Drive people nuts with Razer's new and improved BlackWidow mechanical keyboards

Type fast enough on the Razer Mechanical Switch, and you'll annoy the heck out of everyone around you

Admit it, you love the feel and clickity sounds of mechanical keyboards that drive your family, friends and colleagues nuts.

And your world comes crumbling when these mechanical keys fall apart from heavy abuse over long gaming sessions. No more, says Razer.

The gaming peripheral company's BlackWidow mechanical keyboards have been upgraded with its Razer Mechanical Switch. These mechanical switches, developed in-house, promise a lifespan of 60 million keystrokes for each key. That is a lot of WASD-ing around in games.

The improved key switches deliver precise key strokes with pinpoint accuracy and can survive long practice sessions and tournaments too.

The switches are also available to OEMs to include in their own products, even though Razer practically paid for the whole R&D process. OEMs can choose between the Razer Green, a clicky monster that attracts more attention than its silent sibling, the Razer Orange.

To get a feel of the new keys on the BlackWidow range, you can pre-order the mechanical keyboards, starting from RM269.
