    Hi, I'm looking for a new keyboard and are looking at some from Razer.

    I can get the Razer Blackwidow Chroma and the Razer Blackwidow Ultimate 2016 mech, new, to the same price. Witch one do you recomend and why?

    Also, what is the main difference between Chroma and Chroma x?

    DEFINITELY CHROMAS. They are beautiful, utilize some features via lighting, and also have a potential with other chroma devices.

    I have the regular chroma but i would have bought the chroma x if i waited a few months for its release. The chroma x is a toned-down version of the regular chroma (no macro keys, exposed metal top etc.) Check out the product's website to see a chart comparing them :

    If u want to have macro keys, then u should look into getting the regular chroma.

    I'd say the normal BW is more useful, as it has a usb port and aux ports, however the BW X looks more stylish in my opionion.
    So it's up to you what is more important to you

    Well if you like RGB kboard without macros on the side then get the blackwidow x chroma if it's the other way around then get the blackwidow chroma. aside the LEDs, I don't know what is the difference between the chroma and ultimate versions. :big_grin_::big_grin_::big_grin_:

    You don't need the chroma it is just for effect and the BWX doesn't have a plastic exterior and doesn't have macro keys or USB passthroughs

    @Skanin As many have mentioned, it's really comes down to your preferences - I'd say the largest difference is that the Ultimate gives you the option of Classic Cherry MX Blues and is of course not as customizable as keyboards with Chroma lighting.

    The BlackWidow family is pretty extensive, and you can get a quick summary of what each keyboard features here. Hopefully this helps you with your decision!
