Where's the best place to buy the new Razer BlackWidow?
Razer's newest BlackWidow is on sale now
Simply called BlackWidow, Razer's latest to bear its legendary keyboard moniker is a more affordable alternative to the BlackWidow Elite and is on sale now.
As we found in our review, there's not a huge amount of differences despite the lower price. You get Razer's excellent green switches, a full sized layout, Chroma lighting, and HyperShift to create secondary functions and macros on any of the keys.
Priced at $120, it's a decent bit cheaper than the BlackWidow Elite, and is a fine addition to Razer's most popular keyboard family.
Differences to the BlackWidow Elite
Sure, you don't lose much compared to the BlackWidow Elite, but what exactly are the differences. Simply put, with the BlackWidow Elite you get this little lot over the regular BlackWidow.
- A choice of green, orange or yellow switches.
- Dedicated media keys and multi-function dial.
- An included wrist rest.
To most people, that's not likely worth the extra $50 spend over the BlackWidow, making it even more of a great buy.
One of the best gaming keyboards around
There's a reason the BlackWidow has become so popular over the years, and that's because it's so good. The latest one is no exception, and aside from maybe having thrown a wrist rest in the box, there's virtually nothing to fault with it.
The BlackWidow gives a high-end gaming experience without an absurd price to go with it.
Less expensive, still a BlackWidow
This is every bit the BlackWidow experience we've come to love, which makes it a contender for your gaming PC in 2019.
