This review is from: Rosewill RK-9000 - Mechanical Keyboard - Cherry MX Blue Switches
Great keyboard. The cherry blue switches are really nice; took some getting used to, but I find it hard to go from work, where I keep this board, to home, where I use a standard rubber dome. Build quality is fine, though there are a few notes in the cons section for you sticklers.
The inclusion of both a USB an PS2 braided cable was a nice addition; makes transitioning from work to home that much easier.
A key puller would have been nice, but that's no deal-breaker.
The main problem I encountered has been remedied by a decent break-in period. At first there were some sticky keys - primarily those with stabilizers - but these seem to have evened out after extended use.
I haven't found anything else to complain about, other than the LARGE Rosewill logo adorning the keyboard. I could do without it, but it's actually a bit less intrusive than the images would imply.
For US buyers, these Rosewill boards are easily the best value on a new mechanical keyboard using Cherry switches. I was hesitant at first due to the price, which is high even with a sale, but I've been so pleased that I'd easily spend quite a bit more on my next board.
If you're thinking about it, stop. Just buy it!
