Solid keyboard with great tactile feel.
Oregonian
The Cherry Corp. switches feel great, and the auditory feedback of clicking increases my typing rate over regular non mechanical keyboards.
Yifan Z.
I contacted Rosewill and, at my expense, sent the keyboard off for a prompt replacement.

Very good keyboard with great keys. There is one design flaw: This keyboard comes with two cables - PS2 and USB - but the mini connection is very weak (mine shorted out and I returned the keyboard). The cables are just too heavy for the tiny connector. A better design would be hardwired or at least internal, reinforced. Also, the keys are lasered and letters will wear off with time (check user forums). (I later purchased and highly recommend a DasKeyboard, which is excellent, with a hardwired cable connection.)

I'm a fan of mechanical keyboards. I own 3 at the moment. Of them, I submit that this one is my favorite. Here's why:

1) Detachable cables (mini-USB to PS/2, and mini-USB to USB), braided, and plenty long.
2) Perfect layout. This is the way US keyboards should be.
3) Perfect fit-and-finish. Screws are tight, no scratches or scuffs. Earlier versions had a textured plastic housing, but the latest ones are a smooth, matte black. Nice weight. Seems durable.
4) Unique features key switches are mounted on a red metal plate. While this is a subtlety, I think it looks a lot better than other brands (which look bland by comparison).
5) Keycap Compatibility: Keycaps intended for FILCO-brand keyboards will fit this perfectly. You can get these in a number of places online, or even have them custom made (I have some from Signature Plastics, you can find their website easily).

If you are having trouble deciding between the various revisions, THIS ONE IS THE RIGHT ONE. The Cherry MX Brown switches are some of the lightest switches available, yet have a tactile feel; the actuation point is 2mm below the resting position, and requires approximately 45 grams to achieve that actuation. The switches aren't quite as crisp as Cherry MX Blues, but they are almost silent, no louder than your average basic $10 keyboard from Logitech or Dell.

Click clack, click clack.

I feel like some of mechanical keyboard hipster; I've been using a trusty IBM Model M and a Northgate Omnikey Ultra way before mechanical keyboards became the new "in" thing two or three years back. As I've been using the M and Omnikey for the past ten years, I feel qualified to compare this Rosewill which I've used for almost a month now with them.

Why did I decide to upgrade to a new keyboard? Well, I recently built a new computer, and the motherboard that I used did not have a PS/2 port. I've tried several adapters, but none of them were totally satisfactory. Keyboard shopping it is then. Both the IBM Model M and the Northgate Omnikey that I used were clicky and tactile; this means that you can feel when the key switch is actuated (tactile), and you can hear it as well (clicky). Almost all new mechanical keyboards now use switches by Cherry Corp. of Germany, so I looked for the equivalent switches from Cherry: "blues," so named for the color of the actual stem coming out of the switch which the keycap attaches to.

I ordered the keyboard from Amazon, and, as usual, got it a few days later. My first impression was, "Wow, that's tiny!" Despite being a full sized 104 key keyboard, the Rosewill is absolutely tiny compared to the Model M, nevermind the Omnikey with its additional function keys. The Rosewill feels much lighter than both the M and the Omnikey, but that's not to say it feels cheap. The plastics use on the case feel sturdy, and the feet snap into place with an authoritative click. The keyboard has a detachable cable, and comes with both a USB and a PS/2 cable, both braided and high quality. The connectors are gold plated, which Rosewill claims will decrease latency. This is false. Boo, Rosewill, Boo.

Actually it essentially IS a rebadged Cherry MX Blue Filco Majestictouch 104 full keyboard and that's a wonderful thing since Filcos are becoming very scarce in the United States. You can go on forums like geekhack to see the nitty gritty breakdown and gut shots to prove it. I don't know how to pay Rosewill a higher compliment than that. They're offering a great keyboard at a great price.

Pros:

I co-sign with any and all 5 star reviews.

I've been using run of the mill rubber membrane keyboards like many of them are for years. An MS Natural Ergo 4000 being the most recent for the last 3 years. It served me well but I wore down two of them in less than 5 years with nominal usage. I type and game. I've never raged out on my KB, either. ;)

That tipped me off that maybe I was using something of less than great build quality and I wondered if there were better options with better build quality.

I had no idea what I was really missing until I stumbled upon the mechanical keyboard world via my research. The feel, the build quality, the responsiveness of the keys: It's a huge difference. I was pleasantly surprised.

When you pull this out of the box you can already tell by feel, weight, and appearance you're in for something different and better. Then you use it. I'm saying all of this as someone who went in fairly skeptical thinking "A keyboard is a keyboard." Wrong! I don't even miss the Ergo with this which is a pleasant surprise. It's almost like upgrading for some $10 mouse to a Logitech G9x as a loose analogy.

Keyboard and mouse are of equal importance for me from now on after this. Mechanical 4 Life. I'm a believer now.
