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

Expert Review

 

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...

Well it has a great feel, but odd problem on Windows boot

 

This is a lot of money to spend and then have the keyboard have this odd problem.

Great keyboard feel, nice backlighting, SOLID

Takes TWO USB PORTS. Up until now, no complaints. However I am experiencing a strange problem where the computer will not respond for about 45 seconds after boot up. I can immediately use my mouse, and click my user name, but the keyboard is dead, it...

Dont buy

 

If you are in a market for a mechanical keyboard, buy a real one.

Great Keyboard-cord TOO stiff

 

Other than the cord issue; a great keyboard and would recommend it to anyone looking for a quality mechanical unit!

Great key feel and actuation, as you'd expect from Cherry switches. For me; the brown switches are the perfect middle between blacks (high actuation force) and reds (low actuation force). Though they're rated as a "non click" type mechanical key; there...

The power cord consists of three separate elements. The USB cord that powers the keyboard, plus two smaller cords with 3.5mm jacks that plug into the mic and headphone jacks on your comp. Allowing you to plug those two devices directly into the...

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
