Razer begin “costly venture” to make a left-handed Naga mouse

Trying to find good gaming mouse if you're left-handed is still a trying experience in this day and age. Sure, there are growing numbers of ambidextrous mice out there, such as our [block id="604479" title="Best gaming mouse"] champ the Asus ROG Pugio and Steelseries Sensei 310, but they pale in comparison to the number of right-handed mice. Well, that small number of leftie-friendly mice is…

Razer resurrect their classic RGB mouse mat (along with some spoooky deals)

Razer have brought their original FireFly RGB mouse mat back from the dead today, making it brighter and thinner than ever before. Indeed, Razer say the FireFly V2 is now the brightest RGB mouse mat in their entire line-up of rainbow-trimmed surfaces, thanks in no small part to its 19 lighting zones. The £50 / $50 hard mat also has a built-in cable catch to…

Best gaming keyboard 2019: Top mechanical and membrane picks

With so many great keyboards to pick from these days, finding the best gaming keyboard for you and your budget can be tricky. First, you've got to figure out whether you'd rather save some money and get a cheap membrane-based one, or maybe splash out a bit and get a mechanical one instead. However, even if you do decide to go down the mechanical keyboard…

Razer Kraken X review: So close, yet so far

The Razer Kraken X is the third £50 / $50 gaming headset I've tried in almost as many weeks, and by jolly is it a hard one to judge. Compared to the similarly priced Steelseries Arctis 1, it has a much clearer, more detailed sound when playing games, but even its ultralight, 250g frame can't beat the supreme weightlessness of its Arctis rival. It is,…

Razer Viper review: An ultra light ambidextrous gaming mouse

There have been quite a few new entries in my best gaming mouse list recently, from Corsair's Ironclaw RGB and Harpoon RGB Wireless to Roccat's Kain 120, but almost all of them have been designed with right-handed PC peeps in mind. Finally, however, we might have a new best gaming mouse contender for the lefties among you in the form of the new Razer Viper.…

Razer’s new budget Essential series are all still kinda expensive

Razer have announced a new budget-conscious series of 'Essential' peripherals today in the hope of bringing their popular Basilisk, Kraken and Blackwidow ranges of gaming mice, keyboards and headsets to even more people enamoured with mythological creature names than ever before - although judging by their actual prices, you'd be forgiven for thinking they're just as expensive as everything else.

CES 2019: Doom feels like a new game with Razer’s HyperSense haptic feedback tech

When I walked into Razer's HyperSense room at their CES booth, I wasn’t really sure what to expect. Before me stood a desk and chair like any ordinary PC set up (albeit one solely comprised of Razer products) and two grinning demo guides. "Do you know Doom?" one of them said. Why, yes, I do, I like it a lot and know it well, I…

CES 2019: Razer’s Raptor monitor has incredible cable management

Razer announced they were finally jumping headfirst into the world of gaming monitors at this year's CES, and man alive does this 27in display get a lot of things right. Dubbed the Razer Raptor, this 2560x1440 IPS screen is still in the early stages of development at the moment, but even now there's plenty to admire here. Indeed, the thing I'm most excited about isn't…

The Razer Turret is the first mouse and keyboard combo for Xbox One, and it also works on PC

Razer have officially lifted the lid on the world's first wireless keyboard and mouse combo designed for the Xbox One, which also happily works on Windows 10 PCs, too. Dubbed the Turret, console box-ers who have always yearned for the pixel-perfect precision of a mouse and keyboard in such popular past times as Fortnite, Warframe and that new and definitely not aeons old DayZ that…

Razer Cynosa Chroma review: A step up for membrane gaming keyboards

Who says the [block id="604483" title="Best gaming keyboard"] has to be a mechanical one? Razer's Cynosa Chroma has been stuck on my desk for a couple of weeks now and hoo boy have I given it a baptism of fire, as this ended up being the keyboard I used to put together my Monster Hunter: World graphics performance article. Yep, I've murdered hundreds of Great…

Razer Mamba + Firefly Hyperflux review: How much?

It's been quite a while since we've had a wireless mouse in for review at Castle Shotgun, and for that I apologise. To rectify the situation, I've got Razer's Mamba + Firefly Hyperflux combo in today, which is absolutely 100% the name of a mouse and mouse mat and definitely not a binned subtitle for Kingdom Hearts 3. The main attraction here is Razer's aforementioned…

Razer Huntsman review: Opto-mechanical goodness

If you like your clacky keyboards, Razer's new Huntsman is going to be right up your street. This thing is LOUD. Much louder, I'd say, than any other keyboard I've tested so far, and I'd probably even go as far as saying it's clickier and clackier than the Cherry MX blue switches found in mechanical keyboards like the Fnatic Streak and HyperX Alloy Elite. This…

Razer Naga Trinity review: Three gaming mice in one

I'll admit to doing a bit of a double-take when I saw how much the Razer Naga Trinity goes for these days. £100 / $90? On your bike, lad. But then I realised the Naga Trinity isn't really just a single mouse. With its trio of interchangeable side plates, this is three mice in one, giving you the option of two, seven or twelve extra…

The new Razer Blade (2018) is primed and ready for on-the-go Final Fantasy XV

Gaming laptops are a funny business, aren't they? Nine times out of ten they're nowhere near as powerful as an equivalent desktop PC, yet they usually cost just as much, if not more, than the bulky black rectangles they're so desperately trying to replace. There's also a matter of looks. Most gaming laptops are very much from the shouty GAMING LAPTOP school of design with…

Razer Blade Stealth + Razer Core review: the external laptop graphics card dream

Consider this a slight tangent from my ongoing quest to decide which gaming laptop to buy by reviewing a bunch of them. The Razer Blade Stealth is not a gaming laptop, despite coming from a company most known for aggressively 'gamer'-orientated technology. It's an ultrabook, which is to say very thin and light, which means no discrete graphics card and a low-power processor. The Macbook…

So I Bought A Mechanical Keyboard

Note - this piece is aimed at people who are as ignorant about mechanical keyboards as I was until around a week ago (and probably still am), not at old hands. For the longest time, my major interest in a keyboard has been whether it's got big, easy multimedia controls. Apart from that, it's a plastic thing with buttons on it, right? Then people (including…

Healing The Rift: Razer Aims To Democratise VR

God only knows where they get the money from, but hardware firm Razer are a reliable source of massively optimistic gaming tech that it's hard to believe will ever quite take off despite how it appealing it sounds on paper. Hands up who owns a Razer Hydra? Or a Razer Edge Pro? Or is planning on a Project Christine? Well, maybe this one will hit…

Razer Announces Easy-To-Upgrade Project Christine

Razer's latest bit of PC mad science might look like an alien ribcage, but it aspires to big things. For those of us who worship at The Impossibly Tall Altar Of Horace, building a PC is a routine task, but those who've yet to realize the stars in the sky are merely his universe-nourishing teats aren't as keen on it. There are cards and motherboards…

What Price Innovation? ($50m, If You’re Razer)

"The PC giants have stopped innovating" claimed Razer boss Min-Liang Tan to Kotaku recently. What he meant, of course, was that Razer's own projects such as tablet PC/wrestling machine Project Fiona offer the experimental design the Dells and HPs of this world should be pursuing. Fiona's unveiling seemed to result in a planet-wide raised eyebrow, but I love that it's happening even if I think…
