Back in 2019 we took a look at ROCCAT’s Vulcan 120 AIMO Mechanical Gaming Keyboard and we liked it quite a lot. Well they are now back with the Vulcan II MAX. This full-size gaming keyboard features ROCCAT’s own Titan II optical mechanical switches, a very unique design with low-profile keycaps on full-size switches, dual-LED switches for some awesome lighting effects, dedicated media controls, and aluminum top-plate, and a translucent palm rest that lights up with the RGB lighting from the keyboard itself. Is this keyboard all looks or is it going to be on your short list of keyboards to buy in 2023? Read on as we find out!
