5 out of 5 eggsExactly What I Was Looking For

Pros: It's very sturdy and won't slide around on the desk.
Backlit keys are bright and easy to see.
Driver software is simple to use and the settings save quickly.
It's not a fingerprint magnet.
It has a really thick braided cord which feels very solid, just like the rest of the keyboard.
Cherry MX Red switches provide a smooth, springy feel to the keys that makes typing and gaming less stressful on the hands.
No caps lock key. It's replaced with the EasyShift key which is much more useful to me and minimizes caps mistakes.
Default LED settings in the driver software provides visual feedback when a key is pressed.
The thin plastic keyboard shield (actually part of the packaging) makes a very good general purpose cover for the keyboard when it's not in use, helping to keep dust out.

Cons: LEDs can be a little TOO bright, though it is easily fixable in the software.
Less feedback from the linear switches could increase typing mistakes, but I knew that when I chose them.
No assigned key/button for toggling the windows key on and off. It might be possible with the software, but I'm not sure.

Other Thoughts: This is my second keyboard from Roccat, and my first mechanical keyboard. I was a bit worried that I would hate it, as the last time I tested a mechanical gaming keyboard, the key switches felt 'grindy' and seemed to stick if not pressed right in the middle.

The switches in the Ryos are nothing like that. The resistance is consistent regardless of where on the key I press, and I don't feel any grindy feedback.

Overall this is the best keyboard I've had so far. Hopefully it will last a while.

4 out of 5 eggsFirst mechanical keyboard

Pros: I am absolutely in love with this mechanical keyboard, this being the fist one I've ever used. I decided to go with MX red because I hate the clicky sound that the blues make. The per key illumination is wonderful, and they're bright enough for me (although not super bright). Includes some thumb buttons that I think are cool but hardly use aside from using them as a shortcut to open the configuration application. Having mentioned that, the configuration application is easy to use and easy to navigate.

The macro five keys on the left hand side of the keyboard are a nice touch, and I find myself using them often (more about this in the cons).

Build quality is excellent, sturdy, and rigid. That special semi-gloss finish they talk about does not, to my surprise, appear to smudge - just like they said. The braided cord is very appealing. The inclusion of two USB ports on the side of the computer is great, and they've come in handy more than once.

Cons: I'm very much a nit-picker so I've come to find a lot of small flaws with this keyboard. First off, the reason I use the designated macro keys so much is because the keyboard lacks a designated volume rocker / volume up, down, mute keys. Thankfully it allows you to configure the macro keys to perform those functions, but that takes up 3 of the 5 keys.

While the configuration software is nice, it is a bit tedious to work through. If you want to light up a specific set of keys, you have to click on each individual key in the software and then select the checkbox for "On". I have it set so that when the volume is changed the keyboard indicates the volume level (a nice touch), though sometimes it just flat out doesn't work (it wont indicate the volume with the LEDs).

I personally think the wrist rest should be removable, or made out of a softer material than plastic. To circumvent the irritation on my wrists caused by this keyboard I've had to place a gel wrist rest over the keyboards wrist rest.

While the LED lit keys are very easy to see in my opinion, the keys are not easy to see if the LEDs are off. In addition to this complaint, the secondary functions for certain keys (e.g. !@#$ for 1234) are located underneath the primary functions for the keys, which is opposite for how most keyboard are. This is due to the fact that the LED for each key is located above the key switch, so in order to have the symbol illuminated properly they needed to have it located on the upper portion of the keycap. This of course means that the secondary functions are not properly lit by the LED and are therefore much dimmer and nearly impossible to see, even at full brightness.

The keyswitches themselves took some time to get used to, but I found that I did not like the distance it took to bottom out the key (that's just how I type). It also made an annoying plastic-on-plastic "clack" that I found unpleasant. I opted to buy some soft rubber o-rings to lessen the bottoming out depth and to reduce the noise that bottoming out the keys makes. My last complaint, the thing that is driving me bonkers right now, is that some keys have a noticeable ringing "springy" noise when it pops back up after being pressed. The keys that are notorious for this are the larger keys such as backspace and shift, but all of the keys do it to some extent. I think it has to do with the MX Cherry keyswitch.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent keyboard

Pros: Definitely everything I was looking for. As I keep my room rather dark, with only the two desktop monitors and one laptop monitor with any illumination, it helps to have the lighted keys. The function keys are useful, not the best, but when combined with the macro feature, definitely handy.

