The Razer BlackWidow Lite Stormtrooper limited edition mechanical keyboard (opens in new tab) is down to $69.99 on Amazon. That price is a match for the lowest we have ever seen. The keyboard more regularly sells for around $100 on Amazon and at other retailers like Target (opens in new tab). It has only dropped to $70 a couple of times during brief one-day sales, so it's a good bet this sale won't last very long either. The other versions (opens in new tab) of the BlackWidow Lite are going for around $81 or more and are definitely a lot more boring.

The keyboard uses Razer's Orange switches with tactile feedback and a low actuation force. Despite that, the O-Ring dampeners ensure they don't make a lot of noise. Has white LED backlighting and programmable macro support with Razer Hypershift.

First and foremost, this is a Razer BlackWidow mechanical keyboard. It is designed for gamers and for people who need some good feedback. It uses Razer's Orange mechanical switches, which will give you some tactile feedback with every keypress. They also require only 45 G of actuation force, which makes them great for high APM games and typing. The O-ring sound dampeners help reduce the key noise and typing fatigue so you won't feel it in your hands even after a long time. It's also a tenkeyless design with a detachable cable, so it's easy to travel with and helps reduce fatigue with the compact size.

The backlighting is White to match the Star Wars Stormtrooper theme. You do have full control over the brightness of that backlighting, too, along with the ability to customize what zones on the keyboard are lit and when. This is a limited edition keyboard with its unique design.

Razer Hypershift is a technology that allows for all the keys and keypress combinations to be remapped a second time. Use this to create complex macros, execute commands, and more. You can fully customize the whole thing with Razer's free software.

The mechanical switches are designed to last for 80 million clicks, and Razer covers the keyboard with a two-year warranty.
