Razer. Any true hardcore gamer would hear the name and would stop waliking in their footsteps. It’s that heart stopping of a brand today in the world of first person shooter games as well as MMORG platforms. As a matter of fact, all other major gaming peripheral makers such as SteelSeries, Zowie Gear, Cyborg; as the list goes on, all are competing against the snake branding giant. But most of them fail to leave their mark onto the current gaming community. That’s where Razer comes in.
In the past, we have reviewed many of Razer’s high end gamer peripherals. From the expert Ironclad mousepad to the FPS killer Imperator and MMORPG master Naga, all have been remembered for the ‘edge’ they give in a user’s gameplay.

Razer Megalodon – for most people, just mentioning the name Razer is enough to establish an opnion about the quality of the product. That’s because the brand name is almost synonymous with professional gaming. But as we had previously seen with the Razer Spectre, Razer Banshee, Razer Marauder and Razer Nostromo, that’s not always the case. In fact the recent StarCraft II and TRON branded series turned out to be less than spectacular, which we have come to expect from every Razer product.
Which means the Megalodon not only has to fill the shoes of the previous champs in the series, but also has to go the extra mile to clean the brand’s name of the tarnish which the aforementioned products left behind.
The Megalodon is certainly equiped for the job – promissing 7.1 channel virtual surround sound along with a superior noise cancelling headset and an attractive design, the Razer Megalodon looks poise to be ranked among the best of the best in PC gaming audio. On paper that is. Almost all tech enthusiasts know that gadgets rarely perform as advertised and the actual experience can vary greatly. Which brings us to the purpose of this review – jump on in after the break to see if the Razer Megalodon indeed have what it takes to win the crown.
