Razer Announces Turret Living Room Keyboard+Mouse for Xbox One

Razer , the leading lifestyle brand for gamers, today introduced a new way to play on console with the Razer Turret for Xbox One, a wireless keyboard and mouse combo designed for Xbox One. "We're extremely proud to team up with Microsoft to bring you this exclusive collaboration," says Razer Co-Founder and CEO Min-Liang Tan. "With the Razer Turret for Xbox One, it is now possible to bring the full experience of a keyboard and mouse, with lighting and game integration to Xbox One."

Built for reliable gaming on the couch, the Razer Turret for Xbox One offers a fast and stable 2.4 GHz wireless connection via a single dongle for the mouse and keyboard, and battery life of up to 40 hours on a single charge. With Xbox Dynamic Lighting and Razer Chroma technology, console gamers now have access to the largest ecosystem of lighting, with up to 16.8-million color options and lighting effects for their keyboard and mouse. Additionally, Razer has been working with developers to bring Xbox Dynamic Lighting and Razer Chroma support in-game, offering immersive experiences on supported titles such as "X-Morph-Defense", "Vermintide 2" and more.
"Razer Chroma expands even further into the living room," says Tan, "building upon the success we've had with Philips Hue in room lighting." The keyboard features Razer's gaming grade mechanical switches engineered for durability and reliability with a lifespan of up to 80-million keystrokes. A dedicated Xbox key also instantly pulls up the Xbox One dashboard for seamless navigation.

The included mouse is modelled after the popular Razer Mamba Wireless gaming mouse and features a high-performance 5G advanced optical sensor and Razer Mechanical Mouse Switches with up to 50-million clicks durability. The mouse surface is conveniently hidden underneath the main body of the keyboard and can be extended for use, then retracted for charging and storage. A built-in ergonomic wrist rest extends from the base of the Razer Turret keyboard for Xbox One for added comfort.

The Razer Turret for Xbox One is also fully compatible with PC (Windows 10), enabling gamers to take their game from the PC to console and back.

I don`t think so, as far as I can tell synapse and all other software is handled by the microsoft store on the xbox
so probably a download, the synapse and chroma port are very new to xbox so I don`t know if the reward software have made it over yet.
Intrigued though, can someone who reviews such things here weigh in on this? also will this pair with more than one device?

That battery life is pathetic, even if you adjust for abundance of LEDs.
My cheapest of the cheap A4Tech Bloody wireless mice did almost twice that (~100 actual work hours on a single charge @500Hz polling rate and 2000cpi)
My G603 is still at nearly full charge after 2 months of being actively used (1-2 hours in gaming mode and 12+ hours in green mode for work every single day incl. weekends).
Even worse for the KB. 43 hours with backlight disabled? What are they using, a homemade hemp-based CR2032 coin cell or something? Or is it running on Lemons?

That form factor is intriguing. Wonder how sturdy the retractable mouse pad is - it needs some good materials and design if it's supposed to rest on your legs like in the photo. If it works (and doesn't break) this looks pretty darn good. Hope they make a version with brown-type keys, though, as I can't stand the clackety-clack of blues.

Unlikely given the need for a dongle, though I doubt there'd be anything stopping you from plugging that dongle into your PC.

Yes because a simple plank with a cushion under it totally doesn't work with your favorite KB+M of choice, does it :)

Back in a day I used to have a big-ass rocking chair. I've glued two wooden sticks to a backside of a binder and turned it into a large detachable handrest mousepad. No aftermarket solution could beat that!
P.S. I miss that chair....:cry:

Some of us don't have living rooms large enough to stow away a plank large enough to fit a keyboard and decently sized mouse pad, which is where solutions like this come into play. Not to mention that having a loose multi-piece solution (cushion, plank, keyboard, mouse pad) would be... impractical any time you have to move or get up, not to mention for lying on the couch, unless you velcro or hot-glue everything into place, which would be pretty janky. Sure, a solution like that would work, but it definitely has its drawbacks. I like Corsair's solution (BYO keyboard and mouse, built-in cable storage), but it's far too expensive for what amounts to a form-fitting plank-and-cushion assembly with an USB extension, and it's quite large even for the TKL versions.

Did you think this through, or? You have little space and buy a fixed KB/M combo for a single use case, instead of repurposing what you have. Makes sense! The plank is easier to store, there is no way around it. Try squeezing that Razer solution in a tight spot somewhere, or better yet, shove it under the couch. I'll take my durable plank any day: one wipe across to remove the dust instead of individual keys. No cat pee over your KB. No hairs under the keys. The list is endless. Planks rule. And srsly, if you cannot store a flat piece of wood in your living space, while you can store a KB/M I'd question your ability for common thought processes, to be fair :)

Other drawback: not fixed. That takes the addition of a rubber surface to your plank to fix. But on most wood you can just place a keyboard and it'll be rock solid because its already got rubber feet. And the mouse 'falling off' can be fixed with a gentle rise at the edge, which only takes some sort of adhesive strip for two bucks.

I mean, yes its ghetto, but it'll work miles better than this overpriced plastic garbage AND it won't break 1 day past warranty.

Do you have a gofundme? have you patented this to protect your IP?
I would buy the SH*T outta that, just make said Plank from aluminium, add some RGB and include the word "gaming" in the product title.

mechanical keyboard is 120$+ for a decent one, gaming mouse 50$+, so 80$ for compatibility and the convenience of the mousepad/rest being built into the keyboard

It's not that far off.

It's not for me, but not too far off in price for what it is.
