New Razer BlackWidow Steath Edition Goes All Ninja

Stealthy like a ninja is how Razer USA President Robert Krakoff describes their new mechanical gaming keyboard. The Razer BlackWidow Stealth Edition comes in both a Standard and Ultimate varieties, with different features on each. These are both marked improvements over the original BlackWidow, both in tactile feel, response time and how quiet the keyboard is overall. The Ultimate Stealth Edition also has pretty hefty anti-ghosting, allowing up to six key presses simultaneously.

I personally just love the look and feel of Razer products, and this keyboard is no different, with the cool backlighting and all. Makes me just want to sit alone in the dark staring at World of Warcraft for 12 hours straight. No, I don’t do that (on a regular basis, anyway), who do you take me for?

Mr. Krakoff explains, “Quieter feedback on the keys, lighter actuation force, extreme anti-ghosting on the Ultimate version, and a new matte black finish make the Stealth Edition of the Razer BlackWidow keyboards the best choice for the unassuming but extremely deadly gamer.” Hit the break to check out the feature package for both versions of the keyboard.
