Summary

The ASUS ROG Strix Scope II 96 Wireless is one of the best wireless mechanical keyboards you can get if you choose to not go the custom route.

Overall
8.4/10
8.4/10

Pros

+ Very custom-friendly (hot-swappable switches, 3rd party keycaps, etc.)
+ Already great right out of the box (minimal wobbling, satisfying keypresses, etc.)
+ Doubleshot PBT keycaps feel good, enhances RGB lighting
+ 96% layout is a godsend
+ ROG NX Snow is one of the best linear switches around
+ Can detect up to 25 keypresses at once
+ Tri-connectivity is a blessing to have
+ Class-leading battery life

Cons

– Only a single layer of programmability for its keys
– Armoury Crate software is still a pain to use
– Keycaps aren’t standardized for every region, some get ABS, others get PBT
– Recessed USB-C port limits the USB cables that can be used
