Nothing Special Here


I should have saved my money for a keyboard that lights up, since I like to game at night. Other than the rubberized keys, this keyboard doesn't really offer me anything special in the way of gaming that my old standard USB keyboard did not.

The WASD and UP DOWN LEFT RIGHT keys are rubberized and texturized for a nice feel. There are tons of programmable keys and options and all that good stuff

Backspace key is tiny. This bugs me more than I ever thought it would

A Feature-rich Travesty.


If you ever wanted a poster child as to why dome membrane keyboards are loathed, this would be the keyboard to get. Like just about everything Rosewill, you truly never know what you're going to get. I had a scissor switch keyboard from them, it was...

A lot of features that would be potentially of great use ; Those rubberized keys definitely feel grippy ; Technically, macros and media keys work when successfully pressed ; The included key puller is nice

Every. Single. Key. is horrible. You have a 50/50 chance of the keyboard registering a key press if you don't completely 100% forcefully bottom out on each press ; A super special nomination for the space bar. It is completely useless if you don't hit...

Works ; Goes with my color scheme

Space bar isn't the best ; Backspace too small ; Slides around too easily ; Isn't sold for a dollar

Good Product-Works Great!


The pros of this keyboard is that you get what you pay for. All the keys are customizable. The wasd and arrow keys come with a different feel to them, but if you don't like them, Rosewill sends regular keys to switch them out with the keyboard (comes...

Sometimes when you hit the space button while typing (never have this issue while gaming) it won't register ; The wasd and arrow special keys make my fingers sweat and sometimes it's difficult to play because they slide off

Love this keyboard



I love this keyboard. I purchased my first, over a year ago. Its held up very well. I was currently looking for a new and expensive one. But seen that this one was on sale again. So now I have two of these keyboards, and have no regrets. Also the Keys...

Very Durable ; Cheap ; Great for gaming ; Fully programmable

very good for the price

cheap ; orange keys that can be replace easily and very visible

too little backspace keys ; receive it with the left arrow key sticked, because it is an down arrows installed at the wrong place(just to turn the key a quarter turn and it works good but the arrow simbol is not in the good direction)

Its a keyboard and it works


They tricked me into paying more for the "Free" HDMI cable which i don't use

Rubber keys feel nice ; Its a keyboard not to fancy

BSOD when i plugin.....(most likely drivers)(-.5 egg) ; Sleep and power button get annoying when using on lap(-1 egg) ; Has pause and play but no fast forward or back(-.5 egg
