Icky Key Depression

 

Obviously not a high end mechanical, but if you have the desk space, it's a decent buy.

Backlight is decent, headphone/USB jack, wrist rest

BIG this keyboard has A LOT of additional molding around the keyboard! I do not like the key depression, it is short and stiff

Acceptable

 

Probably won't do Rosewill again. The mouse that came with this broke in 2 months (laser doesn't work), and the quality of this keyboard was acceptable but it wasn't enough to make win me over. I'd been thinking of one of the Rosewill mechanical...

Key bounce and feel are good. Nice design and lights, and I like the headphone jack on the keyboard. No lag, acceptable build quality

The keys are a bit funky, with the backspace key being way too small and awkwardly placed. Not sure I'd want to write the next Great American Novel with this, but for general surfing and casual use it's acceptable

Good for the prce

 

Great for the price, but would not recommend if you intend to use it for a lot of typing.

Great Price. I bought it on sale, and it came with a free mouse. I like the back-lit keys. Gets the job done

Awkward layout, the keys feel a little too small and the placement is a little strange at first. Some of the keys stick occasionally

A darned good gaming keyboard for the price.

 

This is not a $100 keyboard hiding behind a $35 price tag, but it's pretty much as good as you are going to get at the entry-level price range. I enjoy playing and typing on this thing quite a bit, and you're not going to find another one for this...

For $35 you probably aren't going to find a better gaming keyboard than this. It's got macro keys, a winlock key, backlit keys, a USB side port (great for eliminating lag on a wireless gaming mouse), headphone and mic jacks, media keys, and a very nice...

It's really big-- my old keyboard already had to sit on top of my mouse pad just to fit on my desk, and the extra width of this board has not helped in that regard. Still, I made it work, and for this keyboard it's worth it ; It's not a mechanical...

Had trouble getting the macro keys to hold memory after shutdown. I am using it on a dell 7100 studio w/amd 6 core and windows 7. The fix that worked for me was to make sure the winlock was on during set up of the keys. After start up turn the winlock...

Low cost. Lighted keys

Big. Can't use the USB or sound ports on my slide out keyboard shelf. No driver available on rosewill site. Uses microsoft driver

Consumer review by:

Cheap"

 

Bought it, some keys didn't work, had to pay to send it back, I wanted my money back, now I am stuck with this. Fun. Don't buy it if you want something good.

Good blue LED ; Macro keys

Too big, TOO big ; Looks really cheap ; Keys are not really made for gaming

Very nice, and yet.....

 

I could have set up the Macro keys wrong and that did something. after unplugging it and uninstalling the driver, and restarting, I still have the same issue. I'd give this 5 eggs if i didn't have to deal with this, and 4 because it could be a short...

Cool Lights, right size for my hands(not so small that I have to peck type, but not so large that I hit the "S" key when I go for the "A" key). The Macro Buttons are way awesome and setting them up took 10 minuets. 6 of which was reading the...

After turning on Portal 2, the Spacebar stopped working and the NumLock key stopped working. It also has it in some weird mode where my character keeps waving to everyone........ I'm not sure if it's a macro issue or something else. i will be calling...

Broke in a week

 

I bought this keyboard after my last one stopped working and I decided to upgrade to a nice gaming one. After 6 days, the x key stopped working. Then the next day, several keys stopped working or decided they were several keys at once (w = 2w9l). Then...

Nice LEDs ; 30 macro combinations ; Windows Lock key ; Sturdy feet ; Solid Feel

Small keys ; Slightly off spacing for the keys ; Stopped working in a week
