So uncomfortable & brought wrist pain back


The keys aren't concave enough to give good tactile feedback. The keys and rows are all pretty level instead of angled toward your fingers on home row. Level rows & keys is very bad for comfort & tactile feedback for me. I can type all I want on my...

Shift + cursor does NOT work



Using Shift + any of the four cursor keys does NOT let cursor select multiple characters or lines in text. I had to press left or right cursor key once for each character. I had to press up or down cursor key once for each line. This makes selecting...

Cheap but it works


Acceptable only as a keyboard for typical light home use and internet browsing, basically

Every time you do a build you need a keyboard and a mouse. This keyboard has the PS/2 connection and fortunately, my build had a PS2 port for a keyboard. So if you are doing a low end build, this keyboard is suitable and about what you get from a...

Cheap and about as basic as you can get, but what do you expect for $5.99? A full featured Microsoft keyboard could run you over $60.00

Decent & cheap solution, but if you plan on doing any real typing, looking for something else as the backspace key is a real hassle.

Cheap and relatively sturdy ; Simple solution ; Compact

Backspace key is tiny

Rosewill RK-201 Black 107 Normal Keys PS/2 Wired Standard Keyboard


Keep in mind this is the PS/2 model.

The keys are very responsive and have a good crisp feel when typing ; I do a lot of typing and this keyboard makes it much easier

The smaller backspace key can take some getting used to ; There are no multimedia buttons so you won't be able to quickly mute the sound if you need to

Nice, Simple Keyboard


I've bought several different Rosewill products before and I've never had problems with any of them. I know they are a cheaper brand, but I'm definitely satisfied with their work.

Perfect Keyboard ; Nice and simple, with no extra unneeded media/function buttons ; Feels nice and blends with my black case, screen, speakers, and computer desk

Good and cheap


If my computer has ps2 ports, I like to use them over usb because they are dedicated to the basic input device, and generally always work.

Good key strokes, quite and smooth, nice weight

backspace is small, but I am already adapting

Very nice cheap keyboard


Great keyboard. Buy it!!

Another quality Rosewill product. The feeling of the keys is great as you type. Very quiet, but still has a firm feeling so you can tell you're actually hitting keys. Love it

The feeling takes just a bit to get used to, but by the time I had the OS installed on my new build, I was totally used to it