Cons: Among the things that caught me were that the LEDs were only solid blue, I would have preferred red in general, but the timer to disable the lighting makes up for that in a big way. It was nice to get a set of hotkeys preprogrammed, but you can add macros for most thing, though it did catch me as odd (having switched from the a microsoft pro keyboard on my desktop to this ROCCAT) that there was not an option to set it to open specific files, and I am sure I could have on the macros, just strikes me as odd, but again, this is designed to a gaming keyboard, and would be excellent there. Other than that, it's not ergonomic, but I knew that upon getting it, though it would be nice for someone to make an illuminated, ergonomic keyboard (not just some keyboard that says 'ergonomic' like many do, but one that is conveniently designed for the human hand and typing, again, no points off for that here, just saying).

Other Thoughts: Overall, I would say an 9/10, only one color LED and rather limited preset of OS controls for the keyboard programmed it. Functionally perfect and the bells and whistles are definitely worth it. Gave it 5 stars on new Egg despite an 9/10 as my grips were all small gripes, petty you might say, and that would be accurate.

3 out of 5 eggsMeh

Pros: Lighting effects are neat. The key-switches are as expected from Cherry. The anti-finger print texture does well. Thumb keys that are located below the space bar are very nice for gaming.

Cons: Failed after about a month of use, and for 170$ I have to spend the extra dollar to ship it back to them for a replacement. The included program used to bind key's and lighting effects is buggy and difficult to use. Heavy for a keyboard. If you use your keyboard on your lap its awkward to use due to non-removable wrist rest. While using the keyboard in my systems bio's it would also glitch quite often making it very difficult to change pro-files for my bio's.

Other Thoughts: While it worked, it did as advertised. Though for this price point its a shame I have to pay to ship it back to Roccat for me to get a working keyboard. With that being said I doubt I will ever buy from then again. Though more then likely you won't have any issues with this keyboard this is just my personal opinion.

5 out of 5 eggsBest of the Best

Pros: This board is amazingly comfortable to type on. It is fun to customize with the seemingly infinite macros, the different key illuminations, and all the little extras they throw into their software. I consider this KEYBOARD one of the Best of the Best. You will be hard pressed to beat it.

Cons: Cant change colors. For a keyboard that costs this much you think that would just be standard, guess not. And then there is the price, it sure took a chunk out of my wallet.

4 out of 5 eggsNew Roccat Fanboi!

Pros: Design - Keyboard looks fantastic and has blue LEDs and is extremely sturdy and heavy (does not slide easy)

Layout - Nice layout with 5 macro keys within easy reach of my pinky. Macro Thumb keys right below the spacebar.

Programmability - Each key can have multiple macros due to the easy shift key. Some have expressed the software is confusing and difficult to figure out, I didn't have an issue.
Keys - Mechanical keys are solid and easy to push. I got the MX Red Cherry and probably would have liked the MX Black keys since I have a heavy hand.

Cons: Price of course
This is a large keyboard so make sure you have enough room.
palm rest does not detach and is not flat on desk. I knew this when I bought it and doesn't bother me one bit after I have been using it.
USB/Headset connectors are at angles off the keyboard. I though this would bother me however I have a Razer Tartarus plug in and the connector has not interfered with my mouse hand however; they should be at the back imo.

Other Thoughts: I was looking for a replacement for my aging Razer Lycosa and since Razer has decided to stick us with only green LEDS they are no longer an option, it was time to shop around. The Roccat's design caught my eye and I am happy with my purchase so far although I think I should have bought the MX Black Cherry board.

5 out of 5 eggsOutstanding

Pros: Types great and feels nice. Never had such an outstanding keyboard in my life. I am sold on the solid build of this device and any other device that Roccat makes. If they keep this up then they will have many more sales in the future to not only me but everyone that I can convince to buy there product. It is a little High in price, but when you feel the keys and know the excitement of the customization features. Once you have made change after change and played with the options for hours. Once you have experienced the quality; Then you will understand the power of German engineering. It may sound silly but it is true. FLYNN LIVES!!

Cons: It isn't as plug and play as I had expected, and the instructions don't really tell you how to get up and going, and you have to figure things out on your own. Things like finding the customization program. I just happen to stumble across it myself. The instruction card is focused more on how to use the keyboard and not enough was added to help set it up and learn the expanded features. That being said, it is still the best keyboard I have ever had the pleasure to use and/or own.

Other Thoughts: FLYNN LIVES!!
