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...

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!

Nearly Perfect


Outside of the small concern from the initial sticking key thing, I've really happy with the keyboard. Someone should figure out what's up with the sticking keys, though, as it seems to be relatively common.

Cherry MX Brown switches ; Even red backlighting ; Full-size, not over-sized ; Not too loud ; Audio/USB passthrough ; Cold connectors

Some issues with "sticking" keys at first, but hasn't happened since first few days

Great keyboard, flimsy wristpad


I'm too spoiled to go back to a non-mechanical keyboard

The keyboard is well laid out, every key feels perfect to my fingers ; Gaming mode is a huge boon when playing games that don't support borderless windows ; Glows pretty colors ; Wristpad feels nice

The connectors that hold the wristpad to the keyboard are incredibly easy to break. Seems like a cut-corner

Consumer review by: Michael P. (



If you're going to spend $130 on a keyboard you'd expect to get several years of use out of it. Mine died after 18 months of use and the warranty is only good for 12 months. I'll update my review if I hear from the manufacturer

Died after 18 months of use. Not abused, no apparent reason. Cables are intact from the USB to the keyboard. Keystrokes are not being recognized and the LED's won't turn on

Nice feeling, very clicky

Best KB I've ever owned!


I highly suggest buying O-rings for dampening the key & a key puller with this KB. I O-ringed mine up & it feels much better when typing than without them.

Nice basic aesthetics, does not have crazy colors or a ton of flashing lights like most gaming KBs. Your choice of Cherry MX switches, I went the browns & love them! Very nice red backlighting, not extremely bright but more than enough for using in the...

None that I found yet, if pressed for one weakness I'd point out the software for making macros is not very good & kinda confusing
