Razer Tarantula

The Tarantula keyboard from the American company, Razer, is marketed as a hardcore gamer’s keyboard. The Razer Tarantula features blue backlit macro keys, anti-ghosting for a maximum of 10 keys, Hyperesponse, 32 kilobytes of memory for storing profiles, on-the-fly profile switching, 10 programmable hot keys, media center keys, headphone and microphone ports, 2 unpowered USB ports and Razer’s Battledock for plugging in accessories.

The Razer Tarantula only has backlights for the 5 macro keys on each side. But with the Battledock, a BattleLight accessory (available separately) can be plugged in to provide illumination for the keyboard. The Battledock can also be used with Razer’s BattleEye webcam accessory.

The Hyperesponse feature allows for quick response times while the anti-ghosting feature keeps the keyboard from freezing when up to 10 keys are pressed simultaneously.

The 32 kilobytes of onboard memory featuring Razer Synapse technology allows for storing custom profiles for each game. Using the keyboard’s driver, users can define up to 100 different profiles and store 5 of them on the keyboard itself.

The Razer Tarantula’s programmable keys include 5 gaming hot keys on each side as well as customizable media keys. The gaming hot keys can be programmed for a maximum of eight key presses and users can also define delays in the keystrokes. The media keys can be programmed to control the user’s media player of choice.

The keyboard ships with 10 custom blue key caps which have images printed on them. The images (a pistol, a grenade, a helmet, ammo etc.) are mostly for FPS games.
