Awesome keyboard! so much fun to use!

This Razer Chroma keyboard is absolutely amazing! It sounds like you're a Pro gamer when you're typing LOL! And also you can set Macro's and the lighting aswell! You can just download it and even MAKE YOUR OWN!

AMAZING!

This keyboard is a great addition to any setup! I personally love clicky switches but if you don't, choose the "orange switches" instead for a less loud typing experience. Great for gaming and has special chroma lighting presets for some of the most popular games! (in overwatch the keyboard changes colour to the colour theme that is dedicated to that hero i.e widowmaker makes the keyboard purple)

Fantastic Keyboard (especially with full Razer setup)

The keyboard is nice and easy to setup with the Razer Synapse software. Ultimately the integraded usb port and audio port was too good to pass up. The smallest downside is the light when using cap, it doesn't light up as well as it could but does not ruin the anything this keyboard has to offer. I'm using a full Razer setup for my first pc build and i would recommend it you're on a budget to consider checking it out if the price is right.

First razer key board

I've only had it for a day so far. Key caps are very loud. But other than that it's worth the money. So many color customization's and its sleek. the usb port and audio input/output is a big bonus on this guy.

Exceptional Product by Razer (as per usual)

I bought the Mamba and BlackWidow Chroma. These products are amazing. I wanted them for a very long time and now. I have saved money for a while for these and I am very happy with my purchase as the products have exceeded expectations.

Meets/exceeds all expectations

I'm truly satisfied with the Blackwidow Chroma. The mechanical keys are satisfying to click, there is a definite noise, however - this is NOT a stealth addition. I prefer this though. The extra macros are really useful and conveniently placed. There are headphone and mic inputs and an extra usb on the side. It's really a well designed keyboard containing all the features you'd hope for from many other keyboards combined into one. Of course the best feature is the Chroma, which is sophisticated using the Synapse software and it's so impressive to look at. I like how it synchronizes with my Mamba. If you're up to the cost, it's really a top choice in today's market.

best gaming keyboard

I tried getting used to different kinds of keyboards, but Black Widow suits me so well. The feel of the keyboard is amazing and you can't really ignore the stylish look. Guaranteed will get again (if it will break, lol)

Best Buy offers the best price match in Canada. The keyboard it self has an easy set up and excellent clicks.

Pretty sweet keyboard

I love the customization that this keyboard offers. I think the only thing that would make this better is if I picked up a stealth version; the green switches are a little loud but I'm sure I'll get used to them. Also I think the jacks and usb on the keyboard should be located on the back, I find it a little close to my mouse being on the right.

Chroma

it feels nice and heavy never moves when you type and the LED lights are nice and bright when playing in the dark only problem i had is the USB Mic and Headphone jacks were not working on the keyboard and typing is pretty loud sounds like a pen clicking if you're looking for a quieter keyboard go with the 2016 stealth edition it's cheaper

One of the Best Keyboards I Have Seen and Used

*This review is being typed on a Razer Blackwidow Chroma The Razer Blackwidow Chroma is a keyboard that is full of features. It can be used in any type of game. For example, it would work perfectly in FPS games and MMO games. I really like the satisfying clicky sound of the mechanical keys. Also, because it is Razer Synapse enabled, you can set macros and change certain key functions easily with no problems. This also means that this keyboard can not only be used for gaming but for productivity or developers too. The typing experience is very pleasant and easily beats other keyboards in the same price range that I have heard of and/or tried. For example, I wanted to try out a Logitech keyboard, so I ordered one (their newest one in around late 2015). The second I pressed the G key, the key cap fell off. I was very mad at Logitech and I knew they could do better, but, I still went back to my Blackwidow Chroma. Pros: •Satisfying Clicky Keys •Chroma Lighting •Macros •Razer Synapse Enabled •Numpad •Excellent Build Quality •On-Keyboard Display •Gaming Mode •Looks Very Good •I Have Had 0 Problems With It Cons: •Some People May Not Like the Font of the Keys That is all I could think of, and, it took me a while to think of it!

