Today at the 2007 International CES in Las Vegas, Microsoft and Razer introduced the Microsoft Reclusa gaming keyboard. Reclusa will help set gamers apart from their competitors with advanced features and best-in-class design elements such as ambient backlighting, Hyperesponse Gaming Key Action for maximum response with minimal latency, and two built-in gold-plated USB ports. Gamers will be able to improve their efficiency with 12 custom-programmable buttons that include two 360 Degree Jog-Dials and two Bumper Buttons conveniently located on each side of the keyboard for faster control and optimized gameplay.

  • Detachable padded wrist rest is ergonomically designed for exceptional comfort.
  • Gold-plated USB portsprovide plug-in access with maximum conductivity for additional peripherals.
  • Microsoft Reclusa will be widely available in spring 2007 for an estimated retail price1 of $69.95.
