Roccat Sova Review (Gaming Lapboard)

Roccat Sova Review (Gaming Lapboard)

Lapboards seem to be the new in thing with Corsair and Razer releasing their take on the concept recently. When we tested them we found that Corsair really pushed the idea to the max without perfecting it. Razer took a more compact approach which had its own issues. Today we find out what another manufacturer can do on the lapboard front in our Roccat Sova Review.

Roccat Sova Review – Packaging and Bundle

The Sova arrives in a fairly large box, as expected, and gives a nice clear view of the products main use scenario. Inside we find lapboard surrounded by protective cardboard and bundled with it is some product documentation and a USB cable. That has two connectors for our PC and another for the board connectivity.

The Sova is shown above and our version is the membrane model. An alternate edition is available with mechanical keys if that is to your tastes. Towards the bottom left we have a textured wrist rest and it, like the gaming surface is replaceable. The main body of the board is plastic, the rest and surface are textured and the key surfaces a matt, almost soft touch like coating. As for dimensions, Width 64.6 cm , Height 28.0 cm , Length 3.7 cm  with a Weight of 2350 g.

As noted above the Sova is a membrane model and that means slightly lower profile (and silent) keys when compared to the mechanical model. Each is backlit (blue) with per key configuration, 6 LED settings and anti-ghosting with  N-Key rollover is supported.

Flipping the board over we find four padded sections which are removable. Up towards the top/back of the board, we find our main connectivity, a wire which connects to the 4meter breakaway cable and two USB ports. They can be used for a mouse, headset or phone with wiring channels also present, keeping our gaming area tidy. Finally, it is also worth noting the presence of 512kB memory with a 32-bit Arm IC.

Roccat Sova Review – User Experience and Conclusion

http://www.municholchol.cl/?buying-a-research-paper-for-college Buying A Research Paper For College Starting with the build quality of the Sova we have a product which feels very sturdy. We noted no defects on the finish. Each component fit nicely and even the little details such as the break off cable offered a decent fit with a high-quality finish. On the design front, plenty of other positive aspects. Wiring channel, extra USB ports, padding in the ideal locations and a mostly traditional keyboard layout.

On the design front, plenty of other positive aspects. Wiring channel, extra USB ports, padding in the ideal locations and a mostly traditional keyboard layout. There are a few tweaks that we would make such as offering a soft wrist rest and adding a ridge around the gaming surface so that our mouse is contained when at a slight angle.

As far as software goes, we can’t say much about that now as it isn’t yet ready however past experience with the Swarm application tells us it should be a positive experience. The core functionality of that app is all very intuitive with responsiveness being high. Roccat also offers a smartphone app (and holder which attaches to the side of the lapboard) for those who wish to tweak the options that way.

In terms of typing experience, no complaints from us. The keys have a decent resistance to them and action quickly. The LED lighting is strong and our gaming surface offers a nice smooth, low friction experience. It is also a very comfortable board to use due to a decent amount of padding on the base.

Summary: A nice balance of size, performance, and features. Some minor tweaks would take it towards perfection but in our opinion the most balanced, well-rounded lapboard currently available.
