If you're used to gaming on a rubber dome board you shouldn't have a problem with the Blues.

Though other switches like Browns, Clears, and Blacks are superior to Blues when it comes to gaming.

Because roughly the half way down the switch, it actuates. So when you go fully down and raise back up to the halfway point, you can move down again to actuate the switch.

But with Rubber dome boards, you need to push the switch all the way down. And then let it raise all the way. Which is comparatively the same as blues.

My only reason for not recommend the Razer Black Widow is that I don't entirely like the boards as a whole. The Font & rubberized coating are... not really my thing.

Razer Black Widow is not rubberized. The Xarmor is.

Then what is the coating on the keys? Feels rubber-ish, though not as thick as the coating found on mice or the U9BL.

Either way, there is a coating that I do not like.

Hmm... maybe there is a light rubberized coating. Got the info from some guy that went to the Indonesian Black Widow event but now I'm thinking he may be wrong.

I don't know if you could tell or not, but I mean "mice or the U9BL" not of. I made an edit to fix that. Typo on my part.

Either way; I purchased a Black Widow for myself, tried it for awhile. Wasn't terribly impressed. Not a bad board, but I liked the U9BL, because for the price I felt the U9BL offered more.

And writing software for the U9BL turned out to be rather easy.

I seriously do need a Digital camera. I rely to much on my cell
But if I was to buy a SLR I'd need to buy a scanner as well
Unless you mean DSLR
