ROCCAT Vulcan 120 AIMO Review

Introduction

ROCCAT Logo

ROCCAT was arguably the first major PC peripherals company to introduce addressable RGB LEDs to keyboards, mice, and headsets alike, and then they announced AIMO at CES 2018, which was meant to be a "living light" that continuously adapts to the surroundings and added peripherals. In practice all that resulted in was a dynamic lighting effect that sometimes took input from the display color scheme provided you gave it access, but was not as big a feature as they would have liked. Much has changed since our coverage of AIMO with the ROCCAT Horde AIMO two years ago, with the company having being acquired by a bigger fish in Turtle Beach. The company has continued to bring out new peripherals under the brand, which means we take a look at one of their recent keyboard offerings. Thanks again to ROCCAT for sending a review sample to TechPowerUp!


The ROCCAT Vulcan is a family of keyboards that comes with different features, beginning with the Vulcan 80 that uses single color LEDs for backlighting and moving on to the Vulcan 100 AIMO which adds in their AIMO RGB backlighting support. The Vulcan 120 is just the Vulcan 100 with an included wrist rest, and there are two other color variants of the Vulcan 120 numbered 121 and 122. All of these are full-size mechanical keyboards that are also the first to use ROCCAT's own Titan mechanical switches. We will go over the Vulcan 120 in great detail in this review, and this will serve as a good look at the rest of the Vulcan keyboards as well.
