  1. Now that there are 2 types of blackwidow which do you prefer?
    I wont say which one is better because i think it's a matter of preference :)
     
  2. I like the metal construction of the BWX even if it isn't so bright~
     
  3. Me too and they keys are exposed, easier to clean and not that bright and not too dim

    I really love the design of the blackwidow X and the price is so much better

    Agreed, I think it is worth the loss of a couple extra keys if you ask me. It looks beautiful and much easier to take care of.

    The loss of keys? I think you're comparing the original and the tournament edition

    He's referring to the macro keys that are present on the Blackwidow but were removed with the Blackwidow X.

    Still hoping for a Cherry MX brown switch variant though.
     
  13. They might release one if they saw a lot of people looking for it

    i do not know. they still claimed that their Razer keys are much better than the MX cherry keys. but for me it is much more a preference over the keys. you all agree with me right?
     
  15. Yeah just like chroma and chromax and
    silent vs clicky

    If I'm not mistaken, the original had a couple macro keys. The new one doesn't.

    I've got the normal Blackwidow Chroma, and I wish I waited for the X to come out
     
  20. Macro is rarely used and banned in competitive titles as far as I know. But for rpg and rts games like wow,etc it would really be helpful
