"Not worth the price tag."

Lance B, CNET
7 October 2012
  • Pros: Looks nice and love the blue back lit keys. The sleek design is eye catching but maybe that is the problem, it is more about looks than anything else.
  • Cons: I have had this keyboard for just 3 months and it is already showing signs of wear. Feels good to type on but I get the feeling I am forced to hit keys hard to make them work. Very overpriced.

Razer Lycosa

simno, Viewpoints
9 September 2012
  • Excerpt: The Razer Lycosa is really overpriced in terms of its functionality and performance. Sure, it looks awesome but I would rather have a working keyboard than a fancy looking one. The Lycosa has LED backlight keys (which are quite dim in strong light or sunlight). You can switch between two light modes: low, WASD only, and OFF. One of the best features in this keyboard is the touchpad media keys (when they work, that is).

Not bad but has issues

rancho521, Ebay

  • Summary: Nice looking Keyboard. Bought mine used and downloaded the newest drivers off of the net. Still issues with the Media touchpad not working which seems to be the most popular complaint. So it is not much more then a nice looking back lit keyboard.

"decent entry-level"

Aidan8et, CNET
16 September 2010
  • Pros: The soft rubberized keys feel amazing for my gaming. It relieves a lot of frequent typing stress as I do a lot of computer gaming. The anti-ghosting responds spot on as do the response speed. I've tried everything short of /faceroll on the it.
  • Cons: Even with the elevation tabs, the keyboard since rediculously flat. The backlight on the keys is REALLY faint if you have any lights on in the room. With the LED off you can barely see the keys & can't see the touchpad at all.

"It's basically a Razer Arctosa with glowing rubber keys"

Danail7, CNET
26 June 2010
  • Pros: Glowing keys are life-saving in the dark, rubber-finished flat-top keys feel rather good, has a headphone + mike out put on the keyboard itself, completely customizable keys any way you like them, build quality is good.
  • Cons: Prone to finger prints, no mute button on the multimedia panel, all the extras make the cable very very bulky, WASD cluster is just for show, costs more than it offers and the USB PORT IS JUST 1.0 meaning most thumb drives and cameras won't work.

"Product is good, Razer customer service sucks"

Kioftes13, CNET
29 January 2009
  • Pros: Product looks nice, seen it and tried it in store. I like the features and the feel of the keyboard, not just for gaming. Looks very classy
  • Cons: Razer online store has charged my card but has not shipped the item. Despite their own policy (posted their site) of shipping withing 5 days or receipt of payment, 13 days later, they have not sent the purchase. Contacted them repeatedly, no result.

Alright, not worth the money

Time Lord, Amazon
25 August 2013
  • Summary: This keyboard looks nice, although feels very cheep with the low cost build quality and plastic hollow keys that lead to a noisy keyboard. The main problems I have with this keyboard is the back lighting; the keys are inadequately lit, and when the back lighting option is turned off, the letters on the keys are not visible, even in daylight!
