    Just because they're made in China, people dislike them. That's pretty judgemental, ey?

    I love them, but the 'clickiness' seems to wear off over time. It's not that bad though.

    I prefer these switches to the Cherry ones I tried.

    I have the orange switches and am typing with the Blackwidow 2014 stealth edition right now! It, in my opinions, is really amazing! I love the switches!

    I'm always entertained by the thought process/ R&D behind the products. Thank you!

    I've never bought a keyboard from Razer. I've only had laptops, and just used the keyboard it came with. But can someone explain to me orange and green switches. Do some keyboards have one or the other, or is there an option to choose what switches you put in there?

    the switches aren't so bad! I got my BW stealth 2014 last year and I like using the MX brown switches. but I want to get the green/blue switch so that I can feel that I am using a mechanical keyboard while working. this is indeed a good innovation and a good move to cut cost :) way to go razer please continue on creating products for gamers by gamers

    the orange switch are silent type. which means that you will now know whether the it registered your press or not. but the green keys is you loud. you will hear a "click" sound when you press your keys indicating that the key is registered which is a good thing since you are well aware that you do not need to press that hard. hope it explains a lot. have you used any mecha kb with MX cherry switches?

    No, I've only been gaming on laptops. Do you know which keyboards have orange and green switches?

    usually it is indicated on the box if it uses orange or green. but you can easily distinguish it with the name sample. Blackwidow ultimate 2016 uses green switches but the blackwidow ultimate stealth 2016 uses orange switches :)

    hope this helps

    I will be waiting for that sir. :) Razer KB are solid when you go to any computer store you can test the arrow keys of some Razer KB so that you will know what is the difference of the switches and with that you can choose what to buy base on your preference.

    Yeah, I just went to Best buy just to test the keys lol. I'm probably going to get the blackwidow ultimate stealth.

    good job razer :) , pc gamers are on the next level coz of innovation razer has been doing in pc gaming .PC gamers thanks you .
     
  16. I hope they make a blackwidow chroma with the blackwidow chroma X's military grade body. I mean the blackwidow X chroma is great but it would be better to have those Macro keys and USB pass-through as well as audio and mic pass-through. Macro recording is great, but dedicated macro keys are much more comfortable in my opinion. I still love razer products though and I'm planning to buy more soon.

    Ich weiß nicht warum, eigneltich bringt z.B. Cherry deutlich mehr Erfahrung was Switches angeht mit, aber die Razer Switche (ich hab die Orangenen) sind deutlich angenhemer als die von Cherry. Außerdem finde ich das Produktportfolio deutlich übersichtlicher, so kann man sich leichter entscheiden.
    P.S.: Bleibe deswegen meistens bei ein und der selben Firma weil ich sonst mich einfach nicht entscheiden kann was ich kauf :D

    Loving how much they are developing the gaming industry
     
  20. I find that the lifetime of these switches is very high, 80 million key presses should last very long depending on the games you are playing, or what other things you do when not gaming, has anybody tried the new switches? If so how do they feel?
