Rosewill Apollo RK-9100 & RGB80 Mechanical Keyboards Capsule Review

With the Apollo RK-9100 and the RGB80, Rosewill proves that they can do a very good job when they want to design and market high-performance computer peripherals. Despite their simplicity, the quality of either keyboard does not disappoint. We do admit...

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...

Solid Keyboard

 

Overall, its great. Full recommended 5 stars. I love the experience typing with it and I recommend it to anyone who reads this. As I previously mentioned, its relatively expensive at $150 and there are some better options under that price point for a...

This is a really solid keyboard that I would greatly recommend ; The photos provided do not do it justice; I have it sitting in a slight shadow and it looks awesome as it glows red in the dark ; Really smooth typing experience. This is my first...

Its a little expensive. I bought it on sale for $99, but I personally think there could be some better options out there for under the normal price point of $150 ; Occasionally the backspace key will just randomly act like you are holding it down until...

Could have been closer to perfection

 

This is the best keyboard I've ever owned (although that isn't saying much). If it were my product, I would have scrapped the USB extension ports, mic, and headphone connections, and would have made the key legends visible without backlighting, just...

Very well built, mechanically. The feel of the keyboard is absolutely excellent

Useless USB ports (they don't operate at 2.0 speeds). Lights for Numlock, Capslock, and Gaming Mode are not dimmable, so if they're on, you really know it. The software must be hacked since the instructions are not even close to being useful. Pretty...

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
