Great but flawed

 

My other 9000 is the MX Blue model and working great, I just constantly worry that if I pack it up and move it, it'll stop working. Really impedes my enjoyment of an otherwise exceptional keyboard.

Excellent key feel, excellent construction overall, but one glaring and hideous flaw (see cons). Excellent typing and low overall noise level, silencing rings make it acceptable for use even in cubicles, minimalist design is non-MS OS friendly, with no...

The USB jack on mine has almost completely failed after a bit less than two years. My keyboard was only ever packed up and moved three times, and didn't get any abuse or wear in normal operation. This is NOT the build quality I expect in a keyboard of...

Great Case

 

The LED's light up when plugged in. I disassembled the board to confirm the solder joints on the USB connector did not separate (as was a problem in a previous revision of this product). The controller is removable / replacable! Unfortunately, finding...

Sturdy, steel backplate. Typing on it feels great; very solid

I think the controller burned out on me just after the 2 year mark

Good keyboard, poor design choice.

 

I would have gladly given this a 5 star review, had my connector not died two months after I purchased the keyboard. The port was extremely loose, to the point where if I touched it, it wiggled. This was not a case of overuse, in this case I've only...

Great key feel ; Perfect size keyboard

Poor design choice for connector ; Removable power cord

Broke right after warranty expired

 

I have never spent money on a keyboard until this one. I always thought the benefit of a nice keyboard was just not worth the money that could be spent elsewhere. With out any mistreatment or movement at all the keyboards cable connector stopped...

Nice simply responsive keys

Broke right after my 30 day warranty expired ; Loud

Bad USB design

 

I got the refurb. / open-box version for half-price so I won't add to the cons that it was full of cat hair and had food crumbs inside. I've taken the case apart. I think it should be possible to remove the mini-USB jack and solder the cable directly...

Key action is great. My first contemporary mechanical keyboard

The detachable USB cable is just terrible. I can think of no reason to have a detachable cable on a keyboard. The fact it's a mini-USB is just adding fuel to the fire. I couldn't get through one mission on Dishonored without it coming loose

Rosewill RK-9000BR

 

This keyboard feels great! very simple to use and great feedback on the keys. The keycaps have held up well, the only thing that broke was that the USB connector became loose after a while and it stopped working. Well so I called Rosewill after 2 years...

USB connector seems to be the weak link of this keyboard but the actually keyboard is fantastic

Best Keyboard I've Ever Owned

 

I would have liked the option of Cherry MX Black switches, as I do not need the tactile bump any more than I need the click mechanism (I'm somewhat heavy-handed on the keys). Also worthy of note, and I think it's mentioned in the product specs, you...

Small ; Quiet ; High quality ; Driverless ; I have little desk space, so small is always a bonus. I mostly use my PC for gaming, and like to keep quiet, so the Cherry MX Brown switches, lacking the click mechanism, are excellent and quiet, though not...

Not enough to dock an egg for, but the edges of the aluminium upper body are indeed sharp, as another reviewer noted on the Cherry Blue model of this keyboard

It will fail, just a matter of time

 

Keys are great. Red metal plate below keeps gives sturdy look

USB connector. Keyboard was on the single desk whole time. Just died one day - bad connection with mini USB. Such a disgrace to have only one thing that can fail and that thing fails for everybody every time. How NewEgg even can still sell this? Is the...
