Razer BlackWidow Ultimate Stealth Edition Keyboard Review
Razer BlackWidow Ultimate Stealth Edition Mechanical Keyboard Review
A few months ago Razer took a great leap into the mechanical keyboard marketplace and released the BlackWidow and BlackWidow Ultimate. We reviewed the latter and found it to be one of the best keyboards we had ever tested, becoming one of only a handful of items to ever win our Diamond award.
Of course no single product ever appeals to everyone and one of the key reasons for this is styling. While some consumers may have liked the shiny surface on the BlackWidow others would have seen it as a fingerprint magnet, always in need of cleaning. Then there are those who would not have been drawn to the blue lighting. For those that didn’t like blue Razer began offering the Battlefield 3 Edition recently with orange LEDs but they haven’t stopped there…
For consumers who prefer a more understated mechanical keyboard design than the shiny finish or clicky keys of the original BlackWidow Razer now offer the Stealth Edition. With its matte soft touch coating and low noise buttons this version of the Ultimate should open up the product to a wider market.
Packaging and Bundle
The BlackWidow Ultimate Stealth Edition arrives in a box which follows the standard Razer style. The usual colour scheme is in place and we get a clear image of the keyboard on both sides of the box with key features listed on the front. Also present is a small window which lets the consumer try the keys before purchasing. Inside the keyboard is protected by a plastic cover, other than the arrow keys.
Bundled with the keyboard, in a cardboard wallet, is the product documentation and a set of Razer stickers.
