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...

Disappointing

 

This is my second Rosewill keyboard of this type. First one died for no reason, but it was an open box item. This last one was new. I could understand why it's lighting would die if I dropped it ( though annoyed that it would after such a soft drop),...

Nice heft and good lighting. Nice tactile feel

Died after a 2 foot drop, on a rug. A coffee table

Only lasted 1 year.

 

if my keyboard didn't die so quick, this would be the only keyboard i would ever purchase. but after it dying i have to stay away and look for a more reliable mechanical keyboard

its a mechanical key board, blue leds are perfect

2 days ago when i got home from work my keyboard wouldn't turn on, its dead. im so mad. i loved this keyboard but with it dying with in a year i won't buy this one again. $150 keyboard should not die so soon

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
