3 out of 5 eggsDisappointing

Pros: Great feeling keybaord, doesn't take up a ton of space, looks good, responds great

Cons: Matte finish wears off, random keys stop working, Keyboard stops working as a whole and you gotta unplug it and plug it back in.

Other Thoughts: I bought this Keyboard in 2010 and instantly fell in love with its great feel. I was a high rated WoW player and this keyboard made life a lot easier but after about 6 months of ownership is when I started having problems. One day while playing WoW my A key randomly stopped working and even unplugging the keyboard and plugging it back in did nothing, Restarting the computer did nothing, taking to key off and making sure it was clean underneath did nothing. I would have to hit A 5-6 times to get it to input the key once and this lasted for about 2 weeks and then it just magically started working one day. Two more months go by and the same exact thing happens only this time it's with my 3 key and goes on for about 4 days. 2 months later it happens to my A key again. About a year later my O key stopped working all together for a month, 3 months after that my A key once again started messing up.

I have been looking for a new keyboard and the only reason I haven't switch is because I love the layout and feel of this one as it fits my play style perfectly.

3 out of 5 eggsTough But Basic

Pros: -Sturdy (Mine has resisted 4 years of thorough use and abuse)
-Latency is hardly existent (not like you will notice anyway)
-Needed amount of feedback on keypress
-Built in USB Extension and 3.5mm Audio port extension (see cons for this)
-Included Software for complex macros with no ghosting

As i grew into the gaming world i noticed its flaws and we will get to that shortly

Cons: The matte black finish on the keys will wear and scratch over time (REALLY LONG TIME) ive had mine for 4 years and i can see the led under the spacebar because ive worn through it and smashed the life out of that and certain other "Heavy use" keys.

NO DEDICATED MACRO KEYS.
Thats right! A gaming keyboard with great macro software and no dedicated macro keys to use it on.

Touch controls for volume/playlist navigation and back light are so sensitive and close together it becomes an event to use them where as youre better off just doing in the OS interface (with the exception of the backlight)

Single color backlight (Blue) with 3 options
-Off
-W,A,S,D ONLY
-Fully lit
I find this pretty useless, it should just be on and off with a hard switch instead of pressing this awfully sensitive toggle key to get between them. If you are a gamer buying a keyboard and need lights to show you where your WASD keys are you should probably go back to console.

There is also some kind of bottlenecking going on with the built in USB port, my higher profile devices wont recognize but things such as thumb-drives and micro usb devices work find. My usb headset will not recognize and nor will my external HDD, as well as buggyness with my phone via the usb port.

Difficult to clean without furthering its wear due to the finish on they keys.

Somewhat loud.

Other Thoughts: I bought this when i first got into PC gaming and it has lasted me through the years and im still using it at this very moment, its a trooper and the only reason im writing this review is its getting retired soon. It has survived spills, drops, things being dropped on it, fits of extreme rage (not all game related), cigaret embers and my elbow directly into the keys whilst drunk....safe to say it has outlasted any piece of electronics i have ever bought so at the time that i bought it and my knowledge then it was well worth it.

This is a great entry level gaming keyboard but in essence you are buying a singletone lightshow, its no more functional as a every day keyboard with the exception of anti-ghosting and some included software which im sure you can download for free with a couple minutes of searching.

worth the money? No, in 2009 with options not as broad: Yes for the pricetag of $120.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing keyboard!

Pros: I have owned this keyboard since 2011 and it is still working flawlessly. I even spilled an entire bottle of apple cider beer on it. I simple plucked all keys off and washed the entire keyboard. Easy to clean.

Cons: I don't prefer the WASD lightup option due to that only being viable for specific games. It causes me to have to hit the illuminate option more then once to get to the full lightup display.

Other Thoughts: 5/5 Great Keyboard. Not sure why there is so many harsh reviews. My assumption is they have outdated motherboards that do not have usb 3.0...

1 out of 5 eggsWorst Keyboard Ever

Pros: It lights up, sometimes.

Cons: The keyboard randomly stops working. The lights flicker sometimes and the audio settings continue to either skip songs/pause songs/stop songs or mute them altogether. I tried to get a warranty through Razer but since it's no longer manufactured they basically told me to get lost.

Seriously the worst customer support paired with the worst keyboard. I wouldn't recommend buying anything from them.

Manufacturer Response:

Hi,

Please forward any correspondences with our CS team to feedback@razerzone.com. Not sure how it was worded, but we would certainly never tell any customer to "get lost."

