It is not just a keyboard. It is also not just a keyboard for gamers. It is in fact the ultimate choice of any gamer who wants to play with the best tool available. Don’t settle for anything less! Besides incorporating the essential gear for any gamer, this tool will delight you with its diversity. Featuring a TurboCore Processor Unit and an unprecedented 2MB of memory this keyboard can store 5 profiles internally. Each profile contains 4 layers and each layer can store 41 macros plus timing information. Want to create a new macro? Don’t want to leave the game? The ROCCAT™ Valo allows you to record and execute new macros within the game via the Macro Record/Pause/Kill buttons. Simply press the Macro Record button, type in your macro and press the Record button again. The macro is instantly available within your game. And in order to remember where your important and frequently used macros are stored, you can easily change the color of these keys with the colored spare keys provided. The time of accidentally hitting the wrong keys is now over. 3-stage night illumination clearly shows the key letterings wherever you are and whatever lighting conditions prevail. Switch off the background illumination during the daytime to save LED life and power. The twin-line LCD always provides you with vital information on your computer’s status. You can even customize the LCD with the optional Software Development Kit and display game-specific information.

Terrible Software

They keyboard itself feels quite nice to use, but that really is it in so far as positives for this thing.

The backlighting is so weak its nearly not visible, and doesnt get any brighter, despite what setting you put it on. The keyboard emits a terrible whine when the backlight is on. This is considered "normal" by Roccat and down to certain parts they use.
The Microphone/Line inputs dont work and the keyboard misses keystrokes if you dare to use the volume or media keys. Also there is a one second delay after you press a macro key!
This was tested on W7 with the latest firmware etc and there are 100's of people with the same issues.
If Roccat sort the software out they would have a nice product on their hands. As it stands, avoid.

waste

Just purchased this and its dreadful, infact it doesn't work at all and when it does work it misses keystrokes i would warn anyone on buying this.

This message was typed with windows onscreen keyboard - that's how bad it is, i will be sending mine back.

not great

This keyboard has the concept and the looks, it's very comfortable to use and has enough macro keys to keep even the most avid MMO player happy. The bad points are that the LCD display is very glitchy, it tends to get stuck on certain modes. Sometimes it just shows wierd characters like wingdings instead of what it's supposed to. Also there is a major bug with it, typing can become almost impossible. For some reason it misses keystrokes if you type faster than 1 letter per second. I'm not exagerating there either. I got in-touch with Roccat and their reply was that it is a problem that alot of people are having. Shame really cos it looks great, feels great and has the potential to be a great gaming keyboard if they'd just iron out the glitches.

BEST EVER KEYBOARD

I was seriously thinking about this keyboard but didnt want to part with my money till I knew it was worth it. After reading about 3 end user gaming mags and it coming top in all surreys against razer, logitech and microsoft in all i though it was time to buy! WOW The stylish and sleek design in nice packaging was perfect first impression. The macro keys and everything about the performance is top nothc. You can tell alot of thought has gone into the keyboard and it should make it worth while becuase my gaming has been seemless since purchase :) an all round outstanding buy!
