In my quest for an affordably priced wireless keyboard, the market certainly doesn’t disappoint. Recently, our friends at Mad Catz provided us with their S.T.R.I.K.E. 11 mechanical keyboard to put through its paces. Upon first glance, its distinct design immediately catches the eye. Featuring a sleek red and black color scheme, the keyboard exudes a bold aesthetic without being overpowering. Notably, the space key stands out with Mad Catz’s signature claw design, complemented by tasteful gold accents and branding against the backdrop of black metal.
Delving into its technical aspects, the Strike 11 boasts Hotswappable Mad Catz mechanical red switches, enhancing the typing experience. The key travel feels smooth, striking a balance between tactile feedback and noise level. Crafted from aluminum, the frame lends a sturdy weight to prevent undesired movement during use, without contributing additional noise. As expected from modern keyboards, customizable RGB backlighting is a feature, with a variety of options available. Opting for a refined white backlight, I found the customization options to be virtually limitless.
