Rosewill evens the playing field by bringing LED backlighting to its RK-9000 line of mechanical keyboards.
August of last year, hardware manufacturer Rosewill unveiled its Cherry MX-based RK-9000 mechanical keyboard line. Offering four different Cherry MX switch configurations, the keyboards became a quick hit for both enthusiasts and gamers. Now, the company has launched its highly anticipated update to the line adding a few desirable features.Unlike its predecessor, the new LED-backlit RK-9100 Series will only be offered in 2 variations: the Cherry MX Blue (RK-9100) and the Cherry MX Brown (RK-9100BR). The biggest feature from the update would be the individually backlit keys with three illumination options and four brightness levels. The new keyboards also come with a 2-port USB 2.0 hub, seven multimedia keys and 6-key rollover.
Initially demoed at Computex 2012, the keyboards can now be ordered directly from Newegg for $119.99.
