STARTED FAILING AFTER A FEW MONTHS OF LIGHT USE

Matthew B., Newegg

  • Summary: keys are allot louder than expected and the keyboard feels very cheap.
  • Pros: NONE
  • Cons: Started having issues with the shift keys getting stuck a few months after buying it. Seemed to not happen all the time so I wasn't too worried. After that allot of keys started failing. I had to stop using it all together and went with a Logitech. This was my 2nd and last Razer product I will ev...

For the person who is coming into this purchase %100 blind

  • Summary: -This keyboard has Razer orange switches not Razer green, so don't expect the satisfying clicking that you get with your regular mechanical keyboard. (If you didn't already know.) -This keyboard does not have a number pad to the far right or the programmable macro keys on the far left.
  • Pros: -Razer. (Nuff said.) -Portable/compact -Sturdy/solid -Razer logo lights up green -detachable cable from the back of keyboard
  • Cons: -None. -None. -None. -Ninguno -Nada -Zip -Zilch

  • Pros: Love the feel and design of this keyboard. Enjoy all the great little features it has.
  • Cons: Started having the double/triple typing of the letter "h" only after owning this keyboard for a few months. I knew of this issue when buying the keyboard, but still purchased. It's quite annoying having to constantly go back and delete characters even though you only hit the letter once. Personal...

Piece of Absolute Excretion

Anonymous, Newegg
5 December 2015
  • Summary: Just don't. For mechanicals would recommend any recent & decent Corsair, CM Storm, Gigabyte, ASUS, possibly Logitech as well. However I do not recommend Steelseries for their keyboards, but their mice are quite amazing namely Rival and Sensei. Logitech mice are quite nice as well.
  • Pros: Detachable braided cable, nicely fitted carry sleeve, practical range of macro functions (on Windows), macro key and gaming key actually work, decent to use and anti-ghosting is nice. Somehow looks alright when clean. Rubber feet are good.
  • Cons: Detachable cable's keyboard connector end became very difficult to connect after about 2 months, need to twist it in specific ways very often. Made of extremely cheap materials, horrible keyboard height and a 1/4 of a hand rest that is completely useless. Plastic casing extremely easy to get dirt...

Feels great, but wears easily.

Nicholas B., Newegg
2 December 2015
  • Summary: While the product didn't last long, I was given the option by customer service to send it back for a full refund, but I was unable to send it back due to personal issues.
  • Pros: Feels amazing to use. Clicky noise are satisfying when used and macros work well and reliably.
  • Cons: Many of the keys became faulty after a couple months of use. If you play a game that requires extreme use of specific keys (WASD games, Osu!, Starcraft, etc) be careful when using. Extreme use of my Z and X keys resulted in them becoming unresponsive after a couple months of use.

not needed

RYAN H., Newegg
11 October 2015
  • Summary: only buy this if you hate your money
  • Pros: it is a well made keyboard
  • Cons: This keyboard is not worth the money, I have never used a mechanical keyboard before and wanted to try one out. Put simply this is not worth the investment. It is not better than a rubber dome keyboard in any way, this item is not in any way worth the cost. Go to a coffie shop and buy 30 drinks, ...

Good keyboard, poor software

David N., Newegg
24 September 2015
  • Summary: The keyboard is very good, if you figure out how to program macros outside of Razers software, or in the end really do not care about macros. In the end, do your research before buying any device that has software tied to it.
  • Pros: This keyboard, as far as just the keyboard, is great. Keys are responsive, is solidly built, feels like it will last for quite a while. Also a pro is the headset/mic connection and USB pass-through on the right hand side of the keyboard. If you use a wireless mouse, this is a perfect spot for the...
  • Cons: Razers software for configuration is where everything goes downhill. The software is a pain to install. For me, it constantly froze, crashed, or just sat doing nothing. Sometimes it would install, then say there were updates, and freeze during updates. Not only are you tied to the software for co...
