Marauder keyboard and Spectre mouse target Blizzard's hardcore

For a keyboard pitched at the StarCraft 2 crowd Razer's Marauder (around £70) is surprisingly simple in its design.

If it's anything like the Razor gear I've owned over the years then it'll probably break after a few weeks of disappointment and trying to convince yourself that it really is better than your old mouse/keyboard and it was definitely worth the extra money.

I've never understood the appeal of Razer stuff or other stuff like it. Take this item for example. Unless I'm missing something it just seems like an incredibly overpriced keyboard to me and as the review states if you turn off the lighting that's essentially what it is, albeit an uncomfortable one. It isn't even wireless and for £70 (when I can get a decent Wifi keyboard for £20) frankly I'd expect it to be able to make my toast in the morning or something.
