1 out of 5 eggsJunk

This review is from: RAZER Blackwidow Ultimate Gaming Elite Mechanical Keyboard

Pros: The lights are beautiful, the mechanical feel and response is great!

Cons: The quality is garbage!! Many keys will stick even when the keyboard is new. Mine is coming up to a year old and I have taken great care of it and more and more the keys stick. Today the #6 key and the #3 key simply stopped working.

They keyboard is very hard to clean and since RAZER does not recommend you removing the key caps ever it makes it even worse! I

Other Thoughts: I am sorry but $150 for this keyboard was too expensive in the first place and to have sticky keys through out the life of the keyboard is crazy!!! and to now 10 month into the keyboard and to have keys simply stop working is pathetic.

Also the lame upside down L key for the R key is not cool at all. I even requested from customer support help in getting a normal R key and they were unable to help me.

Cons: -The only con is the price for it.

2 out of 5 eggsStressful.

This review is from: RAZER Blackwidow Ultimate Gaming Elite Mechanical Keyboard

Pros: -Looks somehwat pleasing to theh eye.
-Adjustable LED brightness.
-Weight keeps it in place.

Cons: -Thhe MAIN issue I have withh this keyboard, as you can probably already tell, it's double tapping issues. Thhe H key double taps, even triple taps almost all of the time. It's only the H key, but a lot of words have H in them. I type fast, and thhis ahppens almost 8/10 times. A sentence that takes me 4 seconds to write, takes 15+ seconds....
-The second issue I have, also withh thhe H key, is that it sometimes doesn't even register, or for some reason thehre will be a delay for thhe letter to actually shohw up. I'll press H, and then E, but a lot of theh time thhe E will come up before the H.
-Anothher small side issue I have it the macro buttons, or extra buttons on the left side of the keyboard. As a gamer, and I'm sure most people are like me, I don't look very muchh at theh keyboard and I use my palm to actually find the edge of thheh keyboard (putting my palm on the CTRL key). That's hohw I find my ahnd placement withhout actually looking at thhe keyboard. With theh extra keys thhere, I almost always lost my place and got messed up in the game I was playing. (WoW). Had to take them off.
-Also, thhe finishh on the keyboard is really prone to oil stains. Any slight bit of oil, from food or whatever, will stain.


Obviously, I've left all the H key double tapping mistakes in thhe review. Thihs is seriously one of thhe most stressfull tihngs I've ever encountered, and I don't get stressed muchh. Thhe switces are WAAY too chheap

Other Thoughts: Also, not really a con or a problem, but thhe F keys (F1-F12) should start directly above the one, but it's above thhe 3 instead. A lot of keyboards do this, but for gamers like me whoh play games like World of Warcraft, it makes it a lot harder to press thhe F keys.


IN OTHHER WORDS, DO NOT BUY THIS KEYBOARD. A LOT OF PEOPLE HAVE THE SAME ISSUE AND IT'S INCREDIBLY STRESSFUL IF YOU TYPE FAST. I DO NOT RECOMMEND WHAT-SO-EVER.

3 out of 5 eggsNot so worth it

This review is from: RAZER Blackwidow Ultimate Gaming Elite Mechanical Keyboard

Pros: -Adjustable LED brightness
-Nice tactile feel

Cons: -Cheap switches
-USB pass-through has been hit or miss

Other Thoughts: Like many others with this keyboard have noticed.. The "60 million" keystroke switches have started giving out, or feeling almost loose in months, 7 in my case.

The up and down arrow keys register twice when tapped.
The left arrow key just outright doesn't register some keystrokes when rapidly and repeatedly pressed. Even if you held it down it will just stop registering the key press.

I will still consider a Blackwidow in the future IF they decide to do away with these switches or vastly improve them.

3 out of 5 eggsCheap

This review is from: RAZER Blackwidow Ultimate Gaming Elite Mechanical Keyboard

Pros: -Nice tactile feel
-Decent backlight
-Quality frame
-Typing is comfortable, aside from the bad switches (see other thoughts)
-Great reaction times during gaming

Cons: -Switches are very cheap (see more in "Other thoughts"
-Razer Synapse is terrible

Other Thoughts: After about 3 months of use, the typing aspect of the keyboard began declining in quality.
When typing a message into a chat, or starting a new paragraph for a document, the Enter key would not register. This would happen 8/10 times while using this keyboard.
However, I am a very rapid typer, often making spelling mistakes, but fixing them just as fast as normal typing.
I believed this to be the reason of the Enter key not registering upon my quick actuation of the switch, and confirmed when the key would register when pressed at a slower pace.

Despite this problem, the keyboard worked fine, but was quickly replaced by my current Logitech G910 Orion Spark. I may never purchase Razer products as long as their low quality persists.

5 out of 5 eggsOver a year and still going strong!

This review is from: RAZER Blackwidow Ultimate Gaming Elite Mechanical Keyboard

Pros: -Sturdy.
-No ghosting.
-Beautifully backlit.
-Built in Game mode.
-Programmable keys.
-So many levels of brightness.
-Clickiness isn't obnoxiously loud.
-USB pass through + audio/mic jacks.
-While gaming keys respond extremely fast.
-Keys make typing and gaming much more enjoyable.
-Very well built and just a solid keyboard overall.

Cons: -Zero.

Other Thoughts: By now I've had this keyboard just about a week over a year. I got it when it first came out. I wasn't really sure if spending so much money on a keyboard would be worth it but in the end it was worth it. My ratio in most of my games went up after getting Blackwidow Ultimate.
I'd definitely recommend this keyboard to any hardcore gamer out there.
