I don't have this particular model, but I have a black widow mechanical keyboard and it was a great purchase - The kind that after you do it, rather than experiencing buyer's remorse, you're like, why didn't I do this sooner?

Does anyone have this ? Does the keyboard do a wave in rgb ? Or just constant colors.

I have one. You can do all of the same chroma effects as the normal black widow.

I'm tempted since I'm looking for a new keyboard, but it turns me off that it's a blops 3 edition

Nope, it uses Razer Greens which are pretty much Razer's in house Kailh Blues which are clones of Cherry MX Blues.

They're not bad. If you've used a quality keyboard with genuine, lubed Cherry stabs and solid mounting and a nice, sturdy backplate - you'll be disappointed by comparison. However, being a keyboard snob/enthusiast still doesn't make this unusuable or bad. It's a decent to good keyboard, especially if you've never owned a mechanical. I personally think if you're going to get clones, there's a plethora of cheap Amazon mechanical keyboards. $74-90 encroaches too much into the price territory where you can get a very quality keyboard but still, if you're dead set on Razer stuff or know somebody that wants a Razer keyboard, perhaps go for it.

Now it's just a matter of personal taste and size preferences. Do you like a full sized keyboard? How much desk space do you have? Do you like the Black Ops 3 branding? Etc. I think the Chroma X is much cleaner looking in terms of key cap font, the key lock indicators are nice looking and the casing is metal. Some deals do pop up if you're patient and once again - Amazon has a lot of great mechanical keyboards for cheap.

https://www.razerzone.com/razer-m...l-switches

https://wiki.installgentoo.com/in..._keyboards

Blues:
Type: Tactile & clicky switch
Tacticle: Yes, precise
Clicky: Yes
Actuation Force: 50g (60g peak force)
Key Travel: 2mm to actuation, 4mm to bottom

Greens:
Razer Green Switch
Tactile & Clicky

Actuation Force : 50 G
Travel Distance : 4.0 mm
Actuation Point : 1.9 mm
Actuation vs Reset Point : 0.4 mm

Almost no difference.

Just to keep in mind the Greens used to have quality issues about 3-4 years ago, that's mostly gone.

Corsair K70 currently $94.99 on Amazon and BB -- with the Cherry MX Speed switches. Bought one for $118 last night, then the price dropped to $99.99 and cancelled and re-purchased. It is the Red only version though FWIW
