Keyboard Bliss: Rosewill 9100BR Hits The MarkWhat we have on tap for you today is the Rosewill 9100BR. It's not as flashy as some of the other mechanicals on the market, but it gets the job done with style.

So how nice is this Rosewill 9100BR? Pretty damn sexy. In fact, I'd say it hits the Goldilocks zone perfectly. If the Gigabyte Osmium's keys were a bit too light for your taste, but ALPS switches and Cherry Blacks came off too hard, then Cherry Brown key switches are damn near perfect...

Nice keyboard!

Newegg has these on sale for around $80.00 every now and then.

I'm all for a good mechanical keyboard. I just wish they'd cut the prices by about 50% or toss it something else to make it worth my while. It's just hard to commit to buying a keyboard when you already have one that works.

You just won a mechanical keyboard, so you'll know the value of one soon enough,...........(I agree that they should be cheaper)
