Rosewill Intros RK-9000 Series Mechanical Keyboards

Rosewill announced its RK-9000 series of mechanical-switch keyboards. In mechanical keyboards, each key has its own mechanical switch, compared to common membrane keyboards that use rubber conductive pads over a plastic membrane. Mechanical keyboards also tend to be more durable and provide more consistant tactile feedback compared to membrane ones. Rosewill's RK-9000 series is built on the various kinds of Cherry MX series switches, that have different tactile feedback levels.

The RK-9000 (standard) uses Cherry MX Blue switches, the RK-9000BR uses Cherry MX Brown, the RK-9000BL uses Cherry MX Black, and the RK-9000RE uses Cherry MX Red. All RK-9000 keyboards come with detachable cables, and come bundled with both USB and PS/2 cables. The connectors are gold-plated to improve durability. Pricing and availability isn't known, but the keyboards should reach major retail stores very soon.

All $100 on the Rosewill site. Not bad. (Brown used as an example, as it's what i am interested in.)
3 year warranty on parts so maybe they just send replacement parts to you and if so that's pritty cool as most keyboards come with a 1 year warranty.
