Razer BlackWidow Ultimate Review -- Deadly Accurate
9 July 2014
Summary: The BlackWidow Ultimate's reputation precedes it, but it turns out to be a reputation well-earned. In spite of a few quibbles about macro recording, the peripheral goes above and beyond most other gaming keyboards on the market.
Pros: Sleek and attractive layout; Excellent software; Comfortable keys and wrist rest; Great performance
Summary: Razer is always looking to redefine their products with new features. They’ve taken some of their previous popular products, made some improvements, and produced a better product than what they had.
Summary: Often, they do so make something already existing even better. This is exactly Razer's strategy, entering the market with their own type of switch. But the bar which Cherry have set is very high. Various models with different properties can currently be purchased.
Conclusion: In terms of design, there is little to say about the BlackWidow Ultimate, as the keyboard has essentially been around for years already. Razer refined it over time, adding one little upgrade after the other, the latest being their own Green switches.
Summary: Overall an excellent keyboard but the placement of the Macro keyboard needs to be worked out. Rest of them are minor cons that you could adjust, the rest are more or less depending on your preference. Razer should provide an offline version of its Synapse.
Pros: Razer Green Switches excellent for typing and gaming purposes for those who enjoy the click sound, Matte finish layout, illumination controls, Rubberised coating on the keyboard and keys, ‘On-the-Fly’ Macro Recording, ‘Gamer Mode’ to disable Windows button, Multimedia and Sleep functions, Macro K...
Cons: Missing Details on the packaging: Warranty Period and Rev/Version (2014), Requires more space between the macro and right side keys, Scroll/Num/Caps Lock, Gamer Mode and Macro LED indicator looked ‘washed out’, No offline function in Synapse, Alternate keystrokes are not illuminated, The ‘Switch ...
Excerpt: Razer, long known for its high-end gaming mice, has had sort of a slow start when it comes to gaming keyboards. Its offerings haven’t been bad, but the company hasn’t had a must-have product yet. The BlackWidow is Razer’s first.
Pros: Great key mechanisms, strong build, just the right number of features.
Cons: Attracts fingerprints, noisy, doesnt offer many more features than $50-cheaper basic model.
Excerpt: Razer maintains a distinct sense of style across their product line. Over the past decade and a half, Razer has carved a spot in the peripherals market catering to competitive gamers as well as developing wholly novel products for the gaming market.
