 Rosewill RK 9100 Illuminated Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review

 

Rosewill has been on fire lately, releasing product after product after product. Even though the company started as an in-house brand of Newegg, they slowly fledged into a fully stand-alone manufacturer and exporter with myriads of technology-related products, including high performance products for gamers and enthusiasts. Today we will be having a look at such a product, the RK-9100 illuminated mechanical keyboard, an upgraded version of the RK-9000 mechanical keyboard which we reviewed a few months ago.

 Rosewill RK 9100 Illuminated Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review

Rosewill offers the RK-9100 keyboard with two different key switches, Cherry MX Brown or Cherry MX Blue; sorry guys, no black or red switches with this version. We received and tested the version with the Cherry MX Brown switches to bring you this review. Although the name suggests that the RK-9100 would be just an upgrade of the RK-9000 with lighting, it actually is an entirely different product, with different features and functionality. We will explore those differences in detail in this review.
