Got one of these, really like it although never use the extra buttons. Just wanted a nice backlight for evening use, still looking for a mouse to go with it.

this keyboard looks well cool. hmmm worth a purchase

Tis rather nice, better than the Saitek Eclipse I used to have (that was a v1 I think, silver keys didn't really work with the backlight)

voted hot, considered buying this before, would buy now at this price if I hadn't bought the logitech comfort wireless set already.

Reclusa???

I got one of these when the last deal was posted (£14.99 play.com)
I't the BEST keyboard I have ever used and that includes my mates Logitech G25, the keys on this reclusa feel just about right.

I've had one of these over a year now and at this price it's a steal.

Have you ever used Microsoft keyboards? They are fantastic. I am typing this from a Microsft wireless keyboard, have had it for over a year, still on the first set of batteries. Very comfy typing. No funny loose buttons. Multi media keys. Try before you bash it.

need a good mouse to go with this now

At first I was going to vote it hot simply because of the ironic name, but after reading the description I now may well buy one! (_;)


think it's worth the extra getting one of these over a curve 2000 ? macro buttons seem nice.

as for gaming mouse it's not button-heavy but i've had a logitech mx518 for years and it's beautiful plus a very reasonable price, next up is a g5 and extra stuff like weights seem a bit silly

MS make some of the best keyboards and I have been through many. Currently using a battery operated one for the sole reason of it having short throw keys and therefore better for gaming and even for general use. Also own a G19 which is gathering dust and is many more times more expensive. Also have this one advertised and that is also boxed up because it has longer throw keys which really aren't as good for gaming when compared to short throw.

I have one of these keyboards - from Play for a similar price earlier in the year, and very happy with it. Like the backlight, the keys feel good, and it has a comfortable support on the front.

Cheers OP... This will make me a reclusa...the wife will go daft.. should help kill some of the cheating wee fannies, whilst playing Battlefield Bad Company 2.... All I need now is to program in some good macros.... and get more practice...

nice looking keyboard. considering buying and keeping till xmas to go with my gigabyte gm-m6880 mouse. do i need this much of a keyboard though? decisions decisions (_;)

Reclusa > curve 2000. I have the wireless curve 2000, and whilst it's alright for general typing, the keys are better spaced on the Reclusa. The only problem with the Reclusa is compared to the competition, you can't turn off the backlights, and it's hard to find a a use from some of the extra buttons and scroll. Volume control scroll is handy though along with the play (it functions a bit odd, you have to press it twice to stop) and skip buttons.

The Habu looks the part, differing reviews though. Apparently the software isn't great, but most of those reviews are fairly old so maybe they fixed it?

I m gonna get one coz ms keyboards and mice are the best for me.

good price, i too have one from the last play.com deal. the back lit keys are sweet and the wrist rest is clad in padded leather. The only minor gripe is some wear on WSAD cluster after only a few months

I have owned the Habu for about 3 years now. The early drivers were awful (wouldn't even work) but the newer ones are much better and work without a problem I find. I haven't used many gaming mice tbh but I do like the Habu.

Cheers for that, may have to get one.

thanks mate. just ordered this! i read about 3 reviews and lots of customer reviews and it looks like an amazing keyboard!! even though its 3.5 years old, keyboard technology has hardly moved on so im fine with buying an "old" keyboard :)!
