ASUS Cerberus Mechanical RGB Keyboard Review

Rating: 7.5.

The ASUS Cerberus Mechanical RGB Keyboard is the newest addition to the line up of existing gaming keyboards in the Cerberus series. The Cerberus range is reasonably budget friendly when it comes to gaming peripherals but the Cerberus Mech RGB boasts a range of features normally found on more expensive keyboards . With mechanical keys, fully customisable RGB back-lighting and a retail price of £100 – is the Cerberus as good as it sounds?

KItGuru says: The Cerberus mechanical RGB is a solid technical design and is worth considering – but it faces some very stiff competition in 2017.
