Designed and engineered especially for the MMO gamer, the Razer Anansi is the world’s first keyboard that raises your level of gameplay by giving you the power to instantly use up to 7x more commands and abilities over the current ±12 ability keys you now have. Its seven thumb modifier keys located below the space bar allow you to actuate every possible combination of modifier key (shift, ctrl, alt) in total accuracy and comfort using a single key stroke, exponentially expanding the repertoire of spells, abilities and macros you have at your command.

From the casual MMO gamer to the serious hardcore raider, the Razer Anansi will take you to the head of the pack in both PVE and PVP action. Combine it with the Razer Naga MMOG mouse to use the Razer Anansi’s 7 thumb modifier keys seamlessly with the 12-button mouse keypad, giving you an unprecedented level of battle control while dual-wielding the world’s most phenomenal weapons for dragon slaying dominance.

Seven thumb-based modifier keys allow you to increase the number of commands you are able to execute from your current ±12 ability keys to 7x that number, allowing you to both instantly and effortlessly actuate every possible in-game spell or ability and still have room for dozens of your own custom macros.
  • newegg 100+ programmable keys with on-the-fly macro recording The Razer Anansi’s fully-programmable keys allow you to further expand your repertoire of boss-killing macros, giving you total control with convenient and instantaneous command executions.

2 out of 5 eggsOnly for gaming

Pros: I recommend this keyboard ONLY for gaming. The lighting is RGB, so you can set it to whatever colour you like. 5 macros on the left side. Gaming mode is quite useful to disable the Windows key, ALT-F4, and ALT-TAB during your gaming sessions.

Cons: It is a membrane style keyboard. It's hard to use for typing. The keyboard is hard to get used to as it is spaced far apart. Takes up too much space on the desk. Thumb modifier keys fell off, and I had to contact Razer for a replacement. Uses 2 USB ports instead of one. The wrist pads leave grease marks. Definitely not worth the price. I'm disappointed in this Razer product.

Other Thoughts: I have been using it almost daily for a year. I am not happy with the quality. I will be upgrading to a Corsair Vengeance K95 Cherry MX RGB Reds instead.

3 out of 5 eggsGreat Keyboard for gaming but that's it.

Pros: This keyboard is pretty good for gaming and has an aesthetically good appeal.
Software is good.
The additional macros are nice and every key is re-programmable.

Cons: Lighting could be a lot better.
The keys aren't too responsive...especially the E key which sucks.
Typing essays and papers with this thing sucks a lot because of the E key.
It's not very practical for much of anything outside of gaming.

Other Thoughts: Would not recommend for students!

2 out of 5 eggsMMO Kind of, Typing NO!

Pros: Lighting seems fine for my tastes. If it were any brighter it may be an issue for me as I don't like playing in a brightly lit room anyways. Honestly, there's not a ton I love about this keyboard.

Cons: Keys feel spaced extra far apart compared to other keyboards. You fingers will adjust but that doesn't fix the next issue.

I play FFXIV and constantly need to type a quick blurb in the chat window. Unfortunately, I look like a 5 yr old typing as the keyboard consistently misses keystrokes.

Not only is typing an issue but during fights like Titan Extreme I've had issues where I attempt to strafe and nothing happens which in turn guarantees my death.

Purchased from a military store and plan on returning keyboard as soon as replacement arrives.

Other Thoughts: I expected a phenomenal keyboard considering I absolutely love the wireless Naga mouse. Much is to be desired and I think this keyboard needs a complete redesign....

2 out of 5 eggsGaming, Si! Typing, No!

Pros: The programmable gaming keys are excellent, a real boon to any serious gamer. I find the back lighting pleasant: not too bright or too dim and the color adjustment has a broad spectrum and is easy to use. The on-screen programming in the Razer Synapse UI is very simple and intuitive. For gaming I couldn't be happier.

Cons: As happy as I am with this keyboard for gaming I absolutely detest it for typing. I find it virtually impossible to find a correct, constant typing pressure. I'm not a super-fast typist but the number of keystrokes that fail to generate a character on my screen would slow down my typing to a snail's pace regardless. Keys will fail to engage and activate their character if pressed lightly or hard and sometimes in between. Capitals seem to have the worst problem which may relate to the fact that the lighting color changes when one presses the shift key. That's just a conjecture but the near certainty of a dropped initial cap has to have some cause. As an example, I typed the "I" that begins the second sentence here 3 times before it registered.

