  2. I believe that if you are using it for PVP you need like fully need wired but wireless is fine for single player. Im assuming that your playing normal in both not maxing frame rates or CPU usage and ur Grafrics card isn't struggling or anything.

    While wired keyboards will have a better response time and wont suffer from battery life woes, I'm still thinking there is a need for at least one wireless backlit Razer keyboard. Maybe a Blackwidow variant.

    Case and point: My younger sister is a big Razer fan. She has a Seiren, a Kraken, and a Chroma Orochi. Her monitor is a 51" Samsung HDTV so she needs to sit quite aways from it. She has USB extenders for the Kraken and the Seiren to reach her little table, but she likes to take the keyboard and mouse with her to the other side of the room when she's lounging. The Orochi obviously will reach, but a wired Blackwidow will not. I'm sure she isn't the only person with this type of situation going on.

    The Logitech K800 is proof that a wireless backlit keyboard can be done. Now Razer just has to do it better :)

    I'm always on desktop, so I dont think I would really need one. Although, it does make the workstation pretty clean. i stil worry whether it can hold up for gaming, if razer ever creates one.

    Stay wired if you want to best performance, that's generally true for almost everything

    I'm all in the name for neatness on my desk! But a wired + wireless hybrid like the Razer Ouroboros and Orochi would be really freaking awesome.

    The current wireless technology is not yet advanced enough to eliminate latency and interference. A gaming keyboard with latency and interference is a big no because it defeats the purpose of the product. If they ever make a gaming keyboard which has the technology to eliminate these 2 issues then I would definitely buy one, until then its a no no.

    i think that is bad because if you gaming you dont want to have the keybord in the sofa or something. not for gaming but others can.

    ya i love the wireless clean look. Thats why i opted for a gaming laptop over a desktop. Razer should definitely make a wireless keyboard

    THIS! What a great idea! +1 for a Wired/Wireless hybrid, maybe even recharging the batteries if you use nimh's or something...

    I wouldnt like to change battery all the time, i think Chroma it would use a lot of battery...

  12. I know that the constant change of batteries is annoying, even with my non chroma keyboard, I have to change it like once a month.

    I'll take a wireless gaming keyboard any day. Esp if its mechanical.

    A mini bluetooth keyboard for tablets and smartphones would be good too.

    I use a Logitech Wireless Keyboard on my PC at the moment, which is fine for productivity usage but when it comes to gaming I really want wired keyboard with mechanical keys.

  15. totally not,i prefer one keyboard with cable because it's faster and you didn't need to change the battery

    I personally like wireless keyboards, in gaming keyboards there aren't a lot of wireless options, so it would be a really good product to give customers the option to choose the most convenient to you. But in my opinion, the battery would be a problem.

    I agree! My opinion is that Razer should at least design one variant of the blackwidow and deathstalker to be wireless. Some people like to move around the room/house and wires arent gonna cut it. Wired lovers can stick woth the current line of products

    If they can put a battery that could hold up for at least 10-12 hours of use, then it would be awesome to make the keyboard wireless.

    As people said, battery life would be an issue, but I personally would love a wireless gaming keyboard. If it could support both wireless and wired kind of like Logitech G700s mouse with user replaceable batteries, then that would just be awesome for me, since you could play with it plugged in or wireless, or change out the batteries when needed.
     
  20. Sure, why not? The latency is not high at all and it's practical, apart from the batteries.
