Razer BlackWidow Ultimate Mechanical PC Gaming Keyboard– Cherry MX Blue (RZ03-00381900-R3U1)
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: This is supposed to be ultimate gaming keyboard, but it is best for programming, or if you type a lot like for instance a screen writer or a novelist. Remember back in the nineties IBM made mechanical keyboards model M? The feel of this one is reminiscent of those. It is hard if not impossible to find those classic IBM mechanical keyboards. If you find one for sale in excellent condition chances are the price tag is around $200 if not more.

Razer BlackWidow is a good alternative.

I am an old school, 16 years in computer industry, lots of programming, lot of typing. I know a good keyboard when I feel one. This one is it. It is heavy MECHANICAL board with real mechanical keys! It scores 5 stars on all accounts that I consider important and those are as follows:

1) It has standard layout with windows and menu keys. It has full and standard right hand keys such as arrows, the insert, delete, home, end, page up and page down as well as complete number pad. The F keys are grouped. If you are a programmer like me no doubt you use shortcuts in your favorite development environment or text editor and heaving the F keys grouped in standard way is important.

2) It has mechanical keys. Yes they are mechanical and they "clutzy". They have that all important resistance and mechanical feel. This is a lost trend in manufacturing keyboards. A responsive set of mechanical keys that provide proper resistance.

3) It is straight and not ergonomic which is another big plus, at least for me. Personally I can't stand those curved atrocities with rubber mats for keys instead of real metal spring.

4) It has lots of LEDs and is letup like Christmas tree, which also nice if you (like a real programmer) write your code in the dead of night. However if you do not like the LEDs you can turn them off. (You might want to keep them off unless you have a hefty power supply.)

5) It does not require any butteries, just plugs in to your USB port. This is also nice for the office setting. I never understood the need for a wireless keyboard for a desktop. Forgive me I am old fashioned.

6) It does not have all those stupid extra keys that most of the modern keyboards have. You know the ones I mean, the extra keys that supposed to start your apps like word, excel, web browser or calc. Who would ever use those anyway? They just clutter the board, completely useless. Unless you start and shut-down you word processor 60 times a minute they are waist of space and only there to charge you more money. Not a problem here.

This keyboard has a function button that switches the mode of your F keys so that you can start / stop music player and adjust the volume. Which is sweet.

7) It looks good. Nice and sleek, would be better if the wrist area would be just a little longer, but oh well. It is a small price to pay for the mechanical keys which are hard to find nowadays.

8) The cable has two USB connections, one is a pass through, the other is the actual keyb

Cons: None what so ever
