The Vulcan II Max is Roccat‘s latest flagship gaming keyboard with the all new Titan II optical switches. They’re lubed, dual LED lit, and very responsive. Have a listen to the typing and gaming tests in the video to get a feel.

In a nutshell, it’s great for gaming, media playback & customizing lights/macros. But it’s not so great if you want to type really fast; for that purpose, skip to something with brown or blue switches. Or Holy Pandas.

Roccat products use SWARM software to customize macros, lights and other settings (for Windows PCs). If you’re new to it, we have some tutorials to help you out:
