4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Inexpensive mechanical keyboard
Great matte surface finish
Good build quality
Great engineering
No stupid software or macros

Cons: Not pleased with actuation of some switches. All the switches on another of my keyboards are consistently clicky.
Included braided cord was not functional.
Red backplate is understandable (brand colors) but distracting

Other Thoughts: I had an issue with the braided cord and Rosewill was very helpful and responsive to my concerns. I will buy from this brand again.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome mechanical keyboard

Pros: I've been using this keyboard for about 6 months and so far have been very happy with it. The click response of the keys is excellent and helps me type faster than a generic membrane keyboard. I bought this to use at work to have a better keyboard, I still have an old IBM PS/2 keyboard at home that works great so I'm used to mechanical keyboards.

Cons: None

2 out of 5 eggsSigh. Should have listened to the comments

Pros: Great simple keyboard. Love the feel to it. Annoys the fiance while she sleeps. Just what I expected to get out of a mechanical keyboard without fancy macro buttons.

Cons: What annoys me most about regretting this purchase is that I know I should have listened to the reviews. And I knew it would be a keyboard that I connected and disconnected repeatedly. Within 6 months of use, the USB port started misbehaving. Within 9 months, one touch and it would disconnect. A year and a half now, I spend several minutes finagling with every time I move (I sit the keyboard in my lap since I don't have a desk) Now I'm stuck looking at spending another chunk of change on a new keyboard (when the keyboard itself is great).

Other Thoughts: If you think for one moment, "nah, I won't move my keyboard that much." or "Nah, those things in reviews never happen to me, it's only the angry ones who exaggerate in reviews that are leaving these USB comments," stop right there and find another keyboard. This is not a 5% chance of occurrence, this is a design flaw of the keyboard that can't be avoided.

4 out of 5 eggsVery nice keyboard for the money; beware the mini-USB connection!

Pros: This keyboard has outstanding tactile response. The positive feeling of the keys is great and makes me a better typist. I actually look forward to working with it. The construction is solid and backed by a very substantial weight.

Cons: The USB connector is poorly made. I had to reseat it three times to get it work. Now, the keyboard seems to respond and then seem to die. This is one day into ownership. I'm afraid to ask to send this back because I will be stuck paying shipping. I wish I read the reviews here first as it seems others have had troubvle with it too.

Other Thoughts: Maybe you should opt for the newer version. Perhaps they fixed the USB issue.

3 out of 5 eggsAfter 9 months - USB dead

Pros: Great keyboard with satisfying response with awesome clickiness and feel.

Cons: USB connection at keyboard (mini) died rendering keyboard useless. I tried to use other mini USB cables with no success. I'm using my backup sidewinder X4 for this review

Other Thoughts: It is a great keyboard. I've submitted RMA directly through Rosewill. I hope they approve RMA and repair/replace. If not, I'm fairly handy with a soldering iron.

5 out of 5 eggsHelped reduce fatigue

Pros: As a software developer, I would spend 10-12 hours a day typing code and the design of the switches helped reduce the amount of finger fatigue after those long code sessions. Originally I bought this to replace my old Buckling spring model m keyboard. The cherry MX blue switches on the rosewill uses less force to actuate the switch over the buckling spring keyboard.

Cons: Like many people, I suffered the failure in the usb connector on the keyboard.

Other Thoughts: I was able to get 2 years out of this before the connector failed and the letters on the keys have actually faded so it was time to retire the old 9000. Since writing this review, I have selected a Rosewill 9100 as a replacement which seems to have addressed many of the issues seen with the previous model.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Solid feeling.
Excellent switches
Good feel
Would be super reliable and a long lasting keyboard if not for a fatal design flaw with the cable connection

Cons: mini usb port inevitably fails regardless of how careful you are. Mine lasted a couple years before failing at least.

Other Thoughts: I like the keyboard a lot which is why I'm so sad that the usb connector has become loose resulting in the keyboard being unreliable.

My fiancee bought the keyboard for me as a gift from newegg.

1 out of 5 eggsNice, but has a flaw

Pros: Feels great, clean and simple looks.

Cons: the mini usb to ps2 cable gave out after four months, I'm now on the second cable that the keyboard comes with. Pretty disappointing as I love the keyboard, and as this problem is pretty widespread it looks like quality control should have seen this.

2 out of 5 eggsGood for a while

Pros: Loved the feel of the blue switches. Solid feeling keyboard

Cons: Just stopped working, caused by flimsy mini usb connector. Over time no matter how careful you are, this connector will start to wiggle and then it will fail. Bad design.
