    I am going to improve my setup this coming Christmas and I will have a budget of under 200 pounds (yes it is very low for a gamer).
    I thought of getting the razer blackwidow chroma on amazon because it is at a great price but the thing that bothers me is if it is kalih or greetech. My friend I think has kalih switches and he hasn't experienced any problems. But I hear greetech is better at controlling quality than kalih. If you know the amazon UK store has greetech switches please do reply

    BTW I don't know if it is kalih or kailh

    I had a conversation with a moderator @kajira before, and from what she told me all Razer switches are made in house now. So maybe you could check when those Amazon keyboards were manufactured to determine which ones they are? Or better yet, wait until Razer has a sale and get the superior in house switches.

    Hello, thanks for replying and did you just say all razer switches are made in house so no companies like greetech helping?

    It's their own brand of keys. Very good though

    From what I understand, the first wave of the Blackwidow chroma keyboards used switches made by third party companies. The current wave of boards use Razer's proprietary switch, improved in every way over the 3rd party switches formerly used.
    Agree. Totally.

    Thanks I have asked the question on amazon but have not had a reply yet.
    Okay thank you very much

    I thought of buying the razer blackwidow chroma and if it does come with razer kailh switch what would you advise to do? Should I keep it or return and look for another place?

    Well, they're all Razer products so your bound to be happy with which ever board you pick. I guess the main factor is if you're willing to kick in the little extra for the latest switches.

    Personally, I'd pick one of the newest keyboard models that is guaranteed to have the newest Razer specific switch and not one of the older models made by the other companies, but that's just me. :)
