As an upgrade to the ASUS ROG Strix Scope RX, which we already presented on our site, ASUS offers a new high-end gaming keyboard in their portfolio. The ASUS ROG Claymore II once again features optical-mechanical switches, the so-called ROG RX switches. In addition, there are other new features like a modular TKL-80% or 100% keyboard function, wired and wireless 2.4G modes, extra customizable click hotkeys, volume controls, and the familiar Aura sync.

Packaging & Scope of delivery
The Claymore II is shipped in a typical looking ASUS ROG packaging. Standing out from the black and red design is the keyboard with Aura RGB colors in the foreground. On both the front and back of the packaging, the most important information about the keyboard can be found again.
If you open the black inner packaging, you will see a keyboard that has been packaged very nicely. The keyboard itself has been packaged here in black cloth bags with a red ROG logo. These look very high quality and make unpacking literally an experience. They also serve their purpose even after unpacking, as they can be used as dust protection or to prevent scratches during transport. Of course, not only the Claymore II including the Numpad is in the packaging, but also a USB-C cable for charging, two USB adapters, a small envelope with user manual plus stickers and finally the palm rest.
