Summary: When it comes to testing a keyboard, there really isn’t much more you can do other than use it, and I did. I used this keyboard constantly over the last month and after I figured out how to setup LED macros on one tab and then assign them to a macro key on the other tab, I was in business.
Pros: Easy to clean, Amazing hotkey and macro setup options, Simple, clean and easy to use software, Won’t slide around on your desk, Can be used as a weapon as it is so heavy, Lighting effects may be gimmicky, but they are very cool
Cons: Loud keypresses, A fair bit more expensive that the MK Glow for extra lighting/switch options.
Summary: The Ryos MK Pro is not bad by any means, but it has a few notable drawbacks and is too expensive for what it offers. We like the comfy keys and wrist rest, slick lighting and comprehensive software, but the everyday typing experience isn't the best.
Pros: Comfortable keys and wrist rest; Robust software; Attractive lighting
Cons: Sticky typing; Difficult to record macros; Too expensive for what it does
Summary: The gaming mechanical keyboard game is heating up with more PC peripheral makers looking to cash in on the ever-growing gaming scene. Mechanical keyboards are great because not only do they last longer, depending on your choice; they are also multi-purpose, suitable for both work and gaming.
Pros: High level of customisation, Choice of four different Cherry MX keys
Cons: Software takes a bit of getting used to at first
ROCCAT Ryos MK Pro Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Capsule Review
1 May 2014
Conclusion: ROCCAT markets the Ryos MK Pro as the "most advanced, most customizable mechanical keyboard ever". This certainly may not be true anymore, as there are a number of more advanced products available from other manufacturers, but the Ryos MK Pro was released nearly a year ago and remains an excellent...
Conclusion: The Ryos MK Pro is Roccat's first mechanical gaming keyboard, and this top-of-the-line model is packed with features.
Pros: Mechanical keyboard. Has choice of four key switch styles. Individually backlit keys. Smudge-reducing finish. Dozens of programmable options. Customizable lighting modes. Built-in USB and audio pass-through connections.
Cons: Blue is your only choice for backlight. Built-in wrist rest is bulky, can't be removed.
Summary: The Ryos MK Pro has just about everything we look for in the best gaming keyboards. NKRO, mechanical switches and customizable backlighting are high-end features that outweigh the short warranty and missing online forum.
Pros: A good deal of customization and powerful features set this keyboard apart from the others.
Cons: This keyboard is backed by lackluster support and a weak warranty.
ROCCAT Ryos MK Pro Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review
23 March 2014
Summary: To sum it up, the ROCCAT Ryos MK Pro is one of the more full-featured mechanical keyboards out in the market. With solid construction and pretty extensive lighting customization, the Ryos MK Pro presents itself as a pretty good choice.
Excerpt: ROCCAT is a name that hasn’t been around very long but is gaining popularity very quickly due to their extensive selection of feature-packed peripherals. I reviewed their excellent Ryos MK Glow mechanical keyboard not too long ago and I loved it.
Summary: We'll keep this simple -- if you don't need a built-in LCD panel and can afford the asking price, we have absolutely no hesitation in recommending the Roccat Ryos MK Pro. This is one of the finest and most feature rich gaming planks on the market, and we're particularly impressed with the amount of...
