Summary: crap crap, crap and crap. Ifirst bought this keybard a few years ago. It worked great, and lasted about a year, which I consider a decent run, given the punishment I give my peripherals. I replaced i with the same keyboard -- THREE TIMES, and the three replacements have been - crap. As other people stated, keys are dropped randomly (errors not fixed in order to illustrate). Even when I bang harder than hell - the keys won't work until pressed three or four times.
Summary: This keyboard was great until the Razer 2.0 update, after this update the keyboard would skip letters, I put the keyboard on a system that did not have the Razer software installed and it worked without issue, but as soon as I move it to a system that has the software installed and all my macro's set, it ceased to function properly. I cannot recommend this product.
Summary: When you read this review, please pay attention to the number of missing letters from words. I will not correct the review in order to prove a point. Sometimes the keys press fine, other times you push the keys and the letters do not register. I am about to jun this keyboard based on number of times I have to go back an insert letters into emails and searches. Some times auto correct is a help and adds the letters, as I noticed in this review.
Summary: This keyboard had a software issue that made it worthless and I have been trying to get Razer to honor the warranty. There is no 1800 number. You have to email back and forth with them forever and they ask you stupid questions like, is it plugged in! Are you kidding me! No ive been magically using an unplugged keyboard for 8 months! Im sure they will charge me to ship it back and who knows how long it will take, if they ever replace it. Never again.
Summary: I bought this with high hopes.It replaced a Logitech G-15. It arrived on schedule...I plugged it in and my windows found the drivers and it worked perfectly. The problem arose when I downloaded the firmware updater directly from Razer.Since then the keyboard is stuck in gaming mode,windows no longer can find the drivers or the keyboard.
Summary: I purchased one of these from Best Buy hoping I would get one without the sticking key problem. I was unlucky, apparently, because within 15 minutes of use I experienced the sticking key problem. The key does not stick mechanically, but the function does. It's very frustrating. I took my initial buy back to Best Buy to exchange for another Anansi that turns out to have exactly the same problem. This does not seem to be an isolated problem.
Summary: As much as I love the 3 Razer mice I have and the BlackWidow Ultimate keyboard for my Mac's, I just can't say a lot of positive things about the Anansi. The top-3 flaws are: 1. Keys are narrow and not responsive. Regular guys will miss keys, guys with large fingers will double-hit. But that's not all - often time you hit straight and nothing happens. You just can't type fast. It is as if the keyboard trails. 2. The colored keys are a total marketing farce.
Summary: I love the Naga mouse, its great Add-on for Warcraft, its feel and construction...and I was very excited when Razer announced the Mac version of the Anansi, waited months for them to produce it, and then I refused to buy it from Razer directly because their return policy is lousy. So hooray, Amazon finally has the product. As with all Razer products, very nicely boxed...too bad my N key was dead out of the box.
Summary: Like the G510 i reviewed, this keyboard suffers from keys that are far too firm, meaning running about in games, such as World of Warcraft become a chore, and a chore causes stresses on your fingers, stresses supposed to be cut out by having a gaming keyboard in the first place. Don't buy this or the G510 unless you have a very firm hand, it won't do you justice as the keys are lifeless and unresponsive unless you are.
