With features sure to appeal to a variety of gamers, the BlackWidow Ultimate is one of the best all-around gaming keyboards on the market. Mention that you're looking for a gaming keyboard on just about any Internet forum, and the Razer...

The first thing i wanted to check with the BlackWidow Ultimate Mechanical Gaming Keyboard was the 6KRO feature which worked as advertised although i admit it was a bit hard to use 6 keys at the same exact time. However it is more than possible with some...

My personal experience tells me that the choice of keyboard switches is a subjective matter, strongly depending on the taste of the user; therefore, my evaluation of Razer's Green switches is qualitative and based on my subjective preferences. As I...

Taken on its own, the Razer Ultimate BlackWidow is a sturdy, responsive keyboard that will do what you want most out of a peripheral - fade into the periphery, especially if you disable the backlight. And as much as Razer would like you to believe it...

But as it is the Black Widow Ultimate can't compete with the cheaper, more fully-featured and functional Gigabyte keyboard. So while it's a very solid and responsive keyboard, it's not one we could recommend, especially not for well over £100.

The Blackwidow sells from 99$ and up, it’s priced this way according to the various features it has. If you want the “lightest” version you can get it for 99$ and the most expensive sells for 140$. It is not a horrible price, most gaming keyboards...

115$ is what you end up throwing out to get one of these keyboards, a tad higher perhaps than other mechanical keyboards. The Blackwidow is a full size keyboard with excellent features as Macro keys, braided cable, LED keys, etc which turned out to...

No doubt the keyboard is excellent to use and very well designed, the clicking sound might be a turn off for some as well as the fixed parrot green lighting color yet one should not be put off by such little things when getting a mechanical...

The first thing you notice when buying the Razer Black Widow, as with every Razer Product, is the boxing, not just quality box art, and sturdy materials, but quality box-work with very little excess to the box, Razer's packaging department has done an...

Keyboards come in all shapes and sizes - from simple to advanced, basic or with display, or with a sound card or extra keys. The quality of the keys themselves often is of secondary importance. This review will focus on a category of keyboards that has...

Keyboards are often overlooked during the purchase of a new computer; for many there does not appear to be any real difference between any two keyboards outside of wireless technology, backlighting, or extra keys. Those who game heavily or those...

The Razer Blackwidow Ultimate is a high-end keyboard aimed at gaming enthusiasts. The only question we are asking is: do the extra fancy features justify the steep price?...

Performance Razer claims a gaming optimized key matrix in the BlackWidow Ultimate to minimize ghosting. However during our testing, we found that only the WASD and ESDF region is being optimized but not the rest of the keyboard - the implication being...

Razer has recently introduced a ranking system for its gaming peripherals: basic kit is classed as ‘essential’; better kit as ‘expert’; and the finest in fragging accoutrements are ‘elite’. With a name such as BlackWidow Ultimate, you can guess...

It's a steep price to pay (though savvy users will be able to get it for AU$50 cheaper than the RRP), and the noise makes it unsuitable for communal areas, but for those who want one of the best keyboard responses around, the BlackWidow Ultimate...

Positioning itself at the top end of Razer’s long line of quality gaming products, the BlackWidow Ultimate delivers an old-school feel with its “clicky” mechanical keyboard, but also offers many of the features you'd expect from a modern day keyboard,...

The first thing which will be evident to those who try or buy the BlackWidow Ultimate is that this is an incredibly sturdy board. This is partially down to a nice, solid casing but mainly due to the significant weight that the keyboard has. At 1.5kg...
