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.

Before this, I've limped along on membrane keyboards. I never saw the justification of buying a $100 keyboard, even if it supposedly lasts longer. But when I saw this on sale for $70 after Christmas, I had to buy it.

I don't have the micro USB connector issue some people seem to have. I don't jerk the cable around though.

This is THE CHEAPEST MX Black keyboard out there. Currently, the CM Quickfire is slightly cheaper, but you lose a numberpad, and you get all these conspicuous gaming markings like "Quickfire" on the space bar. I don't call something without a numberpad a keyboard. I use my numberpad to bind macros to. Since the CM Quickfire doesn't have one, I guess I would have to bind macros to the arrow keys?

Rosewill has always been a manufacturer of solid, no-frills-attached type products. I have built many rigs using Rosewill cases and fans, but this is the first time I've tried one of their peripherals. It's built to the exact standard Rosewill uses in their products, similar to how Corsair has a good build quality. I can tell in a blind test whether a fan is from Corsair, Cooler Master, or Rosewill. The Corsairs and Rosewills are made of higher-quality ABS plastic, while most of CM's offerings are made of some polysynthetic junk that flexes under the slightest weight. So you can imagine why I wasn't eager to go with CM's take on a keyboard.

As for the value of this product, it's up to you. Sure the typing experience is better, but does it really justify $70-$80? I've typed on a few membranes that feel AMAZING and only cost $30. They failed me quickly though. My last membrane failed in about 6 months. The keys got sticky and some of the keys wouldn't respond unless I slammed them. Also, I got ghosting problems.
