3 months and still going strong


Would have been better to hard wire the keyboard and simply include a PS2 to USB adapter though I will be getting another when they're on sale.

Solid - heavy enough to use in a Zombie Invasion (just don't forget my morning cuppa). Similar to an IBM Selectric, means I can actually type faster then one of those cheap so called Silent keyboards. Bog standard 104 key setup. Comes with both a USB...

Blue LED's. They annoy me ; As others have said, poor mini-usb cable connection. Can be solved by replacing with a better cable

A joke in the poorest of tastes


I want to love this keyboard but its only flaw is so glaring I can't.

Responsive and durable. Serves me well when it actually works. Used primarily for chatting on the net and playing video games

My first keyboard's escape button broke after a few days so I went through the exchange process and got a new one ; I've been using the second one for a few months now and there have been consistent USB connection problems ; The keyboard can't be moved...

Good keyboard, but build quality is lacking


If you're spending this much on a keyboard, just go with a better brand.

I have 2 of these: one at work, one at home

The backspace key on one stopped working and I occasionally have connection issues with the other one. Both out of warranty

Consumer review by:

Flaky, questionable USB connector location


Fantastic keyboard, gives most of the mechanical feel of an MX Blue or similar, but without the loud noise. Still has a substantial sound to it, but it's lower and more of a thumping noise than an audible, high-pitched clack

The USB port location on this thing is pretty questionable. It's located where a fixed cable would enter the keyboard, but it's a Mini USB port that doesn't feel well-supported internally. I had to RMA the keyboard for loss of use of the 2-6 keys (not...

To those with problems


To everyone that is having a problem with switches and the back port not working: In my professional opinion these problems sound like a solder issue. If you feel comfortable opening the device and re-soldering the things yourself, do it. I am going to...

very nice feel. I've been very careful with the usb and had no problems. Best investment i ever made was to get a nice keyboard with some cheery blue switches. I hated the black and browns

it is a little lowed. make sure you don't add this to your office cubical

Ro$ewill Mechanical Keyboard


I intentionally purchase this keyboard without LED back-light for gaming to save some money, Cherry MX Black Switches seems to be my favorite to play, go research Cherry Switches to decide whats better for you. I am not afraid to scratch the paint off...

This is a very nice keyboard, at a very good price. I like the build quality and the look, it is simple and the USB port is a nice touch. It seem there are some problems with the USB port getting damage base on other reviews and feedbacks. Connect the...

Need to take care of

Lasts 4 months


Each keyboard I got from Rosewill seems to last 4 months on the dot before failing. I purchased the original keyboard on April and it failed in August, the second one I got in August and it failed in December. After the first keyboard failed I hid my...

Simple, Sturdy frame, Amazingly fast and accurate when typing

Micro USB connector in my first keyboard broke off and fell into the case making the keyboard useless. RMA process was easier than usual but my second keyboard began failing to register keys. RMA'd the second keyboard buy my warranty is about to expire...

Consumer review by:

Worked somewhat for a few hours


When the keyboard is working I like it

It worked intermittently and then stopped working altogether. I tried both usb and ps2. There is no information included with the product for how to troubleshoot possible driver-related issues

Consumer review by:

Feels good, shoddy workmanship


Rosewill's warranty/RMA services are obscure at best, absurd at worst. They state "If products are not purchased directly from Rosewill, please contact your vendors or retailers," meaning.. what, exactly? Contact requesting an RMA or repair? But most...

Affordable for a mechanical keyboard. When it works, it works well enough. Tactile feel is great, clicks are satisfying, no ghosting or any gamer-specific pet peeves. I like the straight-forward, no-nonsense aesthetics

Unit began flashing NUM/CAPS/SCROLL lights for 5-10s at a stretch within 3 months of purchasing it. Mini USB turned loose, requiring manual "jiggering" every now and then. After using the same $10 wired keyboard for something like 4 years, having a...
