4 out of 5 eggsWorth the price for sure!

Pros: Love the sleek look of the white on this keyboard, as well as the blue switches. I have always been a fan of blues. I own several boards, with browns, blacks, reds, and also one with greens.

If you are looking for a board that satisfies both gamers and typing enthusiasts, I am pretty sure this will suit you as I do a fair amount of both.

This board is an absolute pleasure to type on, however it required a couple modifications of my own, I will get to that in the "cons" section.

Cons: The first con I will mention is the external cable that connects both to a USB port in your rig, as well as a mini USB that connect into the keyboard itself, this makes the cord completely external so it is another piece to keep track of, but that should not be an issue.

However, some others with previous boards of the same model (older versions mind you) have complained that the soldering in the keyboard connection (Mini USB) is unstabvle and has a tendency to fail. I thought I would mention it, but personally I have had no such failure.

The only other con I will mention is the actual keycaps on this board. They are black which s fine, however the material they are made of is very slick and feels almost slippery to the touch as if there was a coating that prevents any sort of friction on your fingertips. I added my own tai hao doubleshots which fit PERFECTLY!!!. Just something you may want to consider if you pick up this board.

Other than that, AMAZiNG buy, and it is frequently used.

Other Thoughts: Worth picking up if you are looking for a nice first mech, or even if you are adding one to the collection.

Worth a look for sure!

5 out of 5 eggsPlease make tenkeyless brown version!

Pros: Best looking keyboard!

Cons: No tenkeyless brown option

Other Thoughts: I have the 9000 brown and 9000 blues. I'd buy a tenkeyless 9000i brown in a second!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Mechanical Keyboard

Pros: Great mechanical keyboard with Cherry MX Blue Keys. Does not have the extra M keys which is nice if you are not interested in them like myself. Nice white and black design, hard to find a white keyboard. Compact size is a plus if you don't have the space.

Cons: It is loud, but with Blue switches that is to be expected. No back lighting.

Other Thoughts: If you are going for a white look to your PC this is a solid choice. It does not have the flair as other mechanical keyboards, but that is preference and just know what you are getting with this and you will be happy. Purchased for my wife to go with her white PC look and I have tested myself.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Basic Mechanical Keyboard

Pros: Cherry MX Blue Switches, nice black and white design, solid build quality, decent price

Cons: No media keys or backlighting

Other Thoughts: I've been using this keyboard for nearly a year and a half and it's still a joy to type on. I've had no issues. This is a great choice for people who don't need anything fancy.

1 out of 5 eggsUsed for 3 months, and its already showing problems

Pros: I like how the keyboard has a solid feel to it. Its fast responses and living up to the blue switch name.

Cons: After using this keyboard for about 3 months in, the "ESC" key is starting to show problems and it is really disturbing me. I can not even play properly because of how that just one key is making my life feel miserable.
The "ESC" key does not goes down with a click like normal blue switches do. I needs a lot of effort to push the key down, and it takes time to rise back up (normally it would just pop back up in an instant). Imagine how not uniform it is compared to the other keys when I am playing a game.
Unless this is the only keyboard that is showing me problems, I would not recommend this if it is already showing problems at such a fast period of time.

1 out of 5 eggsGood while it lasted

Pros: Worked good for the first couple months.

Cons: -First the usb to mini usb cable went bad after the first couple months. Had to replace the cable to make it work with usb.

-Couple months later that, one of the keys went bad. Verified with multiple keyboard testing software, cherry mx blue switch was bad.

Other Thoughts: I would look to a different company if your looking for a mechanical keyboard. Many companies have better customer service. Two separate things were wrong with this $90 keyboard. I wish Rosewill had better quality control.

I was thinking about getting the keyboard fixed but it would be to costly in time and money, I would rather buy another keyboard with a reputable manufacturer.

5 out of 5 eggsBest Investment Ever

Pros: - Cherry MX Blues
- Price ($40 at the time)
- Decently solid construction

Cons: - Slightly creaks when twisting keyboard edges aka not a solid, stiff construction (cheaper plastics but not a big deal)

Other Thoughts: I love the cherry mx blue clicky sound and its great for typing. Some people thinks its too loud. Unbeatable price after rebate. I also own Ducky Shine 3 Cherry MX black at 3x the price.

5 out of 5 eggsOutstanding entry-level mechanical keyboard

Pros: This is my first mechanical keyboard. I've always thought about buying one, but goodness, they're so expensive! Over Black Friday, Newegg dropped the price of this keyboard to the lowest level I've seen for any mechanical keyboard, so I figured I had nothing to lose by trying it.

+The tactile feedback you receive from pressing each key is truly something that has to be experienced firsthand. I feel as though it's increased my typing speed.

+On conventional rubber dome keyboards, you have to press the key down all the way in order for it to work. With these mechanical switches, you only need to press keys down halfway. If you do a lot of typing, your fingers will thank you for not having to press as hard!

+The audible "click" of this keyboard's Cherry Blue mechanical switches isn't nearly as loud as I thought it would be. The clicking helps accuracy, just as the tactile feedback does, and it makes typing FUN!

+The white body looks sharp. Even the Rosewill logo in the upper-right corner is tastefully done. It's a good thing the white version went on sale - the black one must look incredibly drab by comparison.

+No silly extras like added USB ports to drive up the price. This is a typist's keyboard, plain and simple.

+You can repair this keyboard; it isn't just another piece of throwaway junk. The key caps, key switches, and cable are all replaceable.

Cons: -Learning to type without bottoming out the keys (pressing the keys down all the way) takes some getting used to.

-Typing on conventional rubber dome keyboards will feel mushy and generally unpleasant. As another reviewer stated, if you don't want your eyes to be opened, s

Other Thoughts: My only other experience with mechanical keyboards occurred roughly 3-4 years ago, when I briefly owned a keyboard with Cherry Brown mechanical switches. I like the Cherry Blues much better! You'll love their click.

Rosewill sourced this keyboard from the same OEM that manufactures the Filco Majestouch keyboards - so the feedback you read about those keyboards can be said to apply to this one.

I hesitated to buy this keyboard at its normal price because I wasn't sure if it was worth the investment. Trust me: it's worth it.
