Its a mechanical Keyboard

ejeeva1, Ebay
2 weeks ago
  • Summary: If you get irritated by the sound of clicking, this will drive you nuts. It was so loud that I was able to hear it with my headphones on with music full blast. I can't stand the noise so I got rid of it the same day I got it.

Keys not responding after a few months

Evelyn H., Newegg
10 June 2015
  • Summary: I should have stayed with Logitech.
  • Pros: Mechanical click, responsive when working.
  • Cons: W key stopped working after a few month. My $10 keyboard works for more than 4 years. This Razer Tournament Edition 2014 stopped working after a few months? I cannot believe this.

Unresponsive Keys

Robert G., Newegg
8 February 2015
  • Summary: I would like some support on this, but I doubt much help will come to me. I like the keyboard overall, but it is very irritating when a key that is used a lot of the time doesn't work all the time.
  • Pros: Compact Works good with games Most letters work Pseudo cherry mx keys feel/sound good
  • Cons: My 'O' key is responsive only about 75% of the time, and when it is responsive, about 25% of the time it will register multiple keyboard clicks in a single click. Any other given keys will sometimes not register a click about once a day. When I press on the 'O' key hard enough, I can get it to be...

Decent keyboard for the $

Anonymous, Newegg
31 December 2014
  • Summary: For the money its not a bad keyboard, but I would definitely look into something else if you can afford it, like the new corsair keyboards, or even the older corsair k65 model which should be available for under 70 or 80 bucks.
  • Pros: The keyboard follows the same good production standardization that you would find with other razer products. Comes with a sleeve for carrying so that nothing will get into the keyboard while in a bag etc. Space bar is quite stable so it doesn't produce any kind of rattling when lightly tapped etc...
  • Cons: Being the version with green razer switches, it has more of a tactile feedback for the keys, similar to that of mx blues. Compared to the older blackwidow, the key switches seem a bit stiffer than 50g, which for me personally isn't favorable. If you can handle the stiffness I wouldn't worry about...

Days of waiting for key cap.

Leslie V., Newegg
18 December 2014
  • Pros: It is a mechanical keyboard. It is a smaller footprint. It is black. Great packaging. They keycaps that are correct have nice fonts.
  • Cons: Not the worst issue, but very annoying. I received the keyboard in quick fashion, as most of my Newegg purchases seem to do. The keyboard has two "x" keycaps and no "c" keycap. A few of the other keycaps are installed incorrectly. It is odd that such a well packaged product has so many flaws. I s...

Inconsistent Switches

Benjamin K., Newegg
25 November 2014
  • Summary: Good keyboard for the money if you're lucky enough to get one with good switches. It appears that Razer doesn't test all their switches like Cherry does. It shows. Too much of a pain for RMA. What am I supposed to do, not type anything for month?
  • Pros: Cheap mechanical keyboard Compact Detachable, braid cable with Gold-plated connectors
  • Cons: I found a switch or two that don't *click* (feels bad) Feels somewhat chintzy compared to other mechanical keyboards

  • Summary: mechanical gaming keyboard hmnn, really it seems like only a marketing ploy. back in the 90s keyboards were like these and they are simply called keyboards. they are even harder and sturdier to break. now? these keyboards gotten weaker and weaker.
  • Pros: -nice solid weight, it wont move when i play hardcore., -the keys when pressed have nice touch (i think its better than the logitech 710+, -ok design
  • Cons: -a bit pricey for me but i have to buy it., -keys are bit small, i end up messing when i type. i can usually go 25WPM with 99% accuracy but with this keyboard i messed it up. anyway i bought this for gaming not typing so....

Better than Tournament Edition

Jay L., Newegg
26 May 2013
  • Summary: I've just switched to this keyboard today after using (and dealing with numerous problems) relating to the Tournament Edition for over a month. I'm glad I bought this keyboard as a backup since I'm already having to need it.
  • Pros: -"Rubberized" finish -Not as gimmicky as the glossy Razer keyboards -Tactile feedback with MX Blues (might be nuisance for some) -Non-detachable USB cable (I'll explain why)
  • Cons: USB pass-through shows some problems.

Solid Gaming Keyboard - not so much for typists

James G., Newegg
12 May 2013
  • Summary: If you the sole user of you computer, and you game a lot, don't shy away from this keyboard, but if you are looking for a keyboard for a family/community computer which many different people will be using for actual typing (reports, letters, homework etc.
  • Pros: The keyboard worked right out of the box, software installed correctly, works well with my razor mouse (death adder).
  • Cons: The key layout does not work well for the casual user. My wife, adult daughter and teen son all have problems just typing with it. the Caps key and the close but not quite right layout makes the typist miss frequently. For gaming, it's spot on, especially with the razor game booster software and ...

update

Anonymous, Newegg
30 March 2013
  • Pros: Typing is really smooth Good weight of keyboard cord is braided and solid
  • Cons: KEY STICKS/DOESN'T WORK The 0 key rarely works (i just pressed 0 about 8 times to get it to go) This is a problem for me when writing some code now and then, since the parenthesis key ")" also is affected by this. I expected more for a 100$ keyboard honestly, pretty disappointing..
