Ever since I laid my hands on a mechanical keyboard several years ago, I was hooked. Today, almost every keyboard I own is mechanical with the exception of the keyboard on my laptop and a Bluetooth keyboard I use from time to time with my HTPC or tablet. Wouldn’t it be great if everything could be mechanical? I sure think so and Razer seems to think so as well.
Several weeks ago, Razer introduced their new Ultra Low-Profile Mechanical Switches which attempts to solve one of the biggest hurdles to mechanical switches being implemented in portable applications – size. Up until this point, mechanical [...]
Several years ago, Razer developed and adopted their own mechanical keyboard switches for their mechanical keyboard lineup. While Razer switches gave Razer far more control over their product and likely helped reduce costs in the process, Razer’s switches still largely imitated the designs of Cherry MX switches and aside from the switches being called Razer switches, it didn’t offer much benefit for the consumer.
Capitalizing on their switch development experience however, Razer recently introduced their new ultra-low profile switch which is designed to carry the same click and tactile feel of a Razer Green switch, but comes in significantly smaller [...]
Razer recently announced pre-order availability of their new Razer Abyssus V2 gaming mouse which is an update to the popular Abyssus gaming mouse.

For E3 2016, Razer took the wraps off their shiny new Naga Hex V2 MOBA gaming mouse which has a redesigned button layout, new aesthetics, and an updated sensor.
The biggest change to the Razer Naga Hex V2 is that it now has seven side buttons arranged in a ring rather than six from the original Naga Hex. At the center of the keys is a raised island with extra coarse thumb grip on top.
The shell also received an upgrade to the new matte black finish that graces most of Razer’s new peripherals lineup.
Each of the buttons is programmable by the user through the Razer Synapse software. For those who just want to jump into the game, three sets of [...]
Razer never lags behind in gaming aesthetics. With the recent launch of Blizzard’s Overwatch, Razer has applied the game’s signature black and yellow color scheme some of its most popular peripherals.
Razer and Overwatch fans would be glad to know that the Overwatch theme has been applied to the Blackwidow Chroma gaming keyboard, the DeathAdder gaming mouse, and the Goliath Extended gaming mousepad. Not only did the products receive a new paint job, Razer also paired them with a customized lighting effect through the Razer Chroma lighting engine.
Razer has also designed a new headset entirely around the new theme called the Razer ManO’War [...]
Razer recently announced that they’ve revamped the Hammerhead In-Ear Gaming Headset, now offering “…more power, sound quality, durability and portability than ever before.” Aptly dubbed the Hammerhead V2 and the Hammerhead Pro V2, the new in-ear headphones now feature new flat cables rather than the older round cables and they also now pack 10mm drivers rather than the previous generation’s 8mm.
Aside from the changes, the Hammerhead V2 and the Pro V2 still sport a beautiful CNC milled aluminum finish and the Pro V2 model still sport an in line microphone fully compatible with iOS and Android devices. Of course, a 3.5mm audio/micorphone [...]

Following the success of the Razer-branded NZXT H440 released one year ago, Razer has once again teamed-up with NZXT to create another Razer-branded PC case: the NZXT S340 Designed by Razer Edition mid-tower.
The NZXT S340 Designed by Razer Edition is Razer’s second case that carries the “Designed by Razer” moniker. The aim of the Designed by Razer program is to apply the Razer gaming theme to as many PC components as possible for a consistent appearance across the setup. As such, the custom S340 is decked with some Razer-exclusive designs including Razer’s signature matte black finish with green accents, the triple-headed snake logo on the [...]
One day, a Razer engineer took his hand off his mouse and reached for his Chroma’ed out coffee mug. As he slowly sipped his delicious brew that may or may not contain alcohol, the dazzling lights of his mug converged with the blank blueprint on his desk in perfect harmony. The engineer’s eyes glowed (with excitement), and he hastily drew the design for a Chroma’ed out mousepad – the Razer Firefly.
Of course that’s probably not how it actually happened, but I’m sure the engineers at Razer were like so we have so many glowing peripherals nowadays, why not complete the lineup with a glowing mouse [...]
E3 has always been a big show for gaming peripherals maker Razer and for 2015 Razer’s big product announcement is a new Mamba with some innovative technologies that Razer believes will make it the best gaming mouse in the world.
Although similar in shape to the outgoing Razer Mamba, the new Mamba has some drastic changes that will distinguish itself from its predecessor.
The most noticeable change right off the bat is the Chroma style RGB LEDs that wrap the sides of the mouse and the center scroll wheel. Razer has also carried over the materials used on new Razer mice including textured, matte black plastic and grippy rubber sides.
