ASUS ROG Claymore Core Keyboard, Cherry MX Red Mechanical, Aura RGB Back-Lit Keys, Wired, USB 2.0, NKRO, 1000Hz is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent It is the right size, perfect quality switches and the plastic on the keys feels great. The keys do not require too much pressure but they still have a good travel. It doesn't really need the RGB lights, but having it "breath" in the same colour as my mouse is a cool feature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great keyboard and service The keyboard is fantastic and the service from Scan was just as good.

Questions & Answers

Numpad woes

FirstIy, I didn't clock that this keyboard didn't have a numpad but when I unboxed it I just assumed there would be a modifier key to use the missing numpad keys. I can't find any such modifier - is there one? Secondly, I see hints that the numpad will be sold separately but no news on this, what is the latest on this? Thanks
Asked by: chrisboid
Hello, There is no numpad option/modifier for this keyboard. We cannot comment on the availability of any separate numpad at this time. Regards,
