One of the most comprehensive gaming keyboards around, but it’s incredibly expensive...

You wait all year for a super-expensive gaming keyboard with touchscreen controls and then two turn up at once. Following hot on the crazy-priced heels of the Mad Catz STRIKE 7 comes this ultra stylish, ultra techie riposte from peripherals guru...

So let's get the elephant in the room dealt with. No, if you're solely after a keyboard for typing and don't plan at all on gaming to the degree you need a spare screen with some cool features, this is too expensive for your needs. But, and this is a...

Ultimately, though, it is bit of an unnecessary gadget. It’s great on the Blade, where it’s more tightly integrated with the overall machine, but on a keyboard it seems a bit cludgy, not to mention excessive in terms of cost.

Early adopters and LAN partiers in need of a little extra braggadocio may embrace the Deathstalker Ultimate purely on the promise of being able to check Twitter on their keyboard between bouts of Counter-Strike, and MMORPG players will appreciate the extra screen space and programmable hotkeys afforded by the Switchblade UI...

PC enthusiasts expect to pay extra for premium peripherals, and Razer's new Deathstalker Ultimate ($250) pushes that expectation to the breaking point by including a flashy new touchscreen interface that's unlike anything we've ever seen in a gaming...

Building a beautiful LCD touchscreen and ten programmable LED keys into a gaming keyboard is a neat idea, but in practice the Switchblade interface feels more like a gimmick than a useful feature. Opening apps like Twitter or Facebook on your keyboard instead of your browser is pointless...

I’d recommend looking at the DeathStalker, which is functionally very similar (just without the Switchblade). We’re keeping our eye on the progress of the Switchblade UI and we’ll keep you posted as more developers sign on with unique applications for the embedded screen.

The gimmicky features and average performance of this unique gaming keyboard don't justify the premium price.

The Deathstalker Ultimate is unlike any keyboard we’ve seen thus far. The full capacitive keyboard will turn many heads. Plus general keyboard performance is excellent. I can easily recommend this one as I know Razer is committed to enhancing the longevity of that touch screen with more gamer-targeted applications.

The Razer DeathStalker Ultimate is the only gaming keyboard to consider, if you want to use Razer's Switchblade UI without shelling out the price of a premium gaming laptop. For everyone else, however, there are better (and cheaper) options out...

Is the Razer Deathstalker Ultimate the ultimate PC gaming keyboard? Maybe for you. For me, the best gaming keyboard is one with dependable WASD keys and a space bar that isn't bouncy or noisy. I love the Switchblade trackpad and assignable buttons, but they're a luxury that I can't see myself using often enough for the outlay.

I suspect my absolute dream keyboard would be a Razer Black Widow Ultimate (with its awesome mechanical keys) paired with an adjustable tilt-screen Switchblade UI, conveniently located on the left-hand side of the keyboard in the area around the ESC-F1-F2 keys (although the price of such a beast would probably send shivers down one’s spine).

Подводя итоги, хотелось бы отметить уникальность устройства - наличие сенсорного экрана, 10 тактильных клавиш с визуальным отображением иконок, многоцветовая подсветка, удобная запись макро команд и использование с помощью встроенного блока макро клавиш,...

看膩了電競鍵盤不是軸承不同,就是巨集鍵多寡的設計嗎?Razer DeathStalker Ultimate 絕對顛覆你對鍵盤的想像。Razer 在去年八月時就已經發表 Razer DeathStalker Ultimate ,是一款結合螢幕觸控板電競鍵盤,具備 Switchblade UI 介面,有玩過 Razer Blade 遊戲筆電的朋友應該對這介面不陌生。Switchblade UI 介面可與遊戲、音樂、社群網站、收發郵件做完美的搭配,並以 ICON...

Razer DeathStalker Ultimate tastaturet er lidt anerledes end de fleste andre gaming tastaturer, primært grundet at den nede i højre hjørne har et såkaldt SwitchBlade UI der er en touch screen med 10 display skiftende knapper. SwitchBlade’et har...

Mit der Deathstalker Ultimate schickt der kalifornische Hersteller Razer eine absolut innovative Idee ins Rennen gegen die Konkurrenz: Eine Tastatur mit einem Touchscreen. Dies ist in den Zeiten von Smartphones und Tablets eine wirklich raffinierte...

Las referencias que tenía de los periféricos Razer siempre habían sido muy positivas. Una marca americana que ofrecía productos de una calidad exquisita a un precio abultado pero perfecto para el que quiera darse un buen capricho. Y he aquí el Razer...
