broken usb port


Many cheap electronics have poorly soldered usb connections. They will break after few inserts/removals. Only use these equipment if you do not plan to move them or tape the plug to the device so you don't accidentally put stress on the usb connection....

good keyboard when it's not broken. What you'd expect for a mechanical

Breaks if the usb is plugged in the wrong way or removed the wrong way. Can be salvageable if you know how to solder

love it


Other than the USB connector, this keyboard takes punishment and is study in design. Some think it noisy compared to other keyboards. I came here to buy another keyboard but Newegg is out of stock. If Rosewill mechanically strengthens the USB connector...

Increased my wife's typing speed ; Takes a pounding from gaming teenagers ; The USB cable is sturdy compared to other keyboard cables ; However the USB connector on keyboard is the weakness with this keyboard as of 2012

The USB connector on the keyboard PCB broke at the solder joints ; Had to repair by soldering USB cable wires directly to PCB and add strain relief to cable

Defective keyboard. Won't make right.


Was good, but does not matter when it fails. IT WILL FAIL

Keyboard failed as will all these keyboards sold. The reason being a fault USB connector that all of these keyboards have. They will all fail over time, just depends how much you unplug your USB ; They will not replace because it has been 3 years since...

Bad usb port


Nice Keys ; Easy to use Spacebar ; Easily cleanable ; Has a numpad

After 2.5 years of use I've experienced spotty connection the last 6 months ; And just after readjusting the cable the port has failed and fallen back into the encasement and is now unusable

USB problems


spent $90 for a keyboard to barely last 3 years

worked great for 2.5 years, then started to break down

after 3 years of use, usb started to lose connection. any little movement of keyboard would cause it to stop working, would have to wiggle wiring for 10 minutes to get it going again. the keyboard was kept in good shape, barely left my desk ; this is a...

nice keyboard


i would still buy another one if this one ever died, if i could find it on sale. the price seems to have gone up since i bought mine, but it might have been on sale, 66 dollars at the time. im not entirely sure if they have fixed the usb problem since...

been a fantastic keyboard for over two years now. (original purchase date 6/5/2012) exactly as advertised, and no keys have even started going bad ; im a nerd that spends at LEAST 6 hours a day on my pc, so its holding up quite well

the reason i didnt give this 5 stars is because of the usb connector to the keyboard. when i bought this keyboard, i figured the people saying the usb connector was bad were people that were constantly replugging it for whatever reason ; however, i...

Rosewill RK-9000RE


Mechanical Cherry MX Red switches are great. Feels great to type on (key caps are left to be a little less cons). Love the sound of each key bottoming out. They bottom out effortlessly which is great for gaming. Double tapping a key is...

One of my number keys on the num pad stopped working within a year (warranty just ended so cannot RMA...unfortunately) ; Key caps are ABS instead of PBT. They have a sleek feel that I do not really like. I like a softer key cap like that of the Corsair...

Good keyboard, but bad design


Rosewill should have recall this keyboard if possible.

very good mechanic keyboard, excellent typing feel, good built quality

USB connector design flaw makes this keyboard a total fail. Many people have already complained this, and now the happens to me as well

fantastic to type on


Feels amazing to type on

Some other customers are saying that the USB solder is bad, but I keep it always plugged in and haven't had a problem

Almost made it a year.


I'm an avid gamer so, naturally, I wanted to try out a mechanical keyboard. When I found this Rosewill on sale last year I jumped at the chance and was very happy with what I was seeing. The keys are VERY responsive to touch and there's no fluff at...

Fantastic quality, did everything I wanted when I wanted to. Replaced an old Logitech and never looked back

Purchased last year for black Friday as it was to good to pass up. Died yesterday ; Every Logitech keyboard I've had in the past has lasted me until I saw something shiny and new and purchased out of want. This time I'll be doing so out of necessity....
