  • 1Description

The Ryos MK Pro Mechanical Backlit Gaming Keyboard from ROCCAT is a customizable mechanical keyboard and features CHERRY MX red key switches that last up to 50 million keystrokes. It features a customizable per-key illumination in two different modes (smart and manual), which lets you customize the look of the keys. The Ryos MK Pro is equipped with two ARM Cortex processors and 2MB of flash memory to store your configurations. This ensures that every macro and keystroke is executed in real time, for lag-free gaming. The keyboard also features a micro-dotted surface. It gives a sleek and glossy look, with no fingerprint left behind. The keyboard also features a finely braided cable for proper cable management. With the Ryos MK Pro you can assign a secondary key function to virtually every single key on the keyboard. Program the key in the easy-to-use driver, and hold down the modifier key.

Key Functioning
The red switch is linear, meaning it does not provide any keystroke feedback. Since the force required to operate to switch is below-average, the keys respond rapidly, precisely, and quietly that is suitable for people who want silent, effort-free typing. (Keystroke Feedback: None, Force Required: 45g)
Per-Key Illumination
It offers customizable per-key illumination in two convenient modes, Smart and Manual. This means you can add special effects to your keystrokes, configure your keyboard to highlight in-game and application key bindings, modifier keys, macro sequences and cool downs, system controls, and more. It comes with an included software development kit.
Key Configurations to Suit Every Game
Together with the Easy-Shift[+] and FN keys, you can assign a secondary key function to virtually every key on the keyboard, to suit every game and key configuration. You can store over 500 macros in the keyboard's flash memory.
Firing on All Cylinders with N-Key Rollover
The Ryos MK Pro features anti-ghosting with N-key rollover. This means that no matter how frenzied your intense gaming sessions get, your keyboard will always register every keystroke.
32-Bit ARM Cortex Processors
The Ryos MK Pro features two 32-bit ARM Cortex processors. Since the MCU is powerful, the keyboard's advanced features offer optimal performance. With 2MB of flash memory to store your configurations, your keyboard will execute all of your keystrokes and macros in real time, without any delay.

