In order to charge $250 for a keyboard, it has to be something pretty special. Razer thinks its new Star Wars: The Old Republic themed gaming keyboard qualifies, which is just one of several themed items now up for preorder. The other items include a mouse, headset, and mouse mat, all molded and decked out in an Old Republic theme. So how else do you justify a $250 plank? This particular one comes with a multi-touch LCD track panel built into the right-hand side with interchangeable digital faction symbols. It's a full color display, and above it sit ten dynamic adaptive tactile keys. There are... Read more...
Razer's been focused on peripherals for gamers over the years, and while a good mouse is important, it's not much without a good mouse pad. Razer's able to help out in that regard, as well, and this week they're introducing the Goliathus precision gaming board, and this one's designed for those who prefer soft mats. It's still still and rigid, but doesn't have that rock-hard surface that others have. Razer has improved the design by adding a dense, anti-fraying and long-lasting stitched frame, which is said to add an unprecedented level of targeting and tracking accuracy, while maintaining a perfectly...

It never fails. You think you've spent your last dollar on gaming PC accessories, and then Razer rolls out something else that you just can't resist. The company's newest product is one that you could definitely live without, but the question remains: do you want to? The new Ironclad mouse mat is one of the sleekest, wildest mats we have seen, and it has the price to prove its uniqueness. This is the only metal mat (anodized aluminium) in the company's product line, and it's equipped with a finely sandblasted surface in order to minimize hand discomfort. Because it's metal, it feels smooth to the... Read more...
We don't often get too geeked over movie tie-ins, but we have to hand it to Razer for not only building a product line around the upcoming Tron remake based on the one of the most popular sci-fi flicks of all time, but for doing a killer job with it. Even non-Tron fans are likely to do a double take at these new peripherals, all three of which sport a nifty luminescent blue glow. "We are all extremely excited about our collaboration with Disney on a line of high-end gaming peripherals inspired by the upcoming film TRON: Legacy," said Robert Krakoff, president, Razer USA. "Razer is known for our... Read more...
Gaming mouse pads have been around for years. Companies producing them have arrived and departed, and styles have come and gone, but there's no question that the demand for specialized gaming pads remains. The next company trying to get in on the action is Rude Gameware, which has just introduced one of the wildest, most rugged gaming mouse pads that we have ever seen. Unlike a lot of the slick surfaces that are out there promising increased accuracy for snipers, the Fierce Teflon & Steel Mouse Surface actually uses the famed DuPont Teflon technology in order to make this particular pad resistant...

We recently covered a waterproof keyboard, which is just fine by itself, but the real mess-maker needs a full complement of waterproof accessories. Wouldn't want that coffee spill to not injure your keyboard, but totally ruin your mousepad, right? Sharkoon, an off-the-wall accessory maker, has just introduced their newest mousing pad, and it's two things primarily: cheap, and waterproof.What's interesting is that you could argue that any hard-surfaced mousepad was "waterproof," as you can simply wipe away the beads of water and continue on. Well, as long as no liquid got up under your trackball... Read more...
For the longest time, gamers have been asked to buy a second mouse pad for use when hanging out at LAN parties. Typically, you'd have one "doesn't matter" mouse pad for use at home, then a more expensive mouse for gaming that reacts more accurately to subtle movements.Razer, who has been known to create gaming-centric pads in the past, has just revealed its solution to the two pad problem. The Vespula is the company's first true two-sided mouse pad, with one providing a "speed" surface and one a "control" surface. This is actually designed to be used by gamers who dabble in varying genres; one... Read more...
Are you a hardcore gamer? Of course you are--otherwise, you wouldn't be reading this right now. But when we ask if you're a "hardcore gamer," we aren't just kidding around. If you don't consider yourself amongst the most dedicated out there, you probably won't find much to like in SteelSeries' latest device. The new NP+ Mousepad is unlike anything we've ever seen or heard about, and while we have certainly played with a few nice mousing surfaces in our LAN party days, we can't say we ever came across one like this. It's designed to be both water and stain resistant, which means that you can safely... Read more...
