Feel the Difference
The Razer BlackWidow mechanical gaming keyboard was first launched in 2010 and quickly became the most popular and highest selling gaming keyboard worldwide, making its mark as the primary choice for eSports athletes.
World's First Mechanical Switch Designed For Gaming
Four years later, the Razer Mechanical Switch was introduced, giving the Razer BlackWidow an even greater advantage with the world's first mechanical switch designed from the ground up specifically for gaming. This enabled gamers to take their skill to the next level with more speed and precision than ever before. By redefining the limits of performance, this elite mechanical gaming keyboard left the competition in the dust, even faster than before.
Color it Up
Now with Chroma customizable backlighting, this gaming icon is raising the bar once again by introducing individually controlled multi-color backlit keys that allow for extreme customization. Bearing the distinct Razer BlackWidow design, the Razer BlackWidow Chroma gives you the unbridled freedom to truly express yourself, not just with an impressive spectrum of colors but with personalized lighting controls as well.
Inter-device color synchronization
Whether it's your favorite shade of green or your guild colors, Chroma gives you the freedom to decide. It could be one, three or even thirty-seven colors, with a spectrum of visual effects featuring 16.8 million colors; the possibilities are whatever you can imagine. With inter-device color synchronization, your Razer Chroma enabled Razer gaming weapons will always go together perfectly.
Greater durability
No matter how intense your gaming marathons get, each Razer Mechanical Switch is engineered to withstand up to 60 million keystrokes, so you'll enjoy the Razer advantage for longer.
Razer Chroma SDK
All Razer Chroma enabled devices come with an open SDK that will allow game developers to take advantage of the multitude of lighting options available for Chroma by integrating these advanced lighting effects to create in-game lighting alerts or actions per minute lighting features.
Chroma backlighting with 16.8 million customizable color options
The Razer BlackWidow Chroma features individually programmable backlit keys with 16.8 million color options, all easily set through Razer Synapse. From preloaded lighting effects for different types of games, to your own custom uniquely programmed palette of colors, you can effortlessly enhance your gaming experience in a way that is unique only to you.

Rating: 5/5 Amazing Keyboard For Any Use August 15, 2015 As the title says this keyboard is amazing no matter what your use of it is. Despite it being optimized for gaming it can be a very beautiful and sleek office supply. The response time is amazing and the ability to download and use other people's creations of color effects is phenomenal. The colors are more vibrant and bright than any other RGB lit keyboard I've ever seen. This keyboard does have some very slight flaws though, however, they do not take away from the rest of the keyboard. The only flaws I seem to find for myself personally is how abnormally high the escape key is and how all your indicator lights (caps lock, scroll lock, etc.) are only very dimly lit through the top right of the keyboard. However, the addition of a gaming mode and 5 macro keys is amazing. Lastly, the Razer Synapse program is extremely easy to pick up and use with almost no learning curve which is good when compared to Corsair's difficult to use drivers for their k70 RGB.

I would recommend this item to a friend!
