Half a month ago, Razer introduced a lineup of wireless accessories, including the DeathAdder V2 Pro mouse, BlackShark V2 Pro headset, and BlackWidow V3 Pro keyboard.
Though some are only new wireless versions of existing products, Razer didn’t feature a wired version of the BlackWidow V3 Pro.
That just changed, as the BlackWidow V3 was announced!
About The Keyboard
The new keyboard would feature Doubleshot ABS keycaps with thicker sidewalls that improve the keys’ durability.
Also, the double shot molding process is useful because the keys are now engraved in the keycap instead of being printed on top of them, so that they won’t wear away, even after “thousands of hours of use.”
The mechanical switches received an upgrade with extra sidewalls for better stability.
The switches also received a new, transparent housing that allows light to shine through easier, making the RGB Backlight brightness considerably better than previous models.
As for the switches, the keyboard is available with Razer Green switches, which have a pleasant, clicky feel, or linear, Razer Yellow switches.
One of the details that are notably different from the BlackWidow V3 Pro is media controls.
The wired variant features a single button and a roller that you can use to adjust volume, skip tracks, scroll, modify brightness, and so on.
The V3 also features cable routing options in the chassis, a wrist rest, at least in the full-fledged variant.
The BlackWidows V3 can also be purchased in a tenkeyless configuration, which removes the numpad and the media controls used to sit on top of it.
Also, that variant doesn’t feature a wrist rest, and the Doubleshot ABS keycaps are featured only on the U.S keyboard layout. In contrast, the complete variant has them in other regional arrangements.
