RAZER BlackWidow Chroma Mechanical Gaming Keyboard review for Dec 2016

By Peter Chubb - Dec 14, 2016

It’s all very well having a great gaming rig set up, but what’s the point of having it and then opting for a basic keyboard? This is often an accessory that gets overlooked, and so you might want to remember this when going for a new setup. With so much choice out there in terms of finding the ideal mechanical gaming keyboard you can often find yourself being inundated with choice, but Curry’s aims to make things that bit easier for gamers today.

The reason we say this is because the price of the RAZER BlackWidow Chroma Mechanical Gaming Keyboard has been reduced from £149.99 to £99.99, which is a saving of £50. Ok, so we know that this was first designed back in 2010, but there have been several improvements made in that time, and there is no arguing that this keyboard did revolutionise the world of gaming.

What makes this model so good for the gamer is the fact that this keyboard can handle up to 60 million keystrokes, which is a lot, although it needs to be considering gamers give their keyboards a bit of a pounding. The keys do have a very sharp bounce back, and so you know that you each press of the key is tactile and each of them will count, so no fear of any missed inputs.

That’s not all, as this keyboard is fully customisable in terms of colours, as there are 16.8 million colour options, meaning you can customise this keyboard to your particular gaming style. The other bonus feature is that these settings can be saved to the cloud, meaning that if you do make use of another keyboard of this type, then all you need to do is login to the cloud to gain access to your saved settings.

In terms of specs there are Macro keys with anti-ghosting, USB connectivity, is black in colour weighs 2.4 kg and comes with a 2 year manufacturer’s guarantee.