ROCCAT ROC-12-851-RD reviews

Ryos MK Pro Mechanical Backlit Gaming Keyboard (Red Key Switch) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from ROCCAT, a leading manufacturer of high end gaming keyboards? _________Review Summary__________ The German based ROCCAT gmbh was recently Founded in 2007 and since, has previously created a vast amount of gaming products varying from headsets, mice, keyboards and accessories. Until this generation, ROCCAT had previously limited themselves to membrane keyboards and considering their penchant for creating incredibly high quality products, I'm sure the competiton was thankful....Until now. With their top end mechanical keyboard (Cherry MX Blue Switches used for this review) the ROCCAT RYOS MK PRO, they simply lay the competition to rest on their first attempt, which isn't much of a surprise considering their past successes in other product lines. When comparing the ROCCAT RYOS MK PRO to other competitors releases such as the Razer Black Widow Chroma, the Coarsair K70 RGB, the Logitech Orion Spark or well....any other high end gaming keyboard on the market, they simply feel like cheap devices hiding behind imposter CHERRY MX Swicthes or in the case of the Corsair K70 RGB (Which does have CHERRY MX Switches), a product that was simply rushed to market with bleeding RGB integration. If you're looking for the best of the best in mechanical gaming keyboards, then look no further. The ROCCAT RYOS MK PRO is without a doubt in a class of it's own. I highly recommend passing on other companies cheaply made RGB offerings this generation and focus on what really matters in the long run...functionality, features and form factor. The ROCCAT RYOS MK PRO not only has those three F's covered ,but gives even more to their competition and their meager offerings by giving you nearly unlimited options and a rich award winning software suite to boot! Simply put, there aren't any other competitors in this class (high end), because the ROCCAT RYOS MK PRO stands alone. _______Build Quality and Aesthetics________ The build quality of the ROCCAT RYOS MK PRO is fantastic with it's sleek design and integrated wrist support (which, at first sight may appear bulky and cumbersome). Yet, after you actually sit behind one of these magnificent devices, you'll see their was no error in it's design. Typing or gaming experiences were immediately heightened on first attempt and due to this integrated wrist support allowed for longer play sessions and less wrist strain even after hours of concurrent use. The designs of the exterior are something to behold, with it's sleek midnight black appearance to it's futuristic shell, when you see this in person you will instantly dig it's cool factor, which stands out even in comparison to many of the other futuristic designs on the market because of the aformentioned integrated wrist support aside from other elements that I'll mention further below in this review. It's construction is incredibly durable and solid and should stand the test of time under normal gaming use (Gamer Rage not included but, may even withstand that! XD). Seriously this thing isn't fragile whatsoever and that can lay your mind at ease if you've ever had any issues with other manufacturers offerings. ROCCAT seriously builds quality merch and the RYOS MK PRO is no different. ________Included Customization and Software__________ The ROCCAT RYOS MK PRO is filled with customization options. From the available 500+ macros, ROCCAT TALK FX macro/illumination software suite, along with the ROCCAT POWER GRID software suite which was developed to enable the end user to utilize their smart devices to control a multitude of features on the keyboard (Which is awesome!). Below I'll outline what the ROCCAT TALK FX and ROCCAT POWER GRID software does to give you a better idea of what you're getting when you buy the ROCCAT RYOS MK PRO or other high end ROCCAT devices such as the ROCCAT TYON gaming mouse which also uses this rich software. TALK FX software suite: (Via your desktop) The Ryos MK Pro features ROCCAT's comprehensive driver suite that provides total control over your keyboard. Easily create an army of time-saving macros, adjust your illumination, set your key functions, and build up to five profiles that auto-launch with your favorite games and lots more. The ROCCAT driver also features R.A.D. (ROCCAT Achievements Display) for a host of useful stats on how you use your Ryos MK Pro, such as total keystrokes, most-used keys and much more. The Talk protocol opens up a whole new relationship between hardware. It takes events taking place on screen and translates them into exciting sensory effects on your hardware, heralding a new era in how gamers game. With Talk FX, the game is no longer something that takes place only on your screen; it's a fully immersive experience that's brought right into the heart of your desktop. Using Talk FX, you can have your keyboard light up only the relevant key bindings, so you can focus entirely on the fight. Have your mouse flash red or green when you're low on health or mana so you can't get caught out in the frenzy of battle. Have your keyboard show the direction of attack with glowing damage indicators so you know how to react to your opponent. The Talk FX SDK provides limitless opportunities for gamers to get the edge. Note: The customization is virtually limitless with the added SDK (Software Development Kit). If there's something that you don't see available via the 100% free app store, simply create it yourself. It's incredibly easy and fun as well. ROCCAT POWER GRID software suite: (Via smart phone or via your desktop) ROCCAT Power-Grid is an advanced and fully-customizable remote control for your PC. It lets you connect to, monitor, and control your PC and games directly from your smartphone and all without having to leave the action. Easily keep track of all your computer's vital stats, such as CPU, RAM, HDD usage and more. Change PC and game settings with speed and ease, such as audio controls and in-game macro sequences. Create your own custom Grids. Pick from a library of existing controls or design new ones yourself. Send your in game configuration grids to anyone you choose: teammates, guild mates, relatives or friends. Give any gaming order you can dream up with the simple touch of your smartphone's display. __________Other notable features___________ ROCCAT offers the highest of quality official CHERRY brand MX mechanical key switches in the folowing colors: Black, Blue, Brown and Red. Nothing else compares to official CHERRY brand mechanical key switches, once you go CHERRY, you never go back, trust me. I used CHERRY MX Blue's for this review and aside from them already being of highest quality, without them being implemented into the board properly (which other manufaturers don't always do) it can ruin the experience. I'm extremely happy to say that ROCCAT has fabricated each and every element of this board to utter perfection. Each stoke will be incredibly accurate and the response time unprecedented. You think incredibly accurate is an over statement? Think again, all 30+8 keys on this board have N-key roll over! What does this mean to you? N-key roll over is when a key board can interpret each actuation accurately. So if you press all 30+8 keys at once, your compuer will receive all 30+8 keys when they were actually pressed! Which no other keyboard can even come close to claiming. Generally speaking most mechanical key boards come with 4 key N-key rollover so, it's quite easy to see why this is an important feature and why my statement of this k/b being accurate was as accurate as this keyboard. 2 ARM Processors included: Owing to its whopping two 32-bit ARM Cortex processors, the Ryos MK Pro comes out swinging. Since the MCU is so powerful, not one of the keyboard's advanced features sacrifices an ounce of performance. And with 2MB of flash memory to store your configurations, your keyboard will execute all of your keystrokes and macros in real time, without any delay. Integrated Media Hub: Thanks to its integrated media hub, the Ryos MK Pro offers extreme gaming convenience. With two USB 2.0 ports and 1x audio in/1x out pass-through, you'll be able to plug in your headset and mouse and get gaming in an instant. And you won't have to worry about a mess of cables, since the Ryos MK Pro comes with a built-in cable channel underneath the keyboard. Smudge Proof: By design this keyboard is 100% smudge proof! Impossible you say? I guarantee not! From it's matte finish to it's glossy trim, not one iota of this keyboard will have a smudge on it ever. The materials chosen by ROCCAT across this entire keyboard are cutting edge, all the way down to the encasement! ______________In closing_______________ So as you can see, I took great care in creating this review, as I felt that it was important to inform the pc community to the best of my abilities that this is bar none the highest quality gaming keyboard on the market period. I have an extremely legnthly experience with high end pc peripherals and this is by far and out the most excellent purchase I've made. If you're looking to upgrade and your budget is limitless, there simply isn't any other option that will offer as much for your money. So, although a touch on the pricey side, I guarantee you that it will be worth every penny! So if you're on the fence as to which mechanical keyboard to buy now you know what Razer, Corsair, Ducky, Cooler Master, Logitech, MADCatz and the rest would be thinking if you asked them which one you should buy...They'd want to tell you to buy the ROCCAT RYOS MK PRO instead! New Yorkers: Make sure to buy it from B&H if you could, because we need to support local high end tech businesses that cater to our specific PC gaming needs here in New York. No I wasn't paid to say that, but felt it was important to note. Nice people, professional and knowledgeable. You simply can't beat that! Good job B&H, keep it up!
