    I was logged on about 830am PST and was there for the entire stream (cept for lunch and dinner and the occasional bathroom breaks). I honestly thought it was pretty cool. the last Con i had attended was years ago (blizzcon) and well it was overwhelming/busy - was so much to see and was hard to keep with the program and get to what i wanted to see/hear. with this streamed i found myself tuned into the program more and was able to keep up.

    The keynote gave me some chills - just seeing how far Razer has come and what its doing for gamers, and the environment was even better. KUDOS!

    The panels were awesome and gave me some insight on products (current and upcoming).....xmas lights ill be ordering for sure!

    Senki Snek - I saved 20 trees that day - AWESOME. hopefully the pair of sneks will be here soon! also grabbed a base station because, well RGB of course.

    yep....i was sold...pre-ordered the Iskur. cant wait for that to arrive - it will be replacing my Respawn chair which is only 8 months old.

    After-party - i cannot even begin. lets start at synapse ync - WOW. from the get go it was cool, but when the music started going....it was game over - lights out in office and i found myself vibin' hard. loved it and cant wait for more streams from Razer to do this. what a delight.

    great amount of panels, interviews and showcases - of course we (i speak for all of us) would have liked to see a Chroma Toaster unveil, but maybe next year hehe.

    was pretty cool as i was a giveaway winner (no nothing big) but i got some Razer Gold and Silver - cool in my book.

    love Razer as a company and what they are doing to help the world (masks) and the environment (sneki!)

    all in all - for something that was a first-time try Razer in my opinion NAILED IT. I am looking forward to #Razercon2021 and all its glory.

    I thought the whole event was amazing. From the keynote speech to the smooth transitions between presenters. The chroma controlled performances were amazing.

    As far as the reveals I was a little underwhelmed with some of the new stuff. I was hoping razer would expand into more of the rgb hardware. For example would be expanding on the hardware development kit and making more light strips to connect to synapse. Another desire is to have synapse work more integrated with manufacturers products instead of using razer products as a master led to control products.

    I did however like that we finally have a chair that looks to be more functional and not a cheap racing chair. I think the Sneki Snek was a great product for a great cause. Excited for mine to come in. I am glad Razer has also expanded on the cases. I would prefer to have the lighting ability that some of these cases have released as a product to make any case be controlled by synapse. The new microphone seemed like a perfect size and perfect price point for anyone who is looking to get into the streaming world like myself. I was also impressed with the new 13" Razer stealth. Smaller form factor with some power house specs. Not to mention thinner than a dime!

    I was a little confused about the points system that everyone in chat kept bringing up. Did this have some kind of impact on the raffles or points for earn razer gear?

    All in all I was impressed with Razercon and hope the company continues to have the event.

    Side note: Was any formal announcement of the raffles or the battlestation show down annouced with pictures? Would have been cool to see who won and what the setups were like.

    In the overall new product introduction, I enjoy most of it, like the kitty headset, finally had a wireless version.

    I aim for the Razer's very first gaming chair, I was planning to buy one of the Dxracer version. But the New Iski is very expensive in comparison.

    Just hoping it will be available to my region in near future.

    I enjoyed it, this con was long over due

    I liked the interviews and panels. Watching product managers showcasing products was nice, and I do hope that seeing these guys doing demo's becomes a regular thing

    I do hope one day for things to return to normal in the world, and this become a thing IRL

    At one point, I even contemplated making the drive out to the vegas store to say "hello" to those on camera =)

    It was really good event, i was looking primery for new products, the chair is very nice, hope someday it will available in Europe. The Tomahawk is another product very intersting for me. The disappointment for me was the time, it was during the night, so i have to skip alot of it, but thats my problem :)

    Hello friends,

    I have to admit that I was surprised by the Razercon, it was the best event of 2020 for me.
    Razer CEO Min-Liang Tan made a perfect presentation, in order of preference:

    - The new Razer Kraken BT kitty edition headset thanks to its ultra light weight is great news, as I often find the headphones too bulky and heavy to compare to airpods, but here we have the advantage of quartz chroma kitty ears and lightness, perfect.
    The Tick Tock dance challenge "#Razerlearntomeow was also great fun well done for the initiative.

    - The partnership with the Conservation International association, the Razer company proves once again that it is a responsible company in favor of ecology, it gives me great pleasure because our planet is really in danger if we do not protect the trees , we destroy the protective atmosphere of the planet and all forms of life, I am proud of Razer, Thank you Min-liang Tan for creating Sneki Snek every purchase saves 10 trees, Besides, he's so cute, ^ _ ^

    - The Razer Viper Ultimate Cyberpunk 2077 Edition mouse.

