Summary: Did not realize I would have to change my typing style to accommodate one keyboard. Other than that, it is aa nice keyboard, but I think I'll be moving up to the Black Widow next time.
Pros: Colorful, nice-looking and sleek. I like the chiclet keys, coming from the Lycosa, which required a harder key press, however I find myself getting repeat keystrokes with the lightest of touches.
Cons: Only the repeat keystrokes, which could be a result of a heavy-handed typing style. Now I have to proofread every single entry. Keypad included. Simple things like logins or zip codes can't be entered without watching the screen. I had to take an egg off because of this.
Summary: other than all that, it still works. i'd give it 3 stars if i paid half as much for lack of quality. it will get 2, for not breaking thus far. there's really nothing at all special about it but it's just a working keyboard.
Pros: i bought it because i've always been used to laptop-style keys and it's hard to find in a gaming keyboard. as far as i can tell this is the only gaming keyboard with this style of keys.
Cons: the keys really grind against the side of their pits, and sometimes it makes them harder to press in. i've owned this for about a month or two and the keys are making squeaking sounds now as they grind, like squealing tires. plastic on plastic. you can just feel it, makes you want to lift your ha...
Excerpt: This was a gift for my grandson. He specifically asked for this model. After waiting for 3 weeks to receive my order from anothwe company and a run around from 3 customer service reps I went online and found B&H. I ordered it on Monday and received it Tuesday afternoon with no charge for shipping.
Summary: Overall I like the keyboard. It matched my mouse and I like Synapse even if a lot of people don't. My main problem is the plastic cable and while trivial, it bothers me and I will most likely be getting a different keyboard. But I would definitely recommend this one.
Pros: -Thin, quiet keys (but not chiclet) -Matches my DeathAdder mouse -Synapse 2.0 seems to work pretty well
Cons: -Cable is very thick plastic and not threaded like my mouse. I will most likely end up buying a new keyboard eventually because of this.
Summary: This is my first of two Razer products I bought today. I bought it because to replace a stock Dell keyboard which was noisy and bothered my other half with the typing. This keyboard is a good compromise between having a laptop type chic-let plank and a die hard mechanical plank.
Pros: Beautifully designed keyboard by Razer. I wouldn't knew that this is a refurbished one if I hadn't been told.
Cons: This is only a problem for me: I was originally hoping to get a keyboard that resembles the feeling of a laptop keyboard (this looks similar). It turns out to be a mechanical keyboard, which is still great
