    Hey guys so I know this is kind of a stupid question but, I was wondering if razer has made any changes (other than the pretty colorful backlights). I have the black widow ultimate 2013 edition but spilled some monster rehab on it and now my n key and m key are a little sticky. I was wondering if its worth to buy the chroma or try an new keyboard

    I had the BlackWidow Ultimate Stealth and just opted for the Blackwidow Chroma Stealth, and I really can't tell much difference between the two. The newer mechanical keys have a slightly different feel, but the keyboard as a whole is pretty much the same.

    However, I also think that the new chroma lighting really *IS* worth it -- while the standard options are nifty, the many ways you can custom color is limitless. I am really glad I made the change.

    The new mechanical keys is sure worth it to change. I have the same BlackWidow 2013 with you and always wanted to change the new one. But too bad I still haven "carelessly" spill coke on it and the BlackWidow just don't want to die by itself. So, I still do not have an excuse for myself to buy a new one. LOL

    So, your question is BlackWidow Ultimate or BlackWidow Chroma. It is definitely depends on your preference. For functionality wise, there is no difference between these 2 awesome keyboard. If you feel like meh for the multi-colour LED and wanted to save some money, go for BlackWidow Ultimate. If you like to do some customization of the light to suit your mood or any holiday/celebration, go for BlackWidow Chroma. IMO, since Razer is working on this Chroma line, it will be still a lot possibility of more customization/changes to the multi-colour LED. It will be fun to play with it if you do not mind the extra cost of BlackWidow Chroma.

    So I remember when they were first releasing it they were saying that the key code will be open source for customization on the colors for the chroma, did they ever do that of so has anyone messed with it and tryed it
