Razer Blackwidow V3: What's New?

Smaller keyboards have definitely become a trend in the last year, and Razer has been a company to fully hop on the bandwagon. With their newest release, the Razer Blackwidow V3, they have a tenkeyless board with their famous RGB and also their own Razer Green keyswitches.

This is a pretty average tenkeyless keyboard. Razer Green switches do not feel much different than Cherry Blues or Kailh Box Whites to me, and the RGB, while interesting, is more of a side feature. Additionally, coming in at a humongous $100, this is a hard purchase considering other, better TKL keyboards at similar or lower pricepoints. For example, the Glorious GMMK, the Drevo Blademaster TE, and even Razer's own Huntsman TE seem to be better options at this pricepoint.

The Razer Blackwidow TE V2

The other problem with this keyboard is that it is actually worse than a previous generation Razer board. The Razer Blackwidow TE V2 has the same layout, $15 more cost, same RGB, same build quality, everything. However, instead of just Razer Green switches, you could get green, yellow, or orange switches. It also comes with a Razer wrist rest, which unlike many of their other polarizing products is well-liked by almost everyone.

Overall, the Blackwidow V3 seems like a rushed product. Not much has changed at all. You know something's wrong when one of your main selling points is, "now comes with cable channels for easy cable management!". Razer has been on a roll with great products recently, which we will discuss later, but this addition is pretty disappointing.
