    I think there's a fair few mechanical keyboards with detachable USB cables. Don't get your hopes up.

    Rosewill's mechanical keyboards all have mini-USB connectors for the detachable cable - you get 2 cables, one that terminates in full-size USB(giving you 6-key rollover), the other in PS/2(giving you a full 104-key rollover).

    They are not wireless.

    Rosewill is actually Newegg rebranding of some other company's product. These keyboards are not wireless.

    FWIW, Rosewill/Newegg has had considerable issues with the mini USB port on the keyboard where the cable plugs in. See Newegg customer reviews of the various 9000/9100 series mobos where people have owned them for 6+ months. In addition the cable itself is of a poor design in that it is a very stiff cable that is totally inappropriate for a keyborad or other external PC device. It appears that whomever designed it had no clue what they were doing. It's inappropriate to use a mini USB socket and a rigid connection cable on a full size keyboard, so it's unclear what they were thinking?

    The keyboards themselves having Cherry MX keys are pleasing for most people. Durability and reliability remains to be determined. Choosing the right key type for your use and comfort level takes a little research into Cherry MX key types, which I'd recommend before purchasing any mechanical keyboard. Unless you need the features of the 9100/9200 series the 9000 series is the same keyboard without the add-ons.

    Not a bad keyboard.
    Wonder if it's durable.

    I don't see much difference between this new RK-9200 series and the RK-9100 series. I would guess its a manufacturing revision to cut costs and/or include better quality.

    It's a nice option for someone looking into mechanical keyboards for the first time. I myself was going to pull the trigger on a brown cherry mx RK-9100 but I'm now hoping to jump on a DUCKY Shine II if I can find one in stock.

    What dude says above about the chinsy connectors is quite true. At least on some Rosewill mech kb models.

    It depends on how lucky you are and if you move your keyboard around at all.


    The difference is primarily the dual color LEDs and lighted arrow keys, compared to the 9100 series.
