As a gamer myself, searching for a good gaming keyboard is a hassle. Especially if you’re into PVP. I’m a hardcore World of Warcraft PVP player (well…not that hardcore, but I always play PVP. But my rating is not that good).
So even the slightest advantage in PVP will make a difference. During a critical moment, sometimes I will accidentally pressed the Windows key and end up with my team losing in 3’s.
As a rogue in PVP, you have to react quickly and you need to predict your enemy movement. A good keyboard is crucial.
The Razer DeathStalker Ultimate Elite Gaming Keyboard (RZ03-00790100-R3U1) is a new keyboard recently released on September 2012 with lots of features.
This keyboard has the same LCD screen with the one on the Razer Blade laptop with the Switchblade UI touch sensitive feature on the right side of the keyboard.
The Switchblade can run more than 16 apps such as Gmail, Facebook, Youtube, screenshot, clock, numpad and many more to enhance your gaming experience. Let’s say you’re grinding to level 90 on World of Warcraft and you need to get some info from Youtube, you can just run the Youtube app while grinding.
It can also display information such as damage per second (dps), heal per second or even threat level during gameplay. As some of you already know, this will be greatly helpful during a raid or PVP.
The Keyboard comes with tri-colour customizable colour scheme backlighting so you can match it with other Razer product. You can press the F11 or F12 during gameplay to decrease or increase the backlighting brightness. So you will no longer miss a key playing in a dark room or poorly lighted room.
It has a nice and fixed rubberized inlay to reduce fatigue while playing. So you don’t have to stop every now and then to ease your hands.
The on-board macro recording interface is also one of the feature offered with this keyboard. Using the Synapse 2.0 control panel, you can assign the recorded macro to one of the 10 dynamic display keys with 80 Hz response time. Which means, you will no longer miss a Blind or a heal during PVP or raid.
Another good feature the Razer DeathStalker Ultimate Elite Gaming Keyboard (RZ03-00790100-R3U1) has is the anti-ghosting capability. With up to 10 simultaneous key presses, it will execute your orders perfectly and you don’t have to worry the keyboard will miss a key.
Even though the keyboard is good, but some even reported a problem with the Switchblade UI. The driver tends to crash and will render the Switchblade useless for a moment until you restart the driver or the PC.
The USB also seems to have a problem. For some reason, the PC cannot detect the keyboard in some cases. There are also reported case of the Switchblade UI flickering after updating it to the latest version. This however, can be solved by changing your USB port.
The keys also closer than normal keyboard and a bit compressed. You might accidentally pressed the wrong keys, but after you get used to it. The keys won’t be a problem.
The rubber wrist rest tends to get dusty after a while and cleaning it will be a problem. So far, this keyboard does not support Windows 8. Those with Windows 8 might have to wait for some time until it will be supported in the next update.
Overall, this keyboard has been released on September 2012 and it is not perfect..yet. The potential is there and it is a nice gaming keyboard. The cons also does not appear often and only happened in some cases. If you’re the Bad Luck Brian, well…that’s another story. Buying it will be a nice addition to your gaming arsenal. Highly recommended
