Razer Turret For Xbox One Review

Razerthink – The Razer Turret is a unique keyboard specifically designed for use on the Xbox One (complete with its nexus Xbox keys). The Turret has a high-friction rubber bottom designed to help it stay in place while you’re comfortable on the couch, as well as a sliding magnetic tray for your Mouse. Even if you play at a slight angle, the magnetic surface makes the Mouse much easier to use on your lap, as a result. It is the second iteration of the Turret, but it is the first of its kind in many ways. That’s because Razer partnered with Microsoft to create the first wireless keyboard specifically designed for the Xbox One and licensed by Microsoft.

The Turret has Razer’s proprietary mechanical switch—the Razer Green—and a retractable mouse pad. The mouse pad is decorated with magnets designed to keep your Mouse from slipping when perched on your lap. The Turret also comes with a dedicated Xbox key that gives you access to the Razer Chroma home screen and lighting, and all of this costs $250.

The Turret is equipped with a wireless mouse, a rotatable keyboard, and a USB dongle to connect its wireless signal. The dongle works on Xbox One and PC and connects with Razer software to manage Chroma exposure, mouse sensitivity, and more. You can set up different profiles for different scenarios from either Xbox or PC, using the modern Xbox app on the console, which is very well made.

For a long time, game consoles did not have access to the various peripherals that PC gamers could enjoy. And while Xbox One X players still can’t use some of the weirder PC gaming peripherals, Microsoft now supports keyboard and mouse compatibility on Xbox family devices, which is where peripherals like the Razer Turret fit in. The Razer Turret is an amazing kit that demonstrates Razer’s attention to detail.

When you take the Razer Turret out of its packaging, the first thing you’ll notice is how heavy the Razer Turret is: the keyboard only, with the included retractable mouse pad, weighs up to 4.1 lb., all of which are made of metal. There’s no doubt that the Razer Turret is one solid peripheral, and you shouldn’t have to worry about picking it up after one messy gaming session.

Turret keyboard: the keyless model measures 15.4 x 7.6 x 1.5 inches and weighs 4.1 pounds. You may wonder why the tenkeyless model is almost as long as a standard full-size keyboard, but that’s all to accommodate a retractable mousepad. The mousepad sits under the keyboard until you extend it, at which point you’ll get an 8-inch surface to play with. It’s not huge, by any means, but it’s big enough to accommodate a full-size Turret gaming mouse.

There is a unique space located under the spacebar. You can enjoy it and use it on your sofa; this space is a blessing. You’re going to need a wrist rest if you’re planning on running some marathon games, and this space provides just that. And if you flip the keyboard over, it’s covered with this waxy non-slip material. Works, but man, it gets dirty fast. Double if you have a cat like us. The Razer Turret is relatively easy to clean with a damp cloth; clean it regularly.



All the world’s matte black and glitzy lights can’t stop the Turret from looking like a keyboard expected from a forthcoming movie. Unlike other keyboards, the keys are not located in holes, meaning you can see just below where the light shines. Looks like it’s going to be a shaky mess in your lap. But you’ll notice how sturdy this thing is once you take it out of the box. Even without an extended mouse pad, the Razer Turret is huge. With it extended, it’s only half an inch shy of two feet wide and just over 7 1/2 inches long. That, paired with its sheer weight, makes the Turret feel incredibly stable in your lap.

The Mouse itself is very similar to the Razer DeathAdder Elite. The same number of buttons, the same layout, and even very similar specifications up to 16,000 DPI. The only difference from DeathAdder Elite is that this Mouse is wireless. It’s high praise because DeathAdder Elite is one of the favorite gaming mice seen from its sales and reviews of several Top Esport players about this Mouse.

Returning to the top of the keyboard, the keys are elevated above the body instead of having the keyboard deck hidden into the body. It provides a premium look and feels. This raised design also makes it easier to clean. You don’t have to worry about your hair falling out and falling off, skin and food crumbs falling into the gaps between the buttons because it’s very easy to clean.

When it comes to mousepads, we get a magnetic mousepad, which makes a huge difference in playback. While previous Turret models had small mousepads where even a slight movement could send the Mouse flying out of your hand, the new Turret holds it firmly in place. The magnet isn’t so strong that you can’t move the Mouse as usual, but it does mean that if you start to lose your Mouse along the edges, it won’t fall to the floor.

