on it anywhere.

I didn't really care for the three thumb buttons under the space bar when I ordered it, but they are very useful and have a good solid feel to them. I thought they'd be chintzy and easy to misclick from the picture, but they're well positioned and require some force to press.

Cons: The only real con I would give it is that the lighting on the number keys on the keyboard doesn't seem to cover the symbols on top completely. On mine, they sort of fade out a little near the top and it looks like the keys have dirt on them from a low angle. When looking directly down at the keyboard you don't notice this as much. Still, if they told me they could fix it, I wouldn't bother sending it back it's so minor, so not worth knocking an egg off.

Another thing could be that all the non-key lights are deep blue, which I personally like, but might clash if you want the keys a different color than blue. But I'm really stretching for cons here.

Other Thoughts: The guy who said the narrator for the driver software sounds like George Carlin was spot on. I giggled at that myself. The logo looks a lot like the Thundercats logo , which could be good or bad depending on your world-view of Thundercats.

5 out of 5 eggsMore Features than I have ever seen!

Pros: Great size, solid construction, a lot of buttons to work with, and great drivers for everything. Ive seen a few bad reviews about "slow update times" from changing settings on the drivers to them taking effect, but they've never been longer than 2 and a half seconds for the changes, and even THAT was the longest Ive had in delays.

The driver program is VERY extensive, and you can change more than just the extra buttons, you can change the function keys, the media buttons, making them as short cuts and having profile switching is a very handy thing. You can literally set the keyboard to go into gaming mode, change color pending on what gaming mode you put it in, record macros on the fly, I was earnestly impressed. The board even came with pre-sets for various games like WoW, TF2, Crysis, etc, to basic program and computer functions for photoshop, editing programs, shut down hibernate, wake up, as well as functions for Team Speak. Those features really surprised me.

And the color customization was no joke, to include an optional "breathing" effect and color cycle mode.

Also, based on the images, it LOOKS like the three buttons below the space bar are not low enough, but they are, you can easily tap them when you need to.It can even keep track of key strokes, both total and WASD. I apparently dive to the right more often than to the left. The entire thing was one big surprise and I would gladly purchase the board again and highly recommend it.

Cons: Sadly, this ALMOST lost star for me as I got this for gaming,
The extra keys are NOT "Extra Keys" I was hoping that they would be quasi joy-stick or extra mouse button keys, but they are not sadly, that is not to say you cant make them be short cuts for things, such making a profile for a game, which has buttons in awkward spots, just make the bonus keys act as said keys, don't even need to reconfigure the game. Its not an issue, but I was looking forward to having 8 extra buttons that weren't linked to any key presses. If it were possible, it would loose only half an egg for this, but, all of the other features more than made up for this slight draw back for me.

Other Thoughts: Lastly, and I had to mention this, specifically. The keyboard has the option to have a voice state when you change profiles, or when you are recording, or stopped recording a macro. If you don't like it, you can easily turn it off, or have it work for just the macro recording or just the profile swapping.

That being said, I swear it sounds like George Carline recorded it. The moment I heard that voice the only thing I heard after that were hilarious quotes from his comedy skits that I sadly cannot recite here. Again, not a pro, or a con, just something that I was laughing historically at when my computer suddenly started channeling the ghost of George Carlin.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome job.

Pros: Well made, no space bar sway. Took a 6 foot high drop and works fine and without a scratch.

Buttons are light to press and feel amazing, I compared it to my friends $2k laptop.

Macro's are extremely customizable.

Easy shift along with the Roccat Kone + is quick and easy, makes gaming quick, keeps pace smooth, and the overall experience fun.

Plenty of button macros within reach, including the thumbster keys and the "easy zone"

Quite a big keyboard. This is a pro for me mostly because I could not stand the small size of my previous $10 Dell keyboard.

Lights a vivid and create a nice effect. Fixed the problem of the normal Isku where you had to view the lights from exactly 90 degrees.

Cons: Thumbster keys are a bit of a pain, with mine at least. Even before I did the drop test you needed to press the buttons directly in the middle for it to register.

Lights, while amazing, do not light up the full key. This is not noticeable in all the buttons, however. Only a few, namely the enter and shift button on mine.

Software takes a while to respond. You will change the smallest thing and have to wait a full minute for the program to register and apply the change, and in that time you can use the software.

If you buy this in conjunction with the Roccat Kone, keep in mind that the Roccat Talk FX feature only works with the Kone + and up, and that the program is essentially in a public alpha stage.

Other Thoughts: I ordered this when it first released and I could not be happier with it, well worth $150 in my honest opinion.
