1 out of 5 eggsBlack Widow Mac

Pros: Clicky and tactile

Cons: About two months out of warranty (of course) the space bar broke without recourse. I am forced to sell it if possible and get a better, less terrible, keyboard. Avoid Razer at all costs. Their mice are terrible too! Just spend the money for something nice, you will thank yourself in the future.

3 out of 5 eggsMeh Keyboard

Pros: -The feel is better than i expected from a mechanical keyboard.
-It seems to type fairly well, and it has a braided cored to keep snags down.
-Keys have a matte/almost sandy finish to them, which is kinda nice.

Cons: -First, the Caps Lock key sucks. It doesnt have the standard cutout near the "A" key so i frequently hit it when trying to type "A" so much so i pulled the thing off.

-Keys are painted, not etched. So paint will ware out over time.

-Gloss Black is highly attractive to fingerprints. More a cosmetic thing, but still annoying.

-Media keys are "FN" keys of the F keys, which is kind of annoying and makes them difficult, if not impossible to hit one handed. No reason for them to not be on separate keys.

-No Software included: Not a major point off, as it works out of the box without it.

Other Thoughts: The Capslock key is the most major annoyance, as it interferes with my typing ability. There is a reason the cutout on that key is a standard, as well as the notches on the F and J keys. If they had put the standard capslock key on this, it would be 4 eggs. Separate media keys would have given it 5.

3 out of 5 eggsGood keyboard, confusing design.

Pros: Good keyboard -- I see it lasting me quite a while.

Cons: I will be comparing this with the pc version of this keyboard.

The key layouts are identical. The embedded keyboard microcontroller (a Freescale S08) and firmware are identical. The PCB, however, is not. It is labeled as a MAC version and I suspect the scan matrix is altered in order for them to use identical firmware for both devices.

This is very upsetting because I thought I would use my skills to transform this keyboard into one fully-featured in windows. That is still possible, but only after considerable effort.

I am unable to use staple features, though, such as on-the-fly macro recording.
My "Insert" key does not work. The media keys do not work. Function keys 13-17 do not work.
The numpad '=' registers as 'clear' and 'clear' registers as numlk.
There is no printscrn or scroll lock (IDK if MACs have ScrLk but the mac kbd has an LED for it!)

If Razer provided me with some design docs, I would be able to reflash the firmware, but why would they do that?

Other Thoughts: Because it would save us all $30 xD Buy the PC version if you have a PC. Still 3/5 for price. The keyboard (any version) is worth $60.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect gaming keyboard

Pros: Solid design. Keys sound loud and great. Macro keys to the left. Very easy to press buttons. cool blue light. works perfectly for my mac. 100% worth the money.

Cons: None so far. Finger prints are easy to see but can wipe away.

Other Thoughts: This keyboard might need some getting used to. The keys are tight, and great for gaming. I play star craft and absolutely love this keyboard. Keys are loud but far from annoying. Fun to type.

2 out of 5 eggssave your money

Pros: mechanical keys (sort of)

Cons: springs in keys are much weaker than the original IBM Model M keyboard. key's feel squishy after a little use and often double strike. general construction is acceptable but no where NEAR the quality of the original. the spacebar seems to double strike the most. this could have been "the" keyboard to own. unfortunately, as with most things today it is apparent that the quality level of this keyboard falls short. i have a model m from 1984 that still types exactly the way it did the day i bought it. this keyboard is relatively new and has begun to fail already. i have very little faith in modern industry. cutting corners seems to be the norm now and that's sad. save your money and pickup a used model m. you will be happy with it for years and years and years. not 2 months.

Other Thoughts: imagine how much of the worlds resources go to producing items designed to fail. companies thrive on repeat business and instead of creating new and innovative products they build products designed to fail in order to keep you coming back for more.

5 out of 5 eggsLast resort!

Pros: I have a Windows 7 machine and I ordered the Mac Version because all of the Blackwidows for PC are sold out. Also all of the other good mechanical keyboards with Cherry MX Blue switches for under $110ish are sold out)

This keyboard SHOULD work on a Windows machine, the PC edition is sold out for the holiday seasons as far as I know, so if you want a quality(supposedly) mechanical keyboard with blue switches just buy the Mac edition and all will be well.

Cons: I will edit my rating if for some reason it does not work.

Other Thoughts: The command keys should function as Alt and the Apple key should function as windows. Any USB keyboard works on any platform now-a-days.

If you can deal with the Command keys and Apple key on there, then you can get yourself a keyboard from newegg without spending $120+ or getting a terrible quality iOne mechanical.

I did want to buy the ADESSO MKB-135B, it is only 68$ on sale right now and a very good keyboard but it is shipping from California and would take too long to get to me, so that left me with the iOne doody, or this. I will take the fruit key and command keys, big whoop!

4 out of 5 eggsA decent mechanical keyboard

Pros: - Mechanical Keys! (Yes, they will be loud)
- Cool macro options
- Very sturdy
- Great response
- 5 macro keys
- Great for gaming

Cons: - Function key for media stuff (volume, playback, etc) not convenient
- Limited macro options
- Pricey!

Other Thoughts: One major con for me, switching from a keyboard with plenty of media keys, is having to hold down the FN key and pressing one of the F# buttons for anything media related. What's worse is that you're not able to use the FN key in a macro you create for the macro buttons, making the macros useless to me.

If you want a razer mechanical keyboard, but don't want to dish out the money for the extreme uber version, this may be the keyboard for you.
