I've been really keen on getting one of these, not sure if I should go the mile for ultimate over normal version as I'm a bit strapped for cash atm =(

Anyway let us know what you think of it, I may get one too.

It is a superior product to the Razer BlackWidows because Razer used iOne as their OEM and the Das Model S uses Costar who also manufactures the CST-104 which is the foundation for keyboards like the Filco Majestouch boards as well as that new Rosewill RK-9000.


He's making fun of anyone who is a District Manager at Best Buy by calling them a "Distract" Manager. I don't know what he's trying to say by it, but meh - he's just another person making fun of Best Buy (but I don't blame him).

My black widow is new and has a partly stuck key (I mean mechanically), I'm still waiting for the RMA authorization.

But other than that I found incredibly misleading the inverted lower/upper case stamps on the keys, I can live with the stupid fonts printed on the keys but not with the inverted symbols (I haven't noticed that before buying).

I thing that a keyboard has to be comfortable, and conformable doesn't mean just the tactile feeling...

I can live with inverted symbols as I touch type so I never look at the keyboard.

But how do you find the button pressing and speed of typing in general? Is it good? worth purchasing?

Don't buy razer the build quality is poor. The keyboard will wear out, within the year you will start having issues with it.

Actually is the T key.

BTW i'll just return it, I bought it because the ISO layout unavailable on most mechas, but this feature is not enough to balance the drawbacks.

The BlackWidow is not like the rest of their keyboards; this keyboard will actually last a long time. Unfortunately, when it's compared to other mechanical keyboards, it's just a mediocre one. However, when it's compared to the rest of Razer's rubber dome lineup, it's certainly a superior product (and it's a bit unusual for Razer).

Besides, we don't know how long this keyboard will really last because it hasn't been out long enough!

Never tried any other Razer keyboard other than the MS branded "Reclusa".

It was a bit bulky but was a really good keyboard, I have heavily used it for more than a year w/o any sign of wear and w/o loosing its initial tactile felling which was very good.

I sold it for a Sidewinder X6 (I was attracted by the handy form factor) and was really a stupid move.
