this is actually just the newegg 20% sale on all product not just the keyboard.

Must have been set as a 3 day coupon. Probably expired at midnight PST.

Yup, coupon is no longer working.

I must say this keyboard is quite good for the price. Certainly better than the Adesso I had which cost more. I can see some areas where they cut the corners, namely the legs and the injection process for the keycaps, notably larger area use for injection than on the Filco's keys. Does it actually affect anything? No, it just makes the caps look a bit cheap if you take them off and flip them over.

The keycaps have a slightly different profile than the Filcos as well, but not much. And it does have a slightly lower sound than the Filco... softer sounding almost.

I don't like the keycaps on BW. Do you think its the "rubbery coating" or its made from something different from ABS and PBT?

I thought only the BW Ultimate had the rubbery coating?

The basic doesn't have the rubber coating from what I can tell. The keys are highly textured though, which is kind of nice and feels pretty good on the fingers from what I'd say. And might not be as prone to getting shiny like the Filco keys love to do (looks at Filco with look of disapproval)

Does this suffice, Ripster?


The thickness looks to be the same as the Filcos, but that was just eyeballing them back to back. I don't have a set of calipers around or I'd measure it out.

Also, those are mm on the ruler.

Yeah they are fairly high contrast. The background is some white mat board (I couldn't find my grey card) that I tried to do some white balance around.

The profile is a little different on the Razer as well. I put on the Filco WASD keys and they sit at a slightly different angle.

Also, those wondering about the Razer logo light; it's brightness can be toggled with the fn+f12 key, including turning it off and making it pulsate. Very important for gaming, clearly.

Also the 7 key on the numpad is setting my OCD off. It is slightly more to the left (the legend for the 7) to make room for "home" next to it. Why they didn't put it below the 7, who knows.

I only get pissed at douchebag OCN moderators who accuse me of lying about the ownership of pics.


BTW be careful about the Terms of Service at OCN for content.  And since it's a advertisement driven site with salaried people I'd be careful.



Not that I think a book on keys would be a big seller but  my lego pics are dear to me.


Good to know, how is crap like that even legal?  According to that clause, if you designed keycaps like clickclack and didnt copy-write them, and posted pictures of them on OCN, they could take it, mass produce it and sell it.

To be fair, I think he simply mean that they were unaware they were [your] copyrighted images since there is no watermark.  I don't think he is accusing you of lying, if anything malicious, he is just accusing you of being a copyright *******.

And ToS usually say crazy stuff.

Not that I'm a fan of OCN or anything... I go on XtremeSystems sometimes but I guess my goals have changed.

Why get this, when you can get the M10 for just as much (or less)?  The M10 is surprisingly solid for the price, IMO.

So apparently removing a keycap voids the BlackWidow's warranty.

That's really odd, because GH always shows *very* high when searching for specific topics relating to various models of keyboards/keys/switches/etc (It's how ~I~ ended up here anywho, looking for reference material on something or other). Time for some SEO work?

That soldering job does look kinda ugly, but the keyboard works fine?  Now I want to take mine apart and see if it looks similar.  Oh well, cheap is cheap.

I think its amazing they "cherry-pick" the cherry blue switches..

But, completely skip over NKRO.

I mean don't get me wrong.. if the BW: ultimate was 80$ or maybe even up to 100$ I would think it would really be an impressive keyboard with or without NKRO.

As much as I hate to admit it, I've never had a problem with key roll over and I've been gaming a pretty long time..

On the flipside... without NKRO it just looks week compared to other keyboards at the same price range..

And they act like "cherry-picking" blue switches is going to somehow redeem the board..

When the truth is.. it isn't going to be any higher quality than any other cherry blue keyboard...

I've never worried about optimizing geekhack for the various search engines.  There are usually a dozen or so search engine bots fondling geekhack at any given time, and vB is reasonably friendly to them.  

Those that care about keyboards will find us.
