Razer's mouse collection is something of a specialty, they have long been one of the world's best mouse manufacturers for both appearance, sensitivity and comfort.


The Razer DeathAdder Elite is the finest of the bunch in terms of value for money, retailing for around S$100.00. It features an incredible 16,000 DPI (Dots per inch) sensor, comfortable rubber design hand grips, 1000Hz ultrapolling as well as a lightweight seven-foot long cable and a gold plated USB connector.


Not only is it great for its sensitivity and grip, but it looks so cool as well, the Razer DeathAdder Elite contains customizable chroma lighting, so users can have the mouse illuminate their favourite colour when hooking it up to their laptop or PC.

Best Headset: Razer Nari Ultimate

Razer wouldn't be so massive if it also wasn't for their sleek design headsets, their range probably features the best design for single player gaming as well as multiplayer. All of their headsets pack an excellent surround sound gaming experience and added bass boost, to really immerse yourself into whatever you are playing.


Something of a popularity among gamers is to use a big beefy pair of headphones, where the sounds of the game they are playing can really drown out any external noise. The Razer Nari Ultimate does just this - Priced at just under S$300.00, the Nari features Hypersense haptic technology, in addition to THX spatial audio support.


Not the cheapest by all means, but for the sound quality you'll get, you will not have any regrets 3, 6, or 12 months down the line, this durable piece of equipment will dramatically enhance your gaming experience.

Best Keyboard: Razer Huntsman Elite

Top of the list for Razer's keyboard range has to be the Huntsman Elite. For starters, the ergonomics of the keyboard make it very easy to play and work on, the keyboard has a wrist rest made out of plush leatherette, and as we all know, getting sore wrists from frequently gaming is a problem all too common, the Razer Huntsman Elite certainly fixes that.


2020 has been moderately successful for Razer, with sales still proving that demand is there for gaming (one of the better things to enjoy while stuck at home). Razer recently went viral for their new Pokeball storing earbuds. The product has built up a lot of hype due to the crazy popular Pokémon game that has swept through Asia over the last two decades

2020 has been moderately successful for Razer, with sales levels still proving that demand is there for gaming (one of the better things to enjoy while stuck at home). Razer recently went viral for their new Pokeball storing earbuds. The product has built up a lot of hype due to the crazy popular Pokémon game that has swept through Asia over the last two decades.


The IT hardware manufacturer will now be in a lot more people's good books too, with Razer pledging to support their business partners with $50 million (USD) in financial aid. The gaming giant has also proposed to make and donate up to 1 million face masks, a vital piece of PPE (personal protective equipment) that Singapore and indeed the world will need as cases continue to grow exponentially.
