The Blackwidow is wonderfully straightforward in terms of key layout and functions. There are only 5 multi-function keys (fully-programmable using Razer's Synapse software) and a full-sized number pad. The media control functions must be activated by pressing and holding down the FN key. This is different than many keyboards where the media controls are either direct access, or usable sans the FN key. My former keyboard, Microsoft's excellent Sidewinder X6, had analog-style knobs to control volume as well as keyboard lighting. For me, this remains the most elegant solution...
This being a Chroma version of the Blackwidow, I would be remiss if I didn't mention the RGB lighting effects. Bright, vivid and dramatic, they really make this keyboard stand out from the rest of the premium/gaming category. Both Razer and Corsair have the most powerful RGB features on the market, with both companies lighting each and every individual key. But what sets Razer apart is that they use a white membrane to "back" the keyboard switches, making the lighting effects much more powerful and giving the colors added "pop". The Synapse software may not be as customizable (currently) as Corsair's, but it far easier to use in both customizing the lighting effects, and more importantly, customizing the key functions as well as setting up user and gaming profiles.
So, there you have it. The Razer Blackwidow Chroma is an excellent choice as a premium keyboard that can satisfy the PC gaming/enthusiast crowd. The construction and parts used are first-rate and the Chroma RGB lighting is best-in-class, IMHO. If you're looking for a keyboard to compliment that high-end, custom PC rig you've built (and want performance to match it's looks), you should have the Blackwidow Chroma at the top of a very short list...
To start off, the keys have a nice clicky noise when you use them. And the keys push back into your fingers letting you type rather quickly.
This model also has light up keys that can display pretty much any color you want, with a series of cool animations to pick from.
This keyboard also has 5 macro keys that can easily be programmed to do what ever you need. I use emacs a lot and the macro keys have become rather helpful.
And while razer does not seem to support linux out of the box, (The keyboard still works, it just lacks a lot of its special functions.)
There are some neat opensource libraries that let you use the keyboard to it's full potential.
So if you have the money, I'd recommend getting this keyboard.
This is my second BlackWidow keyboard, and although my first one had Cherry MX Blue switches, these Razer Greens are pretty great. The click different makes a different sound, but they seem to be just as accurate with similar actuation as my BlackWidow 2013. The only complain I have is that it has taken quite a long time break in some of the keys in the few weeks that I've had this keyboard, with my backspace key still feeling a bit stiff, although according to the Razer configurator, it is one of my least used keys.
The configurator (Razer Synapse) that works with this and all Razer products keeps getting better. When it was first released it was a mess to work with and made it difficult to configure even their non-RGB hardware. At this point, it is probably the best option on the market as far as customization. Although it's not as robust as the Corsair configurator, it is actually easy to use and doesn't require reading a 100+ page manual in order for you to use it. Very easy for you to set up your own profiles and lighting to your liking. You can even download profiles from the Razer forum.
It's only been a few weeks with this keyboard, but I'm glad I didn't listen to the haters and picked it up. Will update review if there's any problems in the near future.
