Pros: Great keyboard for gaming
Cons: no back lighting, but not a con. I knew what I was buying.
If you are thinking about buying this keyboard and know what you want, buy it. Has an optional gaming mode to turn off the windows key(every board should have this!). Non-glossy matte finish unlike the older BlackWidow. And uses Cherry MX Brown switches for a quieter keystroke. Macro keys might be a bit close but can be removed. The selling point was no back lighting. For an additional 50$ you can get the back-lit one. Would've been a plus but for 79$ +shipping it couldn't be beat. Too sum everything up, This is the best keyboard I've owned so far. I didn't bother with the Logitechs and went straight for the best. Price to performance cannot be beaten. Razer has great customer support and their products are even better. I use a DeathAdder BA and this keyboard goes perfectly well with that. If you are a gamer, BUY IT.
