I just got 5 pound logitech keyboard to replace which I actually find better to type on.
On the positive side, the lights are awesome. It feels and looks cool.
The Lycosa is a very attrative keyboard, the most aesthetically pleasing of all Razer's keyboards in my opinion. It has a gloss finish for the plastic housing and a non-slip matte finish for the keys. (Unless you buy the special edition gloss finish Lycosa which I did actually buy for someone as a gift). The keyboard is very comfortable to type with. A perfect tool for a cross between gaming and writing lengthy essays (lol). The keyboard is fairly large in size as it includes a wrist rest. This can however be taken off by removing a couple of screws on the underside and unclipping it, which is what I did as my desk already has a wrist rest. The keys are illuminated with blue light, which has three modes: Completely Iluminated, WASD illumination for gaming, and Off (no light at all) controlled by a touch button on the touch screen panel. Now... the touch panel was the feature I was most sceptical about due to the number of bad reviews I read about it constantly skipping songs etc. However I have had this keyboard for almost a month now and have had no such problems, in fact it has worked perfectly every time. A bad batch perhaps? I don't know.
The technical gaming performance of this keyboard is very good. The keys are fairly slim (descibed as slim keycap structure) meaning that it takes less force to actuate the key upon the rubber mesh found underneath providing a 1ms response time. The keys are also noticeabley softer than the normal keyboard when typing. A very neat feature is the ability to disable the windows key on demand, by simply pressing down on the Razer logo on the touch screen and tapping the windows key. This prevents that annoying screen switch when the windows menu pops up after accidentally pressing the windows key in game. Brilliant! The keyboard also has earphone-out/microphone-in jacks and a USB port, but do not be fooled by this, you do not get an extra of each, they are merely extensions from the back of your computer; and also note there are no extra macro buttons on this keyboard, only the touch panel is extra.
Overall a brilliant gaming keyboard which is comfortable to use, extremely attractive and performs like the best. If you're more of a hardcore gamer who favours customisation and response time over comfort and looks then perhaps a mechanical keyboard is preferable such as Razer Black Widow Ultimate Gaming Keyboard which provides numerous customisable keys and a reassuring click when a key is actuated. Too expensive? The Razer Arctosa Gaming Keyboard - Silver is similar to the Lycosa for less but is an entry level gaming keyboard with no illumination. But for a lovely looking keyboard, that is comfortable to type with for work, but performs extremely well when you need it for gaming you can't go far wrong with the Lycosa.
Want a keyboard that switches itself off at random intervals for no apparent reason (and has to be removed and re-attached to USB to reboot)?
Want a keyboard that decides to repeat the last key you've pressed infinitely at the most inappropriate moments?
Want a keyboard that occasionally crashes so badly that it reboots your PC?
Buy a Razer Lycosa.
Otherwise, avoid like the proverbial plague.
Plus points: It's shiny.
Negative points: As about as useful as a nun in a brothel.
Anyhoo now im left with what to replace it with? Surely not another razer after all this, hell im even thinking of selling my razer deathadder mouse in case that starts acting up like ive read people on google have been experiencing after 5 months of use. Finding a replacement keyboard is so painful as nothing looks as good as this buggy piece of crap. Logitech G110?? hmm maybe but it looks poo, roccat valo.... hmm no ive read they also have they own pandora's box of fun problems like the lycosa, seitek cyborg? nope coz they dont come with a blue led setting... sigh
Ah well this review has turned into a rant but you get the idea. Just dont buy it, just avoid razer and don't let the looks suck you in and overwhelm reliability logic.
