ROCCAT SOVA MK Gaming Lapboard Review

ROCCAT SOVA MK Gaming Lapboard




When the SOVA MK is laid flat on the table, both sides are identical, except for being mirrored images of each other. You can see the pads under the lapboard, and we find the sides are angled to make gripping them easier. Near the back edge, on both sides, the ROCCAT name is carved in it as well.





The central section of the SOVA MK contains this 84-key mechanical keyboard built right in. There are lock LEDs at the top edge and more keys than just the standard row of F-keys along the top. Command keys run down the right side, and we can also see the Easy-Shift key on the left, as well as the naming just under the keyboard.




Multimedia functionality is housed in the F-keys. Here we find the mute, volume down, volume up, calculator, play/pause, and the stop buttons from left to right.




The next group offers last track, next track, my PC, browser, LED light adjustments in five levels, and a record button for Macro programming.




For those that do not run down the right side of the keyboard, these command keys work a dual purpose. The top function is the default, and using Shift will allow you to use the Pause Break, a Number Lock which we do not see a need for, and the Scroll Lock.




Below the keyboard section, we have a texturized wrist rest. This panel is removable, and on it, we see the ROCCAT name and logo cut into the panel, and left shiny to contrast against the texture.




The entire right end of the SOVA MK is left to be used with a mouse. Again, this panel is removable, and to keep the surface the same across its entirely, a large ROCCAT logo is painted on, as not to cause issues with mouse tracking.




Under the SOVA and SOVA MK, you will find the four, rather large, padded "feet." These are what keeps this weighty lapboard comfortable and also reduces slippage while on your lap. Each of the pads is removable, in case you want to use it in a table, and again we see the ROCCAT name and logo cut into this as well.
