Yup, Razer has yet another updated product for gamers! This time, the Razer BlackWidow is getting improved key switches, media keys, a refined chassis, and new DoubleShot ABS keycaps come to the popular gaming keyboard. And it’s getting a new Quartz colour option and a tenkeyless version to boot!

“With the launch of the first BlackWidow, Razer created a whole new product category – the mechanical gaming keyboard. The new BlackWidow V3 now comes with a host of upgrades and improvements, whilst retaining the design and features gamers love, giving them a BlackWidow worthy of the legacy of its predecessors.”

Alvin Cheung, Senior Vice President of Razer’s Peripherals Business Unit.

The Razer BlackWidow V3 is available with either clicky Razer Green Mechanical Switches or silent linear Razer Yellow Mechanical Switches. The switches also have a new transparent housing for brighter Chroma RGB lighting. In addition, the keyboard now comes with DoubleShot ABS keycaps which are stronger and more durable. With the lettering molded into the keycap, you never have to worry about it fading or rubbing away.
