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 BlackWidow Ultimate (2014)

 

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

Matte finish smudges easily.

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

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 terms of design, there is little to say about the BlackWidow Ultimate, as the keyboard has essentially been around for years already. Razer refined it over time, adding one little upgrade after the other, the latest being their own Green switches....

Razer BlackWidow Tournament Edition

 

The Razer BlackWidow Tournament Edition mechanical keyboard is touted as being travel friendly, but the compact build only limits the functionality.

Quality construction with Cherry MX Blue mechanical switches. 10-key anti-ghosting. Detachable USB cable. Includes travel case.

Compact design removes numeric pad.

Razer BlackWidow Ultimate 2013 Elite

 

Mechanical switches provide audio and tactile feedback. Backlit.

Stylized font on keys is hard to read. No backlight customization. Poor shielding for pass-thru ports. Smudge-prone finish.

The Razer BlackWidow Ultimate 2013 Elite is a solid mechanical gaming keyboard, but it has its flaws, like a smudge prone-finish and poorly shielded connections.

Razer BlackWidow Ultimate Battlefield 4 Collectors Edition Keyboard Review

 

For $149.99, the Battlefield 4 collectors edition model of the Razer BlackWidow Ultimate is a great deal for gamers.

Over the past few years of testing various gaming peripherals, i have come to the conclusion that they will help any gamer improve upon his skills. Most people would say otherwise, that a player is determined by his skills not his gear but the...

The Blackwidow sells from 99$ and up, it’s priced this way according to the various features it has. If you want the “lightest” version you can get it for 99$ and the most expensive sells for 140$.

When gaming goes mechanical & quieter – Razer BlackWidow Ultimate Stealth Edition review

Razer BlackWidow Ultimate Keyboard Review

 

Razer's perfection gets better and better with every new product/revision they come out with. This time, it's with the Razer BlackWidow Ultimate keyboard.

No doubt the keyboard is excellent to use and very well designed, the clicking sound might be a turn off for some as well as the fixed parrot green lighting color yet one should not be put off by such little things when getting a mechanical keyboard.
