Tiny mechanical keyboards are all the rage at the moment. But the ones from gaming companies like Razer and Corsair try to be everything to everyone: ideal companions for both desktops and mobiles. Asus is taking a more focused approach with the ROG Falchion. With an RF-only wireless USB connection, it’s laser-targeted at PC gamers.
The Falchion should look familiar if you’re a mech keyboard enthusiast. It’s using the unofficial “65 percent” layout, with one extra column of keys beyond the absolute minimum alphanumeric arrangement. This gives it just enough space for a full arrow cluster—a must-have for many users, particularly gamers.
It’s got the touch
But the Falchion also has a hidden trick: a touch-sensitive strip on the left side of the case, cleverly concealing volume controls. This is a smart addition for such a small keyboard. The strip is illuminated. When you touch it, the light indicates volume level while you make adjustments. When not touched, the light indicates battery level.