green vs orange

little tip for people who don't like the loud click...make sure you get the orange stealth key system as opposed to the loud green click one. it make for a huge difference

if your looking for a keyboard, look no further then the blackwidow chroma

I was a little nervous about making the purchase for the keyboard, until a found another sight that had the same product. They priced matched it. I am so glad that I bought it though because it is really, REALLY awesome. The lights are very bright and look amazing.(brighter then any other keyboard I have seen). I am able to do so many cool lighting effects. I made one half of the keyboard green, and the other side blue. When someone touches the blue side that key turns to green for a few seconds. Same with the other side. One of my favourite features yet is that it is a mechanicle gaming keyboard. It sounds SO good. I was also trying to decide between the Blackwidow x chroma and the Blackwidow chroma. I decided to go with the Blackwidow chroma (not x) because of the Jan port and headphone jack. I have found them both very helpful. I also went with it because it has brighter lights. This keyboard was expensive but in the long run, with the 60-80 million keystrokes, it's an AWESOME purchase. If you have the money this is the keyboard you want to get. P.S. I typed this on my BlackWidow Chroma keyboard.

Best Razer Keyboard!

Just got my Razer Blackwidow Chroma today to replace my Marauder which I used for almost 6 yrs. The matte finish design on the keyboard is gorgeous, the lighting effect is amazing and bright. On top of the effects Razer provide with you, they also offer Chroma workshop to either upload your own chroma effects or download effects others created. Although, this is a gaming keyboard but Blackwidow chroma also offers great typing experience. Although this is a great buy, but i think it is a bit pricey at [price]. I would definitely recommend this keyboard when the price drops.


  • from Toronto, ON

Very nice gaming keyboard

Pros: Looks gorgeous, lighting is highly customisable, feels solid and well constructed, satisfying 'clicky' keys Cons: Keys are a bit light to the touch and with a high activation point - good for games, but makes it a little awkward for typing documents - can probably be overcome with ongoing use and adapting to the feel of it. The keys are also stupidly loud - don't use this if you share an office with someone as they might want to break the keyboard over your head.

Works Wonders

I got this keyboards for Christmas from my girlfriend. and well.. it works wonders!!! I LOVE that you change any key you want to be any colour you want or any brightness you want.. plus the fact that i can have as profiles for certian games with the main keys for each game lit up. if you have the RAZER MAMBA gaming mouse, and the RAZER KRAKEN 7.1 virtual surround sound all the colours can sync together. its VERY cool. having this keyboard made me want the RAZER MAMBA Tournament edition (wired not wireless)

I've been using this keyboard for over a month or 2 really good keyboard! I love the customisation and the dedicated macro keys! I think this keybaord is really worth the money!

Great For Any Scenario

This keyboard is great for all gamers and can suit your needs for any genre of game. Whether it be an MMO, RPG, FPS, etc. Razer has got your back. I recently purchased one of my own after owning the Corsair K70 and feel that the Razer BlackWidow Chroma is the FAR superior keyboard in look and features. Although the keyboard does have a more plasticy cheapish feel, it beats out the corsair in looks, sound, customizability, and gameplay. Overall, I would recommend the keyboard to anyone looking for a solid, affordable, and customizable keyboard that can fit in to any gamer's set-up.

Best Keyboard money can buy

This is a great keyboard, and a whole lot of fun as well. Very easy to setup and I love the on the fly Macro Recording. Best money I have ever spent on a keyboard. You will love the mechanical keys if your a hardcore gamer! Very easy to set up profiles for games, light fun. Don't pass this one up!


  • from Surrey, BC

Worth It!!!

This is my 3rd Razer product, and overall I'm very pleased. The layout and loud keyboard clicks can be a little tough to get used to at first, but once I got comfortable with the keyboard I found both aspects very helpful. The colouring options are amazing, and I found the pre-loaded colour settings very helpful, especially when learning new controls for new games. Yes, it can be price-y (even I thought it's very overpriced) but overall, to me, it's worth every penny.


