    The difference is actually the clicky noise. Some people hate the clicky sound and chose the Stealth. I'm not sure but the orange switches is 45g while the Green switches is 50g. Not sure how much it makes a difference though. But overall the clicky sound and the feedback is why i fell in love with Razer Blackwidow keyboards.
     
  2. Thanks, I understand now. Seems like these keyboards have quite the following. It's pretty crazy, I haven't seen anything like this with any PC peripherals.
     
  3. Razer focuses on small details, like the design of their packaging, and this reflects on their products, which are all very high quality.

  4. Which ever items you get, you'll get that very thorough "Razer Packaging" Lol

  5. I can only encourage you to go with a Razer Taipan for your mouse.
    Designwise it is a perfect balance between modern design and classical aesthetics. And for my hands (not exceptionally big buta bit "fleshy") it does fit perfect - at least after some hours of gaming, because I was used to that big bulk called MX518.
    I have mine for about 2 years now (that even surprised me writing this), and whilst I think the Logitech MX518 was the best mouse on the market for its time - I don't miss it.
    I am very happy with the durability and precision of my Taipan - we are talking about 10 - 24h a day mostly without a mousepad on a plain plastic-topped desk. And it still feels like it's been the same since the 3rd day I've used it.
    On the first two days I did notice some (very very minor) accelleration issues but either a driver update or pure acclimatization within that very short period fixed that.
    Again, I can only agree to that choice. :)

    When it comes to keyboards.. well I will admit that I am a little bit biased.
    I've had a couple of keyboards under my fingers - mostly Logitech, Razer, Corsair and Roccat and Microsoft.
    Rather then giving you my opinion on all of those, i will tell you, that Razer has not the best keyboards on the market in my opinion. Especially when it comes to price/performance.
    I can however reccomend a Corsair K70 or a K95 aswell as the Roccat MK Pro (or a Roccat Isku FX / Logitech G510 if you do not want a mechanical one for some reason).
    All of those feature Cerry MX Switches instead of Razers - wich to me feel a tiny bit.. is just better even an arguement? - though almost exactly the same. Razer triggers a little bit earlier. But you already found a keyboard you like as I see now. ;o

  6. Wow, thanks for such a detailed overview. Like you said, talking to some people on here made me look around more and I think Corsair K65 RGB is the keyboard I want. Talking to you has me convinced that Taipan might just do the trick in the mouse department. I've been a big fan of Logitech gaming mice, but I don't really like their current lineup. I like Taipan's simple layout and the fact that it doesn't have too many buttons. Thanks for your help again!

    Razer offers the same performance as any high level gaming computer (desktop or laptop) but in a thin and surprisingly light laptop with a sleek HD display for a reasonable price.

    Customer service is top notch. You can't go wrong with any of the keyboards.

    I have bought many Razer Products over the years and other than their ascetics the thing that has stood out to me the most has been their customer service. I have had minor problems with my Razer software in the past and have recieved ample help in order to fix those problems. Everyone I have ever dealt with over the phone or through email has been very professional. I feel that when purchasing a Razer product you not only recieve a high grade gaming peripheral, but piece of mind.

  12. I think that the products are really well made, with great materials. I can say that they are confortable even for long term gaming session.
    And as the slogan says they are made by gamers wich knows what we like and need to play better.

    Currently I suggest the Razer Blackwidow. Other people would be against my decision, but the click/clack of the keyboard is the most satisfying of sounds. I would not recommend any other headset other than Razer Kraken 7.1 because the microphone quality is phenomenal. I love Razer to death, but in all honesty I would purchase a regular mousepad because of the obvious reason that Razer can, at times, be too expensive. For a mouse obviously the well known DeathAdder, although I did seem to come across hitting the numbers with the side of my thumb on accident once in a while.

    Hope this helps. I really haven't ever considered anything else. :)

    Razer originally used to have all blue leds.. So you could always consider buying Razer classic devices.. Also as some others have probably said, Razer Chroma is cool, cuz you can always change up your color scheme. I wouldn't know how to convince someone to switch to Razer, but I would say that for the most part, you can find other quality computer gear for cheaper. Razer has a certain look, its a style, you either like it or you don't. I don't buy Razer because it is the highest quality out there, I buy it because I like how it looks. 'Course if it was marginally bad quality, then I wouldn't buy it at all. I like to think of Razer as the Apple of the open source world. They sell premium beautiful products.

    While I do not use a razer keyboard, I have used them in the past and they are pretty good, they are miles ahead of your average keyboard.

    Personally I love logitech mice over razer, but keyboard I would choose Razer, Das or Logitech.

    I cant give up my logitech g700 for anything, before that a g5. Logitech's warranty is outstanding. I've gotten a new mouse 3 years out of replacement where as razer only has a 1 year warranty and no real option to replace for a small fee.

    So I would keep the mouse and get the keyboard you want. Headset Im astro all the way so cant make a razer recommendation.

    I work in an independent games shop, so I get to try all the latest products like Corsair/RoG/ASUS/Saitek etc and I can say with 100% certainty that I don't think I'll ever go with another brand again. I own the Deathadder 2013 mouse, Kraken 7.1 headphones and the Deathstalker Expert keyboard (thinking of upgrading to the Ultimate though). I find each of these to be the best in their class.

  19. Good construction in both my keyboard and mouse. I don't see why not to get a Razer product.

    I dont really like the clicking noise from normal mech keyboards so I got the stealth and have been loving it.
