A good product that falls short of greatness.

How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Summary

The Razer Anansi is designed specifically for MMO gamers, with a macro and shortcut-friendly design built around a set of seven user-definable thumb modifier keys below the spacebar. If you need a general-purpose keyboard, there are better choices, including the gdgt Must Have Razer Black Widow, which boasts industrial-strength mechanical-switch keys, and sells for about the same price as the Anansi. However, if you're a dedicated MMO gamer looking for a keyboard that will give you an edge, the Anansi may be worth its price.
