The S.T.R.I.K.E. M might look a little out of place in some living rooms, with an "angular, glossy shape" that PC Mag says resembles "a sense of science fiction." IGN India agrees, calling it "something ripped out of a spaceship or a StarCraft game or one of those weird 80â€™s electric guitars." It may look a little unusual, but they don't really see that as a bad thing, saying it "looks fantastic from every conceivable angle."
However, however great the S.T.R.I.K.E. M may look, that doesn't extend to its feel. Though IGN India finds the keyboard "light and easy to handle" they note that the plastics used "will not win any awards." That doesn't mean it's extremely cheap and flimsy, though, and IGN India thinks it can still take "a bumpy journey in the bag, or a few drops off the sides of a couch."
Unfortunately, if you have big hands you might not be able to tolerate this keyboard at all. Android Police calls it so "ridiculously tiny that it's nearly impossible to accurately key in any information," making it "essentially unusable." But those with smaller hands will appreciate the responsive scissor switches under each key, which PC Mag finds "offer just enough give and springiness to feel satisfying once you get used to the layout." It took Forbes a week to get used to typing on the S.T.R.I.K.E. M, and even now they wish the keyboard had "another inch of width across the device to give the keys a little bit more spacing."
For all the room the S.T.R.I.K.E. M doesn't give your fingers, it still has plenty of flexibility in how you can use it: the keyboard can pair via Bluetooth with up to four devices, like a PC, a TV, a tablet or even your phone. You won't be typing long emails with it, but PC Mag still feels it's an "ideal accessory" for controlling a home theater PC or Android device connected to your television.
