The limited edition Stormtrooper version of Razer's BlackWidow Lite wired mechanical keyboard has dropped to $69.97 at GameStop. This deal matches the lowest price we've seen for this keyboard, and it's a sale we have only witnessed once before. The keyboard normally goes for around $100 at other retailers like Dell, so it's a nice chunk of savings off the regular price.

Razer has several Stormtrooper-themed accessories, including a mouse and extra-large mouse pad, so be sure to get a matching set while you're at it.

The keyboard uses Razer's Orange switches with tactile feedback and a low actuation force. Despite that, the O-Ring dampeners ensure they don't make a lot of noise. Has white LED backlighting and programmable macro support with Razer Hypershift.

First and foremost, this is a Razer BlackWidow mechanical keyboard. It is designed for gamers and for people who need some good feedback. It uses Razer's Orange mechanical switches, which will give you some tactile feedback with every keypress. They also require only 45 G of actuation force, which makes them great for high APM games and typing. The O-ring sound dampeners help reduce the key noise and typing fatigue so you won't feel it in your hands even after a long time. It's also a tenkeyless design with a detachable cable, so it's easy to travel with and helps reduce fatigue with the compact size.

The backlighting is White to match the Star Wars Stormtrooper theme. You do have full control over the brightness of that backlighting, too, along with the ability to customize what zones on the keyboard are lit and when. This is a limited edition keyboard with its unique design.

Razer Hypershift is a technology that allows for all the keys and keypress combinations to be remapped a second time. Use this to create complex macros, execute commands, and more. You can fully customize the whole thing with Razer's free software.

The mechanical switches are designed to last for 80 million clicks, and Razer covers the keyboard with a two-year warranty.
