Razer’s new gaming accessories cut a few corners to bring prices down

In addition to making its RazerCare protection plans available for peripherals, Razer is expanding its lineup with a slightly more affordable keyboard, mouse and headset, which are all available today. The mechanical BlackWidow keyboard borrows several features from the $170 BlackWidow Elite. It includes Razer Synapse 3 compatibility for deep customization, such as individual key lighting, programmable macros and secondary function assignments.

The BlackWidow is a quality mechanical keyboard with plenty of options in spite of being an entry-level Razer keyboard.

PC Perspective
Looking at their early 2019 line-up, it’s clear that Razer is working to make sure gamers on a budget don’t get left behind. For $119, you get a full-size keyboard with a ton of functionality… assuming you have Synapse installed.

The Blackwidow will be my daily driver until my wife kills me because it’s honestly one of the more comfortable keyboards I’ve used and its ability to double as a blunt weapon to deter home intruders is a significant bonus.

PC Mag
The 2019 edition of Razer's BlackWidow gaming keyboard is a smart compromise for budget-conscious players, offering top-of-the-line fundamentals at the expense of some quality-of-life features we've come to expect in high-end devices.

TrustedReviews
The 2019 edition of the Razer Blackwidow ticks some boxes in its revision, but lacks what some would perceive as basic functions that are available on the majority of the competition at this price. The clicky switches, flashy lights and bright colours can't really help Razer escape from this chronic underselling of a fan-favourite.

Craving Tech
Razer BlackWidow 2019 borrows all the successful components of a BlackWidow line for gaming and has a great balance between features and budget. It doesn’t have all the bells and whistles of the BlackWidow Elite, but you’ll save $80 that you can use to grab their new Razer Basilisk Essential gaming mouse.

KitGuru
Razer’s new BlackWidow is an excellent keyboard for those who want Razer switches and Chroma lighting. There is stiff competition at this price point, though, so you can find more feature-rich boards at a similar price if you don’t mind stepping out of the Razer ecosystem.
