Summary: decent gaming keyboard for the sale price but will be replaced soon. Edit: after 1.5 month already replaced it with a topre type heaven. Couldn't stand the no space between top row keys and Fkeys because i kept hitting f12 when trying to hit backspace.
Pros: Price, No useless side macro keys like on logitechs.
Cons: Wrist rest too large, Keys are glossy, lots of fingerprints are left behind, No space between top row keys and F keys
Summary: Out of the box I loved this keyboard. It looked awesome on my desk, all lit up green. The backlighting is fully contained by the keys with no light bleeding through on the sides. After using it for a while I found it was not all I'd hoped for. I made the mistake of installing the Synapse2 software (which you have to download from the Razer site). Bad move... It caused my computer to randomly lock up in use and always after trying to wake up from sleep mode.
Pros: Looks great, Solid construction
Cons: Synapse2 software sucks, Chicklet keys, very little feedback on keystrokes
Pros: Love the feel, being able to program keys, and the backlighting. Backlighting and programming were the two things that really made me want to buy this keyboard.
Cons: Too often when bringing system out of sleep the keyboard doesn't come up, lights are lit but cannot use the keyboard. The lights are still lit, so takes a minute to realize what has happened every time. Usually have to unplug, replug and restart system to get it to work. Also have noticed the sticky key issue. Key isn't actually stuck but wants to type w into every text field. If you're in the middle of a text field working when this happens it will forever fill in w'...
