Its actually not that bad for such a low price keyboard, it feels great

Somewhat a bit squishy, you gotta be careful with it, if you are some who snaps for time to time

Can't beat it for the price


Can't beat this keyboard for the price. Make sure you are aware this is a PS2 connector keyboard, NOT a USB.

cheap ; has all the keys you need, even a num pad

small backspace key takes some getting used to ; loud

Did it's job


Recommended for anyone who wants a cheap keyboard built to last a few years

Cheap and just werks

After 3 years of use, the keys started to jam up, which was expected of this keyboard ; The backspace key is kind of small

Bad design


What can I say, go cheap, get cheap. Although it does make me wonder how any other keyboards from Rosewill are designed...

Cheap, sometimes works

DO NOT BUY ; This keyboard has a design flaw that makes it very annoying to own, but not within RMA specifications. Random keys will at random times decide to only respond to half the key presses. The solution is to pop the key off and realign the...

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...

Cheap ; Cute ; Small Frame

Uncomfortable ; Low Tactile Feedback

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
