This review is from: ROCCAT Ryos MK Pro Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with Per-Key Illumination - Brown Cherry MX Key Switch (ROC-12-851-BN)

Pros: Build quality is solid. Design is well thought out. Liked the cable channels, layout, etc.

Cons: DRIVERS. NOT COMPATIBLE with Windows 8.1
-They state it will work with Windows 8 on their site, which it does, however there are numerous issues with 8.1. Drivers would not even load and, although keyboard will function, no lighting, macro or special function keys work. Reached out to Roccat customer service, they responded, but just asked if it was plugged in. :-)

Other Thoughts: Not worth the money - Should have just gone with what I know.

1 out of 5 eggsDo NOT risk it.

This review is from: ROCCAT Ryos MK Pro Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with Per-Key Illumination - Brown Cherry MX Key Switch (ROC-12-851-BN)

Pros: Sturdy build, MX Cherry Switches, software, comfort.

Cons: Horrible Customer service (Roccat), faulty LEDs.

Other Thoughts: I bought this keyboard back in July. By October, the first LED went out. More started to fail. I've contacted Roccat and they have not even answered me, let alone done anything about it. I now have a total of 36 LEDs that have completely failed (actually two of those are weak and about to fail). Many other people are having this issue and even when they get replacement keyboards the same thing happens.
I would NOT recommend spending your money on this keyboard. It's pricey and the risk of having faulty LEDs is too great. Save yourself the headache!

2 out of 5 eggsNot so Great

This review is from: ROCCAT Ryos MK Pro Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with Per-Key Illumination - Brown Cherry MX Key Switch (ROC-12-851-BN)

Pros: Lots of keys
Macro Capability
Good layout
Fairly good key response
LEDs help locate keys in dim light

Cons: Tactile feedback not truly positive like the old IBMs
Shift symbols are Under not Over the numbers. Annoying when looking for that rarely used '&' or '^'
Lights go out

Other Thoughts: This unit replaced an ancient IBM keyboard. I loved the tactile feedback and precise response on the IBM, but got annoyed at the lack of extra keys like context menu, function, etc. Also the clicking from the IBM gets on my nerves.

I had this unit a little over a month and was fairly pleased with it. I do a lot of keying in my work and my own time and wanted the tactile response I got from the old IBM keyboard without the loud clicks.
It is not as quiet as I hoped and the tactile is not as precise as the IBMs.

That would have been ok - with the other positives, but I began to lose LEDs from the keys. About 30% of them are now gone.

Not so good

3 out of 5 eggsBig and Heavy

This review is from: ROCCAT Ryos MK Pro Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with Per-Key Illumination - Brown Cherry MX Key Switch (ROC-12-851-BN)

Pros: Does not move around - heavy with good rubber feet

Cons: Software setup is NOT intuitive. I am a software developer and this thing is poorly documented.

The KEYS are nearly illegible when not lit because the print is GRAY on BLACK. Just stupid.

Got the BROWN key switches which are supposed to be NOT clicky, but they click like crazy.

USB cable that connects to PC IS TERRIBLE. It is WAY TOO THICK AND STIFF, way too long. Clutters up desk. Impossible to hide.

REQUIRES TWO USB SLOTS for power.

USB cable has TWO 3.5mm connectors, one for MIC and one for AUDIO, but they are SEPARATE. My laptop only has a SINGLE 3.5mm connector so I can connect EITHER the Mic or the Audio but NOT BOTH? Apparently does not work with a headset that has a single 3.5mm connector! I just ordered a Y cable hoping that will fix it. Having separate Mic and Audio seems just wrong. Normal earbuds with MIC do not work. Needs a SINGLE connector like a phone.

Keys stick up TOO FAR above plane of keyboard. No idea why they do this.

There is an extra column of M buttons on the left and my fingers hit those accidentally all the time when going for left shift.

The setup sheet is all BLACK and nearly illegible.

