This review is from: Rosewill RK-9000I - Mechanical Keyboard with Cherry MX Blue Switches
Cheapest Mechanical Keyboard I could find. The white case against the black keys give this keyboard a nice look.
It's small and the casing is very sturdy.
It lacks basic windows shortcut keys (volume, calculator, media, ect )
While the interchangable PS/2 and USB cable seems like it would be a nice option, it causes a problem for me by coming unplugged from the back of the keyboard if any kind of slight tug is made. Don't pull your keyboard off of your desk into your lap to relax , the cord is going to come unplugged every time.
Some of the keys feel as if they are loose to attach to the switch underneath. Some of the keys wobble a little ( very slightly but noticable ) if you run your fingers across them, while other keys seem to have a nice snug fit over the switch. It's completely random keys.
the letters are painted onto the keys and are very easy to wear off. my WSAD keys started to wear off only a couple weeks after i bought it and they are now close to completely gone after just 5 weeks of use. ( not a heavy gamer )
This Keyboard has a nice price. The lack of features would be just fine if the keyboard itself actually performed great. It does work and it's easy to type/game on , but the random wobbly keys takes a lot away from it. The numbpad "3" key on my board has a defective switch under it. The key is half depressed at all times and sometimes gets stuck. I only noticed this a couple weeks after use. Not sure if it was shipped with a bad switch or if it's just that susceptible to damage.
I wish i had spent a little bit more money and got a high quality keyboard. But i'm not completely disappointed, So this Rosewill will hopefully do the trick for at least another year or so.
