The optimized mechanical key structure found in each of the Razer BlackWidow’s keys which is coupled with a unique key actuation point halfway through the full travel distance. The Razer BlackWidow’s keys provide for greater precision and accuracy versus other traditional mechanical keyboards. One of the lightest actuation forces is also featured by the keys on the Razer BlackWidow for all keyboards.

Mechanical keyboards use a different technology to register key presses. Rather than using the common membrane and scissor-switch style key designs, each key uses its own mechanical switch underneath the cap to actuate the stroke. Mechanical keys require less vertical travel distance to register a press, and therefore add speed and accuracy for the touch typist.

Fully programmable keys are featured by the Razer BlackWidow with on-the-fly macro recording as well as five additional gaming keys.

Additionally, a new texture of backlit keys with 5 levels of lighting, 3.5” audio and microphone out jacks as well as an additional USB port.

On September 2010, The Razer BlackWidow mechanical gaming keyboard will be available at price of $79.99.
