1 out of 5 eggsAbsolute Garbage

Pros: looks cool

Cons: the software is completely garbage and because of that the touchscreen portion of the keyboard never works.

Other Thoughts: don't waste your money on this

3 out of 5 eggsHalf Awesome Half Annoying

Pros: I love the physical design. I'm extremely picky with my keyboards and I've got to have slim keys. I've owned both this one and the standard version and believe it or not the keys on this one feel better. I also love the lighting options and of course the extra keys. Just the overall feel of this thing is amazing. Works great on Windows 7.

Cons: This is where I get agitated. If you use Windows 8 or newer, say bye bye to the right side of the keyboard. The Switchblade UI will not work. Period. I've been going back and forth with Razer support for about 2 weeks now and they simply keep running me around in circles telling me to try stuff I've already done over and over. The first time I submitted a ticket I just got some chucklehead telling me "We're working around the clock to improve support. Thank you." If you're wanting to buy this keyboard and have Windows 8 or higher, just get the normal one because Switchblade is useless unless you're on 7. If you're on 7 though like I said, it's fine. The headache it's given me though makes me second guess whether I want to keep the stinkin' thing.

Other Thoughts: Great keyboard if you use Windows 7. If you upgrade to 8, 8.1, or 10, say bye to the Switchblade UI. Razer support is also pretty pathetic so far.

2 out of 5 eggsAlright Keyboard, LCD is useless

Pros: Keyboard itself is pretty decent for a non-mechanical one, backlight is customizable to any color. Razer Synapse macro setup works as required and I don't see a problem with the software that some others complain about. Wrist rest has a nice feel to it.

Cons: The Switchblade UI is all but useless:

Most of the small selection of apps for don't work properly or flake out sooner than later. For instance the Spotify app broke a month after I bought this last year cause Spotify updated their API. After multiple bug reports from me it is still broken nearly a year later.

The youtube app stops working when ads are played and its a pretty well known fact that youtube plays ads. The touchscreen is has very poor response to touch most times requiring multiple swipes to get something done.

The only app that mostly works is a simple Notes application. And it is buggy at times, so don't count this as a blessing.

The 10 tactile keys collect dust in them leaving black dots on the app icons forever. I have not found a way to clean them as of yet.

Really I just wish I bought the Black Widow from Razer.

Other Thoughts: Razer has a deal called the bug hunt where they encourage bug reports to them and promise a gift card for helpful bug reports. They DO NOT do anything about bugs. I submitted quite a few for several Razer products I bought that were verbose and helpful about very obvious bugs and they never did a thing.

Don't get me wrong, I like Razer, I got a Razer Taipan mouse, I love it. I bought the Tiamat 7.1 surround sound headphones, absolutely love them. I also have the Tartarus Game Pad, I use that between my Saitek X52 Pro playing Elite: Dangerous and I don't even need the keyboard.

But for the Deathstalker Ultimate like I said in the Cons, I wish I bought the Black Widow keyboard from Razer. It's not Razer that's the problem (well in some cases it is) it's that Switchblade UI is a new technology for them and they hardly have any of the kinks worked out and using it frustrates me every time I give it another chance. I check after every update to see if the buggy apps got a fix and they never do.

Don't get this keyboard unless you hate the numpad and would rather have a useless picture of your choice in it's place.

1 out of 5 eggsI mean it looks cool but.....

Pros: Looks awesome.

Cons: Id like to think of more good things to say but theres really not a whole lot of good to say. Its expensive, the keys feel weird, the apps dont work or dont work right, you have to deal with the razer synapse shenanigans, ect.

So for all the apps there is most of of them just dont work. There arent even all that many apps. Youd think theyed have specialized apps for at least World of Warcraft, or a few other big games. But all they have is a few apps for League of Legends that are hard to use, Battlefield 3 app that isnt useful, Skyrim app that no one needs (and it doesnt work well), Team Fortress two trackpad app (I mean who needs this to play TF2), and a counterstrike app. Thats it for games.

There is some other apps that are kind of neat I guess but they dont work in any way thats really useful. Its a trackpad mostly. Which no one really needs.

The price on this thing is so high for a keyboard I figured it'd have to have some redeeming features. But it really doesnt. Theres almost no support for it and no real use for its main bragging features.

