Rosewill RK-9000V2 RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review

It is the gaming aspect that has put new appreciation in Cherry MX brown switches. After mainly using blue switches as our go to when it comes to typing and gaming, a short stint with the soft MX Speed switches has allowed the MX Brown to feel much stiffer in their throw. The tactile bump is nice as you can feel when a key is pressed rather than wondering why you are constantly strafing or moving in unintended directions without any feel as to why.



We can also appreciate the near silence afforded from this keyboard while gaming too. Since your fingers are pressing for longer periods of time, and remaining on individual keys, the clack from the switch returning to its extended position does not come into play much, if at all.


We also like to have all of the profiles easily changed so that as we changed between titles, we have the Macros and lighting set just the way we want it. The repeat rate and modes of spamming the game when it comes to an MMO are handy, and also being able to adjust the game noise or the music player in the background without needing to exit the game are also things which gamers will find to be handy. We sure did.



Windows and Productivity


When it came to writing with the RK-9000V2, we ran into nothing strange, or funky in any way. At this time the keyboard can be a bit louder to use, especially the faster it is that you move your fingers. While relatively silent in their use, there is the clack that comes from the switch returning to neutral position. One thing we noticed right away is that the stiffer spring used in the Cherry MX brown switch has left us with fewer mistakes to correct from accidentally hitting multiple keys, or any times when we found ourselves double actuating a switch due to it being so soft in the throw and linear in feel.


Outside of the three LED color buttons not doing as they should, but still functioning, there is nothing that stands out and makes us want to take a shot at this keyboard.
