We've all been there; you are trying to get your game on or work at your computer and it seems as if all the crumbs fly right in the gaps between your keyboard or you spill a drink trying to get a sip in before you respawn.

KitGuru Says: I will admit to have lost a keyboard due to clumsiness of spilling something, and while I'm infinitely more careful given that my livelihood depends on it, these boards would have saved me a lot of hassle.

Razer introduced a newly improved Razer BlackWidow Ultimate mechanical gaming keyboard to its best-selling keyboard line-up today. Each green LED is easily customizable through Razer's Synapse software, which offers a wide range of dynamic lighting effects which include: Wave, Ripple, Reactive, Starlight and more.

It can be hard keeping track of Razer's growing number of keyboards, many of which are mechanical and some of which have customizable RGB (or "Chroma", as Razer calls it) lighting, and yet others are tenkeyless (no dedicated number pad). The keyboard is said to have an 80 million keystroke lifespan and uses Razer Green Switches, which have an actuation force of 50 grams for some pretty solid clicking.

Razer redesigned the BlackWidow Ultimate to be the most resilient keyboard in its stable.

Oh the joy for we keyboard warriors!

Beyond that, it's a familiar formula: you're getting Razer's mechanical switches (the Green Switch, to be exact) with 10-key anti-ghosting and full programming support. Similar element resistance is coming to other devices as well, and the Razer BlackWidow Ultimate is an upgraded version of their popular keyboard that now has an IP54 water and dust resistance rating.
