Testing and Final Thoughts

Testing:

Testing was pretty easy.  I play a lot of games that require constant use of multiple keys. This on top of using teamspeak really puts a keyboards anti ghosting claims to the test.  The Apollo never faltered and always transmitted all my keystrokes. 

The feel and sound of this keyboard did take some getting used to. I have always used decent but non-mechanical keyboards in the past. The Apollo definitely changed that for me. I really like the feel and the feedback. There is no confusion whether you missed hitting that key in battle anymore.

Conclusion:

In conclusion I really like Rosewill's Apollo Mechanical Gaming Keyboard.  I was impressed with its quality as well as the features offered. Along with being mechanical, the Apollo feels great, looks good, and is packed with time saving functions. There are five profiles and up to 50 macro keys that can be programmed across those profiles.

The gold plated connectors and Cherry MX switches really add to the Apollo. This keyboard really says quality and durability to me. At $149, the Apollo is a little pricier than I would have expected. It is a decent buy at the current price but I think it would be a steal at around $120. All in all I was impressed with the Apollo's quality and functionality, and I would definitely recommend it to anyone in the market for a great addition to their arsenal.

Pros:
  • Cherry MX Switches
  • Individually Backlit Keys
  • Up to 50 Macro Keys
  • True Anti-ghosting

 

Cons:
  • None
