    I finally decided to buy a mechanical keyboard and see what the hype is all about. This keyboard seemed like a solid entry point and it has proven so. The response and feel of the mechanical keys is great. Not just for gaming, but even just for typing and when I'm recording music. The customizable lighting effects are a fun way to personalize your desktop and bring more life to it. All around I've had no issues with this keyboard. If you're wanting to go mechanical I think this is a good investment.

    there are several good things about this keyboard, and i will list the points that i liked. 1# i really like the way this keyboard was built. it is solid. i have dropped it off my lap MANY times, and it has yet to break anything inside. #2. the back lite (in my favorit green color) really helps in the dark room reading and making sure i hit the right keys. #3. the Razer Synapse controle program gives you a bajillion ways to customize your stuff... like.. i really mean a bajillion. the only thing i found that i dont like. is (yes i knew it was a mechanical keyboard) that the mecanichal keyboard is LOUD. i knew it was going to be some noise... but man it is loud. my wife hates it because of the "clicky, clickly click" i still rate it as a 5

    Mechanics of the keyboard are excellent. Good feedback. I had no problems with downloading Razer Synapse and linking my keyboard with it. Though it is no Chroma, where you can change the colors of the keys, but the green itself is nice.

    While I do game, I bought this keyboard primarily for typing and it does not disappoint. There is no doubt when a keystroke registers and each stroke is crisp and clean. It also has a combined audio/mic cable run which is handy and the keyboard can carry USB-3 traffic neatly which allows for each access for thumb drives and the like. I originally doubted that the keyboard's merits would measure up to the cost of it, but I was wrong - this is a fine piece of gear that I enjoy using AND it increases my productivity by a small amount.

    I was surprised how very well built this keyboard is with high quality material, just by lifting it you can tell is very sturdy, they keys are super responsive (as advertised). The green led effects adds a nice look to your overall gaming rig. The only con is obviously the price, 90 bucks for a keyboard is insane! I bought it mainly for my son, he had been after me for months to get him this, but he has been doing very well in school so he deserved it. I couldn't say if this will make you a better gamer, but it certainly makes it easier to play certain games. I would not recommend you buy this unless you are absolutely convinced that you want or need it. I'd suggest you go into the store and try it for yourself.

    Fun keyboard

    This keyboard works fine. When you type on it, it makes a very definite click with each keystroke. Similarly to an old electric typewriter or a "newer" typewriter back in the day. The keys are a bit higher than standard computer keyboards. The keys are also smaller. We bought this for everyday computer use, programming use and some gaming. Since the keys are smaller and higher, it makes typing different and therefore slower. The lights are fun and can be a distraction which I don't mind. Overall we like the keyboard. I wouldn't want it for typing up papers on a regular basis. It's good for programming, regular computer usage and the gaming that we do use our computer for.

    I wanted to try a mechanical keyboard. So I went with Razer - Blackwidow Ultimate 2016 Gaming Keyboard on my friend's recommendation. Great buy. Great price. Amazing feedback keyboard for gaming. Back lit keyboard for that late night gaming experience. Great response with double and triple clicks. Do I need to say more?

    I bought this keyboard because there were many great reviews of this keyboard. I bought it to use for PC gaming. This is a great keyboard; one thing to keep in mind is that it is a mechanical keyboard; it is louder than the standard keyboards today. That being said, it is by far the best keyboard that I have had to date. I also love all the other features that come standard with this keyboard. Would definitely recommend this keyboard!
