    wonder if dust resistant improve or even fix double-click that many said caused by dirt/dust trapped in the microswitch

    also need to make note here is h2o ... so no sticky liquid (coke, energy drink) or coffee

    otherwise not sure if they run out idea or what
    but if they want, they should can make it possible since they release it first time

    Nice but... this is far from something can can be called an ultimate version...

    1. Where is the Chroma lighting?
    2. Where are the yellow and orange versions? (No 45g / 1.2mm actuation force versions)
    3. Where is the wrist rest?
    4. Where are the Macro keys on the left?

    Pass; I am pretty sure those will come down the line, don't waste your money before then.

    Junk, just like any razer product.

    I used to have the first Blackwidow Chroma. What a turd it was, really loud. Got filthy all the time and worst part was the keys would stick mid game and get you killed!

    Oh and the lack of wrist rest was ridiculous.

    Safe to say my k95 platinum is the best and I'd never buy a Razer keyboard again!

    The v2 wrist wasn't available at that time unfortunately.

    I have carpel tunnel syndrome so was the deal breaker. I used to use a small towel wrapped, to make a 'rest' but it wasn't good lol. I still use a Razer mouse though

    Actually in the past they had a few good mice. I used 2 of them but ended up going back to Logitech for 3366 sensor. Compared to the rest as of that time the 3366 feels the most accurate and stable.

    I had horrid experience with them back in the day. Keyboard, two mice, two headsets, only mouse mat works.
    Everything had buzzing, double click issues, sticky keys e.t.c.

    Never again. As an example using steelseries 6gv2 keyboard for 6th year now, and works like a charm as my daily driver.

    Perhaps Razer quality has increased, but even so it is unattractive to me with all the flashy lights and "in your face" style.

    The deathadder elite is one of the best gaming mice I have ever owned! Paired with a firefly mouse mat it is heaven lol. PC Gamer did an article recently about gaming mice and they voted it their favourite too!

    Well as a manufaturer, I wouldn't bother with Razer's products. I had a mouse once, didn't even last two years with pretty average gaming use, still cost the same as a Logitech (around 60$), which lasts double that time easily, and had better software. That all happened a few years past though, so I don't have any knowledge what they have done in regards to mice in the recent years. But I wouldn't bother with it anymore, anyway.

    As for the keyboard, they are just farming the people that want to clean their keyboards, and next year they sell them the improved version with everything people are missing now. Easily forseeable.

    I still can't imagine it being easily kept clean though, as I am not sure if you can actually get the buttons off so you can get rid of anything trapped in there, or if it's just another useless gimmick.
    Will you get a review sample @Hilbert Hagedoorn ?
