so ive had this keyboard for around 6 months. this is my 2nd lycosa, both from play, and before i get on with the review, i want to say that despite these negatives, i do love this keyboard and want to buy another one but a now somewhat tighter budget puts me off.
so anyway, the first one i got was faulty in the way detailed by another review (songs skipping in itunes, back-light settings taking on a mind of their own, requiring unplug).
the 2nd i got has worked fine for the last 6 months up until recently keys have gotten stuck when pressed down, some become completely unresponsive until the keyboard is unplugged and plugged back in.
in addition, the keys i use most while gaming ( W, A, S and D, shift & ctrl for FPS games) are now completely worn of their rubber surface where the letter originally was so the backlighting just shines through the clear plastic completely.
on the bright side, the keyboard looks fantastic, feels fantastic, and works like a charm until it doesn't.
i want to recommend it to gamers of all kinds, but whether you get a reliable one or not is luck of the draw.
