yea others found the link, there are other "ergonomic" keyboards out there but the northgate had alp switches, so if i wanted to focus on cherry keys i'd have to get the kinesis, and i really didn't want to "learn" a new way to type.
Plus i've used the MS ergo 4k for almost 5years? (maybe more idk). The ms4k has a nice layout and the negative slope is pretty awesome.

if this sounds like you then yea your only course is to mod one like i did.
couple of things i'd do different.

use a g15 control board (when i open it up i'll really see) so i can better integrate keys/macros/dislplay

make it tenless in the first place (this would have saved me from wiring up the numpad)

use smaller gauge wires and heatsinks instead of just electrical tape to make it look "nicer".

but it works great, just waiting on ups for the g15 to come in so i can hack it into the modded board.

Guys and gals(o rly), I'm on a rosewill, don't think i would have ever been sporting rosewill.

Any who i don't actually mind as in my eyes so far this is a excellent product nice to get away from my crappy smooshy aging laptop keys.

I have been on this for about a hour or so now, when i go back to the laptop.... I facepalm. smoosh smoosh smoosh.

Seems to be pretty decent build quality heavier than anything i have owned.

Logo doesn't bother me much, still getting use to the keys but I think this will be a long ownership or at least i hope, will report back if i lose any keys or anything.

This keyboard makes you feel like writing a story.

Nice!

This is exactly how I feel about the Filco Majestouch Tactile Click (which is basically identical to the Rosewill RK-9000).

Are you using a USB to PS/2 adapter so that you also have full NKRO?

I can't right now actually, this laptop doesn't have a PS/2. I have indeed tried hitting a bunch of keys and 6 register, which I'm told is the USB limit. I don't know of a good program to test anything else. My desktop is out of commission for the second. I have a adapter somewhere.

I heard they were pretty similar, I was actually looking at the das keyboards, was thinking of getting the "silent" model, but i hear blues and browns aren't a whole lot different sound wise. Also a solid built keyboard, that compares to a filco for 75 bucks is hard to turn down. I was even looking into the razer keyboards, but heard they were using IONE as a manufacturer I know they have had quality control issues. If I'm gonna buy a mechanical keyboard no point in it dieing in a year or i haven't really reaped the benefits.

Wish i knew of a way of disabling a laptop keyboard, I might just disconnect it lol. Inconvenient to lug this around however. Even my darn laptop touch pad buttons feel mushy...

Well there i am writing a story again.

If you don't approach the limit of 6 keys (like if you only play games that one hand is on the mouse), then there is really no reason to grab a ps/2 adapter. While ps/2 is technically faster, it's not something that is even remotely noticeable.

The Cherry MX Blues and Browns are very different from each other when it comes to sound. The Cherry MX Blues have a mechanical click that occurs upon actuation while the Browns don't. But when bottoming out, almost every mechanical keyboard is going to be "clacky".

Anyway, I didn't know you were using this on a laptop. I thought you just meant that you were replacing a laptop-style keyboard.

But yeah man, this is basically identical to the Filco Majestouch Tactile Click. Both these keyboards are built using the Costar CST-104.

I was saying sound wise, seen a few youtube videos they don't sound all that different to me. The clicks are pretty light compared to bottoming out. I'm not saying theres not a difference, but i imagine it's only a few db. Certainly not the hype around mx blues being super loud.

Thanks for the info and confirm, when i was reading about it was seemingly more hearsay, I tried to keep up with them on geekhack, it's a little hard sometimes but hilarious.

There is a new Geekhack Mechanical Keyboard Guide you might want to check out - it's aimed at people new to mechanical keyboards.

And yes, we do have sense of humor there.
