Razer BlackWidow V4 75%

Do you like Razer keyboards but always wished for a broader range of switches? Then you should take a good loot at the the Razer BlackWidow 75% released in August 2023. The keyboard comes with hot-swappable architecture, so you can easily replace the built-in switches without the need of soldering.

Hot-Swappable Mechanical Keyboard

The Razer BlackWidow 75% features Gen-3 Razer Orange Switches. These are tactile switches without click sound. The hot-swappable architecture of the keyboard enables you to exchange those switches with ease. With the included 2-in-1 keycap-switch puller you can simply grab the switch and pull it out, just like you would do with keycaps. The sockets support hot-swappable switches with 3 or 5 pins.

The hot-swap feature is very convenient in case you ever need to repair your keyboard – swapping out a defect switch is no hassle at all. And it becomes particularly attractive if you consider yourself a modder. You can replace the switches altogether and create a unique keyboard and get your ideas into shape. The solid build of the Razer BlackWidow 75% with integrated sound dampening is a great base for doing so.

Enjoy Gaming and Multimedia with the Razer BlackWidow 75%

The keyboard is well equipped for gaming and multimedia applications. With a polling rate of 8000 Hz, full n-key rollover, a dedicated gaming mode and fully programmable keys you are excellently prepared for demanding gaming sessions. Additionally, rich per-key lighting and 2-side underglow will ensure stunning aesthetics. All lighting effects can be configured via Razer Synapse software. Furthermore, the Razer BlackWidow 75% is packaged with a magnetic wrist rest and offers a few handy dedicated media controls, including a multi-function roller.

Razer’s debut in the world of 75% keyboards

As the name already reveals, the keyboard has a 75% form factor. This means, compared to a full-size keyboard, it essentially only lacks the numpad, all other keys are present. The keys are arranged in a rather compact way, so that it needs less space than a typical TKL keyboard. The Razer BlackWidow 75% is only about 12.6 inches long.

"With each passing year, Razer might expand into a broader range of peripherals, but it has always made world-class gaming mice and keyboards. The BlackWidow V4 range is no exception, and this compact 75% variant is an ultra-comfortable option that keeps dedicated arrow keys and throws in a modest cluster of dedicated media keys. It's not wireless, and the design is somewhat plain, but upgrades to Razer's Synapse app make it a breeze to remap buttons, and swapping mechanical switches is almost too easy."

"The Razer BlackWidow V4 75% is a good enthusiast-facing mechanical keyboard. It’s well-built and provides a marvellous typing experience with Razer’s Orange switches while also featuring good acoustics, vibrant RGB lighting and good software integration. Compared to some of the competition though, it is quite expensive."

"The BlackWidow V4 75% is one of the best keyboards Razer has ever made. Their focus on the core aspects of what delivers a great experience from a keyboard shines through in the end product. Their new 3rd generation mechanical switches feel great to type on and the stock stabilisers are much better than we've seen in previous ‘off the shelf' keyboards. Small finishing touches like the inclusion of tape on the bottom of the PCB and the use of a gasket mounting system as opposed to case mounting all combine to deliver a very nice keyboard that is a pleasure to use. We would like to see a wireless, full aluminium version in the future. "

"The latest version of Razer's BlackWidow mechanical gaming keyboard is small, with a quarter of the full-size version chopped off, but what's left is one of the most satisfying scaled-down typing experiences you can find."
