Razer Blackwidow Tournament Chroma is it worth it?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I really love TKL keyboards and i can't seem to find an RGB board in Europe. Is the tournament edition chroma worth it? Does it use the razer green switches as well?

Get a CoolerMaster TKL Keyboard, even they're better than Razer in terms of quality.

The razer chroma tournament edition uses green switches. I like mine, I had to send it out a month ago to replace the shift key that broke. Software is stable enough, not that feature packed though. It's a great product

 

The stealth is the quiet one

in terms of looks, they are  amazing. in terms of quality...not so much.

i suggest you look for a (secondhand?) corsair K65 RGB. the quality in that board is outstanding!

It goes for 170€ , the chroma i mean , finding a k65 RGB is really tricky in Europe , they are as rare as a ducky .

I Own Razer gear, personal experience with them is I hate the god awful company they are. If you start out with only Razer, younthink they are great until you go over to other companies. Save yourself the trouble and keep looking. Razer uses cheap chineese parts and switches and.. Honestly do not waste your time. I will say it again, I have a 2014 Blackwidow right kn my desk along with a Naga Hex and used to own Kraken Pros. "Pros"

I have the Tournament Edition Chroma and I've had it for about 3 months now, it's a great keyboard even with the Razer green switches.  They really don't feel much different than Cherry MX Blues.
