    Well there are lots of similar posts for recommendations of keyboards where you could check out. I'm sure theres going to be a majority of choice for blackwidow.

    thanks man
  4. It depends do you record for youtube because then you should get the stealth but I would say the best overall would be the blackwidow. If there are certain requests you have just hmu.

    If you like membrane keyboard >> Deathstalker
    If you like mechanical keyboard >> Blackwidow

    If you just only wan't the keyboard, low budget and don't care the light, just choose the normal version. Or else choose Ultimate or Chroma version.
    *For Blackwidow it has green and orange switches, green switches have clickly tactile feedback but orange switch won't.

    Also be wary that the Blackwidow has many different models.

    Two choices for switches: Green or Orange.
    Green ones click really loudly while orange is silent but has similar tactile feedback as the green switches.

    Blackwidows have different model range and can be categorised by two types. The Blackwidow and the Blackwidow X. The regular Blackwidows are made out of plastic and have great lighting effects since the insides improve the lighting effects. The Blackwidow X which is the latest line, is made out of aluminium, and the keys sit right on top of the aluminium board. The X model however lacks the macro buttons on the side and does not have great lighting unlike regular black widows. Another noteworthy thing to note is the different font that's used in the X keyboards which look a lot less flashy.

    If you don't care about RGB lighting, any non RGB Blackwidow will do. Blackwidow Chroma and Blackwidow X Chroma has RGB lighting.

    The blackwidows has different form factors as well. The regular full-sized ones or the Tournament Edition ones where Razer shaved the numpads off for compact carrying size, simplicity and more space for your right hand to swoop around while playing games.

    The rest is up to you ;) I highly recommend Blackwidows since mechanical keyboards are proven to have better feel and performance than membrane keyboards, but will definitely not come cheap.

    I have a Razer Blackwidow X Chroma and highly highly Highly recommend it if you have the money. It's so worth it. Although if you want macros just get the Blackwidow Chroma but I don't need extra macros personally.

    If you are to record things then get a Blackwidow Stealth or a Deathstalker but if you don't record then go for a Blackwidow clicky. I have a Blackwidow Chroma and I love it the sound of the keys is a must have for me.

    i am still using a logitech in my office. I hope to change to blackwidow x. Whats holding me back is the lack of multimedia keys... I am using a blackwidow chroma at home.

    The Razer Blackwidow is super awesome and good. You should consider to buy one.

    As pretty much everyone on here is saying, I agree Blackwidow. I also highly recommend that you get a chroma variant especially if you're playing Overwatch. When chroma first came out it seemed like kind of a novelty imo, but I still loved it, now with the chroma integration in Overwatch, to me it is now a necessity.

    if you have money to spare. go buy the Blackwidow X chroma. if you are on tight budget. i would like to recommend the Blackwidow X ultimate with MX cherry keys a lot cheaper over the other blackwidow ultimate with razer switch

    Totally agree... not sure why the big price range between the chroma and non-chroma edition. After all, I am sure they are the same LEDs, just pre-fused to output only single color...

    I have a Deathstalker Chroma witch is good for the price, And if you don't care about lighting as much you could just get a regular Blackwidow or Deathstalker. They are both very good keyboards.

    Hmm.... but one is chicklet and the other is mechanical. The buyer first has to ask him/herself what kind of keyboard they would like to have, or feel comfortable to have.

    I personally find the Blackwidow very nice. Which one to chose depends on your preference of switches and chroma.

    IMO Chroma is just loads of fun to play with but there are those that seem to prefer cherry mx switches over razer switches.

    If you can't tell the difference or dont care 10000% recommend BW chroma.
