Not bad - for the money.
This review is for the rosewill gaming keyboard, rgb led backlit wired membrane mechanical feel keyboard with removable keycaps and the wrist rest - black (neon k51b)my first impression is that it seemed a little small. Upon further use it still seems small although not as small as it originally seemed. The keys feel a bit crowded but this could just be an effect of the odd way the keys feel raised up - which is actually kinda nice. It definite allows for a much cleaner keyboard. The keys themselves feel pretty nice. Not as clicky as you might like but definitely a step up from a standard membrane keyboard. The key caps come off petty easily for what that's worth. As well the wrist rest is just plain hard plastic. Not the worst thing ever, just nothing worth talking about.Now for the bad stuff... The wrist rest does not "attach" to the keyboard. It has two holes that the front footpads slide into. Basically if you move the keyboard it's coming off. Every time, no exceptions. I'm not sure if that's supposed to be a feature or just cheap design. Probably the later rationalized as the first. The keys are clearly marked but some use some alternate characters. For example, the shift just has an arrow up, caps lock just has '[a]' and a few other oddities. Nothing too bad and not a big deal. On the other hand, the alternate (shift) elements are not above the primary character as is usual, but to the right of it. While this doesn't seem like a big deal, for me it's been a slight bit jarring. Some keys just look odd at first glance (the ; key now looks like ;: ). It'll take a little getting used to.The lighting isn't terrible, in fact it's better than a few more expensive keyboards i've seen. It has three levels of brightness plus off. The highest level is fairly bright. The effects are ok but some would be much cooler if you could set them to use a single color - which you cannot do. You have your choice between effects that all use the "rainbow" colors or a solid color that does nothing. Some effects make zero sense but look neat, like the one where the light reacts to a key press. It looks really great but has one glaring flaw - the keys are totally dark until you press a key, meaning you can't tell which key is which until you press it, so unless you are a great typist or you previous keyboard was a blank das keyboard, you may have some issues with this. Maybe have a way for it to be at it's lowest setting instead of just off? As well, this is one of those effects that might look nice if done in a single color rather than the full "rainbow"...But here's the worst; the keyboard doesn't save any settings. If you unplug it or turn off your machine, it resets so that when it comes back on it's all rainbows again. To be fair, it doesn't do that during a reset, just a power off. Still, this irritates me and seems like something that could be different and may end up being the deal breaker for me.. If this doesn't bother you then you'll probably like this keyboard just fine.All said, it's a nice keyboard, especially for the price. I'll probably not use this for long... It feels like an interim keyboard to me rather than my end design. I would consider this to be a 3 star keyboard at a higher price. At $35 it's a 4 star keyboard..
