Featuring a TKL, tenkeyless design for portability and more desk space for mouse movements, a large control key, 5 on-board profiles and much more – is the Scope Deluxe the perfect FPS gamer’s keyboard?

  • Cherry MX switches.
  • Extra-large control key.
  • Premium aluminium top plate.
  • No flex whatsoever.
  • Super portable.
  • Very comfortable magnetic wrist wrest.
  • Software is easy to use.

Cons:

  • Front light bar hidden by wrist rest, would have preferred the light back across the back of the keyboard.
  • No UK availability at time of writing.

KitGuru says: This keyboard is an absolute dream for FPS players. Of course, if you’re looking for a full-size keyboard this is not for you but the tenkeyless design really excels for the target audience of the Scope TKL Deluxe. The features and functions available on this board means you’re almost sacrificing nothing at all, the RGB is excellent, the design looks great, the extra features work well and overall, we’re huge fans.
