Razer Lycosa: nothing but regret - Page 4

post #31 of 60
I actually like the feeling of my keyboard, but im having troubles with my replacement keyboard again.

On the First one, the LED on the keyboard flashes on/off/WASD randomly and sometimes, constantly. I also had problems with keys getting stuck.

After getting that replaced from Razer, they sent me another used one and after 2 month of usage, the same problem is occurring and im getting sick of this.

Are there any keyboard similar to the lycosa at a lower price than mechanical? (I would like to try a mechanical keyboard, but price is slightly too much for me for a decent one)

The key spacing is HORRIBLE! I absolutely hated my lycosa and returned it!

Sorry for all the people that like it but its just not for some people.

only problem i have had with my lycosa was the buttons would stop working or get stuck at times, but it stopped doin that awhile ago and yes as you stated the rubber buttons have started to wear away other then that it was a fine keyboard but i preffer my razer arctosa, has the same design but no back light and i dont know what they where thinking because the keys are black writing on black keys dont make much sence when you cant see the letters and numbers properly.

the cheapest Quality mechanical keyboard I can think of off the top of my head is a Rosewill on newegg going for 99$ last i check its sold out tho.

Blackwidow can be had for like 80$ as well non-backlit I think.

No surprise there, I've had 3 razer products. Keyboard and Mouse tore up. Only one can't tear up, thats because its a hunk of metal that holds my mouse cord.

Just wanted to update this thread, my keyboard is having multiple misc keys failing to work.

and no its NEVER been wet, I used to repair electronics for a living and that was the first thing that came to mind that it was acting like it had been wet.

But I've restarted and reinstalled drivers and no go.

so my Lycosa has died in less than 4 months

I thought you were returning it. Ah well, just goes to show if you aren't satisfied with something you really should exchange it for something else.

I was def going too, but I ended up not finding/affording the keyboard I wanted in time.

so I wrote it off as my budget keyboard/backup planning to get one a couple months down the line.

i was just hoping it wouldnt die in the meantime.

I can already tell you this coating will wear off in less than 6 months.
if its the same stuff used on their mice. i have a 6 yearold copperhead that is still just as rubbery as day 1. no wear spots.

i <3 razer products. i have your feelings about all the other companies that ive owned. logitech/microsoft/steelseries etcetc..

soon enough i need to replace my g15. its just over a year old and crapping out and dropping usb signal left and right.. only 1 year warenteee.. logitech fail thats the last time i buy from them.

lol cheers for your thoughts
