Razer BlackWidow Ultimate (2014)

 

The Razer BlackWidow Ultimate (2014) gaming keyboard offers a slight competitive edge with new key switches.

New key switches offer faster in-game action. Solid design is unchanged. Audio and USB pass-through connections built in.

Matte finish smudges easily.

Conclusion And that is the big question for anyone considering the Razer BlackWidow Ultimate 2014: Will the new switches positively impact game play? The answer will vary from one gamer to the next, but overall, most people won't see much difference...

Don't get Refurbished

 

Buy new, especially if it's not convenient for you to reach a Newegg warehouse.

Its a good keyboard model. I'm going to buy a new one. Or maybe something a bit quieter. Writing this review on it feels very nice

This 'refurbished' keyboard is more like found by the side of the road. The num-lock button doesn't work, the front panel is heavily scratched and one of the stands on the back is missing. Not to mention signs of heavy use like dust, hair ect. beneath...

nice keyboard

 

would be nice to make the lighting same as the chroma one, not the color but the style, like waving or just when you click the key light

lots of pros, very nice lighting, wish i could do like the chroma one, but that's not enough for a cons, i very ike the sound that it make, very high senstive keys, wirting so much faster than before

no cons, i very appreciate thsi keyboard

Happy Happy Joy Joy

 

This keyboard seems to reward the person that doesn't fully press their keys down all the way. Just listen for the click.

I like the non-gloss body over my 2012 Blackwidow Ultimate(blue back lighting). I was always cleaning off smudges ; not quite as clicky sounding as some mechanical keyboards but not soft and mushy feeling like others, so a good balance ; being...

Two of the keys arrived stuck pushed in. One of them sounded like I broke something when I released it because something was sliding around inside the keyboard afterwards, but the key works fine