    - Razer Iskur Gaming Chair, I hope you will also do a Quartz version.

    - Finally, PC case, Asrock chroma motherboard, Blade laptop

    I am forgetting an important health safety note, I would like to share a tip for covid masks, I hope you will share with all of your partners and Razer company employee.
    Because the influencers kept putting their hands on their masks during the show.

    After installing the protective mask on your face, you should not touch it with your hands except when you take it off, this is really important to avoid the spread of contamination and if it does not have a nose rest for to prevent it from slipping, use a piece of tape or sparadrag between the nose and the mask so that it does not slip.

    I hope you find my advice helpful.

    Take care of yourself, your family and friends, :)

  14. I logged in at 8:30 Am for the start of the show and popped in on and off to see different segments of the program. I thought that the idea to check in with the store in LV was a great idea as they were genuinely interested in the different panelists and announcements throughout the day and could provide raw reactions and opinions as the show progressed.

    The keynote at 9 am was amazing; I missed that style of presentation since covid hit with a presenter on a huge stage ready to dish what they've got in store. Plus the integration of the RGB and the global chats onstage was very well done. The Iskur looked very comfortable, Wireless kitten headset looks fashionable as always (sidenote: the TikTok dance challenge was slightly cringey but fun), Seiren mini looks very functionally versatile, Tomahawk is clean and sleek, and all the chroma stuff looked very cool. But I'm a poor college kid who can't afford any of these and just enjoy looking at them.

    Love the environmental initiative with the Sneki Snek. Cute plush with the 10 trees planted ambition to boot, well done Razer.

    I think some more versatility with the chroma would be appreciated. From what I observed the chroma functionality has to be licensed out to different companies. I think the option to integrate chroma with smart lights would help people make their setups even better. Yes, the Christmas lights looked cool, and I can already imagine people doing non-Christmas stuff with them. But even just a generic light strip with RGB would make a world of difference, and maybe inspire people to make those toasters that they've begged razer for years.

    Question about the giveaways: is the #razercon2020 grand raffle still ongoing? I heard that they were extended to a week after the show but I can't find conclusive evidence. I won the 5 gold/500 silver giveaway so that was well appreciated.

    After party was pretty lit too. The acts all did a fantastic job and their setups with the RGB were very slick. I can only imagine what it must have looked like with an RGB setup synced to the music.

    Overall a very well-done presentation. I really hope this becomes a thing IRL when the world is allowed to come back together again. It would be really cool to go out to vegas or wherever the convention is and attend in person. But watching it from home was enjoyable as well. Regardless, can't wait for Razercon2021 in all its glory.

    I stayed for the most part, only had to go away for the afterparty, but the event was awesome. The keynote given by Min-Liang was superb, he really brings out the best in the Razer community. And SNEKIIIII, mine arrived yesterday and I'm sooo happy with it, definitely the best Razer product out there (besides the eventual Toaster)!

    The best I think is that in some sections, my Razer keyboard's chroma was synergy with the theme of the current event. That is none of the company could do nor Apple's con or other crappy gaming peripheral company imitaters

    Basically, I'm from India and I have to Watch the program from 9:30 PM to 1:00 AM. I can't even sleep because of the on going party done by #RAZER. It was wonderful. Overall a very well-done presentation. I really hope this becomes a thing, when the world is allowed to come back together again. It would be really cool to go (or) wherever the convention is and attend in person. But watching it from home was enjoyable as well. Regardless, can't wait for #Razercon2021 in all its glory and #THANK YOU RAZER for all those giveaways.

    personally, i like the Iskur best. but i'm going to hold on to my money a bit longer to check out the actual usage reviews and abuse of the Iskur first. pleasantly surprised by the pricing... definitely in my plans to get one soon.

    Wait a second, can you get the "nice" achievement multiple times? Oh well, I tried to be on for most of the razer-con and it was really cool! Would have thought that Razer would give out a small amount of silver to everyone watching the stream at some point, or release the toaster, that would be something they would do. I think the plushie is a bit too expensive for a plushie, but I see why. Since first of all, it's Razer, and second of all, they are planting 10 trees for each plush sold. I'm probably not getting anything released on razer-con, but I might. I also feel like Razer's partnership with Amazon on prime-day should have had more deals. I just saw that they were selling stuff on Amazon, didn't see any deals on Prime day. I feel like Razer should open more Razer stores because none of them are even close to where I live. I know this is supposed to be about Razer-con and that I went off-topic, but that's just what I think.
