Recently I had a tragic experience; I lost my cyborg keyboard thanks to a pet of mine who had a field day when I was out. This prompted me to go online in search of a new keyboard that would suit my gaming needs. Now I have never owned a Razer product even though I have looked on in awe at the amazingly designed products that they keep releasing. After going through the Razer website and browsing across the keyboards that they have to offer I chose the Razer anansi. I picked this keyboard up for £89.99 which is a little steep but it is a gaming keyboard so this is the price range you will be looking at for that particular niche.
This was delivered to me with a free Razer gift pack because I spent enough money apparently; this was a really nice gesture from Razer as it contained a mouse mat and other desk items. The packaging on my new keyboard was fantastic it looked great and when opened the keyboard just blew me away.
This keyboard is designed for the MMO gamer although I use it for a lot of different genres of games and it works just great. On the keyboard underneath the space bar, there are seven programmable buttons at your disposal. These seven keys can be programmed in game which makes gaming that much easier. The other keys are great on this keyboard they feel fluid like when you're pressing them and they do respond excellently. There are 5 macro keys on the left hand side of the keyboard which come in handy for making those longer gaming macros. The keys have a nice blue backlight which really makes the keys sparkle when the lights are dimmed low. The wire on this keyboard uses USB 2.0 and is long enough for you to reach the back of your computer and some.
This is a keyboard which has over 100 programmable keys as you can switch between 20 profiles! That's right 20 different profiles essentially having 20 different keyboards, I have set about 4 of these for different games and now I don't need any more. But the idea that the other profiles are there is a nice thought I suppose.
Testing this keyboard on several games such as battlefield 3, modern warfare 3, star wars the old republic and StarCraft 2 to name a few. This was a great keyboard to play games on, it had a rapid response time and the wrist guard that comes attached to it makes lengthier playing much more comfortable. The macro keys and seven programmable thumb buttons really came into their own when playing games like star wars and StarCraft because there was more to program them to.
Overall guys I am really happy with this keyboard it feels great, it runs great and the 20 profiles I'm sure will come in handy soon. I don't see the need to upgrade anytime soon because this has everything I need and more. I would highly recommend this product to anyone looking to upgrade their current keyboard or if you're looking for a really good gaming keyboard.
