For a long time now, Razer has been making some of the best peripherals for PC gaming on the planet. What Razer has lacked until now has been a quality gaming keyboard to add to their line of gaming mice and headphones. With the Tarantula Razer has addressed this hole in their lineup. If you are wondering how well the Razer Tarantula performs read on.
One glance at the all black Tarantula and you can see the Razer family resemblance. From the pulsating Razer logo to the blue backlight for some of the keys the Tarantula is a good-looking keyboard. Razer sends an extra set of gaming key tops with the Tarantula to replace the generic black keys on the left and right side of the keyboard. The extra keys are gamer specific blue ones that are backlit and feature icons for things like weapon change, chat and more.
You can also bind complex macros to the ten extra keys along each side of the keyboard for use with both games and office applications. You can record macros using specific time delays between key presses and use multiple keystrokes at once in a macro, as you would need to activate the Ctrl-Alt-del function on a Windows PC.
The cool part about the Razer Synapse drivers the Tarantula uses is that you can remap every standard key to a different function as well. If you want your “R” key to be the “P” key you can do it. Setting up profiles for the keyboard is a snap and you can have up to 100 different profiles for games and applications. Once you have a profile associated with an application that profile will launch automatically when the game or app is launched on your computer. You can also use the included tool to rearrange all of the standard keys, say you prefer to use DVORAK rather than good old QWERTY you can do it with the Razer Tarantula. Typing feel on the Tarantula is very good as well.
Razer used membrane keys to reduce latency and give better response during gaming. However, the keyboard is very good for normal everyday typing as well thanks to the membrane keys. Typing feel is very good and provides tactile feedback, without the keys being overly clicky which can be annoying.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
