5 out of 5 eggsIts a Good Keyboard

This review is from: Razer BlackWidow Expert Mechanical Gaming 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 Expert Mechanical Gaming 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 Expert Mechanical Gaming 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 Expert Mechanical Gaming 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.

5 out of 5 eggsRazer BlackWidow Mechanical Standard

This review is from: Razer BlackWidow Expert Mechanical Gaming Keyboard

Pros: -Tactile-Clikcy Switch
-Excellent for Typist and/or PC Gamers
-More momentum when typing for typing race
-It's a Mechanical Keyboard
-Fiber Braided Cable
-No Keyboard LED Lit since I don't look at LED when gaming and it's a waste of electricity!
-Less actuation force to reduce fatigue
-Allows you to press 10 Keys simultaneously
-Responsive and accurate
-Cheaper than daskeyboard
-Key switches can last up to 60 million clicks

Cons: -Redundant 5 Macro Keys
-Feels sticky and hard when placing my wrist on mechanical keyboard

Other Thoughts: -Keyboard grip needs to have smooth, glossy matte finish because my hands get sticky when playing more than 3 hours per day.

-5 Macro Keys needs to be removed since most keyboard users don't intentionally use 5 Macro Keys and it's not very useful. Besides, it requires Razer Synapse to enable 5 Macro keys, but some people report that Razer Synapse is having some bug issues and that needs to be addressed immediately, otherwise there'll be compatibility issues!

-Provide Soft-Tactile Switches and consider making (Yellow) Linear Switches in the future for pc gamers and typists.

This review is from: Razer BlackWidow Expert Mechanical Gaming Keyboard

Pros: The mechanical clicks take me back in time.
Every keystroke is brilliant. It is great for MMO for the repeated clicks seem to wear down other keyboard quite quickly. Not the case with this guy.

Cons: NEVER EVER EVER EVER get water on or near this guy. I splashed a bit on the num pad when setting down a water glass too hard. Even after wiping it off things when crazy. Keys stopped working, A key would type P etc. after an hour the whole thing wouldn't work, and the lights wen't off. Left it unplugged for a week plugged it back in and everything is working fine. Id hate to see a lot of water hitting it... If your prone to spills like I am get the protection plan.

4 out of 5 eggsAmazing Keyboard

This review is from: Razer BlackWidow Expert Mechanical Gaming Keyboard

Pros: The button feedback feels amazing.
The clacking sounds good.
The buttons feel good and spaced correctly, at least for my own hands.
The LED's are bright and vibrant

Cons: The LED's tend to burn out fast on the brightest setting.

I don't care very much for the font.

Other Thoughts: I've used the same keyboard for about two years now from 2012. After thousands of hours of gaming and wear and tear my keys are just now starting to give out.

It's an excellent investment if I do say so myself.
