Product on Review: Razer Blackwidow Tournament Edition Chroma V2
Street Price: £139.99 / $139.99
Back in May, we tested the Razer Blackwidow Chroma V2, the full sized brother to today’s test piece; this landed our Gold award for a variety of reasons. Today we take a look at the Razer Blackwidow Tournament Edition Chroma V2 (That’s quite a mouthful!), a cut-down, eSports focussed version of that very same keyboard.
Sporting a 10-keyless design, Razer Chroma RGB backlighting, removable USB cable, a choice of 3 different, Razer designed, mechanical keys and an ergonomic wrist rest, Razer has gone all-out with the key features for a gaming keyboard.
The sample provided by Razer also features the new Razer Yellow mechanical keys, these are advertised as linear and silent, almost as a direct competitor to Cherry’s Speed Silver key switches. The Razer Yellow mechanical switches are rated to 80,000,000 actuations which should be absolutely unachievable under even the most extreme of usage scenarios.
Razer can, without doubt, be referred to as a class-leader in the peripherals market. Its products are used all around the world by millions of customers but does that kind of user-base guarantee performance? We’ll put the Tournament Edition Chroma V2 through its paces, compared side by side to the Chroma V2 and see how it fares.
