ROCCAT Horde AIMO Gaming Keyboard Product Review

hordeaimo

ROCCAT has once again sent over another product for review on ThisGenGaming (thanks ROCCAT) making it the 5th product of ROCCAT to be reviewed by us. In previous reviews, we have heavily praised the products, and they have become one of my favourite companies for gaming products. Will that be for the same for the review of the Horde AIMO Gaming Keyboard? Of course it is, ROCCAT have once again out done themselves with an incredible gaming keyboard. As usual, I will go through and review the design, the value, and the features of the product.

Design

Like pretty much all of the products of ROCCAT I have reviewed, the biggest highlight for me is the amazing RGB illumination of the keyboard which makes the product stand out more, looks cool and now I find it hard to even use gaming products that don’t have it. As always the RGB illumination is completely customizable with the ROCCAT Swarm software. The keyboard like all other ROCCAT products I’ve reviewed is very well made, and just feels natural to use. There’s also the much appreciated added bonus of the keyboard being pretty silent thanks to the design of the keys which are also super fast in response time, and will register every key stroke your throw at it. As ROCCAT boasts “the Horde AIMO can keep up” with your actions. The Horde AIMO also features a 360 degree tuning wheel, that like any other parts of the keyboard is customizable to what it controls. Want to use the wheel for volume, illumination or for brightness? You can do that plus much more, it’s an absolute handy feature to have.

Value 

As of publishing this review (July 18th 2019) the Horde AIMO can be bought on Amazon right now for £44.99 which is an absolute steal for what you are getting. You are getting an amazing premium gaming keyboard at pretty affordable price. I’ve seen and used gaming keyboards that have cost much more, and didn’t come close to being as good as an experience as the Horde AIMO was during gaming sessions. If you are currently looking for a reliable gaming keyboard that looks nice too, and you don’t want to spend too much money on it, then the Horde AIMO is definitely something to consider when shopping around for the perfect gaming keyboard.

Features

As with any ROCCAT gaming product, you can expect it to have many great features that warrant the purchase of the products. Here is what you can expect to get with the ROCCAT Horde AIMO gaming keyboard.

Final Verdict

The Horde AIMO goes down as another recommendation to purchase thanks to its very reasonable pricing for what you would be getting. It’s comfortable to use, it feels like its durable enough to take the impact that comes with using a gaming keyboard. It’s also an added bonus that it will catch anyone’s eye when using it in your set up, thanks to its RGB illumination. If you are looking for an affordable gaming keyboard right now, then the ROCCAT Horde AIMO is the one to go for.
