The Anansi is Razer’s latest keyboard targeted specifically towards MMO players. A full keyboard layout with fully customizable LED backlights, the Anansi also comes with 5 additional macro keys on the left side. While the Anansi comes with on-the-fly macro recording, much like the Black Widow Ultimate keyboard, what makes it unique are the seven modifier keys located under the spacebar.
So let’s get started with the Anasi’s looks. At first glance the Anansi looks really plain; curved edges and a completely matt black finish don’t make this a stand-out keyboard. Then you start looking at some other things, like the thumb modifier T7 keys under the space bar, the 5 macro keys and (the first time it’s plugged in) the mesmerizing backlights that keep on changing hues.
The Razer Anansi is designed to go hand in hand (ignore the pun) with the Naga mice. You’ll notice that on either edge of the keyboard there are shiny, slightly bulging curves that are similar to the one found on the Razer Naga mice. Unlike the Naga mice however, which has that extra sculpture to rest your fingers on, the sides of the Anansi are just for aesthetic appeal.
