Wow

Travis W., Newegg

  • Pros: Was worried at first that it'd not be as "mechanical" as the non-stealth version. But it is even better than I imagined.
  • Cons: none

Razer BlackWidow Mechanical Standard

Danny L., Newegg
1 week ago
  • Summary: -Keyboard grip needs to have smooth, glossy matte finish because my hands get sticky when playing more than 3 hours per day. -5 Macro Keys needs to be removed since most keyboard users don't intentionally use 5 Macro Keys and it's not very useful. Besides, it requires Razer Synapse to enable 5 Macro keys, but some people report that Razer Synapse is having some bug issues and that needs to be addressed immediately, otherwise there'll be compatibility issues!
  • Pros: -Tactile-Clikcy Switch -Excellent for Typist and/or PC Gamers -More momentum when typing for typing race -It's a Mechanical Keyboard -Fiber Braided Cable -No Keyboard LED Lit since I don't look at LED when gaming and it's a waste of electricity! -Less actuation force to reduce fatigue -Allows you to press 10 Keys simultaneously -Responsive and accurate -Cheaper than daskeyboard -Key switches can last up to 60 million clicks
  • Cons: -Redundant 5 Macro Keys -Feels sticky and hard when placing my wrist on mechanical keyboard

Nice all-purpose keyboard

Jim L., Newegg
2 weeks ago
  • Pros: Feels great, nice and clicky and doesn't require too much force to actuate but just enough to prevent from misclicks. Detachable Micro-USB cable is braided and high quality. Velvet carrying case is a nice touch. Very compact, which is perfect for my limited keyboard drawer space. Doesn't look ridiculously gaudy like other gaming peripherals.
  • Cons: Wobbles slightly- the keyboard is not perfectly flat. Also, I wish all of the keys were backlit. Not sure how much money they saved by skimping on this feature... a couple of bucks?

Awesome, but no Linux Support

Jason D., Newegg
2 weeks ago
  • Summary: Without Linux support no one is getting my dollar from here on out.
  • Pros: Just dang awesome. It's durable, it's backlit, it's everything you would expect from a mechanical keyboard. You can't beat the typing experience unless you get a WASD Keyboard. The new in house mechanical keys are nice.
  • Cons: In today's day and age with the rise of Steam OS and Steam Client on Linux, lack of Linux support is no longer a one egg knock. For future proofing your rig and those in the know, do not buy any products from Razer. I highly recommend Roccat due to Linux support. I will be sending my Razer products to my brothers and replacing everything with Roccat and WASD keyboards.

Great keyboard, but loud

Anonymous, Newegg
2 weeks ago
  • Pros: It's awesome. The ability to create custom Macros, as well as the price for such a well-built monitor, is truly amazing. The current price for this is a steal. The tactile feedback is really nice, and I don't have to press hard at all to type quickly, which is always a nice thing. Some other Razer keyboards have issues with keys having to be pressed too hard before registering, which is not present here.
  • Cons: It's loud. I live with other people and we share a workspace, and it can be rather irritating when I'm typing since the keys are rather loud. If I had to do it again, I'd definitely get the Razer Blackwidow Stealth Tournament edition instead, since it's 10 dollars cheaper and is quieter than this keyboard.

could have been better

Eugene K., Newegg

  • Summary: For the price, you will not find better mechanical boards out there. This board is my 7th mech board, and I know my boards.
  • Pros: the price obviously was the selling point for this keyboard. at $60, you just simply can't go wrong. not much changed from 2013, except the actual switches. These razer switch isn't MX Blues, but it isn't that bad. I wish these switches are more clicky and louder like MX Blues.
  • Cons: Bottom rubber stops are uneven and its wobbling. Razer switch suppose to be MX Blue copies, but it rather sounds more like MX Browns.

Awesome

Patrick H., Newegg

  • Summary: I find reasons to type just because this keyboard feels so nice. If you do not need a 10-key, which I do not, this keyboard is perfect. Also, I picked it because only the Razer logo is illuminated and not the entire keyboard. Combine that with the Razer software and I have just been blown away by the quality. My favorite purchase of 2014 (yeah, it's that good).
  • Pros: - Compact - Durable - Quality - Keys
  • Cons: Nothing
