abunda_amazon_reviews I got this keyboard in the evening, unboxed it, tested it, and then requested return the next morning. It's a very nice keyboard. Hardware quality it pretty decent. It could have been a 5-star rated keyboard. I'm making it a 1-star because the CONS (software) defeat all the good things about this mechanical keyboard. PROS: * Pretty-self explanatory. I'm not going to elaborate much on the advantages/positive attributes. For the most part, it speaks for itself. Just watch any YouTube video review. CONS: * Cable management can be better. Wire does not stick to it's molded path, but deficiencies in software/drivers are much more serious, which leads me to.... * Synapse 3 software is a bloated mess. About ~250 MB to download, depending on what modules you install AND it requires creation of an online "cloud account" just to configure lighting, settings, and so on. * Razer advertises an on-board memory feature where you can save up to 4 profiles created into synapse right into the keyboards internal memory. In theory, this lets you switch between profiles without Synapse on other computers. In theory, this means you can change settings on-the-fly on other OSes. In practice, on-board profiles DO NOT include color/lighting schemes. Only macros. Internal memory is limited and pretty much non-existent. False advertising on the part of Razer. * This keyboard DEPENDS on Synapse software at almost all times. If you log-out of your cloud account, you lose your settings and it goes to factory default RGB breathe mode. If the Synapse process crashes or closes out, you lose your settings and you get reverted to factory default. Most settings don't get saved to the Razer Blackwidow Elite's internal memory. However, if you re-start or log-in to the Synapse software, your settings get restored. * Dependency on Synapse software implies poor portability. Good luck connecting this keyboard to your friend's computer or your work computer. You'll have to install Synapse. * Dependency on Synapse also means you're stuck with Windows. Razer doesn't even offer a Mac version. You're stuck with Windows. No Mac support and certainly no Linux support. * To be fair, there is an open-source project called OpenRazer that reverse engineers Razer's hardware and software so that Razer devices can work on Linux. However, at the time of this review, the OpenRazer project team has no official support for this model and it's been out for almost a year. I'm under the impression Razer complicates interoperability. * Seriously, considering how bad the software is, you might be better off with another brand of hardware like SteelSeries, DasKeyboard, WASD and others. * Again, the Synapse software is so bad that I'm vividly reminded of how a printer OEM came out with good printers, but defeated their own hardware products with terrible software and drivers totaling 250-500MB in size. * As they say, your mileage may vary greatly. But for my use case, circumstances, and workflow this is a terribly crippled product, which is why I'm returning it ASAP to resolve buyer's remorse.;;Reviewed in the United States on April 20, 2019;;1.0 out of 5 stars;;False Advertising and Razer's Synapse 3 Software Turns This Keyboard From a 5-Star to a 1-Star;;NTLDR;;/gp/customer-reviews/RVKDQ1ERKZ385/ref=cm_cr_dp_d_rvw_ttl?ie=UTF8&ASIN=B07FFCN3DJ;;;This keyboard is a dream.

Overall if you can get this keyboard on sale it would be an absolute steal, but I could easily recommend it at retail price as well. If you want THE keyboard, this one will most likely do it for you. I have had this keyboard for about a month or so now with zero issues.

This is by far the best keyboard I have ever owned, as every key is amazingly satisfying to click, without a ludicrous asking price, as I think you get your money's worth. The huntsman elite is obviously the keyboard people are gonna compare, and this keyboard is without a doubt better for the price, with USB and audio passthrough, an extremely durable chassis, and most importantly a fantastic, satisfying typing experience with the Razer green switches. The wristwrest is not the absolute best compared to others like the one included on the ornata, as it's not as big or cushioned, but it's still a fantastic wristrest. Overall even compared to other notable competitors like the Corsair k95, in my opinion if you are a gamer/typist who enjoys a simple yet satisfying reassuring click this keyboard will not disappoint. Also while I'm at it I want to share that I think these are better than cherry mx blues, as these are in my opinion better for gaming, you can look up the specs of both keys to compare but these keys are clearly the two most similar. I had a Razer ornata before this keyboard which was a very respectable keyboard for typing and speed, but I wanted to get a mechanical, and this checked all the boxes. My only real gripe with this keyboard is ease of use, even though more advanced users familiar with razers software and function layout, some new people will easily get confused and won't be able to get the most functionality out of their brand new keyboard. Overall if you can get this keyboard on sale it would be an absolute steal, but I could easily recommend it at retail price as well. If you want THE keyboard, this one will most likely do it for you. I have had this keyboard for about a month or so now with zero issues. While I may sound extremely positive because I do think this keyboard is fantastic, I will be giving it a 4 star because my media controls are not programmed correctly or something. They work, but they do not pause, play, go back and forth on tracks etc, although the media dial does work, although this may be an individual issue please keep in mind the media dial does seem to act as a c key or other depending on the game and which direction I move it, it's very wierd but I'm almost certain it's a software issue as the hardware itself works flawlessly. Besides this I have had this keyboard for about a month and had zero problems or complaints. Highly recommended! I will try to update this review if I have any problems or if I fix the media keys issue.

5.0 out of 5 stars

My best keyboard ever.
I have some experience with Razer Blackwidow Tournament Edition with green switches, but the clicky sound annoyed my wife, so I decided to buy this keyboard, because of its yellow silent switches and media keys. I like this keyboard, it looks very solid, durable, heavy a bit, but, I prefer interpret it as advantage. Back-light is perfect, I spent a lot of time enjoying it. Razer Synapse 3 is better than previous version, it is more user-friendly. I had some problems with delivery, but It is common problem for my country, keyboard was delivered from USA to Russia faster than from the UPC post office to me, but I think it is UPC problems ;)
