Razer Marauder, Spectre and Banshee – Official StarCraft 2 Keyboard, Mouse and Headset Review

Razer are a company who have a very strong company vision and brand identity. In our conversations with them in the past it has been clear that they know what makes a good product, are willing to experiment with new ideas, and bin them if they don’t work or make sense and they have no problem taking extra time to develop new peripherals if it means the end result is better. This approach has served them well in the past as their product catalogue is filled with items which are best in class or close to it. Particular highlights in our experience have been the Naga and DeathAdder mice, Mako 2.1 speakers and Carcharias/Megalodon headsets. Each has won awards here on Hardware Heaven and all are used by at least one of our staff as their own peripherals.

Thinking back over time there have been a couple of occasions where Razer have branched out from their normal line, creating a powered by range for Microsoft and DKT but on the whole when a consumer buys a Razer product it is Razer through and through. This is in stark contrast to one of their main competitors, SteelSeries, who have for some time now been releasing licenced products such as the World of Warcraft MMO mouse. The popularity of that product won’t have gone un-noticed in the industry though and may go some way to explaining the products we are reviewing today.

On our test bench we have three new products from Razer, all based on a licence with Blizzard to tie them in with StarCraft 2. The Marauder keyboard, Spectre mouse and Banshee headset feature styling which is completely different to anything else Razer offer and each is designed with StarCraft 2 players and fans in mind. Do they reach Razer’s usual standard of quality? Today we find out and the results are quite surprising…
