    Default Roccat Ryos MK Glow

    Introduction ROCCAT has been known for delivering exceptional peripherals like keyboards, mice, headphones and mouse pads. They also have notebooks available but only in Germany. However, when it comes to keyboards, they have been a bit behind the times. After taking a year in development, they are ready to introduce gamers to the Ryos Series. We have the opportunity to review the Ryos MK Glow. It features a built-in palm rest, individual LED keys, an anti-smudge surface, fully capable macros and individual key remapping.

    When it comes to their first Mechanical keyboard, ROCCAT makes a bold statement, “The most advanced, most customizable mechanical keyboard ever – NOBODY comes close! Introducing the illuminated ROCCAT™ Ryos MK Glow mechanical gaming keyboard. With an eye-watering number of configuration options and high-quality CHERRY MX key switches, you can break out – and unleash the gaming beast within.”

    We have to ask ourselves, Is ROCCAT being overly confident with their first keyboard? There’s plenty of other manufacturers who have been releasing Mechanical keyboards for years and haven’t claimed to be the most customizable. If their statement is true, will there be room for improvement? These are just a few questions that come to mind after such a bold statement.

    Nice review . This is the keyboard that I have set my eyes on, and the review confirms my intentions.

    I have to admit that I am becoming more and more a fan of Roccat peripherals. Together with this keyboard I want a Roccat Kone XTD.
    The downside of their products is price

    Good review Joe,

    From my very first encounter with Roccat products I have never been disappointed
    they make some of the best keyboard and mouse combinations, their software can be somewhat daunting at times
    but other than that I love their products.

    Other than a mouse pad, this is actually my 2nd product from them and can honestly say I'm completely happy with it. But your right Vinman, their software could have that effect
