My Quest For All-Pink Gaming Gear Is Almost At An End

I love PC gaming. I love the color pink. I’ve spent years trying to bring those two loves together for a desktop threesome. Razer’s Quartz line made it happen.

The color pink is soft and cheery, bubbly and welcoming. It’s happy, which is how I want to feel when I sit down for a 10 to 12 hour day of writing, playing and snacking. Last year I bought a relatively cheap pink desktop case. That felt good. During 2017 I’ve built several pink mechanical keyboards. That also felt good. Razer’s Quartz line feels good too, plus the headset has kitty ears. That’s extra good.

The kitty ears are extra, but are they really?

The Quartz line is pretty much the same thing as the gunmetal and white (Mercury) sets released earlier this year, only in a much superior color scheme.

We’ve got the Razer PinkWidow (kidding, they still call it the BlackWidow) Tournament Edition Chroma, a tenkeyless board with Razer’s proprietary switches (mine are clicky greens). It’s so pretty, but I’m going to have to tweak the RGB lighting—maybe red. Pink doesn’t need undulating rainbows.


The BlackWidow comes with a removable wrist rest in a lovely light gray, which complements the pink nicely.

The Razer Lancehead Tournament Edition is ambidextrous, so it looks lovely in either hand. Again we have the light gray accents, a constant throughout the Quartz line.


Note the Lancehead is resting on the Quartz version of the Razer Invictus mouse surface, which is a pink aluminium plate with a light gray mat. The Invictus is the only mouse surface I know that comes inside a plastic storage case tucked inside a bag.


Finally, we have the Kraken Pro V2 headset with optional kitty ears. This expression says it all:


Along with my PC case, I am almost completely pinked out. I just need to paint my monitor frame, reupholster my gaming chair and maybe wallpaper the entire office.


The Quartz line is available at Razer’s website. The pink PC case is available by going to Amazon and searching “Pink PC Case.”
