Rosewill Apollo RK-9100xBBR Blue Backlit Mechanical Keyboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Happy on Linux 09/17/2014

This review is from: Rosewill Apollo RK-9100xBBR Blue Backlit Mechanical Keyboard

Pros: It works great on my Linux Mint 17 box. The backlighting mode adjustment works, switching into gaming mode works, and the media keys work with Rhythmbox without any plugins.
As far as the keyboard's physical attributes go, I'm coming from an IBM Model M which recently died, and this is a worthy successor.
The backlighting is well focused on the keys. Translucency is excellent and smooth on all keys. The braided cable is a welcome upgrade, and the connection point to the keyboard is robust. I found the included ports (especially the headphone jack) to be surprisingly handy. Excellent mix of minimal bezel, solid weight, and correct leading edge height.
I find the Cherry Browns to be the best mix for everyday use, although this is a personal choice.

Cons: A couple of very minor design considerations:
1) The NumLock / CapsLoc / "G" LEDs are much brighter and can't be dimmed.
2) The "Rosewill" logo stamped on the front is whiter and more prominent than the nice subtle text and graphics elsewhere on the keyboard; it is an unfortunate private labeling choice by Rosewill for an otherwise elegant product.

Other Thoughts: I've not used the included software.
The keys begin at leading edge of the keyboard (this is the right way to make a keyboard in my opinion) so you are going to want a wrist rest. I didn't like the plastic wrist rest that was included, I prefer a gel or other soft wrist rest.

Rosewill RX-C200P 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: No problems with mounting the drive to the adapter or mounting adapter into my machine. Mounting screws were included and everything lined up nicely. (Installing a new SSD into a 6-year-old full size tower).

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I had reservations about a plastic unit, but after installing I see that metal would be complete overkill for a 2.5" drive bay adapter. Plastic wasn't very good going from 5.25" to 3.5" but it is fine going from 3.5" to 2.5". With older / heavier spinning drives there was a natural tendency to solidly tighten screws which would strip plastic, this is definitely not an issue with a 2.5" SSD.

Coboc 15 ft. gold plated, High speed HDMI to HDMI A/V Cable (Black)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I've never had a problem with these, even when running parallel to power cords. The shielding seems sufficient for an HDMI 1.4a 3D signal with noisy speaker wires and other HDMI cables bundled together.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I was concerned that 15' might be pushing it given the lack of isolation but it hasn't been an issue.
