This keyboard really caught my eye because of it’s sci-fi-esque design features. A compact “laptop” gaming keyboard, the Arvo has had its arrow keys removed to make it more compact. The numerical keypad area has been adapted for gaming use in lieu of the arrow keys, by switching into “gaming mode”. With an added five function keys, three of them being the “thumbster” keys in the middle front, these are all intelligently placed to be easily put to good use in most games.

PC Games Hardware gave the keyboard a promising review as far as stability and slip resistance goes, attributing this to a built-in metal plate that Roccat added for sturdyness. After a short hands-on test they also concluded that “the keystroke and pressure point of the Arvo were quite good and left a positive mark”.

Hoping to see a Nordic or Norwegian edition of this keyboard soon!
