We’re happy to see established manufacturers leaning into the customization market, and the Roccat Vulcan II Mini is one of Roccat’s newest additions to the customizable keyboard market. However, while we happily replaced the keycaps to celebrate the holiday season, we were much more impressed with the keyboard’s performance and features, which is no surprise as the Vulcan series is near perfect.
Roccat Vulcan II Mini can be small and compact because it comes in a 65% form factor. On the other hand, it offers all the features you need, including Smart Keys Roccat and the Easy-Shift feature, the latter essentially introducing you to a new set of keyboard actions. And while the optical switches can get a little extra drag compared to their mechanical counterparts, they’re quick and responsive, making winning games like Control and Kena: Bridge of Spirits a lot easier.
Of course, the small size, low profile, and light weight also make the keyboard travel-friendly. So if you want to play on the go, this gaming keyboard is the one for you.