Thank you for understanding.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great, ergonomic

Pros: The lights are really cool and nice for playing games in the dark to keep the glare off the screen. Also no worrying about shadows on the keys. I can type without looking but when you are playing starcraft or another game glancing can be important to make sure you are not making a mistake and this makes a difference. If you can I would spring for a black widow because those things are unbelievable but i do think this is an affordable and worthwhile alternative.

Cons: The black shows dust and sweat very quickly.

Other Thoughts: Nice ridge on the bottom to support your wrist which is nice.

1 out of 5 eggsrandom keyboard crash

Pros: comfortable.

Cons: Randomly crashes and does not allow key input. Have to unplug usb from computer and back in to reset keyboard. Happens often everyday to to a week before happening again. Lights for the volume and caps lock and num lock are real bright and can no tell which are on or off. Keyboard chooses new illuminating settings each restart.

Other Thoughts: Should of stuck with my Saitek keyboard...

2 out of 5 eggsLocked Up

Pros: Backlight and volume controls worked great.

Cons: Keyboard would freeze using WASD often in middle of gaming. Had to unplug and reconnect USB cable and it would work. But by then I was usually dead.

Other Thoughts: Bought when first entered market. Shortly after they came out with other models. My keyboard numbers did not match the recalled serial numbers. Tech suppport would not RMA.

1 out of 5 eggsAweful keyboard

Pros: Back lit, does keyboard like things that any $10 Walmart keyboard can do.

Cons: This thing has serious problems with random keys not responding. I've tried this keyboard on 5 unique machines. It can be any key on the keyboard and the only solution is pull the usb out to rest the keyboard. Kind of frustrating when playing a game and awsd no longer works or typing to a friend. Apparently its a serious defect in the product.

Other serious problem is they used a rubber coating on the keys that rub right off. Who thought this was a good idea I dono. But what makes it worst is when the coating is rubbed off you can no longer tell what key your pressing because they keys them selves are made of clear plastic.. /duh Idiot engineers..

Lastly when you turn off the back lit function you can no longer see the microscopic light icon on the touch panel to turn it back on. You just mash your thumb all over it and hope you hit it to turn it back on. Sucks because you just mashed all kinds of other buttons on your keyboard to find it...

Other Thoughts: If they can't do the basics I can't support a company like this.

1 out of 5 eggsTerrible Keyboard. Do Not Buy!

Pros: Backlit with a nice blue color. I like the keyboard layout.

Cons: I paid $40, it is not worth $4.

It went crazy after about 35 hours of use. The media keys, apparently, decided to hit "Media Next" without stop... I tried pushing all the keys etc, but finally had to unplug the keyboard to get my media player to stop skipping tracks.

The keys kind of "catch" unless you are pushing on them straight down. This makes it very tough to type during long days of programming. It is annoying and causes some typing errors.

It is not EVENLY backlit, the special characters above the numbers are slightly dim.

Key labels are very difficult to see when not back-lit

Not thrilled about the shiny plastic finish.

Other Thoughts: I should have bought from NewEgg! I bought this as a "deal" on Woot. I have never had to return anything to them, but now I've found out that their return policy is nowhere near NewEgg quality!!!

5 out of 5 eggsLove it!

Pros: -Bright backlighting that can be turned on/off
-I absolutely love the rubberized keys as my hands tend to sweat (bit gross I know, but what are ya gonna do)
-It's more like a laptop style keyboard, which I prefer
-Keys aren't loud, but still make a nice typing noise. The keys are really soft and responsive so I don't understand all the reviews about having to hit them hard
-It's a nice size that fits on my somewhat small desk
-Matches my Razer Lachesis rather well ;)

Cons: -Have had the keyboard lock up on me exactly one time. W key got stuck while playing WoW so I ran myself into a wall and replugged it. Worked fine after that and no problems since. But I've also had to replace a whole laptop keyboard because of the W key getting stuck. I think I'm just hard on that particular key :P
-Don't even think of using it without the backlight (not sure why you'd want to anyway)

Other Thoughts: I had a SteelSeries before getting the Lycosa. The spacebar on it was basically broken and had to be mashed hard to get it to work and a couple of other keys had this problem. The keyboard was also huge and took up a lot of desk space. I really wanted a keyboard with the rubber keys and this was the one I decided on. I went back and forth on it after reading the reviews here and finally decided to just give it a try and could just return it if it came to that. I'm so glad I did as I love this keyboard. I've had it a year now, I eat over it all the time, I've played many hours of WoW, Skyrim, GW2, Borderlands 2, and a bunch of other games on it. No paint or rubber have come off, and all keys still work. Maybe I just got lucky, but it's a fine keyboard, imo. It's sexy and does exactly what I want.
