Review: Razer BlackWidow Chroma V2 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard

Upgrading the Classic

Back in 2014, Razer launched their BlackWidow Ultimate Chroma mechanical keyboard which was an instant hit at the time as little competition in the space along with the fact that the BlackWidow Chroma was actually a great mechanical keyboard helped propel it to being one of the most popular gaming keyboards in Razer’s lineup.

Since then, Razer has launched several other Chroma based products including the BlackWidow TE Chroma and BlackWidow X Chroma, leaving the popular BlackWidow Chroma without any updates for the past few years, until now.

Razer Announces New BlackWidow Chroma V2 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard, Adds Yellow Switch Option

Razer’s BlackWidow Chroma mechanical gaming keyboard is one of our favorite mechanical gaming keyboards here at Custom PC Review and it looks like Razer is giving it a minor update for 2017.

Review: Cherry MX Board 6.0 Mechanical Keyboard

Cherry’s No Frills, Mechanical Keyboard

Up until the patents on Cherry’s mechanical switches expired several years ago, Cherry was practically the only major player in the mechanical switch space, but despite supplying most of the world’s mechanical switches, Cherry wasn’t really known for their keyboards. The reason for this is that while Cherry offered keyboards for business, industrial and enterprise applications, they did very little in the consumer space.

However, with the rise in popularity of the mechanical keyboard, it’s difficult to ignore how quickly the consumer market for mechanical keyboards is growing and given that Cherry already [...]

Tesoro, a well-established gaming peripherals manufacturer, recently demoed an unnamed ultra-low profile mechanical keyboard. Although there’re already plenty of travel-friendly mechanical keyboards that are reduced in length, a reduction of height is necessary to further improve portability.

Tesoro’s new keyboard measures just 12mm thin. Despite it’s ultra-thin chassis, the keystrokes provide the same feedback as regular mechanical switches (albeit with much shorter travel). This is similar to the Azio MK-C keyboard we saw at [...]
