It's actually 0.3mm difference. What's the point? They didn't even lower the actuation force, my biggest gripe with the switches they use.

Because it's Razer.


I like their headsets, keyboards, tablet and modular PC design.
(not their mice).
But apparently that opinion is wrong =_=


Their headsets are terrible as well as their keyboards, I can't speak for the tablet, but their mice(and only one of them) is the only redeeming thing Razer has left.


Hey, I picked up an Edge Pro, and it is legit quality with some great (overpriced and limited quantity) accessories. The keyboard dock is Razer's attempt at s***ting on fans of the thing, though.

I've never owned anything else by Razer, so I can't speak about the rest.

Razer makes garbage peripherals. It's laughable that they talk about build quality.

Next game on list: Uncharted 2

Razer is still trying to pull its whole accessory thing with some of its devices? I think that's the biggest joke of all. They pulled that with the Tarantula keyboard's "battle dock." It was just a glorified mini-USB port with a special mount. They claimed it was gonna have all sorts of add-on gadgets you could plug in there and it was going to be so useful. I *think* they might have actually released a light and a webcam for it before they dumped it. Razer doesn't have a spectacular history of supporting its products with accessories, so if you buy something based on the promise of accessories, well... just don't.

Yeah, I'm just glad I only bought the Edge Pro + Docking Station (which still was $99 for essentially a hub for HDMI, 3 USB ports, Headphone jack, and a charging stand).

The $200 keyboard dock didn't even have backlighting, and some of the worst keys I've ever felt...which makes no sense since Razer is a damn peripheral company that makes keyboards. You'd think they could do better than a $100 iPad keyboard dock like Zagg makes or such.

The controller is cool, but not for $250. And they charge $70 for an extra battery to put into it. Pathetic!

The actually tablet has been awesome though. Considering I can play everything on it's native resolution, including FC3, Crysis 3, and other high end games with medium-high settings, it's pretty impressive.
