Razer Lycosa. Disappointing

Posted

Pros: Has a wrist rest, LED lights, Audio and USB input jacks on the keyboard.

Cons: Quite flimsy, Buttons feel pretty bad after a bit of use. Bad ghosting

I purchased this keyboard back in February 2011. I am still using it today (but am very near choosing an upgrade) and I cannot say I would recommend this keyboard. The buttons feel horrible and sticky and only get worse over time, especially the WASD area. Most likely because i use those keys the most. The thing that annoys me the most about this keyboard is the terrible anti-ghosting. In BF3 I use the keyboard to fly jets + helli so i use both the wasd keys and the normal arrow keys. I hate it when im trying to fly and then realize I'm not actually turning because I am holding in too many keys in. I think that is unacceptable for a gaming keyboard. I paid $145 NZ (about $120 US) for...

Razer Lycosa Mirror Gaming Keyboard

Posted

Pros: LED Backlight, touch screen, wrist rest.

Cons: Extremely flimsy, keys get stuck over time, thickest power cable I've ever seen.

This is the first keyboard I've bought to use along side my first computer. It looked good and I was taken in by the backlighting and 'Gaming' features. For the first three to four months of normal use it started to turn bad. The keys became extremely stiff and some started to get stuck. The Enter, Backspace and Shift keys refused to go down unless pressed in exactly the right way. The touch screen, while I do enjoy how it looks, started to not register my pressing it or would get stuck skipping music tracks, only fixed by physically unplugged the keyboard from the computer. At first I liked the glossy plastic and how it looked, but over time I grew to dislike it for the way it gets...

Lycosa not worth it

Posted

Pros: fun to look at

Cons: not very practical

I agree with the 'keys will randomly stop working' comment previously posted. Mine is like that too... say you're playing WoW and you use 'wasd' to run around... you'd just hold the 'w' to run forward... sometimes it will only take 1 step forward... driver issue for sure... I can either unplug it for a minute, or fiddle around with the caps lock/num lock buttons and sometimes it will come back. The rubberized coating has a nice feel but wears easily. overall more like a laptop feel with the short key strokes. I got mine for $45.00 open box at Best Buy... but it still isn't worth that much.

Pros: Flat "laptop style" key design, good aesthetics

Cons: Poor LED distribution, very plastic (cheap feel), keys will randomly stop working every now and then, LED not bright enough

This is a very simple gaming keyboard. The build quality is not that great and the overall feel of the keyboard is cheap. The poor LED distribution and brightness makes it difficult to see the keys both in the light and in the dark, also keys will stop working randomly from time to time. The keyboard does have a very nice design which may appeal to a lot, however due to its poor quality, I cannot recommend this keyboard.
