iRocks are one of the newest names on the scene, and they’re on a mission to create some really great peripherals, without the premium price tag that often accompanies them. I only recently discovered the brand with the release of their iRocks Spirit Cocoon mouse, which was one of the most unassuming products I’d ever seen, only to be left with my jaw hitting the floor when I saw what it could do (full review here).
The K10 gaming keyboard is the second iRocks product I’ve ever seen, and if it is even remotely as interesting as the iRock Cocoon mouse, then it should still be pretty special. Targeted at the budget end of the gaming market, this keyboard looks set to innovate on just how much value for money you can really get from your peripherals.

At just £20-22 the K10 isn’t exactly going to hurt your wallet, but it’s packed full of features that should make it a great day-to-day keyboard for work and play, with some nice added bonuses that should appeal to the gaming market such as the 1000 Hz polling rate, long switch life and 30 key N-key rollover.
- Interface: Full Speed USB
- Polling Rate: 1000 Hz
- Key number: 104 keys (by language)
- Key stroke: 3.8±0.5mm

The packaging is nicely designed and certainly looks designed to appeal to a gaming audience. There are a few of the major features and specifications listed on the box (see above).
Around the back are a few small diagrams that detail how the new membrane switch works, as well as a more detailed run down for the keyboards features.
In the box you’ll find a hard wired keyboard, with a good quality USB cable attached and a simple to follow user guide.
