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.
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.
