Crappy software ruins the deal

 

Don't fall for the Razer Hype machine. I have had this keyboard for months and it has never worked. The software is crappy, after about 10-15 minutes it would start spamming the enter key constantly. The keyboard itself seems pretty solid but without...

Love it

 

I love this keyboard.... Coming from a Logitech 510, the response is amazing. I love the noise lol. I know thats not a performance perk but it feels good under my fingers. Its also heavy so theres no unwanted sliding. The only downside is the keys are...

Somewhat pricey, but worth it.

 

I have had this keyboard for about a week, and I must say, although I feel like I paid a bit much for a keyboard...it was worth it! This is a mechanical keyboard that is NOT backlit. It uses Cherry MX Blues, which are very clicky and loud. Theblues...

RAZER BlackWidow 2013 RZ03-00391500-R3U1 Black USB Wired Mechanical Gamer Keyboard

 

Over all, a solid keyboard for someone who likes the feel and sound of a mechanical keyboard. Ergonomically is the same as most, with a couple differences, mainly the hotkeys on the left hand side. The only reason I'm giving 4 out of 5 eggs is due to...

1. Mechanical keyboard, nuff said. When you hit a button, you know you hit a button ; 2. Layout is nice and ergonomic, much like gamer keyboards of this type ; 3. The Audio in and Mic in ON the keyboard....yeah, baller! Makes for connecting things...

1. Mechanical keyboard sound. I like it, it's a distinct sound that if you aren't an old school typist or ever used one before, it might get annoying to you. Not a fault of the company, just how a mechanical keyboard is built; be warned if you've never...

Software Blows

 

If they fix the software it could be a decent keyboard. Support contact info is hidden and very hard to find.

Solid keyboard with mechanical keys. Headphone, Mic, and USB on keyboard. Nice feel

Software buggy and makes keyboard unusable. After 10-20 minutes started firing off the return/enter key constantly. Requires you to create a "Cloud" account just to use the software. A little noisy

Great

 

First real keyboard I've ever owned, I could never go back to a normal keyboard. My fingers are in heaven typing on this thing. Seriously give it a shot.

Keys feel amazing ; Keyboard is weighted so it wont move while playing games ; Cool light up Razer logo in the middle

Keys are not back-lit (oh well, its still awesome)

Great Keyboard

 

This concludes my review of the Razer Blackwidow mechanical keyboard. Don't let the cons that I states that don't apply to this model keyboard deter you from buying it. It seems they've updated the model, I sure which I could have bought it after they...

First of all, I want to say that I have an older model of the Razer Blackwidow. I purchased mine about 4 months ago, so I had to look for the model that looks closest to mine ; The keys on this keyboard are nothing short of amazing. Ever since I have...

Now for the cons ; Since my keyboard is a slightly different model than the one I'm reviewing, there will be a few different things here that may not apply to the keyboard I'm posting under ; My keyboard has a gloss finish, a very cheap one at that. If...

Would not recommend

 

Had a Razer mouse while back and had same experience.

None

No Pros due to fact that keyboard never even worked correctly at all. One of the worst driver experiences i've ever had
