the worst keyboard I've ever purchased

Vraesh, Amazon
29 November 2014
  • Summary: In few words, the worst keyboard I've ever purchased. 25% of the time, double characters will show up for every key press (and yes, rapid, staccato key taps not extended holding).

Expensive Brick....

Scoot65, Amazon
11 November 2014
  • Summary: Very expensive paper weight. It lasted about a year and a half before one of their driver/firmware updates turned it into a brick. Searching the web I see many people who have had this same issue. I have not been able to find a sure fix from Razer (who never answered my email).

Avoid Razer products

E. H., Amazon
7 August 2014
  • Summary: This keyboard is not worth the money. With generic keyboards costing $10-20, I expect a keyboard over $100 to be flawless. This one is not. First is the absolutely terrible, mandatory, Razer software.

Got really excited when the keyboard was waiting for me ...

Thalak, Amazon
9 July 2014
  • Summary: Got really excited when the keyboard was waiting for me a day early. Plugged it in, started typing... BAM. The "G" key works only when it wants to. Sometimes it works within 2-3 strokes. Other times, I have to push and hold the "G" key or press it 10+ times to et it to work. Very dissatisfied.

doesn't work after 8 months

Man L., Newegg
14 May 2014
  • Summary: I will never buy they product anymore.
  • Pros: work for 8 months.
  • Cons: I had 20 years computer experience. This is the first time that I see the keyboard only last less than a year. For such expensive keyboard, I hope it can last at least 3 years.

Not compatible with all games

Christina McGaugh, Amazon
28 March 2014
  • Summary: Really nice and has so many features but it doesn't work with all video games. The software also caused my husbands computer to complete crash and he had to reformat his computer not to mention it caused issues with other programming and computer setup so I had to return it.

Wow, what can I say.... software sucks

RayRay, Amazon
11 February 2014
  • Summary: Keyboard feels nice, wish it lit up. But, when I installed the keyboard, Synapse 2.0 wanted to do an update to get the drivers for the keyboard and it fails to update. I've put a ticket in with support but 12 hours later, nothing.

Great when it works! (It no longer works as it should)

Michael M., Newegg
9 February 2014
  • Summary: It's out of warranty so I'm stuck with what's relatively a paperweight. Will purchase a different brand and obviously can no longer recommend this keyboard to anyone. I should NOT have installed the Synapse software with it, either as you cannot go back to old drivers once you install the Synapse...
  • Pros: Mechanical keys, lighting, positive key press feedback...not mushy like dome (non-mechanical) keyboards.
  • Cons: Some keys register twice with one push, most notably the 'y' key in my case. Also, I'm now finding I have to unplug the keyboard almost daily as the 'enter' key repeatedly registers itself even without being pressed. This keyboard was outstanding until about 3 weeks ago.
