Facial palm: Do you own a Razer Deathstalker V2 Pro mechanical keyboard or the keyless model? If so, carefully examine the box for a typo that could net you a $10 discount code for the company store. Razer has apologized for the mistake, something a lot of people don’t care or even notice in the first place.
The box containing the Razer Deathstalker V2 Pro is the usual fare you’ll find on an expensive high-end keyboard, covered in phrases on its laser-etched keys and ultra-long 40-hour battery life. There is also mention of “high performance wireless”. Yes, it says “performance” instead of “performance”.
Razer apologized for the mistake on Twitter, writing that the packaging didn’t meet its own meticulous design standards. Most companies would remove packaging already created and start over, but Razer says such action would not be “consistent with our commitment to sustainability.”

For anyone who might not be happy with the typo on their $249 Razer Deathstalker V2 Pro box, Razer says owners can contact their helpdesk to receive a $10 discount code for the Razer Store. It’s not quite the same as handing over $10, of course, but it’s better than just an apology.
Our Razer Deathstalker V2 Pro review highlights the fast, low-profile optical switches, hard-wearing ABS keycaps and excellent RGB lighting as highlights, while the limited variety of switches, l soft typing experience and that very high price are some of the less appreciated elements. It gets an average rating of 79: some reviewers love the keyboard while others are less impressed. No mention of the typo anywhere, though, which shows how many people pay attention to the packaging when buying a gaming peripheral.
