Remember those custom mechanical key switches Razer introduced in March? They're similar to Cherry's MX designs, but they have a shorter stroke with less travel required to reach the actuation and reset points. The new switches are available in a range of Razer keyboards right now, and Newegg has given TR readers a discount on one of them. The BlackWidow Ultimate 2014 Stealth Edition is $20 off with promo code TR5W3, bringing the asking price down to $119.99. Shipping is free, too.
The Stealth Edition features Razer's orange switches, which provide tactile feedback but no audible click. They're rated for 45 grams of actuation force, just like Cherry's MX brown switches. Each key has individual backlighting, and other perks include programmable macros, an extra USB port, and built-in audio jacks. Razer says the keyboard supports 10-key rollover and 1000Hz polling rates, as well.
We haven't used the Stealth Edition ourselves, but it looks nice, and online reviews of this keyboard (as well as others equipped with Razer's custom switches) are positive. If you're interested, act soon. The coupon code expires at 11:59 PM Pacific Time on Friday.
