    So with the release of two awesome V2 products in the last month! it looks like Razer are stepping up their V2 game-so my question is what product would you like to be re-visited, and why?
    Mine is a firefly V2 with brighter lighting, more lighting customization and a USB pass through. :)
    Let me know yours :heart:

    some blackwidow TE v2's would be sweet! i tend to prefer TE size keyboard more because i never really use the numpad for gaming and the TE's are easier to carry around if i need to play games at my friends houses.

    My next purchase will be a Firefly... so I'm holding out for the V2.

    I would not buy it, But i have heard some people wanting it for the new wrist rest, And possibly a version fixing the rust problem that happens some times.

    After the Sphex and Hammerhead? Probably a black Goliathus V2, a Mamba, a Deathstalker and a Diamonback, and maybe a V2 of the aluminum mousepad (forgot the name). Then... a Forge V2 at 2018 and a Firefly.

    The first version of the X just came out though. I dont think they would release a V2 version of it anytime soon

    After the countless praising I gave the Blackwidow X on this very forum I have to agree about the rusting thing. I gotta eat humble pie on it cause mine started to rust and I'm currently in the process of an RMA...I'd love a new one to come out with a wrist rest and better metal but I'm not willing to wait so looking at exchanging it for the new Blackwidow (me paying the rest) cause if I exchange it for a current X i can see it rusting again

    Yeah, But now that there is a new Blackwidow with a wrist rest included, And on the Canadian Razer store is around 10$ cheaper, People would rush for the Blackwidow in most cases, leaving the Blackwidow X alone for the most part. There is also the new Razer yellow switch that some people may want in a Blackwidow X, And it is not currently in one yet.
    Yeah, The rusting seems to be a common issue. Apperently there is a higher chance of it rusting if you have sweaty hands, and if you leave by an ocean, where the air from the ocean can get to the keyboard. Also in damp places there may be a increased chance of rust. I was going to get a Blackwidow X, But this the rusting stuff started to happen, And the ornata came out so i decided to get that instead.

    Good thinking! :) I would love to see Mamba v2 with Deathadder Elite sensor (PWM 3389). It's optical and most precise for now, not like cheap Philips PLN that's currently sits in Mambas, Nagas etc :slightly_sad:

    They could just add the yellow switch to the X without having to make a v2 version technically. They have added/removed switch options in the past without a v2 version. and the X is already made out of some sort of metal, so they might be able to sell a magnetic wrist rest for it separately, or just start having the option to bundle it with the current version.

    I don't live near the ocean or have very sweaty hands but mine is starting to very faintly rust at the bottom somehow but yeah it's not worth dealing with rust...Tbh I'd be nearly tempted to get the ornata instead of the new Blackwidow but in all honesty I'd love a new Deathstalker mechanical chiclet keyboard.

    They could, But they may brand it as a V2 alone to gain peoples attention more. Would also stop confusing people, Since some stores may get stock of the updated one and still have the old one as well, Both under the same name.
    The Ornata is a amazing keyboard imo, But it does have a couple little problems. The wrist rest magnet is not as strong as i would like it to be, Unlike the Blackwidow V2 where you can pick up the keyboard with the rest still attached, You cannot with the ornata. Some of my keys also sound a little bit off, So i am bringing it back to the store in a couple days to get a replacement to see if that helps it out at all. Its a good keyboard for its price, And i find it good coming off a deathstalker, Takes super quick to get used to it.
    I would also like a Mechanical Deathstalker, And Min hinted it on twitter before, Since they do have the keys to do it. Would not doubt if we see one in the near future.

    I heard the magent in the V2 is very weak also to the point a very slight movment can remove the rest :eek: but yeah I want an updated deathstalker so badly

    Thanks for writing this-the wrist rest and the keys are the reasons im thinking of buying the BW V2. i currently use the deathstalker chroma and agree with you on having a mechanical version

    The wrist rest in the Ornata is not the best, And is a little bit loose. You cannot pick up the keyboard and the rest stays attached on the Ornata, But you can on the Blackwidow V2. One of the only reasons i regret getting a Ornata is because the rest on the new Blackwidow V2 is better, And that the new V2 is more cheap then the old one, So it would have hit my price range a lot better.
