    I am, in the very near future, going to be obtaining a new Deus Ex Blackwidow Chroma keyboard, and am wondering about the Chroma effects available.

    I know that some different models of the keyboard have different lighting effects available. I also have seen that the Deus Ex edition (and the Overwatch edition) don't have the macro keys that my Blackwidow Chroma Stealth have.

    Does this mean that they are actually modelled on the Blackwidow X, or are they just Blackwidows with no macro keys? Which keyboard version do they take their Chroma effects from?

    I think it may be a Blackwidow X with the front plate on it. The Deus Ex also does not have the audio and USB audio jacks.

    Thanks for that info! I would assume that it is 100% correct, based on who liked your reply. :)

    Oh, with the front plate on then, unlike the regular Blackwidow X Chroma, the LEDs will be about as bright as they are on my BWCS, right?

    New day, new question, new post: so if the Chroma Configurator for Mac is only available with the Blackwidow Chroma, does this mean that even though the name of the item is officially Deus Ex BlackWidow Chroma (no 'X'), will the Chroma Configurator for Mac work with this keyboard? Has this been tested by anybody?

    Do any Mac users own this keyboard or the Overwatch BlackWidow Chroma, and have you tried configuring the Chroma settings?

    Something tells me it may not work, But i am not sure. Under the Chroma workshop page, Some of the programs work on Blackwidow Chromas, But under some it says not licenced versions of the blackwidow (Overwatch Edition, Deus Ex etc..). This makes me think that they may use a different platform for that blackwidow, So it is hard to say.

    Also, for the lighting, I think they would be as bright as a normal Blackwidow with the plate since it should also have the white blackplate with it.
