Introduction


My first experience with Roccat was when, after a few weeks of research, I settled on their Kone EMP for my first "enthusiast" grade mouse in 2013. It ended up being larger than I liked, but I had a solid experience overall, to the point where I then purchased an Alumic mousepad and a Ryos MK Pro mechanical keyboard as well. This was before RGB backlighting was a thing on mechanical keyboards, and things have changed tremendously in the last four years. Roccat has not slacked off either, with an RGB variant of the Ryos MK Pro, a new software driver, and now, a new line of keyboards for those who felt that the Ryos series keyboard was too big and bulky. Enter the Suora series, and thanks a lot to Roccat for providing the review sample of the Suora FX.


The very first thing you will notice here is the bezel, or lack thereof. In a massive contrast to the Ryos series, the Suora is all about the minimalist design - no bezels, no dedicated macro keys, no thumb keys, no integrated or even removable wrist rest. What you get instead is a full-size keyboard that occupies a much smaller footprint and, in a day where monitors are larger than ever, you will appreciate the added free space on your desk. The Suora series consists of the standard, non-RGB backlit variant and the Suora FX with RGB backlighting, which is the product under review. So let us begin with a look at the specifications below.
