Introduction Pure Overclock just recently had the pleasure of reviewing Cougar’s flagship 700K Mechanical gaming keyboard. This keyboard received many accolades along with some of the highest awards from the industry for its beautiful aluminum construction and customized software. While the price tag is on the high side for the 700K model, some can justify spending that kind of money. We all know the term, “you get what you pay for,” but some of us are simply looking for the best bang for your buck. Plus, with the abundance of today’s gamers making comments like, “we don’t always use all the features” that are available on those more expensive keyboards, folks are looking for alternatives. All is not lost. With Cougar’s well received launch of its first mechanical gaming keyboards, they have set out to really expand in this arena. They came up with a wide range of options from the very affordable to the very expensive. Cougar likely aiming to reach a wider audience and we don’t blame them for doing so. In our hands today, we have their newly developed 500K and 600K gaming keyboards, both of which have been designed for gamers, typists and priced for your average joe who can’t quite justify the 700K’s price tag. So today, we get to put both these very affordable keyboards to the test to see how they match up with today’s competition and Cougar’s own 700K model.

However, when it comes to keyboards, they have been a bit behind the times. After taking a year in development, they are ready to introduce gamers to the Ryos Series. We have the opportunity to review the Ryos MK Glow. It features a built-in palm rest, individual LED keys, an anti-smudge surface, fully capable macros and individual key remapping. When it comes to their first Mechanical keyboard, ROCCAT makes a bold statement, “The most advanced, most customizable mechanical keyboard ever – NOBODY comes close! Introducing the illuminated ROCCAT™ Ryos MK Glow mechanical gaming keyboard. With an eye-watering number of configuration options and high-quality CHERRY MX key switches, you can break out – and unleash the gaming beast within.” We have to ask ourselves, Is ROCCAT being overly confident with their first keyboard? There’s plenty of other manufacturers who have been releasing Mechanical keyboards for years and haven’t claimed to be the most customizable. If their statement is true, will there be room for improvement? These are just a few questions that come to mind after such a bold statement. Before we find out if the Ryos MK Glow will live up to their statement, let’s find out a bit more about the company. Founded in 2007, ROCCAT™ develops high qu...
