This would be cool if you had a modded case that was TRON themed to go along with the peripherals. They do seem a bit pricey though.

I might get that keyboard and throw a keyboard cap on it so it's forever pristine... will depend on how it looks in real life. I'll pass on the rest...

The keyboard looks pretty cool. Lil pricey tho. I will never like that mouse. It looks flat like it was ran over by the batmobile. lol. I have good size hands like most guys do. I like the big round mice that fills in your hand arched. The mouse pad does look good. Hopefully its a good size.

Doing these things in theme of the tron movie is a nice idea, but really alot of the themed stuff that comes out never make it big, i.e. aion keyboard. Having all the lites during night time gaming can be distracting. Then after the first wk or two. I won't even notice that " hey I have the tron keyboard". Lol nice idea but I'm not gonna spend that that much on a board. My cyborg is good enough for now. JMO

Between this and their Starcraft II lineup, it seems Razer's trying to push themselves into a niche market.

Keyboard looks interesting, mouse pad looks decent (as do all their other pads), but the mouse looks like it'll give me carpel tunnel.

Would drop, eh, $80 on the keyboard, but not $150! The other two are pretty meh... The mouse actually looks downright uncomfortable. Has a Sidewinder type of feel to it...

I think the whole package is cool, but t77 is right. Give people the option of blue or red.

@Sol ... You DO need this. You know you do.

Me too. Tron was my favorate movie growing up because it was so "futuristic" for the day. Cant wait for the new one coming our way. One of the few movies I will actualy watch in the theater. I hate theaters. Oh. the mouse pad looks cool also. ;)
