I recently got this Rosewill RK-9100 Mechanical Keyboard with Cherry MX Blue switches, and it's amazing. Keys are surprisingly easy to press, really responsive, sound awesome, and feel great on the fingers. I like that this has the dual USB ports on the back of the keyboard as well, because they make it convenient to charge my other devices. The adjustable back-lighting is gorgeous in any brightness. I often work at night, and the fact that it can be dimmed is stellar. I use this keyboard for more than just gaming, and so I like that it has a numpad as well. Keycaps are just the right height for my liking, and spaced perfectly for my hand size. The weight is great: I expected it to be really heavy since it is full size, but it's surprisingly balanced. The adjustable feet are rubberized, and that feature gets kudos, because I like the angle with them up. There are no frills, which I love ~ Especially because the lack of a wrist rest, (wrist rests get in my way) The only thing I would change about this are the green LED keys: The numlock, capslock, and scroll lock keys light up green, but don't adjust with brightness - they are always really bright. That's an easy fix though. I just popped off the cap and blacked out the back of the key and LED to make it less bright. Overall, I would HIGHLY recommend (and have) this keyboard to my gaming friends, and anyone who likes a solid mechanical keyboard.
