Razer BlackWidow Ultimate
The Razer BlackWidow Stealth Ultimate edition features individually-backlit keys, via a 5-level lighting system, an anti-ghosting function that allows up to 6 simultaneous key presses, an Audio-Out/Mic-In jack, and USB-pass-through.
Great tactile feedback.
Sturdy build quality.
Backlit LED keys are great.
Macro recording on the fly.
Typing experience is light and springy.
Fully customizable keyboard.
Keyboard's downloadable software has easy to use UI.
Cherry MX Blue mechanical key switches offer one of the most satisfying typing experiences available.
The glossy body is a fingerprint magnet.
Minimum lag time of 6ms is a little disappointing.
No PS/2 connector.
Can't adjust the color of the backlighting like in other Razer models.
Backlighting and a few spare ports don't justify the $40 premium over the non-Ultimate BlackWidow.
Single switch spacebar.
Only one USB passthrough port.
