How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Summary

With its dedicated macro keys and multiple profiles, there's no question that the Razer BlackWidow is a gaming keyboard. But with its mechanical-switch keys — rated for up to 50 million keystrokes — it's also a world-class tactile keyboard that will please the most demanding touch-typists. Like all mechanical-switch keyboards, it's loud, and you may end up wanting to pair it with a good gaming headset, so you can focus on the onscreen action, rather than the machine-gun fire under your fingertips. Razer also makes a more expensive, backlit "Ultimate" version, and a quieter "Stealth" edition, though we prefer the full, loud, tactile experience of this one.
