Razer Launches Silent BlackWidow Stealth & BlackWidow Ultimate Stealth Gaming Keyboards

Razer believes that not only is PC gaming not dead, it can continue to get better, in this case through the use of the silent versions of the Razer BlackWidow Stealth or Razer BlackWidow Ultimate Stealth mechanical gaming keyboards.

These new peripherals offer mostly the same specs and features as the originals, but with two notable exceptions: silent keys with 45g actuation force and extreme anti-ghosting (up to six keys can be pressed simultaneously, Ultimate Stealth model only).

Razer BlackWidow Stealth

Robert “RazerGuy” Krakoff, President of Razer USA, puts it in a nutshell while also taking home the gold star for Best PR Quote Of The Week: “Where the first Razer BlackWidow can be likened to a barbarian ploughing through enemies with ease, the Stealth Edition of this mechanical keyboard is the ninja who sneaks up on opponents unexpectedly to take them down in a quick blur.”

Both of the new keyboards feature 1000MHz/1ms Ultrapolling response time, programmable keys with on-the-fly macro recording, 10 customizable software profiles with on-the-fly switching, a gaming mode option for deactivation of the Windows key, 5 additional macro keys, and multimedia controls.

The Ultimate Stealth version also boasts the extreme anti-ghosting feature as well as individually backlit keys with 5 levels of lighting, an audio-out and mic-in jack, and a USB passthrough.

You can snag yourself one of these puppies today online exclusively at www.razerzone.com for $79.99 (BlackWidow Stealth) or $139.99 (BlackWidow Ultimate Stealth).

Price isn't too shabby...I'm overdue for a new mouse and keyboard. Perhaps I'll look a little more into these.

Eh. While this intrigues me, I'm happy with my current mouse and keyboard setup.

yep the price seems pretty good and may wait to see how they review. Interested in a more tactile feedback [touch] with the mechanical keyboards, esp for day to day use .and if silent could be just the thing.
