Just in time for Star Wars Day, Razer has launched a series of monochromatic accessories in black-and-white tones through its partnership with Disney. The Stormtrooper-themed collection includes a mechanical keyboard, wireless mouse, and a massive mouse pad. The collection was launched in conjunction with the event that is held on May 4 each year and was designed in partnership with Disney’s Lucasfilm. May 4 was chosen as a pun on the catchphrase May the Force be with you: May the Fourth be with you.

“Donning the iconic stormtrooper design, the Razer BlackWidow Lite mechanical keyboard and Atheris wireless mouse are built for productivity and performance, tuned for both the office and home environments,” Razer said in a release. “The Star Wars-themed Razer Goliathus Extended gaming mouse mat completes the set with a massive surface area for intense work sessions and high-adrenaline gaming.”

These new peripherals bear the same signature and key features as the original accessories. Like the original BlackWidow Lite, the Stormtrooper edition from the Star Wars collection features the same Razer Orange Mechanical Switches with O-rings for quiet operation while still being responsive. The keys are individually backlit, and given that this is a wired keyboard, there is also a black-and-white braided cable. The Imperial crest sits on top of the escape key to complete the theme. The BlackWidow Lite Stormtrooper Edition keyboard retails for $99, a $10 premium over the standard version.

The companion Razer Atheris Mouse is also similarly themed in Stormtrooper colors and features the same 2.4GHz wireless or Bluetooth connectivity as the standard edition in a pocket-sized form factor. The themed edition retails for $59, a $10 premium over the standard $49 version, and comes with the Stormtrooper helmet design printed on top of the mouse itself. There is also a Goliathus Extended Gaming Mouse Mat with a similar Stormtrooper design to complete the lineup of Star Wars themed accessories. The mouse pad retails for $34 and features a taut weave that Razer claims is optimized for sensitivity.

Samsung and LG Display are teeing up to battle for the panel in your monitor.

Normally, you don't need to think about the panel inside your monitor. You look at the brand, assess the features, seek out an independent review, and make your buying decision. For OLED gaming monitors, however, the panel couldn't be more important, as LG and Samsung Display tackle the growing display technology in very different ways.

I sat in Razer’s new gaming chair, and my back loved it
The Razer Iskur V2 in a demo room.

I'm a father of two, and my back hasn't been the same these past few years. At CES 2024, I took a seat in Razer's new Iskur V2 gaming chair -- and I could really feel the difference in support on my lower back.

The best feature is the new lumbar support, which Razer calls the "6D Adjustable and Adaptive Lumbar Support System." It's unlike any gaming chair I've ever sat in -- or any other desk chair, for that matter. Essentially, the spring-loaded mechanism built into the cushion allows you to lean left and right in the chair, with the rotation supporting you at every angle in real time. Razer calls it a "one of its kind" innovation in ergonomics, and from my experience, I have to agree.

The Razer Blade is losing its edge
The Razer Blade 14 and 18 on a table.

For years, a more cutting-edge gaming laptop than the Razer Blade has not existed. But at CES 2024, other companies have started pulling ahead in some key areas.

It's not that Razer didn't bring updates this year -- don't get me wrong. The Razer Blade 16 now has what Razer calls the first 16-inch 240Hz OLED gaming laptop, and while that is technically true, it's not as impressive as it sounds. In fact, Razer had a 15-inch 240Hz OLED laptop just last year, which is nearly identical. It comes with Intel's Raptor Lake Refresh HX chip and still can be configured up to an RTX 4090 for graphics.
