Looks to be a good price. Just a warning though that based on the picture it looks to be US layout rather than UK, it could just be that they’ve used the wrong picture but it’s quite possibly US as Razer do seem to be a bit lazy about bothering with UK layouts. Obviously this may not bother some people, but if it does you might want to check first.

Cold. No calculator button.

I've had this Keyboard about a year now, mine is UK layout so I'd assume this is to

Might be obvious but the lettering on this keyboard is incredibly faint, in a sheltered desk area I'm typing blind. So unless it's used in a well lit room or you're comfortable enough with the layout you might want to get something else

Seems to have been an updated version with white lettering (instead of rather silly black on black) judging by google images & the reviews on play. A bit pot luck which version you get?

I have a Lycosa, looks nice, keys have a rubber coating, but not the best, they tend to brake, my media keys wont work, my brothers one just wont work at all.

Letters are very faint, unless back lit.

at this price, its not too bad, so i wont vote either way

Great price, wish this had been two weeks earlier would have got this instead of a Logitech G11

Quick question. Why would you choose this over the G11? Just wondering as this is like any other bog standard keyboard, with no extra keys, so besides the price difference, any other reason to choose this over the G11?

razer will not be happy about this, suppliers give you the prices that the products should be sold at i have been told, and if they do not stick to the price then the supplier will no longer sell to them

That is price fixing and its illegal, so tough luck for Razor!

Many a company has been done for price fixing allegations, I doubt very much if razor were doing this. They can recommend a retail price but nothing says they must stick to it, if this was the case, then everything would be priced at the same price in every store, you wouldn't see offers at all unless that company told the retailer to sell it at discounted price.

whoever told you this is speaking out of there razor!

not bad at all

Not bad a price, but I would go for the Microsoft Sidewinder x4 myself for about the same price.

Not voting either way but i would at least expect this to be backlit.......I got the micro$oft razor collaboration keyboard from play and that is fantastic with backlit keys and 2 jog dials and was roughly the same price when it was reduced.

Good price for this, but think im goina go for the logitech g110, minus the lcd screen, i read its the closest think to the g19 and for £60 it aint bad

I brought the G11 for a couple of reasons mainly price...

As I am not a gamer, I just wanted a nicer looking keyboard with macros. For this reason I cannot justify spending too much on a keyboard. I managed to pick up the G11 for £29.99.

Having purchased a Razer Imperator mouse (my first Razer purchase) their keyboards were soon on my shortlist which were then ruled out only by price. Also to note this mouse has a blue LED glow which matches the blue lit keys to the G11

However, a few weeks on and some of the keys make a slight squeaking type noise when tapped. The keys need just that extra little force to register when hitting them (always editing back a missing letter) and the keys feel plasticy.

To be honest I think the G11 is the worse quality Logitech product I have ever purchased. Saying that it is still okay to use, if I had paid anything over £30 I would be well and truly annoyed.
