Razer Deathstalker Ultimate Review


Razer Deathstalker Ultimate Review


We could spend the next ten pages showing you the various elements of the screen and supplied applications, but hopefully a small selection will demonstrate the capabilities and attention to detail. It's worth noting that the screen functions exactly like any modern smartphone, supporting pinch zoom, rotate, as well as gestures (two fingers to scroll for example). These don't only work on the screen itself but on your main desktop when it's in standard mode.

Starting with the browser it is, rather obviously, a browser. The LCD keys above change to icons familiar to anyone who can read this review, and the browser is fully functional. If you're one of the people who've adopted the 140 character fun that is Twitter, you can use the Twitter app to keep track on current events, or your friends telling you that it's snowing. The supplied App is just like it is on your phone of choice.

If you're one of the billion people who can't go a moment without reading that your friend has just checked into work, or maybe you fancy a sneaky bit of Farmville, then the Deathstalker has got you covered. One of the most impressive default apps has to be the Youtube one. All of the icons change to useful Youtube features, and it's easy to scroll through the list.

Yes, before you wonder how useful that is, you can watch your chosen video on the screen. Super-handy if you want a walkthrough of the bit you're stuck on without having to leave the game.

Speaking of handy the Deathstalker comes equipped with some prebuilt timers for respawns. Every little edge you can get helps.

Speaking of prebuilt applications, here is an example of the BattleField 3 set. Choose your class and the whole Switchblade UI changes to match.

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
