Full Disclosure: The product sample used in this article has been provided by Rosewill.

Despite being a PC gamer since receiving MechWarrior 2: Mercenaries for my parents' ancient Epson back in 1995, I've never really had a keyboard specifically designed as a "gaming" keyboard. They've always been generic office things from Microsoft or Logitech. Prior to receiving this keyboard for review, I used a backlit Logitech keyboard that had a flat typing surface. I've been testing the Rosewill Gaming Keyboard RK-8100 (model RIKB-11003) for the past three weeks, and typing on it still feels different to me.

The Rosewill Gaming Keyboard is not mechanical, so you won't be seeing a discussion of various Cherry-flavored inputs. It features a number of bells and whistles to appeal to a gaming audience. At a relatively low $24.99, Rosewill targets this well-featured peripheral at the budget-conscious gamer.
