    Oh, that's really weird...

    I just saw one for an extra $10 on the Razer Store. o_O

    I can't seem to locate the page now but I'm definitely not seeing things.

    Thanks for correcting me, regardless!

    Somehow I feel forced to by a Corsair keyboard... Just because of the switches... It's a shame! :slightly_sad:

    I played really long on rubberdomes and loved them, but I have to go with the time. As a very picky person, Reds were the less demanding changeover for me, because they come close to rubberdomes in case of actuation force and tactileness. imo

    Ah haha, "go with the times." You know mechanical keyboards are actually older technology than the membrane design? But now I understand. Please have a look at the Steel Series Apex M800:

    It is an RGB backlit gaming keyboard with custom linear switches. With only 1.5mm actuation distance, it is advertised as the fastest mechanical keyboard in the world. It's a well thought-through design. Might be just the thing you need.

    FYI--Razer currently has a promotion that includes the o-rings, while interestingly Newegg actually has 10% off the keyboard right now. I want the o-rings though so will likely order from Razer.

    if there is one complant I have over the Blackwidow chroma it's the way it gets stained very quicky. I have marks all over the plastic like little dots that just won't come off.

    I take it this new one with it's smudge coating won't get that?

    My chroma keys are also starting to feel a bit spongy and i don't know why :S

    also how come this board isn't using the new font for the keys like the blade stealth is? @Razer|Technokat

    Wondering if you could describe the 'little dots' a bit better. Do you mean like hand/finger oil smudges?

    This BlackWidow was actually released back in October of 2015 (I know it's called the 2016 version lol). The Blade Stealth sports font from Razer's new 2016 Design Refresh which came afterwards. See more here: "RΛZΞR FONT" Keycaps (scroll down a bit to find the CEO's post).

    Technokat confirmed in an earlier post that this is indeed a late announcement.

    Well yeah finger smudges and I have like little black dots on my keyboard swell. could be from juice or something i'm not 100% sure but they literally won't come off.

    Ah shit I didn't notice it launched last year....I was thinking about going for this new one just for the new coating tbh but the lack of new font is kinda annoying me.

    I can get it for £85 with my insider voucher which is great and might be worth a try

    Is there a big difference between silent and not?
    I wanted a mechanical keyboard, do you guys recommend this one?

    Razer Green vs Razer Orange
