Razer Revamps the BlackWidow Keyboard Lineup

Looks like silent keyboards are making a comeback.

Razer is no stranger to gamers both casual and professional. Now, the brand wants to make your gaming experience more comfortable with new upgrades to its BlackWidow line.

Aside from an updated name – BlackWidow V2 – the Razer BlackWidow now sports new features including a magnetic wrist rest and a Yellow switch option.

The Yellow switch now comes in a more linear and silent design, allowing you to smash those keys faster than before during binge Overwatch or Call of Duty sessions.

“We’ve made improvements across the board and are still the only company designing keyboard switches made specifically for gaming,” says Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder and CEO, in a statement.

It looks like silent keyboards are making a comeback. Switch manufacturer Cherry also recently promoted its new MX Board Silent at the CES 2017.
