Solid Keyboard - Malfunctions constantly


Rosewill usually makes good middle-of-the-road quality PC parts but I really think they are slipping with this one. Should have just waited for the Ducky Shine 3 to come back into stock in the states.

I picked up this keyboard for a new build in January of 2014, I was really impressed with the build quality and the overall weight of the keyboard. No flexing and the components are great quality. The brown key switches are just what I wanted as far as...

This keyboard constantly malfunctions in that I need to unplug and re-plug in the USB port to get it to resume functioning. Also, the 3rd and 4th brightness settings often result in a rapid flickering that can't be fixed unless I unplug and re-plug in...

Great, reliable... Spilled a drink on it within first five hours of ownership and it still functions 100% nearly a year later. Love the backlit keys, good shade of blue. Matches my whole set up. Mechanical keys are where it's at. Also fancy...

Little bit noisy, but is to be expected with mechanical keys

Outstanding keyboard


I might give the built in USB hub a shot, but it is USB 2.0 and I am spoiled by USB 3.0 and have converted everything over to that, so perhaps or perhaps not...

This is the fourth mechanical keyboard I have owned. This one is outstanding, and nearly identical to one I had before...the QuMax X-Armor by iOne. That keyboard was the same switches, build quality, and even has the same rubberized texture but did not...

None except perhaps price, but you get what you pay for. I could do without the Rosewill branding...they should put that on the bottom because quite frankly I think the name "Rosewill" and the font used are out of place on this otherwise beautiful...

Mostly Wonderful


It delivers what it advertises: an inexpensive, non-ridiculous-looking mechanical keyboard that is backlit (and has two USBs, if you need them.) The items listing above in the cons are really nitpicking, and in general I'm extremely happy with it. It...

Very inexpensive for feature-set ; very clean, non-flashy look ; braided chord appears good and tough

Takes up two USBs to power the LEDs. Hadn't run into that with previous keyboards ; illuminated capslock/numlock/scroll lock keys are over-bright and a different color. Altogether looks odd/ugly ; Personal preference, but I wish there was a setting of...

Decent but is it lasting?


I don't regret buying the keyboard. The action again is great and it has that satisfying mechanical feel. I just am going to have to replace it sooner than I expected.

Really clean look, great key feel/action. LED backlight looks great

Now that I've had it for a year and a half the keyboard goes inactive for about 10 seconds every now and then. For a more expensive keyboard I would expect it to, when kept clean and not taken traveling, last a while longer in like new working order

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...
