Razer's new BlackWidow, Kraken, and Basilisk Essential line delivers gaming performance at a budget-friendly price.
The Razer BlackWidow keyboard is sporting many features of the flagship BlackWidow Elite, fitted with Razer’s tactile and clicky Green Mechanical Switches.
Designed for gaming by Razer, the Green Mechanical Switch features a tactile bump and distinctive click sound, with optimized actuation and reset points. Using Razer’s improved dual-side wall switch design, key wobble is minimized while increasing accuracy and responsiveness. Each key is rated to last up to 80 million keystrokes.
The BlackWidow offers Razer Chroma with individual key lighting of 16.8 million colors controllable via Razer Synapse 3. With Razer Hypershift, every key can be a macro key, or be assigned secondary functions through Razer Synapse 3. The Razer BlackWidow also features on-board hybrid memory and cloud storage, allowing you to preserve your personalized settings (such as lighting profiles, key binds and macros) when used with different computers.
