ROCCAT Isku+ Force FX Gaming Keyboard Review

The ROCCAT ISKU+ Force FX gives the consumer a different way to play

ROCCAT Isku+ Force FXWhen we talk about switches with keyboards there are two main types: mechanical and membrane switch keyboard. Granted, there are more than just those however, most involve a switch. A switch (in the case of a keyboard switch) is designed to break or create the electrical contact which, means that it can only exist in either the on or off position. The Roccat Isku+ Force FX keyboard is quite different. The main portion of the keyboard is a membrane style switch but the QWEASD keys are pressure sensitive. These pressure sensitive switches do not always have to exist in the on or off position. They can be set to exist in various states in between.
