Razer BlackWidow Chroma V2 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review

Others/Mice & Keyboards by stefan @ 2017-04-17

With the BlackWidow Chroma V2 keyboard, Razer is incorporating its own technologies inside the mechanical switches, which are RGB enabled and have the advantage of the Chroma LED lighting system. The Chroma Configurator section is very easy to use compared to other brands and the effects are very fluent; depending on the effect, we can always choose miscellaneous options such as speed, width, pause, speed, angle and so on. If the current game does also support the Chroma SDK, we will get a dedicated LED effect as intended by the developers in that game mode.
