ROCCAT Keyboard- Pyro A Wireless Gaming Keyboard

ROCCAT Keyboard – Pyro Full-size Wired Mechanical Linear Switch Gaming Keyboard with RGB.

The Roccat Pyro gaming keyboard represents incredible value for the money. Because of its excellent linear switches, solid design, and crisp lighting, it’s one of the most enjoyable gaming keyboards I’ve seen over the last few years. But, for advanced gamers looking to invest more, the premium models of Razer and Steel Series could be just the bill a bit better.
