Product Overview Razer BlackWidow Chroma - Feel The Difference

The Razer BlackWidow mechanical gaming keyboard was first launched in 2010 and quickly became the most popular and highest selling gaming keyboard worldwide, making its mark as the primary choice for eSports athletes. Four years later, the Razer™ Mechanical Switch was introduced, giving the Razer BlackWidow an even greater advantage with the world's first mechanical switch designed from the ground up specifically for gaming. This enabled gamers to take their skill to the next level with more speed and precision than ever before. By redefining the limits of performance, this elite mechanical gaming keyboard left the competition in the dust, even faster than before.

Now with Chroma customizable backlighting, this gaming icon is raising the bar once again by introducing individually controlled multi-color backlit keys that allow for extreme customization. Bearing the distinct Razer BlackWidow design, the Razer BlackWidow Chroma gives you the unbridled freedom to truly express yourself, not just with an impressive spectrum of colors but with personalized lighting controls as well.

All-new Razer™ Mechanical Switches
Designed from the ground up specifically for gaming, the all-new Razer Mechanical Switches have an optimized set of actuation and reset points that improve your gaming performance by giving you speed and responsiveness like never before. Engineered to have an optimized tactile feel, these keys help you react faster and with more precision during critical game situations.

Greater durability
No matter how intense your gaming marathons get, each Razer Mechanical Switch is engineered to withstand up to 60 million keystrokes, so you'll enjoy the Razer advantage for longer.

Chroma backlighting with 16.8 million customizable color options
The Razer BlackWidow Chroma features individually programmable backlit keys with 16.8 million color options, all easily set through Razer Synapse.

Razer Blackwidow Chroma Mechanical Keyboard Razer Switch Tactile Feel Reactive Key Press 16.8M Col LED is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A superb gaming keyboard Takes a while to become familiar with all the features and then you have to be quite severe with yourself to stop playing with it and get back to gaming. Seriously though, I haven't had it all that long but it can't fault it - apart from the price, but we all want things cheaper don't we.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Keyboard Razer's Blackwidow Chroma is their ultimate gaming keyboard. It's made of plastic, however has a nice weight to it and feels a solid construction, with no creaks or bends. It uses Razer's own mechanical switches, which have an actuation force of around 40-50g, but feel brilliant to type on. They're very responsive with a nice click. The main feature of this keyboard is undoubtedly the back-lighting. Every colour of the spectrum is available and can be changed through their very easy Synapse software with the click of a button. The price tag is quite hefty, but if you're a gamer and love anything RGB, then this is for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely amazing Been using the keyboard since Christmas and can't be any more happy with it. Solid build Quality and ease-of-use and setting up mean I would. recommend this product. The only downside is the software is a little restrictive and some of the lighting is available but otherwise very good keyboard.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sinply amazing such a upgrade from the Blackwidow 2013 Having previously owned the Blackwidow 2013 edition the Chroma to me is an amazing upgrade. I love everything about it and the lights just make it better. The keys are a lot better to press and dont seem as loud as the 2013 edition.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic product, better service. Tried buying one of these from Razer themselves, after 4 weeks of radio silence, I contacted them only to find it would be a further 4 weeks before they could dispatch. Cancelled and ordered from scan at lunch time, next morning it was waiting for me when I got into work. Fantastic service, (as usual) very happy! Keyboard is awesome too, girlfriend has been using it to play dragon age 3 since it came out and highly reccomends. I use the corsair k70 rgb myself, but I have to admit this is a very nice keyboard, the razer lighting software is WAY easier to use.

Questions & Answers

What key switches does this use?

I know that the blackwidow keyboards use razers own-brand switches but does this use their orange (silent) or green (clicky) switches (which ones do you stock?)
Asked by: JTDSX
The Blackwidow Chroma uses their green clicky keys.
