4 out of 5 eggsSolid Mechanical Keyboard at a solid price.

Pros: Cherry MX switches
Solid even back-lighting
Nice wrist rest
Included keycap puller, and orange WASD and arrow keys.

Orange keys do not illuminate as well as the original keys.

1 out of 5 eggsCrap

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

Pros: Nothing

Cons: Complete crap. Bought at half price less than 2 months ago. Went to bed one night and it worked fine. Next morning it didn't work anymore. Wife threw the packaging away so I can't return it. Waste of money. I'm going back to Logitech on my next kb.

2 out of 5 eggsWorks great, but for limited time.

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

Pros: - LED backlit keys
- lots of macro keys
- smooth keystroke with that satisfying click each time

Cons: - I have had this 18 months and its now dying. The cable where it connects to the keyboard is very cheap. It only connects now if the cord is pulling downward
- has to be unplugged and plugged back in if not in use for 30 or more minutes
- hand rest is cheap and held on with 2 tiny plastic clips that break

Other Thoughts: For the money skip this keyboard and go with Corsair.

1 out of 5 eggsDied

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

Pros: Died after 18 months of use. Not abused, no apparent reason. Cables are intact from the USB to the keyboard. Keystrokes are not being recognized and the LED's won't turn on.

Cons: Nice feeling, very clicky.

Other Thoughts: If you're going to spend $130 on a keyboard you'd expect to get several years of use out of it. Mine died after 18 months of use and the warranty is only good for 12 months. I'll update my review if I hear from the manufacturer

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing keyboard

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

Pros: -Well built keyboard, very sturdy and durable
-Simple, not over the top design like some gaming keyboards
-Authentic Cherry MX Blue switches feel great
-2 USB slots are great if you need extra plugs, which I do since the USB slots in my laptop are occupied by the mouse and laptop cooler
-Amazing looking LED matches my Logitech Proteus Core
-Pretty budget for such an amazing keyboard. I got it for about $100 CAD plus tax
-Great detachable, comfortable wrist support
-I love the LED modes, especially the breathing one (I make the keyboard and my mouse breathe and looks awesome!)
-Perfect size for my desk, not too wide like most keyboards

Cons: -Not much of a con here, but personally, i t took me a while to transition from a rubber dome to a mechanical Cherry MX Blue switch keyboard
-Software is terrible, but I don't even use the software because I don't play a lot of games that use a lot of buttons, and when I do, I just use the extra buttons on my Proteus Core mouse
-For me, the spacebar was a little harder to press than every other key on the board, but I got used to it after a couple of weeks
-Would prefer if the caps lock, num lock LED were a different color than green (perhaps red? or blue? idk personal pref. I guess)

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.

4 out of 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.
