Rosewill RK-9000I - Mechanical Keyboard with Cherry MX Blue Switches
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Great Keyboard 12/05/2013

This review is from: Rosewill RK-9000I - Mechanical Keyboard with Cherry MX Blue Switches

Pros: Cherry MX Blue switches
No-nonsense 104 key layout; normal Enter and Backspace keys and two Windows keys
No extra gaming/media keys getting in the way
Compact size and good heft. Keyboard is stable and fits well on smaller desks.
n-key rollover

The MX Blue switches essentially emulate the venerable and much loved buckling spring switches that the IBM Model M used. They are ideal for touch typing, and for those who like the noise.

Cons: No extra gaming/media keys for those who want them
MX Blues are not the end-all, be-all switch
Cost: catch this one on sale (like I did)

The interchangeable PS2 or USB cable means that it can be accidentally detached from the keyboard.

ASUS PCE-N15 Wireless Adapter IEEE 802.11b/g/n PCI Express 300/300Mbps Transfer/Receive Rate 64-bit WEP, 128-bit WEP, WPA2-PSK, WPA-PSK, WPS support
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Plug and play for Windows 8; no driver download required! (Not even from Windows Update).
No bloatware wifi manager software.

Cons: 2dBi antennas.
No 5GHz band.
Only 2 antennas instead of three.
High base price. (Get it on sale)

Other Thoughts: I bought this on Black Friday (for $10) because when I upgraded to Windows 8 I discovered that my off-brand Wifi's Win7 64-bit driver caused one CPU core to run at 100% all the time. (Disable the adapter in device manager and it quits) With no idea when I'd get an update, I went with a known brand so I'd be sure they'd release a driver, and low and behold the one that shipped with Windows 8 "just worked."

IOGEAR GKM611B Black 82 Normal Keys Bluetooth Wireless Slim Multi-Link Keyboard with Touchpad
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Bluetooth
integrated touchpad (until it dies...)

Cons: Wouldn't stay connected to bluetooth between reboots. Hard to reconnect when only keyboard and pointing device not functioning. (catch-22)
Shoddy construction, keyboard slid downward inside the casing after only a few weeks of use with an HTPC. this caused all the lower keys to start snapping off and breaking. It was repaired once with super-glue, but this failed to alleviate the issue, until finally the touchpad totally failed. Threw it in the trash.

Other Thoughts: Bought IOGEAR GKM561R ( as a replacement, and it's a million times better than this model. It's also comparably priced. Do yourself a favor and stay away from this one.
