Rosewill RK-9000BR - Mechanical Keyboard with Cherry MX Brown Switches

5 out of 5 eggs Solid entry level mechanical keyboard 11/21/2013

This review is from: Rosewill RK-9000BR - Mechanical Keyboard with Cherry MX Brown Switches

Pros: Got this when it was on a deep discount with a gift card rebate kicker and couldn't be more satisfied. It's heavy, which might not sound important, but it helps keep it stable during typefests. Naturally it's accurate with your keystrokes and records them all.

Make sure you like Brown switches and know what you're getting into, but this keyboard has served me well so far with some light gaming and report writeups. If you want an entry-level mechanical keyboard, this is it.

Cons: Only actual con: no included key puller.

It's hard to say these others are "cons" they're just features which aren't present (and you consequently don't have to pay for).
-No media buttons
-No extra USB ports
-No Windows key deactivation
-No advanced algorithm to detect snarky emails and respond in kind

Other Thoughts: I haven't noticed the connector as being weak or flimsy, but I can't say I've touched it since I set up the keyboard.

This would be a good weapon if they made another modern version of Clue.

Also, I think another reviewer mentioned it but if you look into the Num/Caps/Scroll Lock LEDs from directly overhead it's going to burn more than the sun and Eye of Sauron combined. I don't know why you wouldn't be at an angle of approximately 45-80 degrees to the keyboard instead of 90, but don't do it.

Pros: Putting the OS and core programs unsurprisingly cuts bootup time drastically. From pressing the power button to a fully loaded desktop in ~25 seconds, including login time.

Cons: None to mention, I guess it's only 64gb but if you need bigger buy bigger!

Other Thoughts: Smaller form factor than traditional 3.5" HDD may mean you need a piece of plastic and/or a creative rubber-band job. On the flip side fits in many laptops!

Pros: The good stick worked fine.

Cons: But the other stick needed an RMA, the mobo was giving RAM errors no matter what combination of seating used with the bad stick in.

Other Thoughts: Not the most expensive product on the market but I still hope things work when they arrive so RMA -2 eggs.
