First, I'm not a gamer. I enjoy a good FPS but generally get pwned by kids 30 years younger than me. I didn't buy this keyboard for it's gaming features. I needed to replace my Logitech MX5000 BT keyboard because it was driving me crazy with it's connection issues. The criteria I had for the replacement was that it be wired (I've tried too many flaky wireless solutions); that it preferably have laptop style keys; that it be relatively quiet (so my wife can sleep in the next room); and that the keys have a switchable backlight (more on that later). The Lycosa met these requirements for me.

The keyboard itself is really nice looking, not too big, and very low profile. The high gloss body finish does show finger prints and dust. The keys have a matte rubber finish that feels good under the finger tips.

I'm almost a touch typist and I have been intrigued by the Das Keyboard II but I just wasn't really ready to commit to a completely unmarked keyboard. The Lycosa is actually a nice compromise in this regard because I can turn off the backlight completely and have a virtually unmarked keyboard.

Speaking of backlighting, it is true that the backlighting for the keyboard it somewhat dim, especially when viewed from a slightly slouched seating position. If you are not very familiar with the standard keyboard layout and you like to slouch when surfing or gaming, then this is probably not the keyboard for you. However, when sitting in a normal typing position the lighting is perfectly adequate even in a well lit room. I do understand the desire to want to control the brightness of the backlight. Maybe that can be supported through a driver or firmware update at some point in the future.

This is a good keyboard, in most ways. The color is a nice glossy black, somewhat sleek, back lit in a nice cold blue. I only have one real issue with it:

The rubberized coating on the keys. More thought should have been put into this, as it seems to be easy to erode. My W, A, and D keys are seriously worn through on the top, to the point that there are no recognizable characters on those keys anymore.You just see the transparent key underneath, along with the "X" shape on the underside of the keys. This was a keyboard for gamers, eh? Considering that I've had the keyboard for 7 months now , and that the erosion started after about three months, are any of the keys going to be legible in another 7 months? This coating is really substandard. I still have 10 and 15 year old keyboards in use with all the keys legible.

This is the first time I have given anything I bought 1 star. I normally research stuff I buy and am happy with what I get. However, my research on this keyboard was way off... So you're probably wondering "If there are so many positive reviews, why is this guy rating it so low?"

The answer is simple. Go to Razer's site, If you submit a positive review of their products to various sites, like Amazon, they send you free stuff. I was unaware of this until it was too late. Frankly, I'd be surprised if any of the 5-star reviews on here actually own a Lycosa. Don't believe me, hit razerzone(dot)com >> Community >> Share Your Razer Experience... I hope they send me swag for this review!

So what is so bad?

First off, this thing has a ton of well documented issues that I found out about when I started experiencing them. Google "Razer Lycosa Problems" to verify my claims. Here are some of them

- The Media touch panel (though it is nice when working properly) tends to freak out on you... For me, it happens a lot. Particularly, in my instance, the "previous" button likes to just randomly start getting hammered by a ghostly finger. So when I'm rocking iTunes at random intervals it will simply start skipping through my tracks in reverse roughly every second until it gets to the top of the playlist. You can "resolve" this by unplugging it every time this happens. Right now, it is about 5 minutes after I plug mine in. Turns out, some people have found out that you can take the board apart and carefully remove a screw to often fix issues.

- The caps lock key likes to freak out. I don't know how to explain it other than when you're playing a game, sometimes your fingers drift.

After doing a lot of research I finally decided on this keyboard (instead of the G15 or a game pa). I'm used to just using 13 dollar microsoft keyboards, so it was a lot of money for 'just' a keyboard, but so worth it!

Just the keyboard alone, minus the programmable aspects, have been great. I love how it looks when lit up (which I've had no trouble with it seeming too dim), and when my computer is off it looks good too with it's dull black look instead of a shiny plastic like most keyboards.

I also love that it's a very economic design, and especially small for a programmable keyboard. One of my concerns was that some of the other programmable keybards simply seemed huge, and I felt like they were investing too much desk space both for normal computer use and especially for gaming where I have the bad habit of shoving the keyboard to the far left to use mostly the right side.

On that note, because I'm a 'goofy footed' gamer that doesn't use the standard wsad with my left hand for movement, this keyboard was exactly what I needed. Most of the programmable keyboards I saw had the 'special' keys on the far left side, which I can't easily reach when I play games. With this keyboard you can turn ANY key into a programmable macro and it has quick and easy profile switching (and even auto-switching when a program starts up). For me this was great because I was able to turn the insert-pgdwn block of six keys into programmabed macros for my online gaming. It even let me bind macros/programs to the print screen and pause/break keys, which most games don't let you bind actions to in game so they're wasted.
