Razer Lycosa Keyboard Review

The Lycosa

In addition to the rubber-coated keys, the Lycosa features a small touch pad with multimedia controls (play/pause, stop etc), a switch for the backlight (turn on/off and a special light for the WASD cluster), and a button in the shape of Razer’s logo. This particular button selects the different user programmed profiles when pressed along the F1-F10 function keys. It’s a space saving feature because other keyboards have separate function keys that make them much bigger than the Lycosa, like Razer’s own Tarantula, and both OCZ’s Elixir and Logitech’s G15 (these two were previously tested by us).

The Lycosa also features a detachable plastic wrist rest that is anything but: it requires four screws to be detached. Come on, Razer, could it be a little more practical, like a plastic rabbet? We also think that the rubber coating could have been applied to the wrist wrest to make it more confortable.
