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!

At first when I ran the installer from the disc I got a BSOD and had to reboot. Second time I copied the installer to my desktop and it installed fine. Then the backspace key didn't work, thought I had a faulty switch. Turns out I had to change USB...

Rosewill Apollo RK-9100xRBR


I wish I hadn't gotten this keyboard, and had just picked up another non-gaming version. I love the backlighting of this one, but the double-type problem whenever I tap the letter "A" is killing this keyboard for me.

I have both this keyboard, and the non-gaming Rosewill mechanical with cherry mx brown switches. The brown switches on this one feel less crisp than the non-gaming version, despite both being cherry mx brown. That said, both keyboards have a very...

This gaming keyboard replaced a much much older dell keyboard that I've had for almost 16 years. I purchased this because of the huge amount of love I have for the non-gaming Rosewill mechanical keyboard I've had for over a year. This keyboard falls...

Do it.

Feel is outstanding, feedback is spot on. The noise harkens me back to the early 90s when IBM ruled the roost and not a soul slept in my house while I was hacking away on the local BBS

Full brightness is wicked freakin bright. Also, the USB cord is so beefy getting the two heads to plug-in while in on close proximity can be a challenge
