New gaming keyboards from Razer: BlackWidow V4 and V4 X

Just a few months ago, Razer introduced their groundbreaking BlackWidow V4 Pro keyboard, setting a new standard for gaming keyboards that elevate the gaming experience for users. Now, they are expanding on this success by unveiling two new models within the same family: the BlackWidow V4 and the BlackWidow V4 X, both of which we will explore in detail in this article.

Razer places great emphasis on providing advanced control and an immersive gaming experience with these two keyboards, achieved through the incorporation of their cutting-edge third-generation Razer mechanical switches. With various switch options available, users can select their preferred typing experience. The Razer Green switches offer tactile feedback and an audible click, providing a satisfying typing experience, while the Razer Yellow switches boast linear operation and ultra-fast activation for heightened sensitivity in gaming scenarios.


Razer BlackWidow V4 and V4 X: a real control tool

Let’s begin with the BlackWidow V4, a keyboard that goes beyond being a mere gaming peripheral and positions itself as the ultimate control center for your desktop. It boasts the iconic Razer Chroma RGB customizable key lighting, along with six dedicated macro keys, Doubleshot ABS key caps, and four multimedia keys to give you complete control over your PC.

Notably, this keyboard prides itself on being one of the fastest on the market, featuring a polling rate of 8,000 Hz (available via USB 3.0 only). Additional features include side lighting and a magnetic leatherette wrist rest for added comfort.

The only downside is its price, currently listed at $169.99 on the Razer online store (though not available in the Spanish store yet), which will likely translate to €189.99 when it arrives in the Spanish store and other brand distributors.

As for the V4X variant, it shares most features with the V4 but does not include the magnetic leatherette wrist rest. It retains the secondary multimedia keys and digital volume wheel, but stands out with internal foam that minimizes the sound of key presses for a quieter experience.

BlackWidow V4X

The BlackWidow V4 X model comes at a slightly lower price point, as it omits the wrist rest, and once it hits the shelves in Spain, it will be priced at €149.99.

By introducing these two new models, Razer has completed its BlackWidow family of products, offering a wide array of options to cater to various needs. According to Razer, it’s not just about playing games but truly “living” them. With these keyboards, you have the opportunity to find the perfect model that aligns with your preferences, turning it into more than just a peripheral—it becomes an extension of yourself during gameplay, enhancing your immersive gaming experience.
