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...

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...

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...

Razer, long known for its high-end gaming mice, has had sort of a slow start when it comes to gaming keyboards. Its offerings haven’t been bad, but the company hasn’t had a must-have product yet. The BlackWidow is Razer’s first. The BlackWidow...
