ASUS ROG Keris comes in a typical cardboard box with lots of information, specifications, and pictures on it. Inside the box, we find the mouse, two Omron switches (D2F-01F), additional mouse feet, a quick-start guide, warranty guide, and sticker in the box.
The ASUS ROG Keris features a familiar ergo shape, it has no comfort grooves on the buttons, and the sides are slightly curved which feels a pretty neutral shape that should satisfy most users. The shape is mainly designed for right-handed users and perfect for both claw and fingertip grip.
The sides are slightly concave which helps to grip and pick up the mouse. On the right side, we see two buttons that poisoned the upper side so they don’t get in the way which gripping the mouse.
The ASUS ROG Keris features standard left-right clicks and a scroll wheel. The main buttons on the Keris Wireless are excellent. Pre-travel is low and post-travel moderate to low, resulting in a very firm and satisfying click response. But if you don’t like them you can replaced with either Omron D2F Series (D2F, D2F-F, D2F-01, D2F-01F) or Omron D2FC Series (D2FC-F-7N, D2FC-F-7N (10M), D2FC-F-7N (20M), D2FC-3M) switches. Changing the switch is as simple as pulling the old one out and putting the new one in.

At the bottom, ASUS ROG Keris comes with pure PTFE (Teflon) feet with slightly rounded edges. Also, there is a ring around the sensor that ensures added smoothness. ASUS includes a set of replacement feet in the box, which is always very handy. We also find the DPI button here which switches your DPI settings on the fly. All you need to do is to press and hold the DPI button and spin the scroll wheel to set the sensitivity level from the mouse itself. The colour shown on the scroll wheel represents the DPI range it is in.
- Blue: 100 – 4,000 DPI
- Green: 4,100 – 8,000 DPI
- Orange: 8,100 – 12,000 DPI
- Red: 12,100 – 16,000 DPI
The cable is braided and it’s 1.8m long and softly braided which helps to move easily.