  • from Saint Catharines, ON

Great keyboard

Love the immense customization with Razer Synapse with all different color effects you can have on the keyboard. Very nice to type on and the "clicky" sound that everyone loves is very satisfying. Has all the features you'd expect with a high end keyboard; macro keys, custom lighting, high activation point for the keys and overall good quality/durability. The price was a bit expensive considering that this keyboard is basically the same as other Razer keyboards except is has chroma lighting. Good keyboard but for a high price.

Razer BlackWidow Chroma. Quite a *Godlike*.

This is my first time buying a mechanical keyboard, well at first, razer was already my choice since of the fame of the product and it also made me think that the fame probably made the company efficient with the supports they give to buyers like me. My experience? Oh hell it was hard for me to get used with it. But here I am using Razer BlackWidow Chroma with no regrets and I am really amazed with the performance it gives the user. It was hard for me to get used with it but it was and is definitely worth having this keyboard.

Excellent quality; Endless possibilities.

As I hack away at my newly acquired keyboard while writing this review, I find myself more and more pleased with the product. I've owned other brands of keyboards in the past such as the Corsar K70 RGB mechanical keyboard, which used Cherry MX switches for their keys, and I can honestly say that Razer's mechanical switches offer a much better gaming experience. The shorter key actuation makes everything feel much more responsive, giving you the edge on the battlefield. The amount of customization the Blackwidow Chroma allows is incredible. I've never been more happy with a peripheral purchase before the Blackwidow Chroma.

Excellent Quality and Build

Do you need the chroma lighting? Nope. Do you want the chroma lighting? You sure do. That aside, the quality of this keyboard is amazing. Typing on it is a fun and satisfying experience. The ability to customize for gaming puts this keyboard over the top. Highly recommended!

A light extravaganza

The Razer Chroma is a keyboard I have owned for about a week now, coming from my previous keyboard the Razer Blackwidow which I spilt Iced Tea on and broke, depressing I know.(Is Iced Tea resistance an option for keyboards?) Regardless, I purchased this keyboard and have nothing but good things to say, the main feature of the Chroma is the seemingly endless combinations of different lighting possibilities, it really allows you to add your own personal flare to your desk. The signature switches of the keys offer a tactile feel and quick responsiveness, accompanied by the ever so satisfying click of a keystroke. Good for up to 60 million individual keystrokes or a good spill of Iced Tea, the Razer Blackwidow Chroma out preforms the competition in every aspect and has the price tag to go with it. While on the expensive side, the quality and durability of the Razer name is perfectly embodied here. Another home run from our Razer boys in Singapore.

The only con so far is that it only has colour template settings for a couple of different games.

Great keyboard!

The keyboard has a premium price tag, and for good reason. This is a great keyboard for gaming and typing in general. If you are not used to mechanical keyboards it takes some getting used to, but once you do... you won't go back. Lighting is very good Software is easy to use Great build quality Exceptional features (USB pass through, headphone and mic plug ins) Nothing bad to say about this keyboard other than I wish it was cheaper. But I can see why it's priced as it is. Overall I love this keyboard and will be keeping it for a long time.

Great Keyboard

With tactile response, wonderful customization, and an added "feel-good" clickiness, the Razer Blackwidow Chroma is an over-all premium keyboard that is kind on the eyes and dominates enemies. PROS: Auditory Responsiveness Seemingly Endless customization options Vibrant RGB lighting Premium Feel Excellent Actuation force CONS: Price is a bit high Fingerprint attractive Depending on your environment, key strokes may be disturbing to others

Minor issues

PROS; -Looks stunning -Headphone and USB output jacks on keyboard -Perfect Size Cons; -**Function Key and volume control placement is at opposite ends on keyboard, makes on the fly volume control unnecessarily annoying... -Keys are very very very sensitive,doesnt even require a click to type sometimes, makes gaming mistakes semi common by brushing up against a wrong key. -Shift alternate keys are displayed underneath instead of on top like most keyboards and aren't lit... hard to see... -Expensive Overall; Its not bad, its not great. I'm not sure why they decided on some of the design decisions but for [the money] you want it to be perfect. Some of my complaints might not bother you at all, but there's better options available. The function key and volume control placement was a big deal for me. Will be returning it.
