ROCCAT ARVO Compact Gamer Keyboard Review

Others/Mice & Keyboards by stefan @ 2010-09-07

The ARVO from ROCCAT is a perfect keyboard for gamers on the go, because it is light and smaller thanks to its direction keys integrated into the Numeric Pad and it is also durable thanks to its robust metal base. The software application that comes with it allows us to set different functions, build macros or even disable some of the keys.

The ROCCAT ARVO keyboard comes in a medium sized cardboard box, with lots of descriptions and photos; on its frontal part we can see some of the product features, the product name along with the blue ROCCAT logo, a large photo of the product, some icons that tell us what awards this keyboard won in the past and the “Compatible with Windows 7” logo:
