A Recommendation With Reservations

Summary: This keyboard was a replacement for the 2013 version of the Black Widow Ultimate which unfortunately developed a few sticky keys after I accidently spilt a sports drink that splashed up on it. This is a great gaming keyboard in term of functionality and operation. Along with the keyboard, I use a Razer mouse and keypad for my MMO gaming. Obviously, I like Razer hardware products.
Summary: Really digging my mechanical keyboard. I had the chicklet version for a while. Though quiet it didn't quite feel right to type on. This keyboard feels great to type on. I know there are other mechanical keyboards out there but the main reason I got this one in particular was for the backlit green color. I no it's vain but it matches the razor mouse color I have and the GPU light in the case. I call my setup OA. I'd get it again.
Summary: I got this in the mail in just a few days with Amazon Prime, and I've been siting behind it typing ever since! I love this thing. It feels like quality with every switch you hit typing anything from one of the easily programmable macro keys or doing an essay for school. The USB port in the keyboard is a huge plus along with the audio ports. I sometimes go out of my way just to see if I can justify typing a little more with everything I do on my computer now!

Summary: This keyboard makes me feel like I can type much much faster than I was able to before. If feels great and the sounds and click feedback is huge improvement over my silent laptop keyboard strokes. I definitely thing this is a perfect keyboard for my gaming as well as my programming and software development environments. I wish I had actually gotten the one which changes colors, but that's just because I like having fun with aesthetics...

Summary: This keyboard is probably the closest thing to perfection in a mechanical keyboard that you can get, aside from the 2014 MAC edition with Razer's custom keys, replacing the Cherry MX Blues that this keyboard has. It's loud, it's.. relatively normal sized...But, uh, it's most definitely in charge. Yeah. Smooth. Like butter. There's not a single thing I would change on this keyboard, bar none.

Summary: So far so good. Only had it a few hours but I'm digging it. It's night and day between a membrane keyboard. Now, I have zero experience with mechanical keyboards, so this keyboard to me feels pretty good. I cannot say if you're coming from a buckling spring or cherry mx, etc, if you'll like it or not. Suits my needs perfectly. Right now couldn't be happier.
Summary: I started using Razer products when I purchased the TRON mouse and Keyboard. Both items were perfect (although interesting getting used to due to design) About two months ago the mouse began to have some ghosting...and I thought it was time for an upgrade. I did a lot of research and decided to stick with Razer and purchase the BlackWidow and a Death Adder. I can't recommend this keyboard enough. The only negative aspect is the loudness of typing.
Summary: The keyboard works fine and it is comfortable to type and cool! I bought 2013 model, although 2014 model is in the market. The reason is cherry keys seem more reliable than razer's original key manufactured by unknown Chinese company. Also except keys no major differences. Chroma is attractive, but "like new" used 2013 model is around $90. Can you pay additional $90 to have various color backlights?
Summary: I'll be honest, I was skeptical. I bought this thinking this couldn't be it, the mechanical keyboard I was looking for. Boy was I wrong. This thing is amazing. It took me a week to get used to it, but I love it. Big thumbs up to Razer for this one, if you have the extra money I would go all out and purchase this thing.
Summary: I originally bought this keyboard for my boyfriend as a graduation present, but after playing a few games on it, I just had to buy one for myself. The mechanical keys are absolutely beautiful and the macro keys are great. The backlit keys are very helpful as I like to game in the dark. There is not one thing that I can think of that I dislike about this product and this is definitely worth the buy.
