    Yh me too but i got a blue led setup so the green would ruin the theme. I think i will just buy the tournament edition for liek 30$ less. I would recommend the same if you dont have a green setup.

    I think they will release it in the near future. First of all you would just need to put rgb led's in their instead of just green. Second of all the BW chroma is their #1 selling keyboard so they would need to release a new updated, improved version of their best keyboard

    I am interested in this keyboard. Can't decide between this one and the chroma

    LOL about the typo.

    And yeah, some people say the Stealth is like a mix between reds and browns. They actually do have a tactile bump, just no clicky sound.

    Very good looking keyboard. I love and chose the older gen. Blackwidow because of the dedicated macro keys however.

    I only tried reds and Razer greens. I bought the Blackwidow 2014 edition in... 2014... yea, but had to send it back, because it really couldn't fit my taste. Clicky sound, tactile and little bit heavy to press and I didn't like the macro keys. Than they brought stealth versions and TE, which really is a big step in my direction, but still tactile.

    I really wouldn't say that orange are a mix of browns and reds, because if you compare greens and orange, there is the exact same architecture for tactile feed back.

    Razer Green:

    Razer Orange:

    And reds are missing the little bump for the feedback.

    So in my opinion greens are just (a lot) better produced blues and same goes for orange and browns.

    are the lighting effects compatible with the SDK chroma effects but just only with the color green?

    Well Gojjang, those infographics made by razer are a bit misleading. The Cherry MX Blue (and Razer Green) actually have a completely different 'plunger' mechanism that makes them quite different from all the other types. Have a look at this diagram:


    As you can see, the inner workings of the Red are more similar to the Brown. However, I completely 100% agree with you - I think the Oranges are like Browns while Greens are like Blues. I think they are meant to be that way, but I hear from some people that they 'feel' like Oranges are similar to Reds because they have less actuation force than the Cherry MX version.

    I also know exactly what you mean about the heavy Blues. When I first made the switch and started typing on a keyboard with them, my fingers experienced fatigue incredibly fast...had never happened to me before. Eventually I got used to them over time, but like you, I do prefer a lighter switch for many reasons. Fun fact: fastest typist in the US uses the Das keyboard version of Browns.

    Pretty much the same keyboards. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

    Best of luck!

    Now this looks promising enough to swap for blackwidow chroma ;), and give chroma as a present to my nephew ;) he'd die for coloured keyboard.

    Now I have to sell my 2015 version!
  17. I need a keyboard to go with my free iphone case
  18. You can choose to pick the silent keyboard, I think.

    Yep! :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

    You can go for the ''silent but deadly (stealth)'' or the ''loud and proud (clicky)'' edition.

    Correct me if I'm wrong but I believe the stealth is a little more pricey (just a bit).

    Nope! They're actually the exact same price - the Stealth is just exclusive to razerzone so you can't buy it anywhere else because Razer doesn't distribute it to retailers.


    Don't see why this wouldn't be true for regions outside the US.
