deszaI bought the Razer BlackWidow Tournament Edition Stealth on a whim during black Friday for a cheap $50. It won't ship until the beginning of January so I'm reconsidering my decision.
I've never owned a Razer product and have always avoided them due to their reputation. Has anyone here used the Razer Orange Switch? I'm really curious to see if it's worth it. Note: any keyboard is an upgrade from my current.
Ideally I would like a keyboard that is great for both gaming and typing since my day is split 60/40 between work (writing) and games. Also 10-keyless. I've had my eyes on browns for a while, but I'm not sure.
So my main point is: should I test out the Razer or get a different keyboard all together? My budget pretty much caps off at $100-$120. If Razer is really just awful for mechanical keyboards what do you guys recommend? Bonus points if the best deal is on Amazon.
Never tried any of the new Razer mechanical keys, but I really don't see where the hate for Razer products comes from (besides their pretty high prices...). As Cherry said, $50 is cheap af and even if you find you are not happy with the keys, just throw it on eBay and you'll likely still manage to make a profit.
Same as Cherry again, I have a Noppoo (Choc Mini), with mx black switches. Having used both blue and browns before, I find blacks to be by far the most comfortable and 'easy-to-use' for extensive typing. Might take a week or two to get used to the extra pressure needed for each keystroke, but on the whole it just feels...better? It might just be the fact I tend to rest my fingers on keys quite a bit, but with blues and browns I tended to accidentally add keystrokes I didn't intend to...
Either way, this Noppoo is by far the best keyboard I have used and seems to perfectly fit my needs; small size (ten-keyless), full functionality of a full-size, decent build quality, black switches.
