Razer Unveils New BlackWidow Tournament Mechanical Keyboard
Razer has upgraded its BlackWidow mechanical keyboard (read our review of the 2010 model here) for 2013, with improved anti-ghosting technology and the inclusion of Razer's Synapse 2.0 cloud technology, which stores your custom settings in the cloud and lets you retrieve them from any computer. Additional improvements include a new anti-fingerprint matte black finish. The BlackWidow 2013 is priced at US$99.99.
The BlackWidow Ultimate Edition, which adds a backlight to each key has also been revamped with the same anti-ghosting improvements and Synapse 2.0 technology. The backlight is also brighter and has been changed from blue to Razer's signature green color. The BlackWidow Ultimate Edition 2013 is priced at US$139.99.
Joining the lineup is a brand new 'Tournament Edition' BlackWidow, which is essentially identical to the regular BlackWidow 2013, but with the numberpad removed for a more compact form factor - making it lighter and easier to carry to LAN parties or gaming tournaments. The Tournament Edition is priced at US$79.99.
All three models also come in a 'Stealth Edition', which replaces the Cherry MX Blue switches for quieter MX Brown switches.
