The "innovative" scroll wheel serves very little purpose. every feature that can be programmed into it is a function of the buttons just the left of the wheel.
The "talk" function does not seem compatibile with this keyboard. when activated, the shift easy shift function does not affect my Kone AIMO or vise versa.
The space bar feel extremely unresponsive unless hit "perfectly", which can be extremely frustrating. Jumps failingto register in games, space failing to register when typing (even writing this I have had to proof read several times with loads of spaces not regsitered. Being a university student, this is not very ideal.
The colour brightness is, well, not very bright. The effects of the AIMO are nice but when you cant see them, is there a point?
Overall, the Horde AIMO is a decent keyboard. However, it comes with its flaws which to me are a deal breaker. The ISKU is essentially the same keyboard minus the wheel and the colours but a lot more responsive.
This is a gaming keyboard with lights, programmable keys and a tough build. The keys are a hybrid between sprung mechanical and membrane ones. The keyboard is a cabled one (USB)
It is plug and play and the various programmable keys can be assigned within game set ups. It takes up quite a lot of room on the desktop. It comes with ROCCAT’s own storm setup and customisation software.
My son has used this for a month now and generally likes it but complains that some of the keys are not as fast as a traditional sprung design. He has managed to use the programmable keys to do different things in his games and control the lighting effects. The tuning wheel seems a bit over sensitive but can be programmed to do a lot of function. However, it does take some getting used to.
A large fully customisable gaming keyboard with some neat touches. Not so sure about the Mebranical keys though. After 6 weeks of heavy gaming use by my son they feel loose and a bit dead to the touch. The lighting effects and controls are good but we have better keyboards that use fully mechanical keys. I would say this is fine for light use but get a fully mechanical one if you are a heavy gamer.
Illumination on the Horde is RGB for all of the main keys, keypad, and left macro keys. The top settings keys illuminate in a constant-brightness white (my Isku didn't, and that annoyed me), as do the lock indicators. The scroll wheel top-right does not illuminate.
Working across the top settings keys, we start with play/pause, track left/right, and mute. These are always illuminated as of the latest firmware, which changed this. Next up are volume, mic volume (which made no difference to mine), key brightness, key colour (which seems to fight with effect if active), key colour effect, window switch (alt-tab), and profile. All of these go dark except for one that's active, and the wheel then controls the value. The active key isn't remembered between power-offs, which is slightly annoying. Personally I'd have also liked a gap between audio controls and other controls.
The scroll wheel itself is a nice size, and protrudes from the back of the keyboard meaning it's easily found. However, I felt it could do with either a finger indent or a rubberised inside surface to aid anything other than scrolling its edge. Its detents are very crisp though, and movement is registered well.
On the left are the five macro keys. They are not full height, but are instead flat-topped keys that extend around 2mm, which some might prefer but I would like to be full. The software has improved significantly to control these, and they can now open arbitrary applications or web sites, as well as your usual key macros.
The software is also the main and most comprehensive way to control the key lighting, with various effects available. You may also choose the intelligent lighting which apparently colours your keys based upon active applications (if that's your thing), or go basic with single colour mode. You may also switch illumination off. What I would say about the LEDs is that they aren't "vibrant" even at full-brightness, and the illumination is not even both across the keyboard and within each key.
The keys themselves are unfortunately a little soft and "sticky" for me. They almost feel as though there's not much rebound to them, and already after just weeks of use the space bar has developed an intermittent squeak. These two reasons alone are enough for me to decide to switch back to my other keyboard. I also feel like there's quite a bit of travel to them, so if you're after something at the more chiclet end of the scale, this keyboard isn't for you.
Another bizarreness that took me a while to get used to is that the top number keys have the shift characters (!"£, etc.) below the numbers, instead of the standard position above. They're also full size, and the bulky font used to improve illumination area means this can take you a second to process at the beginning. Also missing is the second Windows key, on the right. It's replaced with a function key, the purpose of which isn't immediately obvious; I thought it'd toggle the Numpad7/Home key for example, but it doesn't.
It's an odd one, the Horde. The keys feel like they might be more at home on a cheap bundled keyboard, and the illumination almost seems like an afterthought. Firmware upgrades have changed the illuminated top keys but haven't done other things like store the active setting, with the software gaining many improvements if still a little clunky. The key layout and design leaves a bit to be desired, and if the top settings keys are only going to be one colour at least PWM dim them down with the rest. Unfortunately, I can't give this more than a 3-star rating; for all its wizardry with anti-ghosting, refresh rate, and fancy RGB effects, the Horde gets the basics wrong.
