BlackWidow Discontinued by razer?

post #1 of 47
Thread Starter 
So late lastnight I went to microcenters website to reserve 1 of the 2 Blackwidow ultimates they said they had in stock, there site ended up denying my reservation.

next morning I call to confirm they still have two in, guy says his computers never wrong and he's not going to go check so I asked him if he could put one on hold and he said he'd get fired for that.

so I make the 60mile round trip to microcenter, computer still says there are two in stock, but surprise surprise, none.

so I talk to the GM and he has everyone look, no go, then they say they will try to order one for me or call me if they find one or if one comes in.

I went to check there website tonight, all Blackwidows are pulled and I have an email from the GM saying that Razer has discontinued the Keyboard.

hope this hasn't already been posted.

anyone have more insight? that half dash's my hopes for a Blackwidow

It also aligns with the 48hr sale newegg had on all razer products (including keyboards)

Yeah, not sure, but I just did a quick seach on alot of smaller inventory stores and its pulling up discontinued by manufacturer out of stock on alot of them as well

So now I really wonder.

I imagine Razer's site just isn't updated yet to hurt sales on whats left, and newegg just has some in stock still.

Or it being discontinued is bogus....no idea.

When Microcenter liquidates stuff its a good indicator there won't be more. Before the 920 and 930 announcements they were going for under $200 at MC "while supplies lasted"

I'd say bogus, razer more then likely knows how much of a hit and success they could and probably would get from this.

Honestly if I had to guess I'd say there's being some kind of revision done.

but IDK, thats all the info I have.

edit: I kind of want the Deck82 with Black keyswitch's for gaming, would be awesome.
for the price of decks tho your only like 50$ away from a topre heh.
