first_img Finally, Razer Is Making a Gamer ToasterGeek Pick: Razer Blade Stealth Is an Ultraportable Dream Gaming PC Stay on target Like a beloved car, there are a lot of necessary pieces you need to make a computer go. And if you really care about that computer, like if you use it to compete in high-stakes gaming tournaments, you really care about those necessary pieces. From mice to laptops to headphones, Razer is one of our favorite purveyors of those pieces, and now they’ve launched yet another. The Razer BlackWidow Tournament Edition Chroma V2 is a gaming keyboard that can withstand tournament-level typing.For a fighting game like Injustice or Street Fighter you want a good arcade stick. For a shooter like Overwatch or PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds you want a good mouse or at least a controller with very precise analog sticks. But for an eSport like Dota 2 or League of Legends you want a keyboard that can withstand and translate constant furious typing as you mash hotkeys and perform hundreds of actions per minute.The Razer BlackWidow Tournament Edition Chroma V2 wants to be that keyboard. The three different mechanical switches (Yellow, Orange and Green) let users choose between silent and clicky tactile keys. But no matter which color, Razer boasts their “Instant Trigger Technology” can deliver rapid speeds with virtually no delay between your action on the keyboard and the computer’s response.Again, these games are about doing lots of typing very quickly, so the fast 1.2mm actuation point of the Yellow switches in particular sounds very appealing indeed. They also last for 80 million keystrokes, which should get you through more than enough intense StarCraft matches if you don’t live in Korea. Other perks include an ergonomic wrist mount, a braided USB cable, and customizable backlighting with over 16 million glowing colors.The Razer BlackWidow Tournament Edition Chroma V2 is available now for $139.99. I can’t wait to use it to finally impress Mavis Beacon after all these years.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img read more
