Summary: I bought this for my wife about a year ago. IMO this keyboard should basically only be purchased for a gamer who either plays Starcraft or LAN's alot. This keyboard is shorter than average due to no page editor keys or arrow keys.
Summary: Not even good for typing:[ Opinion... maybe some games, but not SC2...sorry.
Pros: The Marauder has some cool features: multiple colors that transition in game when playing SC2, and smooth keys feel nice.
Cons: Longer buttons must be pressed in the middle to bottom out, this causes a delay in response due to required attention in game or even typing. Though it is branded a SC2 keyboard, and some good players use it, milliseconds add up, and I think it really isn't for RTS gaming.
Summary: Using Razor Marauders with my iMac. There are trade offs if you use the standard Apple Keyboard. Fn key is needed for basic volume and itunes control. Shared number pad and arrow key took me a while to get over.
Summary: When the keyboard was bought, New Egg had "Bundle deal w/ Starcraft II game, ends 12/31 " which I took to assume that the keyboard comes with a copy of StarCraft 2, and yet it didn't so buyer beware. Not sure who I take this up with either how can I even prove that I didn't get my copy.
Pros: The keyboard came fine and all.
Cons: I didn't realize the arrow keys and such were mixed into the keypad.
Summary: I find that the left side of the keyboard is great for an RTS gamer, however be very aware that the keyboard as a whole is very small. Like an above review posted alot of your keys are pushed together which is very strange and very uncomftorable.
Summary: Not a great keyboard for playing in a bright room, But good if you only use it at night or in a dark room. Mine just arrived and on testing it out I could see the led's are faulty on this one so it will have to go back even though you can turn the side lights and underglow off no point keeping it...
Summary: If you have windows 8 do not buy this keyboard, at present there is no driver available and the release for it has been pushed back. When I asked razer regarding this on their facebook page their response was to delete my posts and block me from making comments on their page, fantastic customer...
