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 FX


The Roccat Ryos MK FX one of the most robust, feature-complete gaming keyboards around – and isn't excessively expensive. With RGB backlighting and a huge amount of macro customisation, it's a serious gamer choice.

A multitude of options make the Ryos MK FX the perfect choice for the macro-obsessed gamer.

One Minute Review: Roccat Ryos MK FX


We're going to need a bigger boat. I mean desk.

... decent mark for functionality, but it’s going to need a lot of desk space and a particular kind of taste.

Roccat Ryos MK FX RGB mechanical gaming keyboard

Solid build quality, very sturdy.

Media keys still far too separated from the FN key.

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.

German Ingenuity


I think this keyboard would be considered one of the best keyboards for gaming if it had better software. Power Grid really lacks compared to the potential of this amazing keyboard.

Looks great ; Really comfortable ; Awesome build quality for the hardware ; Every key a macro key with the software ; I love the lack of the caps lock. More gaming keyboards need it

Sometimes when I restart my system my keyboard will freeze up and I will have to unplug both USB cords and plug them back in. It does not happen frequently and never when I am in a game or program so I refuse to take off a egg

Disregard previous review


Disregard previous review. Can't edit the Cons. This keyboard doesn't have the extra windows key. It was another keyboard that I previously owned

Best keyboard ever purchased


Best keyboard ever purchased, and it better be for the price

Minus on star for the extra, useless windows key. Not sure why this is included in almost every keyboard these days. As if one windows key isn't annoying enough. And yes, I can disable the key, but it's still there

Exactly What I Was Looking For


This is my second keyboard from Roccat, and my first mechanical keyboard. I was a bit worried that I would hate it, as the last time I tested a mechanical gaming keyboard, the key switches felt 'grindy' and seemed to stick if not pressed right in the...

It's very sturdy and won't slide around on the desk ; Backlit keys are bright and easy to see ; Driver software is simple to use and the settings save quickly ; It's not a fingerprint magnet ; It has a really thick braided cord which feels very solid,...

LEDs can be a little TOO bright, though it is easily fixable in the software ; Less feedback from the linear switches could increase typing mistakes, but I knew that when I chose them ; No assigned key/button for toggling the windows key on and off. It...
