Facepalm: Do you own a Razer Deathstalker V2 Pro mechanical keyboard or the tenkeyless model? If so, take a close look at the box for a typo that could net you a $10 discount code for the company's store. Razer has apologized for the mistake, something that many people either don't care about or didn't even notice in the first place.

The box containing the Razer Deathstalker V2 Pro is the usual fare you'd find on an expensive high-end keyboard, covered in phrases about its laser-etched keycaps and ultra-long 40-hour battery life. There's also mention of the "high-peformance wireless." Yes, it does say "peformance" instead of "performance."

Razer has apologized for the error on Twitter, writing that the packaging does not meet its own meticulous design standards. Most companies would scrap the packaging that's already been created and start again, but Razer says such an action would not be "in line with our sustainability commitment."

For anyone who might not be happy about the typo on their $249 Razer Deathstalker V2 Pro box, Razer says owners can reach out to its support department to receive a $10 discount code for the Razer Store. That's not quite the same as handing over $10, of course, but it's better than just an apology.

Our review roundup of the Razer Deathstalker V2 Pro highlights the speedy low-profile optical switches, wear-resistant ABS keycaps, and excellent RGB lighting as highlights, while the limited switch variety, mushy typing experience, and that very high price are some of the less-welcome elements. It gets an average score of 79: some reviewers love the keyboard while others are less impressed. No mention of the typo anywhere, though, which goes to show just how many people pay attention to the packaging when they buy a gaming peripheral.

Razer in 2021 announced a 10-year commitment toward a sustainable future, complete with targets for carbon expenditure, recycling, and renewable energy usage. It aims to reach 100% carbon neutrality by 2030 and 100% renewable energy usage across its global operations by 2025.

They should just make it their gimmick, "We have PE-Formance!" Could add another E but then it would targeted at urination

There is just no quality control anymore, this is very evident in games produced by even big companies, they preffer games pushed very speedy for sale without proper quality control. It used to be better back in the days, but damn, its gotten very bad, the majority of devs are like that.

The best nd most effective way, is just dont pre order or buy games day one, wait till it gets discounted heavily, this will make them reconsider.

Actually given the way humans - automatically understand - ie we know it's performance so we see performance.
Plus its all capitalized - which I think makes it much harder to pick up

Given that - surely it's picked up in software

I didn't see the typo at first

Dumb

Why not poke fun at yourself instead. Turn it into PR (which they have done). No need for $10 coupon
