Razer Gaming Keyboard Review

Traditional PC and Mac mice come in many different form factors.  Essentially, for a PC, they have two buttons, a scroll wheel for browsing and most likely a laser focus (as opposed to the old ball trackers back in the day!). For a mac, the mouse is slightly different - there is a one click system, but Apple have re-invented the touch sensitivity such that putting you finger in certain places will trigger different functions.

As a Mac user, I think the mouse is fantastic, the trackpad is another matter though, and I certainly would not recommend that for gaming.

There is a bit more choice when it comes to PC gaming, in terms of mice and keyboard options.  But still, gaming keyboards still have the standard qwerty system, but also have a range of other features that make it more suited to gaming.

What is the difference between a normal keyboard and a gaming keyboard?

Well, taking a look at the above review of the Razer Deathstalker Ultimate Gaming Keyboard it is easy to see the wealth of options - such as a dedicated macro key (if you need to press a series of keys at any given time in a game), gaming mode ghosting for unto 10 keys at a time, adjusting settings to disable certain keys (like multiplayer call of duty to disable the Windows key).

Although that doesn't come in the white colour, it still is pretty cool.

What do you think?
