Mechanical keyboards are high demand these days as more and more people have realized how nice they are to game on with their quick response time and keys.
Today we are going to review the Razer Blackwidow Ultimate mechanical keyboard, it will be tested in various situations and also see if it is better than the competition that we have tested in the past.

The Blackwidow is packed nicely in this quite big box, which is padded in foam. As we can see they have a opening for the arrow keys so you can feel the Cherry MX switch that is used on the keyboard. This is a nice feature since a lot of mechanical keyboards are quite loud and keys also need to be pushed harder than others.
Inside the box I also found a little envelope with various papers such as a manual, authenticity slip, etc.
The left side of the Blackwidow is equipped with five macro keys so you can program macros or other features to these buttons. They are quite handy in games where you have to use a lot of hotkeys.
