    You got a good eye. Analyzing and exposing Razers secrets. Corporate Spy would be a good job for you.:big_grin_: Excited about razer coming out with a new design though. Perhaps like some people mentioned custom key caps available for purchase from razer in the future would be phenomenal.

    Would replacement keycaps with the new font be available? Because if not, I'll be holding off a purchase of the BlackWidow.

    Haha...they're hardly secrets. I just like details, which is probably why I like this company so much in the first place. If I were to be a corporate spy, I'd only do it for Razer :wink_:

    That lower case R is kinda bugging me. Fortunately I have a set of vortex black backlit keys. What's more of an issue with all the BWs is the nonstandard modifier keys

    I hope we're going to have this new font on the 2016 chroma blackwidow !! =)

    I'm not bothered with the current Razer keyboard font. Like others said, it gives character to Razer products.

    Though having a "cleaner" font would interest non-gamers (typography folks) to utilize Razer keyboards.

    I think new blade stealth keycap's font is acceptable because the font on it is titillium, which is using in razerstore. And when I think "who buy that rig?", I can understand why they did like that.
    The old font has too aggressive feel to appeal to normal gamers. I think Min have got a right way. The newer one looks pretty cool but not normal like usual 'i am cool' brands. It still have a strong point within its line.

    can we get a copy of this Font? be simple enough to put together a key-cap set.
  9. I like the old one better

    This might be due to the RGB lighting, or maybe just a design feature. Who knows? Maybe this is one of Intel's "Ultrabook" specifications. XD

    That said, I didn't think I would like it, but I love how there's no light spill around the keys like an MSI. Gives it a really nice clean look. +1 for Razer. :D


    Exactly same question I wanted to ask:big_grin_::big_grin_:


    Agree! Looking forward to having 2016 BW Chroma with new font

    The new font is def not as sweet as the old... The old at least wasn't so plain!

    Heh, I guess the opinions seem to be split on this. I should have done a poll.

    I wish the BWU 2016 had the new 2016 fonts.

    I can see the issues but the old font wasn't as bad as you make it out to be. It was no mistake to do this. Some styles just have a little scramble to them, that's all.

    Lol, I think you may have misunderstood my post. I wasn't trying to make the old font out to be bad - just pointing out things I've heard over and over again from fans here on the forums. Like I said in my original post, "some people" are bugged by the font, not all. There are definitely inconsistencies, but a lot of people have posted here saying they liked the old font more. I personally prefer this new design refresh font because it's consistent (caps look like caps, lower case is all lower case) and looks designerly clean, that's all.

    I like the new font, but I don't care what font my keyboard has, I almost don't look at it.

    I know and I realize I may have worded that in a different way than was implied. I didn't mean to sound like this was some sort of defense. It's simply just my opinion on the keys' font. I liked them but these new ones are a good change.
