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...

First Impressions

 

OK, i'm compelled to comment on this keyboard even though I've only had it for a day. My typing speed is MUCH better! And I'm coming from a very decent Rosewill Cherry Blue MX keyboard. I really wanted baclit keys (I got the red LED figuring this might...

I'm typing faster! and more accurately! DVC

Decent Keyboard, but...

 

If Rosewill can fix their key sticking, then this keyboard would be a solid buy, especially at the price. As it is, it's alright, but be wary.

Keyboard is pleasantly heavy, keys clacky ; Solid finish ; LEDs all work just fine ; Very sturdy cable

Now, here's the problem. On many occasions, I've had keys electronically stick on this keyboard, turning a press of g into ggggggggggggggggggggggggg, forcing backspaces, etc, etc. Terrible for gaming with - the function this keyboard was advertised...

Babby's first mechanical

 

This was my first keyboard, and I sure as hell am not going to be able to go back to a rubber dome. The difference for typing is almost as "night and day" as the difference between an HDD and an SSD. I may be a bad typist, but the new mechanical...

Super sturdy feel, both the board and the keys themselves ; No extra freaking macro keys that I"ll never use ; Backlighting has multiple levels of brightness ; Media controls

None found so far

Works like it should.

 

Kind of regretting my purchase. It's a great keyboard for the price, but I should have paid the extra $30 and got a corsair.

Great keyboard for the price. I chose the cherry MX Black switches since I like to rest my fingers on my keys and don't want to accidentally push them. This is my first mechanical gaming keyboard so it's something I'll have to kind of get used to

The only problem I have had is the extra "w" key cap kept popping of when I would be holding it down when playing games. Maybe it's just a bad quality key cap, but it seems like it has a lot of wiggle, but I guess that's just what happens with mech...
