Razer BlackWidow Ultimate 2016 Edition review: The small improvements that matter

 

The Razer BlackWidow Ultimate 2016 Edition is the epitome of an incremental upgrade—and that's absolutely fine. Take the totally competent keyboard we saw in 2014, make a couple of smart tweaks, and put it back on the market.

No more macro keys ; Gaming-friendly switches ; Professional-looking design

I'd still rather have Cherry Blues ; Stuck with Razer's standard black-and-green scheme

Razer's 2016 BlackWidow Ultimate offers minor changes over its 2014 predecessor, but it's still a solid choice and all-around improvement.

Razer BlackWidow Ultimate 2016 Review

 

A keyboard with a set of bright, blinking green lights on it isn't generally the first thing you think of when you think top-quality hardware. With Razer and the BlackWidow Ultimate 2016 edition keyboard, you get the unlikely combination of high-end...

Razer BlackWidow Ultimate 2016 — One Color, Many Advantages

 

The BlackWidow Ultimate 2016 is not terribly different from the models that preceded it, for better or for worse. The mechanical keys are still pretty good, the design is still fairly attractive and it offers a significant price break over similar RGB...

Smart design ; Comfortable keys ; Reasonable price ; Good software

Nothing new or innovative ; Razer switches could be better

The Razer BlackWidow Ultimate 2016 is an impressive, reasonably priced keyboard with a comfortable configuration and helpful software.

Razer BlackWidow Ultimate 2016 Edition Review and Ratings

 

The 2016 BlackWidow is well-built and has a great keyfeel, but buy it for the key switches and Razer's software, not the wild lighting presets.

Top-notch build quality ; Highly adjustable lighting ; Reasonably priced

Preset lighting effects are more blingy than practical ; Ports inconveniently located ; Volume adjustment is a key combination

Though there's a lot to like about the new BlackWidow Ultimate, just know that you might not want to use its onboard ports, and it's not the best choice for those who do lots of music or video watching on their PCs, due to the Fn-key combinations for...

Razer Black Widow Ultimate 2016 Edition Review

 

The Razer Black Widow has become very popular over the years, often being touted as one of the finest gaming keyboards around. Today, we are looking at the brand new 2016 edition, using Razer's own high specification mechanical switches – could this be...

Razer’s mechanical switches are excellent.

This is the keyboard that ya gotta have!

 

I purchased this for my son and he loves it. It lights up at the stroke of every key. My son loves it that you can configure it do many things. Study and lights, but well built. Great purchase for Computer Gamers!

No mistaking a quality keyboard

 

While I do game, I bought this keyboard primarily for typing and it does not disappoint. There is no doubt when a keystroke registers and each stroke is crisp and clean. It also has a combined audio/mic cable run which is handy and the keyboard can...

Very clicky for that kind

 

Great keys feel great I'd love the chroma edition too if I had it

Great Gaming Keyboard

 

Mechanics of the keyboard are excellent. Good feedback. I had no problems with downloading Razer Synapse and linking my keyboard with it. Though it is no Chroma, where you can change the colors of the keys, but the green itself is nice.

Garbage Keyboard

 

Bought this keyboard and on the first day the space bar doesn't work.. Never buying a Razer Product EVER again.
