  • Razer redesigns its BlackWidow keyboard with IP54 water protection

Will you be picking up the IP54 rated water and dust resistant keyboard?

It's a unsafe situation for the average keyboard to find itself in, and so many inevitably fall victim to spilled drinks and sandwich crumbs. Sometimes these spills are minor where the liquid won't permanently damage our keyboards, but sometimes it can be pretty bad where it basically ruins it completely. Razer is arguably the most recognizable brand of the bunch, though, and the inclusion of water resistance in its flagship keyboard is bound to make the feature more commonplace.

Generally, we see IP ratings regarding smartphones, with the first number indicating how dust resistant the device is and the second referring to its protection from water.

Particularly of interest to gamers will be the mechanical key switches optimized for gaming in this instance, the Razer Green Switch.

What do you think of the latest mechanical gaming keyboard from Razer? The company has added 10 key roll-over anti-ghosting along with Razer Synapse software. Other specifications of the BlackWidow Ultimate include progammable keys with on-the-fly macro recording, a gaming mode, as well as 1000Hz ultrapolling.

As this is an Ultimate keyboard, there's no RGB Chroma lighting, but the keys are individually lit with Razer's range of lighting effects.
