Razer Black Widow Ultimate 2014 Edition

Review Razer BlackWidow Ultimate 2014 Edition Specification and Feature - Razer was always a vigorous company but lately it has surpassed our most ambitious predictions by constantly releasing new products. Some may call this a redundancy but we call it an inquiring mind/intellectual curiosity.

I'm Renata and this is the Razer Blackwidow Ultimate 2014, the latest member of the Blackwidow series that brings a very important upgrade to Razer's keyboards. There's really not much to say about the retail package. It comes in the usual green/black color combination and contains a Razer sticker set, some manuals, designer notes and the keyboard itself.

I've used Razer Blackwidow Ultimate 2013 everyday for work, gaming and pretty much for daily tasks. It's time to see if its successor can take its crown. The first thing we noticed is that there are no noticeable design changes. Its beautiful matte surface in combination with its crude build and round edges are still there.

Some small design changes would have been nice so that consumers can understand which model they're buying. Moreover, I would really like it if Razer lowered the position of the rest pad even though it comes down to personal taste.

The keyboard can be connected to your PC via a gold plated USB cable and it also offers a microphone port, a headphones port and a usb port. The cables are not that flexible but they are covered in textile fibers which makes them quite prestigious. The back of the keyboard features two leg stands and five rubber stoppers so that your keyboard won't slip.

The keyboard we tested is universal so don't worry about it not having greek characters when you buy it. The left side features the macro keys while the media keys reside on the top part of the keyboard with the profile change buttons situated on the right. All customization options can be easily changed through Razer Synapse 2.0.

Earlier on we referred to a big improvement over its predecessor. Razer has designed the world's first mechanical gaming switches and has implemented them to the Razer Blackwidow Ultimate 2014. The Razer Green Switches offer a more tactile feeling during pressing. However, they are still loud.

After hours of testing, we found that the new Razer Green Switches do need a little bit more pressure in order to be activated which makes them excellent for gaming since gamers have a better feedback. Also, according to Razer they can withstand up to 60 million keystrokes.

Last but not least, the Razer BlackWidow Ultimate 2014 features green LED backlighting in each key which deactivates when you turn off your PC unlike the 2013 version. The Razer BlackWidow 2014 will be available at the end of April at the price of €140. A cheaper version with no LED backlighting will be also available at €99.

Even though the new Razer Green Switches do change the overall experience, we strongly believe that there is no valid reason to upgrade to the 2014 version if you're an owner of the Razer Blackwidow Ultimate 2013. But gamers that are looking for a new keyboard will definitely find a lot in the 2014 version.
