    I like having my PC peripherals be a matching brand because the design of the peripherals tend to share a similar design. This way my PC setup looks pretty uniform by design. I currently have a Razer BlackWidow Stealth Chroma and Razer Epic Naga on my gaming setup. I am seriously considering getting a Razer Orbweath Stealth Chroma to sit next to my keyboard. My work computer setup has a Logitech G710+ keyboard with a G700 mouse. Do you tend to buy the same branded/model PC peripherals? Do you mind having mismatching design/color schemes of your peripherals?

    Razer, all the way. I swap periphs out between rigs (my keyboards, mostly), so Synapse makes that all seamless. Except for my Thrustmaster Warthog. If Razer builds a HOTAS, I'll upgrade.

    I don't really care if the brands are different, as long as the color scheme isn't horribly off. Like right now I use my Razer BlackWidow Chroma with my Corsair Sabre RGB. So really as long as I can customize the colors of my setup.

  5. No I do not because only one company's products will not suit my gaming needs. One company may have a better keyboard than the other. I also use a different branded mouse with my keyboard. I used to have all Razer products but they kept on becoming worn out and or broken, so I decided to open up a bit to all the brands and see what they will have to offer. My headset, mouse, and keyboard are not the same brand.

    I do try to keep everything looking the same, and now that I've got my first Chroma keyboard on the way... it looks like I'm going need a new mouse (and mouse pad) too!

    That's one of the things I've really liked about my Apple setup, their styling has always been really great making all their gear look great together.

    Yeah like I user to use only Razer products, but I've found them getting worn out too easily. So I've branched out top using several different brands now.

    Looking at my desk, it's kinda weird.
    Almost all of it is green Razer stuff. Except for the second pair of headphones and a DeathAdder with Audio Visualizer always on. Those headphones just look... Out of place. Gray/black. Not green.

    You won't see me giving up my bland-looking DT660 headphones anytime soon. Krakens just aren't suited towards classical music. I value function over looks.

    Anyways, most of the time I'm engrossed within my monitor or accidentally dozing off to music so I can't see my peripherals ;).

    The OCD is to strong to mix and match, have to have the same.

    I experienced the same thing a long time ago with older Razer products. The MS/Razer co-branded Habu mouse is one of my all-time favorites. The mouse served me well for several years until it died. :frown_: Since then I moved onto Logitech products but I am warming up to Razer products all over again.

    Yeah, like I absolutely loved the Razer Naga mouse, it was my favorite mouse I had used. But since that mouse had died after like 1 maybe 1.5 years, I have moved on to trying more Corsair or Logitech

    Everything is Razer for me! :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

    I've been using Razer products since 2011 and it has served me very well. That's why I've chosen to stick along side it.

    The Chroma is a nice bonus...

    It's killing me..... I have a Kraken 7.1 Chromo, but I have an older Blackwidow and Naga with just green led's and I feel the need to replace them both even though they work perfectly fine. My temporary fix is to set the leds on the headset to just green and not think about how they can change colors.

    I like to have everything match but I don't. I use razers headset and mouse, the keyboard I use is a corsair one, I like all the macro's it has :x and it hasn't broken yet so theres no need for me to get a new keyboard. If it ever does i'll most likely just buy a razer keyboard as my next one.

    Razer all the way. I've yet to find better keyboards or mice for how I use them.

    Razer setup for life :heart: My only issue with the Blackwidow Chroma is the LED lights for the Num lock, Cap lock and all those, they're white, why not Green and red like the standard?
