Razer Turret review

 

A liberating wireless lapboard for PC gaming on the couch

Sleek wireless design ; Compact frame ; Convenient charging dock

Lacks lighting and dedicated macro keys ; Weak magnetic mousepad ; Small mouse won't work for everyone

The Razer Turret is a lightweight and wireless alternative to other bulky lapboards, but hardcore PC gamers might not love the feature-light design of this wireless peripheral.

Razer Turret

 

The Razer Turret is one of those gadgets that you never envisaged wanting – until you see it, that is.

The Razer Turret isn't perfect, but it works well – and, more importantly, it's easily the best solution for couch-gamers I’ve seen to date.

Razer Turret review

 

Not designed to be a pure gaming keyboard, the Razer Turret is a lap-board best used on the couch with your PC or streaming device hooked up to a big screen. At $170, AU$280 or £150, it's globally available on Razer's online store.

The Razer Turret's mouse magnetization is a nice touch, and the lap-board is great for web surfing and light gaming sessions.

Not apt for intense, competitive gaming sessions, considerably more expensive than similar (though less stylish) options.

If you like to play single player content then the Turret is a more usable piece of tech, but it's just not stable enough for anything competitive.

Razer Turret Review and my living room keyboard dreams

 

I'd been waiting a long time for this keyboard to be released. This, the Razer Turret, a keyboard, mouse, and mousepad made for the living room. I first saw it back at CES 2015. Back then, it went hand-in-hand with the Razer Forge TV, a device that was...

Is the Razer Turret worth the $160 USD it costs straight from Razer? Absolutely. It might surprise you that this keyboard costs more than the Razer Forge TV – that I can’t properly explain, as I’ve not had the opportunity to review that Android TV...

Razer Turret review

 

The Turret tries valiantly to bring the mouse and keyboard to the living room, but ultimately fails.

Stylish and compact design ; Main keyboard deck stays rigid during couch sessions ; Vertical recharging base is convenient

Keyboard lacks media keys ; No backlighting for the keyboard ; Poor wireless range without use of USB extension ; Mouse has low DPI optical sensor ; High price

The Turret is a high-end gaming solution that’s looking for a problem. There’s a reason that almost every attempt to bring both mobile and PC gaming into the living room has eschewed a mouse and keyboard. While it makes sense in theory, using a big,...

Razer Turret review: This compact lapboard works around the living room

 

The Razer Turret (available for $150 on Amazon) is the first mouse and keyboard I don't mind leaving around my living room. Is it 100-percent functional? No. Is it 100-percent practical? Also no. But its compressed size and inconspicuous design make it...

Razer Turret Review and Ratings

 

Slick and solid-feeling for living-room PC gaming, this keyboard/mouse combo gets out of the way when you just want to watch TV. But its trim size is better for short-burst gaming than serious play.

Space-saving dock keeps devices charged and out of the way when not in use ; Solid build quality ; RF and Bluetooth connectivity ; Designed for both Windows PCs and Android ; Synapse settings save to cloud

Keyboard is unnecessarily cramped, lacks macro keys ; No key backlighting ; Mouse is small, and not as feature-packed as gamers might expect

Crafting a collection of gaming peripherals that works great on the couch isn't easy. Designers need to balance space-saving design with features that take up a fair bit of space by their very nature, such as roomy key layouts and dedicated macro keys....

Razer Turret Review — Ready for Your Living Room

 

The Turret sets out to fill a very specific niche in the gaming world, and although it's not a perfect fit, it's a big step in the right direction. The Turret isn't as big or as comfortable as I would have liked, but it's also attractive, functional...

Great wireless options ; Strong overall gaming performance ; Makes living room setups viable

Uncomfortable over long periods of time ; Tiny, righty-only mousepad ; Keyboard not ideal for typing

The Razer Turret isn't a perfect solution for living-room PC gaming, but its great wireless performance and easy lap placement make it a viable one.
