OP  10/12/11 12:14:04 PM#1

Peripherals are critical to game success. Whether it's a keyboard or a gaming mouse, these hardware accessories matter. In a new hardware review here at MMORPG.com, Managing Editor Bill Murphy takes a look at the Rosewill RK-9000 Keyboard. See how this baby measures up to the needs of the avid gamer. Tried the Rosewill RK-9000 Keyboard? Have an opinion on what Bill said? Leave us a comment or two.

Rosewill isn’t necessarily known for their gaming peripherals. When you think of gaming keyboards and mice, you probably think of RAZER more than anyone else. But being in the market for a new KB since my Microsoft Comfort Curve was walking its death-march, I really wanted to get back to the basics of a traditional keyboard that offered me solid design, durability (with cats and little dogs, they take a beating in my house) and low latency. If the thing had any other functions, they’d be superfluous (but welcome all the same).

Read more of Bill Murphy's Rosewill RK-9000 Keyboard Review.

Looks nasty !


Lack of back lit keys is too big a no no for me now.

A better (way better) option would be the QPAD mx-80. Amazing keyboard.





Oh and I don't think about Razer when I think about gaming devices. Don't know why you would say that.

"Gaming Hardware" is a joke. I mean... 100+ for a keyboard and some mice? Crazy.


 


I competed in the US Unreal Tournament 3 1v1 competition. I played against the top players from accross the country.


 


I won. I used a 19.99 Microsoft Optical Wheelmouse.

How awesome. Now, if you can spend the extra bucks, the equipment does give you an edge, I love my Razer Naga, I can play most MMOs by using just my mouse, no keyboard needed except for WASD in situations were constant accurate movement is required.

Different folks, different strokes.

 

Just because you disagree with the idea of the peripheral, does not mean someone else will as well. To me that keyboard seems like an overpriced POS, but at least the reviewer is up front about what it does and does not do. The build quality and technical performance seem to be top notch.

Well... I'm on my 2nd fairly expensive Logitech KB that's giving me crap in less than 2 years.  So there IS something to say about a solid KB.  But like someone else said, lack of backlit keys is an automatic DQ, for me.  If that means I have to buy a new KB every 2 years, so be it.  Just that my next one won't be a Logitech.

Nope, no joke! We're hoping to review one piece of new hardware a month, from headsets to GPUs, to mice and keyboards. Most of them will be done via demo units (temporary trial pieces) from specific companies if we can secure them, or by us just buying new pieces of hardware ourselves. It's something we once did on a regular basis, and we'd like to get back to it due to our heavy PC focus.

Yeah, the lack of back-lighting was a downer for me too. But really, I pretty much always work in a lighted office, so it's not something I personally am missing. It's just a nice feature to have.

I use a merc stealth it's held up very well for the past 2+ years, that Rosewill one looks a bit lack lustre to me.

"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience"

This is a mechanical keyboard with Cheery swith, hence the price and for such keyboard ( mech ) it is rather cheap.
Mechanical keyboards are the best IMO. Full N Key rollover ( impossible with USB ), almost unbreakable, no fanciness but some are fancier with more options and backlit keys.

This one also use "Laser printing design for the keycap" which is one of the best engraving process for keys.

Gamers are willing to shelve $400 in a video card but $100 on a "true" keyboard is too much ?

A bit like Filco keyboards: http://www.diatec.co.jp/en/list.php?cate_c=1 Also very heavy duty mechanical and they come in camo as well. You can pick cherry blue, brown and black key switches for different keystroke lengths and clicks.


Despite their minimalistic looks these things are much more pro than my own G15. My flatmate owns one and they just feel rock solid.

I hears dat.  My work machine is fine without it, but at home, my lighting is from a ceiling fan behind me.  My KB is in shadow most of the time.

I suspect the issues I have are probably caused by the compromises necessary to backlight the KB's, because I never used to go through them until I started buying them backlit in '07-ish.  I still have my $20 IBM from 1995 working 100% on my old basement PC.  And my work keyboard is the same one I've used since I was hired there in '03.

I'm with ya.  I love my Naga to death.  I love the feel of my naga as well and I wouldnt trade that.  If you have the money to spend then why not.  

Also, its a bit more than "can it do it"  A 20 dollar Microsoft Optical mouse likely wont do the 3000 dpi that I like to use.  Also, that $20 mouse probably doesnt look near as good as my naga does, nor will it last as long as my naga has.  I understand that its a prefrence thing but no matter how hard I try I can not understand why you would prefer a crappy mouse thats supposed to be used for casual PC users over a more specalized product.  

A Kia will get you to your destination but it wont get you there as nice as a Lexus, nor will it last as long.

The G15 is what I've got!  So... does YOUR Numlock key still work?  Have you ever had your overhead number keys stop working?  THAT"s always lots of fun in a raid... fortunately that issue seems to have fixed itself, recently.

Yeah I used to have that number key problem. Also in a light room I think the backlighting is much too dark.


Num lock key works fine though. But I'll replace this thing soon, a Filco like my flatmate has seems really great but this reviewed one as well. I don't need programmable buttons so very much anyway.

I own a Filco MajesTouch 2 ( brown switch ). The thing is like The Monolith ( 2001 A space Odyssey reference ).

To tell the truth, I used to love the Hardware reviews, and I WILL read them, if they come back.




And my remark about "the joke" was not towards the article in itself, but for the keyboard (but that is something purely subjective).




Welcome back hardware page!!!!!!


P.S. Just please, try and keep the minuses too. I understand that brands send the hardware in the ideea of free advertising, but try to be objective, mmorpg.com already has lost a huge ammout of credibility in other areas.
