The ROG Claymore – In Review

For example, the 1-5 keys each have a roman numeral (I,II,III,IV,V) on them, which suggests a great focus on MMO gamers, who typically use the number keys for various skill usage. It’s a cool and useful feature, one of those minor touches that stands out from other keyboards.

ROG Armoury – The Software

 

The software reflects the keyboard in its relative simplicity and focus on using the device. As you’ll see in the shots in this section, it’s a very simple-to-understand interface. There are three sections, with the ‘Keyboard’ section having two sub-sections, namely customization and lighting.

I found the software very easy to navigate and understand. Creating and recording macros was a painless process, something I’ve found otherwise with other similar devices. The lighting options are very similar to what you’ll find on almost any RGB keyboard, but the choice is still pleasing to find, with options ranging from breathing and waves, to reactive and completely custom lighting setups.

Overall, a decent piece of software.

 

What Is The ROG Claymore Like To Use?

So, what’s the ROG Claymore like to use? The big question.

As someone whose been using Corsair mechanical keyboards for the past few years, I found it easy to transfer. Admittedly, it does feel like the key travel depth on the ROG Claymore was deeper than my own keyboard (the K95 RGB) which meant I was missing some keystrokes due to my shallow pressing. The keys on my review sample were reds, the same as I typically use, which made the switch much easier. The Claymore does come with offerings of blue, black, brown and red switches, a variety for any user’s desires.

I always enjoy setting up custom lighting and my usual macros (cut, copy and paste are essential one-key presses for a writer), and the Claymore allowed me to set up and enjoy playing around within minutes.
The software was easy to find and download, and there were no sticking issues I found in the process of getting it set up.

The biggest drawback I found while using the keyboard was the lack of a wrist-rest – something I appreciate when writing for long hours. The lack of the wrist-rest resulted in a keyboard that felt quite high when coupled with the deep key-presses I had to adjust to.

I’d like to have seen a rest included, but for many people, that won’t be an issue.

 

The Conclusion On The ROG Claymore

Overall, I enjoyed using the Claymore. It’s a beautiful piece of hardware, with the eye-catching Mayan designs on the chassis and striking RGB lighting. The stand-out features for me were the removable keypad and the additional key markings which were surprisingly helpful.
The removeable pad is something I’d appreciate on my own keyboard, as I find myself often shifting my K95 back and forth across my table, not unlike a typewriter, as I switch between gaming and typing; the additional macros and numpad make for a very lengthy keyboard. Compare that to the Claymore, where I can adapt it to my needs, and you can consider me pleasantly impressed.

The Claymore is certainly a high-quality keyboard, and it feels like the designers have thought carefully about who is going to use their keyboard and crafted it to appeal even more to those people. All in all, a keyboard I can recommend confidently to any gamer or power user looking for a little flair on their desk.
