Major flaw ruins otherwise perfect keyboard
This review is from: Rosewill Micro RK-9000 BL Aluminum MechanicalKeyboard, Cherry Blue MX switch, 32-bit ARM processor, 128KB on-chip memory, Swappable Key Placement for Different OSes
Pros: Very clean look even with stock keycaps. Its a properly executed 60% keyboard. The bottom right is slightly unusual but easy to get used to and makes pretty good sense when you think about it. Everything else i like about this board is just keyboard preference, if this type of board is what you're into you will like this one.
Cons: Major problem with this board is its bottom metal edge. The lines that look so nice also create a sharp edge for your thumb to rub against. I put tape along the edge to soften it but it seems like a huge oversight on rosewills part. not as important but another detracting point is the odd layout makes replacement key caps more difficult to source
Other Thoughts: I am on the fence between taking the board apart and spraying it with a rubberized material and filing the edges. I dont want to return it because i do like the key layout. I dont use a wrist pad, if you do you might not have the problem i do.
