What can I do with the Razer Black Widow?
Customise your keyboard for every eventuality with fully programmable keys. With programmable keys, five addition gaming keys, anti-ghosting and a 60 million keystroke lifespan this is a perfect keyboard for any gamer from those just starting to the top of the leader boards. With a reliable wired connection, 1ms response rate and 2m cable you can game without worrying about signal dropout or low power. Game your way and customise your keyboard so you have all your tools at a moment’s notice. Be the envy of every gamer out there.

What other features does the keyboard have?
With mechanical keys and 10 keys anti-ghosting this is the perfect keyboard for a fast paced adventure. Press up to 10 keys at the same time and have all of them register and with the mechanical keys 50g actuation force you get the tactile feedback to know exactly what was pressed. Connect your mic or headset to your keyboard with separate jacks or the USB pass through – no more messing about with out of the way ports or wires getting in the way.

What can I do with the Chroma lighting?
Choose from 16.8 million colours to customise your keyboard. Try different effects from gentle colour cycling and relaxing breathing effect to a reactive effect the lights the keys as you press them and dynamic wave effects, you can even just light specific useful keys in coloured groups with the mode settings. Set up different colours with different profiles so you can tell at a glance what profile you’re in at any given moment.

Can I customise the keys?
On this fully programmable keyboard you can set up to seven functions for each key so you can have as many options as you could want. Choose your favourite spells, weapons or macros and have them ready at a moment’s notice. Build profiles in the Razer Synapse 2.0 and link them to specific games, profiles 0-9 can be set as shortcuts to your number keys. Record macros on the fly with an indicator light to let you know you are recording the keys. The multimedia keys let you manage your volume and mic volume separately from your keyboard as well as skip forwards, skip backwards, play/pause and mute. You can set mouse function to different keys as well so no need for anything except your keyboard. Nothing is worse than accidentally pressing the Windows button and being taken out of your game world, and the game switch mode on this keyboard disables the Windows key and removes this problem with an indicator so when you leave the game you’ll know if it’s still running.

What is this keyboard compatible with?
The Black Widow is compatible with Windows 7, 8 and 10 and Mac OS X v10.08-10.11. The keyboard is compatible with the Razer Synapse 2.0 Software, for you to customise your key settings and create modes and profiles for your games. With a massive range of options at your fingertip you’ll never be short of a shortcut.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product & Staff I've only recently received this product but it is amazing, the chroma effect is really nice and extremely helpful in FPS layout. It also looks nice in general is extremely tactile and responsive to gameplay. There is a slight drawback with the price, however it more than makes up for it
