The Razer BlackWidow keyboard has forever and a day been one of the most satisfying keyboards on the face of the earth. From the physical layout to the feel of the key press and incredible sound that is produces. But the market for it has been severely limited for quite some time now simply because of how LOUD it is – both in sound and style.
Well, no more! For the geek that wants the best while at the office, Razer have announced the BlackWidow Lite.
If you didn’t know any better, this bad boy would be almost indistinguishable from a stock standard office keyboard. As you can see it does have nice white back-lighting but naturally you’ll be able to turn that off should you not want to bring any attention to it.
As a gamer, this is the type of keyboard that really appeals to me in an office setting. (Prepare yourself for a first world problem) Having used very high-end keyboards and spending a lot of time behind the keys each day both at home and at work, the difference is phenomenal between the top and bottom of the market. I can imagine it’s comparable to driving a Corolla during the week and a Ferrari on weekends – not that I’d know, they don’t let me near the cars here at EFTM…
For those among us that know keyboard tech, the BlackWidow Lite is equipped with;
- Razer Orange Mechanical Switches (Silent).
- 80-million keystroke lifespan.
- 10-key rollover with anti-ghosting.
- Gaming mode (For win keys).
- Fully programmable keys.
It will also be compatible with the new Razer Synapse 3.
The BlackWidow Lite will retail for $149.95 and is now available online at the Razer store.
