3 out of 5 eggsOkay, Not Great for the Price

Pros: Great tactile feel, the switches work for what they are (CLICKY BLUE ONES), very noisy but I expected that. Decent weight to it.

Cons: It started to double type letters when I wouldn't hold the key depressed for more than was required for a single press. It was random, re-installing the driver did nothing to alleviate this issue.

Other Thoughts: Razer's products just can't hold up to my Gaming Style. By that I don't mean I rage smash things, however I do tend to play quite a bit, and when I'm not gaming I am usually writing code. So they get used excessively.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing keyboard!

Pros: Had and still using this keyboard for over a year now and it still works like charm. The keys never get that stick feeling and is fast as a you can get with typing or gaming.

Cons: Only con i had with this keyboard is if you're going from a non mechanical to the BlackWidow, get ready for some adjustment. Completely different style.

Other Thoughts: Would recommend 100% to any gamer out there.

5 out of 5 eggsA sturdy keyboard!

Pros: The keys are really responsive and they are reliable

Cons: There are no cons that I can think of. I've owned the BlackWidow Ultimate for about three years now, and there isn't a single flaw! Make sure you take care of it (dust and clean it) every month, at least.

Other Thoughts: The mechanical aspect of the keyboard ensures that your typing will be noisy. I believe that Razer released a noiseless version, so look into that if you have roomates or others around, and if they're easily annoyed!

5 out of 5 eggsVery Good So Far...

Pros: Looks Awesome! Love the lighted keys. I do most of my computer work at night and I like the lights out. Un-lighted keyboards can be hard to see in the dark if the screen is dark, but problem solved with the Black Widows lighted keys.

Cons: Once, my kids accidentally configured a few of the keys to type different letters (eg. the D key actually typed an F). This was very frustrating until I figured out what happened. This doesn't lower the NewEgg rating though as it was not a problem with the keyboard. But I did want to make note of this. To solve, I went into the software for the keyboard and set things back to normal... No Problems!

The keys are a little noisier than I would have liked but not noisy enough for me to want to return it. Used to it now.

Other Thoughts: Love the BLUE glow of this 2012 model. (Just ordered the 2013 model for a new build - Emerald Green looks really good).

I'm not a "real" gamer, so I cannot comment on it's gaming potential, sorry.

1 out of 5 eggsPOC

Pros: Keys are functional

Cons: LEDs G V T are out. What a POC. Razer support does not exist! Synapse software does not work.

Other Thoughts: POC I expect more from $100 keyboard!

At least acknowledgement of a defective product and some resolution compensation?

Manufacturer Response:

1 out of 5 eggsGreat Hardware...Terrible Software

Pros: Excellent hardware, I absolutely love how this keyboard looks and feels.

Cons: Razer Synapse 2.0 software completely ruins the experience.

Since installing the latest version the lights on the keyboard no longer work (driver flaw), and it took some tweaking in the device manager to even get the software to recognize both the keyboard and mouse (Taipan mouse). Incredibly frustrating software that is absolutely necessary if you want to use any of the additional programmable keys.

Other Thoughts: Get the keyboard and avoid installing the Synapse software if you can!

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: This is a highly responsive keyboard with many macro and lighting options. If you like to play FPS games, this is a great keyboard.

Cons: It sounds like a typewriter even on the lightest of keystrokes. I read that in the other reviews, so it wasn't a surprise. This is not a great keyboard for someone who lives in a place with poor sound insulation. Your roommates might think that you're typing out an angry manifesto if you play late at night.

Other Thoughts: My girlfriend spilled a cocktail that left a horrible residue between the keys. After swabbing out most of the gunk with isopropyl alcohol and q-tips it it still works like it's brand new.

4 out of 5 eggslove, love, love. the software.... not so much

Pros: very comfortable to type on.
love the LED back light.
love the braided cord.

Cons: the configuration software that Razer has for this device kinda blows. once in a while it will turn on the setting to turn off the lights when the computer goes to sleep, and every time it does this i cant get them to turn back on without making a whole new profile and redo all my macros.

Other Thoughts: will avoid using a non-mechanical keyboard for the rest of my life.
