We had similar options, I went with Razer Black Widow Ultimate which was cheaper than the 6Gv2.

Then the 6Gv2 is an awesome buy, in my place the 6Gv2 is more expensive than the Black Widow Ultimate and no warranty after purchase.

6Gv2 is a better board all around. It doesn't have Macro's or backlighting, but it also is not filled with the number of quality check problems that Razer has. Nor the limitations.

Its a Awesome board if you get one with out any problems.

Mine is the first batch black window ultimate because i preordered and i haven't had a single problem with it and the keys still look good and feels just the same as it did when i first got it. And i game heavy on it.

Every company will have its ups and downs.

And this board replaced my xarmor x9bl which is on my server getting used now now, Do i miss NKRO? Nope i just prefer the build quailty and the sound and the feel of it more than the xarmor x9bl for my main keyboard.

I tried the 6Gv2 at my local store i didn't like the switchs at all. I just love my blues And don't like the look at all which if i wanted a plain keyboard i would've just got the mother of all keyboards model M. Which im planing too get in my collection.

I have recently purchased a Razer BlackWidow, not the ultimate version.

My reasons for this purchase are;
- In Australia it is only $97 from MSY store, BW Ultimate being $145 and I'm not willing to pay an extra 50 odd bucks for some usb port and backlighting.
- All other mechanical keyboards are close to $200, if not $200+ to buy in Australia or to be shipped into the country, which is double the price of my keyboard

My thoughts after 2 days of owning it so far;
- first day of using it I didn't really feel much difference between it and my old $30 rubberdome keyboard. Had second thoughts about purchasing such an expensive keyboard.

- second day of using it I noticed I typed somewhat faster now, went on typeracer.com and now averaging 130wpm compared to rubberdome averaging 115wpm. So I guess it helps me to type faster. I use to rarely hit the 130's now its very regularly.

- Just plugged my old $30 rubberdome keyboard back in, and my goodness...the feeling of typing on it was so rubbish. I seriously cannot go back to average keyboards anymore =P

- Read a lot of reviews about the clicky sound that Cherry MX Blues makes. In my opinion, if you type really slow then it may be an issue for noise freaks. But, if you type fast and use to typing fast...the noise issue won't be a problem at all as the clicky sound is mixed in with the sound of your keys hitting the bottom of your keyboard. In fact, the sound of the keys hitting the base of the keyboard is somewhat louder than the clicky sound itself, although it may just be me pressing keys harder than the average person.

- Having all programmable keys + extra macro keys on this keyboard is an advantage that I actually prefer over other mechanical keyboards as I am an MMO player, don't really play anything other than MMO though.

-You've probably noticed already that the F-keys are moved a bit to the right, may be an issue for players like Warcraft III where you need F keys to control your heroes. You can always program the F1-3 keys to your side macro buttons M1-3 though to see how that works.

-As for the glossy surface of the keyboard that gets fingerprints: I'm usually in a dark room playing games so it's hard to notice. But I regularly wipe all my technology including monitor screen, webcam face etc anyway. If you love taking care of your technology, it shouldn't be a problem. But if you're the person who never cleans anything and leaves dust to build up here and there, it may be an issue for you =)

edit: I've just noticed, I only get slight palm prints at the bottom end of the keyboard (below ctrl/alt/space keys) where my palm sometimes rests, all other area of the keyboard doesn't have fingerprints as I never touch it with my fingers? I mean why would you anyway.

Hope my opinion helps anyone into making a decision purchasing this keyboard. As for the issue of people saying Razer products breaking down often, well I've only had it for 2 days now...so can't really comment on that issue. But if it does break down, I'll be sure to let you guys know!

Very nice review.

Do you think it's better than the 6Gv2 ? (same price)
