as far as gaming, i feel this goes to the Lycosa due to the fact I NEVER had an issue with multiple keypress sticking. The K800 seems to need me to lift-off all keys every now and again if I am doing something complicated and requiring constant keypress (like flying a helicopter in BF)

Honestly tho given the small performance issue with the K800. I forgive it because its the quietest, smoothest, easiest to type on, most aesthetically pleasing, and convenient keyboard I've used to date at home (not including all the keyboards at work, but they all suck anyway)

I recomend the K800 simply because its the best overall product. Not the best for gaming, not the best at "clicky feel" but I can still type 140WPM, game happily, have a black light that automatically turns on when my hand comes near it, and goes 2-3 weeks between charges even with sitting at the PC all hours of the day. I am very satisfied with my K800 buy it
Thank you for the in-depth review.

Okay, if the keys start wearing off please do notify me.

then again, broken record... its not that loud but it does wake people up when they pasted out. a joy to type on though
Not sure what pasted out means... but assuming you meant passed out, I'm not quite sure if the extra noise is substantial enough that the K800 would be a better purchase.

The keycaps of the U9 series are the only durability concern. The U9BL has been out less than a year, but there are no reports of any keywear yet. The U9BL-S uses the same printing process (though some legends were changed) so should be fine as well, at least for a year. We don't know how they'll stand up over two years or more.

Non-backlit versions (U9, U9PLUS, U9W) use laser+infill keycaps that do wear with constant usage, though it takes a few months.

BTW keep in mind that the cherry switches are not the buckling springs and also that there is people that uses its Thinkpad as its only PC, continuously from 2004 or so, w/o any problem to the keyboard other than a bit of shine.

But other than that, I think that a keyboard must be choosed because fits the owner's taste, not the durability.

A 60€ keyboard that supposedly last just two years, is surely better than one that cost twice, that will last ten years and that you don't like.

That said i like the UBL-S but the logitech one (I mean the wired version) is really a good keyboard, with a good tactile feeling, probably with a better tactile feeling than the Xarmor one.

I don't know, I mean the Xarmor seems like a better investment.
