ROCCAT™ Arvo – Compact Gaming Keyboard
Bigger isn’t always better. More room on your desktop means better use of your space. The compact ROCCAT™ Arvo was explicitly designed with this in mind. It’s the first keyboard to offer a gaming mode integrated into the num pad, and unique Thumbster keys. These three extra keys can be assigned macros or the practical timer function, features found on no other keyboard in the world. With all of the power, quality, and precision of ROCCAT’s entire line of keyboards, the Arvo is a space saver, and a game winner.
“Never underestimate the power of the thumb.”

COMPACT LAYOUT
Num pad and myriad gaming functions melded into one small, but wholly effective gaming space.
SPACE SAVED, GAMES CHANGED
The Arvo is part of the ROCCAT™ Smart Desktop Management System. In contrast to other keyboards, its small desktop footprint ensures neither mousepad nor mouse will get in your way. The Arvo is perfect even for arrow key gamers, who prefer to position their keyboards diagonally to the monitor and mousepad, as it doesn’t collide with the monitor or hang over the edge of the desk. In short, it compliments your need for space, the way you play, and thus your ability to win.
ILLUMINATED STATUS KEYS
When in Gaming Mode the arrow keys, Mode Switch button and Caps Lock will be lit.
DUAL-ASSIGNMENT NUM PAD
You sacrifice nothing with the ROCCAT™ Arvo. The smaller size has been achieved simply by combining the numpad and arrow-key pad. It has all the usual keyboard functions any gamer would demand. It’s easy to switch between normal and gaming mode simply by pressing the mode switch button. In gaming mode the arrow keys are conveniently illuminated in blue, which means gaming in the dark is no problem.
3 THUMBSTER KEYS
The 3 Thumbster Keys are easy to reach and can be freely programmed with custom macros.
GET YOUR THUMBS INTO THE FIGHT
Are all your digits in? Now you can give your thumbs something useful to do instead of just hovering over the spacebar. Our ROCCAT designers and engineers put three individually-programmable Thumbster macro keys right below the Arvo’s spacebar, each easily activated with a quick thumb strike.
