@ the OP, you havent stated ur preferences? or for what purpose ur going to buy ur keyboard?
As pointed out by others... in short:
Steelseries has the Black Cherry MX mechanism, which means harder to press and not tactile and not clicky

Razer Blackwidow has the Blue Cherry MX mechanism, which means easier to press, tactile and Clicky (more loud, when u press ur keys)

But it should be noted that the Razer Blackwidow has quite a few versions depending on ur particular needs,
Razer Blackwidow Ultimate, same as Razer Blackwidow but with Illuminated Keyboard (more expensive)
Razer Blackwidow Silent, Brown Cherry MX mechanism, easier to press, tactile and not clicky

You should really have a look at this thread regarding the mechanisms if ur not sure as to which one:

All in all, what im saying is that there's no one better keyboard from the 2... it is a matter of personal preference... and for what purpose u want it... for example Blue/Brown Cherry MX mechanisms are considered better for typing than Black Cherry MX... Blacks on the other hand are considered better for games (if u lightly press a key it wont register, so less mistakes)
