Roccat's first foray into the mechanical keyboard space is a good one, offering up a keyboard that's not only comfortable to use, but also offers enough customization for serious gamers. TweakTown finds the Ryos MK "a real pleasure to use" and PC Mag says "in actual gameplay, the keyboard functioned flawlessly." Roccat included customization software to help tweak your Ryos, and Computer Shopper says it "isn't terribly complicated, but it is very feature-rich and flexible." The basic model Ryos is a solid, affordable option for gamers looking for their first mechanical keyboard. Those with more mechanical keyboard experience, however, might prefer the Pro model -- though the price makes it just a little bit tougher to swallow.

The Ryos MK Pro is Roccat's first mechanical gaming keyboard, and this top-of-the-line model is packed with features.

There are a lot of great keyboards out there, and the granular control over the blink interval on a keyboard’s home row isn’t quite the selling point Roccat makes it out to be.

I like the Ryos MK Pro. It's tough, has excellent build quality and you can customise it however you want. Whether it's worth the premium price (you can get one for around USD$170) they're asking for one of these is another matter.

As a beginner, or an enthusiast, you cannot deny that this is the most feature rich design on the market today, and if you are going to spend large for a mechanical keyboard, it is really hard to consider other options when the Ryos MK Pro so heavily dominates the game currently.

Roccat’s top-tier mechanical keyboard comes in a variety of Cherry MX flavors and delivers stellar control over its backlighting and macros. It’s great for both gaming and general use, but it’s awfully expensive unless you'll leverage every last extra.

The Ryos MK Pro has just about everything we look for in the best gaming keyboards. N-key rollover, mechanical switches and customizable backlighting are high-end features that outweigh the short warranty and missing online forum.

The ROCCAT Ryos MK Pro Mechanical Gaming Keyboard is an awesome bit of kit and would be a worthy addition to anyone’s gaming arsenal. The level of customization and functionality are outweighed by the high price.

We only had time to tap out a few brief lines during our demonstration, but we could tell the Cherry Black switches used in the demo unit were firm yet responsive, with a smooth action and plenty of bounce.

The Roccat Ryos MK Pro is the most complete out of the three and, more importantly, gives you the choice between the different switches

Ergonomically we quite liked the design, especially the three macro buttons under the spacebar, which are eminently more usable than the usual positioning to the side of the main keyboard area.
