how is this compared to the Rosewill cherry mx red/blues? I'm a student and I need it to type and not for games
The build quality on Razer products really isn't so hot, but the Cherry MX Blues are very nice for typing. Just keep in mind that if you have any roommates, they will HATE you for using this keyboard. Typing on Cherry Blues is almost hypnotic, though, and you can really get a rhythm going.

I think the Rosewill boards do have a better build quality (aside from some early models having an iffy USB plug that needed to be soldered after a while, but supposedly they have fixed that issue). The Rosewill boards themselves will have nicer keys and more solid construction, but they lack some of the bells and whistles of the Razer boards.

If you are ONLY looking for typing, I think you might be better served by a Rosewill. Choosing between Blues/Blacks/Reds is more difficult, as it is kind of a preference thing. Many typists enjoy the Blues, though. They're just really loud.

I think it was the Ultimate version that was $60, and although I'm not sure what the difference is, I think that might make the ultimate deal a better one. Rep for posting, though!

Excellent price for a full size mechanical keyboard. If I needed another I would be in for 1, thanks OP.



The Ultimate is essentially the same board plus itsback lite and I have never seen a new Ultimate drop below $80.
So the ultimate has no spyware and it's backlit? Think I'll jump on that for $20 if it comes back.

How would this compare to top non-mechanical keyboards like say, the Microsoft Sidewinder X4 which can be bought for $50?

I'm hesistant on pulling the trigger because of all these poor reviews about the bad QC and the durability. There just seems to be a lot of issues with it. I've never used a mechanical keyboard before so I won't miss anything if I don't get one. I just want a good keyboard for my house tho for gaming and typing.

mechanicals for reliability and durability.
mechanical switches have over 50 million keystroke lifespan
though the black widow's a hit/miss on that....

if you're fine with the X4, dont bother upgrading
this is really for those who want a cheap mechanical keyboard

i'd recommend a rosewill one actually next time they go on sale instead of this board frankly.
just more reliable.

Was about to get one because of the great price til I read:

FYI this keyboard uses Razer Synapse 2.0

Please read up on this issue before making a purchase. The software contains highly questionable permissions to farm info from you and may deny partial use of the product until you activate it


Tracking is exactly the reason I will never own anything Google.

Ok thanks. So if this mechanical keyboard isn't that sturdy then I guess that takes away a lot of pros of being a mechanical keyboard. I'm not in a rush for a keyboard, but it'd be nice to replace my failing 6 year old logitech keyboard. May wait out for Rosewill one then or go ahead and get that Sidewinder. Thx.
