ROCCAT SUORA FX Mechanical Gaming Keyboard
The left side of the Suora FX is seen to have two parts to the frame, the lower part made of plastic, while the top is an aluminum alloy. All the switch bodies are exposed, and the keycaps are concave, but the first few rows are tilting away from the user.
These seventy-four keys are US based use and are a QWERTY layout. Across the top, we see many keys with a dual purpose, but we see no fancy left side Macro keys, or anything Thumbster related. The font is clear and easy to read, with nothing unusual in the way any of the legends are presented.
The F1 through F4 keys are there so that you do not need the software to play around with the RGB LEDs.F1 is Rainbow mode, F2 breathes in a spectrum of colors. F3 is an explosion of colors working away from each key that is pressed, and F4 puts the LEDs into a static mode illuminated light blue like the Suora.
The next group has the F5 key to open This PC, and F6 opens your default web browser. F7 will open your defaulted email handler, and F8 will bring up the Windows calculator.
Multimedia starts in the next block of four keys. The F9 is the back-track key; the F10 stops the track. F11 is used to play or pause a track, and F12 takes you to the next track in the playlist.
On the right end of the Suora FX, there are thirty-four keys, not the typical thirty. There is an extra row at the top which continues with the volume end of the multimedia keys and is also where the Game Mode key is. We see that there is a standard set of arrows as well as arrows on the number pad, so left-hand gamers have a choice of which to use.
Pulling double duty on six of the command keys, ROCCAT uses these to offer some Macro support. After importing or programming Macros via the SWARM software, they can be set to these six keys for usage while gaming.
