    Hey guys,
    I'm going to buy BW V2 (green), but I'm a little bit afraid of clicky keys (too loud). Especially I mean that my microphone would catch the sound of typing keyboard during conversation (Teamspeak, skype). Are my fears right?

    With the green switch your microphone will definatly pick up the noise, if it is any bit close to you. You could get O Rings that would help dampen the noise a bit, Or just get one of the other Orange or Yellow Keys. You can learn about all the key switches here. I would suggest either the orange or yellow switch for you, based on if you want something with a tactile feel or not.

    What is it? How much does it cost? Where can I find it?

    Assuming you are talking about the O-Rings, you can get official Razer O-Rings for the blackwidow here, But you can also find them cheaper on Amazon and such.
    If you are talking about the other switch keyboards, Up here in Canada they don't seem to be sold at any retail stores around me (Bestbuy and Staples), Not sure if you can get them on Amazon or anywhere local where you live if you were going to get it local at a retail store.
    You can get them off of Razers official site too. They also tend to have good promos on too so keep an eye out, I would say around black friday cyber monday.

    I just started looking around the Razer store myself recently. What really caught my eye was all the great pictures.

    Does it make the real difference? O-Rings?

    It does make a difference and does dampen the sound a bit, But if you are going with the green switch they are super loud compared to the other ones too. You might not be able to hear it as loud, But you will still manage to hear it, Depending on where you microphone is.
    Randomfrankp did a good review on all of the switches here, it shows all of there noises too. All of them you can still hear, But keep in mind that test is done without the O-Rings.
    Yeah, They have definitely gotten better with the picture side of things, And in general the whole site design over the couple years. Before they had the new font style and stuff, The site used to be quite ugly I have to admit, I don't know if you were around or remember those days :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:.

    Never used it but in theory, and according to other people, they muffle the noise of the keys bottoming out.
    I don't use a keyboard with green switches but the experience I have with talking to friends that used them is that it gets really annoying if they have voice activation or continuous recording, but if they use push to talk you will rarely notice the keystrokes they do.

    True that, but one thing that is annoying now is that if you have a direct link to a product you get redirected to the home page. I've actually stopped clicking on links to the site.

    If you really love the razer greens like me just adjust your mic settings like I have done. I really wanted the greens so I just adjusted my settings. Plus lots of youtubers use green switches like prestonplayz
