Had this for years

Stephen F., Newegg
10 December 2014
  • Pros: I have had this for many years, since before they were available directly in the US--ordered it from England. I don't do much gaming, but it has held up well for normal use and with free games online. The keys pop off fairly easily for when you really need to do a thorough cleaning (once a decade...
  • Cons: Boring. Like an LED bulb, it lasts so long you want to get something new just to make life interesting. Could use a few more programmable keys. Perhaps make some of the F keys programmable or a second button like the [MODE] switch to activate alternate keys on the number pad.

the keyboard survived the trip...

Spencer D., Newegg
18 February 2014
  • Summary: Took forever to arrive, sat in post office for 4 days, but that was due to weather, so can't complain. The packaging was HORRENDOUS. it was shipped straight off the shelf, the package looked like it went through multiple car wrecks, and was taped to oblivion. I'm surprised the keyboard is unscathed.
  • Pros: Is pretty much exactly what I expected. I bought this for my SO, because she has tiny hands, and was not disappointed. nothing really misleading about the macro keys, except 2 of them are required to be toggled on, but that is non-issue. so far, it works great. If it keeps working like this, I'd ...
  • Cons: No cons for the product

Decent for general use

Sterling S., Newegg
26 January 2014
  • Pros: - For a compact keyboard the layout is not bad - Shortcut keys are well placed and easy to customize - software is quick and responsive
  • Cons: - Horrible ghosting. Can't press three common keys at once - I thought I could handle a compact keyboard but the transition was too rough

Solid Starter Keyboard

Devon H., Newegg
19 November 2013
  • Summary: In hindsight, while gaming by monitor light...i wish i would have raised the extra money for a fully lit gaming keyboard with mechanical keys...but live and learn.
  • Pros: Metal housing with a nice finish. The small form factor integrating the arrow keys into num pad is great and gives a nice portable feel to the keyboard.
  • Cons: I dropped an egg more becasue I was expecting a little more from the key press feel. It feels akin to an old commodore 64 keyboard (ok not that bad but the keys are those loose standard ones that kind of wiggle when you type so it sounds loose)

Very nice.

Douglas M., Newegg
10 August 2013
  • Summary: Small and easy to carry to lan parties, but I'm kinda picky about how "loud" my keyboards are. This is not nearly as loud as mechanical keyboards can be, but I do prefer something more quiet. Overall I like it very much.
  • Pros: Compact size and great looks. It can be hard to find a good quality keyboard that doesn't take up my hole desk.
  • Cons: Having to use the mode button for arrow keys vs numpad can be a little odd, but I knew that before I bought it.

User Review

Aaron T., Newegg
9 February 2013
  • Summary: I usually don't review keyboards at all unless they're just utter garbage. This is far from the case with the Roccat Arvo. I've found using this keyboard to be extremely enjoyable to use. It's quite comfortable as well.
  • Pros: Compact size, macro support
  • Cons: It doesn't correct spelling mistakes before I make them. The software crashes in Windows 8 when trying to save profile settings.

Where's my CD?

Anthony C., Newegg
15 August 2012
  • Summary: If you need a really great gaming keyboard but space is at a premium, jump on this thing. You won't be sorry.
  • Pros: I've had a multitude of gaming keyboards but I needed something for a sliding keyboard shelf and still have room for a mouse pad. Compact is an understatement when referring to this board. But small as it is, it actually has the best feeling keys I've played with. The thumb macros are also nice, ...
  • Cons: It is supposed to come with a software and driver CD but mine did not come with it. Wouldn't be a big deal but when you download it from the website it is in a .RAR format and is kind of a pain to open. Minus a star for not coming with the proper materials.

Excellent keyboard!

Jeff B., Newegg
16 July 2012
  • Pros: Nice to see that ROCCAT is now selling their products in the US market. I've actually had mine for 2 years, but had to use a company in Europe to get it. The price was a bit ridiculous then compared to what it is here. Anyway, the keyboard is very functional and very small. In fact. the whole rea...

Nice feedback on the keys even for a membrane keyboard

Ben Hogben, Amazon
15 March 2015
  • Summary: Whereas I agree that it is not worth £60, it is definitely worth £40. Nice feedback on the keys even for a membrane keyboard. As a heavy keyboard user, using it for about 6-7 hours a day I can tell you that it is extremely easy to type quickly with.
