This black beauty has all the potential to be a gamer’s best friend, but is the Razer Tarantula Gaming Keyboard poisonous enough to make its competitors shudder at the thought?
In the late 90’s Razer introduced their first piece of gaming hardware, the “Boomslang” a 2000 DPI Gaming Mouse. Since then, Razer has produced many other high end gaming peripherals. These include the “Copperhead” Mouse which uses it’s own firmware and has a 32kb onboard memory. Recently, Razer has also started producing gaming sound ware with the recent release of their “Barracuda” Gaming Headphones" and the “Barracuda” AC1 Gaming Sound Card”.
Plain and simple, Razer corners the market when choosing their packaging. I have not encountered one of their products yet that didn’t scream "pick me up."
The Tarantula comes packaged in a black and gray box with a bold picture of its contents right up front.
The box comes with Velcro tabs to keep it closed and also doubles as a quick way to open the box and see its contents.
