Razers Tarantula packs in a lot of action into it's slick frame. Aside from the blue LEDs, there are dual USB ports on the end, alongside a mic/headphone jack. For hardcore gamers, there is anti-ghosting capabilities and also macro keys.

I liked this review. I have a funky A4tech keyboard with it's own on board sound solution (requiring liberal use of the device manager) so I was relieved to see that Razer's jacks are simply pass-through. Sucks that not all the keys are illuminated though. I'll stick with the G15.

Sadly the razer tarntulas pass through headphone jacks are messed up by interferance noise, possibly from the leds? Anyway its a modulating hum combined with a hiss that really make these jacks useless.

Im awaiting a reply from razer support on it.
