Rosewill is probably a company that you haven't heard of. It remains obscure outside of the US but is a major player within North America by dint of its status as giant retailer Newegg's largest in-house brand.

Selling thousands of items through Newegg provides exposure and economies of scale, but Rosewill now wants a retail presence of its own. At CES 2013, the firm demonstrated two soon-to-be-released products - the Helios RK-9200 mechanical keyboard and monster THRONE chassis.

Rosewill claims a 'world's first' with the $120 dual-backlit keyboard, as the WASD and directional keys can be lit in a different colour to the rest, giving it an unique look. The $180 THRONE, available in black or white, rivals Corsair's just-announced Obsidian 900D as the biggest chassis we've seen at the show.

I think he meant first dual LED mechanical keyboard.
Yup their mechanical keyboards are very similar to most others (same factory I think) but a fair bit cheaper. Just wish they were available in the UK!
The Company you're thinking of is Cherry, although they don't make all the mechanical keyboards they do make almost all the mechanical keys as I think they are the only manufacture of mechanical keyboard switches left

The case . . . well it's a monster, personally I'm not a fan of giant cases, I do like half door cases even though they are not that common.
