I don't care for the keycool, it just seems like any other traditional TKL

Basically I've come to expect apple quality out of everything I buy, if there is more than 3 things I don't like about it, i return it.

And I can't yet come to bring myself to spend a few hundo on an alum case for my tkl

Well, since I typically pull apart my keyboards, at least saying what stabilizers they use, the keycap quality, any annoying quirks or problems, how easy it would be to mod, if they use standard keycap sizes, the finish quality, etc.

most people just read whats off the box, and for the love of god, no one cares about unboxing videos.
post #17335 of 36844
yeah that gets me too, when they get all gooey undoing the flaps slowly etc etc....
ok I will get to work on the key puller and review it to within an inch of invalidating the warranty, how about that? smile.gif

I believe that many of these manufacturers at least work off a standard frame/layout, which would for the most part make the keyboard fit into the many custom cases that are available, so while the keycool is another base board, the possibility for modding is there.

Cases like these spring to mind.

yeah, i would love a vortex case, though I know Filcos fit right in them, My QFR might need a little modding since the filco has a fixed cable and the QFR does not. but that shouldn't be too bad, and worse case just drill a hole for the cable to go through as it will be on the back and you never see it.

Looks like Rosewill is showcasing a new keyboard or two at Blizzcon:

"After a largely successful release of the RK-9000, RK-9000i, RK-9100 illuminated keyboard mechanical keyboards, Rosewill is showing the Apollo RK-9100x Mechanical Keyboard series and STRIKER RK-6000 mechanical keyboard. Apollo RK-9100x will have Cherry MX blue or brown and come illuminated in red or blue backlighting. It is fully programmable with macro support, multiple profile support, n-key rollover via a braided USB cable with gold connectors, USB pass-through ports, removable wrist wrest, and wrapped in a rubber textured enclosure. The STRIKER RK-6000 mechanical keyboard will also have fully programmable keys with macro support and include 8 textured keys for quick key location.

Looks like it's another one of those generic OEM mechanical keyboards with Rosewill's logo slapped on it. Anyone know who makes these? I've seen them exact same chassis from other companies as well.

ew, from that picture those look awful.
post #17339 of 36844
The Apollo RK-9100x is just a Qpad, same as the Monoprice mechanical keyboard and the STRIKER RK-6000 looks like an Azio Levetron Clicker in ANSI instead of ISO or this cheap DSI mech with the Azio's body.

as for your wobble connectwise, did you not try an RMA there? Because the one's in stores over here don't wobble.

p.s. it's not aluminium but it has a metal base (finish) and is incredibly cheap and sturdy, the Flashget G600, no backlighting although it's a modders dream smile.gif

No I won't try RMA, never did my previous board b/c it's my only board. I'm not willing to give time up from my daily use to rma.

Why buy this thing (k95)? Because I needed it. Red switches is just a drawback, not a deal breaker over what I need.
