Razer: Interview with Robert Krakoff

Staff Writer Carolyn Koh recently had the opportunity to ask a few questions of Robert "Razerguy" Krakoff, the co-founder and President of Razer, about their line of gaming mice.

Not all mice are created equal, nor are keyboards. For the majority of us gamers (especially us MMOG gamers), we direct a lot of attention to the selection of our CPUs and video cards, but our peripherals are an afterthought. We are still using the cheap headset, a wireless mouse, the old key-board that came with the last, last computer build.

As gamers look for better peripherals to enhance their gaming performance, manufacturers are beginning to take notice and only in the past few years have mainstream manufacturers begun to cater to the gamer.

Here at, we've started a section on hardware reviews from the MMO gamers' perspective. I took this one step further and sought out one of the top PC gaming peripheral manufacturers, Razer. Razer leapt into the forefront of the "must have" gaming peripheral when the Razer Boomslang launched in 1999, and became the favorite mouse of professional gamers such as Jonathon "Fatal1ty" Wendell. Then, in 2004, their Diamondback (claimed to be the world's first 1600 dpi optical gaming mouse) won the accolade of being named Gamespot's Gaming Hardware of the Year (Personally, I use that mouse in the spiff red version).
