Razer BlackWidow Ultimate Review

 

Great key mechanisms, strong build, just the right number of features

Attracts fingerprints, noisy, doesn’t offer many more features than $50-cheaper basic model

Razer, long known for its high-end gaming mice, has had sort of a slow start when it comes to gaming keyboards. Its offerings haven’t been bad, but the company hasn’t had a must-have product yet. The BlackWidow is Razer’s first.

​​Razer Blade review (2014): a 'no-compromise' premium gaming laptop

 

The newest Razer Blade is the company's best laptop yet, but it trades epic battery life for an exceptional display.

Fast and powerful ; Great 3,200 x 1,800 display ; Slim, compact and attractive

Expensive ; Screen resolution can undercut performance ; Shorter battery life than the 2013 model

Razer CEO Min-Liang Tan describes the 2014 Razer Blade as a "no-compromise" gaming laptop, and that's almost accurate. Between the machine's screaming graphics performance, its thin chassis and that new QHD+ touchscreen, I was hard-pressed to find a...

Razer BlackWidow Ultimate Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review

 

Several months ago, we had a quick look at the BlackWidow Ultimate from Razer, a company very well known for their focus on gaming-related products. A few weeks ago, Razer announced that they have developed their own all-new mechanical switches,...

In summary, the BlackWidow Ultimate is a very good product that, in our opinion, has its marketing focused on the wrong direction. The improvement that the Green switches offer hardly is measurable, let alone significant. However, if you actually take...

Razer Black Widow Ultimate

 

The Razer Black Widow Ultimate keyboard provides users with a light and springy typing experience, but personal taste may set in when considering the clicky keys.

Typing experience is light and springy. Backlighting. Fully customizable keyboard. Macro editing. Keyboard's downloadable software has easy to use UI

Can't adjust the color of the backlighting like in other Razer models. Glossy frame attracts smudges

Razer BlackWidow Ultimate Mechanical Gaming Keyboard review: Razer BlackWidow Ultimate Mechanical Gaming Keyboard

 

To a certain extent Razer has made its own life difficult with the BlackWidow Ultimate. This $125 mechanical keyboard offers an impressively responsive typing experience, but we don't find its backlighting or spare USB jack and audio ports enough to...

Cherry MX Blue mechanical-key switches offer one of the most satisfying typing experiences available; backlighting helps you game in the dark; on-the-fly macro recording; intuitive driver software.

Backlighting and a few spare ports don't justify the $40 premium over the non-Ultimate BlackWidow.

At $125, the Razer BlackWidow Ultimate is a competitively priced mechanical gaming keyboard in its range. We just wish Razer had done more to set this "Ultimate" edition apart from Razer's more affordable standard BlackWidow.

Razer Blade (2014) Review and Ratings

 

Though it's nice to see that Razer was listening to criticism of last year's Razer Blade for not having full HD resolution, the 3,200x1,800 display of this year's update feels like overcompensating, since it's hard to get playable frame rates at such...

3,200x1,800 touch screen impressive, at least on paper ; Good looks ; Sturdy construction

Graphics performance comes up short ; Runs hot and loud ; Not inexpensive

Considering its slim profile and relatively light weight, the Blade finished near the front in our battery rundown test (playing a video loop at 50 percent brightness and 100 percent volume), showing four and a quarter hours of stamina.

Razer Blackwidow Ultimate

 

The BlackWidow Ultimate is a unique keyboard that provides a bit of subtle satisfaction with its clunky mechanical keys

A pricey but competent gaming keyboard that's built like a tank and packs tons of features.

Razer Black Widow Ultimate 2014

 

The Razer Black Widow Ultimate is a sleek-looking keyboard. Find out how it compares to other gaming keyboards in our full review.

Powerful customization and a solid feature set make this keyboard attractive

This keyboard is limited to 6KRO and only comes with Razer Green switches

The Razer Black Widow Ultimate is a powerful and compelling gaming keyboard with a couple small shortcomings.

Razer BlackWidow Ultimate review

 

Razer's new switches are a dampener, not a silencer, on keyboard clack

Responsive keys minimize mis-presses ; Substantial construction and feel ; Less noisy keystrokes

Lacks resounding blue-switch feel ; MMO gamers may want more macro keys

Taken on its own, the Razer Ultimate BlackWidow is a sturdy, responsive keyboard that will do what you want most out of a peripheral - fade into the periphery, especially if you disable the backlight. And as much as Razer would like you to believe it...

Razer BlackWidow Ultimate review

 

Paying a premium for a keyboard is rare most of the time when you are assembling a PC, but once in a while a keyboard with the distinctive clickety-click sound comes along and is almost as expensive as a decent graphic card. One such mechanical...

Priced at £74, the Razer Blackwidow Ultimate is, according to us, asking for too much moolah. In fact, if you do not want any of the fancy features like the backlighting, the macro keys or the USB port then you can go ahead and buy the standard...
