General + -
Our global verdict about this keyboard is generally positive as ASUS managed to create a solid product. We like the fact that this keyboard is heavy, features simple, standard design and therefore also a standard layout. Apart from that there is a RGB backlight, which is clear and precise and definitely bright enough.   - Weight
- Lightning effects
Manufacturing quality / Ergonomics   + -
The Cerberus MECH RGB is the first gaming keyboard that we receive from ASUS. This keyboard looks comfortable to use and all the keys are well placed and easy to reach so you will not find yourself pressing the wrong key by accident. The Cerberus MECH RGB comes with a rather standard layout and there aren't any additional macro buttons. There are programmable F-buttons, through which you can access macros by pressing FN and the corresponding F-key. In addition there are also multimedia functions already programmed.

The entire chassis sports a matte finish which looks and feels great, however it's a dust magnet. If you have oily fingers, you will leave an impression for sure. The material looks rather similar to the soft touch but it's more velvety.

Regarding the Kailh Red switches we can say, they're precise and linear while providing good feedback. Last but not least, the RGB backlight is very good and it offers several lighting effects pre-programmed. If you want change the color or other details, you have to install the ASUS software.

- Rubberised finish
Software   + -
The software is one of downsides of this product, since the graphic user interface is simply not up-to-date in terms of layout and design. We would like to see a clear structure where it's a simple as possible to find all the different settings.     - Not always easy to use
Recommendation / Price   + -
The starting price of the Cerberus MECH RGB on Geizhals is 109 euro excluding shipping costs. In terms of value, the keyboard is certainly a good product with attractive features and MECH mechanical switches. Furthermore it comes with RGB backlight that is rather pleasant to see. We hope to see a better software from ASUS during next months.   + Price  
We gave the Cerberus MECH RGB from ASUS 4 out of 5 stars.
