3 out of 5 eggsNice Mechanical Keyboard; Lousy Software

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

Pros: Keyboard feels great.

Cons: Someone else already mentioned this, but it's worth repeating. In PC-mode, you can't change backlight color. You're stuck with purple. In gaming mode, window key is disabled. So far, I have not found a fix. C'mon Rosewill! Fix the darn software. Also, no rainbow mode, but that's probably a hardware limitation.

Other Thoughts: I'll probably open this thing up and rewire it.

3 out of 5 eggsGreat Keyboard.. For the most part

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

Pros: Has a good feel and a great sound. Easy to type on.

Cons: If you haven't noticed yet, on occassion when I hit the space bar, this keyboard will double space for some reason. I've only had the product for around 2 months, and this just started. Other than that, works great..

2 out of 5 eggsThe best value RGB keyboard for purple backlighting

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

Pros: Has RGB backlighting sometimes and seemingly nice keys

Cons: Cannot change the backlighting to anything other than purple unless you also want to disable the windows key at the same time.
Keys are not individually changeable, although this was as advertised.

Other Thoughts: Will update if I can manage to find the fix for such an easily remedied design flaw.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect

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

Pros: If you're geting your first mechanical keyboard and you dont want to break the bank , but want a quality keyboard ? This is the one to go for. Kailh blue switches feel really good even though they are a chineese brand instead of the german cherry MX switches. i've used both cant really feel much of a difference.

Cons: software , software , software . im sure this board has MANY capabilities being that it is RGB . still gets my 5 egg because it is a beautiful keyboard!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Keyboard

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

Pros: Very impressed with the tactile feel of the keyboard.
Its RGB so its very easy to select whatever color you want to display.
The software it comes with is light and doesn't eat up a bunch of ram or HD space when used. Comes with extra clear keys for gaming use.
Has a wrapped input cable which is about 5 feet long and seems very durable.

Cons: None that i can really think of. This is an 87 key keyboard so be mindful if you are use to having a number pad on the right side of your keyboard. Not really a con though to me.

Other Thoughts: Im using windows 10 and an ASUS ROG Maximums VIII motherboard and have no compatibility issues with it. It is my personal opinion that for the money this is a good keyboard for gaming and comes with good supporting software for key bindings and hot keys.

1 out of 5 eggspoor keyboard

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

Pros: looks great.
programmable LEDs makes for some great customization.
utility software to creating profiles is very nice.
can quickly switch between profiles with a hotkey
feel of keys is light and fast, very comfortable for typing.

Cons: these particular clone key switches are known to problematic. lots of duplicate key strokes occur because the debounce circuitry is not up for handling key switches with this level of chatter.

Other Thoughts: do not buy. you can get a much higher quality mechanical keyboard without LEDs for the same price, if typing is more important to you than pretty colors then you should stay away.

2 out of 5 eggsEhhh Nah.

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

Pros: Backlight, detachable USB cable, small footprint.

Cons: Lack of software support, one color for PC mode

Other Thoughts: I've owned this keyboard for about 7 months now and still no updated software, as of the time of this review. The software is very lacking and still does not provide the full use of the 16.8 million colors advertised. I mainly purchased this keyboard for the sub $100 pricepoint and full RGB backlighting. I've also noticed that some keys are not responding to a keystroke. This is totally random and is hard to reproduce on command. The software updates alone are enough to want to buy a different keyboard, especially if you wanted the full RGB features.

3 out of 5 eggsSo close, and yet...

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

Pros: Well made
Good feel
Mostly subtle branding
Almost fully functional on Mac OS

Cons: Can't completely escape the bright blue LEDs which wreak havoc on a person's circadian clock. This could easily be addressed, perhaps even in a software update.

Caps Lock indicator light doesn't work on Linux (true the manufacturer doesn't claim Linux compatibility, but come on.)

The key markings have been adjusted to sit right over the individual LEDs in each switch, which makes some keys hard to find.

The spacebar has an unnecessary RGB80 mark that compromises the otherwise clean esthetic. That mark is absent in many of the promotional pictures.

Other Thoughts: I bought this keyboard after extensive research and careful consideration. I bought it for typing. I wanted a mechanical keyboard for the usual reasons, and I needed it to be backlit, so that I can work in a dim room after dark. I haven't gamed for decades and wanted a professional looking keyboard that would either look nice, or not stand out. Most current backlit keyboards use blue light, either exclusively, or as a component of white light. I chose this one because the color of the LEDs can be set to eliminate blue light altogether (by setting it to red or yellow), or so I thought. That is important because blue light confuses the brain and even brief exposures can prevent a person from getting to sleep.

Unfortunately, the keyboard's default "PC" mode is overwhelmingly blue. In order to use a sleep/safe color like red, one must put the keyboard into "Game" mode, and game mode is always accompanied by a needless and absolutely glaring blue indicator LED that does not appear to be alterable--unlike the keyswitch LEDs, the indicator LEDs do not appear to be multi-color, and if they are, the software provides no access to that control. So, as this keyboard is currently outfitted, you either 1) have backlighting off, 2) have blue light pouring from the keys themselves, or 3) have blue light pouring from a single, utterly unnecessary, extremely bright blue indicator light.

Rosewill could mostly solve this problem by changing the color profile setting software to allow the user to chose a color for the default "PC" mode rather than assume that default mode should be blue. Then a person could chose red, and not get stuck with the blue "Gaming" indicator light as a consequence. As it stands, The only solutions are to use "Game" mode, and then place something over the LED indicator, or open it up and disable it, and neither of those should be needed on a $100+ keyboard.

Finally, on Linux, the capslock indicator does not function, though the capslock key works fine. I can't imagine this would be two difficult to fix, and in so doing Rosewill would gain Linux compatibility at thee hardware level, Mac hardware compatibility is already there.

What isn't compatible is the software, which really wouldn't matter if the default setup was a just a little better thought out. Perhaps that isn't true for gamers who intend to set macros, but for coders and typists, you can chose one of 5 colors and two brightnesses without ever opening the software. If only blue could be turned off completely, it would be an excellent keyboard.
