    May i know what are the differences between 2016's and 2015's?
  2. Hello everyone,

    I have a problem with the Lighting Effects Configurator in Razer Synapse 2.0: It doesn't work at all. :slightly_sad:
    When i open the window it looks like this:

    And if I click on WASD for example, the window closes itself. And the game templates change nothing if I select and apply them.
    Am I missing something? Do I need to install a special driver or something?

    I have the Razer Blackwidow Ultimate 2016 Edition (Model No. RZ03-0170). It has the Swiss keyboard layout.
    I've tried on my Desktop (Win7) and on my Laptop (Win10), exact same problem on both machines.

    Please help!

    I think it can be harmful to the view of those who look at the keyboard when typing

    Well, i think this is a great improvement in comparsion to the old one. In My opinion, the Indicators should be in one line, and not in this bouncing order.
    Is there any Chance, that we get a blackwidow chroma 2016 ?
  7. love the lighting on it

    that is pure nonsense

    its called the chroma x

    i have one it isnt smudge free at all

    the new one is the chroma x

    I really wish there was a way for people to pay an extra amount to trade in their old keyboard (e.g Blackwidow Ultimate) for a chroma version:frown_:

    Love the lighting affects and overall look, I'm not too big of a fan of the switches though
  10. Razer Blackwidow Ultimate 2016 is my first Razer gear.
    Actually 85% I'm satisfied with this gear, but there are some minus that I experienced,
    some keys (fghjcvzx) click not as loud as other keys? Is it normal? Maybe because of the placement of the switches in the keyboard?

    I like the features advanced lighting system, this is great. Also because I'm a first user of mechanical keyboard, the typing feel is absolutely interesting and make some addiction

    i love it when the blackwidow X ultimate adapted the lightning capabilities of the BW ultimate 2016. i did not know that the 2014 edition only have a breathing effect when i bought. i should say razer is really very aggressive in targeting their markets.
  12. Thanks for the opportunity!
  13. Hi I have the same problem with the effect configurator.
    I tried to uninstall the driver and the Razer Synapse Software but didn't work.

  15. Does this keyboard (Chroma or any kind) has Cherry Mx switches? Can I choose from razer switches to others? Please reply :>

    Same to me

    I only seek personalize the keys illuminated, only the keys that I like, not all keys.

    only the Blackwidow X ultimate has the MX cherry keys. seems that they are planning on sticking with Razer switch for their chroma line. adding the MX switch with Chroma is a winwin situation for us. but not for them since a lot of gamers really prefer the MX switches over the razer keys. so if they i put the MX cherry with the chroma a lot of people will buy that ignoring the Razer switches.

    Ok, because razer ignores us, the solution is to run the synapse as administrator.:mad_:

    Does any software exist like "Croma Sync" witch is compatible with this keyboard?

  19. I think Razer will continue the use of their own switches rather than Cherry MX. They have developed this switch to be more comfortable, and claimed to be the most durable keyswitch with 80 million time keystrokes
  20. Old Razer keyboard uses Cherry MX switches, but start in 2014 Razer use their own Razer Switch, that made by Kailh.. but this absolutely not Kailh, since they have their own Quality Control
