Nothing refurbished about it. More like Repackaged.

Summary: I read all the bad reviews on this keyboard so I figured I purchased a refurbished one I would have one which has been already repaired and working fine while saving a couple of bucks. I WAS WRONG. On the first day of use I noticed the E Key didn't work properly. Was this even refurbished at all? More like repackaged and resold Garbage!
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.
Pros: The keyboard lights up every color possible, this would be a major pro if I was teenager and still cared about this. The thumb buttons do seem convenient, if you have the naga epic there is no need for these buttons.
Cons: The pressings on the keys are very firm. I was trying to upgrade from my 3 year old lycosa and the lycosa is a much nicer keyboard. Razer definitely let there quality slide on this product and for 100$ that is just way overpriced. Also after the first day my 1,3,4 keys all tend to stick, so I have to return this product. I am definitely ordering a mechanical keyboard now, these key pressings felt exactly like my 7$ dynex keyboard. Razer definitely let me down with thi...
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: My keyboard died within 2 weeks of ownership. I really liked the board despite the LED. The device is dead now and i cannot get it to work. Hopefully Newegg will replace the board or give me a refund.
Pros: Snappy keys, well spaced, and very nice if it worked
Summary: I love my razer Lachesis 5600 and i love my Razer Megalodon headset. The Anansi board dying on me like this has made me rethink whether i will buy another board from them as i disliked the Reclusa and the Anansi unfortunately makes me wish i just kept with my microsoft board.
Pros: The keyboard keys are nicely spaced, snappy, and responsive.
Cons: My Anansi board is dead after 2 weeks of ownership... I turned my PC on and the number keys no longer worked and now the board will not light up and none of the keys work. I have tried over and over to get the board working... but it wont.
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.
