Razer is a common name in the peripherals market, with many, many products including mice, keyboards, speakers, and even their own customized clothing lineup. The Razer Deathstalker Ultimate is their premier gaming keyboard, including a multi-touch LCD track panel, on the fly macro recording, and more. But at $200, it is also prohibitively expensive. Razer has attempted to remedy this with the Deathstalker Expert, a much cheaper version that still has many of the same core features.
The Razer Deathstalker Expert has many of the basics needed for a gaming keyboard, such as macro recording, anti-ghosting, 1000mhz polling rate, and a key to disable the windows key while gaming. In this article for Benchmark Reviews , I will give an overview of this keyboard and Razer’s Synapse 2.0 software before delivering my final verdict on the package.
