I've heard good things about both, but I only have experience with the G110. I used one for a while and it was definitely a nice board. However, I found the LEDs a bit dim and I couldn't stand using a rubber dome keyboard any longer so I upgraded to the Deck I have now. If you want bright LEDs and flashy design, go with the Razer. If you want a more elegant, quality board, go with the G110.

I have the Lycosa. Cooler, more elegant looking board imo with it's glossy bits and it's overall shape. Be aware that many people have had faulty Lycosa's so their reputation isn't great. I'm on my replacement Lycosa because the top right touch pad backlight of my first one was flickering, and also, sometimes certain letter keys would stop working until I unplugged the USB and re-connected it. Tbh, I could have lived with both as neither of those things made using the keyboard a big issue for me. But since I was still under warranty, I took the opportunity to have it replaced and they collected it from me, so it cost me nothing in postage. Not had any problems yet with the replacement.

G110, in my opinion. I've used both of 'em, and the G110 seemed better.

If I was going to buy one or the other, I would pick the G110. I almost bought a Lycosa when I built my signature rig, but put it into the computer instead. I think I made the right choice, because I hear that the Lycosa doesn't "age well".
I think the G110 would be a better built keyboard.

This is all personal opinion, take what you will from it. I have no experiences with either, just that I almost bought a Lycosa and don't regret for a second no purchasing it, whereas, if I were to buy a new keyboard today, I would seriously consider the G110.

I stood by my Lycosa like crazy. I loved this keyboard and am still using it. I'm on my 2nd one because I sold the first one with my last rig. I can't say the 2nd one has been able to compare to the first one though.

BE WARNED: I didn't have a single issue with my first one, but the 2nd one has had some very annoying issues. I don't know if its driver issues, but from time to time, my media buttons with start to freak out and skip songs, play becomes restart, etc. Also, lately I have been dealing with the issue of playing Minecraft and when I release the 'W' key, I continue to keep moving forward till I hit escape for a second. I am always unplugging and replugging it in.

That's why I just dropped $150 on a Filco Mechanical keyboard this morning! Can't wait for it!

Definitely G110. I tried one of the Razer keyboards last year and absolutely hated the feel and construction of it. It felt like a cheap, low quality keyboard. It looks cool, but that's not what really matters. The key are extremely thin and I did not find them pleasurable to type on, and as I just said, it felt cheaply made. I currently use a G510 and have used a few of the other Logitech keyboards in the past. They're built much more solidly but will take a few days to get used to because of the more narrow layout.

I haven't really tried the G110. But I def like the Lycosa though, I like its rather slim and elegant look. I like my good ol' G15 but the Lycosa feels very modern and nice imho, and I've grown quite fond of it.

The G110 is def a good k/b as well though, I'd try them both out if I were you.
