I bought the Razer Blackwidow Tournament Edition (essentially the same thing as this) a couple of months after they stopped using Cherry MX switches and went to their own switches. Within 3 months, a couple of keys started glitching out and double or triple tapping.
I reached out to Razer who sent me a replacement in exchange for the faulty one. It took them a month to send it, and they wanted me to pay shipping! I had the new one (NOT a refurb - it was brand new in the sealed retail box) for about 2 months before it started doing the exact same thing, although with a different key. This one also had a new problem; it would randomly WHILE IN USE just "disconnect" from my laptop. It would physically be connected still but it would just "unplug" itself. I'd have to physically unplug it and plug it back in for it to start working again.
I contacted support again and they sent me another replacement. This time it only took 3 weeks but they made me pay shipping this time. Previously after arguing with them they gave in and sent me a shipping label but not this time.
The THIRD KEYBOARD IN UNDER A YEAR started having the same farking problem with repeated keypresses and losing connection to my laptop.
I called Razer AGAIN and they told me it was OUT OF WARRANTY. WTF!? I spent 3 months without the keyboard as it was flying back and forth during replacements and they never even credited my warranty period for the lost time. At this point I said screw this shit, bought a brand new one From Razer, returned the farked up one and then sold the new one unopened to somebody else. Seriously, fark Razer and their garbage products.
I ended up buying a Geezer blue switch keyboard from Amazon for $26 and the thing is still working perfectly to this day. By the way, I'm not the only person that had so many problems with Razer -- the problems I had were the complaint of a bunch of people.

I've had a Blackwidow Ultimate (2014, I think) for over two years, and I got it from a friend who had used it for a while before that, too. The only problem I've ever had is the "latch" system under the spacebar getting kind of wonky, but I get the feeling it's something I can fix if I really want to. Surely I could just get a replacement switch/key.

It uses the Razer Green switches (similar to Cherry Blue or Brown) which are very loud. I'd be interested to try Razer's Orange keys (like on this deal) sometime. Quieter for sure.

Par for the course.

I bought one of these to go in my laptop bag but, with everyone working from home, it ended up being the keyboard my wife uses for work. Had it ~6 months and no problems so far.The orange switches have good feel and are noticeably quieter than green (although still not compared to a membrane keyboard).

How does this compare to the Razer Blackwidow Tournament Edition and the Razer Black Widow Elite?

I'm not saying this isn't a good price vs retail, but this isn't a good KB, even at this price. You're If you're looking to go TKL you might as well start considering 60% boards too... and in or close to this price you can get some great options like hot swap sockets, or cases that you can upgrade later.

Non standard bottom row too... so you'll be very limited on keycap replacements/upgrades. These "gaming" peripheral mfg's should wake up and stop doing this (or consumers maybe wake up and stop buying it).

I was looking at this keyboard but upon your suggestion, wanted to look into the options you listed. Any recommendations? Looking for hot swap sockets, 60%. I have an issue with switches not registering after awhile on my Reddragon k552, looking for something higher quality.

I have a blackwidow for over a year on my main gaming computer with 0 issues so far. I have a Razer ornata for my other everyday computer I just picked up and so far I have had 0 issues with that one either. Ymmv

Keyboard threads is like a wine tasting. For some everything is just an alcohol, for others there are some hints of fruits and nuts...
