    FINALLY. My keyboard.

    I have been waiting for precisely 189 days, 12 hours, 45 minutes, and 4 seconds since the Razer BlackWidow Chroma V2 was announced for the TKL version.

    Razer did almost everything right this time:
    • Detachable cord :heavy_check_mark:
    • Magnetic wrist rest :heavy_check_mark:
    • Contained backlight :heavy_check_mark:
    • Available in all switch types :heavy_check_mark:
    Truly impressive.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but it seems like this no longer comes with the carrying case. I guess it's a fair trade since we get the wrist rest now.

    You guys did such a good job that it's hard for me to do mine - finding something to critique :sweat_smile:
    The only thing I came up with is the fact that the "fn" key isn't backlit. It is on the BW Chroma V2 though, so that's a minor drawback.

    Is it missing the indicator lights? It doesn't seem to have any based on the photos. Also, I do hope that the wrist rest is the leatherette variant and not the same cloth variant they're selling.

    I guess to match the function keys not being backlit again?

    I'm trying to decide if I should get this now or wait for a year to be assured of the build quality. I had to go through 3 (or 4) BW X TE Chromas before I got one that was bearable but still wasn't satisfactory. Had to RMA it after a year and the one I received seems to have a better build quality than the ones I received when I initially ordered it.

    Hey, @Razer|Gwynbleidd, would we be safe to assume that this keyboard is the next product compatible with Synapse 3? There's no specific mention of it on the product page.

    Will this come with a keyboard bag just as it came with the blackwidow chroma TE? And if it does not, will the older bag still fit a V2 TE?

    Defs like the smaller size for hauling around!

    Edit: why won't my imgur links show pictures :h

    I'll be looking to get this soon! Now that I've read the page at the razer store, I'll need to find out more about the difference in silent switches (which is what I'm aiming for) Tactile and linear.

    I wish I could swap my Blackwidow X TE Chroma to that awesome upgrade of V2 :heart:

    Hmm...price seems pretty close to the full Blackwidow v2. I understand why but I do disagree with that.

    I think the only keycaps razers sells are the metal keycaps you see in the zsilver store. They have some nice after market keycaps on amazon though.

    When would that be available? I picked up my BlackWidow TE Chroma v2 a couple days ago and still don't have some of the effects the regular chroma v2 has.

    A little too small for my tastes! But it looks great :)!
