Roccat Ryos TKL Pro Review

Up Close

Here at OC3D we've loved the Roccat packaging since its inception and we're always relieved to see that the 'if it's not broke, don't fit it' ethos that permeates their product range continues with their packaging. Get it right first time, and then you don't need to adjust it later on. It's clear, concise and emphasises all the features that you need to know.

Inside the outer sleeve is another box that contains the Ryos TKL Pro itself. For those of you obsessed with keeping your keyboard clean there is a form-fitting dust cover too, always useful. 

The TKL Pro itself is diminutive thanks to the removal of the number pad and associated keys. Surrounding those keys is what Roccat call a "micro dot surface" which allows them to use the glossy look that is so in vogue, without compromising those looks with smudged fingerprints.

The underside follows a common theme amongst Roccat keyboards, namely providing many routing options for the cable. This is extremely handy and anyone who has been stuck with a cable either the wrong side of their keyboard, or sticking out the back getting in the way of the monitor, will appreciate it.

Below the space bar are the Thumbster keys, three dedicated macro buttons that are readily to hand at all times without getting in the way of your typing.

The keyboard is, despite its relative lack of width, quite high and chunky. The wrist rest goes some way to alleviating this, but it's by no means a sleek and low design. 

Lastly the cable with an excellent braid which is up to the usual high Roccat standards.
