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.

4 out of 5 eggsMechanical Keyboard

Pros: This is a mechanical keyboard with clicky BLUE Cherry MX switches. The pros are increased tactile response when pressing keys. It also makes a clicking sound when the key is pressed. These are all pros to me. I specifically wanted the clicking sound. You can get mechanical switches without the click if you buy a keyboard with BROWN or CLEAR Cherry MX switches. For me the tactile response, and more precise actuation than the rubber dome switches are very important to comfortable and efficient typing. Also, I have had this keyboard for nearly 5 years and all the keys still work as well as they did on day one. The text on the WASD keys is starting to fade, but the switches under them are as responsive and accurate as ever. The 50 newton press strength means that the keys don't generally activate by accident when I fat finger the keys. So, if you tend to type heavily this keyboard will do well for you.

Cons: The version of this keyboard that I have is the one with the full size USB connector. I have no idea why the company would have switched to using a mini-USB connector. Do computers even have Mini-USB connectors? Maybe they did that so that you can use it with tablets and smartphones? I would urge the company to change back to the full size USB connectors. They are much more suitable for a keyboard and will not lead to your customers having problems with the USB connector.I took off an egg because they are using mini-USB now.

Other Thoughts: The reason I even wrote this review is because I am looking for a new keyboard, and ran across this listing. This one is the one that I have now and it is working perfectly still, but I am looking to switch to a keyboard with GREEN Cherry MX switches in it. The GREEN switches have an even higher 80 newton press strength. The reason that I want to go up is that I do tend to fat finger a lot and I would prefer that the keyboard require more deliberate presses from me to activate the keys. (Also I find that the higher the press strength the more comfortable it is for me to use. Just my personal preference.)

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Sturdy build. Everything about the keyboard is solid. Comes with two braided cables, one for ps2 and one for usb.
The rubber feet on this thing are insanely good at holding the keyboard down. Once you've found the perfect spot, no amount of keymashing will force you to reposition.

Cons: None that I've encountered.
The keyboard has gone through two months of various gaming, sc2, battlefield, league etc. Have not noticed any oddities or malfunctions. Solid performance.

Other Thoughts: No flashy lights, but if you wanted that sort of thing there's another model with that.

3 out of 5 eggsWeak mini USB ports

Pros: The nice thing about this keyboard is the blue switches. They feel great and once you get used to them there is simply no substitute for them.

You also get two cables to choose from: USB to mini USB on one cable (which gets you 6 Key Rollover) or PS2 to mini USB which gets you N Key rollover (basically you can hit every key at once)

The keyboard itself is pretty solid and feels rather heavy compared to the average rubber dome keyboard.

Cons: That mini USB port on the keyboard is weak. From the day I got it, that USB cable would wiggle just a bit. I avoided moving it for as long as I could because I had heard that the mini USB connection was weak.

Well, here I am a year later writing this review and the keyboard started acting up. It would act like it was unplugged and plugged back in... I would have to reach for the cable and wiggle it to get it to go back on and then finally the whole mini USB connection broke off inside the keyboard.

I loved this keyboard while it lasted, but that mini-USB connection is a deal breaker. I would have avoided this keyboard had I known this would happen.

Other Thoughts: It might be possible to fix it if you're handy with a soldering iron but I don't know. I don't really want to have to open the thing up and I might just find that it's impossible to fix
