1 out of 5 eggsOnly lasted 1 year.

This review is from: Rosewill Apollo - RK-9100xB - Mechanical Keyboard with Blue Backlight

Pros: its a mechanical key board, blue leds are perfect

Cons: 2 days ago when i got home from work my keyboard wouldn't turn on, its dead. im so mad. i loved this keyboard but with it dying with in a year i won't buy this one again. $150 keyboard should not die so soon.

Other Thoughts: if my keyboard didn't die so quick, this would be the only keyboard i would ever purchase. but after it dying i have to stay away and look for a more reliable mechanical keyboard

3 out of 5 eggsRK-9100xB

This review is from: Rosewill Apollo - RK-9100xB - Mechanical Keyboard with Blue Backlight

Pros: Beautiful, heavy, durable, solid and professional looking.

Cons: It was difficult for some reason, I can't figure out, for my computer to accept the drivers and software that came with the keyboard. Furthermore, at first, the mouse jack didn't want to work with my mouse. Both of those issues appear to be resolved, but other than reinstalling over and over again and starting my computer up over and over again until it finally took, I can't say I did anything to fix it. But it now works. However, the one thing that doesn't work properly all of the time is the fact that the led lights don't go off every time I turn the computer off. About half of the time the lights stay on and half of the time the lights stay on. Can someone explain that to me? It's just weird. Other than that I love the keyboard.

Other Thoughts: I feel like something that cost almost $100 should work ever time all of the time. On the other hand I do love the keyboard because when it works properly it's just beautiful. I think more time should have been given to get the software right before selling it. Unfortunately, that's par for the course in today's world isn't it. That is the reason I couldn't give it 5 eggs.

This review is from: Rosewill Apollo - RK-9100xB - Mechanical Keyboard with Blue Backlight

Pros: This keyboard is great. I love the backlit switches. It makes everything easier to see at night. I also love that you can turn off the window's button as you game so you don't accidentally hit it. It is very clicky and loud! But I'm sure most of us like that satisfying click.

Cons: Would have given it a 5 star if the wrist-wrest wasn't so hard to put on, but I'm fine without using a wrist-wrest anyway.

5 out of 5 eggsRK-9100xB is perfect for me

This review is from: Rosewill Apollo - RK-9100xB - Mechanical Keyboard with Blue Backlight

Pros: This keyboard is absolutely amazing, I love the cherry mx blue switches in the keyboard, the feel of the keyboard is perfect, the quality is very high quality, verys like a brick when i hold it because it was built so well.
overall this keyboard is a perfect size, its slightly smaller than my logitech G110 but it fits the size that I wanted

Cons: there is nothing wrong with this keyboard, is this a bad thing?

Other Thoughts: I recomend this keyboard to anyone that is able to invest into such a perfect device

2 out of 5 eggswhat a shame

This review is from: Rosewill Apollo - RK-9100xB - Mechanical Keyboard with Blue Backlight

Pros: The good:
---solid, clicky, backlight, macro keys and volume control
---nice and heavy
---came with a key-swapping tool so I could pull out keys without ruining them
---jacks for headphones and mic are neat.

Cons: The bad:
---keyboard drivers don't shut off the backlight all the time, unplugging it works but it was an inconvenience
---one thing I missed from my old Logitech G710+ was the volume wheel, and using function macro keys as a volume changer is inconvenient

the UGLY:
---keys had a tendency to stick out of the blue at random times every few weeks, never persisted, but worrying
---keyboard became defective after 3 months, see other thoughts for details

Other Thoughts: HARDWARE NOTES:
this review was typed on a logitech g15
this model was made to replace a logitech g710+ that lost its ctrl key due to wear and being a shoddy build.

as of this review the keyboard has become defective, no hardware damage was done to the keyboard, and the offending keys were the second row straight across:

q w e r t y u i o p [ ] \ and the numpad keys 7 8 9.

this is the reason why the overall rating is a 2- my g710+ lasted almost a year in comparison to this defect and will be requesting an RMA but I'm not sure I can trust this model anymore.

Hopefully I can find another keyboard with backlighting and blue switch keys.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent KB

This review is from: Rosewill Apollo - RK-9100xB - Mechanical Keyboard with Blue Backlight

Pros: - Cherry MX Blue switches provide good tactile and auditory feedback
- Adjustable lighting (I keep it turned off, because it's distracting)
- Solid build, doesn't move about on my desk like cheap plastic keyboards I've used in the past

Cons: - Some of the key labels are laid out oddly; namely the number and punctuation keys. Their alternate (shift+) character is listed next to the number/character, as opposed to above it, as most other keyboards have it. I imagine this is to illuminate both characters as evenly as possible. That leads me to the next con...

- Lighting is not distributed well on some keys. Function keys for example: their secondary function appears under the F# text, but the LED underneath the key is located toward the top of the key; thus the bottom text does not illuminate as well as the top text. Another example is the Windows key, where the Windows symbol is centered on the key (as opposed to the other text-based keys which have the text on top), so the bottom half of the symbol is not as brightly lit as the top half; likewise with the Context Menu button. This isn't necessarily a factor in my rating, just something I noticed which adds to the existing distraction of even having the backlight on in the first place.

- The included software (generically named "Mechanical Gaming Keyboard" is horribly user-unfriendly. Luckily I don't have a need for any macros.

- Occasionally, not very often, a key's switch will apparently get stuck. While typing, a key will just begin repeating indefinitely until I press that key again to stop it, like while typing "Hello" I might get "Hellooooooooooo". This is generally just a nuisance that results in needing to delete the extra text.

2 out of 5 eggsStopped working out of nowhere after a few months

This review is from: Rosewill Apollo - RK-9100xB - Mechanical Keyboard with Blue Backlight

Pros: Worked fine while it worked

Cons: Stopped working after about 3 months for me (never spilled on it or anything)

Other Thoughts: I'm sure this was just some bad luck and nothing really on the companies part, but after a few months I booted up my PC and it was just not working. The LED's didn't come on, and the keys that did work were typing numbers instead of letters. I hope I can still get an RMA on this, as it was a really good keyboard up until it worked.
