Razer Blackwidow V3

When it comes to switches, which are arguably the most important part of a mechanical keyboard, the Razer BlackWidow V3 comes with two options:
- Razer Green – Precise, Audible, Clicky
- Razer Yellow – Smooth, Silent, Linear
The Razer Yellow switches now also feature silicon sound dampeners for an even quieter experience. Both these switches are rated for up to 80 million keystrokes.
The Razer Blackwidow V3 now also has Doubleshot ABS keycaps instead of PBT. This means that the lettering on each keycap is more resistant and will less likely wear away. These keycaps are also made to be extra thick to make them more tough and durable. The switches now also has more vibrant Chroma RGB lighting, thanks to the use of a transparent top housing.
The Razer Blackwidow V3 now also has a new multi-function digital roller. The roller, together with the media keys, can be used to control media like volume, play/pause, next/forward, and more. Apart from that, you can also reprogram to do whatever function you want with Razer’s Synapse 3 software.
To sweeten the deal, the BlackWidow V3 is now built with an improved aluminium chassis, built-in cable routing options, and an ergonomic wrist rest. There’s also Quartz colour scheme, but it is only available in the US keyboard layout only.