Other Thoughts: I got this keyboard as a gift from a very dear friend after my cat upset a mug of tea in my old keyboard. I've had a Razer Naga mouse for several years and can't say enough that's good about it. I also am a storyteller who tells several stories about the trickster spider, Anansi so I was primed to love this keyboard on several levels. If it were simply a game pad it would have a 5-Egg rating. I am a very serious gamer so the dedicated keys are a serious help. Unfortunately the problems with typing are so frustrating that I could not recommend this keyboard to anyone. I wish it were otherwise. I really do but when it takes minutes to type a few simple sentences due to the dropped letters 2-Eggs is a gift.

5 out of 5 eggsNice keyboard for almost every use

Pros: To start off i can use this keyboard for every use i have for it. I can play MMORPG's on it FPS games and i can edit easily. This keyboard has and extra 12 keys for your customization. Also you can link a program to it so once you open said program it automatically changes all the key board settings to that program. Honestly this is a great keyboard and i would rather have it than a mechanical any day.

Cons: One con is that the adjustable heights are to far apart. What i mean is that its hard to go high and then straight flat is to hard to type so its just a personal issue.

3 out of 5 eggsNot bad, but could be better

Pros: *RGB backlit, allows you to customize colors to your liking
*Buttons are sturdy and well placed
*Doesn't feel cheap

Cons: *I don't like the fact that the media buttons are not separate, there are cheaper keyboards that have the media buttons separate.
*The backlights aren't the best, I can't replicate the blue lighting on the Deathadder mouse.

Other Thoughts: I wish I bought the Corsair K70; it's perfect.

5 out of 5 eggsBest Keyboard I've Owned

Pros: Just about everything!

Cons: The one and only complaint is the thumb keys use a laptop style mech and while cleaning (removing keys) the small plastic tab can break easy. The lighting could be a touch brighter, but not a deal breaker.

Other Thoughts: The Dual USB plug while takes up an extra usb slot, I've had no issues on a full pc having it take one extra up. It wouldn't work well with a laptop. I've owned this one for over 6 years, and would only replace it with a newer Anansi or maybe a BlackWidow Ultimate.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat keyboard

Pros: I use it for my desktop, and although I'm not a gamer, it's great. The keys are smooth and the keyboard itself is sturdy. I spilt water on it and it still works just fine.

Cons: It seems to have the keys spaced out more than most keyboards, not too big of a deal though.

Other Thoughts: I don't use the keybindings, but I use it with a linux machine. There doesn't seem to be a linux version of the software that does keybinds and color changing, so it just does the default spectrum shift.

1 out of 5 eggsRazer, 3 strikes your out!

Pros: Looks and works good for a while

Cons: I bought one for my wife, an occasional MMO gamer and it is acting up. The "2" is intermittent. it is out of 1 year warranty. The Razer website says they dont repair them, buy another one........I dont think so! I had a Razer Lycossa Keyboard and it worked over a year and when GW2 came out it started ghosting, after trying everything, I had to use my old Logitech (no lighting).
My son-in law also has an Anansi that he says it is to the point that you cant hardly enter a password, TrasH.
3 strikes your out Razer.

Other Thoughts: We all have Razer Mice devices that work reliably, but stay away from Razer keyboards, unreliable.

2 out of 5 eggsNot happy whit it

Pros: Kyboard font looks awesome (anoyying for my cousin)
7 thumb keys are more useful then you think
"M" keys are good if you can reach it
volum controls are good

Cons: shift key is really hard
only 3 backlight brightness level
space bar and keys starting to wear out (get bright) after 1 week of use
requires 2 USB ports
hard to clean and gets dirty easily
backlight isnt bright
had some wasd keys problem (my char keep running for itself)

they say "Designed for gamers" but i dont really think this is usable for games really !

Other Thoughts: the WASD keys problem fixed by Upgrading the firmwares but it was kind of dissapotion to see a gaming keyboard has such problem.

keys start to wear out super fast , and M keys are hard to reach for me ! (i play violin from when i was kid ! so my little finger is long !)

the keybaord sceen also is super hard to clean

takes time to boot at start, i ahve dualboot and somtimes i need to restart my pc to get to the BIOS

overall it looks cool! and im not that dissapointed.

also dont really get interested in backlight, it was cool only for a day and got normal for me and i almost never used it.

shift key is hard ! also keys make loud sound
