ASUS TUF Gaming K3 Keyboard Review
Peter Donnell / 6 months ago
ASUS is one of the leading names when it comes to gaming hardware. They’ve got an incredible range of motherboards, power supplies, graphics cards, CPU coolers, even PC cases. They have a little bit of everything really. Their TUF series has always been a big hit with gamers though, thanks to it literally meaning TOUGH, and being a more durable long-lasting product line for those who want a more reliable and quality product. However, these days it also means TUF Gaming Alliance, which includes a lot of ASUS products, but also many other brands products now too. TUF Gaming Alliance products are certified to be compatible with each other, while also following a design philosophy to make sure they look great together too. Lots of black, grey and yellow with that digital camo effect basically; which is awesome.

You get a USB pass-through port, programmable keys, on-board profile storage, etc. Of course, you get their lovely aluminium top and a boot full of RGB too, so it should look pretty fantastic.
