A word of warning about anti-ghosting,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Roccat Arvo Compact Gaming Keyboard (Electronics)
This review will be a-I like it but....type
Firstly what's good about this keyboard.
Looks-the reason I bought it. Make no doubt this is a fantastic looking keyboard, and it's size is great.
Keys-keypresses feel absolutely fantastic.Really, really good the Rolls Royce of keyboards.
Macro Keys-nicely positioned.
So I like it but......
The antighosting only covers the WASD group.
If you use these keys then great, but I'm a leftie, using PL;' instead(everything else mirrored).
Unfortunatley ghosting issues arise.
Tests-Quake Live, Counter Strike:Source, pressing both shift keys and typing "THE QUICK BROWN FOX JUMPS OVER THE LAZY DOG"(it's the full alphabet, if this doesn't come out as you type then your keybaord has ghosting)
What problems does this cause?
In an FPS game you want freedom of movement. Often pressing more keys at a time than you realise. This could mean pressing opposite direction buttons at the same time e.g pressing and holding left then pressing right will cause your character to move to left speedily at first, more slowly then stop. Add more keys to this and you encounter problems. What this will feel like playing a game, will be like thinking you haven't pressed press a key hard enough, but actually what's happening is the keyboard didn't recognise the keypress.
Like I say if it wasn't for this, it would be five and a half stars.I really wanted to like this keyboard, and am really disappointed, but it was a deal-breaker for me. I've now recieved a Microsoft Sidewinder x4-full anti-ghosting, it's not as nice, but works.
