Roccat Magma keyboard - membrane keys

Roccat Magma is a gaming keyboard, but is a membrane design rather than mechanical!

You can tell Roccat created this keyboard with due care and with gamers in mind. Unlike typical membrane keyboards that are cheaply designed and built, this one blows past them with features like:

  • 26 key roll-over
  • Anti-ghosting
  • LED lights with 5 zones in 16.8 million colors

It’s interesting how the Magma didn’t tire out my fingers like normal membrane keyboards do, and I was able to game with it for hours. And unlike most LED keyboards, this one lights up the whole board with a translucent top plate. It’s pretty cool!
