Roccat Arvo

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi all!
I will be replacing my keyboard soon and I've been looking at Roccat Arvo. To those that have experience with it, is there any issues I should know about before buying? How is yours holding up? Also can you program the function keys f1 to f12 to act as say as media keys and a sleep key? Thanks in advance!

I don't know about that keyboard but from what I heard it sounds like Roccat have quality control issue (kinda like Razer). As for the keyboard it seems like most people here are into mechanical keyboards so unless it's a very well known rubber dome I don't think people would know too much about it frown.gif

Thanks or the reply! Yes it's been a while since I got back into upgrading my PC hardware and it does seem like mechanical keyboards are what's in nowadays. I might look into getting a mechanical keyboard instead. Thinking into getting either a corsair K90 or ducky shine 2. I might get a corsair K90 and see if I run into the issues most people are talking about. If I do then I will have it exchanged for a Shine 2.

Based from what I heard in general it sounds like Ducky Shine 2 is better than Corsair K90 hands down. So if you can afford it I'd just get Ducky Shine 2 tongue.gif
