Ozone Strike Pro Backlit Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review

Ozone Strike Pro Mechanical Keyboard




Looking at the Strike Pro's left side, we see that the upper frame section wraps around the keys and goes all the way to the bottom, improving how it looks on the desk. If you look at the key caps when this keyboard is flat on the table, then you will notice they lean ever so slightly away from the user.




All of the keys on the keyboard have this same smooth rubberized coating applied, but the F and J keys have tall ridges to associate your fingers to the keys blindly. Each cap is also cylindrical in shape as they almost move your fingertips to the center of each cap.




The left side of the keyboard offers the typical US layout with the right Windows key sporting the Ozone logo on it to go along with the Strike Pro painted onto the built-in wrist rest and the leading edge of the space bar.




While holding down the Ozone key on the bottom, these F-keys will also allow you to decrease or increase the response time on F1 and F2, while F3 and F4 are for adjusting the polling rate at the keyboard rather than via software. On the F5 and F6 keys, we start the multimedia section with the play/pause and the stop buttons.




As we continue with the F7 and F8 keys, they offer track selection; we then see the F9 key with a music note, which is the key used to start Media Player. Then we also get the mute, volume down, and volume up buttons on the F10 through F12 keys.




The right side of the board offers all of the usual command and number pad keys we would expect to find, but along with the logo made of aluminum, there's a lack of LEDs to denote the lock functions. This is due to allowing four keys to not be illuminated most of the time and illuminated once the locks are applied.




Looking a bit closer to the key caps, we can also see there is a G-mode button to lock out the Windows key and a lighting button next to it that cycles through off, pulsating, 30 percent, 50 percent, and 100 percent LED brightness. On the six keys below that, you use the Ozone button and M1 through M6 for the Marcos programmed and set to each key via software.
