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.

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.

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.
