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 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 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 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.

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

 

Best mechanical gaming keyboard at the moment. Doesn't sound as loud as the original and has every feature you need on a gaming keyboard (macro keys, etc)

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 BlackWidow Ultimate Stealth Edition - Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review

 

The BlackWidow Ultimate Stealth Edition keyboard from RAZER comes with the silent Cherry MX Brown switches, has a matte finish, and all key functions can be reassigned (an exception would be the "Fn" key); also, the keyboard features an anti-ghosting...
