Topic: ASUS Cerberus Mech RGB Keyboard Review

A mechanical keyboard with RGB lighting? That can only mean one thing. A piece of kit aimed firmly at the gamer market. And the ASUS Cerberus Mech RGB is definitely a solid entry on that front, especially when you factor in that it weighs in at over 1.2kg. Great features, solid mechanical keys, and funky lights round out this very cool gaming keyboard.


Solid can often be sued to describe peripherals, which refers to build quality often citing weight. The ASUS Cerberus Mech RGB is not only solid, it’s the sort of keyboard that you’ll need two hands to even think about making it budge or move after it’s situated on a desk. Which is actually really impressive, because in the world of PC gaming tech keyboards are the only real items where a weight of well over 1kg makes any sort of sense.

The Cerberus has a great soft rubberised finish which helps amplify the RGB lighting. It’s a great feel that works well with the Kaihua mechanical switches. The extra weight and the quality switches, rated at 70-million-keystroke-lifespan, make for a great type. And an even better game.

When are keyboard manufacturers going to learn that if you give me an $80 keyboard with volume buttons, I'll take it over a $150 one?

It's practically the only reason I bought the K75 over cheaper models :(

I'm waiting for the Asus Horus GK2000 RGB to come out in Australia. I need my wrist pad!

Yep, I think one of the big things lacking in these gaming keyboards are proper wrist pads.... tried looking for a separate wrist pad the other day and couldn't find one...

Any chance you can get ASUS to send you a reviewers copy of that ?? I'll gladly take it off your hands afterwards.

It's already available internationally. Thinking of getting it shipped here but gonna give it another couple of weeks to arrive locally.

Hah! Actually with the number of hardware partners we've got at the moment. If anyone is keen on actually reviewing peripherals and PC hardware let me know.

I'm waiting for a low profile, low key-profile mech keyboard. A few manufacturers are about to come out with them...

This ^^

Yep! Sign me up. What hardware specifically?

My brother would be interested in mechanical keyboards, he loves em for some reason.

@Kosta - I have a full Asus Aura RGB system (case, mobo, ram, gfx all aura enabled) that I have just built, so if you can get a Horus for me to review, I can do a thorough job.

Awesome... Striker I've put in a request as that sounds right up your alley... Greazy, mech keyboards shouldn't be problem either... HyperX are coming out with a low profile one soon... anyone interested drop me an email at kosta[at]ausgamers.com

This can extend to everything from peripherals to cases to cooling to perhaps even components and storage too

Then we can build a AsuGamers hardware review powerhouse together! :)
