Roccat Arvo Review

 

The Economical Keyboard

Great compact design, Decent amount of features, Sturdy build, Comfortable to use, Economical Price

Keys need a while to get used to, Does not replace a full sized gaming keyboard

The keyboard also has rubber pads at the bottom of each edge to hold the keyboard in place (we all know how annoying it can be to have a the keyboard sliding on the desktop in heated gaming moments), as well as two retractable stands in the upper...

ROCCAT ARVO Compact Gamer Keyboard Review

 

The ARVO from ROCCAT is a perfect keyboard for gamers on the go, because it is light and smaller thanks to its direction keys integrated into the Numeric Pad and it is also durable thanks to its robust metal base. The software application that comes...

Roccat Arvo Gaming Keyboard

 

Features One accessory that is overlooked alot of times is the keyboard when it comes to gaming. Roccat sent us their new Compact Gaming Keyboard named Arvo. This is a extremely compact keyboard for gamers that might not have the space to keep a full...

Illuminated arrow keys ; Steel plate ; Quiet buttons ; Macro keys ; Easy software

Price ; Plastic quality

To start with I have to say that this is a very compact keyboard but still serves as a normal sized one, but I know there are people that want big keyboards to type on so this might not be for you.

ROCCAT Arvo Compact Gaming Keyboard

 

We have seen a various exciting new products from ROCCAT over the past few weeks from headsets to USB-hubs. On the whole they have performed well during testing and have also been impressive in terms of design.

Roccat Arvo review

 

Can this compact gaming keyboard redeem Roccat's previous efforts?

Good build quality ; Well designed ; Compact but not too small

The stealth fighter look may not appeal to all

A solid offering from Roccat that would suit the space starved as well as the regular LAN gamers

ROCCAT Arvo Compact Gaming Keyboard Review

 

We review ROCCAT's second gaming keyboard, compact and feature rich. Jump in to find out what we thought.

Sleek, and very compact ; Price ; Looks great ; Thumbster buttons are very useful

Can be tedious swapping between modes during tasks that use both

We\\\'ve seen an impressive collection of products added under ROCCAT\\\'s SDMS this year, the Arvo being the last to complete the collation. ROCCAT can certainly be proud of what they have achieved in the SDMS.

VERY good buy

 

I bought this when it was on sale for like 40% off, and I've never regretted it, it's definitely worth 50$, dunno about 60$. The thumbster keys are the most brilliant idea I've ever seen, and I'll never be able to go back to a standard keyboard. I had...
