Affordable Razer gaming products in 2021

Short before the new 2021 year stepped up, we decided to renovate most of the peripherals we are using but didn't have enough time to research. That is why decided to trust one of the very popular brands these days - Razer

What we ordered was a gaming keyboard, a wireless mouse and a work/gaming headset. And here is our short feedback about each one of them:

Razer Cynosa Lite keyboard

Razer Cynosa Lite keyboard

Razer Cynosa Lite is an entry-level gaming keyboard with simple and elegant design and RGB. It has been couple of weeks since we use it and nothing to complain so far. One thing that I don't particularly like is the big spacing between keys, but that is something typical for most desktop keyboards.

Razer Cynosa Lite specs:

Soft cushioned gaming-grade keys
Single zone Razer Chroma backlighting with 16.8 million customizable color options
Razer Synapse 3 enabled
10 key rollover
Spill-resistant durable design
Fully programmable keys with on-the-fly macro recording
Gaming mode option
1000Hz Ultrapolling
Approximate size: 457mm / 18 in x 174mm / 6.85 in x 33mm / 1.31 in
Approximate weight: 904 g / 1.99 lbs


Razer Basilisk X HyperSpeed mouse

Razer Basilisk X HyperSpeed mouse We chose this affordable wireless mouse because of its good features and affordable price. The Razer Basilisk X HyperSpeed also looks nice - made entirely of black durable plastics. It is also a versatile mouse, good for gaming and work as well.

We particularly liked the Bluetooth connectivity option which allowed us to connect it directly to a Bluetooth enabled laptop without plugging in the additional (included) USB dongle for 2.4 GHz connection.

Razer Kraken X

Razer Kraken X headset

The entry-level Razer headset is another addition to this compilation. What we can say for the Kraken X in general is that it is a very comfortable headset. Sound is OK but not for listening to music, for that we would suggest the higher-end Razer headphones (like the Razer Adaro). 

We also had some troubles with the microphone which transmitted a much worse sound compared with the other headsets we used for a test call via Viber and MS Teams. We will check if this is a permanent behavior or an exception and comment about this problem later. 

Other than that, the Kraken X headset would be the perfect gaming headset, with comfortable and durable design.
