  1. do you guys @razer plan to make a wireless gaming keyboard to go with the Razer Mamba Chroma... There are none on the market atm and gamers who care about nice,clean looking desk setups would be all over it.

    pls make it, ill be desperately waiting for this to be a thing

    For me (and it is just my opinion) every wireless device expose you to lag, connection problem, lack of precision, batteries issue ... So I will never take any wireless device for gaming, it's too dangerous to risk my k/d ratio when I am playing :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
     
  3. I personally wouldn't by a wireless keyboard mainly due to the lag which i have previously experienced from wireless mice and keyboards. When im gaming i will always choose wired.
     
  4. First of all wireless tech has advanced since then, and I honestly think its time the future is wireless.

    Wireless tech can easily achieve input lag < ~6.88 milliseconds (achieved by the wired Razer deathader chroma). Wireless interference & wireless connection problems should not be an issue if and when this product is released as that would be an inexcusable catastrophic failure!

    As for battery concerns a wireless keyboard would be capable of housing a laptop style battery (or two if placed in the wrist rest), Lasting a minimum of 17 hours of continuous use. 17 hours is the record for the current longest lasting laptop battery.

    Well it seems my views of the near future might just be ahead of its time, too bad cause I'd love to see wireless keyboards taking over in the next 4 years.

    I agree that techonolgy evolve and wireless will greatly improve in the next years. I had many bad experience with wireless mouse and headset in the past with many brand (Logitech, Mad Catz ...).

    For the moment, as far as I am concerned, I will not trust a wireless device for pure gaming, but for many things I think like an old-timer...

    I hope that one day you and me will duel only with wireless device Duncecone McGee ;-)

    If there is a wireless keyboard for gaming, it would able to be wired or wireless like Mamba.

    I think the only problem will be battery. Chroma effects etc etc Will cost lots of Energy.
     
  8. btw guys @razer already has a product like this out there on market shelfs... the Razer Turret "living room gaming mouse and lapboard". A minor redesign and decent battery and you got your self my dream setup!

    That's what I thought, isn't the turret already supposed to be wireless?

    Eh... wireless keyboard would be cool and all, but it wouldn't really be necessary. It would make a cleaner desk setup, but it would probably add lag, you would have to charge it, and so on. Wireless technology in a mouse is important because you move it around a lot, and don't want a wire getting in the way, but a keyboard... basically doesn't move.

    I like wired mouses better because when you are in a match and your battery runs out... then your dead. This always happens to me so I changed over to wired mouses.
     
  13. I hate to charge batteries >_>

    I've been thinking about this for a while, and I can see them finding a way to make it work. The idea of a perfect, lag-free gaming set up is I think a dream for many gamers, and in a few years with wireless tech evolving, I think it could work if ur not in faze or optic.

    I don't even want to think about what the price tag on a wireless BWU would look like...... lol. But in all seriousness it was a huge sacrifice and dilemma for me to go from my wireless microsoft keyboard to my Black Widow. It wasn't easy for me as I HATE having wires everywhere. People obviously are raising valid concerns, input lag and battery life. It is true that wireless technology has come a significant way forwards in recent years, but is it advanced enough for a keyboard? Keyboards would require alot more bandwidth than a mouse, would require alot more battery life, and while obviously not impossible to achieve, it would definitely be a significant challenge. Razer prides themselves on having their own designed mechanical switches which are faster than cherry mx, I don't see them sacrificing that for wireless. I would love if they did, but I don't see it happening anytime soon. They could make it like the mamba where you can use it wired or wireless, but that raises a bunch of other issues, durability and otherwise.

    Input lag would kill gamers. Probably few years later as wireless technology is still slowly getting implemented in products and improving.

    I think it could be a good Idea but I like not having to charge my peripherals when they run out of battery so I most likely wouldn't get it if it came out

    I think the turret is a decent wireless keyboard which could use some improvements. If used for couch gaming would be ok, but for desktop would be more of a hassle. Like mentioned above the need to charge defeats its wireless purpose and needing to change batteries is pretty costly.
    For mice its fine as you will have to move it around and won't have to worry about that wire all over the place.

    At first it seems good, but there are clearly several problems as have been mentioned above. Plus the Mamba only uses 15 lights, a keyboard would be using 50+. I get that LED's are low power devices but still, seems like you would have to plug it in all the time.
