Roccat’s Vulcan mechanical keyboard is one to watch

One of the surprise highlights of this year’s Computex has been, of all things, a keyboard – and a Roccat one at that. It’s not that the German firm makes a load of bad kit – the Khan Pro headset and Leadr mouse are both recent successes – but they’ve also never really broken through to becoming first-rate purveyors of must-have peripherals. The Vulcan, however,…

Roccat’s Titan switches suggest new mechanical keyboards are on the way

After years of championing the membrane keyboard, Roccat look as though they're finally preparing to jump headfirst into the world of proper, honest-to-goodness mechanical keyboards thanks to their newly-announced partnership with leading switch manufacturer TTC. Officially know as the Titan Switch (or the Titan Switch Tactile to give its full mouthful of a name), these will be the first mechanical switches Roccat have designed in-house, and we'll see…

Roccat Khan Aimo review: Better for bass lovers

The Khan Aimo is the final piece of Roccat's smart RGB peripheral puzzle - or at least it is so far, anyway. Like their Horde Aimo keyboard and Kone Aimo mouse before it, the Khan Aimo uses Roccat's intelligent RGB system to create a synchronised light show that adapts to the way you work and play, rippling and fading with every click, tap and pause…

Roccat Horde Aimo review: Where membrane meets mechanical

'Membranical' is a horrible word and a crime against the English language, but those in keyboard circles will probably agree (albeit reluctantly) that it's a fitting description for Roccat's new keyboard, the Horde Aimo. If that last word sounds familiar, it's probably because you're remembering Roccat's Kone Aimo mouse, which belongs to the same family of RGB peripherals. The Horde Aimo is, thankfully, a bit…

Roccat Khan Pro review: A small wonder?

As gaming headsets go, the Roccat Khan Pro is delightfully diddly. Normally when I put on a headset, it feels like I'm encasing my head in something akin to a bike helmet, so large and cumbersome are their various ear cups that they'd probably provide adequate protection in the event of a roadside collision. That might be because of my apparently pea-sized head, judging by…

Feature: The Kone of shame, this is not

Roccat Kone Aimo review: A jumbo gaming mouse with oodles of flexibility

When I started my first tech job, the mouse waiting for me on my desk was utterly enormous. Left there by its previous owner, it was the Steelseries World of Warcraft Cataclysm Gaming Mouse - an absolutely beastly bit of plastic that looked like it had just come out of a hot oven. It was wholly unsuited to general office work and made my hand…

Turn Your Phone Into A PC Peripheral With Power-Grid

Hardware makers Roccat were so excited about this that they ran a countdown with the sarcastic slogan: "Isn't PC Gaming Dead?" Now in my view, only nuclear war or Waitrose's Butter Chicken deserve a numerically decreasing build-up. Roccat's reveal can't match the horror of an atom being split, or the happy ping of a microwave delivering mock Indian tastiness, but it is neat: Power-Grid turns…
