Rosewill RK-9100 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard

 

Rosewill manages to add some good features to an already well-performing keyboard; however, these come at a rather hefty price increase of $40. The new light system is quite fancy, and its gaming mode disabling the Windows keys is a welcome addition....

Choice of Cherry MX Blue or Brown key switches, Rugged build quality, Braided USB cable, WASD-only lighting mode

Extra-bright Num Lock, Scroll Lock, Caps Lock keys, Keyboard does not recall lighting preferences from boot to boot

On the whole, this board is a solid buy, but look for occasional sales on Newegg. Mind you, no mechanical keyboard is cheap, but seeing as this one is light on gamer-specific features beyond the backlighting, you should be able to find it on periodic...

Rosewill RK-9100 Illuminated Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review

 

Rosewill has come up with a real beauty with the RK-9100 series and if you like Cherry MX Blue or Brown switches you are in luck!

Love the feel of it

 

My arrived in "Gaming" mode, which means, for me, that the "Windows" key is disabled. After scanning through the manual, I discovered that 'Fn+F12' switches to "PC" mode, which solves this problem.

Great feel, feels very well built, love typing on it. I'm a software engineer, and very seldom play games, so the feel of the keyboard is the main reason that I selected this unit

They don't support Linux for it. That's not to say that it doesn't work with Linux, but there are a couple little glitches. In particular the "Num lock" and "Caps lock" indicators don't work. I seldom use either, so it's not a big deal to me ; It's...

addition to previous review

 

It would be nice to have dedicated buttons for media or a dial for volume but I don't take an egg for that as it's obvious in the description and photos that it doesn't have them. The more I type on it, the more I love it. Only problem is that now when...

Forgot to mention the LED lighting is surprisingly flicker free. I've had both a Saitek in blue and Corsair K70 in red and both had that annoying flicker often found in LED lighting that some people are sensitive to

Cherry MX Black switch Rosewill Apollo

 

For those that prefer Cherry MX Black switches this is worth consideration when it's on sale. Note this exact keyboard is available under a few different names like the Sentey Crimson or Max Keyboard Nighthawk. Different brand names have different...

Everything it claims to be. Feels solid, comes with a key puller and 8 extra keys, arrows and wasd. All numbers, letters and standard symbols are well lit

The media key symbols while visible are poorly lit. The extra, orange keys have a slightly rough texture compared to the stock keys but it would be more helpful if the tactile difference were less subtle

Consumer review by:

feel is wonderful for gaming and typing alike. very precise and feels really solid. construction seems to be very well built as well. overall i would buy it again
