4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Even without signing in to synapse; the keyboard acts as a normal keyboard.
The screen is pretty cool and I've used the resource monitor and the web browser more than the other apps.
After re-installing synapse it worked just as it was supposed to.

Cons: The original installation with the synapse and such is basically garbage.
There is a very noticeable screen delay when using any of the apps.
The hand rest is not much of a hand rest at all.

Other Thoughts: The keyboard itself works great and I love the ability to use the resource monitor on the keyboard screen.
Before buying the keyboard for the screen, think real hard how much you're actually going to use it. Still pretty awesome keyboard though.

1 out of 5 eggsDo Not Buy

Pros: NONE

Cons: If you want customer support buy from another company. They provide ZERO phone support and will supposedly get back with you in 24 hours if you submit a ticket but I have submitted ticket on the keyboard and one of their gamepads and they never answer you.

Other Thoughts: I highly recommend not buying this product as if you have problems you will be unable to get any support from Razer.

5 out of 5 eggsAbsolutely Awesome

Pros: Great interface, comfortable wrist rest, quick and easy to set up, responsive, quiet typing, and extremely multipurpose

Cons: Not really much to say here, although it does seem a little light to me, I guess that's not even such a bad thing. Does seem to get dirty pretty easy though, and I did have to restart Synapse 2.0 a couple of times before everything was working smoothly. It does also take up two USB plugs, which is somewhat annoying, since I was already short to begin with. But for what it is, it's pretty easy to get over.

Other Thoughts: I am a huge fan of multipurpose technologies, this is a great example of that, with built in UI and app launcher, that also acts as a track pad while my Ouroboros is charging. I'm really glad I chose the Deathstalker Ultimate over some of the other options.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat keyboard

Pros: Love chiclet keyboards! best keyboard you can buy, although its pricey. Great feel and comfort. The apps just keep getting better and better. Also Razor gives you the ability to make your own apps.

Cons: Price, but in the end its worth the money!

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent yet Expensive

Pros: - Programmable Macros -- for both the dedicated macro keys and the rest
- Full RGB color support for backlit LED
- Sleek and comfortable, as long as you don't want cherry-keys
- LCD screen is multifunctional, supporting custom apps for system monitoring, etc...
- LCD screen doubles as mouse trackpad

Cons: - Razer software is notoriously buggy
- Native apps are pretty worthless
- Price
- not mechanical keys

Other Thoughts: Do not pay attention to the ridiculously poor ratings that some users have given... this is a great keyboard. Yes, it is expensive. Yes, many of its features are superfluous. However, if you are willing to drop the $, this keyboard is great.

My favorite feature is the LCD. It can be used for custom scripted applets. For example, I use the LCD to display system monitoring data (via AIDA64).

I do not like the feel of mechanical cherry-style keyboards, so I find the ergonomics to be superb.

The software is buggy, but not so bad.

Again, I just saw the rating and view 3/5 eggs to be ludicrous... so look elsewhere for more in-depth reviews.

1 out of 5 eggsTerrible

Pros: Customizable backlight is pretty swell.

Cons: Make no mistake, this is a terrible keyboard. I'm generally a fan of membrane style keyboards, so this isn't mechanical snobbery talking. The keys themselves have more lateral movement than I've ever seen, the general fit and finish of the LCD and it's associated keys is subpar at best, and the software bugged out within an hour of playing around with it.

Oh, and you can't plug it into a USB 3.0 port without the LCD glitching out.

The ONLY reason I'll be hanging onto it is because I enjoy programming for odd devices and this definitely fits the bill, but the licensing terms for the SDK (which hasn't been updated in a year) are so ridiculous that I won't be releasing anything to the public. I suspect other developers have caught onto this as well and that's why there's only a handful of apps (mostly useless unless you play League of Legends)

End result is I'll be hanging onto my 10 year old logitech keyboard in case I need to get any actual work done.

5 out of 5 eggsAWESOME

Pros: very very nice and swift keyboard and touch screen responds pretty clearly and fast

Cons: it needs more apps that you can add on to the touchcreen buttons but other than that its dandy

3 out of 5 eggsMeh....

Pros: It is pretty and has lots of functionality. I like the keystrokes.

Cons: I have had lots of problems. Razer is very good about helping, but I have had lots of problems with the touch screen and driver issues. At least I think it is driver issues, but It will randomly start showing symptoms that look like lag. It will stop accepting input and will randomly not stop inputting a character. It is like the keys are sticking, but physically they feel fine and this can happen to any key. The only ones that it tends to happen more to are the ones that are used more.

2 out of 5 eggsJust No

Pros: The design of the keyboard is creative. I like that you can program settings into it as well as change the color of the backlighting; but, that is the limits as far as this keyboard goes beyond being interesting for me. The main attraction was the SwitchBlade UI; but, I'll get to why that turns out to be more of a gimmick than a perk.

Cons: The major failure of this keyboard is the Switchblade UI. Why is this such a horrible blunder for so many users? Because the Razor Synapse 2.0 is the buggiest, flakiest software available on the web. It is so destructive, that my antivirus program marked it as a malicious software during an update and disabled it. It has even been so corrupt that it has disabled the USB and P2 support on my computer. I had to do windows recovery to restore those functions on my system. I went back and uninstalled the Synapse software, then reinstalled it again. Than I began to realize that the Switchblade UI was no glitchier than ever. If I hit anything on the UI it would glitch the displayed screen out, this means that the UI is virtually useless. So you have half a keyboard that you cannot do anything with.

Other Thoughts: I cannot in good conscious recommend this to any human being that I liked or disliked. It is putting money into the pockets of individuals who love shoving things out on to the market without properly testing it. This is very apparent with the notoriously buggy Synapse 2.0 software that you need to load the flaky UI. Avoid anything that needs that software to run, it is a death sentence for your hardware.

3 out of 5 eggsIt works, but.....

Pros: It really is a nice a keyboard. The apps that are out for it work. I don't know why other people have been having install issues with the software, but mine worked the first time I did it without any problems what so ever. The LCD is a great feature and has limitless potential. It functions as intended, and the macros work great.

Cons: As I mentioned before, the LCD is a great feature; however, Razer has a serious lack of apps for this keyboard. From what I've read, it seems this is not an open source. Which means, they will simply dictate who can create apps. If you're looking to get this keyboard because of the LCD, don't. It's really not that great of a feature. They only have a handful of apps right now that aren't real useful for games. In fact, most of the apps they have now are just useful for non gaming such as facebook, youtube, twitch, ect.... Additionally, the hand rest is a tad too small in my opinion. I have small hands too. The palm of my hands and half way off the rest. If I were to get my money back, I would simply repurchase another g19 keyboard. With their lcd screen I could at least see core temp, and voip overlays. Also, I didn't think I would miss my numpad, but I miss it a lot now. The digital numpad is ok, but it's hard to tell if you hit a number or not. It barely blinks when you hit a number.

Other Thoughts: If this keyboard had more apps, it would be fantastic. I would love to see parcers for all the top MMOs and I would love to see VOIP overlays as well. I just think Razer is handicapping this product too much. It's a shame too because having a useful LCD on your keyboard would be pretty helpful if used right with the right applications. It was a great thought, but from what I've seen of Razer and Logitech, they aren't following through with their product. To me it seems like all the companies coming out LCD keyboards are simply using it as a gimmick to produce more sells for something that is average. This keyboard and most the other LCD keyboards out there aren't worth the price.

If you want a keyboard that has macros, buy one that doesn't have an LCD. You'll save your self some money and be just as happy.
