New Razer BlackWidow Ultimate Is Water- And Dust-Proof

Adjust Comment Print

After releasing the Cynosa Chroma a couple of weeks ago, Razer is introducing yet another keyboard, and it's a refresh of the BlackWidow Ultimate this time around.

The new Razer BlackWidow Ultimate is now IP54 certified, which means that the keyboard is resistant to spills from water and problems from dust particles. On the surface, not much has changed, aside from the fact that the BlackWidow is now dust- and water-resistant.

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. They're rated at 80 million keystrokes too, on top of 10-key rollover and anti-ghosting.

Besides being able to put up with your eating and cleaning habits, the keyboard will come with a dynamic range of lighting effects with customisable lighting profiles as well as individually backlit keys.

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.

While the new BlackWidow Ultimate isn't quite at that level, Razer is confident that it is the most resilient board in its arsenal and could perhaps be one of the most protected boards available commercially.

The company also gives the option for fully programmable keys along with an "on-the-fly" macro recording function and a separate gaming mode.
