I used to hate it.

Gary S., Newegg
20 January 2015
  • Summary: 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.
  • 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 an...
  • 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.

An adequate amount of great

ProjectJLN, Amazon

  • Summary: I got a refurbished unit, and I haven't had that many issues with it. The ones I have had are due to Razer's Synapse software and not the keyboard itself, honestly; I wish they would go back to the Configurator and local profile storage and leave this cloud nonsense alone.

My baby!

Chesna, Amazon
1 February 2014
  • Summary: The only reason I give this 4 rather than 5 is because the Razer Synapse software isn't all that intuitive and has to be open for me to fully make use of my keybindings. BUT I love typing on this thing, love love love it. I loathe mechanical keyboards, they feel gross to me rather than satisfying.

Great keyboard by Razer, but wouldn't buy again

Charles Spanky "Spanky Tech Reviews", Amazon
21 January 2014
  • Summary: I bought this keyboard because I was tired of hearing cherry switches, and my old BlackWidow had several non-functional keys. The build quality on the Anansi is great. The keys are all back lit with any chosen color in the Razer Synapse 2.0 configurator, which makes this keyboard unique from any...

Good keyboard, but not great.

kmiller2244, Ebay

  • Summary: Nice keyboard, changes backlight colors, and has comfortable feel. It does seem a little cheap on construction, but we’ll see. It does have many programmable macro keys that make it better than others. Good not great and maybe fair to good considering price.

Not Great Not Bad

InDaStank, Amazon
28 December 2013
  • Summary: I loved the idea of the macro keys at my thumbs so I tried to use it to replace my G19 from Logitech. Everything was going well until the E key wouldn't work like it was suppose to. So now it sits here and does nothing. I sent a inquire to RAZR and they asked me to try it on another computer.

Great mid-level gaming keyboard

Bryan K., Newegg
14 December 2013
  • Pros: I am very pleased with how well this keyboard has behaved so far. Before making this purchase I browsed all the reviews for the top 10 gaming keyboards and it seemed so hit and miss. It was either the person was incredibly pleased and had no issues vs. the unit broke down in a few months time or ...
  • Cons: Although not enough to take a full egg off, I do wonder why two USB cables are required. You are definitely going to want to make sure you have two free slots to use this model. I don't know enough about power consumption and the power available via USB to make an informed opinion, but I do know ...

Happy with it so far.

Travis M., Newegg
11 December 2013
  • Summary: It's a great keyboard for just typing and gaming. The MMO label make sense, given that it has the macro keys and the thumb buttons. The thumb buttons do take some getting-used to, but it's by no means a con, as they are useful. I'll update in time, and with use.
  • Pros: Backlit Macro keys Has gaming mode to turn off Alt-Tab, Windows key, and Alt-F4 Easy to type on
  • Cons: Backlight isn't powerful enough

Totally programmable, switch layouts with a thumb key. Dvorak, Colemak, you name it.

Elena Schott, Amazon
6 December 2013
  • Summary: I wanted a gaming keyboard that was trim, had good response, and total programming flexibility. The Anansi does this well. It feels good under the hand, springy instead of mushy, for all that it's not mechanical keyswitches.

Great keyboard for my Molten Naga.

Ronald Allen, Amazon
22 November 2013
  • Summary: Just received this keyboard. The whole process of opening and downloading the keyboards drivers and synapses did not take to long. The over all feel of the keys is something I will need to get use to. Coming from a ordinary keyboard to this is a big step. The feel is great.
