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.
