    Hey guys, I'm planning on purchasing my first mechanical keyboard and I think I've settled on getting a Razer one as a lot of my friends have recommended their keyboards.

    I'm not an expert when it comes to mechanical keyboards as I've never used them before (I've only used laptops), so I was really confused and unsure where to start when I saw how many different options thereAppvnwere available.

    Currently I'm looking at the Razer BlackWidow Elite, Razer BlackWidow Chroma V2, and the Razer Huntsman/Huntsman Elite, but I don't know how they compare relatively to each other. If you could rank these keyboards, which one would you say is the best? Is the Huntsman line the top of the pack for Razer keyboards? I mainly game and do web-browsing/media consumption, and being a laptop user I suppose ISHAREit don't really get the craze around click noises and actuation times.

    Also if anyone has recommendations for specific switch types/colours I'd really appreciate that as well!

    Razer offers two types of mechanical switches. There is their traditional mechanical switches featuring Green (Tactile/Clicky), Orange (Tactile/Silent) and Yellow (Linear/Silent). This lineup is featured on the BlackWidow Elite (the keyboard I am using right now) and the BlackWidow Chroma V2. Their second type of switch if their optical switches which are Purple (Light/Clicky) and Red (Linear/Silent). This switch is available only on their Huntsman lineup.
  3. Well all four of your choices are good choices and I have owned all four and currently continue to own all of them the four keyboards you stated that you were attempting to research and figure out which one out of the four that you want to choose from. Anyways, I must say, that I am now using on a regular basis the "Huntsman Mini" it is absolutely fantastic, and it would be the one I advise you to purchase, but if the Huntsman Mini is in fact to small for your comfort and activities, then I would just get the Huntsman Tournament edition, it is a close second to the Mini, but if like I said and acknowledged if the mini is to small and/or just not addiquate for what it is you plan, want, and currently and in the near future will be doing, then I advice once more to get the Huntsman Tournament Edition!
