Razer Tartarus Chroma Gaming Keypad Review
As PC gaming is undergoing a resurgence thanks to the double benefits of the Warcraft/LoL/DOTA2 popularity allowing gaming to break into the mainstream and away from the "loner in their basement" stereotype, alongside the explosion of indie tites, so games are becoming more complicated again. The need to only have enough keys to support a console isn't as important as it has been. Although simplicity is still king, there are more and more titles requiring you to have a wealth of customisable key configurations available at your fingertips, and the Razer Tartarus Chroma seeks to fill that gap.
With 17 programmable keys and an 8-way hat switch sitting alongside an "any colour you like" Chroma system, the Tartarus fits into a niche in the market. Rather than bore you with endless preamble let's get on and see what the Tartarus has to offer.
