Microsoft already teamed up with Razer on the Habu, that gaming mouse they introduced back in August, now their partnership is back in effect with the Reclusa, a new gaming keyboard (a note to Microsoft and Razer: we know you were probably thinking of the Reclusa spider when you named this, but you should probably avoid names that evoke the well-worn stereotype of gamers as reclusive, isolated loners). Anyway, features they’re touting include ambient blue LED backlighting, “Hyperesponse Gaming Key Action” for “minimal latency”, 12 programmable buttons (including two jog-dials and four bumper buttons), and not one, but two gold-plated USB ports. Should hit this spring with a retail price of $69.99.
- Blue LED backlit keys allow gaming in low-light or no-light conditions.
- Razer Hyperesponse Gaming Key Action reduces key latency for maximized response.
- Two 360 Degree Jog-Dials, one on each side of the keyboard, can be quickly accessed during gameplay.
- Four Bumper Buttons enable easy access to common keyboard commands.
- Six programmable gaming Hot Keys allow players to create and store different macros and keystrokes for each game profile so they can combine several moves with the touch of one key.
- On-the-fly profile management enables users to create and store key mapping and macros for each game profile; keyboard software also automatically assigns different game profiles for supported games.
- Detachable padded wrist restis ergonomically designed for exceptional comfort.
- Gold-plated USB portsprovide plug-in access with maximum conductivity for additional peripherals
