  1. Hi there, just wondering if anyone knows if and when the Razer orange mechanical switches will be available as an option on the Blackwidow X?

    I hope they are available eventually. I have a Blackwidow X and think it's a great keyboard, I love everything about it ... except the loud clicky keys. I am letting my son use it now, because I'm a die-hard stealth user. hehehe :)

    I'd seriously consider trading up my Blackwidow Chroma Stealth for a Blackwidow X Stealth if they ever made it. I have never once used the macro keys and I like the somewhat smaller profile.

    Been wondering this forever (or at least for a few months now). Various reviews online state that you can actually get it with Orange as it is - and even talk about upcoming MX Blue edition too.

    "The BlackWidow X Chroma is currently only being offered with Razer’s Orange or Green Switch, but Cherry MX variants are close in tow"

    For one I'll never get it for as long as it's full of click-clack sounds.
