The BlackWidow Elite uses Razer's Green mechnical switches. These only require 50G of actuation force and leave you with great tactile feedback and an audible clicky noise. Mechanical switches like this are great for typing or gaming or any other activity that requires a great deal of speed and accuracy. They are all about precision, and mechanical switches feel much better than other types of keyboards.

You'll also be able to fully customize this keyboard. For example, Razer Chroma gives you full RGB lighting on your keyboard but in a fun and unique way. Razer Chroma can actually sync your lighting effects with other Razer gear and even some third-party products like Philips Hue. Sync your keyboard to the game you're playing and get amazing lighting that matches what you're playing. With the individually backlit keys, you'll be able to choose from an entire spectrum of millions of colors.

There is also fully programmable macro support. Razer's Hypershift feature lets you remap complex commands using all keys and keystroke combinations. You'll be able to use Razer's software to customize this and the lighting.

The keyboard also comes with an ergonomic, magnetic wrist rest made of plush leatherette. The top plate is made with military-grade metal and is designed to last for years. The keyboard is compatible with most computers, but it also works with the Xbox One for basic input.

J.D. Levite has been in the deals game since 2012. He has posted daily deals at Gizmodo, The Wirecutter, The Sweethome, and now for Thrifter. He was there for the first Prime Day and has braved the full force of Black Friday. If you cut him, he bleeds savings. But don't try it for real. That's a metaphor.
