even at 50% off it seems kind of pricey


I've not really heard anything great about it on other PC gaming boards. The mouse appears to be pretty low quality.

It was on clearance at Best Buy before for $80 and I was still urged not to purchase.

I see the Turret is there, I returned it was still in "coming soon" last year. Anybody heard anything about it? That plus Steam Link would be nice for couch Heroes.

 

 

I bought one for my Steam Link last year and overall it works fine for non competitive gaming. It does feel a bit uncomfortable after a few hours due to the angle of the whole setup. 
 
The mouse is small, feels kind of cheap (based of their Orochi), and takes some practice to use it on the small pad area. Although the mouse will still register if the mouse overhangs the pad a bit.  It does have light magnets on the mouse to keep it from sliding into your lap. It's not strong since if you tilt the keyboard too far it will still slide off.
 
The Keyboard itself if actually not bad. It is very click-y and feels like a premium laptop keyboard. It has some decent weight and the rubber backside keeps from sliding all over the place. The only thing I wish it had was some sort of textured WASD keys because I sometimes lose my hand placement. 
 
It's a good setup for games like City Skylines, The Talos Principle, and any Point and Click adventure games. It's just OK for single player FPS but forget about doing any MP. At 50 percent off I'd say its worth it for couch potato gaming.

Recommendation for everyone, it also works on the refurb products. Save and then save on top.

I got 2 used Firefly mousepads for around $50 because of last years sale.

Ugh, Razer Ornata Chroma went from "notify me" to "out of stock." Probably not gonna get restocked before the sale.

I'm still going back and forth whether I should buy anything. I'm eyeballing that new PS4 Fightstick. It looks sexy. $100 is the cheapest anyone can ever get a modern fightstick nowadays. Typically you're paying double as they don't go on sale often.

I'm bias since I play tons of fighting games.

I say get one if Razer is selling one, I paid $200 for my Madcatz's Ps4 T.E.2 while it is good $200 is still a lot for a stick.

Yeah I'm just a little nervous because the stick is so new, and there were issues with the Atrox that I would have to hope their adjustments have fixed. Plus you can't swap out the panel artwork, which seems a bit wonky for such an expensive stick.

Well if you're paying $100 less just consider it a feature missing to swap artwork.

I personally wouldn't skip a stick that cheap if I had the money on me now.

 

Makes a great backup stick or primary either way.

If I do decide to get it, I'll probably just mod the stick so I can remove artwork. It's going to take some careful heating, prying and drilling, but I hear it's not impossible to get the plexi off. I'm pretty sure they changed that purposely so people couldn't remove the Razer logos and they lose the free promotion when these sticks are at tournaments.

If anyone is considering getting a Razer Turret, be sure to look at this. They didn't put this in the main product page which is silly.

Yeah it has some weird compatibility issues. 

 

Also if anyone signs up for Razers newsletter, they send you a code that allows you to get $10 off a purchase of $100 or more. I don't know if it will stack with this 50% off code.

Need some suggestions on which mouse between Mamba TE and Deathaddler Elite.  I currently have a naga from a few years ago but have largely stopped playing mmos so i want a good general gaming mouse.  I was leaning toward the Mamba because chroma is pretty but I just saw that the Deathaddler Elite has chroma too soo not sure anymore.  Anybody have any experience between the two?  I think my naga is a laser mouse and i saw that the mamba is laser and deathaddler elite is optical.  Honestly im not sure what the difference is.

First person to guess my favorite final fantasy game (1 thru 15) can have my code. I'm 40 years old so take that into consideration.

I have one and love it. Very convenient for my college dorm room setup. My roommate is planning on getting one tonight too.
