Sporting a wireless 2.4 GHz connection, you can have a cable-free experience that frees your desktop from haphazard wires. Use the included USB cable to charge up your Falchion or use it permanently as a wired keyboard if you prefer. The interactive touch panel on the side of the keyboard allows you to conveniently adjust volume, create shortcuts, copy and paste, and even give you real-time battery status as you play. Additionally, a polycarbonate keyboard cover protects your keycaps from damage when traveling and can be placed under the keyboard when in use.

Interactive Touch Panel
Located on the side of the Falchion you will find an interactive touch panel, feeding you real-time battery status as well as enabling functionality such as volume adjustment and shortcut access. Additionally, you can program the touch panel as a macro key for intuitive controls while gaming.
Internal Battery
Designed for prolonged use, the integrated battery has the potential to last up to 450 hours with RGB lighting effects turned off. A quick 30 minute charge gives you up to 32 hours of playtime. You can also use the keyboard in wired mode with the included USB cable.
Aura Sync RGB Lighting
Experience per-key lighting and cross-peripheral color synchronization with ASUS Aura Sync RGB integration. With Armoury Crate software, you can customize your keyboard with various colors and effects for a unique personal style. Additionally, you can save up to six profiles, including up to five custom schemes, and use them at any time.
Additional Key Support
Despite the compact nature of the Falchion, you still have access to function keys and media controls for an experience akin to full-sized keyboards. On-the-fly macro recording allows you to quickly program functions with ease, essential for online gaming. Fn lock key allows you to switch key modes for different scenarios. Disable the touch panel and Windows key with a single press for undisturbed gaming.
Keyboard Cover
The polycarbonate keyboard cover is included with the Falchion and is placed over the keys, protecting your caps from damage whether you are at home or traveling. The cover can be placed under the keyboard for convenient storage while providing continued access to the touch panel.
Cherry MX RGB Red Switches
Equipped with Cherry MX RGB Red mechanical switches, you have optimal actuation and responsiveness with every keystroke. Anti-ghosting technology and N-key rollover ensures every keystroke is registered accurately for an enhanced typing experience ideal for gaming enthusiasts.
Durable Doubleshot Keycaps
Designed for longevity, PBT Doubleshot keycaps provide a unique premium feel that lasts. The mid-height keycaps reduce wobble and provide a more comfortable user experience, suitable for long gaming sessions.

The color Miz is incredible and the RGB lights are super bright! Feels amazing and I loved it.

Failed 2 months after purchase

Keyboard inputs keys that I’m not clicking. For example during gameplay suddenly the s key will be recorded as pressed even though I’m not pressing anything. Makes it so the keyboard is unreliable and useless. This happens over wireless and wired connections.

AWESOME LITTLE KB A MUST HAVE!!!

Awesome Little KB great build the extra thought put into the details is the reason I decided to go with ASUS. From the dust cover shell to protect from dust and protect the key while in your bag AWESOME!! The slide button on the side to control the lighting or whatever the user decides A++ to the design team it's the small things that matter and make the differences.

great keyboard, lacks aftermarket customization

the only downside to this keyboard is the difficult stabs and the fact that ROG doesn't make aftermarket keycap sets when they dont use standard sizing. other than that this keyboard functions flawlessly. (if you interested in replacement keycaps, you can find the what the non standard sizes are on reddit) wouldve been nice for asus to at least give us that information

It's great gaming keyboard with great lightning, but be careful cause board is using 2.4 ghz so it could be problems with wi-fi (in case you use laptop on wi-fi mode as me) Overall great buy

Will the keys stay lit when it is unplugged? The one I purchased from Redragon only stays lighted if it is connected to the PC, sorta defeats the purpose of being wireless; cannot see the keys at night it goes dark, until you press a key then it wakes up

You can use the RGB lighting on battery but it will shorten the battery life.
