Ang you are very welcome, I'm thinking about ordering it too.

mbday630, I don't know if the game is voiced or not. There is a free trial version on the website that you can try.

Very nice Faust!

Reminds me that I need a new keyboard. I currently have very limited use of the 'W' key, which is quite a problem.

Thanks Mullane !

I was deciding between the BlackWidow , & the Roccat Isku , which was just released . The price was about the same , so I went with the BlackWidow . Besides , the BlackWidow is a mechanical keyboard , & I've got some loyalty to Razer to begin with . I have a friend who works for Razer . The BlackWidow isn't cheap , but it's worth every penny ! It will most likely be the last keyboard I ever buy !

I'm loving this board so far ! It makes the fabled old "click clack" noise the old IBM keyboards are known for . It's a bit noisy , but something I've already grown used to .

Is that round thing the magnet you are talking about? Is it some kind of sensor lock that can only be unlocked by scanning you fingerprint?

Very very nice Faust. I am partial to Razer as well. I have the Lycosa Mirror keyboard and love it. Shiney things make me happy. Smile

The surface of the keyboard is glossy in certain areas GreyFuss . Fingerprints show somewhat easily .

I have the standard version of the Lycosa , Ang , as well as the Tarantula . Practically all my gear is from Razer . Shiny things make me happy also , it's a pain sometimes to keep them clean !

I don't get it, whats the big deal about a Keyboard? Its just something you punch to type letters and numbers....right? I am still using the multimedia keyboard that came with my Dell Dimension 8300 back in the beginning of 2004. I even have it connected to all 4 of my computers using a KVM switch. The only other feature I use on it is the volume control knob. I even have 2 other brand new Keyboards that I haven't used that came with other computers. So what is the big deal about them?

A bit testy , aren't we ? The "big deal" , in this case , is I got a keyboard , probably the last I'll buy . The BlackWidow is a mechanical keyboard , meaning , each key uses it's own mechanical switch . Other boards , such as what you're using GF , use a membrane . A sheet of rubber , with a "dome" over each spot on the circuit board where the key sits . You usually press a key on a rubber dome board completely down before it will register , whereas , with a mechanical board , the key is registered before bottoming out , usually about half way through the key press . This makes for a faster response , both in general typing , & in games . The big advantage of a membrane board over a mechanical board , is membrane boards are almost always quieter . There are mechanical boards on the market now , that have silent keystrokes . Another differences , is price . A normal membrane board can be as cheap as $5 . The cheapest mechanical board I've seen is $80 (Razer BlackWidow "standard" edition ) . Another difference , is life span . A membrane board is normally rated at 10 to 15 million keystrokes , before the membrane will start to wear out . The average keystroke life on a mechanical board is 50 million . Another difference is the back lighting scheme . On a membrane board , only a small area is back lit , & the circuit board distributes the lighting . On a back lit mechanical board , each key is individually lit . There aren't too many mechanical boards that are back lit though . I've seen a few that don't have the letters on the keys . A bit scary actually ! A general difference (s) , between gaming boards & regular boards , besides lighting , is the ability to record macros , which , depending on the game , can come in quite handy . A macro , is a combination of certain keys to accomplish a certain specific task .

I can say this . After having my BlackWidow for the short time that I have , there is no way on earth I think I could ever use a membrane board again , at least at home . If anyone were to use a mechanical board long enough , they just might arrive at the same conclusion . I hope I explained enough !

A new thing is always somehow a big deal. I know for us adventurers id doesn't play a major role, but in general without a (nice) keybord no PC operation can be taken. Cool So I guess it's a big deal.

Seems to be a lot of negativity about my purchase of a new keyboard . Had I known I would receive this negativity , I never would have posted in the first place ! Remind me to never post in this forum ever again !

I am sorry you feel this way Faust. And I am sorry if you took any of my comments in a negative way, I didn't mean them in that way. I merely was wondering what and why any keyboard made a difference and you explained it very well. I must admit that when first reading your post I really thought you were talking about a Fingerprint Magnet. Very Happy

Faust...you better not stop posting all your new Razer toys on this forum. I love Razer and very fond of blue lights and always love to see who has what. ...what's new..what's old ..from PC toys to games to whatever on this forum. Very Happy
You would be missed.

Speaking of lights...do they serve any purpose besides looking nice? Can you read the keys in a dark room? Aren't they a distraction from playing a game and viewing the screen?

Yes...you can read the keys in a dark room . No distraction at all. If I turn it off, the keys are black. I can turn on just the WASD keys if I need to. Smile

That must come in handy for playing those keyboard controlled games. Big reason why I don't like keyboard games, I have to turn my attention away from the screen to see where the keys I need are. Do they make a mini keyboard with only the arrow or WASD keys on them or would a controler pad be better?
