You can get screen protectors that you can cut out of a larger sheet of them, that would be a better idea.

Why are you so worried about getting scratches on it? If it's to keep it looking good, the plastic cover will look far worse than a scratch or two.

It should be fine unless your cat uses it as a clawing mat.

Worry less and just enjoy it.

Anyone tried this keyboard with tappy FPS games like ut2004 or UT3? I suspect this should be fine for my purposes mostly doing programming and typing. I was just curious as to what other people think of it.

With blues some people will run into a problem.

For example; I don't have an issue with blues & UT3 though Crazy9000 does.

It all comes down to personal preference; though you can definitely work with it.

It's a magic switch. If you personally prefer it, the hysteresis goes away. You need strong will-power.

Hmmm, thank you. Very nice review. I'm still somewhat torn on what to do though. When I first saw the Black Widow when Razer unveiled it, I was quite excited that they were dipping into mechanical keyboards. At the same time I was also unsure on how it would work out after I bought into their stories about the Lycosa and then found out it wasn't really anything spectacular.
Don't get me wrong I love my Lycosa, but for what I paid for it I did expect it would be a bit more impressive. I've now learned to check some good reviews before hand. I haven't had any problems with the rubber coating coming off, and according to WhatPulse I've pressed approximately 6,000,000 keys since I bought it just over a year ago. I think I do type quite lightly however appart from the occasional game induced frustration when I'm having a bad day.

I just don't know if I can justify the asking price right now to replace my Lycosa when its still in pristine condition with no visible signs of wear after a years use. And all in all it appears that this Deck Legend, albeit a less "pretty" keyboard, would be a better choice for me as a backlit mechanical keyboard.

the spacebar on my keyboard doesn't go down smoothly as if theres a hitch in the switch. Is suppose to be like this? Or is it because its still new?

as you may know, ut requires a special move called "dodge"

I have this keyboard and i love it. Fast respond and backlit is so bright in 4 different tones. When i opened it, i liked how they packaged it and it had a plastic cover for protection so i used it from now on as a cover guard when i am not using my keyboard so i can keep it clean and not dusty.
I even wash my hands before i use it. I also have a Limited Edition Razer Goliathus Speed Extended. I was told by Razer Support Tech that this is only a limit time and 10,000 units or so were only made so i grabbed one from their website and upon arrival i was blown away how bigger it was. Compared to the pic i saw online.. it's HUGE! This is handy for fast fps gamers or whoever like to use for fast respond.
Here is a picture of it. Hope you guys like it.
