Hmm Not really I paid £60 for my razer anansi and £60 for my Naga 2014 as my old naga gave up after 3 years of hard work. Razer are no different to any other company out there

I thought we realised that 'wireless' and 'gaming' when talking about peripherals weren't really optimal?
For 150 quid they can, as usual, do one :P

I agree although the XBONE PS4 players would disagree "but that's just not cricket" oops I forgot about the lazy people

TBH at this point not many people have a dedicated gaming PC in their living room.

Most people now just stream to the living room with a shield, Steam link or an HTPC with Steam In-Home Streaming. That already isn't "optimal" in a competitive sense, so at that point a wireless keyboard isn't much of a loss.

Just my 2 cents.

While I can kinda see the idea behind this, it just doesn't make sense. If you're playing something where you need to play at your best then you'll do it at a desk. If you're playing something for fun like an indie, rocket league or platformer or whatever; then you'll be in your sofa where a controller just makes more sense... I don't see why I'd ever need a mouse/keyboard in my living room for playing games :/

It's not 2003 any more

That price isn't ideal though.
