Razer BlackWidow Chroma V2 Keyboard Review

Rating: 8.0.

Razer are back with a new flagship mechanical keyboard, inventively named the BlackWidow Chroma V2. Featuring Razer's own mechanical switches, a new wrist rest and the ability to sync the lighting between all your Razer peripherals, could this be your dream keyboard? Read on to find out.

Having recently reviewed two keyboard behemoths in the shape of the ASUS ROG Claymore and the Corsair K95 RGB Platinum, it will be very interesting to see how the Razer BlackWidow Chroma V2 compares. Admittedly, it is priced around £30 less than both of those keyboards, but given it still costs £164.99 it is definitely positioned as a top-end mechanical keyboard. In this review we assess the build quality, features and performance of the BlackWidow Chroma V2 before giving our final verdict.

  1. Why does the Roccat MK FX always get left out? It has real Cherry MX Browns, full RGB lighting, brilliant easy to use software, 5 macro buttons, a built in wrist rest, is built like a tank and is almost always available for £99 every other month at a shop that rhymes with Hurrys just in case I cant advertise. It seems an absolute bargain when I see some of these recent keyboard reviews.

  2. all of this for a Razer keyboard with a wrist rest? The only reason why I have a Strafe than a BlackWidow was because my Strafe came with a wrist rest, and I bought it 18 months ago
