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.

1 out of 5 eggsjust my experience first time with a roswell

Pros: full sized basic keyboard that was pretty cheap, black friday, for being mechanical. also had a metal chassis which gave it girth so it didnt budge when you had it on a desk.

Cons: stopped working.

Other Thoughts: during a game, the keyboard just stopped working. i tried plugging it into another computer, but results were the same. i dont know what the problem is.

3 out of 5 eggsIt was working until it wasn't

Pros: This keyboard was absolutely brilliant and glorious. Great price for a mechanical keyswitch, and the design was sturdy*

Cons: See the asterisk in the pros? Yeah, that's because, like everyone else in the reviews, it stopped working, because the man somewhere deep in a Chinese prison couldn't properly solder a USB-B plug to the PCB.

Other Thoughts: Like I said, this keyboard was brilliant until that solder gave out. Someone with a steady hand could probably re-solder it on, and be perfectly fine. I almost caught myself on fire last time i soldered, so I'm shopping a different brand now as far as keyboards go.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Keyboard

Pros: Extremely sturdy.
First keyboard I have owned to withstand my pounding of the keys while programming, light gaming, and writing papers for school.
Classic Clickity Clack sound :D!
Would highly recommend this keyboard if Cherry MX-Blue switches are your switch of choice.

Cons: Hefty. But that is not a bad thing.

Other Thoughts: All these other people seem to have an issue with the micro usb port on the keyboard since the cable is removable. I have yet to see any symptoms from such, or any where else on the keyboard. I would recommend this keyboard in a heart beat to anyone looking for a nice mechanical keyboard.

Make sure you know what type of mechanical Cherry MX switch you like before buying a keyboard! Rosewill offers a great selection of different switch types, so you should be able to find this great keyboard with the switch of your liking.
