    Hello guys,
    Do you know if there will be soon a new keyboard like BlackWidow Chroma v2 with metal frame?
    Because I would really love the idea of a keyboard with metal frame, macros and orange switches (unfortunately BlackWidow X Chroma has only green switches,no macros and it looks like the keys are smaller).
    Thanks for your help.

    Yeah, I've been saying that for a long time. To me the Blackwidow X is the best looking out of their entire line-up. But I didn't know anything about mechanical switches when I purchased it. So imagine my surprise when my wife started giving me the stink eye at night....
    Me personally, I'd prefer the yellow switches over the oranges because from what I've seen they are much quieter. But I really can't justify buying another keyboard when I've already got two in the closet.

    I would not doubt if we see a Blackwidow X V2 sometime in the future, Since many people have been wanting a blackwidow x based off the Blackwidow V2, With the new switches and all unlike the blackwidow V1.
    I would love to see it as well, And we know Razer does pay attention to those forums time and time again to get ideas for new products that people want, So keep asking and you might get it.
  4. Get some o-rings man. Razer sells some but you can get them super cheap online elsewhere.

    The blackwidow v2 has a metal frame that the switches are on, it just has a plastic top cover. All mechanical keyboards have a metal frame that the switches are on because you can't solder the switches onto plastic, it would melt it.

    Do you know if the blackwidow X is comfortable to use. Cause it is quite raised and it does not come with a worst rest. That has made me thinking it must be uncomfortable to use.

    I would recommend buying the BlackWidow X, the metal keycap set (Just my opinion), and the wrist rest separately.
    The wrist rest is not magnetized on, but it still works - so unless you are planning on sliding your keyboard all over the place while using your computer you should be fine.

    I have X TE. I'd suggest using wrist rest if you're into long-hour use, especially typing. But personally, just for gaming, I dont use wrist rest.
