Razer Deathstalker Ultimate Review

Introduction and Technical Specifications

Razer Deathstalker Ultimate Review  


A little while ago Razer released a keyboard designed for Star Wars : The Old Republic. It had some serious features but because of the specific design it had a very niche audience. We can't have been the only people hoping that the plentiful array of technologies would find its way into a keyboard with a more vanilla design, and so it has with the Razer Deathstalker Ultimate.

However, vanilla is a term that can definitely only be applied to the colour of the keyboard and choice of font for the keys, because everything else about the Deathstalker blurs the lines between keyboard and smart-phone. We always try here at OC3D to write our introduction in a manner that doesn't give away too much of our thoughts on a particular item of hardware. After all a review is a journey of discovery, but there is so much to discover with the Deathstalker that you definitely don't want to sit down with only a few minutes to read this.

So grab your favourite beverage, put the kids outside and send the cat to bed, as the Razer Deathstalker Ultimate is definitely something to which the 'ultimate' moniker can be applied.

Technical Specifications

No, you haven't read that incorrectly. The Razer Deathstalker comes with a 4" screen that doubles as a trackpad. It's worth stopping here and looking at the top of the review at the price. Now think about how much your iPhone costs because of that big screen. Suddenly the Deathstalker doesn't seem so expensive. But that's only the half of it, so let's take a look shall we.

Track pad with gesture support

It sure does look nice and that little touch screen is a nice bonus but imo that doesn't justify the price of €230,- where most backlit mechanical keyboards cost between €80,- and €150,-

Nonetheless; Good review Quote

I'd say the pricing isn't too bad.

I'm thinking that touch pad area might be handy for game development...Quote
