    Ha, so the posted image in that topic was real! I can't find anymore however, must have been deleted.

    I wonder how the yellow compares to the orange and green though, and I would love the separate wrist rest.

    So, you clear out warehouse of old stuff using the CES Sale excuse, and then restock new products putting it where the sun doesn't shine to your customers. Nice.
    I'm not annoyed by the wrist thingy but because now there's the Italian layout and the yellow switches which should be more silent. And I also contacted support asking for layout and stealth restock for CES, they didn't tell me anything.
    A "if you're looking for it we suggest you to wait a week or two" would have been enough.
    I was expecting new stuff but not the italian layout!
  6. I prefer the blackwidow X series but aloso I love cherry red switches or the new Razer yellow switches.I play Dota 2 and I hate the 5 macro keys on the left side.Just let you guys know if you make a blackwidow X model with silent switches I gonna buy it again !!thx

    And they should improve the lightning on the X since having no white backplate makes it less brighter, between keys especially.
  8. Brighter is better for me cuz I save money on lamps :big_grin_:

    Well looks great, but impossible to buy a Chroma V2 with Yellow Switches and UK Layout :)

    You should have had a pre-order button for non-produced items.

    Hopefully will be 'Available'/'In-Stock' soon.

    No, i meant those roller, like a long mouse scroll!
    I prefer to roll... than pressing FN+FunctionKeys

    I just hit keys as for phone or tv, 1 F key no Fn.
    But no, it's not there.

    Agreed completely! Needing to use 2 hands to change the volume is pretty crazy for a high end gaming keyboard with a large footprint. But at least you can use 3 of the macro keys for mute/up/down to get it to be only 1 button, although a roller/dedicated buttons would still be better. Most of the Logitech's have them also @Ktv3001. Maybe Razer is saving a roller for V3:rolleyes:

    Haha, Yep! Told ya it wasn't shopped ETitus!
    I understand your frustration...but if Razer did that they would be giving you special treatment by basically confirming a new keyboard was about to be released. The rest of us would still be in the dark.

    Also, I wouldn't call it "clear out warehouse of old stuff using the CES Sale excuse" - because all their newer products were in stock and available for purchase too.

    Lastly, yellow switches are similar to orange in sound. The difference is that they are linear instead of tactile. This is what typing on Razer Yellow should sound like.

    Well, also could have meant that the stealth was restocking soon after CES sales, not forcely new keyboards coming.
    The stealth I wanted wasn't available as a lot of things, cheaper objects at the end were not discounted due to shipping fees exc...
    The thing I hated the most is the italian layout release. They never had one in years and when I buy mine they release it soon after, I mean, really? And not a month after, but few days.
    You can't make the "generous company" face with 50% discounts (we all know they got votes to win ces for that also) while instead you are freeing yourself of the left merch. That's why they didn't even bothered to restock before sales.
    It's nothing new for business but from a company as Razer that insist on being different, for gamers by gamers it's kinda a low hit.
    Anyway my BW chroma is nice, but it has a bitter taste now.
