Razer Lycosa Keyboard - Continued
Having used this board for a month now, it has given me some good points and bad points to bring up about it. Firstly, the good things; this board is very responsive with no delay in registering keystrokes, and it is incredibly ergonomic to use too. I've always seen low profile boards like this one as trouble because they can cause your arms to ache after a while, but the feet raise this one to just the right height to let you game for hours on end.
The software that is supplied and available for download from Razer allows you to configure just about every aspect of the keyboard; even the ability to re-define the keys to assign them macros is there. This software integrates with the mouse too, allowing macros to activate. As an example, you could assign a macro for when you only have the right mouse button depressed.
This for me is what draws the line between the hardcore gaming and the uber-elite crowd, the ability to modify every aspect of the device. There is also the option to create gaming profiles that can be activated with your specified key combos like Ctrl+Alt+P(WN) that will re-map the keyboard if you're playing WOW or COD4.
Now for the bad things; the lighting behind the keys could be a little better, I feel like I'm sometimes straining to read what some of the keys are when it's late at night as the glare from a bright screen can wash out the blue letters.
I also get the feeling that this board is not 100% the same width as other boards; my fingers on many occasions find themselves overshooting letters. The flat key design also doesn't help your fingers locate the edges of keys very well, but the home key ridges are there and I guess it's down to preference and how you have learned to type.
