Razer Lycosa Mirror Gaming Keyboard Review

Razer Lycosa Mirror Special Edition Gaming Keyboard

Razer recently launched the special edition of razer lycosa , the new razer lycosa mirror gaming keyboard , Lets see what are its features , pros and cons ,

 Product Features

  • Enhanced Backlight illumination with selective anti-ghosting
  • Fully-programmable keys with macro capability, 10 customizable software profiles
  • One Integrated USB extension port, earphone-out and microphone-in jack
  • Gaming mode option for deactivation of the windows key

The Good

  • The Razer Lycosa keyboard looks real sleek and shiny. The finish is very shiny and polished like some new HDTVs you see.
  • The backlighting on the keys is really well lit. It looks like all the keys are glowing naturally instead of being lit. When you have the backlighting turned off, it looks solid black, which looks really cool. The keys won’t light when on standby or powered off.
  • The keystroke is somewhat short which you will probably like. It is halfway between a regular keyboard and a laptop’s keys without being too close.
  • There is a macro program you can use to change key functions, disable keys, and enable macros that automatically activate when you start certain games. Best use, you can turn off the windows button or any other button you want.
  • You can enable just WASD lighting on your keyboard for gaming, which actually helps a lot.

The Bad

  • The glaze mixed with short keys can cause typos. It might just take some getting used to if you have been using a standard keyboard.
  • Although the backlighting function is awesome, the lighting on the Caps, Number, Scroll buttons is really bright. Too bad there isn’t an option to disable certain lights.
  • When you switch off the back lit, you can barely see the letters on the board. but if you kept the light on, soon your eyes will feel kind of dizzy.
  • Fingerprints can be a problem for this keyboard. You will notice them in a really well lit room. They do include a nice microbiber cloth for getting rid of your smudges.

Conclusion

If you can look past the little annoying things like the fingerprints on the keyboard and getting used to using it, you should be happy with this Razer Lycosa Gaming Keyboard. It does not have some of the problems that some people have had with other razer keyboards. One of the problems that you might have getting used to is is the annoyingly bright number lock. It does come with a headphone, mic, and USB jack in the back of it. The board also comes with legs to prop it up a little higher. The cord is also a little longer than a standard keyboard and the extra ports cord are all given enough rope to let you plug them in comfortably.
