Asus has added another mechanical gaming keyboard to its Republic of Gamers lineup, the Horus GK2000. Named after the Egyptian god of the sky and hunting, the Horus GK2000 is styled with machined aluminum "wings."
That material makes up almost the entirety of the keyboard, and should provide a stable platform for long gaming sessions. The GK2000's Cherry MX Red switches should be good for 50 million keystrokes. A set of programmable macro keys and volume and lighting control knobs complement the keyboard's main layout.
As befits any gaming peripheral these days, the Horus GK2000 comes with red-colored LED lighting. The lights is configurable per individual key with the included software, and the keyboard's onboard memory can store multiple presets.
Asus gave the GK2000 some thought when it came to ergonomics and convenience, too. The Horus GK2000 has a detachable phone stand and two USB ports on its back, along with audio jacks for plugging in headsets. As a final touch, Asus made a neoprene carry case for the GK2000, making it easier for gamers to take it to LAN parties and tournaments.
