Summary: I bought this keyboard thinking it would be great. Unfortunately that is not the case. I read a few reviews stating that sometimes the keys wouldn't press causing missing letters. didn't think much about it and thought maybe it was a defective keyboard they received. I'm going through the same issue where I'll press a key and nothing will show up on the screen. Were it not for that issue this would have been a great keyboard.
Pros: I've only had this keyboard about a week, but I must say I'm very satisfied with the purchase. The keyboard itself feels very sturdy, and the keys have no jiggle or play and typing feels extremely smooth. The lights are bright, but not too bright and with the free razer software you can change the colors or have it cycle through, which I love. The on-the-fly macro recording is great, and all the extra keys are awsome. If you play MMO's at all, or any games really, thi...
Cons: The only con I have is that it requires 2 USB ports.
Summary: TLDR: None of the keys give a very good response so my fingers largely feel blind compared to a normal or mechanical keyboard. This is actually a pretty big problem for the thumb modifiers as you hit them with the side of your thumb, so unless you put a very very large amount of time memorizing the exact position/getting used to them you're going fat finger, a lot (the thumb modifiers largely feel like 1 maybe 2 buttons instead of 7).
Summary: I slammed this keyboard before but after giving it another shot it's made me smile. Hell, even without the use of changing the color of the light or use of the macro buttons the flat smooth finish is a wonderful sight and feel. I just do not care for Synapse.
Pros: Still works. You may laugh but seriously. Compared to the g710+ (which hurt my feelings on more than one occasion) every key still works, keys haven't cracked apart, every light still works and I can see both characters clearly on every key with two. I don't type much nor am I proficient at it anyway but I would agree with that as a minus. It is marketed as a gaming MMO keyboard so no surprise there.
Cons: The Razer logo is annoyingly bright. Cut a piece of electrical tape to size and it disappears. Now turning this thing up to max brightness is perfect. Synapse.
Summary: I have been using it almost daily for a year. I am not happy with the quality. I will be upgrading to a Corsair Vengeance K95 Cherry MX RGB Reds instead.
Pros: I recommend this keyboard ONLY for gaming. The lighting is RGB, so you can set it to whatever colour you like. 5 macros on the left side. Gaming mode is quite useful to disable the Windows key, ALT-F4, and ALT-TAB during your gaming sessions.
Cons: It is a membrane style keyboard. It's hard to use for typing. The keyboard is hard to get used to as it is spaced far apart. Takes up too much space on the desk. Thumb modifier keys fell off, and I had to contact Razer for a replacement. Uses 2 USB ports instead of one. The wrist pads leave grease marks. Definitely not worth the price. I'm disappointed in this Razer product.
Pros: This keyboard is pretty good for gaming and has an aesthetically good appeal. Software is good. The additional macros are nice and every key is re-programmable.
Cons: Lighting could be a lot better. The keys aren't too responsive...especially the E key which sucks. Typing essays and papers with this thing sucks a lot because of the E key. It's not very practical for much of anything outside of gaming.
Summary: crap crap, crap and crap. Ifirst bought this keybard a few years ago. It worked great, and lasted about a year, which I consider a decent run, given the punishment I give my peripherals. I replaced i with the same keyboard -- THREE TIMES, and the three replacements have been - crap. As other people stated, keys are dropped randomly (errors not fixed in order to illustrate). Even when I bang harder than hell - the keys won't work until pressed three or four times.
Summary: I expected a phenomenal keyboard considering I absolutely love the wireless Naga mouse. Much is to be desired and I think this keyboard needs a complete redesign....
Pros: Lighting seems fine for my tastes. If it were any brighter it may be an issue for me as I don't like playing in a brightly lit room anyways. Honestly, there's not a ton I love about this keyboard.
Cons: Keys feel spaced extra far apart compared to other keyboards. You fingers will adjust but that doesn't fix the next issue. I play FFXIV and constantly need to type a quick blurb in the chat window. Unfortunately, I look like a 5 yr old typing as the keyboard consistently misses keystrokes. Not only is typing an issue but during fights like Titan Extreme I've had issues where I attempt to strafe and nothing happens which in turn guarantees my death. Purchased from a mi...
