Razer BlackWidow Tournament Edition Chroma Keyboard V2 Review

Others/Mice & Keyboards by stefan @ 2017-11-04

With the BlackWidow Tournament Edition Chroma V2, we have conducted several gaming sessions in Secret World Legends, Black Desert Online, Kritika Online, Wolfenstein II The New Colossus and we were very happy about the key response time that is very similar to the CHERRY MX Speed switches. Other benefits of using this keyboard is its compact chassis, that leaves more room on the desktop, but also you will be able to keep the mouse even closer to the frequently used gaming keys. By using an actuation distance of just 1.2mm, you might need some time to adjust while doing regular office work such as writing documents, but after some time you will realize that this keyboard is great for such activities as well.

Packaging, A Closer Look Part I

In this article we will concentrate our attention upon another interesting peripheral from Razer, the BlackWidow Tournament Edition Chroma V2! Yep, a pretty long name for a gaming keyboard but in one way it explains the series it comes from (BlackWidow – self-explanatory; Tournament Edition – its compact format; Chroma – proprietary RGB lighting available via software; V2 – since it is the second revision of this type).


The product is shipped inside a medium-sized cardboard enclosure, with the usual Razer theme all-around:




On the top right corner, the manufacturer does remind us that a wrist rest is included with the product, along with support for the well-known Razer Chroma:




The BlackWidow Tournament Edition Chroma V2 is currently shipped with two different switch types:


-Razer Green Switch – Tactile and Clicky / 50G actuation force

-Razer Yellow Switch – Linear and Silent / 45G actuation force




On the side of the packaging, we will be able to spot the list of box contents, along with the system requirements, approximate size and weight but also the dimensions with the wrist rest:




The keyboard main features are explained in more detail on the bottom enclosure area, along with a comparison between the Razer mechanical switches:




After unsealing the box and lifting the top cover, we will be able to spot the main product right away, which does also include a transparent dust shield (great addition in our book):




The underside layer, will also reveal the documentation:




We are receiving a small leaflet with links to online resources, the User Manual but also two nice Razer stickers:




Razer does explain the installation procedure in more detail, but also explains the additional functions of the keys:
