If you happen to be a casual/pro gamer or a professional who needs to type a lot chances are you're already well aware of the benefits of owning a good mechanical gaming keyboard including the far superior build quality compared to membrane models and of course the tactile and audible feedback they can offer. Well it seems that after several mechanical keyboard reviews lately many of you have emailed us saying that tenkeyless models are the future of gaming and asking for more such reviews and although we don't quite agree with that (then again we don't attend LAN parties any more like in the past so size is not really an issue) i always want to cover your requests the best way i can. So todays review is about one such model and more specifically the Strike Battle Mechanical Compact Gaming Keyboard with Cherry MX mechanical switches by our friends over at OZONE Gaming.

The Strike Battle is a tenkeyless gaming keyboard (88 keys) that gets shipped with Cherry MX blue, brown, red and black mechanical switches that feature a lifecycle of up to 50 million keystrokes. It also has a top aluminum plate (available in black and red), 6-level red LED backlight for the keys, fully supports N-key rollover and has 64kb of onboard memory in which it stores its 5 available profiles each of which can have up to 6 assigned macro keys (30 macros in total). True the Strike Battle is not one of the most feature-rich keyboards we've ever seen but tenkeyless models are generally cut-down versions of full sized ones so we never expect many bells and whistles to begin with (the Atlas G410 by Logitech is an exception to that rule). On the other hand tenkeyless models are known for their durable construction so let's check the Strike Battle out and see if it has what it takes to be your LAN party companion.
