ROCCAT SOVA MK Gaming Lapboard Review

After many hours of usage, we do rather like the SOVA MK for gaming. Not just at the couch, but as one who uses a keyboard in our lap, the SOVA is also an advantage to us at the desk. The wrist rest is deep, the keys are easy to access, and while playing many hours of DOOM, we found no discomfort while gaming with this product.



We did find that if you adjust your positioning between rounds that the mouse can fall off the SOVA MK, but since the cable is tended to, it does not get far or fall to its death. While we are on the topic of the mouse pad, we like the highly textured surface, as we could either lower the DPI for better accuracy, as well as when raised, you barely have to move the mouse inside of the generously sized area.





A lot of the same features came in handy with Overwatch as well. We liked that with the use of ROCCAT Talk we can easily shift weapons and commands to the mouse, leaving us fumbling less with the keyboard. This game had us raising the DPI, though.


As DOOM is more open world, and twitchy movement is not needed, since most things appear ahead of you, with Overwatch, lower DPI settings left us lifting the mouse quite a bit. All in all, we had no issues playing either title and quickly got used to this lapboard, and thoroughly enjoyed our time using it.



Windows and Productivity


We even made sure to write a few reviews with the SOVA MK before tending to this one, and used it as a daily driver for quite a while. Having everything right there in one device is a cool concept to use, and this ROCCAT SOVA MK is a pleasure to use whether gaming, corresponding with emails, or even chatting with friends in various message systems. We edited photos and found again, that the mouse pad texture sped up our work due to the accuracy it can afford.


Also, since this has everything built right into it, if you want to get relaxed and put your feet up on the desk, the long cable and wire management built into the lapboard make it possible without a bit of hassle involved, or cords dangling, just waiting to be yanked on by mistake.