Oddly enough, Turret’s main selling point – Xbox One compatibility – is one of the least appealing things about the peripheral. That’s because while the device works fine for Xbox One navigation, only a few games support mouse-and-keyboard play. Currently, Razer only lists 18 compatible games, and most of them are indie games like Wargroove and Bomber Crew. (To be honest, Wargroove is good, and you should play it if you like strategy games.) Fortnite, Minecraft, and DayZ are all supported, as was Gears of War 5 when it was released. But that’s a pretty little choice for such an expensive peripheral.

However, the Turret also works well with computers, making it the ideal companion for PC setups in the living room. I’m surprised that Razer doesn’t create a bigger problem than this, as the Turret works well with Steam, Blizzard, GOG, simple productivity programs, and just about any media app, you can think of. It’s not as big and comprehensive as competing devices from Corsair, but that also means it’s not that complicated. The Turret won’t fill your entire desk, especially if you keep folding the mousepad when it’s not in use.\

You’ll have access to the Razer Synapse software, which you can use to adjust (very pretty) RGB backlighting, adjust point-per-inch sensitivity (DPI) or create individual profiles for games – at least on PC. It’s worth noting that while you can set up different profiles on the Xbox One, you can’t link them to specific games, so you’ll have to do a bit of manual setup before each game if you want very different colors or DPI settings.

Wireless connectivity during my tests was flawless in a living room setting (about 10 feet from the system), free of lags and inaccuracies. Razer also promises impressive battery life: up to 50 hours from the Mouse and 40 hours from the keyboard, at least with all the lights off. With all the lights on, you’ll get about 20 from the Mouse and 10 from the keyboard, which should be enough for all but the longest marathon sessions.

There is usually a lot of noise, especially in the 2.4Ghz range. But Razer has taken this into account as well, so Razer uses Razer’s proprietary Adaptive Frequency Technology (AFT), which allows it to skip channels to avoid congestion. That seems to work very well because I never suddenly got disconnected in my time with the Turret.

Razer also created an additional Razer Turret app—which lets you adjust your mouse sensitivity and keyboard lighting. There are a few great options to choose from, but my favorites are reactive—the style that makes buttons glow once you press them—and Starlight, a very cumbersome setting that makes random buttons glow like twinkling stars.


If you’re passionate about playing Xbox games with a mouse and keyboard, you’ll be pleased to know that Turret performs well, whether you’re playing slow and strategic or running around the map like crazy. The Razer Turret is a beast, and if you’re a console gamer who’s never played games with a mouse and keyboard, you’re jumping right into the big leagues here. We tested this keyboard in high-speed online games like Fortnite, slow strategy games like Warframe. No matter what game we played, the Mouse and keyboard still excelled.


I was a little bit surprised by the previous prices, but you will get what you pay for. The Razer Turret exudes quality from every pore. The keyboard has Razer Green switches, and the Mouse has responsive, durable switches that should look for years. This key switch requires 50g of actuation force, meaning that it is tactile and responsive – a win no matter how you look at it. And, while wireless peripherals are typically out of favor among esports players, we didn’t notice any input lag.


Razer lists only eighteen Xbox One games that support Keyboard and Mouse input.

  • Gears 5
  • Fortnite
  • Warframes
  • Minecraft
  • X-Morph: Defense
  • Vermintide 2
  • Bomber Crew
  • Children of Morta
  • DayZ
  • Deep Rock Galactic
  • Minion Masters
  • Moonlighter
  • Roblox
  • Strange Brigade
  • Vigor
  • War faces
  • Wargroove
  • War Thunder


TheRazer Turret For Xbox One is now available on the Razer website for US$249.99


The Razer Turret is a fantastic keyboard and mouse combination and will be perfect for any Xbox One user looking to take advantage of the new compatibility options. Grab the Razer Turret for Xbox One if you want to enjoy Xbox games with mouse and keyboard control, but make sure the game you want to play is supported first.

If you’re looking for a keyboard and Mouse for your Xbox One, and the price isn’t a major factor, then the Razer Turret is truly one of the best options out there. But, there are cheaper options out there for anyone on a budget – like the Corsair K63 Wireless Mechanical Keyboard and the Lapboard Combo that will get the job done, although not quite comfortably as the Razer.
