Pros: I bought this for two reasons. First, I already own and love a Razer Naga Epic mouse. Second, it was on sale. You can buy less expensive keyboards, but this one has some good extras like backlit keyboard so you can see it in low light, programmable keys for macros, braided cord and lots of functions right on the keyboard which others don't. Razer makes a solid product and usually offers way more options and extras than I would ever use and this keyboard is no exception.
Cons: Only two items of note are that it uses 2 usb slots. One for the keyboard and another for the lighting, but I had a bunch anyway so it doesn't bother me, but that did catch me off guard. Second, I sometimes hit a key I don't mean to just because there are so many on it, but they aren't an abnormal distance or anything. I imagine once I get used to it I won't do that as much and its no different than trying an ergonomic keyboard after using a normal one for years, but ...

Pros: The good things about this keyboard is the thumb buttons, normally when you play mmo's like wow for an example, you use the thumb to jump, with this keyboard you use your thumb to do other epic stuff then jumping around.
Cons: The bad thing is, i dont use these buttons to often so they arent to much of a deal for me, but ofc i use them sometime :D

Summary: I really love my Razer Anansi MMO Gaming Keyboard - MAC Edition (RZ03-00551200-R3M1) . I've been using it since November 2011. I have no issues with the changing colors. Both lower and upper case letters are illuminated, unlike the Razer BlackWidow Mechanical Gaming Keyboard-MAC (RZ03-00391300-R3M1) which only illuminate the lower case letters. The macros are easy to configure. There are two usb cables, not really an issue with an 8 port usb hub.
Pros: Excellent companion to the Razer Naga mouse. Allows eight spellbars to be accessed very quickly through specialized, easily accessable, stepped row keys.
Cons: BEWARE of rushing to "UPDATE" the FIRMWARE. I updated the firmware as soon as I got the FIRST keyboard and THE KEYBOARD WAS NOT RECOGNIZED by Windows 7 Ultimate x64 EVER AGAIN. Swapped keyboard for a different one, DID NOT update the firmware and it is still working like a champ.
