3 out of 5 eggsFeels great, but wears easily.

This review is from: RAZER Blackwidow Gaming Expert Mechanical Keyboard

Pros: Feels amazing to use.
Clicky noise are satisfying when used and macros work well and reliably.

Cons: Many of the keys became faulty after a couple months of use. If you play a game that requires extreme use of specific keys (WASD games, Osu!, Starcraft, etc) be careful when using. Extreme use of my Z and X keys resulted in them becoming unresponsive after a couple months of use.

Other Thoughts: While the product didn't last long, I was given the option by customer service to send it back for a full refund, but I was unable to send it back due to personal issues.

2 out of 5 eggsnot needed

This review is from: RAZER Blackwidow Gaming Expert Mechanical Keyboard

Pros: it is a well made keyboard

Cons: This keyboard is not worth the money, I have never used a mechanical keyboard before and wanted to try one out. Put simply this is not worth the investment. It is not better than a rubber dome keyboard in any way, this item is not in any way worth the cost. Go to a coffie shop and buy 30 drinks, that would be a better investment than this keyboard.

Other Thoughts: only buy this if you hate your money

4 out of 5 eggsGood keyboard, poor software

This review is from: RAZER Blackwidow Gaming Expert Mechanical Keyboard

Pros: This keyboard, as far as just the keyboard, is great.
Keys are responsive, is solidly built, feels like it will last for quite a while.

Also a pro is the headset/mic connection and USB pass-through on the right hand side of the keyboard. If you use a wireless mouse, this is a perfect spot for the receiver.

Cons: Razers software for configuration is where everything goes downhill.

The software is a pain to install. For me, it constantly froze, crashed, or just sat doing nothing.

Sometimes it would install, then say there were updates, and freeze during updates.

Not only are you tied to the software for configuring macros on the keyboard, but the software also is a constantly online data gathering system.

That is where I see the cons of this system. Not the keyboard itself.

Other Thoughts: The keyboard is very good, if you figure out how to program macros outside of Razers software, or in the end really do not care about macros.

In the end, do your research before buying any device that has software tied to it.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Keyboard

This review is from: RAZER Blackwidow Gaming Expert Mechanical Keyboard

Pros: Good keyboard for gaming. USB, headset and mic ports on the keyboard itself.

Cons: Nosiest keyboard on the planet and the coating on the outside of the keyboard gets dirty quick. Caps lock its hard to tell whether it's on or off at times.

4 out of 5 eggsLove this keyboard

This review is from: RAZER Blackwidow Gaming Expert Mechanical Keyboard

Pros: I love almost everything about this keyboard. I love the feel and sound of the keys. I love the built in ports. I love the extra macro keys.

Cons: My only complaint is the location of the built-in ports. Since they are on the right side of the keyboard, when I have anything plugged in to either of them, the plugs are somewhat in the way of my mouse and I have to wrap the cord around to the other side to be out of the way. I think the ports should have been on the top of the keyboard.

5 out of 5 eggsIts a Good Keyboard

This review is from: RAZER Blackwidow Gaming Expert Mechanical Keyboard

Pros: Has a great feeling for those who want a more tactile experience while typing or playing games. Visually It is very nice looking and can match most desks or paint if you are looking for a specific theme.

Cons: The Green Switches that this keyboard uses can sometimes feel strange when pressing one button continuously. The cheap plastic that is used to make the keyboard can be broken easily. The black color and finish of the keyboard makes it easy to leave finger and palm prints that are visible on the keyboard. The keyboard can also be difficult to clean because of the edges of the keyboard.

Other Thoughts: Personally i love this keyboard, it is easy to use and is comfortable for the Moba, FPS, and RTS Genres. If i could do one thing to improve the keyboard, i would switch out its green switches with Cherry MX Blue Switches because they are much more comfortable for general use, while the green switches can be annoying to type with on occasion.

5 out of 5 eggs5/5

This review is from: RAZER Blackwidow Gaming Expert Mechanical Keyboard

Pros: >Really nice clicky feel when typing.
>Extra 5 programmable keys that can be configured with Razer Synapse.
>Nice glowing Razer logo on the bottom of the keyboard.
>Certain modes you can put the keyboard in so you cannot be disrupted during gaming by accidentally hitting keys.
>Extra USB, mic, and audio jack on the keyboard.

Cons: >Clicking is quite loud. People over Skype could hear it.
>The size of the keyboard takes some getting used to.
>Takes up 2 USB ports in your PC.

Other Thoughts: Have been using this keyboard for about 8 months and I think it is amazing! The clicky feel of it feels really great (even though it is quite loud) and I love that you can plug in you headset and mouse into the keyboard to spare some space in your PC. Love this keyboard!

2 out of 5 eggsIt's okay, first Razer product, not pleased.

This review is from: RAZER Blackwidow Gaming Expert Mechanical Keyboard

Pros: It's mechanical.
Has macros that you can do what you will with.
Clicky, so clicky.
Breathing light is cool and not ridiculous in dark rooms, I like movies and don't have to shut off Key lights every-time I shut my lamp off.

Cons: Have had for 5 mo now, keycaps are shiny and my WASD is pretty much shot, the "S" doesn't hit sometimes, and in some games that matters.
Switches aren't nearly as clicky as Blues, I know they are clones and "designed for gaming" but the shorter distance just makes the last 2.6mm of travel worthless, so I had to put Orings on to rid of some of it.
INCONSISTENT. Some switches are stiffer than others, some wobble a bunch, some don't at all. My Backspace makes a strange springy sound with every press. Strangeness.

Other Thoughts: It's wider than a regular keyboard, bad for me, good for some.

I wish I would have saved a bit more and gotten myself a board with Cherry MXs as I feel these switches are lacking and "gimmicky,"

5 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: RAZER Blackwidow Gaming Expert Mechanical Keyboard

Pros: Yea so I needed a new keyboard because the last one was buggy and only $20. I had some change laying around and I had enough for it. When I got it I was surprised by how heavy the thing was. Which is nice because it makes it feel like it was worth the price. The feel is really nice, I love the mechanical keys and overall it was totally worth the money.

Cons: Kinda noisy but when I have the headphones on it isn't that bad.

Other Thoughts: This keyboard is baller.
