The ROG brand from Asus screams form over functionality with the over-the-top design language and the overabundance of RGB. But that is doing the engineers at Asus a disservice. The hardware may be somewhat “gamery” in look, but they are excellent additions to anyone’s setup.
The latest addition to their keyboard line-up is the Claymore II, a mechanical keyboard that piggy backs off the latest TKL craze (that is Ten Keyless for those of you who are confused) but gives you the option of adding a number pad for when you just have to Excel.
In the box you get the keyboard, the modular number pad and a magnetic wrist rest. The keyboard and the number pad are wrapped in a nice pair of soft fake suede bags ideal for storage when not in use. Since the keyboard is wireless, 2.4GHz wireless via a USB dongle, you do get a good length braided USB Type C to Type C cable for charging and for those who prefer a wired conection. Since most systems still do not have USB Type C ports or rather only one, Asus have handily included a Type C to Type A adapter.
The aluminium base plate gives it a nice heft as well nigh on zero flex.
The keyboard's party piece is the modular number pad.
...you get a 4000 mAh battery that Asus claims will last for up to 43 hours with full lighting on.
