The Bottom Line

Arvo is a small keyboard from Roccat but its great. some gamers thinks ist have to few keys,(97)Their is not so much extra junk on it but the keys it have delivers big time. The 5 macro keys works perfect all the time and they are easy to install and save. the 3 extra keys right below space is a great touch for gamers who like to use their thumbs some more. Arvo is great for both typing and gaming.

    I can assure u all that this keyboard can take several hits after unsuccessful attempts ingame. Being a raging gamer can be expensive if you dont have the proper gear for it, but this one certainly does its job. I also prefer to have the function keys close to everything else since it allows smaller hands to reach them all.
