Roccat Ryos MK Pro

 

The Ryos MK Pro is Roccat's first mechanical gaming keyboard, and this top-of-the-line model is packed with features.

Mechanical keyboard. Has choice of four key switch styles. Individually backlit keys. Smudge-reducing finish. Dozens of programmable options. Customizable lighting modes. Built-in USB and audio pass-through connections

Blue is your only choice for backlight. Built-in wrist rest is bulky, can't be removed

Roccat has been making a name for itself in the gaming peripheral market for some time, with well-made mice and keyboards that share functionality between devices and offer unique features for less. Carrying this principle forward is the Roccat Ryos MK...

Roccat Ryos MK Mechanical Gaming Keyboard

 

Today we are taking a look at a mechanical keyboard from Roccat; they sent us their Ryos MK with black Cherry MX switches. How well does this feel vs the other competitors from companies like Razer and Thermaltake for example? Lets find out! About...

Comfortable ; Cherry mx switches ; Good software ; M keys if you like those

Cable not sleeved

You can pick up this keyboard for around 159$ so the price tag is fairly ok compared to the competitors. Overall, this is both a comfortable and good quality keyboard. Simply put, a VERY nice product! The keys are a bit stiff at first but after using...

ROCCAT Ryos MK Glow mechanical gaming keyboard review

 

When it comes to PC gaming, one of the sounds you hate to hear is that “beep!” when you've pressed down too many keys. This is due to most average keyboards having a set number of keys allowed to be pressed at the same time. The way to combat this is...

Excellent tactile feel ; Very reactive keys ; Easy to program macros ; Sturdy and heavy enough to not slide around on your desk

Not for small desks

Roccat Ryos MK Pro

 

The Ryos MK Pro is one of the most powerful gaming keyboards we have seen. Come learn more by reading the full review.

Plentiful customization options and powerful features set this keyboard apart from the others

This keyboard is backed by lackluster support and a weak warranty

The Ryos MK Pro is a powerful tool in the hands of gamers and serves to improve the gaming experience.

Labs Brief: Roccat Ryos MK Pro

 

Roccat's latest is well-designed, and fantastic for lovers of macros.

Ergonomically we quite liked the design, especially the three macro buttons under the spacebar, which are eminently more usable than the usual positioning to the side of the main keyboard area. In fact, the standout thing about this model is that it is...

ROCCAT Ryos MK Review

 

The first mechanical keyboard from the makers of the Kone Pure and XTD comes complete with Cherry MX Black switches and at a pretty attractive price to boot.

Mechanical keyboard with Cherry MX Black switches ; 8 Macro Keys ; 5 Profiles ; Easy-Shift[+] functionality doubles available keybinds ; ROCCAT Talk allows greater synergy with other ROCCAT peripherals ; Excellent NKRO ; Very competitive price

No illumination ; Software functionality surpassed by competition

ROCCAT’s Ryos MK is a study in contrasting impressions. Perhaps that’s a consequence of its cost-conscious design, or simply the newness of the keyboard, but the dichotomy between hardware and software is pronounced.

Big and Heavy

 

Maybe I will figure out how to love this, but so far, not wonderful.

Does not move around - heavy with good rubber feet

Software setup is NOT intuitive. I am a software developer and this thing is poorly documented ; The KEYS are nearly illegible when not lit because the print is GRAY on BLACK. Just stupid ; Got the BROWN key switches which are supposed to be NOT...

More show than greatness

 

I t is pretty expensive for a keyboard and comes in an impressive box. Once you use it it feels not productive and because there is no guide you can not implement and just test for show the programming features. I would never use them later anyhow. The...

Looks good and has backlit keys; it is heavy what gives it a stable positioning

The technology might be cool for show but is unproductive. The key fonts are not ergonomic. The illumination can not be adapted continuous but in to big steps. The features may be plentyfull but nobody needs all of it and the worse is that there is no...

Excellent keyboard

 

Overall, I would say an 9/10, only one color LED and rather limited preset of OS controls for the keyboard programmed it. Functionally perfect and the bells and whistles are definitely worth it. Gave it 5 stars on new Egg despite an 9/10 as my grips...

Definitely everything I was looking for. As I keep my room rather dark, with only the two desktop monitors and one laptop monitor with any illumination, it helps to have the lighted keys. The function keys are useful, not the best, but when combined...

Among the things that caught me were that the LEDs were only solid blue, I would have preferred red in general, but the timer to disable the lighting makes up for that in a big way. It was nice to get a set of hotkeys preprogrammed, but you can add...
