    I'm student in Computer Science.
    At this moment, i have a really bad keyboard and i want to change it.
    For my study, I type code.
    I mainly play FPS (as CSGO) and also RPG.
    Which Keyboard can you recommend me ?
    Thanks for your answers

    Can't go wrong with the blackwidow, you can get it with any of razers switches(green, orange or yellow). I use the blackwidow tournament edition with green keys. I like the clickyness of the keys and don't have a need for the number pad.

    Chroma is for RGB
    Tournament Edition is for TKL (no numpads)
    What do X and Ultimate mean ?

    Blackwidow X is a different version of the keyboard, it shows the metal frame instead of having the plastic cover.
    Blackwidow Ultimate is more of a classic style. both of them are just different versions with slight variations.

    Personally, I use the Blackwidow Chroma V2 with orange switches. I love the feel of the "bump" in the key when I know it's fully actuated, however, I can't stand the actual "clicky" noise that comes with the green switches. It annoys the ever-living-dickens out of me. lol The yellow switches are also available on this keyboard, those have a smooth feel with no click and no actuation "bump" mid-press. Everyone who has one seems to truly love those switches. I recommend the Blackwidow Chroma V2 to anyone for any gaming style, plus it comes with the magnetic wrist rest that attaches to the keyboard which makes it the most comfortable typing experience I've had in a long time.

    Based on other user reviews and what I've seen on the forums, I'd say that the second most loved keyboard from Razer is probably the Razer Ornata. This is a mecha-membrane keyboard which is a hybrid between having the mechanical switch and the smooth feel and smaller key style of a membrane keyboard. Folks seem to really love feel while typing and using it for work scenarios, but it also sounds like it works just as well for gaming as any of the other mechanical keyboards.

    I'd suggest you go to the nearest Razer physical store, or at least any other tech store that offer razer keyboards for testing, and see for yourself.

    It's hard to choose when you scroll through wall of images and reviews on youtube. But all you have to do is touch it. Feel it. Click it. And then you can choose without having second thought.

    That's what I did, and I really love my X TE
