Thanks. It is rather sexy. I almost just want to sit here and look at it rather than use it. I have also noticed typing on it I have made fewer errors in keystrokes than on my logitech. Usually the backspace button is my best friend every other word. So much so that it has begun to feel dull on that keyboard and sticks sometimes...

Edit:

Also matches the system~

To be honest mate, I prefer the laptop style keys on my lycosa and that is one of the main reasons I got one.

Yes it was expensive but I like the blue backlit keys, how the keys feel and also how well I game on it.

You didn't pay for it, it is a nice keyboard, nuff said.

Merry Christmas

The Lycosa is great, I have one myself. though I am using the G15 at the moment, it is still a wonderful keyboard.

However, I just think you should know, the USB port on the back of the Lycosa is mostly non working (On most of the Lycosa's manufactured, at least). They audio and headphone jacks are not too shabby, though you might get a little bit of static.

And as one of the posters on the previous page said about his D key, the same thing has happened to my shift key. It wears out pretty quickly, but if you can overlook that, its a bliss.

P.S. its also a bit loud to type on. heh

Yea, my logitech had a worn wasd area. It was the the keyboard eraser was in town XD.

I haven't tested the USB port yet but I think I'll try it later on.

Edit: Plugged my android phone into the keyboard and it works like a charm~

I am skeptical of that Dell at work being mechanical, though an AT101 isn't exactly the pinnacle of mech boards anyhow.

Also, if you use backspace a lot, I'd suggest remapping Caps Lock to Backspace, since it is a generally worthless key in my opinion.

And if you think the Lycosa is loud to type on... try MX Blues

As stated before.. I really doubt its a mech.

If you really want a keyboard that will last you, get a mechanical.

If thats what you really want.

Mechanicals last forever just about.

Infact the reason I suggested upgrading in the first place is because there are ALOT of people out there who have had problems with the lycosa after 8/9 months. :/ Or more commonly right after the warranty goes out.

You don't have to take the advice and I hope if you keep your lycosa it works well and last you forever.

However, I considered it myself and was told to spend another 30$ on the rosewill RK-9000.

I am not trying to push the idea or submit to some sort of mechanical keyboard fanboyism but, why pay 70$ on a keyboard that is in the long run just another rubber dome keyboard using a grand total of 20$ worth of materials to make?

When you can pay 80$ and get more actual value for what you get inside the keyboard? each key in the black widow has a switch that is more expensive than the cheap laptop switch the lycosa uses. Your getting a lot m ore for your money with the black widow.

I am not trying to force a preference on you but, Its been suggested and it is really, really good advice.

Either way whatever choice you make, good luck.

@Khaotik55

Thanks. I'm glad someone caught it.

I love my Blackwidow. I don't think I would ever voluntarily go back to a non-mechanical keyboard again.
