Top PC gaming peripheral manufacturer Razer has produced quite a showing at this year's CES event, unveiling 2 new products.

First off, Razer has decided to expand on it's audio lineup with the release of a new 2.1 desktop speaker setup: the Razer Mako. This set will be the first desktop speakers to feature the new THX Ground Plane™ and THX Slot Speaker™ technologies. Razer reports that this system boasts a whopping 300W total system power. Each satellite pumps out a solid 50W over 2 channels, totalling 100W per satellite. This speaker system also sports an All-in-one control hub with built-in headphone jack.

Razer has opted for a rather interesting design for this set, with all of the pieces looking more like upside-down bowls rather than speaker satellites and a subwoofer.

Razer has also announced the release of it's second Microsoft collaboration, the Reclusa keyboard. Unlike Razer's own Tarantula, the Reclusa features ambient backlighting, allowing use in dark environments. The Reclusa also has a myriad of programmable buttons, including 6 hotkeys, 2 360° jog dials and 4 bumper buttons on the side of the keyboard.

In addition to these new items, Razer is also promoting their newest addition to their gaming mouse line, the Death Adder.

Yeah but a 32" TV doesn't give you the uberness of 2560x1600. It's almost more desktop real estate than you know what to do with, I was able to surf four webpages with a set of tiled FF browsers, so gangsta! And gaming on that set is surreal when running games at the native res (which admittedly takes an assload of rendering power, when I had mine I was running dual 7800GTX's which slaughtered pretty hard @ native res without any AA/AF. The second I bumped up the AA my rig just got cained hard. Dual 8800GTX's would be well suited for this monitor mefinks ).

Considering i game at 1920x1200 right now, its not that impressive to me. I could care less between that and 1280x1024. Besides, 2 TVs allow me to do more. Like run HDTV and have 2 DVI input TVs on my machine for less than the cost of 2 Dell LCDs.

The built in memory card reader and extra USB ports are also a nice useful feature.

Which takes up 2 USB ports on your machine.

Ehhh no, only one. Had one, and it was a single USB connection :)

Oh, i figured since it was USB, and a card reader that it would take up 2 instead of the usual 1 cable of a single USB hub. My bad. I guess they are both tied to the single printer USB port in the back? Wouldnt that lag a single USB 2.0 port if to many devices are on it?

Yeah I imagine so but you would have to be plugging in external hard drives or something crazy to saturate that bandwidth. I think they were more geared towards input devices and the likes.

Plugging in to many USB2.0 devices of any kind puts alot of latency on it to cause lag. I suppose plugging in 2 flash cards and some flash drives would cause it to lag some.

afaik most if not all input devices (mice keyboard joysticks etc) are USB 1.1 (2.0 compliant but they don't run at 2.0 speed).

There is still latency by having to many devices, 2.0 or not.

Is a newer model coming out? Dell UK have "call for price"

I think Dell are either re-sourcing monitors, revamping a whole range or something similar. Cos we`ve noticed this over probably the last month or so, and I really don`t think it`s anything to do with sale periods. I honestly believe they`re emptying warehouses of older stock.

Cheaper price for still a new Dell LCD? Sweet.
