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, [...]
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 [...]

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.
