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.

LOVE this keyboard. Made very well, performs well. Love the feel of it & weight of it. Like it so much I am considering getting one for my work setup! No other mechanical keyboard compares


Consumer review by:

So far, immaculate.


I'll update this after a full year. So far, this is a great keyboard for gaming at a reasonable price.

Responsive, intuitive, comfortable. Also, I got it for reasonably cheap

None so far

Consumer review by:

Pretty sharp


Despite the flaws and the 4 eggs I really like this keyboard. For all around use it is perfect for my needs.

Very heavy so it does not slide around on the desk at all. Even during intense gaming this guy will not budge, which to me is a great thing. I personally think cherry blacks are the best for gaming. I tried the red and found them way to sensitive..and...

You have to go online to download the driver to fully get this keyboard to work. Also right out of the box the "caps lock" button does not is change to some other hotkey used for macros and such. So basically you have to get the driver...
