    Ok. So I was just at a Best Buy the other day, and I saw the gaming stuff, so I decided to try out some of the stuff there. I went over to the Razer area and found the Blackwidow Chroma and the Blackwidow Ultimate 2016 (Ultimate 2016 with CMX-Blue) You've probably seen some fanboy rant about how CMX is superior to all other brands and maybe how gaming keyboards are overpriced. So I tried out the Blackwidow Chroma, and I immediatly noticed how springy, snappy, and clicky they were. Then I tried the Ultimate 2016 and they actually less snappy and a little mushier than the Razer switches. I want to know if you have had a similar experience, and if you think that Razer switches feel "cheap" then tell me why exactly.

    Someone said cherry mx switch is durable than Razer switches. But in my country, some of the internet cafe using Razer Blackwidow as their keyboard. Internet cafe require a durable keyboard to reduce maintenance cost. If Razer switch is not durable, why they using Blackwidow as their keyboard.

    Personally feel that Razer switch is clicky than cherry blue switch, but not much different. (Not an expert on keyboard switch)
  3. I personally have a Cherry MX Blue keyboard currently and although I love it, after trying a friend's Blackwidow with the Razer Green switches, I must say that Razer's switches seem much more precise, clicky, and have much less wobble in the keys (actually no wobble at all!). I think I feel confident in buying a Blackwidow with the Razer switches after trying it out. To be honest, the Razer's felt waaay better then the Blues and did not feel cheep at all.

    I agree 100%, I've always had the feeling that the cherry mx keys are less tactile than the Razer one's , although they are definitely not cheap.
    However I guess cherry keys where never made for gaming in the first place, so I guess Razer seems to take the lead on this issue
    But I also have to say that I've never tried the new mx speed switches, which are said to be much better than the other mx versions.

    When I was at a LAN the other day I compered my Razer switch to the Cherry MX and I definitely preferred the actuation of the Razer switch.
