    are the Blackwidow stealth 2014 keys the same as the Blackwidow chroma, except quiet? I want to get one for work as I love the feel but I don't want to bother my colleagues.

    Thanks!

    The stealth edition uses different switches which specializes in the lower noise. So yes, the stealth is quieter than the standard or ultimate. I own both but prefer the standard for the better feedback for my preference.

    Thanks for the feedback! How different are the two? I see on the site that the clicky keys require a little more force

    I am not going to be using it for gaming but I would like to use the same software to manage it. I have swapped windows and left alt for example when I am on the Mac

    Honestly, the stealth feels like normal membrane keyboard to me. I have used both of them for school, gaming and just about everything. The non-stealth keys don't really require much more force than the stealth but it gives you a nicer feedback that you actually press the keys.

    Thank you for the comparison link!! :)
    However, the keycaps remover doesn't seem to be able to remove the spacebar or the long keys. I have failed a remove a spacebar once and i'm scared to do it again.

    Removing stabilizer keys (space bar, shift) etc... is quite easy using the keycap puller actually. There are some guides on the internet that show you how to do so, here is an example i just found that may help :) -

    I managed to get a Blackwidow Chroma Stealth in the CES sale.
    Before that, I had a non mechanical Cherry keyboard.
    I can tell you that the Stealth still makes quite a lot of noise, compared to a "regular" keyboard. I would never dare to use it at work as my colleagues already say that I type too loudly. So.. I guess it also depends on your typing style, really.

    TLDR: Louder than a normal, classic keyboard but depending on your typing style.

    I use my Razer BlackWidow Ultimate Stealth at Work. But here it is the same, my Collegues before already said I type very loud and with the BlackWidow (although it is the Stealth-Version) it's louder than before (which is Ok for my collegues). So as Nejona said it depends on your typing style (and your collegues).
    The feeling of the normal Version is IMHO a lot better than that of the Stealth-Version...
