    So I'm trying to buy a Razer Blackwidow Tournament Edition Chroma USED so it can cost me less then a brand new one. Searching through eBay I find one that is only $34.00 + $16.00 Shipping. It looks a bit sketchy because when I searched the exact same keyboard on eBay it was 2x the amount this seller was selling it for. The seller also had very good ratings and is also a Top Rated Plus Seller. Is it because its used?

    Hi iBlueey.

    My guess is that it's legit. They are a US-based Top Rated Seller with good feedback score. No one complained about fakes or counterfeits in the neutral/negative feedback comments either. The photos are clear and the item has been tested. It seems like an honest listing to me because they warn about dirt/hair and the missing USB cable. Furthermore, I think if they were into selling fakes they would be selling new products, not used ones.

    Anyways, a new BW TE Chroma can be had for $105 shipped. So I guess $50 total for a used, potentially hairy version isn't too far-fetched.

    Besides, 11 people have already purchased and they have a generous 30 day return policy so you can always send it back if there's a problem.

    I say DO IT!

    Yup, check the S/N and return it if there's a problem. 30 days is a very generous return policy.

    Better hurry though, only 1 left!!!

    They are also selling used BW Ultimate 2014 for $40 shipped.

    I checked the serial number with the warranty status and it was actually a real chroma but they can always use the same serial number. Also, the wording in the description + the back has a GreenTronic sticker??*

    Lol like I said, you can always buy it and return it if it turns out to be counterfeit. eBay has you protected in that case and forces the seller to pay return shipping too. I have over 10 years of eBay experience and if I didn't already have a BW TE Chroma, I would take this offer. Normally, even used Razer peripherals cost more than that. It's a good deal, which is why they were able to sell 13 keyboards in 2 days. In addition, if you read the feedback, you will see that there are satisfied customers who have purchased this exact keyboard (and other Razer products) from loan88814.

    I was looking for Stealth ones but I couldn't find a good deal on one. $50 for this is a dealbreaker if it is actually real

    Thanks man :heart:

    I have a fullsize chroma with the green switches and I have been using a small linear switch keyboard and it is so much quieter but not as precise as I got used to the tactile bump but reguardless they are great keyboards.

    A new BW TE Chroma for 105$ shipped? Wow where can I get that? Il was thinking to buy a BW Ultimate 2016 Stealth from the Web razer website with the razer insider discount which will cost me 110€ (I'm living in Belgium), so I guess I should think about it!

    The seller sent me a message saying:

    "We bought 1000 item from them not 1, Sold more the 100 item so far, if you don't trust it. Please do not buy it from us. recumbent buy direct to Razer site.
    Regards"

    I'm guessing they bought 1000 keyboards from GreenTronicsCycling.
    Hope for the best :D :D :D

    You know razer doesn't sell cheap stuff, should be suspicious if i came across such prices.

    Sorry, I meant for US customers. It seems that everything is more expensive for international buyers!

    Same here. Thanks for the heads up iBlueey! Nice find!

    They are used keyboards though. Not new, not refurbished, just plain and simple pre-owned second-hand merchandise. It makes sense that it's cheaper.
