Among the most iconic gaming-products that Razer has ever made, surely are the Razer Blackwidow keyboard series, and the Razer Deathadder mouse series, and both share the title of the most popular gaming peripherals since the gaming genesis.
The Blackwidow Chroma comes with the well-known Razer mechanical switches, which are more-or-less equal to the Cherry MX Blue ones. They provide good tactile feedback and audible click.
SPECS - Razer™ Mechanical Switches with 50g actuation force - 80 million keystroke life span - Chroma backlighting with 16.8 million customizable color options - Razer Synapse enabled - 10 key roll-over anti-ghosting - Fully programmable keys with on-the-fly macro recording - 5 additional dedicated macro keys - Gaming mode option - Audio-out/mic-in jacks - USB pass-through - 1000Hz Ultrapolling - Braided fiber cable - Approximate size: 475mm/18.72” (Width) x 171mm/6.74” (Height) x 39mm/1.54” (Depth) - Approximate weight: 1500g/3.31lbs
Razer Blackwidow Chroma has the same iconic and simple design of the original Blackwidow, while improved with unlimited Chroma lighting options, obviously.
The Razer green mechanical switches are designed for gaming purposes, and they provide quite nice tactile feedback. However, they are the loudest switches with overly audible click, which means that someone could be very well disturbed by your keyboard, and even your microphone could pick-up some noise while playing.
On the right-side-edge of the Razer Blackwidow Chroma you can find one USB port, along with the ports for your microphone and headphones, which is always a plus.
This near perfect keyboard goes along with the simple, user-friendly software (Razer Synapse), which gives Razer a huge edge over the competition in that regard.
