Software and Lighting

The Roccat software should be familiar to anyone who has used a Roccat product before. Everything is well laid out and not hidden behind any cryptic labels. Customisation and user control are the watchwords, with almost everything able to be tweaked to your liking. It might be a small thing but we like the key screensaver which cycles through various patterns when you're AFK for a time. The ability to reset everything to the defaults is a nice touch as it frees you to play without fear of knackering things.

Customisation would be nothing without the ability to create macros and adjust the lighting to your preference. The macro editor doesn't record mouse positioning like some, but it's easy to use and assign, and the software comes complete with plenty of inbuilt ones for the most popular titles.

Lighting is something that requires a video to demonstrate fully, but the short version is that you can do almost anything you can think of. Admittedly you're stuck with the Roccat Ice Blue as your colour, but otherwise there is per-key lighting, key light delays so that the key fades after a certain period of time - useful for ability cooldown - and even a Ripple FX feature which turns each key press into a virtual drop of water. Or you can just have all the lights on, or even off.

The software ends with something common to Roccat, namely stat tracking and pretty pointless trophies. 

The illumination is, as we said above, something that you need to see in action to fully appreciate but at the very least you can see how crisp and clear the lighting is. Even if the number key shift options are oddly below the number rather than above it.
