Silent Keyboards

    Good afternoon

    I'm wondering if Razer/the community could define the nature of 'Silent' in regards to keyboards. A few years back I bought a Cougar 450k Mechanical keyboard for my gaming needs - lovely keyboard - very happy with it except it is rather noisy, in fact very noisy when typing. This doesn't bother me but drives the wife nuts. So always wanting to purchase the best when I can and after a little research I convinced the wife to let me buy a Blackwidow Elite Orange Key - Tactile and Silent. I assumed that Silent followed the dictionary definition of silent - i.e. absence of sound but clearly I've missed something because this new keyboard at 3 times the price of the cougar is only marginally quieter and certainly not silent when typing; hence I will be returning it.

    Could the community advise me please if there is a full sized Razer gaming keyboard that is silent (dictionary definition) when typing or as close to as possible please?

    many thanks

    In general, choosing a quiet keyboard is quite simple, just check the instructions that came with it or find them on the Internet. Thanks to manymanuals , I found the Razer tron manuals and purchased this product myself. There you can find instructions for other interesting equipment. Very comfortably.

    For more silence I'd choose lineal, silent switches. But there will be always sound, when bottoming the key. There's solution for it - install o-rings that would dapnen the sound a bit.
    I didn't tested it personally (yet) - but Razer Lineal Optical 2nd gen (red) switches are nice and quiet. They have rubber inside the switch itself to dampen the sound - but the 2nd gen are available only Huntsman Mini at the moment (correct me if I'm wrong).
