1 out of 5 eggsExpensive keyboard that was just $0.05 short of perfection

This review is from: Rosewill RK-9000RE - Mechanical Keyboard with Cherry MX Red Switches

Pros: Great keyboard, very responsive with no nonsense layout and looks

Cons: I can't believe that they couldn't have spent another $0.05 and just hot glued the usb receiver on this keyboard. It broke after a couple of years of use and I had to resolder the USB port back on and hot glued gunned it so that it wouldn't move anymore, and honestly thats all it took.

Will never purchase anything from Rosewill again because of how much they cut corners with this keyboard.

1 out of 5 eggsbroken usb port

This review is from: Rosewill RK-9000RE - Mechanical Keyboard with Cherry MX Red Switches

Pros: good keyboard when it's not broken. What you'd expect for a mechanical.

Cons: Breaks if the usb is plugged in the wrong way or removed the wrong way. Can be salvageable if you know how to solder.

Other Thoughts: Many cheap electronics have poorly soldered usb connections. They will break after few inserts/removals. Only use these equipment if you do not plan to move them or tape the plug to the device so you don't accidentally put stress on the usb connection.

Here's the standard RMA response even if you manage to break the usb port on an electronic sold on Newegg within warranty:

"I sincerely apologize for the issue. Due to the fact that the item was damaged during installation on your end, we are no longer able to accept it back for a return. If we accept it back for a return, it would be a complete loss to our company. Thank you for your patience and support on this issue. "

1 out of 5 eggsDefective keyboard. Won't make right.

This review is from: Rosewill RK-9000RE - Mechanical Keyboard with Cherry MX Red Switches

Pros: Was good, but does not matter when it fails. IT WILL FAIL.

Cons: Keyboard failed as will all these keyboards sold. The reason being a fault USB connector that all of these keyboards have. They will all fail over time, just depends how much you unplug your USB.

They will not replace because it has been 3 years since original purchase even though I have had to have it replaced 1 time during that 3 year period.

4 out of 5 eggslove it

This review is from: Rosewill RK-9000RE - Mechanical Keyboard with Cherry MX Red Switches

Pros: Increased my wife's typing speed.
Takes a pounding from gaming teenagers.
The USB cable is sturdy compared to other keyboard cables.
However the USB connector on keyboard is the weakness with this keyboard as of 2012.

Cons: The USB connector on the keyboard PCB broke at the solder joints.
Had to repair by soldering USB cable wires directly to PCB and add strain relief to cable.

Other Thoughts: Other than the USB connector, this keyboard takes punishment and is study in design. Some think it noisy compared to other keyboards. I came here to buy another keyboard but Newegg is out of stock. If Rosewill mechanically strengthens the USB connector design than I would give it 5 eggs all day long.

2 out of 5 eggsBad usb port

This review is from: Rosewill RK-9000RE - Mechanical Keyboard with Cherry MX Red Switches

Pros: Nice Keys
Easy to use Spacebar
Easily cleanable
Has a numpad

Cons: After 2.5 years of use I've experienced spotty connection the last 6 months.
And just after readjusting the cable the port has failed and fallen back into the encasement and is now unusable.

2 out of 5 eggsWorked for 2 years

This review is from: Rosewill RK-9000RE - Mechanical Keyboard with Cherry MX Red Switches

Pros: Cherry MX switches

Cons: After 2 years of use, several individual keys stopped working. USB connection was not very good. Based on other user reviews, lifespan seems to be at 2 years.

2 out of 5 eggsUSB problems

This review is from: Rosewill RK-9000RE - Mechanical Keyboard with Cherry MX Red Switches

Pros: worked great for 2.5 years, then started to break down

Cons: after 3 years of use, usb started to lose connection. any little movement of keyboard would cause it to stop working, would have to wiggle wiring for 10 minutes to get it going again. the keyboard was kept in good shape, barely left my desk
this is a common problem with these keyboards, after opening the keyboard, you can see that the USB port was never secured to the circuit board and was only held in place by the tiny wires

Other Thoughts: spent $90 for a keyboard to barely last 3 years

2 out of 5 eggsupdated review.

This review is from: Rosewill RK-9000RE - Mechanical Keyboard with Cherry MX Red Switches

Pros: well, it lasted just over 2 years, and worked well until then.

Cons: shortly after my original review, i started having some issues with the keyboard being completely unresponsive. it would take several seconds to start responding again, or sometimes would only respond after i replug it in.

4 out of 5 eggsnice keyboard

This review is from: Rosewill RK-9000RE - Mechanical Keyboard with Cherry MX Red Switches

Pros: been a fantastic keyboard for over two years now. (original purchase date 6/5/2012) exactly as advertised, and no keys have even started going bad.

im a nerd that spends at LEAST 6 hours a day on my pc, so its holding up quite well.

Cons: the reason i didnt give this 5 stars is because of the usb connector to the keyboard. when i bought this keyboard, i figured the people saying the usb connector was bad were people that were constantly replugging it for whatever reason.

however, i have not once removed the usb connector, and it still seems to be incredibly weak, the connection is loose, and you can see this in the num/caps/scroll lock lights, just touching the cable will make it flicker, or get bright, or nearly turn off completely. even just slightly moving the keyboard has the same effect.

keep in mind the keyboard has in fact worked the entire time, and this issue has never caused any problems at all, which is why i still gave it 4 stars, i just feel uneasy about it and wish the connection was a little stronger.

Other Thoughts: i would still buy another one if this one ever died, if i could find it on sale. the price seems to have gone up since i bought mine, but it might have been on sale, 66 dollars at the time.

im not entirely sure if they have fixed the usb problem since then, but it is possible.

5 out of 5 eggsA brilliant keyboard for the price point

This review is from: Rosewill RK-9000RE - Mechanical Keyboard with Cherry MX Red Switches

Pros: This keyboard met and exceeded all of my expectations. I got it on sale, only paying $64 for it at the time (this was in November 2012). Since then, it's worked perfectly for me - as an 8+ hour per day user, I've been pleasantly surprised at its durability. The keycaps still are very clearly printed, and there are no mechanical issues whatsoever. After one year, every switch is still in great shape - just like the day I unboxed it.

As a pretty hardcore gamer (lots of DotA and StarCraft 2), I put this keyboard through a lot and it's handled everything I've thrown at it with no issues at all.

Cons: The caps/num/scroll lock LED's work TOO well. At night, I can't look down at my keyboard lest I be completely blinded.

Other Thoughts: I don't know whether I got lucky or whether I just abuse my keyboard less than the negative reviewers, but I have literally had zero issues with this keyboard. I would recommend it without hesitation.
