Not the greatest, really.


The shift button only working when using more pressure than other keys is a turn off for me, to be honest. I simply can't give this anymore than three stars if this is how the board is supposed to be. On a lighter note, imagine if I was playing an...

Plenty of media keys, macros, programmable, etc. Very convenient and useful keyboard in the long run ; WASD and Arrow keys interchangeable with regular keys, which makes regular internet surfing easier

I'm not entirely sure if I have a defective product or it's common, but the space and shift button (left and right) only work when pressed fully. As in, for someone who types relatively quickly like me, I would have to use extra pressure when pressing...

Good keyboard


Blue light on the front of the keyboard is kinda tacky imho. would turn off if I could

Rubber keys are nice while gaming. Makes WASD very easy to find. Key action is good for a non-mechanical keyboard. Shortcut keys are generally pretty helpful

Programmable keys arent that programmable. I guess Logitech spoiled me

No special drivers required. All keys work great. Came with black keys to replace orange and tool to do it, and I did! Great buy, with free screen cleaning kit that was worth the price I paid for keyboard. Could not be any happier

Awesome Keyboard for $20


Overall a good keyboard for a average/ borderline hard core gamer. $20 Good for a cheap backup, but would not recommend for a hard core gamer unless you don't want to spend more than $20.

For $20 you cant go wrong ; Just what I needed to play Battlefield ; Light, but doesn't feel cheap ; The rubber keys are so awesome! Its so much easier to find the wasd keys without having look or search for them with your fingers ; Cool blue light...

Needs macro keys on left side instead of the internet keys ; Small backspace key drives me nuts, I keep hitting insert which usually messes up what I'm typing ; I bought this for battlefield because I use the keyboard to fly. Which works great, but...

Good keyboard


Feels pretty nice with soft touch. I've not had any issues with the keys having to be fully pressed to get results like others have complained about. the WASD and arrow keys are great to have the extra texture. Comes with replacement WASD to have...

I dropped an egg over the single spaced backspace. Also as mentioned I didn't realize the bottom had a blue cross lit up when purchased until it arrived. Would be nice to be able to change color or turn light off, however it isn't horribly bright. The...

Not to bad for the price.


All in al for the price I paid for this keyboard its not to bad, in fact I'm still using it at the time of this review. If I had to purchase another keyboard, I probable would look for a higher quality keyboard instead of going cheap.

Extremely responsive ; Cool lights ; Really like the textured WASD and arrow keys

Since I received the keyboard the shift key has been a little flakey on responding. You really only notice it when your playing a game that you need to keep it pressed down for run/walk

Great deal


For the sale price, its an unbeatable deal. Sure the keyboard isn't the highest build quality, but for the $ you are getting LOTS of features you would expect from a higher end keyboard. There is a blue light-up logo thingy on the bottom which you may...


Small backspace key and backslash key ; I cant get the 18 key rollover function to work (but its not a big deal)

Consumer review by:

Decent quality


Decent quality and feel. Not bad for the price. I hope it holds up. I've purchased other Rosewill products and they have all been great

Overall shape, but not bad
