    • Have you owned both previously/currently?
    • What are some key differences that make you like one over the other?
    • Is there an actually case where you're able to see more dirt on the X and clean it before it piles up like older keyboard models?

    This is more for getting post achievements, but I am generally curious as I've owned the Blackwidow 2013 Ed. as well as the Blackwidow TE before. I'm also thinking about choosing one for a reward :)

    I own BW Chroma V2 (but "large" version, not TE)- and I love it's wrist rest! Tried both keyboards, but BW V2 is more comfortable for me.

    BW X has only 1 model of mechanical switch - Razer Green (clicky), BW Chroma V2 also has Orange (tactile) and Yellow (lineal) - both are quiet.

    X Model has metal body, it looks more solid and clean (it's also easier to clean).

    Currently using the BlackWidow Tournament Edition Chroma V2. Came from using the BlackWidow X Tournament Edition Chroma.

    BlackWidow Tournament Edition Chroma V2
    • Wrist rest - This alone (personally) makes it better than the X TE
    • White backplate - Brighter lights
    • Removable cord - Only useful if you take your keyboard to LANs
    • Plastic top cover - Harder to scratch, doesn't accumulate (so far) smudges, same metal build as the X TE underneath
    • Key switch selection - Honestly though, no point in going mechanical if it won't be Tactile and Clicky

    BlackWidow X Tournament Edition Chroma
    • Exposed top plate - Easier to clean, easier to scratch, easier to see the dirt in low light, light smudges eventually
    • Indicator lights - The TE V2 doesn't have any like the V1
    • Spacebar and FN key lights - The TE V2 doesn't have them for some reason
