Roccat Isku and Kone+ Review

 

The Isku and Kone+ are such a great combo that you will lose key features if you pair either device with another manufacturer's alternative.

Roccat Isku Illuminated Gaming Keyboard

 

The Roccat Isku is a solid gaming keyboard with good overall functionality, but a few details about it might not appeal to everyone.

Offers up to 25 programmable macros. Easy on-the-fly macro recording. Roccat Talk lets you pair with another device for enhanced functionality.

Integrated wrist rest makes for a giant footprint. Key labels can be difficult to read in low light. Backlight color not adjustable.

Good price ; Talks with mouse ; Illumination ; Sturdy ; Letters don't smudge off ; Easy to record macros ; Lots of macro keys

The ISKU Illuminated Gaming Keyboard from ROCCAT seems to be pretty good, sturdy and tough. It's a solid gaming keyboard and the keys never fell apart and even after pretty heavy use over the past months and-a-bit, the letters and numbers haven't...

ROCCAT Isku Illuminated Gaming Keyboard Review

 

Conclusion I can honestly say that Roccat came from out of nowhere. Seldom do we see a company instantly make a mark in this industry. Unlike the majority of the companies I deal with Roccat's main market is gaming peripherals. In the world of the...