Yeah it has built in Youtube and Facebook but you can just alt+tab out of the game or just run dual screens for just about the same price of this keyboard. The Facebook app is a pain to use, and the Youtube app doesnt ever quite work right. The media player app crashes constantly so dont count on this to control your music whilst gaming.

Other Thoughts: There is one app thats somewhat useful I suppose. The Mirror Mode app lets you zoom in on one part of you screen while gaming and puts it on the trackpad screen. Or you could just look at the map on the screen. But whatever if you want to spend the money go for it. But seriously dont buy this. Buy the Logitech G510. Cheaper and better all around.

4 out of 5 eggsSimply an amazing concept with somewhat poor execution

Pros: Amazing UI and contact with the company where as others have complained i have had nothing but positive experiences with Razer they make their system easy to access in the United States, Though i hate to say it this is the best keyboard experience i have had in a long while even though it is a membrane keyboard

Cons: The touch screen can be a little frigidity at times. So that can be a major problem for people using it heavily. By my guess by the end of the year many of the problems with the touch screen can be fixed and done to a higher standard

Other Thoughts: I had gotten this with a deep discount but it didn't effect my review in any way. Overall this is a great concept that has more kinks to that need to be worked out

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Even without signing in to synapse; the keyboard acts as a normal keyboard.
The screen is pretty cool and I've used the resource monitor and the web browser more than the other apps.
After re-installing synapse it worked just as it was supposed to.

Cons: The original installation with the synapse and such is basically garbage.
There is a very noticeable screen delay when using any of the apps.
The hand rest is not much of a hand rest at all.

Other Thoughts: The keyboard itself works great and I love the ability to use the resource monitor on the keyboard screen.
Before buying the keyboard for the screen, think real hard how much you're actually going to use it. Still pretty awesome keyboard though.

1 out of 5 eggsDo Not Buy

Pros: NONE

Cons: If you want customer support buy from another company. They provide ZERO phone support and will supposedly get back with you in 24 hours if you submit a ticket but I have submitted ticket on the keyboard and one of their gamepads and they never answer you.

Other Thoughts: I highly recommend not buying this product as if you have problems you will be unable to get any support from Razer.

5 out of 5 eggsAbsolutely Awesome

Pros: Great interface, comfortable wrist rest, quick and easy to set up, responsive, quiet typing, and extremely multipurpose

Cons: Not really much to say here, although it does seem a little light to me, I guess that's not even such a bad thing. Does seem to get dirty pretty easy though, and I did have to restart Synapse 2.0 a couple of times before everything was working smoothly. It does also take up two USB plugs, which is somewhat annoying, since I was already short to begin with. But for what it is, it's pretty easy to get over.

Other Thoughts: I am a huge fan of multipurpose technologies, this is a great example of that, with built in UI and app launcher, that also acts as a track pad while my Ouroboros is charging. I'm really glad I chose the Deathstalker Ultimate over some of the other options.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat keyboard

Pros: Love chiclet keyboards! best keyboard you can buy, although its pricey. Great feel and comfort. The apps just keep getting better and better. Also Razor gives you the ability to make your own apps.

Cons: Price, but in the end its worth the money!

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent yet Expensive

Pros: - Programmable Macros -- for both the dedicated macro keys and the rest
- Full RGB color support for backlit LED
- Sleek and comfortable, as long as you don't want cherry-keys
- LCD screen is multifunctional, supporting custom apps for system monitoring, etc...
- LCD screen doubles as mouse trackpad

Cons: - Razer software is notoriously buggy
- Native apps are pretty worthless
- Price
- not mechanical keys

Other Thoughts: Do not pay attention to the ridiculously poor ratings that some users have given... this is a great keyboard. Yes, it is expensive. Yes, many of its features are superfluous. However, if you are willing to drop the $, this keyboard is great.

My favorite feature is the LCD. It can be used for custom scripted applets. For example, I use the LCD to display system monitoring data (via AIDA64).

I do not like the feel of mechanical cherry-style keyboards, so I find the ergonomics to be superb.

The software is buggy, but not so bad.

Again, I just saw the rating and view 3/5 eggs to be ludicrous... so look elsewhere for more in-depth reviews.
