Illuminated Mechanical Keyboard search!

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hi Guys,

I'm currently looking for a new keyboard, but I'm having problems... reason being, it has to be illuminated and it has to be the quietest mechanical keyboard available.

Preferably I would LOVE to get the Razer BlackWidow Ultimate Mechanical Keyboard - But it's SO LOUD!

Any ideas?

Get the Stealth edition of the black widow, its the same thing but silent. My friend just upgraded to it from the regular and I can't even hear the new one.

The Stealth Edition has no back lighting.

Yes it does...

From the link on the Razer site where its listing the specs of the Razer Ultimate Stealth:

"Individually backlit keys with 5 levels of lighting
Never miss a key in the dark with the backlighting on the Razer BlackWidow Ultimate Stealth. With light intensity configurable to your preference, you can launch assaults and flank foes even under low light conditions."

Awesome thank man! It's REALLY on the expensive side but it's the only one that fits all of what I need.

Thanks again!

Urm... Ducky Shine? You can get the Brown Switches as well, which are the same as the BW Stealth and get o-rings for them. And they are made with much better quality than the BlackWidows, unless Razer actually stepped up their game as compared to their normal BlackWidow boards.

I would personally get the Corsair vengeance k90. Keyboard is amazing and is full of features. I much prefer it to the black widow.

XArmor is no longer made due to quality issues.
