1 out of 5 eggs Razer Lycosa defects, 2008 - 2012. 07/29/2012

This review is from: RAZER Black USB Wired Lycosa Mirror Special Edition Gaming Keyboard

Pros:

- nice to type on, resistent keys that are not too resistent
- nice blue LED backlit keys
- small form factor; not tiny but just right, great if you don't need those extra macro keys.

Cons:

- users complained of manufacturing issues since the Lycosa debut in 2008 and they're still selling the Lycosa with those defects, despite widespread complaints

- since first week of ownership, keys 'stick', not in a physical way but a glitchy firmware way where you need to tap the offending key or unplug the USB cable and plug it back in

- occasionally key stick glitch will cause your system to blue screen if you can't unplug the keyboard in time.

Other Thoughts:

It disturbs me that Razer would knowingly sell a keyboard with manufacturing defects and not resolve them, then expect the end-user to pay for shipping costs to RMA the keyboard. In the end, users will RMA keyboards and receive defective keyboards in exchange. If people have complained of an issue in 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 and now I have the issue in 2012, clearly they haven't solved the problem especially since they've upgraded the series to a 'mirror special edition'.

I find it hard to believe that after so many years with so many threads, reviews, posts of people complaining of this issue that it's simply an isolated issue for a few users.

I'd give the keyboard a 4/5 if the internet wasn't filled with people having this issue and Razer representatives acknowledged it or offered a firmware update.
