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.

1 out of 5 eggsWaste of Money

Pros: Keys feel solid, and is able to take a certain amount of abuse. Some say it's large, but it fits my larger than average hands quite well. Mod Keys on the left are pretty easily configurable with the Synapse software, and drivers are kept up to date pretty easily. Mod Keys on the bottom are pretty accessible as well, but very sensitive. I've found myself hitting them on accident quite often, but may not bother others.

Cons: I'm typing this cons section without any useof the bckspacebutton. This should give you an idea of how often the missed keystroks are. Some say that drivers will fix the issue, but I have kept my drivers up to data nd am still seeing this issue. akes typing passwords VRY annoyingly hard. It almost seems as if the faster you type, the more often the missed keys will occur. Being consistent with the keys aslo is difficult because sometimes the keys end up showing up late. No support on this issue that I know f.

Other Thoughts: I think the Shift key changes the lighting to an alt key, but I think that might be where the missed keystroke problem originates from. I've had issues with other key combinations like Ctrl-Alt-Del or Windows+R. Not being able to guarantee that keystrokes will make it to the system kills realtime response uses such as gaming. Slows Programming and text editing to an abysmally annoying crawl. Almost better off using a typewriter.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks like it should.

Pros: I use mine mostly to play FPS games and have never had it remap or keys stick. Very good response time and remapping a breeze.

Cons: Paint on keys is starting to where off on some of the more used ones. Some of the lighting changes do not make much of a difference in a dark unlit room.

Other Thoughts: Great keyboard overall.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great 3 Years

Pros: Thumb-activated mod keys, tough keyboard, works for three years and counting.

Cons: Rather large.

Other Thoughts: The thumb keys are amazing both for gaming keybinds and for office work - I'm an English teacher, so I need to hit Ctrl+Alt+M a *lot* for commenting in MS Word, and this keyboard saves my left hand the trouble of making the Borg Claw (seriously - put your pinky on Ctrl and your thumb on Alt, then freeze your hand and turn it around to look at it) about three thousand times per semester.

More importantly, this keyboard has survived countless Gamer Tantrums and Windows Update Ambush Tantrums without so much as popping a key. Three years and going strong.

1 out of 5 eggsI made account to give this review.

Pros: You can use it to write on... The text on the keys is ok. That's about it.

Cons: Never buy it. NEVER buy this useless thing. Really bad quality and unrealiable keys. I lost 5+ cs:go matches because of this keyboard.
Slippery keys. Hard to clean. Bad placement of extra keys.

1 out of 5 eggsRazer Anansi is Unreliable & Buggy

Pros: Given that this keyboard has known issues that can cause the keys to completely remap and unregister in the middle of a gaming session I can not give it any pros.

Cons: Unreliable keyboard for gaming. I've had this keyboard specifically for gaming and it has been a nightmare from the get go. The keys will suddenly out of nowhere completely remap. What I mean is the "D" key all of the sudden will stop working and reassign to lord knows what.

I've spent hours trying to fix this through Driver Updates, Updating my language settings (as was suggested by tech support) nothing works... let me rephrase, what I find will work is physically pounding the keyboard. Literally banging on it with my fist. This issue has happened a total of 4 times but now recently it's happened twice in the past week.

Fortunately I have a $20 keyboard that is about 7 years old that I can plug in and muddle finish whatever it is I'm doing.

Other Thoughts: I'm not alone with this issue. I didn't read all the comments here on Newegg but I did read some. I would not recommend this particular model of Razer. I love my Razer Naga Mouse and I want to love the keyboard because it is very beautiful but so unreliable and frustrating.

Think twice before purchasing this keyboard.

5 out of 5 eggsLove this Keyboard!

Pros: I've only had this keyboard about a week, but I must say I'm very satisfied with the purchase. The keyboard itself feels very sturdy, and the keys have no jiggle or play and typing feels extremely smooth. The lights are bright, but not too bright and with the free razer software you can change the colors or have it cycle through, which I love. The on-the-fly macro recording is great, and all the extra keys are awsome. If you play MMO's at all, or any games really, this keyboard for the price is perfect.

Cons: The only con I have is that it requires 2 USB ports.

4 out of 5 eggsI used to hate it.

Pros: Still works. You may laugh but seriously. Compared to the g710+ (which hurt my feelings on more than one occasion) every key still works, keys haven't cracked apart, every light still works and I can see both characters clearly on every key with two. I don't type much nor am I proficient at it anyway but I would agree with that as a minus. It is marketed as a gaming MMO keyboard so no surprise there.

Cons: The Razer logo is annoyingly bright. Cut a piece of electrical tape to size and it disappears. Now turning this thing up to max brightness is perfect. Synapse.

Other Thoughts: I slammed this keyboard before but after giving it another shot it's made me smile. Hell, even without the use of changing the color of the light or use of the macro buttons the flat smooth finish is a wonderful sight and feel. I just do not care for Synapse.

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.
