Roccat Valo Keyboard Review

 

The German company releases an illuminated keyboard featuring an LCD display and 41 macro keys. Let's test it.

Illuminated keyboard ; Impressive customization ; Friendly and elegant software ; LCD display ; Color keys help memorize macro options

USB 1.1 port instead of 2.0 ; Terrible typing experience ; Pricey considering the user must have a separate keyboard for work

Roccat Valo Max Customization Gaming Keyboard Review

 

In the early 60s, a prime-time animated sitcom centered on a futuristic American family, portrayed a utopian world where all the manual labor is performed by automatons and all that is required of humans is to press a single button that initiates the...

Massive 2MB memory for storage ; 41 extra Macro keys ; 5 Profiles with 4 switchable layers each ; Built-in display status screen with in-game OSD support ; Adjustable intensity LED lighting for keys, Roccat logo and status display screen ; Caps lock...

High price ; High-pitched noise coming from keyboard backlight LEDs ; Live macro recording is not worth using ; Occasional missed keystroke inputs

On first glance, the Roccat Valo, with its 41 extra macro keys, 3 macro function keys, 4 macro layer switching keys and extra pill-sized light and volume control keys on top, looks very daunting. It is very feature rich and the high quality rubber...

Lots of Macro keys

 

I did not have any of the dropped keys, that other were reporting on earlier models. While you can not change the profile while in a game, you can change levels, while allows each key to have 4 settings. leaving 164 different macros available while in...

41 macro keys, 5 profiles and 4 "levels" per profile. Has on the fly recording of macro, and recoding state shows on the display. So macros can be set and changed while playing ; Keyboard has a smooth feel and while not mechanical, still has good...

Light up keys are barely visible, even on highest setting. (so poor I an knocking 2 eggs off) ; The replacement keys were sit slightly lower than the standard black Macro keys, but the the tool work sell in swapping them. No egg deduction for that,...
