What can I do with the Razer BlackWidow?
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.

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. The Razer logo lights up with adjustable brightness. 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.

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 you’re still in gaming mode.

What is this keyboard compatible with?
The Black Widow is compatible with Windows XP (32-bit), Vista, 7 and 8. 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 4 out of 5 by from Great buy This is my first mechanical keyboard and i absolutely love it. It was hard to get used to at first but after a while it becomes natural and much easier/better than regular rubber dome keyboards. The keyboard its self is a bit pricey but is well worth the money as it feels, looks and even sounds great with its clicky keys that are a trademark of Cherry MX blue switches. The only downside i could say is that the keys can wobble quite a bit and don't feel very secure, although i don't really mind this as the key caps are defiantly secure and the wobble it isn't noticeable while typing . would defiantly recommend this keyboard if you are looking for an average grade gaming, mechanical keyboard.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Amazing Keyboard This keyboard is one of the best mechanical keyboards arond with its new razer mechanical switches. The extra USB port on the side with the headphone and microphone jack aswell. If you like the clicky sound and the feel of a mechnical keyboard, this is definetly a best buy. The only thing that could top this is the ultimate version. But this only adds backlit keys. If you do not like the sound of the click, I woukd recommend the deathstalker instead. But this is personally one of the best keyboards you can buy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very good this is a very good and high quality keyboard which sounds amazing and does the job very good the only downside i can find with this keyboard is that the key do not light up which i thought they did but dont which is a shame if you are looking to buy on with lights get the ultimate edition.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from just the best this is a fantastic keyboard that is all there is to say. the wire is long enough to reach for just about every one the usb pass through is handy and the option of a headset plug in is the cherry on the top. the keyboard is super responsive not missed a beat for me yet..... and the razer synapse program is fantastic as well

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Must for PC Gamers. I bought this yesterday; after playing various games such as CS:GO and LoL on a standard keyboard for 3 years I have now found what I was looking for in order to increase my skill level. It is quite loud but with a good headset on, you can barely hear it. Only thing i had a problem with is the "m" keys at the side, i keep hitting them instead of shift and tab. Don't let this put you off though, synapse 2.0 is a good tool to programme these keys to anything you want. For example, in CS:GO i have set the m1 key to do rapidfire when i press it. BUY THIS PRODUCT NOW!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really nice keyboard I bought this keyboard today and I have to say it is absolutely incredible! The clicky keys feel amazing and I really like the feel of it. The only problem I had was the packaging as I couldn't get the cables out, but other than that, the keyboard is great! I would recommend this to anyone, and the switches are really nice. The software that Razer makes is simplistic and easy to use too so you should have no problem making macros or anything else really. Overall this is a really good product for the price and would recommend this to anyone else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just a Great Keyboard I got this keyboard as a gift and it is one of the best that I have used in my life, all the keys have a great feel to them and the feedback is great as you know when you have actually pressed a key or not, or even if you pressed one by accident. All in all, it is a great keyboard that I know will last me a good few years.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Smart Keyboard This is a great mechanical keyboard. It feels good quality and has a handy USB and sound pass through. This is great for those who want to get a basic mechanical keyboard to start with. It works on Windows and Mac but I use Linux and it is still possible to get the 'm' keys to work with a little tinkering.

Does the keyboard have backlighting, I went on the Razer store and saw this exact model, but with green backlighting, does this one also do that?

Asked by: Peter11
This model ( RZ03-00393000-R3W1 ) does not have backlight I think you are mistaking the Blackwidow http://www.razerzone.com/gb-en/store/razer-blackwidow-old for the Blackwidow Ultimate http://www.razerzone.com/gb-en/store/razer-blackwidow-ultimate-2014 We do sell this one with backlights http://www.maplin.co.uk/p/razer-blackwidow-chroma-mechanical-gaming-keyboard-a70tf
