Perfectly Adequate


Overall this is a very nice keyboard with some lazy and cheap shortcuts. Given the price point I don't think those shortcuts are valid. This is just below premium quality at a premium price compared to competitors. Couple that with the quirks and you...

Semi-Premium keyboard in some places, less than premium in others ; Standard Cherry MX Brown switches ; LED lighting has good presets ; Macro ability is actually pretty good. Could be implemented slightly better but overall pretty good ; Has a nice...

The satin finish may feel nice but goodness is it a mess in reality. Absolutely any oil on your fingers, even freshly washed, will smudge the keyboard. It makes things look trashy really, really fast. It cleans up well but it's still pretty annoying...

Great Keyboard


Feels like a solid keyboard. I love the tactile and click feedback! The back-lite keys are very important to me and at this price it's a steal. Also the two USB hubs are an added bonus. The back lighting on the keys are positioned at the top which make...

While a great product there are a few things I would like different on this keyboard ; 1. The capslock, num lock and scroll lock are very bright green when active. While the keyboard lets you change the backlight brightness, those green indication...

Nice Gaming Keyboard


I got this keyboard for the office and its a little loud. Might take it home if people complain but either way I will use it.

Nice and heavy keyboard, wont move on you. Comes with brightly colored replacement keys for arrow keys and wasd ; Hooked right up no problem

Might be too loud for the office. Just be aware ; The worst part is the headphone jack has a bit of feedback so its not really great for plugging into :( but other than that its good, this is why I only gave 4 stars

Decent KB


Cherry MX Blue switches provide good tactile and auditory feedback ; Adjustable lighting (I keep it turned off, because it's distracting) ; Solid build, doesn't move about on my desk like cheap plastic keyboards I've used in the past

Some of the key labels are laid out oddly; namely the number and punctuation keys. Their alternate (shift+) character is listed next to the number/character, as opposed to above it, as most other keyboards have it. I imagine this is to illuminate both...

Very Very Nice


This is my first mechanical keyboard. I think I'm spoiled on them now! I love the "klack" of the keys. I think I'm glad with having gone with the Cherry MX Brown switches. Because of my many years of using membrane-based keyboards, I tend to push much...

Good sturdy quality. The backlit keys are very clear and easy to see. Decent variety of illumination levels. I really like the USB ports and headphone and mic ports. Those are a nice addition

The keys with a different shift-status character have the two different characters right next to each other (as opposed to on top of one another). I don't like that, but I think I understand why it was done. The blue LEDs are above the switches, so...

Rosewill Illuminated Mechanical Gaming Keyboard RK-9100 with Cherry MX Blue Switch


Cord is long enough, lights can be toggled on or off, lights can be dimmed, keys click nicely, pressure feels right

Unfortunately I cannot customize which keys are lit and which are not. There 3 preset "modes" for which keys are back-lit. Since this was not advertised as a feature this product still gets 5 stars

Stopped working out of nowhere after a few months


I'm sure this was just some bad luck and nothing really on the companies part, but after a few months I booted up my PC and it was just not working. The LED's didn't come on, and the keys that did work were typing numbers instead of letters. I hope I...

Worked fine while it worked

Stopped working after about 3 months for me (never spilled on it or anything)

Rosewill Apollo RK-9100xB Blue Backlit Mechanical Keyboard


this keyboard is so nice and quality is top notch, I would definitely buy this or something just like this again. Ill never go back to a regular keyboard again.

This is my first mechanical keyboard and i love it! The blue switches sound amazing, and the feel is pretty great also.The blue LEDs are perfect, every part of the keyboard has the same brightness, I really like the 2 front usb ports, it comes in...

the only con is that you have to use two hands to use the media keys, but not a big deal ; i ordered this last week or so and now its on sale
