Switch things up with the BlackWidow X Chroma Mechanical Keyboard from Razer. The "X" line of BlackWidow keyboards has been stripped down for a more sleek and compact look while still maintaining its durability with military-grade metal. This mechanical keyboard features Razer Green switches, which have an actuation force of 50 g, and an audible and tactile click that alerts you when a key has actuated. Furthermore, it also has Chroma lighting with 16.8 million customizable color options, allowing you to customize your own unique palette of colors and lighting effects. Connect this keyboard to your system via USB and then download and register Razer Synapse in order to activate its full features and access software updates.

Razer Green Switches
Mechanical keyboards utilize a different type of key switch technology for a more durable and unique typing experience. The Razer Green Switch has an actuation force of 50 g and offers both an audible "click" and a tactile bump when pressed, letting you know that the key has registered. The "click" comes from a mechanism within the switch that triggers when the key reaches its actuation point.
Razer Chroma Backlighting
The Razer BlackWidow X Chroma features individually programmable backlit keys with 16.8 million color options, adjustable via Razer Synapse. You'll also have access to preloaded lighting effects for different types of games, to create your own custom programmed palate of colors. Lighitng effects include:

Starlight - Keys light up randomly
Wave - Light flows either left or right
Spectrum Cycling - Cycles through all colors
Breathing - Fades in and out (1 or 2 colors)
Reactive - Keys react to press
Ripple - Light ripples from set keys
Static - All keys are the same color

Razer RZ03-01760100-R3U1 reviews

BlackWidow X Chroma Mechanical Keyboard (2016 Edition) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Mac osX users need to know First off, the keyboard works and functions as a nice clicky keyboard for both Mac and Windows platforms. The Razer software Synapse does install and run under Mac OSX, but, the Synapse sub program called Chroma Configurator is only supported under Windows, not Mac OSX. This little tidbit of information is nowhere to be found on the Razer web site sales literature, at least not when I purchased this. I do not fault B&H for not supplying this important information as this was/still not shown anywhere on the Razer web site. Shown below is the email response from the razer support staff after several bug reports were filed by myself; Thanks for your support on Razer Synapse. The Blackwidow Chroma X does not have chroma configurator on OSX. Depending on the demand and feasibility, this feature might or might not be implemented. Again thanks for the feedback and have a nice day. Best regards, Razer Software Team The downside to the Chroma Configurator not being available on the Mac OSX system is that the keyboard is missing a very nice way of customizing the led's and their patterns/colors etc... On Windows 10 this all works as advertised. Good Luck...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solidly built, superb keyboard Love this blackwidow x chroma keyboard. The rgb lighting options are bright, vibrant, beautiful as you can see in the picture. Turn off the led light, and you are in Stealth mode. The almost completely dark keyboard look professional and sexy as hell. What you don't see, is that the keyboard is build upon a solid metal casing that gives it the heft and feel of quality different than other keyboards. The keys are click to give you good feedback, and require less pressure to register versus the popular cherry mx blue switch, which in my opinion is the perfect balance. I also ordered the corsair k70 lux keyboard with cherry mx blue switch for comparison since that one is also well regarded. While I like the volume control and USB pass thru on the k70 lux, I still prefer the over all simplistic yet solid design of the blackwidow X. Get one now! There will be no going back to old membrane keyboards again...ever!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High quality, solid keyboard! Buy itb This keyboard has a solid build quality to it due to full metal construction and clean design. The click mechanical switch is a dream to type on. Love the feedback amd feel I can type more confidently and faster now, since i know each click went through. Buy it, you will love it! John
