Roccat Horde AIMO Keyboard Review (Membranical)

Rating: 7.5.

Roccat’s newly updated Horde Membranical keyboard now features Aimo RGB intelligent lighting, and a plastic wrist wrest for better comfort, but its £89.99 price point seems quite steep considering fully mechanical options at similar price points.

Do the added macro and media keys make up for the lack of a proper mechanical switch or is the Hoard another just another membrane “gaming” keyboard?

KItGuru says: Overall the Hoard Aimo doesn’t set out to ultimately replace your mechanical keyboard, but offers a feature-rich option for those looking for an RGB gaming keyboard where switch type doesn’t matter.
