    I don't know about most of you, but I love using my Razer peripherals when I'm not gaming. My collection of Razer gear is slowly growing, but from Day 1 I've been using it at work as much as I can.

    Most of the photos of people's setups are their gaming setups, but I'm interested to see how others use Razer products at work. I've got a few photos of my workstations at various events over the past year — I work mostly in corporate AV — at various venues around the Brisbane area. See if you can pick out the Razer product(s)! Most were taken with my iPhone, so I apologize for the low resolution (those of you looking on 4k monitors).

    Show us YOUR Razer products in your workplace!

    **And remember, this IS a public forum, so think twice before posting any photos that could get you in trouble at work!!!**

    Razer Work 2.jpg RACV Royal Pines - Vision Op again.
    Razer Work 3.jpg Client venue in the city - more Vision.
    Razer Work 4.jpg Jupiters Casino - Vision Content this time.
    Razer Work 5.JPG Empire Church Theatre in Toowoomba. Vision and Lights (minimal) this time. First shot with my BWCS and Goliathus Extended Speed Overwatch mousepad. I need more Razer mice: I'm sick of having non-Razer mice in my photos.

    I use my Razer Nabu pretty regularly at work. Gives me notifications for work email and google-hangouts (which is what we use for in-corporate communication) right on my wrist. I've recommended it to a few other co-workers as well.

    I use a Razer deathadder and sphex in the office while keeping another Razer deathadder and kabuto in the work bag.

    Oh...a third Razer deathadder with manitocor in the home office....=)

    I don't work outside the home, being a mod here is currently my only "job" outside of being a mom and running the household. lol

    However, back when I was working I never would've taken Razer products to work. First, I doubt they would've been accepted and second I hardly would've used them anyway. (I worked in a hospital with the medical/surgical floor on nights)

    Haven't taken mine to work yet as I'm still getting every things transferred over from my other laptop. But, I did buy it for school, work, and mobile gaming. So it'll be well worth the price for me as it's going to be as much a tool as a luxury item. I'm finishing up school for AutoCAD and will likely need a laptop for working on project whenever I want. For school I'll be using it for documents and projects and my laptop I'm replacing has been invaluable for doing this when I want to make a trip on the weekends to the cabin to get away. So something alot smaller and lighter should be even better suited for this. :wink_:

    Chroma party in da office!!

    Jokes aside I order my blade to use it as a gaming and productivity laptop but I would not really use any razer gear at work because I mostly don't see the point. I bought my Logitech g600 to use it's customisable button as macros and shortcuts for the diverse software I'm using (I'm a sucker for shortcuts)

    I'm also a sucker for blue switches and share my office so that's not really compatible neither =D

    Are those all your laptops, or are they company owned?

    As of now, I only work at a chinese resturant as a cashier (Im 18 and going through college, needed a part time) and I use my laptop all the time there. Infact my manager bought a psr and Far cry four and plays it on a tv under the counter, so they dont mind. I would imagine that in a more professional workplace they really shouldnt care what laptop you use if you get your work done.

    The only one that is mine is one of the MacBook Pros that would be in every shot. It's better than the company ones: 1TB SSD, better processor, and I trust my software more than the stuff usually used by the company for video playback.

    They prefer if I don't use my own gear for work, because if something goes wrong with my gear there's no excuse and it's not what the client ordered and paid for, yadd yadda yadda. The amount of times I've been boned by the company gear, though, exceeds the amount of times that my gear has messed up, not to mention the amount of times me having my MBP* on-hand saved the day. My clients are always happy, as well, so when my gear finally dies and messes up a show so badly that we lose a client or have to refund thousands of dollars, THAT'S when I'll stop using my own computer.

    I also want a PC for work, because I've been getting more into work that NEEDS a PC, or at least has software that just works better on Windows than on Mac OS. If I can get a machine that can do everything I need to on the Windows side, and that will play killer games at a high framerate, as well, then I'll be all set.

    I couldn't get away with chroma lighting at work but if I wanted to use say a Naga mouse no one would care. I just don't know that its necessary to do so. These are accessories meant for heavy gaming use. I have brought mice in to work at past jobs that had really old equipment but generally I wouldn't bring something this nice or expensive to work.

    I think if I worked in an office I might think the same way ... except for my Naga Epic Chroma ... I'd still use that.

    Those setups in my photos are somewhat on the small side, though. On the larger end I'd have 8-10 laptops in front of me (1/2 of them as backup), and a lot of those times I wouldn't actually be able to have them directly in arm's reach. I'd rather have a solid, reliable mouse in front of me, especially one that I can customize, instead of a stock Logitech or Microsoft mouse.

    I buy things to use them. I get to use them a lot more at work than I do at home. I wish it were the other way around, but sadly that isn't the case..

    And my new Goliathus Extended Speed Overwatch mousepad is the perfect space for multiple mice.

    Razer products are of a pretty good quality and are designed to be multi-purpose, I don't see any reason not to use them anywhere and everywhere.

    That is like saying you can't use a Macbook outside of Starbucks:big_grin_:

    I don't think any of these posts are doubting the quality or saying the gear won't hold up in the work place it's just that you might not need something this good or expensive to poke around an Excel sheet or type emails at work. At the same time though if you use a device at home and love it I can certainly see wanting to have the same gear at work.

    Hahaha! Lots of downtime means lots of time to customize the work machines, lighting, and screens.

    This is my workstation from the past three days - the only Razer gear are at the bottom: my Blackwidow Chroma Stealth, Naga Epic Chroma, and Goliathus Extended Speed Overwatch mousemat. All the rest are just a bit of wishful thinking.

    I have an old Naga at my workplace and a new Naga in my house. I use it in the office so that I won't feel the gap in changing mouse sensitivity. I even bring it with me when I'm outstation, and probably because of this the USB is getting loose.

    Now I even bought a Tactical Backpack Pro, for the waterproof. I ride to work everyday even though when it's raining, so yeah. :cool_:
