ROCCAT Vulcan 100 Mechanical RGB Keyboard Review

Others/Mice & Keyboards by stefan @ 2019-03-21

We have used the keyboard to write several documents and run a few games; the new Titan switches have a similar feel to MX Brown and thanks to the low profile design and the 1.8mm actuation point, the Vulcan 100 can keep up even during intensive gaming sessions. The keyboard is not as silent as we would have wanted (for that you’d better go with a Cherry MX Silent variant or LP Speed), but during LAN parties this aspect is not that important.

Product Features, Specifications

Product Features:


New technologies


The Vulcan is the first keyboard to feature ROCCAT-developed Titan Switches. The switches, designed from the ground up, were built for gamers craving a key stroke that was swift and precise while still being tactile.


As well as a tactile and silent 1.8mm actuation point with a 3.6mm travel distance, the switches feature structural housing to reduce wobble while being pressed. They bring electrical contact bouncing to a minimum, allowing firmware to recognize input 20% faster. The key caps are also ultra-light – 50% lighter than standard – for that rapid response.


Built to last


An anodized aluminum plate reinforces the Vulcan’s structural integrity and protects against wear and tear.


The detachable palm rest and low profile keyboard design improve ergonomics, making it suitable for long periods of game time. Key caps are specially designed for easy maintenance. They match the spacing and surface area of traditional caps but feature a shortened height to make cleaning easy, complementing the Titan Switch’s dust-resistant housing perfectly.


AIMO Illumination


The Vulcan provides the best possible platform for the AIMO lighting engine.


Each switch features an individually configurable, long-life LED capable of displaying 16.8M colors in a variety of special effects. Transparent switch housing means the multicolor lighting shines impressively and is spread evenly from every key.


AIMO represents both a lighting engine and an eco-system at once. Its functionality grows based on the number of AIMO-enabled connected devices. It reacts organically based on your usage, presenting state-of-the-art illumination scenarios without the need for configuration.


Vulcan 100 AIMO


Per-key configurable AIMO illumination features in the mid-series Vulcan 100 AIMO, for brilliant and vivid lighting.


The integrated media wheel allows for quick and easy control over common video and audio settings, and an anodized aluminum top plate reinforces the keyboard and protects it from knocks.
