4 out of 5 eggsRK 500

Pros: It performs very well, and is a pleasure to type on.


The major complaint that people have about it is the smaller shift key on the left side of the board. Rosewill also added a "/" key to its right. I can see why they don't like it, but I don't mind personally.

Overall, the keyboard is exceptionally responsive, quiet, and comfortable. Highly recommend for people who use the right hand shift key, NOT people who use the left shift key.

It also has a solid feel to it. It is completely plastic, but it is a tough plastic. I really appreciate the grippy feet on the bottom. The keyboard does not budge when typing.

Cons: The weird shift key on the left hand side does seem to present a problem when using it. This can be remedied by using the right hand shift key. I am used to using the right hand shift key, so it was no problem.

Other Thoughts: There is a video of this product on the internet.

2 out of 5 eggsRosewill ruined the layout

Pros: I have the older "normal" layout version of these keyboards and I love it, wish I could get more. This newer key layout change makes no sense, there was no advantage to making the shift key smaller and adding a slash key where it does not belong. To further add insult to injury they have raised the price and made the product worse --- PLEASE ROSEWILL, BRING BACK THE ORIGINAL NORMAL KEY LAYOUT -- one rule any successful manufacturer should know is when the customers find something they like and want to buy more of don't just make changes for the sake of change - IF IT WORKS AND SELLS DONT MESS WITH IT-!!

Cons: Same as above, its hard to find a pro for a product that was fine to begin with but the manufacturer intentionally makes useless and unpopular changes to. Manufacturers seem to do this constantly, they feel they must make changes just because its been the same for too long -- SOMETIMES THE SAME THING IS WHAT WE WANT-!

Other Thoughts: Why do manufacturers constantly do this ??? We consumers find a product we love and want to buy more of but even though sales are good they intentionally make stupid changes to a popular design with no call for it --- I think its because they don't want the cheaper keyboard to interfere with sales of pricier keyboards. Well it doesn't work in my case, there is a market for cheap keyboards, in my case they sometimes get wet and short out which is my fault - but I will still buy the same keyboard again because I like the way it types and because of its price and I know it may happen again and no big loss of it gets wet again. I wont buy an expensive keyboard for this application because I know its likely to get wet at some point. Again put the keys back the way they are supposed to be and I will buy more - but not this design. You will find similar comments of this type keyboard on A--zon.com. I rest my case.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat slim keyboard!!

Pros: Great small keyboard
Very small keys easy to stroke from key to key
Bought this keyboard on sale so it was a great deal!

Cons: NONE

Other Thoughts: To the people complaining that the left shift key is smaller. Did you even look at the pictures before you bought this keyboard?

This is a SLIM designed keyboard meaning they had to make sacrifices somewhere.

After using it for a few hours its easy to get passed the smaller shift key and i do not regret this buy. i have bought several things from Rosewill From Cases to power supplies keyboards and wireless gear. so far everything has been exactly as described and reliable.

Rosewill sells great stuff and i will continue to purchase items from them FIRST as needed.

2 out of 5 eggs\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\

Pros: -\low profile keys
-\responsive tying
-\9mostly\0 good layout

Cons: -\reduced shift key
-\unessiarty backslash button
-\makes typing difficult

Other Thoughts: \i wrote this review using this keyboard. \if you notice some irregularities in my typing, it's because of the bizarre choice to shorten the left shift button and add a backslash.

\i've resquested a refund from the manufacturer.

1 out of 5 eggsCheap Keyboard for a Cheap Price

Pros: No plastic feet to break off.

Cons: There is an extra key between the shift and Z making the shift key smaller and harder to use. When trying to copy/past or capitalize in a hurry my text ends up looking like this\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\a. Also the painted on key symbols ware very easily. I have only had my keyboard 2 days and already the asdw keys are fading.

1 out of 5 eggsHorrible Shift Key placement

Pros: n/a

Cons: They replaced the left shift key with a backslash key

Other Thoughts: This keyboard is simply unusable for anyone who is used to a standard keyboard. Where the left shift key should be, they put a tiny shift key and a backslash key. No one in my family has been able to use this keyboard successfully, we just can't get used to that backslash key being where we naturally think the shift key should be. Whenever we try to type anything with this keyboard, we just have backslashes all over the place.
