The ROG Strix Flare PNK LTD
The ROG Strix Flare features a hairline finish that traverses the right side and runs parallel to a diagonal slash that cuts right down to the keyboard’s bottom edge. With the matte pink and textured finish right next to each other, there’s an almost two-toned effect that’s edgy without being too aggressive. The slash is continued through to the detachable palm rest, which is all grey.keyboard1The keyboard itself is predominantly pink, save for a few key elements (no pun intended). The easy-to-reach media controls on the left are grey, including the rubberized volume wheel, which is ridged for easy scrolling as you stretch your fingers on your left hand up to reach it. Rubber tends to collect dirt, and any debris trapped in the ridges would be really obvious if it were pink, so grey is a better choice. The primary alphanumeric zone is decked out to match, with gloriously pink function keys that blend into the body of the keyboard. The customizable acrylic insert still comes emblazoned with the ROG logo, though you can DIY your own with the blank insert that ships in the box.
Underneath, it’s the same Strix Flare you know and love. Per-key RGB lighting can be used to go all out on pink or you can go wild with a rainbow of colors that pulse in and out with different effects. The Strix Flare is available with a range of switch types, and the PNK LTD edition has the choice of Cherry MX Red, Brown, or Blue switches, depending on your preference for switch feel.
