Roccat Suora FX Keyboard: Detailed Features
The user can select between four pre-programmed lighting effects using the F1 to F4 keys. These effects include wave, breathing, ripple, and a solid color.
F5-F8 are shortcut keys for My Computer/This PC, internet browser, mail, and calculator.
Here we have some media control keys. You may rewind, stop, play/pause, and fast forward a music or video clip using the F9-F12 keys.
No dedicated macro keys are present on the Suora FX, but the Game Mode does give you access to the M1-M6 macro buttons.
Removing the key caps reveals the switches in a clear switch housing with the LED exposed on the top. The back plate is black, but the colors from the LED’s are bright enough to produce a nice glow effect underneath the keys.
The Suora FX comes with TTC Blue mechanical switches rated at 50 million clicks. For most computer users, these switches should feel about the same as any mechanical keyboard with Cherry MX blue switches.
There is a firm grip to the surface thanks to the five rubberized grips on the bottom of the keyboard.
Flipping out the feet does give some extra height to the keyboard. The rubberized pads on the two feet allows for a better overall grip.
Now that we have seen all around the keyboard, let’s take a look at the Roccat Swarm software in the next section.
