A Closer Look
The Magma keyboard looks quite futuristic with its intelligent lighting. Basically it creates a state-of-the-art aesthetic which makes the keyboard look cool! There are five separate zones, powered by ten discrete LEDs that create some really cool backlighting effects which display through the semi-transparent top plate. In fact there are 16.8 million combinations apparently – I didn’t get chance to test them all during the review though, so I think I will just take ROCCATs word for it.
The keys are very responsive and feed solid to use, and they are silent. Personally I like a good satisfying click when I type, but that’s just me! Although for playing games it is actually nice to be able to focus on the game audio. The keys also employ advanced anti-ghosting, so you can press any number of keys at the same time and they will all register.
ROCCAT’s proprietary button duplicator technology expands the command power with a single keystroke. Hold down the designated Easy-Shift[+] button to unlock a second function for a host of keys in the WASD zone. This is a very useful function for gamers!
ROCCAT have also included a detachable palm rest in the box – it’s very easy to fit, and remove – it just clicks into place. This is a useful addition and I found it very comfortable to use.
The ROCCAT Magma Membrane RGB Gaming Keyboard is a really great addition to your gaming set up – and it’s even great for typing reviews on!
The ROCCAT Magma Membrane RGB Gaming Keyboard is available now priced around £49.99.
