Razer goes silent with new keyboard

Mouse and computer peripheral maker Razer revealed their latest line-up of mechanical gaming keyboards, dubbing them the Razer BlackWidow Stealth Edition. The keyboards feature refitted keys with a keyset that offers quick access to strategic buttons, while being a lot quieter than other keyboards.

“Where the first Razer BlackWidow can be likened to a barbarian ploughing through enemies with ease, the Stealth Edition of this mechanical keyboard is the ninja who sneaks up on opponents unexpectedly to take them down in a quick blur,” said Robert Krakoff, President of Razer USA.

The Razer BlackWidow Ultimate Stealth Edition also comes with extreme anti-ghosting. This is an improvement over the traditional anti-ghosting matrix when it allows up to 6 simultaneous key presses anywhere on the keyset so your orchestra of destruction is executed in its entirety.

“Quieter feedback on the keys, lighter actuation force, extreme anti-ghosting on the Ultimate version, and a new matte black finish make the Stealth Edition of the Razer BlackWidow keyboards the best choice for the unassuming but extremely deadly gamer,” Krakoff added.
