Great idea, okay execution

Jeff the aeroE, Amazon
27 February 2015
  • Summary: TLDR: None of the keys give a very good response so my fingers largely feel blind compared to a normal or mechanical keyboard. This is actually a pretty big problem for the thumb modifiers as you hit them with the side of your thumb, so unless you put a very very large amount of time memorizing the...

Great Keyboard for gaming but that's it.

KYLE M., Newegg
5 December 2014
  • Summary: Would not recommend for students!
  • 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.

Not bad, but could be better

Bakkr S., Newegg
7 July 2014
  • Summary: I wish I bought the Corsair K70; it's perfect.
  • 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.

Button issues

Zawayix Falconer, Amazon
21 March 2014
  • Summary: I bought this keyboard because of the color cycling lights (which are amazing!) and the extra keys are really nice. I only had 2 problems: 1) When I first got the keyboard, the keys seemed very hard to press.

Decent

Patricia D., Newegg
29 December 2013
  • Pros: Cool looking keyboard, and great while it worked like it was supposed to. I didn't buy this off Newegg and forgot to read reviews.
  • Cons: After about a month of minecraft, bf3, etc, the left shift key began to stick. I realized that if I push down in a specific area, it works slightly better. If I can, I'm going to see if I can return the keyboard. If the key failure can get fixed, i'll say this is a decent product.

kinda weak

Carly S., Newegg
4 October 2013
  • Pros: smooth look, multiple back light options, better than a basic key board, razer software works nice and feel legit.
  • Cons: some keys didnt work regularly, matte finish looks nice till you type on it for a few hours, then keys look dirty and greasy (despite the fact my hands are clean all in all). key action is weak and probably relates directly to the malfunctioning keys, back lighting is VERY dim, the extra keys bel...

Not that great.

Alex Denofre, Amazon
27 September 2013
  • Summary: I ordered this product a month ago and have decided to return it due to it's lack of good construction. The aesthetics are amazing, along with the extra buttons and 16-million color backlights, but the performance does not match up with those qualities.

Solid but dark

Michael G., Newegg
10 February 2013
  • Summary: If you want a bright, back lite, programmable keyboard I would go with the blackwidow. It's a little more in price but the features and stability of it make it a much better choice.
  • Pros: It's a decent keyboard. The key pushes are very quite.(which is nice if you have a room mate or something) It's programmable "m" buttons and the thumb buttons under the space bar are a nice touch. Where this really shines is in the programmable back lighting. You can choose any color you want!
  • Cons: This keyboard is not without it's faults though. I bought it mainly for the plethora of back light colors, however upon plugging it in I was disappointed at how dim the back lighting is on this keyboard. Even on the highest setting I had to squint to see light coming from the keys. -1 egg. Also, ...

Decent but not worth the price

Michal H., Newegg
5 October 2012
  • Summary: i returned this keyboard for a black widow ultimate that i got for the same price and i haven't regretted it one bit.
  • Pros: this is a nice keyboard dont take me wrong, it has a huge amount of features, it feels great, and the back lighting can turn to any color you want. its also a pretty sturdy keyboard.
  • Cons: now it is a pretty expensive keyboard for not being mechanical. also the backlighting is rather dim too (hard to really appreciate it in the day time)

Defective keyboard.

Raphael B., Newegg
19 August 2012
  • Summary: I'd probably go with a black widow or mechanical keyboard of some other kind if I were given the chance to go back, but if and when the anansi works, it's great.
  • Pros: The keyboard is great at what it's designed to do: that is, be the ultimate MMO gaming keyboard. The thumb modifiers are so good, that you have to remind yourself to use them, because having so many easily accessible keybinds is unheard of.
  • Cons: If this keyboard was mechanical, it would truly be the ultimate keyboard; but it's not, so it lacks in the area of accuracy and feel (not quite a deal breaker though). My keyboard shipped from newegg defective, any stroke of the "E" key would type multiple "E's". Likee This, undeeerstand? Newegg ...
