Summary: This keyboard is leagues better than the Logitech G19 (My DeathStalker's predecessor) - the display actually works regardless of how close a cell phone is to the usb cable (unlike the G19 that would start flashing the "white screen of death" when a cell phone came into proximity of the keyboard). This keyboard also has a really convenient touch-screen on its LCD display that doubles as a touch pad for mouse control.
Nice Keyboard. Chiclet keys are great for prior laptop users. Backlighting works exceptionally well.

Summary: Considering this used to be a nearly $100 keyboard in recent times, the price was right and I went with it. This is one of the few "Chiclet" keyed keyboards on the market that closely resembles all current laptop keys, thus why I went with this particular model. Having typed on Chiclet keys for the past five years, it's almost impossible to type on standard keyboards these days, so why go against the grain it was I figured.
Summary: The Razer Deathstalker Expert keyboard is, for the most part, awesome. The keys are spaced perfectly to help prevent a case of stupid fingers from ruining your run, and the backlighting really helps those late night gaming sessions. Plus key taps are fast and responsive. Some things I don't like, this thing is huge, they probly put the demensions somewhere but i didnt look first, so be prepared to make room if you already have a toght fit.
Great keyboard. If you find it during a sale, buy it with no worries!

Summary: As my first gaming keyboard, I could say that it satisfied me. The design is cool, the keys are well-spaced and the backlight (that can have its intensity adjusted or turned off) works exactly as I would expect. It is not uncomfortable to type either (at least for me, that is used to chiclet keyboards): the wrist rest, that I first though would be unnecessary and be there just to make the keyboard bigger actually feels useful.
but now I'm back and needed something better than the stock HP keyboard

Summary: I feel ashamed as I am a long time builder, had a Logitech G15 many builds ago. I walked away from PC gaming for awhile, but now I'm back and needed something better than the stock HP keyboard. Granted this keyboard is miles better than any stock keyboard, but for the price I was pretty much like, 'meh, it's big and glows green'. Pro's: large wrist guard, easy to view back lit keys. Has a built in shortcut to disable windows key while gaming.
The keyboard looks nice, but the Razer Synapse software you need to ...

Summary: The keyboard looks nice, but the Razer Synapse software you need to install with it is incredibly buggy, and a number of the apps will not work the majority of the time. The software is also an awfully optimized memory hog, and the apps included are incredibly out of date. I would not recommend this keyboard.
Summary: Unbelievably fast shipment, thing just arrived 3 days after purchase (living a long way from the UK or the US) so there's that. The keyboard itself is stunning to look at in any condition, lighting or no, the program-linking to profiles is an absolute necessity and I already used it and just on games (any program from video editing to 3D animation/modeling) The keys are a little bit louder than expected but more silent and most pleasant to touch than anything I've really...
Summary: Pros: - Fully programmable keys - Eye-catching design. - One of the few with keycaps both slim chiclet and backlit. Cons: - You can barely feel the bumps on the F and J keys. - You lose all the functionality if you don't have the software running all the time. - You have to sign in to download the software just to have acces to the Cloud (WTF?! That's useless. All the configurations should be stored on the keyboard.
