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 switches, Standard layout, Two USB ports, Advanced backlighting system, Sturdy, Simple looks

Simple looks, Pricey!, No driver suite, Green LEDs for lock-keys

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...

Very disappointing after being a good Keyboard.


I liked the Keyboard while it lasted. For the price it felt very nice. However after about 7 months it stopped working. The USB hub still worked but the rest of the Keyboard was unresponsive. The backlit LEDs didn't even turn on. I tried re-installing...

Backlight ; nice mechanical feel

Volume shortcuts far FN key, required 2 hands for volume change ; Died after 7 months

Works well until it doesn't.


The keyboard functions fantastically. It does everything as advertised and has some nice driver free built in settings such as: Adjusting the Backlights, disabling the Microsoft Flag Key, and Multi Media controls ; I have no complaints about its function

Here is where I'm having a problem occasionally. Upon starting the computer, sometimes the Keyboard does not function and I have to unplug and it. I've been trying to search and see if my keyboard is defective, but have yet to read about anyone with...

Great until it doesnt work


was a fine basic mechanical keyboard

function keys are weird, I wish it had a designated volume slider. Oh yeah and it just stops working for no reason. Very clean, 5 months of light use, never moved from the desk. I tried in multiple P.c.s

Solid feel to the keyboard. Bright LEDs. Gaming mode is helpful. Haven't used the keybinding software but it looks to be simple enough. Good amount of noise from the keys, not too loud but you can still definitely hear that you're typing. Has audio...

I'm getting a little nit-picky, but I don't like how cheap the wrist rest is. There isn't much to it, and while putting it onto the keyboard one of the plastic pieces snapped off. It still works, but I can't help but think that the wrist rest was more...

I've owned Razer, Corsair, Logitech, etc. Name it and I've owned it. This keyboard is my 1st item of any kind from Rosewill. I must say this is quite a treat for me. The price to performance shames other keyboards like Razer and the cherry mx switches...

Great design and ease of use ; Sturdy construction ; Price is a phenomenal deal for this kind of keyboard ; Included game keys, key removal tool and arm rest are a great plus to an already solid item ; Included profile software is easy to use

None. Seriously I've owned 7 different mechanical keyboards and this one is the best deal of them all