Smart Phone control app DOES NOT WORK - won't connect to PC.

Other Thoughts: Maybe I will figure out how to love this, but so far, not wonderful.

5 out of 5 eggsGerman Engineering at its Finest

This review is from: ROCCAT Ryos MK Pro Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with Per-Key Illumination - Brown Cherry MX Key Switch (ROC-12-851-BN)

Pros: I was looking to get a new keyboard for my new build. I have always been a logitech fanboy. Every G series keyboard and mouse I've owned has performed flawlessly. But logitech doesn't really offer a "High End" mechanical keyboard.I did my research and looked around and i found this beauty. This is German Engineering at its finest. I got the Cherry MX Brown switches and the tactile response and feel is amazing for gaming or everyday applications/typing. Big heavy construction, feels solid. Heavy braided cables. Crazy software that blows the G-series out of the water. Cool app for smartphones to make a LED light show with your keyboard. Just features, features, features form top to bottom. Everything was thought of. I have onl;y had this keyboard for about a week so i cannot comment on the longvity of this board but by the way it was build and constructed i think it will be just fine.

Cons: My only con is that there is no LCD screen that displays the system information to gaming information that you can look at while in applications or games. Not too big of a deal for me so thats why i didn't knock an egg off. But for some i know its kind of a big deal.
Also i have my mac book laptop setup on my workstation for school and if i plug in the keyboard for it, the software does not support mac OS. Cant change lighting of the keys etc. It states windows OS compatible only but just a warning.

1 out of 5 eggsROCCAT Customer Service *****!

This review is from: ROCCAT Ryos MK Pro Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with Per-Key Illumination - Brown Cherry MX Key Switch (ROC-12-851-BN)

Pros: Very nice keyboard. Key presses are perfect.

Cons: If you have a problem with the keyboard, customer service will ignore you. I managed to get an RMA because one of the keys quit working. They have had the return almost a month and I STILL have not received the replacement. Furthermore, they have altogether quit responding to my email inquiries! Last ROCCAT product I ever buy!

5 out of 5 eggsRocat Ryos MK Pro - Cherry Brown switches

This review is from: ROCCAT Ryos MK Pro Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with Per-Key Illumination - Brown Cherry MX Key Switch (ROC-12-851-BN)

Pros: -Lighted keys
-Mechanical keys
-The entire keyboard can be reprogrammed for any function.
-NO need for extra software. Driver is only needed to program the keyboard. Once you do that, it all runs from the built-in memory on the keyboard. Love it.
-Media keys, calculator key. Most people probably don't realize how useful a calculator key is.
-Big pads prevent sliding.

Cons: -No instructions.
-Pricey. If it's on sale, buy it ASAP.

Other Thoughts: Ended up getting Cherry MX Browns since no one had Cherry MX Reds when I got mine. Still good nonetheless.

Minor gripe with Cherry MX switch keys. They should really made a stepped Caps-lock key. I kept hitting the Caps-Lock key when gaming. It annoyed me enough to go looking for a stepped Caps-Lock key to replace the one that comes with this keyboard.

Some people don't like the integrated palm/wrist rest. I love it. I've used keyboards with large integrated wrist rests and found the slope and size perfect for my hands.

If you have a Roccat mouse, you can really take advantage of the features.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Keyboard

This review is from: ROCCAT Ryos MK Pro Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with Per-Key Illumination - Brown Cherry MX Key Switch (ROC-12-851-BN)

Pros: good response, mechanical, sturdy and comfortable to use for an extended basis. Lots of options for backlight controls.

Cons: a touch difficult to find some of the configuration options
the brown version is slightly more "mushy" that I would expect from a mechanical

Other Thoughts: Overall an excellent keyboard and one I would purchase again. It does take some time to find some of the configuration if you want to change the default lighting of the keys. I like the firmness of the blue cherry switches but was looking for something quieter. The trade off is it is slightly more mushy than some mechanicals but this is a very minor issue
