Razer BlackWidow Chroma Review


Of the three Razer Chroma devices we've reviewed this week, the BlackWidow gaming keyboard is by far the most complex. In color, anyway - instead of just a couple of different ways to display color, this keyboard works with a wide variety of color...

In the end, this is clearly the keyboard to have if you’re serious about gaming. Whether or not you find the colors appealing or necessary is up to you entirely – if you’re a professional, the colors aren’t going to make a big enough difference on your...

Razer Blackwidow Chroma review: Mechanical keyboard with great gaming features


In this Razer Blackwidow Chroma review you can read all about a mechanical keyboard with a lot going for it. If you love a clicky keyboard, keep reading.

Quality mechanical keyboard with great action, clicky or less-clicky options, and good weight. Chroma lighting and Razer Synapse customization are great tools, with game specific lighting as a particularly cool option.

This keyboard is fantasic!


I like the feel of Razer's green switches. It's fun to type on them and to use the reactive feature while typing. You can even customize each individual switch's lighting

Such a great keyboard!


Absolutely love this keyboard. I've had a few over the years and this is definitely the best. I love how clicky the keys are and the cycling color patterns are a really nice touch. Very responsive and great for gaming. I play a lot of Marvel Heroes on...

Exactly as expected


Keyboard is exactly as expected. Keys are extremely loud - like MX Blues. Love 'em.

My son loves it


This is a really nice keyboard. You can change the lights in so many ways and the keys are really loud when you hit them. My son said that was a big plus and the reason he wanted it more then the others.
