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 whether it needs it or not ;-) or when they start to stick from accumulated crud. Small form factor fits on top of a 14" ID drawer. Recommended.
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.
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. The small size makes it very easy to fit on pretty well any keyboard tray without issue. The software however, does leave a bit to be desired.....but not much. You get 5 macros keys, 2 of which are controlled by the "Mode" switch.
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.
Summary: 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 some trouble setting up the macro driver, but Roccat's customer support is very helpful and prompt. The keys feel great and very responsive. I absolutely love this keyboard.
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 reason I got this keyboard was for the size. It was the only "gaming" keyboard I could find that didn't take up the whole desk. There is nothing worse than a huge, clunky keyboar...
Summary: After using this keyboard for a few days now it has really grown me. The quality of the product is out standing, for just £30 you really get what you pay for. A sturdy, attractive compact gaming keyboard that registers all of your key strokes without fail every time. As a League of Legends player key strokes mean everything. It is also very comfortable to use and I would highly recommend this to anyone who has a small budget and a love for video games.
Summary: I've been a lover of Roccat for years and I needed a replacement for my somewhat humungous Logitech Wave so when I saw this for 35 quid I snapped it up and it's the perfect size, weight and the keys make just the right amount of "click". Highly recommend this to anyone.
Summary: Fast delivery, and in mint condition! They keyboard is very pretty, easy to use, comfortable, and sleek. A compact keyboard it is, no restrictions from your everyday use, and looks VERY sexy when the lights are off. You won't regret getting this.
