RAZER Lycosa Gaming Keyboard


Conclusion RAZER Lycosa
So how well did the RAZER Lycosa perform in today's review?
I must admit that I was really impressed by the RAZER Lycosa. Even though it doesn't bring anything exceptionally new to the table that hasn't been done before, it does what it does well, and without feeling clunky or awkward. The included software for editing keyboard profiles and macro functions is also both intuitive and easy to use. Thankfully RAZER has also kept an eye on the software and ensured that it remains free of bloat and useless features.
Overall, typing and gaming on the RAZER Lycosa was a very pleasant experience and the rubberised keys were very responsive and comfortable to use.
The quality of the RAZER Lycosa is typical RAZER - thoughtfully designed and well implemented with a definite feeling of sturdy construction oozing from it. One thing to remember here though is how easily the RAZER Lycosa attracts dust and fingerprints. If you're anything like me and like your gear to always look its best, then you had better be prepared for some regular cleaning with a micro-fibre cloth.
Recommended Retail Pricing (RRP) for the RAZER Lycosa Gaming Keyboard comes in at US$79.99. The best price I could find in the UK from a reputable retailer was £54.63 Inc VAT from Scan Computers UK.
For our Australian readers, Altech Computers has the RAZER Lycosa Gaming Keyboard for $148.90 (inc. GST)

I've owned the Lycosa for a few months now, it is a class keyboard, my only gripes are : -

1. The extra connectivity bits on the back for headphones/USB... etc was detachable from the main cable, i have no need for either, and just gets in the way.

2. There was a luminosity control for the back light as in strong daylight it gets quite dimmed.

Apart from that it's defo class, i have no qualms about purchasing it, even for the price.Quote

I definitly would not get that only for one reason, there are no programmable hot keys on it - or are there? (Didn't read the review properly)

I am a huge fan of Hotkeys.Quote
