1 out of 5 eggsNice but lack of software features is a real letdown

This review is from: Rosewill RGB80 - 16.8 Million Color Illuminated Mechanical Gaming Keyboard

Pros: So far, the build quality and switches seem to be pretty good (with the exception of a color going out on my X key)

Cons: My "x" key's green has completely burnt out a few months into use.

The software is one of the worst things I have ever seen. Been awaiting the next release of that for almost 8 months now. I'm starting to think it will NEVER be released. You can still only choose 256 colors, not 16.8 million as advertised.

Other Thoughts: This is the first negative review I have ever written. I really expected a software update by now.

1 out of 5 eggsWaiting almost a year for software

This review is from: Rosewill RGB80 - 16.8 Million Color Illuminated Mechanical Gaming Keyboard

Pros: Construction adequate for the $99 I paid. Switches are satisfactory. LEDs are bright.

Cons: Software is cr#p. You should be able to program individual keys.

Other Thoughts: There's a lot of cr#ppy software for peripherals. This is just another example. This could be a bargain if the software was adequate.

2 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: Rosewill RGB80 - 16.8 Million Color Illuminated Mechanical Gaming Keyboard

Pros: If you are looking for a compact keyboard this is for you

Cons: Upon installation of the application software the keyboard no longer functioned. I contacted Rosewill tech support which turned out to be useless and I was told that I can still do functions manually and was asked if I wanted a replacement. The keybord functions after I uninstalled the application software which is useless since that was a selling point.

2 out of 5 eggsmalfunctioning "S" key

This review is from: Rosewill RGB80 - 16.8 Million Color Illuminated Mechanical Gaming Keyboard

Pros: The size and build quality seem nice out of the box - The Kailh blue switches have a nice distinctive sound when typing. Out of the box the LED's work well. Very bright and plenty of default colors to choose from.

Cons: I'm hoping this is an isolated incident but the "S" key is malfunctioning on the board that I received. It double types often (ss) and doesn't type at all often. Very disappointed with this because the previous reviews were fairly positive.

The customizing software is garbage - they need to rethink and update it ASAP.

Other Thoughts: If this thing was working as intended It would have been a great bargain (purchased on sale) but since one of the primary keyss Is broken I can't give it more than 2 stars.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat keyboard, highly recommend!!

This review is from: Rosewill RGB80 - 16.8 Million Color Illuminated Mechanical Gaming Keyboard

Pros: Pro's

-blue switches, feels like cherry MX
-bright LED's
-heavy with a good quality feel
-clicky!!!!!
-just about everything

I can't say more than.. I love this keyboard and recommend it to anyone that already owns mechanical keyboards or is making the switch. You won't be disappointed.

Cons: -no software update yet

Other Thoughts: I would still rate this 5 eggs either way, but it will be great once they finally put out a software update. I did contact Rosewill and was told there is no ETA yet. Otherwise, I found it easy to use and has many of the customizations you want, but nothing too fancy such as cascading LED designs like you'd see on the other RGB keyboards.

4 out of 5 eggsUPDATE the software!

This review is from: Rosewill RGB80 - 16.8 Million Color Illuminated Mechanical Gaming Keyboard

Pros: This keyboard is one of the better and cheaper keyboards out there and. I love all of the colors you can do with it. And i LOVE the clicks it makes from whenever you hit a key. But meh thats about it it doesn't do much you only get like 3 lighting effects and there pointless the only good one is the breathing mode and that is way to slow (i wish you could change the speed but noooo software just had to be trash )

Cons: But this keyboard cant be all good. the main reason that this keyboard is not the best is the software it is just trash complete trash. all you can do with it is change the colors and do some other pointless things.BUT I would like to see them put in more features into the lighting effects.

A mode i would like to see is having each key a different color (that would be awesome)

OH YA they said the software update would come out soon but it has been um like um ya know like 5 mouth.

Other Thoughts: If they could fix there software this keyboard would be the best on the market. It would be cheap and have good lighting effects

Another thing is they use kailh switches not blues but there the same

2 out of 5 eggsBroke after 3 months

This review is from: Rosewill RGB80 - 16.8 Million Color Illuminated Mechanical Gaming Keyboard

Pros: Quality switches with a satisfying feel. LED lights were beautiful while they worked. Solid construction and materials, especially the rubberized coating.

Cons: After 2 months I noticed the colors of the LED lights always had a greenish tint no matter the color setting I used. This was especially noticeable when the LEDs were set to white. About a month later the LEDs completely stopped working. I could not get them to work despite trying all the usual troubleshooting methods (reinstalling drivers, etc).

Now, the LEDs that indicate whether caps lock, num lock or scroll lock were active still worked though they never did change colors along with the rest of the keys, however I'm not sure if this is the intended behavior or not.

I am very disappointed because the LEDs, and the ability to control their colors, was advertised as a main feature of this keyboard.

3 out of 5 eggsEh.

This review is from: Rosewill RGB80 - 16.8 Million Color Illuminated Mechanical Gaming Keyboard

Pros: Compact. No 10-key pad. Responsive to touch.

Cons: Loud. Couldn't figure out how to change colors without disabling the windows key. No rocker switch for volume (have to use two hands with a function key). Only 2 settings for brightness.

Other Thoughts: Only had this for one day. Very compact board. Had a good feel for typing. But, could not quickly discern how the software worked. Could switch between gaming mode & PC mode... but all I wanted to do was change the color in PC mode... didn't seem to allow for that. But again... only had about an hour. Research the software instructions before buying.

4 out of 5 eggsAlright..Clicky as Clicky gets

This review is from: Rosewill RGB80 - 16.8 Million Color Illuminated Mechanical Gaming Keyboard

Pros: This is my first mech keyboard and part of my first PC build...

(If you like typewriters) VERY CLICKY
Vibrant Color mainly w/ the clear keys
They keys just seem to fit perfectly in my fingers granted I have generally medium sized hands
Very clicky

Cons: Very clicky...I did not know about the different color switches when I bought this KB so that is my fault...starting to love it tho\
Can't set certain keys to certain colors...Hope in update
Thought I would not miss the numeric pad....I do

Other Thoughts: Overall great keyboard has some weight which I like mainly since I game so I don't want it sliding around

Will give 5 stars once update comes out and hopefully adds where I can make my keyboard wave left to right rainbow style...or something just wanna play with the color mainly.....Every key a different color is what I wish for
