Microsoft has released yet another gaming product. It's a keyboard designed in cooperation with Razer. It seems to have all the goodies, which a modern gaming keyboard should offer.
This is not the first time that Microsoft and Razer have been working together. You might remember our Habu Gaming Mouse review a while back. In that review we concluded that the 'marriage' of these companies worked nicely and that it produced a nicely balanced gaming product. Hopefully we can uncover if this keyboard is the one for you to spend your money on.
Package and content
Keyboard is sold in ordinary (read: good) package. It's informative and easy to open. Seems that Microsoft keyboards come in red boxes like the previously reviewed Laser Desktop 6000. Inside the package one finds a driver CD, manual booklet, wrist support and the keyboard itself. No batteries this time.
Wrist support is covered with high quality leather. I think it's fake leather, but it feels as nice as it did with the Laser Desktop. Overall the keyboard looks a bit cheap. Reflective black plastic looks okay for couple of days, but eventually it becomes a fingerprint and a dust museum. This keyboard is designed for gamers, not for aesthetics! When speaking of ergonomics, Reclusa can be set to two different slopes. Wristsupport can also be removed.
