Summary: I purchased this keyboard for both gaming and coding, but it disappointed me so much. It appearance is decent, I'll give it that. But when typing, I couldn't feel the feedback from it and it's making noises like the keys are not lubricated enough. So if you are like me looking for a keyboard like Thinkpad or Logitech K800 which I define them as "comfortable", you will want to stay away from it. Otherwise, it's your choice.
Summary: Was looking to buy another keyboard after using my old generic Microsoft keyboard for 5+ years. My first copy of this key board had sticking enter and arrow keys that would not register inputs when pressed. The second copy had a sticking control and shift key. Would not purchase another Razer product after trying this keyboard.
Summary: I really wanted to like this keyboard, but it's on its way back to Amazon. Pros: * Very attractive design with a modern shape and a full range of backlight color options (plus the ability to shift between them automatically which is just kind of cool). Cons: * The keys are mushy, when pressed, even by notebook key standards and lack concavity which throws off touch typing.
Summary: Problem with this board is it is NOT plug n play. From what i have read im not the only one. And little solutions have been posted online. Unless your very good with software you may never get this board to work properly. Personally i tried a few different things. and still couldnt get it to work. I think razer's own employees are a bit unfamialar with how/what to say or have any real solutions on how to get the board to work properly on systems.
Summary: **UPDATED REVIEW** After one day with the keyboard, the LCD screen began having issues. The numpad for instance would get stuck on each number I pressed. For instance if it hit the number 5 it would usually result in this happening "555555555555555" countless 5's appearing. Sometimes I would hit it once and 3 5's would appear. Trying to scroll through the media app to play music was a hassle as every time I tried scrolling it would click each song.
Summary: When i unboxed this thing I was in love. Aesthetically it is EXACTLY what I want. It even feels great to type on. However, after using it for a couple days I noticed a serious problem: About every 10th keystroke, it would double register. So typing "a" once would result in "aa". This turnedd my sentences innto someething similaar to this. Every sentence there was at least 1-3 double registers. I exchanged the keyboard, chalking it up to a defective unit.
