 Looks-TAP-nice-TAP-..but-TAP

Worked right out of the box, looks professional and feels nice.

However having read about the antighosting and 1 ms response time, the keyboard and its manufacturer understand the idea of button spamming in games.

This is a problem because the keys are highly noisy for a gaming keyboard that would be seeing lots of 'button smashing' in those frenzied moments. I bought this keyboard and expected silent keys much like cheaper keyboards offer and indeed more pricey ones.

But the keys are loud, they go "TAP TAP TAP" even as I write now. I dread to hear them when I am actually in a game!

A nice keyboard but if your'e like me and wanted silent keys or even needed them then I suggest looking elsewhere.

Made by gamers for gamers? I'm sure they have never played past 12am in their house before.

 As L33T as Razer Gear Should Be.

I got this keyboard a few months back and i must say i am very impressed, if you want a simple keyboard that looks good with its cutting edge corners and performs well whether your new to gaming or a veteran then this is it, i do like keyboards with the backlit keys like the Lycosa for its look, but sometimes the glare is just to much so this works out really nicely, the software you get with it is simple to understand and the gaming mode has been a life saver (Nothing more annoying then being in CODMW2 and hitting the windows key by accident, overall i rate this keyboard 5 out of 5 and as razer says if you want to Get L33T then buy this Keyboard. :)

 Great Keyboard

I needed a keyboard to replace my G11 after i spilled Diet coke on my keyboard. And this was a excellent replacement.
Its has laptop-like keys which are very strong, anti-spill and very responsive.
Its very easy to clean, just get a cloth and it takes about 10 seconds

 Fantastic!!!

Beautifully designed keyboard not only to use but also to look at,
easy to keep clean, easier to setup.

Personally I think this is probably one of the best out there at the moment!! maybe knock the price down to £30 but even at £42 it's still worth buying.
