Summary: I have owned this keyboard for a year now. I was looking for a Backlit keyboard to match my computer when I bought this one and really loved the aesthetic of the Lycosa. I read many reviews and they all seemed to have similar complaints. Either there were issues with the touch pad spam opening the media player or the keyboard would lock up and have to be unplugged to reset it. Maybe I was unlucky but I have both problems.
Summary: I got this keyboard for a new gaming set up. Well this keyboard has many driver and some software issues. They keyboard gets way to dirty fast, and i try to keep everything as clean as possible as i can. Its just hopeless with this keyboard. I has don't like the typing feel of it. Its lacks the response on giving you feed back through the keys. I will NOT be buying another Razer keyboard, but i will be open to a razer mouse because i feel like they are good.
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.
Summary: The Razer Lycosa is very, very nice looking out of the box, shiny and whatnot. but there are more finger prints on it 10 minute after you open it then in an episode of CSI. the software makes it really easy to change default keys to macros but what keys can you macro if you play an fps? every key within 2 keys of WASD is used, that only leaves the keys to far away to use as macros. the only key i could find to use was the caps-lock.
Summary: This is a good keyboard, in most ways. The color is a nice glossy black, somewhat sleek, back lit in a nice cold blue. I only have one real issue with it: The rubberized coating on the keys. More thought should have been put into this, as it seems to be easy to erode. My W, A, and D keys are seriously worn through on the top, to the point that there are no recognizable characters on those keys anymore.You just see the transparent key underneath, along with the "X" shape...
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!
Summary: It collects finger prints very easily. For the first few weeks it would constantly open media player on it's own and keys would repeat indefinitely until I unplugged the keyboard and plugged it back in. I haven't had any problems the last few days though. Other than these problems the keyboard has been pretty good.
Summary: I bought this keyboard expecting the same quality as my Razer mouse. The packaging was extremely impressive and the lead to the keyboard looks very sturdy. Some of the issues I have is that the mirrored finish makes it really hard to see the different keys when they are not illuminated.
