Accessibility Angle:

Disabilities impact each of us differently and experiencing gaming products firsthand allows us to understand whether or not the technology is accessible to us. Holding, looking, and listening to the technology gives us a hands on understanding of whether or not the device is compatible with our disabilities before we spend one or two thousand dollars. Razer is a well-known gaming brand often used in gaming tournaments that is now available for all gamers to experience in person for an informative buying decision.
